The Beginnings of a Radical Pregnancy

February 22nd, 2008~
We started remodeling our new home. Grandma Blue came over and helped Jason take down all the wallpaper with the steamer, wash the glue off the walls, spackle, sand, paint, and clean. I stayed at the apartment with Teagan and packed everything while also cleaning the place to make our move easier. I finish the day feeling totally drained... unusually tired... but I just contribute it to the stress and energy I'm using getting moving done.

We all got together and finished painting and cleaning. Our friends, Heidi and Forest, Jeremy, my brothers, my dad, and our friend Josh came over to help us clean up and get everything moved quickly. The majority got moved, and then we all went out to eat afterwards. I am feeling very excited to be spending the first night in our new home!!

Since we started moving, I hadn't been taking my temperature every morning, so I had no idea where I was at in my cycle.. except that I was quite a few days past ovulation. I took a pregnancy test at 5:30am (I couldn't sleep!!) and it came back negative. :( No worries, I tell myself; it will be positive tomorrow!!
I spend the rest of the day unusually tired but I have energy. It was kind of weird! I got a lot of unpacking done and the house clean. Daniel and I also went over to the apartment and got the rest of the stuff out of there.

I wake up AGAIN at 5:30am... so weird, I think. I've been getting up at about 7:30 for the past two years or so, so I'm not sure what is going on...
until I decide to take another pregnancy test.
Positive! Holy crap, is that really positive?? I thought. It was so so light, but it was there, that elusive vertical line that has been hiding from me for the past 6 months! I just walked out into the livingroom, so overwhelmed... and cried. When Jason came home, I had him look at the test to be sure I wasn't hallucinating. He said he saw it too!! We are just so so happy :)

I take another test; positive again!! This time the line is darker, too! Now I know why I've been SO SO tired! I take this test into my mom's work so she can see it.
I spend the day in Alex, and I tell my brother, Ashley, and my auntie Michelle the good news at breakfast. Then, Ash and I head over to Ron's Warehouse, and I snatch up a cool digital pregnancy test. Those faint lines just weren't doing it for me ;). That night, I took the digital, and the beautiful word "Pregnant" came right up!!! Everyone was then told that a new baby would be in our family come November!
