(I'm still really excited, can you tell?)

So i JUST, like 3 minutes ago, found out i am pregnant! Due June 22nd!

I'm only 8dpo and DH is away on business and i promised him i would wait to test until he is home. He said "yeah right, and laughed" so i know he isnt EXPECTING IT. Anyway - im going to the dentist for a cleaning in, oh, 10 minutes....and then im going to see the business of being born with a couple of girlfriends and i really really want to tell them. What should i do? I was thinking of just texting DH a picture of the test, would that be wicked lame?

I was planning on writing "Hi daddy" on my belly if i had waited and tested when he was home....but there is NO WAY i wont burst and scream "IM PREGNANT" the moment i see him, so i already blew that plan.

EEEEEKS I AM SO HAPPY!!!! What should i do?

Oh i also am picking DD up from my moms tonight and my mom IS gonna know, i know she will...she knew last time. You can read me like a book.

I might just scream right now! So many of the awesome mamas from TTC have graduated into the June DDC!!! ::::

You got a BFP at 8dpo? You must have a really baby in there! Congrats, wasn't this your first cycle trying?

Peaceful mama to three blissfully-birthed and incredible small people: dd10, dd7 and ds5. Always awed and so thankful to be a midwife.

Thanks 2in09 - i did exactly what you suggested! He was psyched and called me crying!!! awwwww...

We're both so excited.

I'm so happy to see so many of the mamas from the TTC boards here too. This was actually my 2nd month trying, but if i didnt happen this month we were gonna wait until March. I was soooo hoping this was my month - goes well with my screen name too, and my due date is only a week off from my daughters birthday. June is sure a busy month.

Thanks for all the welcomes! I hope do have a sticky baby and will be sticking around here for a while! yay!!!! I cant believe it!!!!
