Cool New T-Shirts

So Ant and I decided to buy some cool new t-shirts a few months ago. Here is a picture of us wearing them:
Did you look at them closely? .... We are going to have a baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We seriously can't be more excited! I am almost 13 weeks along and I am due February 27, 2010, just two days after my birthday :)

Here is the story of how we found out (Written June 23, 2010):

I missed work yesterday because of a really bad migraine, so yesterday I stayed in bed all day recovering. Today I was feeling better and ready to go back to work. In the back of my head I realized that today was the day that I was supposed to start my period. I took my temperature in the morning and it was still high, and I hadn’t felt any kind of cramping or PMS symptoms. Once I fully realized this, I knew that I wouldn’t be able to get any peace of mind until I took a pregnancy test. Of course, I was sure that it was going to be negative since I’ve taken about a million of them and they always turn up negative, I mean that is just what they do for me! I stopped by the store for a few tests and took it in the bathroom at work. As I watched the test start to work, I noticed that the first line showed up right away. “Wait a minute..” I thought. I’ve taken enough of these to know that the control line is usually at the end of the test so that you know that it worked correctly. Sure enough, a few seconds later, another line appeared. TWO LINES!!!!! I couldn’t believe it!! I was in shock, and then crying, and then I didn’t know how in the world I was going to get through the day without being able to tell anyone.

Finally I decided to just go home really quick, pretend that I had forgotten something, and then show Anthony the pregnancy test. I entertained the idea of doing something cute to surprise him, but we have been trying for so long that I just couldn’t keep it from him. When I finally got home, I said hi to him and told him I forgot something. Then I slipped the test out of my purse and told him that this is what I forgot to show him. He was so happy!! He couldn’t stop saying, “Na uh!!!” and squeezing me so tight that I needed to ask him for air. He still wanted to see “the magic” for himself, so I took the second test in the pack so that he could watch the positive result show up. It came up right away, and he got even more excited all over again. Now it was time to go back to work and try to pretend that I wasn’t bursting!

SO CUTE! I love that you shared the story of how you found out. It was SO much fun to get to see everyone's reactions in Mass when Anthony told them all. Did he tell you that when he told the Torones, the girls hugged him and the men shook his hand? It was so dang cute!
