I found out I was pregnant when James was in Arkansas for his first round of interviews with Tyson Foods. It is actually a pretty funny story. I was cleaning up the house, packing a few things, and I found an OLD pregnancy test. We were not planning to have kids for three or four more years, so I was going to throw the test away. I decided to take the test for fun knowing that it would be negative. I took the test and forgot about it for a few hours. I went back into the bathroom later that night and glanced down and it said PREGNANT!!! I was in shock. I had NO pregnancy signs or symptoms. I figured it had to be a mistake. I started chugging water and headed out to the pharmacy to get another test. I took two more tests and they were both positive!! James was on a plane during all this so he had NO clue. It was a complete shock to both of us, and we still didn't believe it until I took the blood test the next day. We had the next few years of our lives planned out and that night it all changed!! 8 months later on March 4th 2010 our handsome little man was born 11 days early. My water broke at 3:00am and I had to have an emergency c-section because he was breech. James Alexander (Xander) was born at 5:55am and he was 7lbs 12oz and 21 inches long.
