Discovering we were pregnant.

Tuesday night, February 4, 2003, CDF commented that she was late on her period… more so that usual. For some reason or other, I had been paying attention as well but hadn’t wanted to say anything. What really got me suspicious was when she wanted Ice Cream a couple nights before, just out of the blue, and she normally refused my offer of ice cream for dessert.

So that night we went to WalMart, dodged a few fellows who were trying to buy condoms, and got a test. The next morning before I left for work, she took said test…

This wasn’t the first test we’d taken, but the first time she called me back to see. Neither of us were sure what to do or say next. As far as we knew, we were pregnant!

Rambling Thoughts


I’m going to try to start a diary on my wife’s pregnancy and the birth of our first child. Actually it could be the process of becoming a father. The thing is, I’m not really sure how to classify this process, and so I thought I’d write out my feelings.

Hopefully I can be consistant with this. I’ve never really done anything with a diary before, for lack of persistance if anything. Maybe the fact it’s on a computer will help, especially since that makes it much easier to ramble now that my hand won’t cramp from gripping a pen.

So to wrap this first entry up, I think I’ll spend a little while getting the interface to look right and maybe add a few more entries (see I’m rambling already).
