As I sit here typing these words, I can still hardly believe we’re having a baby! If I’m being totally honest, I didn’t really know if this day would happen for me/us. I mean, I knew that starting a family was something I’d “like to do one day, Lord willing”, but to think that day is HERE – it’s so crazy. Lol
I’m actually already 22 weeks pregnant and it is just so mind blowing to me how quickly time is passing by. I found out pretty early on that I was pregnant and well, I just couldn’t believe it at first. I had a feeling though that something was up because I was craving avocado toast with an egg basically every day. The weird thing about that is that I hardly ever eat eggs, but I REALLY wanted eggs. 😂 And I was also extremely fatigued. I’d literally fall asleep at 7:30pm and sleep through the whole night. It was a whole other level of “I’m tired”. Haha After a few days of this out-of-the-ordinary behavior, I went to Publix and grabbed a two-pack pregnancy test from Clearblue. I took the rapid test and didn’t have to wait very long to see that pink line (it was not faint)!
The day I took the test, we had family from out of town coming over for dinner, so I didn’t have much time to process it all. I decided not to tell my husband and instead quickly placed an order on Amazon for a baby book to surprise him with. The next day, I took the digital test and it said “PREGNANT”! So I was definitely certain that I was indeed pregnant. I told my husband that evening and it was a priceless moment – one that I’ll never forget. ❤️
I did film both of our reactions and also the reaction of our families! If you’d like to see, here’s the video link. We are truly over the moon excited the Lord has blessed us with this precious little life. 🤰🏻
