A Dad's Perspective.
Let's Raise a Blissful Baby Together!
Wow! We are Pregnant. I’m a BLISSFUL dad that’s for sure! I couldn’t be happier my wife and I decided to start a family. This is such a happy time and I want to document everything about it, which is why I decided to start my Blissful Dad Blog. Let’s start from the beginning…
When we decided to try for a baby, we did the research for the best time to get pregnant, tracked the calendar, and crossed our fingers. It was more nerve racking than I thought. Did it work? Are we pregnant? Did we miss the ovulation window? All of these things played in our heads as we waited. We wanted to have a baby. We were so ready.
My wife and I are high school sweethearts. I proposed to her in Paris next to the Eiffel Tower after 5 years together; we got married 2 years after that and 9 years later together, we decided to have a baby! We were more than ready. So, of course a few weeks into it, we excitedly purchase a pregnancy test but it came back negative. We were disappointed but it was possibly just too early.
A week after the negative pregnancy test, I came home to a wonderful dinner my wife had prepared and assumed it was because we were celebrating our 9 year dating anniversary. After dinner, my wife gave me a box. Not sure what it was, I opened it and it was the best gift a man could ever get. Wrapped in a box underneath some beautiful words from my wife was a POSITIVE pregnancy test! I have never been happier to see two pink lines. I couldn't stop the tears from forming in my eyes. I was ecstatic to know we were going to start our family, finally.
