Spreading the news via email!

Just a little note before you read on… I am NOT preggo! 😀 I can’t get pregnant anymore due to safety issues… I just wanted to remember the day I found out I was pregnant with Ruari. Enjoy!

Back in May 6th, 2009… here I was totally nauseous and exhausted… Yes, of course the day before was Cinco De Mayo and my friends did keep me out late… but, I shouldn’t be feeling as sick as I was. May 5th is my Bff’s (Courtney) birthday. We went to celebrate her birthday at a local Irish Pub (yup, on Cinco de Mayo :D). I just kept saying… “I’m SO tired. I can barely keep my eyes open. I don’t know if I can keep going to celebrate your day. I should go home.” Well, I didn’t go home I stayed out with my friends.

Well, back to May 6th, 2009. I’m so nauseous. So sick. Why? Well… hmm… maybe I’m pregnant? No. Maybe? I dig deep in my drawers and find an old Dollar Tree pregnancy test. I pee on it. Two lines. Wha? No way. I call Kelsey…. she says, “A line is a line. You’re pregnant!” Me: “Wha?” I don’t know… I call Courtney and she suggest I go to the doctor or buy more tests.

Well… I did both. Ha! Of course the doctor confirming it was the for sure: “Duh, you’re preggo.”. So… here I am with 5 positive pregnancy tests. I’m WAY too impatient to do some elaborate bun in the oven display to announce the pregnancy… So, I take a photo of the tests together. Here it is:

Now what do I do with this? Occasionally I think I’m pretty funny… so, I thought it would be hilarious to send a group Email to my best girls and a separate email to Mike with no subject and the only sentence, “Please see attached.” I attached the photo.

Within minutes I had responses from my friends that still make me smile. “Are you serious? This isn’t some joke.” “Hey! I need more info!” “Really? OMG! Congrats!” and so on…

The best response was from Mike. He called me and said, “Hey. Soo. What’s that photo?” I told him I was pregnant. Mike: “Oh. Huh. Ok.” Ha! Later when he got home he was so excited and was ready to tell his parents. I just love the shock my email gave him.

I’ve had an email address for SO long (since I was maybe 13) I don’t even know what I would do without it! Imagine how it will be for our kids! It’s a part of they’re lives from the beginning. I love that I could spread my good news with one small sentence, a photo, and a click. That’s it. I love this little I’m sorry video from Yahoo! How would your life be without email?
