I Passed!

I have only failed one test my entire life and not only did I fail it, but I failed it 24 times over the past two years! Well, I studied hard my friends. Did some extra-credit. Paid my dues and finally on April 27th, 2009, at 9:10pm, I passed!!!

Now I know I'm going against the status quo by announcing this so early, but I've been trying for so long, that people ask me almost daily if I'm pregnant yet. To avoid lying to my friends and family for the next three months, I'm coming clean from the start. Thank you so much for all your prayers and please don't stop now. I'm currently growing vital organs inside me and I really don't want to mess that up, so pray, pray, pray away. I will be.

After I secretly took the pregnancy test and double checked the results, nay, quadruple checked the results, I went into the front room and tried to act casual. Bear asked me why I was bouncing around. I'm not normally very bouncy. I asked him if he had any plans for January and he looked at me funny. I said, Do you want to have a baby?" Again, he looked at me funny and I said, "Well, I hope your not busy, because I'm having a baby in January." Then he asked, "Really?" I showed him the test and after much studying of the results, I got a huge hug and a kiss.
*
After so many negative results, I think we were both a little slow to accept it. Now we both can't figure out what to do with ourselves. If this had happened when we first started trying, I would have ran out and bought every baby book in existence and diligently started preparing. Well, I already read all the baby books two years ago and now I am at a loss. I guess it's normal life for now and sleeping in while I still can.

By the way, at the end of my O.C.D. post, I mentioned that the Cullens were a welcome distraction from obsessing over having a baby. I even said that everyone kept telling me all I had to do to have a baby was stop thinking about it, so I was going to focus all my energy on getting into the next Twilight movie. Well, I am now going to be 9 months pregnant when they start filming Eclipse. I'm not sad, because the part I really want is in Breaking Dawn anyway and to show my appreciation to the Cullens for their magical powers of distraction, I will be naming my babies, yes, I said babies, because I am an overachiever...


Edward Emmet Bear

&

Bella Rosalie Bear


Edward and Bella for obvious reasons. Emmet, because they always describe him as a bear and my last name happens to be Bear and Rosalie, because she was as obsessed about having a baby as I was. You think I'm joking, but part of you hopes I'm serious, because the names are so darn cute. I guess we'll have to wait and see...

Chrislynn said...

Congratulations Lil! I know what it is like to fail that test and then how crazy it is when you actually pass. I love the names, btw, hooray for Twilight!

Melissa and Nate said...

Congratulations! We couldn't be happier for you guys!!

Candice said...

HOORAY, HOORAY, HOORAY, HOORAY, HOORAY! I am so happy! That was the best news today (and the next and the next).

I have to admit, that usually I get a little jealous when people announce the passing of this particular test, but not with you. I am bursting with happiness.

I remember the first (and only) time that I passed one of those tests. I was in denial for the next month (while throwing up three times a day). I was so worried that I would lose it.

But, it was the best 9 months of my life, and Sarah is perfect.

Oh, congratulations.

Judy Andreason said...

Congratulations. I am so happy for you.

IrisLillie said...

YAY!!!!
I take it you are NOT coming home for Christmas... The airlines get really pissy when you travel after 6 months.... (Not that I would know)
If you name a son Edward.. Your Uncle Ed (as well as a zillion other Edward Lillie's, would know you were REALLY just proud of this side of the family)

Jensens said...

I am so HAPPY for you!!! That is the best news ever! I also had a hard time getting pregnant, so I know what you're going through. Take it easy and take care of yourself (and that little grain of rice beating inside of you)!!!!

Scott and Stacia said...

I am so happy for you guys! I am crying...and i am not kidding! CONGRATS!! Oh I can't wait to tell Scott at his lunch break. You guys will be in our prayers! I hope it is a great pregnancy!

Kizzie said...

Lil that is so awesome! Congratulations!!
And you're right. Sleep. While you can! :) I'm so happy for you guys!! You're going to be such a cute pregnant lady!!

Jen said...

Congratulations! Take super good care of yourself. Eat whatever sounds good whenever it sounds good. Sleep WHENEVER you want for as long as you want. (That won't happen again until the kid is 12 and away at camp.)

The next 3+ months are doosies. But once you're past that and you get out of the "eating too much Haagen Daas" (i.e. looking fat rather than pregnant) stage it gets really fun. What an adventure you're in for. Enjoy it!

M Wiest said...

that's so exciting!! let's face the facts, you are going to be the cutest pregnant chick in the whole world and rob's going to be a fantastic dad! and one more thing, your kid is going to love The Wylds!!!

Debbie Self said...

Congratulations Lil & Bear, that is so exciting!! I actually think the names you picked are super cute, I actually wanted to use the name Bella this last time, but then I didn't want to seem like I was obsessed, even though I am..LOL. Anyway, we're happy for you two :)

Annette said...

Congrats! That is the best news I have heard for quite sometime.

Marian said...

Congratulations to both of you. Lil remember that Granny and Grandad were married 4 years before their first baby and then they had 7 including 1 set of twins. Stay healthy and I will see you and Bear this Saturday.

Jessica Fields said...

Busted! Now Mom and Dad totally know that you and Bear are getting it on. Grrrrrross!!!!!

I'm really happy for you guys and I'll keep you in my prayers. FYI, I think it'll be triplets because moderation is just not how Lil does things.....

Hal Fields said...

Congratulations, you two. I knew you'd figure it out sooner or later. I'm so glad I don't have to explain to you how babies are made.

MJ said...

Congratulations both of you. This is terrific news, and if you have twins, you will be twice blessed. Hope you continue feeling great! This is a great blog. I have only 1 question: Pourquoi est-ce qu'il y a tant de francais? C'est presque comme je suis au travaille avec mes copines francaises.

Jason & Candy said...

I love the names! This is really good news. I am so excited for you guys. I love your blog too. Looking forward to the stories to come.

Beandip said...

Maura said...

Congratulations you two. You can tell I haven't checked your blog out in quite a while, but I am so excited for the both of you along with all of us family getting to add another little member to the link. Too exciting. You are going to look so cute pregnant, Lil. And Rob try not to drink too much beer to make your belly big so Lil doesn't feel bad when she starts getting big. Ha! The boys have tried to call a few times but you are so hard to get hold of. Anyways we are all so excited for you guys and love you lots & lots. Life will never be the same - One of the biggest joys of life.

That last message was from me (your Auntie Shawnee) not Maura. It posted that way for some reason. I guess my email is under Maura's name.
