it happened at 230 on saturday morning, january 30th. the hubs and i had gone to a "quitter" party the night before in honor of ashley (she left AVA) and once home, he'd fallen asleep in his chair and me in bed with the dogs. when he woke up to come to bed at 230, everyone stirred. me, the girls, and him. since i was awake, i figured i might as well get up and use the restroom. then it hit me. the first "go" of the morning is the best to test for pregnancy because of the concentration of hormones. i'd already decided i was going to take a test on saturday morning - my period was due to start the next day - so i grabbed a test from under the sink and took it. i didn't really expect anything. i set it aside while it processed and let remy out and back in and then went back to check it. there was a line. in the test window, not just the control window. i thought i knew what it meant, but i had to grab the box to double check. i stared at the line, at the box, at the line again. omg, i'm pregnant. i ran into our bedroom and turned on the light. the hubs had just gotten settled in and irritably said, "what's wrong?" "we're pregnant" was my shouted, smile filled response. he said "what?!?! let me see." and i shoved the test in his hand. then he told me it was really faint and to take another in the morning. so i went and got the box again and brought it into our room and made him compare it. and read it. and confirm that any line, even faint, is a positive result. we both just laughed. and thanked God and laid back down in bed in shock. good shock, but shock. when we awoke for real a few hours later, i took another test. yep, still preggo. we texted his brother and sister-in-law and told them and planned how and when we'd tell his parents. after walking to breakfast in franklin, i took another test. yep, still preggo! then we started trying to decide how to tell my parents and came up with a very red-neck idea. once we had that settled, we went to my parents and gave them their gifts. they were excited to say the least. we told his parents the next night. we are so excited. we head to the doctor on the 22nd to see our little miracle for the very first time.
