I will not be publishing these posts until we have made it public, but we're pregnant! On July 16, I took a pregnancy test, 3 days early, and it was negative. I was disappointed but I knew there was still a chance. By the way, each time I take a test, I don't tell Glen for fear that he will think I am being obsessive. Anyway, I was feeling "different" for a week before I took the first test. Since it was my last test, I decided to wait a few days before going out and buying another test. I didn't really start and I normally have debilitating cramps on the first day which didn't come. I finally decided to but more tests on Wednesday night. I went to Wal-Mart (I normally buy them at Smith's but I used the excuse of getting Glen a B-Day card to go out by myself.) I bought a pack of 3 tests. That night, I started what I thought was my period and I was crushed. The next morning I decided to test again just in case. I get up early to go running every morning and Glen usually sleeps the whole time. Anyway, I take the test and it's negative. I think to myself, I should check the box just in case since this is a different brand. But no, I'm just being silly. However, I was hiding the tests in my sock drawer so Glen wouldn't see them. When I went to get socks, I looked at the box and lo and behold, what I thought was negative was actually positive. I was hyperventilating a little and doing my best to not wake up Glen. I was so excited because Glen's birthday was a week and a half later and I wanted it to be one of his presents. So, I didn't tell him right away. I called the doctor's office and made an appointment for the next Thursday, so a week from when I got the positive. The next day I went back to Wal-Mart and bought some onesies and wrapped them in the same paper as the rest of Glen's presents. But I couldn't wait any longer. Friday night, July 24th, before our date, I handed it to him and said, "Open this now, please." He really didn't want to but I made him. He was in shock! It was awesome. He just kept saying, "No, no." It was funny because not two hours earlier Candice asked if I was pregnant because her dad overheard me talking about it but actually I was talking about someone else. So I had to lie to Candice because I hadn't told Glen yet and we hadn't decided to tell anyone yet.
The next day,
