5. HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE PREGNANT? Took a home pregnancy test 2-3 days before my period was due

6. WHAT BRAND OF HOME PREGNANCY TEST DID YOU TAKE? EPT the first time and then Answer Early for some repeats. I loved seeing that 2nd line.

7. WHO DID YOU TELL FIRST? Jason, when he got home from work. (I had been off that day for spring break.) I didn't want to tell him on the phone. It was VERY hard not to tell someone though.

8. DID YOU WANT TO FIND OUT THE SEX? Jason defintely did and I kind of did.

9. DUE DATE? Due date was 12/5 but was induced on 12/4 because baby was getting rather large.

10. DID YOU DELIVER EARLY OR LATE? Right on time, that's pitocin!

11. DID YOU HAVE MORNING SICKNESS? Yes and it sucked but nothing compared to other women I know.

12. WHAT DID YOU CRAVE? B.E.E.R. Jason even bought me O'Douls for the very occassional indulgence.
