No I’m not pregnant again!! But I do remember the excitement and nervousness I felt when my husband and I first found out we were pregnant. It was November of 2010. We were shocked because we weren’t quite expecting it to happen so fast! I kept looking at the faint line on the pregnancy test and thinking “Is that really a line?” I think I bought 3 or 4 pregnancy tests just to be sure, and even then I wasn’t quite convinced. Who do we tell first, how do we do it? All these thoughts were running through my mind. We decided to call my husband’s parents and tell them we were “in the area” (although we lived 40 minutes away) and go over to share the news. So we drove over their and began to have small talk. Eventually my husband said “I don’t think we are going to be able to make it to Italy.” (We were supposed to be going that Summer to celebrate their anniversary). They were a little bummed about it and then my husband said “You are going to get a great anniversary present though.” His dad asked, “Are you pregnant?” We said Yes! And his mom just started screaming and crying. They were both thrilled and overjoyed because they were going to soon welcome their first grandchild to the family. Maybe in a couple years we will rebook that trip to Italy.
