The Day That Changed Our Life



March 22, 2010

It was just another normal Monday for me. I woke up at 6 am, brushed my teeth, washed my face, did my make-up, did my hair, got dressed, bummed around the house for a little bit until it was time for me to go to work. Work was nothing too exciting, just another normal work day for me. The day went by pretty quick, it was approaching 3:00 and almost time for me to leave work, go home for a little bit and donate blood :] Which I absolutely LOVE doing. I also love the fact that MY o negative blood is saving someone’s life. It’s an awesome feeling!!!

Lately, I’ve noticed something wasn’t right with my body, the way I was feeling. My boobs were in so much pain, I could hardly sleep. What was going on? :/ That ‘normal’ Monday turned into a not so normal Monday after all. On Monday, March 22, 2010 at 3:02 pm, I found out that I am pregnant. I honestly took the test expecting it to say ‘not pregnant’ thinking this way I was feeling was just my period, but I was wrong. I was completely wrong. I didn’t want to look at the test, and I definitely did not want to be at work. So I shut my computer down, turned off all the lights, locked up and I was on my way home.

I needed a girl to talk to, so I called Hannah Banana. I talked with her my whole way home and a couple minutes after I got home, until Justin’s car pulled up. Now it was time for me to tell him, I was scared. I didn’t know how to say it. I didn’t tell him right away, instead I let him work on his car for a little bit until he could tell something was wrong. He starts asking questions and finally says “Are you pregnant?” That was when I burst into tears and he knew what the answer was. He hugged me; he kissed me and told me he wasn’t mad, that he was actually kind of happy. I started going on and on about how I won’t be able to use my Six Flags Season Pass, how I was no longer able to donate blood.


The rest of the night we talked, relaxed and went to Walgreens to buy more tests. I have taken 3 so far!! All say Pregnant. I suppose now is the time to call and make an appointment and start reading baby books, because I have no idea what to do next!

xo.

CONGRATULATIONS!! My mom got me a 2009 Pass last year for 6 flags and I was upset cuz I thought I wouldn't be able to use it. But I went like 6 times. Relaxed in the wave pool. Went on the batman and felt maia kick terribly for hours on end (i don't reccomend it), and ate a turkey leg while enjoying baby rides!! hahahah.

Hang on, it's a wild ride!!!

Thanks Hun! I'm actually freaking out about the whole situation, but I go in today to confirm it with a blood test and check all my levels because I am only 3 weeks, then i get to do all the other schtuff.
I was thinking about going on all the baby rides and some water rides possibly, if i am able to. Lol :D
I'm pretty excited but nervous!

Thanks dear. I think my hCG level was 186. I'll be going in today as well so they can check it again. Then I get to schedule my first appointment :D
