I’ve been bursting with nerves and excitement waiting for the perfect time to make the BIG announcement, and today is finally the day!
We’ll be having a baby in November!
I remember sitting in the bathroom with THE STICK and seeing the result and not believing my eyes. I was thinking I should probably look at Pinterest to find some clever way to tell Aaron but yeah right, there was no way I was going to be able to wait. I was shaking when I walked into the living room to show Aaron what I had just seen. I looked at him with stunned eyes and pushed the stick in his direction. We were both like, “Uhhh… no way!”
I proceeded to take 3 more pregnancy tests and Aaron took one too just to make sure it wasn’t a weird batch we had gotten. Aaron’s not pregnant;) but all of mine said the exact same thing as the first.
The whole thing has felt really surreal and I still don’t even feel like it’s actually me when I hear myself say, “I’m pregnant”. It’s really an out-of-body experience. I’ve been wanting to have a baby for a really long time… it’s always other people who are pregnant… not me. My heart would ache a little when I found out others were pregnant, and not because I wasn’t happy for them, of course I was! But, I was also a little sad for me. For the mamas still waiting for your babies to come, I’m sending you a hug, and please trust that your baby will come when the time is right…
We’re going to go for the big surprise and not find out the sex of the baby and we’re also going to try to do the minimalist baby thing (bare minimum on the baby gear, 2nd hand and used items) so, we’ll see all that how that goes!;)
We’re so happy to share this news with you all, and I’m looking forward to hearing about all the tips you have for me about what stuff we really need and what stuff we totally don’t need…?
With love… feeling happy and blessed, xo, Anna
p.s. isn’t this funny
