Expanding the Stewarts

John and I got a nice surprise last Thursday.
My friend Jessica Singleton and I went to dinner at Applebees to enjoy their 99cent margarita night.  I had one (which I only had about 1/2 of) and THEN they told us that it was no longer a promotion they were offering.  So we sat there sipping water and Coke instead and caught each other up on what had been going on in life and with the girls since the last time we were together.

My cycles have been screwed up since Christmas, and I've been late for the past three or four months, so when I was late again this month, I didn't think much of it.  I took a test on Tuesday when I was 4 days late and it came up negative, so I figured I was just screwed up again.

Jessica brought up the fact that she'd had the same problem (not "feeling" pregnant) with her little girl and I should test again.  We spent the rest of the evening hanging out and running around town.

When I got home, I decided to go ahead and take another test.  After all, what could it hurt?  I did the test and laid it down, and nothing showed up at first, so I figured it was going to be negative again, but I laid it on the wrapper on the counter to let it set its 5 minutes.  I walked back in, texting on my phone, not really thinking much about it, and sure enough....there was a second line.  I picked it up and ran to the other bathroom where John was getting ready to take a shower, and I poked it through the door.

We're both completely in shock.  I'm not taking any preventative measures or anything, but we haven't really been trying.  It took us a little over three years to get pregnant with Charlee, so we figured it would be awhile before we had another one.  We're ecstatic of course....and definitely can't wait to meet this little Peanut too!!

According to those online due date calculators, I'm due about February 26, 2011.  Our first OB appointment is August the 6th!!  They're having me wait long enough so we can hear the heartbeat, and then they should schedule my first ultrasound!!!
