Yesterday I decided to watch a movie in the basement while I made an inventory of things we wanted to give away, clothes, books, etc. So I chose the movie Seabiscuit and sat down to a mountain of clothing and such and proceeded to watch the movie. Then a very weird thing happened, just when the horse and his jockey are about to win this race my eyes start to well up with tears. What's this, I'm thinking. This movie is not that sad and I don't remember ever crying when I watched it before. Then it happened like three other times too! I cried when he won, when he got hurt, when the horse got hurt and then when they won again at the end!
What is the deal?! So yeah, I'm definitely pregnant but who knew my emotions would be like this! I've heard of the expression, "crying at the drop of a hat" but had never experienced it before now. Whoa, strange stuff this pregnancy thing is. :)

Jake and I have begun a very exciting new journey. We are parents-to-be! We found out September 24th, the day after Jake's birthday! Jake actually thought I was pregnant before I did. We were sitting on the couch and I was feeling really hot all of a sudden, so we opened up the windows and let the breeze waft in and then I was chilly. So I was hot and then cold. He looked at me and rolled his eyes, "Are you going to be like this for the next 9 months?" I said, "No way, I am not pregnant." So the next morning he wakes me up around 6 a.m. and I roll out of bed thinking to myself that I am not pregnant so that I won't be disappointed when we find out we're not.
We take the test and sit there in the bathroom to watch it change. We see the first line and I look at Jake and say, "Sorry babe, we're nto pregnant." But then I look back and ever so faintly I can see a second line, the one that tells you you're pregnant. :) What?! Is that line really there or am I just wishing it was? Then I tell Jake, "I think we're pregnant."
So we get back in bed and I laugh at Jake because he's saying all sorts of really funny things about being pregnant and such. And then he makes up a game, we play rock, paper, scissors and whoever wins each trimester gets to choose the first, middle, and last name respectively. So we've been playing it and so far Jake is winning, 8-6. :) Today he chose the name Geoff. :)
Oh by the way, I think we're having a girl and Jake thinks we're having a boy. Honestly, I think we're guessing what each of us wants. :) And then Jake says he wants what Lori and Seth have so that they can be best friends. :)
I guess we'll see. We aren't finding out either. It'll be a surprise!
