 I have sat down to write this post a dozen times it seems like in the last several weeks but couldn't bring myself to do it. I really want to DOCUMENT this entire pregnancy from beginning to end for obvious reasons #1. If you don't come here much then you should know that this is our FIRST child #2 I want this to be a scrapbook of all the things going on in our life! :)

July 13th, 2013 was my 27th Birthday. The day started with breakfast with my family (B had to work) at Another Broken Egg and a little shopping afterwards.  Later that day, I met up with my SIL Candace and close friend Rachel for a pedicure and some girl time!

Please note, at this time I have ZERO reason to believe that I was pregnant, I wasn't late BUT had felt a little "off" the last few days. I am a person who KNOWS my body, I just know when something isn't quite "right."

While at our pedi appt. I asked Candace several ?s about how she felt when she first found out she was pregnant.. to see if her response would be similar to how I had been feeling. I kind of brushed it off and went on about my day.

Brandon would be off around 6:00 that evening and we all had plans to eat dinner for my Birthday, so once our pedicure was over I rushed home to get ready.

In the back of my mind, I thought I should stop at Walgreen's and pick up a pregnancy test BUT ended up driving right by there and TOTALLY forgot.. As you can see I wasn't really worried about it or thinking I was pregnant at all. When I turned into my driveway, it dawned on me that I didn't stop... and something just TOLD me to go back and pick on up ..... so I did.

I purchased 2 test from Walgreen's and headed back home... Still not worried, I had other things on my mind, like what I was going to wear to dinner... how I couldn't wait for a glass of red wine and sushi from Chuck's!

When I returned home, I picked up around the house a little and started running my bath to get ready for dinner. I grabbed the Walgreen's bag and decided hey, why not?!

Took test #1 and within seconds it read "PREGNANT!" (It was a digital test) As soon as that WORD popped up on that little screen I started FREAKING my FREAK! I could not even DIAL my sister's phone # fast enough.

The phone rang 5-6 times and I just knew that I was about to get the voicemail. I was just about to hang up when she answered "Hello"..... I screamed into the phone as I am crying... "I'M PREGNANT!"

I know that your sister, may or may not be the first person that you are SUPPOSE to tell when you find out news like this BUT HELLO my husband wasn't expected to be home for another 2 hours.........
