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!
