Oh guys!!!!! I’ve been waiting for so long to finally write these words on the blog: I AM PREGNANT! It feels surreal. There’s so much to tell you, but where do I start? Okay, how about I start from the beginning – the day I found out I was pregnant!
It was in December, a typical day after work. I was planning on going home, but as I crossed the street, I just decided, in the middle of the road, to turn around and go to the Jean-Coutu next to my workplace to purchase a pregnancy test. I didn’t expect to be pregnant at the time, but for a while, I felt there was something off about my body, and something told me to do a pregnancy test. I purchased one that came with two sticks.
As soon as I got home, I did what I had to do, but the first test didn’t work! There was no line, not even one. So I did it the second time. The first line appeared right away. At that moment, I felt a sense of relief (Timon and I already booked our plane tickets to go to Japan, and being pregnant would’ve changed our plans) BUT I was also sad for not seeing a second line appear. Deep in my heart, I wanted to be pregnant…and that’s when the second line appeared – but it was barely visible. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I wasn’t sure if it was positive or negative. I thought at that moment my eyesight had worsened and that I needed a new prescription.
I left the second stick on the counter next to the sink, took my coat and walked to the Jean-Coutu next to my house. I bought another test (THIRD one, guys!). On the way back home, the whole time as I was walking to the condo; I was thinking about ten thousand things at the same time – What if I’m pregnant? How am I going to tell Timon? What am I going to cook today? How are we going to Japan? Oh wait, I can’t eat fish tonight – wait… can I if I were pregnant? Oh boy, never have I felt so confused but at the same time excited. How can these two emotions go together? *raise eyebrow*
So I took the THIRD test and held my breath the whole time. In just a few seconds THE TWO LINES APPEARED! It was so clear, so obvious that…
I AM PREGNANT!
I fell down on my knees and started to cry – TEARS OF JOY! And I prayed to God and thanked Him for this miracle – it’s truly a miracle.
My heart is filled with so much love and joy that I can’t contain myself. I have to share this news with you, whether you know me or not. God has blessed my marriage in so many ways, and I just want to share with you how He can bless yours too!
If you’re also expecting, or you’re currently trying, I hope you’ll find some insightful information about pregnancy as I share my journey with you. If you’re already a mom, please share with me some tips. I’m sure I’ll find them useful as I prepare myself to be… a mom (Oh boy! Somebody, pinch me! I still can’t believe it! 0_0).
