Initial Reactions

How I found Out..

It was on May 16 2012 when we discovered I was officially pregnant. At the beginning of May I knew something was off when I was experiencing pregnancy symptoms such as: sensitivity to smells especially meat produce, abdominal pains, and of course tender breasts. Has anyone ever heard of the saying " trusts yourself, you know more than you think you do"? Well, on May 16th I followed my intuition and went out and purchased 3 pregnancy tests just to be on the safe side :) . When I saw the first result I was absolutely blinded by the two lines indicating POSITIVE! The two words that I consistently uttered over and over were "NOOOOOOOOO WAYYYYYYY!!!"  I took the second test and then finally the third. All were positive. As a curled up in the bathroom just starring at the two lines, I just knew that I was officially bringing a mini Linda or Kalvin into this world...

How did you tell Kalvin?

Prior to telling Kalvin the good news I invited my bestfriend out to eat and asked for her opinions on ways I should break the news to Kalvin. After sharing ideas over lunch, we finally decided we might as well do it with a bang and tell him in a memorable way. I walked over to Walmart picked up a a baby photo album. Then I walked to old navy and purchased one of the cutest baby onezie saying "I love Daddy" . Finally I walked to Halmark and purchased a card. Telling Kalvin the pregnancy news was hard but extremely comical. I remember giving him the card after he returned from work. As he opened the envelope and saw the itty bitty baby drawings on the card he quickly replied with "babe what is this?" The card read" You're going to fall in love again with someones tender charms! You're going to be demolished by a pair of little arms! Yes, you're going to fall in love again. The signs are very clear! Get ready for a brand-new crush...As soon as baby's here" After reading the card Kalvin bursted out laughing and kept uttering " is this FOR REAL? are you serious?". I am almost sure all sorts of emotions were running through his mind. After settling down we had a intimate conversation discussing what will happen and from then on it was history... 

Love, Peace and Happiness
