5: When did Mommy find out she was pregnant? September 4, 2009 Who was the first person you told you were pregnant? Daddy Did you start telling everyone right away? No, we waited until Mommy was 10 weeks pregnant. How did you tell people? Mommy and Daddy were in the process of painting the inside of their house. So, they took pink and blue paint swatches to your Grandparent's houses and asked them what color they thought the middle bedroom should be painted. Your Grandma G responded, not pink. Your Mommy asked Grandma G if she was sure... then Grandma G finally got it. She jumped up and down with excitement. Your Grandma Darlene was confused why we would paint either room those colors. Finally Papa Jeff figured it out and they started screaming with joy. To tell your Grandma and Grandpa Michl, Mommy and Daddy bought a pair of small kid work gloves and asked your Grandpa if he needed an extra set of hands around the farm. He immediately asked if we were pregnant. How did you feel during your pregnancy? Mommy was sick from about 6 weeks to 14 weeks., but it was all worth it. How much weight did you gain? 29 lbs How did you feel when you heard baby's heart beat for the first time? Mommy and Daddy both cried. What names did you have picked out for me? Livyan and Kali
