I still remember the day when I took that first test. I remember a couple of weeks before, I had been complaining to my husband that my chest was hurting and felt very sore. Since it was my first pregnancy I wasn’t sure what all these new symptoms were.
We got married September 24, 2011 and a year had come and gone.
January 24, 2013 I woke up not feeling to well, my husband and I had bought a couple of pregnancy tests because of the way I felt. But, I honestly didn’t think I was pregnant. I woke up that morning and thought to myself well I’ll just take a test to get this off my chest it’s probably all in my head. My husband had already gone to work so I took the test and left it in the restroom and just started my day, I made myself breakfast and cleaned up a bit. After a couple of hours I had to use the restroom and saw the test on our bathroom sink and remembered. I turned it around and there it was those two little lines.
Wow, I can’t even begin to explain my feelings when I saw those lines. I wanted to scream of excitement and cry of happiness. So many feelings all at once. I couldn’t believe it I looked at it for a good couple of minutes, and called my husband. He answered and was a bit busy but I told him “Babe, I took the test!! And its positive!!!” He couldn’t express his feelings too much because he was with a client working but, I could tell by the sound of his voice he was very happy as well.
Soon after I had to babysit so my husband and I didn’t get to see each other until really late that night. When he picked me up, we hugged each other and were very happy. We then actually went to the store to get a couple more tests just to make sure and they all came out positive so it was all for sure. I was pregnant with our first baby 🙂
The day after I woke up and had my first and only morning sickness, It’s like my body said OK now you know, here is some morning sickness 🙂 That day was my sisters graduation from her CNA and I remember feeling horrible because my body was aching and I couldn’t really tell them because I didn’t want them to guess so that we can surprise them on our own. After, we hit the store and bought a bib that said “Hi, I’m new here” and wrote every ones nicknames like Auntie, Grandma and Grandpa and a couple of days later surprised them with that 🙂
My pregnancy went pretty smooth, my body ached and was sore the first couple of months and I remember being very sleepy. Going into my second trimester we then got some news that my son had a heart condition and we were very shocked. But, we had faith in God that everything would be perfect.
He was born September 25, 2013 at 8:23am, a day after our anniversary and now he’s soon to be 4 and he’s the most perfect, energetic, loving little boy ever 🙂
