I wanted to sound a bit witty.



I wanted to sound a little sly and keep you guessing.



I wanted to rehash to you how thankful I am this time of year, and especially now.



I wanted this post to pique your attention from the get-go.



Instead, I'm too dang tired. And I've got a full, bloated belly after lunch.



And I'm still pleasantly in shock.



So, here it is, the moment Big D and I have been waiting for, with baited breath....





(and yes, I took multiple MULTIPLE tests since last Thursday!)


I am pregnant!!

Holy shit.


And I can't freakin' stop smiling.


(I promise not to leave you all hangin' like this. The full story will come tomorrow! Right now, I gotta go pinch myself a few more hundred times.)

Oh April!! I am happy dancing for you!

Oh & I saw your comment about drinking so much wine, convinced you were not pregnant? You *knew* that was how it would work, right?! ;-)

Sarah said...

OMG! April!! I am so friggin happy for you!!!

The Captain's Wife said...

April- If you go back to my pregnancy announcement post, you will recall that the night before I tested positive (the one month we did not try) I drank literally like a 24 pack of New Castle, jello shots, and other fun stuff....I also had been having a very stressful time at work and was drinking wine daily.

Maybe that is the trick to getting KU'ed! Drink heavily and it makes the egss easier to penetrate?

Heidi Renée said...

Amy said...

I am sending you all of my non-sick pregnancy vibes. Of course, chances are you are only carrying one, as opposed to my three, so I will also do my best to muster empathy for you wen you complain about the aches, while I am up here with 21 weeks to go but looking like I have half of it!

Tabitha said...

Morgan said...

HOLY SHIT is right!! CONGRATS girl! I couldn't think of anyone who deserves it more! Enjoy your 9 months, it's an amazing journey and it flies by! Congrats again...holy moly!! I had to read it twice!

Morgan said...

OMG I just realized you knew a few days ago...you dirty dog you! I wouldn't have been able to hold out that long on telling everyone...I can't wait to hear what Big D's reaction was!

Stephanie said...

OMG!!! April I am SO happy for you. You have NO idea! Congrats to you and Big D! I cannot wait to hear the whole story. I knew your time would come. Did you use that website I told you about? Charting?

Congrats girl! Get some rest! :) When is the EDD?

Kat said...

Don't worry about the wine. I accidentally drank without knowing I was pregnant with EVERY ONE of my boys. With Tommy the hubby and I were down in Mexico drinking TONS of tequilla and the day after we came back I took a preggo test and found out I was pregnant. I was SO SCARED. My doc told me that it was so early that I shouldn't worry about it. Still freaked me out though. ;)

Flea said...

And don't be freakin' about the alcohol and caffeine. Water under the bridge. The occasional glass of wine is no big deal (from here on out), and I drank a cuppa joe a day with each of my kids. I'm told it decreases the birth weight. My smallest was 9 lbs. 3 oz. Shoulda had three cups a day. But don't YOU do that!

Jenn said...

Congratulations!!! That is SO wonderful! Yay!!

(I drank so much- like the most ever- in the 2 weeks before I found out I was pregnant! It must be good luck because so many people say the same thing! So don't even think about it again! You are fine!)

Krystyn said...

yay!!! i'm so happy for you guys!

i can't wait to follow the journey with you.

Mommychicky said...

Took every one in the box, didn't you? Have you gotten yourself one of the digital ones? Even more gratifying to see the word "pregnant"... Congratulations, I am so happy for you and D!

krissy said...

OMG!!!! I knew it. I just knew you were prego when you said "Now..go read some good news at my blog!"

I'm not even the one prego and I could scream in excitement. This news is spectacular. I am beyond thrilled. I am......pathetic. But I am still happy as all hell.

I cannot stop smiling.

Jaina said...

Oh my gosh April, CONGRATS!!! This is SOOOOO exciting, I know you have really been wanting this :) And it's just in time for the holidays :) How amazing. Oh congrats!

Trannyhead said...

How wonderful for you and Big D! Congratulations - an early Christmas present!

Stephanie said...

Congratulations! I will be hoping for a stress-free, no-morning-sickness pregnancy for you!

Heather said...

CONGRATS!

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

April said...

Ha ha, DPO is "days past ovulation".

RCRambling said...

How did I miss all this?!?!?!?!?

Congratulations!
