I've got a...



..along with a double decker taco, teddy grahams and a milkshake.

I was a little hesitant to announce on the blog, but since I've told all our friends, work people, announced on facebook, I thought "what the heck." For those of who still don't understand the cinnamon bun in the oven: I'm pregnant.

Rob and I found out I was pregnant a week before we went to Cabo. I had heard the dollar store sold pregnancy tests so I went one day and bought 10. Pregnancy tests are usually $10-15 so $1 was a steal. I took a test of out pure boredom. I wasn't due to get my period for three days but I decided to test anyway. I took a dollar store test and got a faint line. These tests are very chinsy so I figured it was defected. The box even said don't test until you are at least 1 day late. I went online, did some research, and found that "a line is a line." Still not convinced, I took another dollar store test and got the same result.

I went to Rob and told him I took a dollar store test and there is a second line but I really don't think it means anything because the line was so faint and it was early. He didn't think the second line was a true line and said I should go get a digital test. I was soon Target bound for a fancy digital test.

I took the test and pretty quickly, I got this:




I took the stick into Rob's office and said "I don't know, I still can't tell!" I gave him the stick that clearly said "Pregnant" and he looked at me and said something like "we're pregnant?!" This is something we've been wanting and planning for but when it actually happened, it was a little shocking. When we first started trying, I had bought a couple items to give to Rob that I thought he would like. I got them on etsy:



They are two bibs. One with guitars on it and one with a motherboard on it. I thought he would be more excited with these than a pink bib with flowers on it. Plus, we can use these whether its a boy or a girl.

After we found out, we made some phone calls. I always thought I'd have a fun way to announce to family and friends, in person, but when it actually happened, I wanted to call as soon as possible. We didn't tell everyone in the beginning but the ones we did tell we told about 5 minutes after I took the test.

We had our first dr.'s appointment on May 13th and saw the heartbeat. This is our first ultrasound picture at 7 weeks 2 days.



We had our second appointment on June 10 and heard the heartbeat. It sounded like a choo choo train. I was happy that she found the hearbeat right away. I guess it's normal to not be able to hear it this early. After our appointment I went next door and filled up some vials of blood. Rob and I then went out to breakfast before I had to head to work. We think we are going to try to make that a tradition (he plans to go to every appointment with me).

Right now Baby Wagner is about the size of a lime and my due date is December 28.

We are very excited about Baby Wagner!

Your comparison of the baby's heartbeat to a "choo-choo train" is right on :) I was so shocked to learn I was pregnant with Ashley (the days before pregnancy tests, dollar store or otherwise - we still found out we were p.g. when "the rabbit died" - so all on one day I learned I was pregnant AND heard the heartbeat...my doctor, who was from one of the Carolina states and had a wonderful soft drawl, got out his little heartbeat monitor thing and said, "Let's just see if we can hear that 'ol baby's heartbeat!" It was FANTASTIC!!!
