Secrets Are NO Fun!

It has officially been one week since the discovery that baby Regal is on it's way. We found out on a Thursday and that following Saturday, a mere 2 days later, we had a wedding to attend that would be a reunion with college friends. I didn't have much of a "plan" going in, but I figured no one would be paying attention to me and whether or not I was drinking anything. It didn't take but 15 minutes in to the cocktail hour before the BRIDE approached me and asked me why I wasn't drinking! She flat out said, "I'm spreading rumors you are pregnant since you aren't drinking..." All I could respond to that was, "Uhhh hahaha". Several of my friends approached me asking me why I wasn't drinking and if I was pregnant. Being that I was only 2 days in to pregnancy there was NO way I was spilling the beans yet! My best friend Cassy even looked at me and asked me if I had something to tell her. Ugh. That part was the worst. I can't lie to my very best friend! But I simply smiled and said No.

That night going to bed I knew I would tell Cassy and her husband Drew that we were pregnant the next day. Which is exactly what I did. On the car ride home from the wedding I broke down and told them, while hysterically crying. I hadn't really said the words "I'm pregnant" out loud yet and it came out with such a mix of emotions. Cass was really sweet though, as expected, holding my hand and reassuring me that God has big plans for Kyle and I.

Then Monday came, along with my discipleship group that night. I am very blessed to be a part of a discipleship group with 3 women from my church, including my pastor's wife. She began the night wanting to get "personal" and wanting to know our biggest struggle this past week. I almost laughed out loud. When it came to my turn I *once again* started hysterically crying telling them. They were so sweet, so excited and immediately prayed for Kyle and I. I instantly felt a weight lift from my shoulders and finally felt a sense of peace and JOY about this baby growing inside of me.

God has been so faithful to me! I've been praying for peace, and now my prayers having been moving towards a have healthy baby! This first week of being pregnant has been amazing!
