A year ago, my then-5-year-old son was diagnosed with a ruptured appendicitis. After emergency surgery and 5 days in the hospital, I came home with him. I had been home overnight two days earlier (while my mom stayed with him at the hospital) so I could be with my 2yo son. I'd taken a couple of pregnancy tests on a whim, despite knowing full well that AF was imminent. In fact, after taking the tests (which had this shadowy, evaporation line on them), I got out my Keeper so I wouldn't have to worry about doing anything at the hospital. The day we came home, I glanced back at those tests, still sitting on the counter, and was beyond shocked to see they weren't evap lines - they were PINK. And more tests, including an expired digital, all confirmed it. I was in disbelief!
I texted my MW (who had just been over, visiting) and told her we'd be seeing a lot more of her! I was in such shock that I couldn't bear to wait and figure out a better way to tell DH. I stuck the results end of the digital test in his shorts pocket, and eventually took the shorts to him, as I needed him to go get DS's pain meds from the pharmacy. He dug in his pocket to find his phone, made a funny face, got his phone out... but no test. Then he got dressed, went looking for his keys, made a funny face, again, and pulled out the stick... "What's this?" he asked. And all I could do was shrug and look like and say, "I have no idea!" in that "Oh. My. Goodness. I had NO clue!" sort of way. That was quite a week!!
And there's a whole lot more pink in this house now! It's been such an amazing journey: what is most likely our last pregnancy; our final birth; our first baby girl. I can't believe she's already 3.5 months old!
So, who else found out around this time last year? How did you tell your DH/SO? My sweet baby is sleeping and I'm in the mood to reminisce.
