A New Chapter!

January 4th 2011

A day I will always remember.

I laid in bed, debating.

I had done it numerous times before.

It really wasn't a big deal.

When I finally rolled out of bed I decided I would give it a go.

I was sure it was way too early regardless- but I just wanted to check.

So I did. And I waited. Three whole minutes.

I turned on the shower water and got ready to hop in.

It took forever, the verdict.

I look back, one last glance. And I nearly fell to the floor.




IT SAID YES+

NO WAY! Are you kidding me?! Is this thing is seriously telling me, yes, I am pregnant?!

I looked again-still YES+.

I frantically called my sister who knew we were 'trying'. All I know is I kept saying “It says YES, It says YES” and my sister screaming in the phone with excitement.  I had always thought I would tell my husband first, and keep it between us for a little bit, but I had to tell someone and it wasn't the right timing to tell hubby!! (he was still in bed!). After I got off the phone with her I tried taking a picture of it with my cell phone. This is a very hard task. It took me so long to do! Then my sister called back and said my (three year old) nephew asked “Is Ka ka (my nickname) going to have a baby?” My sister said it was so weird because she never said my name, baby, pregnant, or anything!  Meanwhile the shower is still running. Twenty minutes later I finally get in, only to wash half my body before realizing I was using hair conditioner. It was the most exciting and scariest moment of my life. Even though we had been planning, wanting, wishing, hoping, I couldn't believe it actually happened. 

I am pregnant!! We are expecting our first bundle of joy September 19th.

Kat said...

wicked funny (although maybe just to me) is that I saw this coming just from your posts. I had a similar thing where when I got pregnant, but wasn't ready to announce it on my blog, I just couldn't seem to concentrate long enough or find anything worthwhile to blog about! My posts got farther apart and the content was sporadic! Looking through yours (granted I went straight through them without days in between) I was anticipating that this is when you would be pregnant!
