You guessed it!

I am pregnant, and while that may not seem like it should be that much of a shock, let me give you an idea of who you're dealing with.
My husband and I just got married seven months ago, and we always pride ourselves on being planners; carefully thinking out every decision. Ha.
Graduate college, check;
Get jobs, check;
Buy a house, check;
Wait to have sex until marriage, check; (thank goodness, otherwise this blog would be called "knocked up and getting hitched!)
Get married, check;
Wait five years to have kids, che....whoa not so fast, you're having a baby...now!!!
We have come to realize that our planning is God's way of making sure he gets a good belly laugh when he switches things up!

Two weeks ago, everything was different. We were talking about taking a trip to Mexico with friends of ours in June.

"Isn't it great that we can travel right now while we don't have kids," says my husband. Ha.

Two days later hecomes home to me crying while watching "Waitress." By the way, this is the worst movie to watch if you think you are pregnant. I convinced myself that it just wasn't possible the day before (I was on the pill), but after the movie I wasn't so sure. My husband didn't seem too concerned which made me feel better...for about an hour. I called my best friend, Jamie. She also told me that I probably wasn't pregnant, but if it would make me feel better, to go and get an at-home test. I did, both of those were positive. So...instead of believing them, I went and got two more, positive again, ahhh! After four tests, I was beginning to get the picture, but my husband wasn't. He said the tests were too vague and he wanted to wait until I saw a doctor. Two days later, it was official, I was 6 1/2 weeks pregnant. Holy cow!!

We both dealt in different ways. I talked constantly to my friends and mom, and he bought a TV. Yep, a big, LCD, flat screen television. I call it his, "oh my God, I'm going to be a dad" TV!

We told our parents, siblings and a couple of our closest friends right away. I'm not exaggerating at all when I tell you that they were all way more excited than we were at first. This helped; we needed people to tell us how great it was going to be so we would start to believe it too!

As you can imagine this is definitely changing things. We are now saving for a child-friendly vehicle rather than a vacation. I can't lie, I am pretty excited about this part....I've always wanted to be a soccer mom and now I get to get my SUV early, wahoo! I know, I am such a tool! I also catch my husband looking at houses in a nearby suburb; I think he's afraid we are going to have to send the kid to school out of the womb!

So, we are now planning in a whole new way, but we are determined to have fun and I promise to keep you updated as we go along!!

Congratulations! I love that you knew before you really knew and I love that Brady still didn't believe you after 4 tests!
