Yep, it's Official

Funny thing about knowing: you're right half the time. After a false alarm about a month ago, I am now officially knocked up. Although I wasn’t feeling well the previous couple of days, I knew something extra was in my tummy when I was lying on my stomach in the pillow meeting room and it felt like there was a hard mound in my uterus. After speaking with Lucky during lunch last Thursday, June 5th, he said I should check so before I went to Kaz’s house for a BBQ I stopped over at Rite Aid and picked up a pregnancy test. I didn’t know what to expect and I didn’t know how I was going to take this test with tons of people in the house but I had to try.

After picking up Kate and finding our way up to the house, Kate became distracted with Kaz’s son and his toys and allowed me to make my way to the bathroom. Of course it had to be on the other side of the wall from the party. There were maybe 10-15 people having a good time while I’m peeing on a stick. The test said to wait three minutes for a result but I had to wait no more than one before I had my answer: pregnant. I actually laughed out loud for a second before trying to figure out what to do. Being pregnant was not actually a surprise as Lucky and I have been trying for some time, but being pregnant was a surprise. It’s one of those things that you think you’re prepared for but it doesn’t hit you until it actually happens.

I knew that I had to tell Lucky first but I didn’t want to tell him over the phone and I wanted him to know before all of my coworkers. I figured I would tell him after the Erykah Badu concert when we were alone because I knew if even one of my coworkers overheard us everyone would know before the next morning. My brother Scott was at our house when I got home so I didn’t have a chance to tell Lucky before I passed out in bed-crap. I didn’t know what to do as I didn’t want to tell him while he was sleeping the next morning so I decided to put the pregnancy stick on the dashboard of the rodeo. A few hours later he calls and we talk for a few moments before I can hear him get into the car asking “What’s this?” before going “OH MY GOD!” Then silence. I wait for a few seconds before he asks if I’m pregnant and then of course we go into the whole “how far along?” schpeel. I kind of had to talk in code because everyone at work could hear my phone call and everyone listens to phone calls but I didn’t want everyone to know yet so I’m sure my convo sounded weird to everyone at the office with “don’t tell anyone….yes….no…..I’ll talk to you later about it.”

Friday night I called my entire family to make sure they heard about it from us instead of MySpace or some random person and of course Lucky had to tell everyone at the shop first. I changed my MySpace name to Mommy x2 and Lucky changed his status to announce a new baby and it has snowballed from there. I have a dr appointment Thursday so until then I think I’m about four weeks along but that can change at any time. We’ll see how it goes….

At least Kate and Lucky are as excited as I am….
