Baby SpradlinIs this your first pregnancy? Yes!
When did you find out you were pregnant? March 5th-ish
Was it planned? Yes, but it happened a lot faster then we expected!
What was your first reaction? I was in shock. I had taken 3 pregnancy tests, all negative! finally I went into the doctor and they did a blood test to confirm. I had a feeling I was pregnant but I didn't want to get excited because of all the negative tests the past couple weeks.
Who was with you when you found out? I was at work when I got the phone call from the lab.
Who was the first person you told? Nate. I had to wait about 5 hours because I wanted to tell him in person... it was torture!

Do you know the sex of the baby? nope, we will find out at the beginning of June (elective ultrasound) when I visit Nate, and then confirm with our doctor a couple weeks later
Have you picked out names? we have some picked out but we wont decide until we find out what we are having
How much weight have you gained? -16 LBS so far, this is a combination of morning sickness and eating better. Hoping this loss in the beginning will help me later in the pregnancy.
