Starbucks and the Stick

Yep, it's officially unofficial - I am pregnant!!!!!!
Here's the story: My period was five days late, so we thought something was up. I had taken a pregnancy test on Saturday when I didn't start, but it was negative; must have been too early. Anyway, we couldn't get another test until today, Wednesday, because we were flat broke - we had $4 in the bank - and today was payday. I had said I would buy the test today and take it Thursday morning. Roy told me he would lay money to bet I can't wait until then ... and he was right! This morning on my way to work, I went to Walmart and bought a test. Then I went next door to Starbucks and ordered a skinny latte, and went into the bathroom and peed on the stick! I layed it down flat like the directions said, washed my hands, and already when I had come back to it, the two lines had appeared! It had only been one minute! I wrapped it in a paper towel, stuck it in my purse, and walked out like nothing happened. I got in the car and sent a text message to Roy (he was in his German class at Baylor), and he sent me one back saying it's not fair to send messages like that while he's in class and can't "go to the crapper"!!!! Too funny! He told me later he was actually texting me from the bathroom while he was on the pot! (okay, is that TMI?) I called my parents and sister after that, and then had to get to work. I told everyone at school and then left early and called friends and family. So fun! I made my doctor's appointment; it is for Aug. 13. I suppose then it will be official. I'll be sure and post ultrasound pics.

When I got home, I had these beautiful flowers waiting for me - from my big sister!!!! Thanks, Kim. It was such a sweet surprise, and they smell soooo good!

According to my calculations, I should have the baby beginning to mid April, which is cool cause my birthday is April 11, my mom's is the 27th, and Roy's gma's is the end of April, too. I will take off school for the 6weeks, and by mid-May, when I have to go back, Roy will be finished Baylor for the semester, and he can stay home with the baby. Then we'll have all summer, and won't have to put the baby in daycare until August when it's four months old. I am feeling really good about all that.
Congratulations to me!!!!
