The April Fool's Joke that backfired

It was two years ago today that I played an April Fools prank on some of my close friends that ended up being the ultimate April Fools on me! 
It had almost been a year since Jimmy and I were married and there were some running bets going that we would be pregnant before our first anniversary. 
(It's a Konrath thing, just trust me)

I now realized that joking about pregnancy is not as funny as it seemed, but at that time, I thought it was a great April Fools joke! 
So at church on Sunday, I borrowed a pregnancy test from my SIL who was pregnant and several of my friends definitely fell for it. 

It was all funny...

...until a few days later I was a few days late...

...and I did that whole pee-on-a-stick thing...

...and there were TWO pink lines!

April Fools on me! I was actually pregnant on April Fools Day and didn't realize it! I think God just might have a sense of humor and played his own divine April Fools joke on me:)

I immediately plotted on how to tell my husband the exciting news. But that's a whole 'nother post you can read here: How I Told My Husband I was Pregnant

It's crazy to think that just a year ago I had no idea the little blessing that would be in my life. She is the best thing that ever came out of April Fools and that's no joke!

  3. Awesome!! God sure is funny some days!! What a great gift your joke ended up being!

  4. I think God definitely has a sense of humor. Just like how my hubby and I always joked about having twins. Our first two are very close together and when we contemplated a third we would say things like, "well, we might as well have twins and be done with it" - Sure enough, God surprised us with twins this time around! :)
