Wednesday night Adam went to the movies with his friend Nick. He was only gone for about 1/2 hour when I had to go bathroom. Earlier in the week Adam & I talked about him picking up a pregnancy test for me next time he went shopping because I had been cramping for about 2 weeks but didn’t start yet. We wanted to make sure I wasn’t pregnant – just like we do every month that I miss. So I grabbed the test & about 30 seconds later I saw two lines. I sat there for 10 minutes staring at it in disbelief. I thought for sure it was going to be negative like it always had been. I tried to call him to ask him to come home right away but he was already in the show. As luck would have it, they were going to go see Lord Of The Rings III so I knew I wouldn’t hear from him for at least 3 1/2 hours.
In that 3 1/2 hours I swear I had every emotion possible. I was scared for every reason on earth, happy because I’m able to have kids, worried because Adam still isn’t working, panicked because I fell on the ice a couple weeks ago & that’s when the cramping started, excited because I finally get to be a mom, and frustrated because I knew I’d never be able to fit into my wedding dress because the wedding is still 3 months away.
Around 11:00 that night I called him & he told me that they were going out to eat so he wouldn’t be home for a couple more hours. I asked him if he could cut it down by an hour so I could talk to him before I went to bed. He ended up getting home close to 1:00 a.m. I had already fallen asleep but I woke up when the dogs started barking. When he came in the house I met him in the hallway by the bedroom. He asked what was going on when I broke down crying & told him. Thursday morning I took a second test just to make sure it was positive… this one took about 10 seconds to show 2 lines. We both had a really hard time coping because the news was so unexpected.
Once we figured out that we weren’t upset with that fact that we were going to have a baby but because of financial reasons and personal goals, we were able to get a better grip on what was going on. We both can’t wait to be parents, the news just came a little earlier then we planned.
When I was on my way to work that morning (Thursday), Adam called me to remind me to take care of a few things. As we were getting off the phone he said something that cracked me up. I will never forget it for the rest of my life….. “Well, one good thing about this… at least we know you’re not broke!” That’s my hunny. LOL.
