I was 23 and I had just met the most amazing man. Quite frankly, I knew I would marry him. We got along so great and we were inseparable. Late nights out dancing, cooking, going on adventures, there was never a dull moment with this guy.
Months passed and it never really crossed my mind that I could be pregnant.
I never really showed early signs of pregnancy, but one day I felt a little… weird. I remember it was a Friday and I stopped by Walgreens on my way home. I picked up a pregnancy test – you know, a cheap one that shows the lines. I went home and took the test. A few minutes later I looked at it and said out loud.. “Oh My Gosh”, I was pregnant.
It took an hour or two before I figured out what exactly I should do, who should I tell, what do I say, where do I begin? I had no idea. I was 23 and I hadn’t really thought about this step yet.
I gathered up the courage and went down to his work. After a few clever sentences, I expressed to him that I was pregnant. He took off the rest of his work day and we went to the store for… another test.
This test was going to say PREGNANT or NOT PREGNANT and dang it, we were going to find out FOR SURE. Guess what it said?
Pregnant. And we were nervous as heck. It took months to figure out what we should do but you know… it always worked out. The funny thing is, no matter how much I prepared myself by reading book after book, once you have your child – you forget what exactly you read and you just go with it.
