I'm a defective typewriter

I do know that I have been neglecting this bloggie for the last... oh three weeks? Yeah, three and a half weeks, actually. It's memorable because the day after my last post I randomly took an HPT "for fun" and it looked like this:



Holymoly.

I'm pretty sure that means I'll be adding a job description and title come August/September. :)

It was quite a surprise, actually. I was packing to go to Nevada for Christmas and ran across an old box of home pregnancy tests that I'd had forever... I figured it would be fun to use it instead of throw it away (I'd never taken one before) and I was expecting my period that day anyway. So I took it. You know, for fun.

It was positive. POSITIVE??!!

Rob and I just looked at each other blankly for a second and then came to the same conclusion; it was an old test, so it was faulty, right? That had to be it! We threw on our jackets and ran to the store to get a new one, to be sure. Actually we got about 3 different brands just in case. They all gave the same result as the old one. That can only mean one thing... if all goes well we're gonna have a kid! I'm still adjusting to the whole idea, it was such a shock! We were planning on waiting until Rob was done with TBI, but I guess the Lord had other plans for us.

All I have to say is that 2009 is going to be a whole new kind of adventure!

(ten points to anyone who knows what movie the title of this post is from)

Edited to add: according to my calculations, I'm about 6 and a half weeks into it so far. And I feel fine. :)

Nice. I recall the morning my wife took the test after we'd been kinda wondering. Quite the surprise.

Rosanna said...

Jenni!! That's super cool! I was just saying today that I wish I knew how to knit because I gave away all my (ugly) sweaters and now find myself sweaterless in the dead of winter in MN. Maybe a closet purge is best done in the springtime? hahaha But I never thought of knitting for a teeny-tiny! How cool! Thanks for the support, too. :)

Good job, Kat L... Grease is the word! ;)

I love that Grease quote! Again so thrilled for you and Rob. It's a comforting feeling that God is control of this pregnancy since He's the one that decided to surprise you with it. I remember thinking that about my own "surprise" pregnancy. Congrats girl!
