How we found out about baby

Me at 4 weeks
Here's the story behind how we found out we were expecting. We weren't planning on telling everyone so soon, but with a big family and finding out right before the holidays it was too hard to keep it a secret. LOL!I'm due on or around August 25 so I'm about 2 months. Were not going to find out the gender and were also not going to share our names with anyone, we want everything to be a big surprise. We do have full names picked out for a boy or a girl, so we've already made up our minds. I can say that both names have religious meanings (I hate trendy, popular names). Chris and I are really excited and so are my parents because its their first grandchild. When I found out I was shocked! I couldn't stop shaking for about 20 minutes! I was home alone and I wanted to call my husband Chris, but he was at work and forgot his cell phone. I tried to call my Mom but the line was busy, so I was home alone for like 3 hours with the news. I thought I was going to go crazy if I didn't tell someone! LOL! Chris wasn't as shocked as I was when I told him (rather showed him the test), but he was really happy. I told my parents by signing a Christmas "Love Chris, Marjorie and Baby." When my Mom read it she was like "what... is it true?" and then she started crying, she was major excited and so were my brothers and sisters! One of my little brothers asked if I was going to tell Chris! LOL! Little kids are so funny! I've been recording everything in a really cool book I got two weeks ago. Its a pregnancy journal that I can put pics in and keep memories with, like my first doctor's appointment and etc. I thought it was so cute so I wanted to share.

Here's the inside...

Finally, here's the proof! LOL
