The oven’s hot, and the bun is baking!

On Sunday, December 7, Sarah went to Chicago for some boring conference related to things that she does of which I know and understand very little.  She called me the following Tuesday while I was at work.  She usually only calls me in the evenings, unless she’s bored.

For that reason, I was a little annoyed.  Maybe more than a little, but regardless, annoyed is a good way of putting it.  It turns out the reason she couldn’t wait until that evening was that she took a pregnancy test.  The test was apparently a strong positive.  At least, that’s what she said.

I was REALLY doubtful about the result.  I told her to give it a week, take another test, and then she should take another test.  She humored me and just agreed to it.

I thought about it for a while after that, into the next evening when I was supposed to pick her up from the airport.  I decided that she SHOULD in fact go to the doctor to get it checked out.  I mean, better safe than sorry.  Worst thing they’re going to tell her is that I’m right.  Well, worst thing for her anyway ::evil grin::

We talked about it while she threw around terms like “99.9% accurate” and something about how I never listen to her or something like that.  I don’t know, I wasn’t really paying attention.

Over the past week though, she’s been pointing out some of the signs (symptoms?) of pregnancy.  Everything does seem to point to being pregnant.  There are a couple that I’m not sure are actually signs though: selfish and insensitive.  I guess I can live with those for a while since she IS going to have my baby.

Am I happy about this?  Hell yes!  I’m ecstatic!  I’m a calm ecstatic, but still ecstatic.

I really hope that we have twins.  Neither one of us has twins in our family, so it’s pretty unlikely, but still: come on twins!

If you’re family, and you’re reading this, you might not have realized that we decided to start the show before the new year.  Don’t feel bad.  it was my idea.  Although, we didn’t really think it would happen this quickly.

There’s still risk this early in the pregnancy, so we’re still keeping this to ourselves for a little while.  We’re going to tell our families at Christmas.  I’m going to tell my friends Courtney and Chris around the same time.  I tell them everything.  We’ll probably wait until around the 12th week to tell the rest of our friends.  I’m sure that we’ll have some moments of weakness where we’ll tell a select few during that time.

Sarah and I are going to chronicle our adventures (both good and bad) over the next 9 (8 now?) months.  Once the baby’s born, this site will remain, but will become a site for the baby.  It’ll be renamed for the kid, just like my own site: (aaron.stemen.me).

By the time that you read this though, there will probably be a few entries, and you can read all about our emotions and reactions that we couldn’t tell you about earlier.
