Chapter 2: Go Tell It On The Mountain

This chapter is how we told the secret of Baby A and Baby B. Telling our family, work and friends.

Now was the hard part of deciding when and how to tell people. Ideally, we would have liked to tell our family in person, but it was going to be hard to do with them living in Oklahoma and Kansas. We had originally decided to stay in Nashville for Thanksgiving so we didn't have to take any vacation days, but this seemed like a good reason to take a road trip.

Whoa Baby!

This is the story of how Kelly and I found out I was pregnant with one baby.....and then two!

This wild ride all started on Friday, October 2, 2009. Flu season was in full swing with this new Swine Flu making rounds all around the country - and right in my office. There was a case of Swine Flu diagnosed to someone at work and after hearing this news, I was convinced I had it too. I had a major headache and was told that was one of the first signs. So after lunch I headed home to rest and Google symptoms and cures. On my way home I called Kelly to tell him the bad news and he immediately did the Google search for me. He confirmed that a headache was a sign and there was a shot you could get. Problem was that you had to be a child or be pregnant to get the shot. A lightbulb went off in my head. Oh crap - could I be pregnant? Surely not. I wasn't nauseous, I just didn't feel myself. My mind started going 90 miles a minute and I did some math and realized it could be possible. Knowing it would freak Kelly out - I asked if he could Google the symptoms of pregnancy. You could hear a pin drop as he quietly did what I asked. Come to find out, headaches were first signs of pregnancy. Well - it could be either one.
