The day I found out I was pregnant

Well ok it started the night before,  May 8th. I knew I was supposed to get my period that day. But I was tired and sluggish, and just kind of felt sad, and I couldn't figure out why. Looking back I think I felt sad because I knew I was supposed to get my period, it didn't come, but I knew it was too good to be true that I was pregnant, and I "knew" I was going to be disappointed. So I went to walgreens, bought a pregnancy test, "knowing" it was going to be negative. I waited until after dinner and took the pregnancy test, IT DIDN'T WORK. great. That works well with my feeling crappy already. I had a thought in my head, that maybe God doesn't want to give me a positive test when i am feeling down like this. But quickly pushed that thought aside, I went to bed pretty early and dreamt that I was pregnant, I woke up at 3:30 having to pee, I told myself to go back to sleep and next time I wake up I will take the test. I woke up at a little after 6 am and I woke up and went straight to the bathroom, in that 3 second walk, I knew I was pregnant. I peed on the stick, and watched, and it was instantly positive, even before the control line. I stared at it until the control was there. Thinking "oh my gosh, i am pregnant, oh my gosh." It really was soo surreal!! I went to the side of the bed where Jordan was sleeping and I poked his arm and said "Jordan, I think I am pregnant" his response "why" and I said " I peed on a stick and it told me I was" He hopped out of bed and went to look at the stick. He stared at it intently. I could feel his excitement. He crawled back into bed, and I did too to snuggle him before I had to get ready for work. I told Jordan I was going to call the doctor ASAP, he said he thought I should probably take another test just to make sure since the first one crapped out on me. So I drove to work, took a break as soon as target opened, ran to target, got 3 pregnancy tests, went into my work bathroom and took another test. :) It came out positive again! I called Jordan and said ok its official! We had decided then that we would tell our parents that night! I worked all day, I told my sister, who was BEYOND ecstatic for us!! She cried, and thanked God for this blessing in our family!! Have I told you, I love my sister? :) I got home and took a nap, ITS TOTALLY JUSTIFIED NOW!  I am growing a baby!  I need it! :) I woke up, sat around, Jordan got home and off we went to dinner with his mom. Right after we got our food Jordan made the announcement!! :) She was shocked and excited! We finished up our dinner with fun pregnancy talk, and then headed home to pick up the porkchop. :) We put his shirt on him and headed to my parents. We videotaped the reaction of my mom...

My dad walked in shortly after (at the end of the video you can hear my dad say "whats going on out here") it took him a minute to understand that I was going to be having a baby, but he was excited! He doesn't show it, but just a "congratulations, I'm happy, I like this news" My mom called the next morning and said they kept calling each other grandma and papa. :) So fun!

We are so so excited!!
