Dear Crissy

Pink lines, blue lines, and a digital yes

Because clearly, when you take a home pregnancy test and it comes up positive, the next step is to immediately jump in the car, drive to the nearest drugstore, and waste another $40 on more tests.

Add a blood test to the list, because I just received a call from my doctor with the results of that, too. Definitely pregnant!

Dear Crissy Pregnancy

While we planned to try for another kiddo sometime within the next year or two, this was certainly a surprise. A happy, OMG, surprise! If I had even a lick of good sense, I probably would have held off on telling THE WHOLE WORLD that I am pregnant for at least a few more weeks, but seriously? I can’t keep a secret.

I am only 4 weeks, and by my calculations, will be having a Santa baby, right around Christmastime!

I will obviously have a lot more to say as time goes by, but right now, I’m just letting it all sink in. OMG… I’m having another baby!

  10. Congrats! My little surprise Santa baby is 16 months old today (12/20/09). He was due Christmas day but came a little early- which turned out great because we were home on Christmas morning. The only down side I have seen with a winter baby is that you feel like such a shut-in keeping them inside all the time to beat the Ohio cold (we’re in NE Ohio)- but it is great to have a little mover come warm weather so you can really get out and enjoy everything. Many blessings for a wonderful pregnancy!

  11. CONGRATS!!!!

  12. Congratulations Crissy! What a beautiful surprise. Enjoy your pregnancy. :)

  90. congrats, crissy! i don’t blame you for taking multiple tests.:o) i knew i was pregnant all three times before taking tests. with my last one, i was supposed to get a refill on my bc pills, but i ‘felt’ i was pregnant, so i held off. i was only late by a few days, not even quite a week, when i took the 1st test: negative. i still ‘felt’ pregnant, and i still didn’t get a refill. took my 2nd test a day or two after: positive…she’s now 12 lol but i was like you, i couldn’t wait to tell people with my last two (i was married & older then), but with my 1st one i was 19 almost 20, so not as excited to share the news w anyone especially my parents :o/ lol

  91. That was my FIRST thought on the caffeine withdrawal post from yesterday, lol! And yes, I hear ya on purchasing $40 of expensive digi’s to see more PREGNANT or FRER’s to see those lovely lines screaming BFP!

  97. Congratulations! Let me tell you, life with two certainly changes a lot! However, my two are only 21 months apart, so a lot of the toddler years were rather overlapped/condensed. You’ll have the joy, heh, of juggling those separate stages of childhood.

    Have you told Evan yet? What do you think his reaction will be?

  138. I have had 2 Christmas babies, Dec 15 2008 and Jan 3 2011. It is definitely more stressful around that time, with not wanting to have a new born at get togethers with all those germs and not wanting to be in the hospital and miss Christmas with your other little ones. BUT it’s only one year out of forever :) Congrats!!! I love babies and giving birth, I know I’m weird lol. That’s why I’m going to school to be a labor and delivery nurse.

  139. Congratulations, Crissy! What a lovely surprise for you and your family!
