Mike and I found out on Friday, March 28th that we are pregnant with our first bundle of joy! We are so thrilled beyond belief. Our families have been so supportive and thoughtful. When the test first showed up positive, Mike started pacing the hall mumbling to himself. I think as it becomes more real to him, he will be able to relax a little. I've been preparing for this for the last 3 months, so I'm holding up a bit better. Mike's pointing at his baby in my tummy, but you can't really tell.
What caused this massive change of heart? (For those of you who know me well, or thought you did, I've been very clear about not wanting to have babies. Ever.)
Over Thanksgiving 2007 Mike's cousin was sealed to his wife and adopted son. We went to their home to share in the joy and I was able to spend a significant portion of our visit holding and cuddling their new baby. Little did I know ... babies up to 6 months old secret a hormone that changes a woman's brain and makes her "baby hungry". I didn't stand a chance. That Christmas I told Mike that I wanted to have a baby. We got pregnant on my birthday while staying at my parents home for Spring Break. I've counted back to when I think I ovulated and I think the baby will be born November 23rd. My doctor set my due date for December 8th.
