couple finding out they're pregnant

I was so surprised when we got pregnant with our daughter. The doctors didn’t think we could have a baby on our own (without infertility methods) so we had lost a bit of hope.

When I took a pregnancy test and it was positive, telling the news to my husband was interesting. Our initial reactions were both shocked and total disbelief.

Me: Umm Nick. I don’t think these things give false positives (showing him the positive pregnancy test).

Nick: What?? Where did you get that test?

Me: The Dollar Tree

Nick: No, we’re going to buy a more expensive test.

Off to the store we went to buy the most expensive pack of home pregnancy tests he could find. Apparently to him expensive also meant accurate.

We got another positive test and we were so shocked and excited!

All that to say that if we are able to have a second baby, I want to surprise him with the exciting news in a much more fun and planned-out way.
