I can still remember the moment I first found out I was pregnant with my first son. It was about 5:30 in the morning on a work day, and I had just woken up from a dream in which I discovered I was expecting a baby. It was such a real dream that when I woke up, I decided to take a pregnancy test and to my shock, it was positive.
I could barely contain my excitement and I ran in and woke up my husband out of a deep sleep to share the news! Hardly able to believe what I was seeing, I ran out to the nearest 24-hour drug store to buy another pack of tests. 😉 Crazy, I know, but it was my first and I just couldn’t believe it! In fact, I think I took a pregnancy test every few days until our first ultrasound at 6 weeks!
While the middle child pregnancy was a little anti-climactic the third baby was just as surprising as the first, but for a different reason. We were not planning on having a third (at least at that time!). I remember staring in complete disbelief at the test that was showing me that I would be a mother for the third time! But you know what, William is easily the best surprise we could have every received–hands down! 🙂
Everyone has their own unique story, and Clearblue (the tests we used!) put together a beautiful video montage of pregnancy announcements. I hope all of the mothers and mothers-to-be have a wonderful Mother’s Day this weekend, and I would love to hear how you announced your pregnancy! We shared our news with family first and then made announcement on social media with an ultrasound pic. I have heard some pretty creative ideas though!
How did you share the news of your baby(babies)?
