The Day That Changed My Life Forever!

August 30th, 2011

Yep, that's the one. It was a Tuesday, who would have ever thought that a Tuesday could be so important to me? I left work and was driving home when it dawned on me, I was 2 days late for my normally on time period. I decide to stop at Family Dollar and pick up a Pregnancy Test just to be sure, but instead of one, I bought three.

When I got home I read the boxes and got a kick out of the fact that two of the boxes were identical and the third was misprinted. Right away I didn't have much faith in these dollar store tests but I figured it will most likely be negative and I won't be wasting $18.99 on a plastic pee stick.

3 Minutes later I saw this..................

My heart started racing, I grabbed the box to confirm what two pink lines meant. Sure enough 1= NO 2= YES, Could I really be pregnant? I jumped in the car as fast as I could and headed straight to my local Walgreens. I needed digital confirmation.

20 Minutes later I saw this.............
I am Pregnant!
Oh my God

All at once I was pacing the house, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. It was the most exciting moment of my life and the emotions came rushing in. After six years together RJ and I were no longer just the two of us,we were starting a family, and I just had to tell someone!

My cousin Evie called just at the right time and said she was on her way over. Evie and I are rarely apart, her stopping by after work is a normal routine for us. As soon as she walked in the door I thought I was going to faint. I brought her out on the back porch and pulled out the test. She started jumping up and down with excited, while tears rolled down my face.

Now that I had said it out loud it felt real, but my nerves were still at an all time high, it was 6:00pm and RJ would be home from Softball at 9:00pm!
