Finding out I was pregnant was overwhelming to say the least.
It was Mother's Day May 8,2011. I know! I found out on Mother's Day!
I woke up that morning and the husband was at work, so I decided I would just take a test and see to ease my mind. I really didn't think I was pregnant but Aunt flow was late and I figured "what the heck?!"
So here comes the exciting part.
I basically peed on a pregnancy test and wham bam two blue lines appeared and there I was. Pregnant.
I've heard some people say it took for ever to wait those few minutes to see what the result was, but I felt like it was only a few seconds.
And here is where I freak out.
My hands started to shake, I felt a flood of emotions rush through me. I was terrified, ecstatic, nervous, and nauseated all at the same time!
That's when I decided I should call the husband and let him know what just happened.
I know, I know. Over the phone while he was at work was probably not the best way to tell him he was going to be a dad, but at that moment in time I felt like he had to be suffering this crazy emotional state with me.
So while still standing in the bathroom, holding the pregnancy test, I picked up my phone and dialed his number. I didn't even have anything clever to say to him, so as soon as he picked up I just spit out..
"Uhhhh...I took a pregnancy test and it's positive. So I think I'm pregnant, will you pick up another test just to double check?!"
I think his reaction went something like...
So an hour or so goes by and he is finally home with another test.
I pretty much repeat what happened earlier, nothing too spectacular. And low and behold two blue lines again. Another positive test.
The husband and I are still feeling all these mix of emotions. I think most of the rest of the day was a blur, waiting for everything to just sink in.
We were going to parents.
