What to Expect When...

So I never had my period last month, but I took a pregnancy test the Sunday I should have started and it was negative. So I didn't worry about it any more. But I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and I have an appointment with my Rheumatologist today, so just to be on the safe side I took another home test.

As I sat and watched, I realized it was forming a line in the first box. The first box should be empty. 2 boxes and 2 lines. Oh, my gosh. I'm pregnant again. I started laughing. Today's Wendell's day off so he was taking Anson to school. When he got home, I called him in the bedroom. "Come here," I said. "Close the door." "What?" he kept asking. I pulled him into the master bath and as I reached for the test I told him.

"Wendell, I'm pregnant."

2 lines. He couldn't pretend he didn't know what that means. As he said later, we've been on this pony ride before. "OK, " he said. "Can we be done now?"

"Yes," I giggled. "We can be done now."

Then I slapped him on his bicep and said, "Be happy! We're going to have another baby."

As my 31st birthday approaches, I was thinking how I needed to update my profile. My oldest will be 8 soon and my birthday is just around the corner after that. But I have a much bigger update. By the end of the year I'll be the mother to 5 kids 8 and under.
