I had all these grand ideas for how to tell Neil that we were pregnant. You know the cute ones with baby gifts, pregnancy tests, or song? Well, it didn't really go down like that.
I was in my first week of a new job. On this day, all new faculty was invited to a dinner. We went, ate, had good conversation, etc. I knew I was pregnant as we sat around that table. I don't know why or how but I had this urge to get home. Now. As soon as we got through the door, I locked myself in the bathroom and took a test. I put it away to let it work and went about my nightly routine. I figured, as soon as Neil goes to bed, I'll look at the results, and plan my creative announcement for the next morning.
As I was getting ready for bed I heard Neil ask, "What's First Response?"
"Um. What? No. Nothing"
Apparently, I left the box at the top of the trash can...womp womp.
So I had to tell him.
"Its a pregnancy test."
"Are you pregnant?"
"I don't know I haven't looked"
"Well look already"
" Ok. You read the directions and I'll look. Is one line or two lines pregnant?"
"We have two lines"
"Are you serious"
His face was priceless. Excitement and awe rolled into one. Standing there in our tiny bathroom, jumping up and down.
I didn't get my cute announcement and I do wish I had a camera to capture his face but it's something I will never forget.
He made me take another one first thing in the morning...just to be sure :)
