First comes love, then comes marriage....

then comes a baby!!! Yep, you read that right. I am pregnant!!!!!


I am still shocked, but I am really excited. Mr. Healthy Diva is beyond excited. I actually wanted to keep this a secret for a bit longer, but by Friday everybody knew so we made it "facebook/instagram/twitter official" on Saturday. I wanted him to be in the picture, but he got a little camera shy on me. 

I honestly had no clue I was pregnant. I have been pretty tired the last couple of weeks. I am generally a morning person that gets up around 5 am, but the last couple of weeks it has been a huge effort to pull myself from bed by 6:30 am. I thought I was tired because of the extra running I was putting in for Spokane to Sandpoint. I mentioned to my mom on Thursday how tired I was feeling she immediately asked if I was pregnant. I said no because I thought there was no way that could be possible. Other than feeling tired, I felt great! I got to thinking after our phone conversation that I was also late, but never thought to take a test when I got home. Thursday also happened to be our 4 year wedding anniversary so I was in a rush to shower and get ready for our dinner date. 

Half way through dinner I really wondered IF I was pregnant. I decided to hold my pee for what seems like ages until we got home so I could take a test. When we got home I ran to the bathroom and took the test. It was +++ within seconds. I was shocked! I started to shake and then I started to cry because I was happy/shocked/elated and whatever random emotions you feel when you find out. I walked out into the hallway and yelled for Mr. Healthy Diva to come look. I held up the the test and he just stared at me. He had no idea what I was holding or what it meant at first. I said "Happy Anniversary, I am pregnant!" It then registered with him what I was holding and then he was elated. I waited another hour and took another test just to be sure. It was also +. All night I couldn't sleep and even went into work early so I could see if my primary care physician was working so I could make an appointment to get my pregnancy confirmed. I was able to get a lunch appointment which made for the longest 4 hours of my life! 

The appointment just confirmed that I really am pregnant with an anticipated due date at the beginning of April. I will know more when I meet with my OB physician on 9/10. April is also a special month for us because it was the month we met in college and the month we got engaged. 

So if you were wondering the little pea inside of me has already ran 1 half marathon, 1 Ragnar Relay, 1 triathlon and 1 ultra relay. Looks like my little pea is going to be a runner!

    1. Thank you Tamara! It was definitely an anniversary to remember. The look on my husband's face was priceless. He totally thought I was playing a joke on him. He was so excited he was telling everyone instead of keeping it a secret. Men, what can you do with them?

  13. OMG!!!!!! WOW, so exciting (and yes, scary at first, especially if it is a bit unexpected). If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Also, I'd love to see your half plan if you don't mind sharing. I can message you my personal email. I am going to post what I have put together thus far today or tomorrow, but, love having other inspiration!

    1. Trust me, if I have questions I will ask!!! I have already been googling stuff. My neighbor that I am good friends with is also pregnant so she has some books she is going to share with me.

      I saw your email earlier and will respond when I get a chance...probably tomorrow. I don't have a plan on computer, it's handwritten.

    April is a great month to have a baby--my son was born April 1st. When my husband called my mom to tell her, at first she didn't believe him thinking it was an April Fools joke! :)

    1. I know a lot of people born in April so it must be a good month. :-)

      That is funny your son was born on 4/1. He has a birthday that nobody can forget!

    1. Thank you Amanda! We are both really excited about the news. I think the shock has worn off for the most part, but it still seems weird to think I am pregnant. My poor husband now has a really long "to do" list at our house. It isn't baby friendly at all right now. Big changes are in store!

    1. Thank you Katie! I always thought I would know the minute I was pregnant. I am still in shock I went so long without knowing. I was thinking I was just tired from the ultra...I even thought I had mono from stress, etc. Who knew! Thanks to my mom for even asking if I was pregnant in the first place. It was the LAST thing on my mind!

    1. Thank you Presley! I doubt I will still be faster than you at 9 months though. I have already slowed down a lot, but that's okay. Baby Bean is much more important then running for time right now.
