My Milestones & Events

On December 25, 2014 at 5 weeks 4 days pregnant
Announced Pregnancy to Family
I shared the news with my brothers, mother, step-father, and in-laws. No extended family yet. Surprisingly, my step-father has been very excited about the news. My mother was inconsolably happy about the news, and my brothers were expectedly apathetic (though they pretended to be happy, like good boys). I think one of my brothers was a little hurt by the news as he has wanted to have a baby, but his wife, already having 2 from a previous marriage, is a little less enthusiastic.

First Positive Pregnancy Test
I was feeling uncomfortable and figured, "Why not?" It was late evening, I knew my urine would be dilute and the test would most likely come back negative since I was still 4 days away from my period but holy crap on a stick, the test was positive and the one the following morning was a very strong positive, causing me to rethink my ability to anticipate when my periods are due or when ovulation occurs.

Told Husband/Partner
I told my husband, who sat still in shock for 8 entire minutes. This was our first month of attempting to conceive, so the news was particularly unexpected. He sat very still to the point that I wasn't sure if he had heard me. I offered to take the cap off of the used pregnancy test so that he could verify that there was, in fact, urine on the stick. If he had demanded further proof, I knew I wouldn't be able to prove that it was my urine, but I figured I would instead offer to perform a new test in front of him should he protest. He did not. To date, his internal celebration is at a fever-pitch, as evidenced by the fact that he is incapable of hearing anything that anyone says to him.
