I found out I’m pregnant right before Easter. I had suspected for a couple of weeks and mentioned it to Derek but I don’t think he took me too seriously. I took a test early one morning before school and then I had to wait FOREVER until he came home from school that night at 8:30 to tell him. I just left a card on his plate at dinner that said Congratulations Daddy!
He didn’t suspect anything even when I started snapping pictures of him! It was fun to see his surprised reaction. He’ll be such a good dad.
We waited until Mother’s Day to tell our families. Those were the longest 6 weeks ever! I almost blurted it out so many times but I’m glad I kept quiet. Derek and I each made a card for our moms that said Happy Mother’s Day, Grandma! Love Derek, BriAnn and Baby Christensen (due Dec 8th). We even got to tell Uncle Lee the news during his phone call home from the mission. Ours will be the second grandchild on both sides.
The only ultrasound we had scheduled was the routine one at 20 weeks. That’s when we were expecting to find out the gender. Since our little guy likes to hide from the heartbeat monitor, during our 16 week appointment this past Friday the doctor did a little ultrasound and we were able to see that it’s a little boy. That was so fun!
