Hey Guys! Welcome to day 4 of Mom Week! Today I wanted to do a survey about Matthew! So let's get started!!
WAS YOUR PREGNANCY PLANNED?:No, my pregnancy was definitely not planned. It was a HUGE shock
WERE YOU MARRIED AT THE TIME?:
No I was not.
WHAT WERE YOUR REACTIONS?:
I was petrified! I was so so so scared! I cried, I freaked out. And then I calmed down and was so so so ridiculously EXCITED!!
WAS ABORTION AN OPTION FOR YOU?:
HOW OLD WERE YOU?:
I was 21 when I found out, 22 when he was born
HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE PREGNANT?:
It is really a funny story. I had been sick for a few weeks so we went to the doctor to see why. I have been going to the same doctor for a long time, so I call him by his first name. He said he was going to get a urine sample because UTIs are a common cause of diabetic problems. So when I came back in the room I told Matt "Wouldn't it be funny if he came back in and said you're pregnant" and we laughed about it. Well two minutes later he came in and said "Well no sinus infection and no UTI but I do know what your problem is" and I said "WHAT?!?!" because at this point I knew what was about to come out of his mouth. He said "You're pregnant" and I said "That's not funny Jack".
WHO DID YOU TELL FIRST?:
DID YOU WANT TO FIND OUT THE SEX?:
Yes Yes Yes. Mostly to prove to everyone that I was right. I knew it was a boy from the beginning.

DID YOU HAVE MORNING SICKNESS?:

I was really easily irritated when I was pregnant. So everyone.

He's a boy
DID YOU WISH YOU HAD THE OPPOSITE SEX OF WHAT YOU WERE GETTING?:
Not at all.
HOW MANY POUNDS DID YOU GAIN THROUGHOUT THE PREGNANCY?:
DID YOU HAVE A BABY SHOWER?:
