Who Needs a Physical Test...

...when you have God giving you the answers.

Well I teased a little over here in a comment yesterday, and actually one myself my first ever giveaway. So here is the story.

Hubby and I decided that we wanted to start trying for a third baby. I thought that it would be okay to get pregnant in the fall so I could go on roller coaster rides at Hershey Park this summer and get in the hot tub at the beach in September. You know things I can't enjoy if I'm pregnant.

Well this past week, I was supposed to get a visit from my aunt Flo (you know what I mean). And she somewhat surprised us by not showing up. Its a good thing though because I was feeling really tired and irritated all weekend. I can't imagine having to entertain the way I was feeling. I know...what does this have to do with being pregnant.

So Hubby and I were pretty certain that there was something more going on. Sunday, Hubby decides to pray the following prayer: "Lord, if Thrills is pregnant, I need a raise." You know we can't fit 3 car seats in the back of our car. So we need to be able to buy a van - uuuggghhhh! After being promised a raise a year and a half ago, he received that raise on Monday!!!

We decided maybe I should go buy a test to find out "for sure" - like we didn't already know. Sure enough, there were TWO lines!!!

So my accountant husband and I will be welcoming a new baby into our home next....APRIL 16thish!!!!!!!!!!! How's that for planning? Hubby says if it's a boy his name is Debit, if it's a girl her name is Credit.

Congrats, congrats, congrats! So happy for you all - the baby, the raise, the van :) Don't worry about being a minivan mom - you can still ROCK THE HOUSE :) I do all the time. Just ask my kids. Well, don't ask Shaggy or Dr. D. They'll just roll their eyes at you. But LadyBug and BBE think I rock, still :) :)

Good luck with the mini-van. (I opted for a Suburban...)

So cool! Hmm, I guess you did have a "glow" when I saw you this morning. May you get lots of rest these early weeks when you need it, and have a smooth pregnancy all the way. I love my minivan, and I don't care a bit if it's not cool enough for others.

The Aunt Flo threw me for a moment....duh.

Yippee!! Welcome to the world of being forever outnumbered....it's pretty amazing!

CONGRATS! TCC told me the awesome news yesterday! I still have to get that one red shirt back to you! Do you need any other types of clothes - let me/TCC know!

I really like the minivan so far...yes, I have only had it for about 12 hours, but it is great! I cannot wait to drive it! I can let you know where we got ours from - you may want to go that route too.

TCC said...

Congrats. From your story I would say that Aunt Flo has everything to do with whether you are pregnant or not. :)

I am so happy for you!

Say Anything said...

What wonderful news!! I've been driving a van now for five and a half years now and I'll never quite get over it. But nevertheless, it fits three carseats! Congrats!

Jim (Like I was Saying's Hubby) said...

This is awesome! And I especially can appreciate the names selection by Hubby. LOL.

Of course, we have a mini-van that according to Jr. is a "fast car"! He asks me all the time "fast car, Daddy?" I think it is fast and cool too. Especially, the cool cargo ;>) They are the best...
