I decided that if nothing had happened by the next day, I would go get the medicine, but decided to take a test just to be sure. A line showed up, a really faint line, but a line nonetheless. I didn't believe it, and I definitely didn't want to tell Ryan unless I knew for sure. (The line in this picture is super hard to see, but in person, it was really there).
(The top test was the first one and the bottom was the second)
There was definitely a line, and it was definitely darker than before. I still didn't want to tell Ryan. We were so excited about the house and about lawn mowers (yes we are old) and painting, and I didn't want to get excited about "nothing" again. So I decided I would wait until the next day.
Obviously I went a little crazy at this point,. Ryan at this point was probably confused why I had to pee so often haha cause I seriously went in there like 50 times. But now I for sure knew I wasn't crazy but I needed to see the word "pregnant" so I took a digital test that I had been hiding in the bathroom stuff.
I honestly couldn't believe it. Or keep it a secret any longer. So I set up a little display in our room.
We had been painting all day, so I had to think of ways to get Ryan into our room. I asked him to see if my water was in there, then to grab my phone charger, then something else and finally I just told him I was tired and needed a nap. He let me go "nap" (really I was just sitting there waiting for him to come in) and about 30 minutes later her came in to check on me. That's when he finally saw it. He stood in the doorway with the cutest grin on his face and asked "does this mean? Are you really? Are we having a baby?"
There was a lot of laughter and a lot of tears, but mostly just happiness. This was it. It felt real this time, our little family of two was growing, and we couldn't have been more excited.
