Since I had a few other things I needed to get, (prenatal vitamins, water bottles, etc.) I went to the nearest Target. I got the few things that the nurse told me to get and headed to the infant section. Everything was so little!! I ended up getting a new born onezie with a little dog face on the butt (so cute!) and says "I Love Daddy" on the front. My husbands birthday was the next week, May 10, so I figured I would just give him an early birthday present. His reaction was probably the best and I laughed about it for hours, still am. Best description, deer in the head lights. Ready or not, here we go!

Wow! Pretty much the only word that came to mind for about 24 hours. I woke up Thursday, May 3 thinking that I needed to take a pregnancy test just to make sure I wasn't pregnant. See, for those who don't know, I was scheduled to have surgery on Tuesday, May 8. While my husband and I were not "trying" we weren't "not trying" at the same time. Since my surgery was scheduled so soon, I felt that I would just make sure. I took the at home pregnancy test in the morning as soon as I woke up. After about a minute I looked at it again and only saw one line, not pregnant. I went through most of my day without looking at it again, big mistake. Around 12:30pm I went back to my bedroom to take a shower and checked it again, more to throw it away than anything. To my surprise, there were two lines!! I was pregnant. I know most people do this, and doctors say you really don't need to bother, but I went as quickly as possible to the nearest store about bought 2 more box's of pregnancy tests. When I got home I took 3 more. After three minutes, they all told me what I already knew, all positive. I immediately called my OBGYN and got an appointment for the same day to get the blood test. I needed to know right away if I was really pregnant so I could cancel my surgery. Within 10 minutes I was there and the blood test was done. After talking to the nurse, I had a short list of things I needed to do. On the top of that list, tell my husband..
