Positive or Negative?!?!

Robbie was at work and I was on Christmas Break the morning of December 23rd. That day marked 2 days late of my period. What to do?! Take a pregnancy test, duh. I took the test....the kind that would make a plus sign if preggo. Well, after the dreaded 2 minutes, I looked at the test and I could see a very faint plus sign. It was so light, that I pulled out the instructions to get some advice. The instructions clearly said that if you can see both lines that make the plus sign, that it meant positive. No matter how faint the lines were. FOR REAL?!?! I was talking to myself saying, "oh my God is this real? is this true?!" I was in shock. So, I did what anyone would do... I drove to Walgreen's and bought another test! This time, I bought the kind that said "pregnant" or "not pregnant"! Ha! As soon as I got home, I took it. And it said PREGNANT!!! I started giggling, smiling, and crying at the same time!!

The rest of the day was pure torture because I wanted to tell Robbie FIRST and in person. I had to wait until he got home from work.

All day I was shaking, had an upset stomach, and was so excited to tell my hubby about our baby-to-be. It didn't even cross my mind to come up with any cute ways to tell Robbie, like I had always envisioned before. My brain was just totally focused on the fact that we were going to have a baby.

Finally Robbie got home. I could see him coming up the back sidewalk so I met him at the door. I opened it before he could and the first thing that popped in my head is what I said- "Are you ready?!" Robbie looked so confused and said- "Ready for what?!" I just kept repeating myself and he wasn't getting it so I showed him the positive test that I had behind my back. You should have seen his face. He dropped his things and had a huge smile from ear to ear! We hugged and laughed and I let him have his in shock moment for a little bit.


  1. I love how you told Robbie! It's original and even cuter that he didn't know what you were asking him what he was ready for :)

  2. awwwwwwwwwwwww, Ash! I just got teary eyed reading this! You and Robbie are going to be awesome parents! Congratulations!!! :) Love you!

  3. Awww!!! The very end brought tears to my eyes! Robbie has always been amazing with Christopher; I know he is going to be a great daddy!!! (and of course you'll be a great mommy, too!)
