I had a hunch, bought the test. I didn't tell Brian I was buying one as I ran into the store to pick up something else while he waited in the car with Henry. I took it as soon as we got home while they played in the living room, and I brought it out to him as the line started to get darker. "Do you think this is positive?" I asked him. I think he was pretty shocked since this is the first he had heard of my even having this hunch. We watched together as the line got darker and darker. Pregnant!
This time around has been very different. About five minutes after realizing I had a little bean in me, I felt so incredibly guilty for the fact that Henry was going to have to share our love with another child. But that quickly faded as I realized that he is going to have the chance to be a great big brother, and will have a play mate so close in age. (He will be 18 months when the new little arrives.)
We waited a while to tell anyone, although I kept spilling the beans to a couple people (with good reasons, like switching doctor advice, a dental assistant who happen to be a friend etc.) and we told our families a month later. Plus we've been so busy with this guy I haven't really had time to dwell on it for long.
