Guess who got his wife knocked up? This guy! I guess all that sex did the trick Lol For a little while now my wife and I have been trying to get pregnant. She really wanted a baby before she turned 30, before we moved to Paris, and before we sold the condos. This is how it went.

We both knew we were having unprotected sex on purpose (A lot of sex) and we both had long discussions about when to start trying. We haven’t even been married a year yet. However, as she pointed out numerous times I’m old(er) and I need to get going. Real nice, babe. She hasn’t been feeling very well and I had suspected something was up but I wasn’t sure. She took a home pregnancy test on Thursday night without my knowledge. Then she made her sister come over and her sister brought another one. Again without my knowledge. Next thing I know she calls me into the bedroom and shoves her sister out. Her sister was BEAMING so I knew something was up. She handed me the little stick and I looked at it then dropped it and hugged her. I think I scooped her up then put her back down. I gave her a really long kiss and started crying. Then we both started crying and laughing. It was literally one of the best moments of my life. She had already made a doctor’s appointment for herself for Friday since she hadn’t been feeling well. She told me she probably just needed a B12 shot so I didn’t realize it was to check to see if she really was pregnant. That stick thing said she was.

On Friday we went to her appointment and it’s true. We have a baby on board! I did it! I got my wife pregnant! I said does this mean I don’t get to have copious amounts of sex with you anymore and she said not as much but you will get rewarded until I get fat and sweaty Lol This is her first pregnancy and we are so excited. We went to her parents house last night and had all of her family there for the big announcement. They thought we were going to tell them something else so when she took off her jacket and had on a shirt that said We’re Pregnant her whole family wrapped us up in a giant group hug and started hugging her, high-fiving me, and really being happy for us. It was so great to be supported and loved. Her dad already pulled me aside to tell me if I ever hurt his daughter and grandbaby, etc Lol I know, I know. That won’t happen. I’m completely in love with my wife and my bad choices and really stupid arrogance days are over. Well not completely but I am making better decisions since being married.

Can you believe it! I’m going to be a dad x 4. I only wish my son Ryan could be apart of all of this. You know if he had lived he would be 14 years old. Wow. That just blows my mind. And by the time my wife has the baby she will be almost the same age I was when Ryan passed away. God takes life and gives life. It’s such a gift. A beautiful, heartbreaking, but wonderful gift.

Everyone keeps asking what we want. We both want a girl. Of course we just want a happy baby and we’re happy to have anything we get but we both said we want a little girl.

As for the adoption, we are full steam ahead on that. We have decided to start the search (again) and really put in a heartfelt decision to adopt. I think my wife wants to adopt a little girl that’s a little older than my boys. I’m fine with that. I think that would be awesome. I had always just assumed it would be a baby but that would make it a lot easier for sure. I called my adoption attorney and she called the service. We are going to adopt this summer. I don’t know when. I assume a regular adoption still takes, what, 12 to 24 months? Sooner because I have already done a kinship adoption? I really don’t know. I know it will be a lot of waiting. As far as I’m concerned the more kids the better. I love kids. My wife loves kids. She is so excited. I went out Friday after work and bought her a very expensive, very blingy diamond necklace from an exclusive jewelry store downtown. I needed something big and I don’t usually spend that much but this is a big moment and I wanted to make sure she sees how much I love her and our new baby already. She opened it up and started crying. She loves it. I just put up the photos from the past few days. Our pregnancy stick, the t-shirt my wife had on. My wife in the t-shirt. Our ultrasound. And me kneeling down kissing my baby. It’s a classic pose but effective.

Thank you all for the great Facebook love. I appreciate all of the comments. My family found out by calls, texts, or via Facebook. My phone has been flooded with messages and I’m so glad that everyone important to me is really happy. I knew this would happen. I didn’t know when but I just knew.

My wife is pregnant! Help me! Lol Oh boy are we going to get the full on pregnancy stuff this time. Last time I wasn’t allowed to go to any doctor’s appointments, nothing. I got ultrasound photos and that was all. I could ask my cousin, the birth grandmother, questions about things but that’s all I could do. It was very, very difficult.

Lindsay Fed-Ex’ed me a big bucket of pickles last night so she said they should be getting here today. She is so excited and already told me if she doesn’t get to be a godparent again she’s disowning all of us Lol I don’t know about that one. I think my wife has a few sisters or brothers already wanting to fight for that title. Drew laughed and said congrats bro, wait until you get the 2am nudge to get up and go get something for her. That doesn’t really happen, does it? I mean why would she get hungry at 2am? That’s just in movies. He’s funny though.

I can’t wait to see my wife’s little belly grow. I can’t wait to meet our new baby! I’m really excited about the whole thing. I really did get all I ever wanted from life. I went through heck to get here but it was worth it. I’m so happy right now. I wouldn’t change one thing.

We’re having a baby! 2018 is going to be an awesome year!

Have something to say?
