(Finding out I was pregnant!  Now, that's quite the story.  It was about a week after Todd came to visit when I started to feel... weird.  It was time for my yearly check up anyways so I called the Doc and set up an appointment.  By the time my appointment came around I was a couple days late... which doesn't happen, but I wasn't too worried about it.  I'm not always great at counting it anyways.  So we did a physical and she asked me if I wanted a pregnancy test done with my blood work.  'Uh sure,' I said, not really caring.  Well... a couple hours later I was at work and I got a phone call from the Doc.  'I just wanted to let you know that we got the results back from your pregnancy test and it came back positive.'  I sat there for a minute confused.  'Wait.  Like positive as in... I'M PREGNANT!!??'  'Yes,' she replied.  I couldn't believe it.  I think I even went into shock a little.  I had to tell Todd immediately, but I was sad to have to do it over the phone.  So I called him with the big news and he too was pretty shocked and speechless.  I went home that night and took a pregnancy test just because I wanted to see it with my own eyes!  And sure enough... well, you see the picture. :)  February 2012)
