After giving birth to three sons, Tim and Rachel Brummel, were done having kids … or so they thought.
Tim Brummel learned his vasectomy procedure didn’t take … only after his wife started acting “a little bit pregnant.” According to Brummel, his wife was often tired, ate more than usual, and even felt nauseous — like she had during her previous pregnancies. “We joked about it but we knew she couldn’t be pregnant,” he said in a YouTube video. “Then it dawned on us that we never got the test results from my five month checkup.” After a quick call to the doctor, Brummel’s suspicions were confirmed.
Once Brummel learned a pregnancy was possible, “I knew I had to try something,” he told A Plus via email.
By disabling their toilet and waiting for Rachel to use the bathroom, Brummel was able to grab a sample for a pregnancy test. “I did not even know if it would work,” he said. “I barely slept the night before as I tried to think through how to make sure I could take the test, and then, if she was pregnant how to tell her. I was also super nervous that she would find out and ruin the surprise.”
Luckily, he pulled off the sneak attack pregnancy test without a hitch … and sure enough, it was positive.
Taking advantage of this unique opportunity, Brummel wanted to make the surprise announcement as special as possible. The next day, while Rachel was out a baby shower, he bought some flowers and made a card that read, “To my baby mama / If you ever worried / that life would be a bore / put that fear aside / you are now a mommy of four.”
Between the card and the flowers, Tim hid the pregnancy test.
