Can you keep a secret?

21 Oct

I broke my own rule yesterday morning. I got up, peed on a stick, and this is what I got. Did the same thing this morning (two lines again!) and then had my blood drawn at the clinic. Waited an agonizing six hours for them to call. But by 2:30 pm, it was officially confirmed.

I’m pregnant.

If you know me in real life, please keep this as a secret for me. I am planning to keep this close to the chest for a few weeks. But thank you for following along and sending good energy our way. My wife and I are kinda stunned but so grateful and excited.

So far, my biggest symptoms have been intermittent mild cramps, general exhaustion and a propensity to wake up at 4am to go pee. Oh yeah, and the lack of a period. I’ve also been a little bit indigested. And coffee tastes like gasoline.

While I do have grand plans to have an active pregnancy, I think I’m going to put my feet up this weekend, take lots of naps, squeeze my sweet wife and start to dream a little.

Love to all of you.
