So what I am about to tell you is the honest to God truth. I have been pregnant since late October 2012 and I didn’t know it until this week.
On Monday night I was sitting on the couch with David and I told him “Babe, this may be nothing, but the past 3 nights when I lay down I feel in my tummy what it feels like when a baby is in there.” That was literally the first time we talked about it because I honest to God thought there was no way I was pregnant, despite the fact that my stomach was starting to grow. I really thought I was just having a hard time post-labor getting my core back in shape.
Well he drove to Target at 9:45 and got two pregnancy tests and they were both very positive. We spent 3 hours laughing and looking at each other with blank stares wondering how the heck I could be pregnant this far and not even know it. But we had no idea how far I actually was. I guessed maybe 15-16 weeks or something. But I had no idea.
Well we couldn’t get into the doctor until today, and low and behold I have a 10 inch baby girl growing in me and I am almost 21 weeks. I have completely missed the first half of my pregnancy! What?!
Yes, it is true. I am due July 16th.
You may have noticed I haven’t blogged in a while. Well I had to make time for this one. David’s parents flew into town yesterday, we had a surprise breakfast for him this morning at restaurant, went straight to the doctors for the sonogram, tonight we are babysitting for some friends, tomorrow I am running the happiest 5k on the planet, and Sunday David is preaching. But I had to make time for this one. Many more blogs to come I’m sure on this dramatic start to my half finished pregnancy. Welcome to the shock of my century!
