a long annoucement story

Jul 25, 2011

Thanks for all the comments on my last, overly serious post ;) All is MUCH better now and I'm focused more than ever on being happy and excited for this baby...Haters gonna hate (as so many of you reminded me ;) and there's nothing I can do about it.. All I know right now is life is GOOD!

As of yesterday, I am now 9 weeks pregnant! And I am feeling GREAT! I tell everyone this but I seriously knock on wood every time I say that out loud. I'm just worried that this is the calm before the storm and that the morning sickness is about to come out of nowhere! But I am grateful for feeling so good right now. I'm just tired all the time and hungry every few hours but a girl can deal with that! :) I only start feeling queasy when I've put off eating for too long. I'm craving cold stuff like fruit, smoothies, yogurt, and lots and lots of water! I guess that's not a bad thing because I've lost 2 lbs. It's probably all the soda I gave up! :)

So here is my long story about finding out I was pregnant.
Nothing crazy, nothing planned. It's just a funny story I'd like to always remember! :)

Three weeks ago on Thursday 7/7, Ronnie and I went together to pick up a cashier's check for the deposit on the place he was going to rent in New Braunfels, near his school. Before he dropped me off at work, I asked him to stop at Walgreen's because I wanted to buy a pregnancy test. For about 2 weeks before that day, I'd been feeling extra tired and the fact that I was waking up hungry when I've never been a breakfast person really had me questioning things. Oh yeah, and did I mention I was 2 weeks late? ha! So I bought 1 box of 2 tests and he dropped me off at work.

By 11 am I couldn't wait any longer. I took those 2 pregnancy tests into the bathroom at work and did my thing. Not even 10 seconds later, I saw 2 pink lines. The second line was lighter but it was definitely there. My hands were shaking and I couldn't believe it was real. So what's a girl to do? Call for back up! From the bathroom stall I called my co-worker who was in the office and asked her to meet me in the restroom. She said she knew right then why I was calling.

As soon as she showed up, I handed her the test (in the wrapper, with only the results window sticking out) and she said "I would say this means you're definitely pregnant but go buy a digital test to be sure because I never trusted these." So off I go to the HEB right next to our office and I bought 2 more tests. On the way there I called Ronnie and told him "Honey, I'm kinda freaking out right now. I just took the pregnancy test and I saw 2 lines".... Which was followed by nervous laughter. He said "You're pregnant?! It's awesome if you are, we'll just have to figure out some stuff. But don't stress. Just hurry up and take the other test and let me know!".

I rush back to work and take the digital test. By this time, my co-worker had found her way back to the bathroom to check on me. I opened the stall door, handed her another wrapped up pregnancy test and let HER read it. She looked at it and "Yeah. You're totally pregnant". I freak out for a few minutes, I cry, I laugh and then I realize I need to call Ronnie! I tell him "Well, it definitely says pregnant" and he laughed even harder this time and said "Momma, you're really pregnant! I'm so fucking happy! Are you happy?" to which I replied "I am but I'm so incredibly shocked right now. But you are happy?" and he says "Yes! I know it's unexpected but we can do this and it'll be perfect. I'm coming to get you for lunch in 5 minutes!"..

Can I just say now how lucky I am to have him?

When I met him outside in the parking lot, he was standing outside the car with the biggest smile I've ever seen on his face. He hugged me and I cried and he was beyond excited, I was beyond nervous. We talked about the future and all the while I was in a total haze. I was just in complete shock. That night, I did my remaining 2 pregnancy tests and of course, they said the same thing. (Was I expecting anything different?) I was still in shock and Ronnie was over the moon. He wanted to take this picture so we could remember that day. I was a bit funky and swollen from crying and Ronnie had cried a little too ;) And two weeks later I can laugh at how freaked out I was because I'm just so flipping happy now and know that I just needed time to let it sink in. It was definitely a good day no matter what :)
