So remember on September 15th when I posted and was all like, Hey, I'm back! Then later I was like, I am busy applying for jobs and thinking of adding a baby to the mix but I'm not pregnant. Well... the next day I took a pregnancy test and to my complete shock it was positive! I was about to throw the test away and hop in the shower when a faint second line showed up! I freaked out and ran to the basement to yell for Joel to come here and look at something. I needed confirmation that a second line had appeared. He of course was all calm and not shocked that we were pregnant. I however couldn't stop shaking and freaking out. The next time we are pregnant I will try to play it cool and try to surprise him in some way.
Seriously, look at how faint that second line is. Plus I expected it to be right next to the first line. I am glad I didn't throw the test away before seeing it!
Suddenly becoming a mom changed my plans about working a bit. It was time to make some money before I stay home with the baby. About two hours after I found out I was pregnant I accepted a job at Earle Brown Elementary in Brooklyn Center. I worked there three years ago and it is fun to be back. One major perk of the job is that I am working with my friend Shawn again.
Since my last post I have eaten A LOT of saltine crackers. Tomorrow I enter my 12th week of pregnancy. I am hoping that as I enter the 2nd trimester by stomach will calm down. I am constantly amazed at how such a little creature can have such major impact on my body!
