Wednesday March 9th 2017, the day our lives changed forever.
I want to document this mostly so I don’t forget it, so don’t mind my rambling.
Leading up to this day I wouldn’t say I necessarily had the “normal” symptoms. I noticed I was going to the bathroom a lot more than normal and lets just say it was..smelly. Also, I would all the sudden get crazy hungry. I started to suspect something but didn’t think too much of it.
Two days after “mother nature was supposed to come calling” I decided it was time to take a test.
At this point I hadn’t told David about my suspicions, I wanted to be sure before I said anything to him.
Work that day seemed to craaaaaawwwl by. My plan was to stop at Walmart really quick on the way home to grab that trusty little gadget. David had ridden with Paul to work that day and he was wanting to stop at Lowe’s on the way home. I was hoping to beat him home and quickly take the test before he arrived. Well..of course things did not go according to plan. Right after I left work David called me and wanted to know if I could pick him up at Lowe’s (face palm). I told him I needed to stop at Walmart but he said he didn’t mind waiting for me. Seeing no graceful way out, I agreed. I worried the whole time about how I was gonna pull this off without telling David anything. After running into Walmart, double bagging my “extra” purchase, I hid it under the seat of my car, all the while trying to think of a way to sneak it in the house. Thankfully I had worn a hoodie that day so when we pulled in the garage I tucked the contraband into my pocket desperately hoping David wouldn’t try to hug me! After safely making it to the bathroom I quickly took care of business and hid the smuggled goods behind the shower curtain and ever so anxiously patiently waited the longest 3 minutes of my life. Pacing back and forth in our bedroom, watching the seconds tick away. As soon as 3 minutes came I ran to the bathroom and cautiously checked. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw not one but two pink lines!! I was totally freaking out! Have you ever freaked out when you weren’t able to react or make any noise whatsoever?! Not an easy thing to do!!
I didn’t have any grand way of telling David and was freaking out enough that I just needed to tell him right away. So I asked him to come here for a minute. He walked into the room and like a total dork I just held up the test and didn’t say anything. He stood there and just stared at it for a few seconds and then looked up with excited, disbelief in his eyes “Are you serious?!?!!!!” Unable to find words yet, I just nodded my head, my eyes filled, I’m sure, with disbelief. Even though we had been trying I think we were both kind of in shock that it was actually happening.
We decided to do another test just to be sure. The results were the same, 2 little pink lines!
And that’s when our lives forever changed..
