I’m totally freaked out that I’m jinxing myself… but I’m bursting at the seams and HAVE to share my news! Darling Husband and I are PREGNANT!!!!! I got my BFP this morning. I almost didn’t take the test because yesterday was a BFN and I’ve had absolutely no symptoms, not even any resembling PMS. I reluctantly took the test this morning anyways because Darling Husband is coming home tonight after being away for the week, so if there was any chance I was, I wanted to know ahead of time so I can surprise him somehow. We’ll take another test together tomorrow morning and hopefully my line will be darker for Darling Husband to see!
Also, this might be totally disgusting but I’m sitting here with the two test strips sitting in a container beside me. It might be crazy but I just can’t let the stupid things out of my sight. I have a very real feeling I’m going to be one of those take 1,000,000 tests just to be sure types.
AHHH, I’m just so stunned and excited. I was SURE this month wasn’t it. I felt/feel no different. My poor dog is sitting beside me panting because I’m acting like such a spazz!!
P.S. It feels good to no longer be a creepy Babies board lurker

I’m thinking I might get a few balloons (baby colors) and make a “Welcome Home Daddy” sign. I don’t think the sign alone would work because he’s already “Daddy” to our pets… hah, I feel like a dork admitting that 🙂

Awww…Congrats!!! I think the baloons are a great idea. And don’t worry my husband and I are mom and dad to our dog. lol!
I didn’t do anything cute when I found out I was pregnant-I was so stunned and I just blurted it out as soon as he walked through the door after work. I’m still mad at myself-but we weren’t trying and I was in such shock.

Thanks to everyone!
@flamingred: I figured I wasn’t alone on that one 🙂 And I’m like you, I’d have totally blurted it out. That and if he were home when I tested, he would have totally heard my reaction. Luckily he’s not back until this evening so I’ll be able to work out the logistics without putting my foot in my mouth!

@forforever: Now that I’ve had almost nine months to think it over, I think I would have wrapped up the pregnancy test like a suprise present and given it to him when he came home. That would be cute too!
