May 8th, 2010

The day we were waiting for.  In October of 2009, I turned 30...whew!  Then in November, Jacob turned 30.  After his birthday, we talked about trying for a baby...yes, a baby.  So, in December we officially started "trying". Nothing happened, January came, nothing happened, February came, nothing happened, March came, nothing happened, but that was ok because my sister was getting married in December 2010 and that would have put our due date on her wedding day...April came, nothing happened.  Then May came...something happened.  During the month of April, I knew something had happened. I felt, well, just different.  So when it came time for May I wasnt surprised by the outcome of the test, but I think Jacob was.  All week he had asked me if I had peed on a stick yet.  I kept telling him no because I "knew" what it was going to tell me. So, finally, Saturday came and I peed on a stick. He had gone to town for something that morning and I was getting ready to go to work.  When he came home, I told him to go look in the bathroom.  He did.  He came back in the bedroom where I was getting ready and was very excited. He gave me a huge hug. I told him that he could not tell anyone until we were between 12-15 wks along, bc that is what the books say to do. He said ok.  I was off to work and he was out the door again to some "farm work".

I did good. I didnt tell anyone. Im pretty good at keeping secrets.  I did find out that my husband, on the other hand, is not good at keeping secrets.  He told one of his friends right away. Thankfully his friend is good at keeping secrets.  That's how we found out we were pregnant.
