Christmas came a bit early for us at the Palm house … I found out on Dec. 15 that we are pregnant!
It was like any other Saturday. I had just wrapped up a crazy busy week at work and started my weekend at the gym. It was one of the best workouts I had in a while, so I decided to run a few errands before heading home. I got home, ate a leisurely lunch and went to shower. I had a suspicion and thought “what the heck,” I’ll just take a test and see.
A quick two-minutes later and I was sitting on the bathroom floor in shock, excitement, disbelief and a bit of panic all at the same time. Thinking maybe it was a fluke, I promptly went to the drugstore and purchased four more tests. All positive.
Confirmation that I wasn’t just seeing things, I went into full type-A planning mode thinking about what’s next. Eric was traveling into the next week and wasn’t going to be home, and I wasn’t sure if I could wait that long to tell him in person. So among tears of excitement and anxiousness, I called my mom asking for advice, haha! After swearing she wouldn’t tell anyone, even my dad and brother, I hung up and called Eric.
We decided to make a decision to tell key family members around Christmas and the rest of our family and friends around the 12 week mark.
I’m officially at 12 weeks, so here we are. It’s been so hard to keep Baby Palm a secret, and we are so excited to meet baby at the end of August! Stay tuned for more updates!
