When you know, you know.
Welcome to my world! The world of a Mommy or Mami (Spanish for my lovely heritage) to be! This is my way of documenting this amazing journey that I have been honored to embark on. I call it an amazing journey b/c well, it’s honestly amazing. It’s amazing to see what the human body is capable of. I say that I am honored by it b/c I know of many women who would love to experience what I am experiencing and can’t. For whatever reason, they just can’t. That being said, the views and opinions written here are just that, views and opinions. These are my views, expressed in whichever manner I deem appropriate. I seek to be as honest as humanly possible in this journey b/c hey, you never know who is reading and feeling the SAME EXACT WAY.
It was a warm and sunny August day, a Thursday to be exact. The birds were chirping and… Who am I kidding here? It was definitely August and definitely a Thursday, when I was sitting at my desk at work and this overwhelming thought/sensation came over me. I’m pregnant, I whispered to myself as I stared blankly at my computer screen. I can’t lie, my spidey senses kicked in and I just knew. I did the math in my head. The only time I have ever been great at math in my entire life and it made sense.
So I took a quick detour to CVS on the way home (totally did not tell my husband about my psychic afternoon), purchased one of those new age fancy digital tests and confirmed. PREGNANT. I sat there. For a good 15 minutes after reading the test, I just sat there. I was in a mixed state of shock/disbelief/happy/unsure/wtf is going on here mode. I didn’t know how to react. I calmly got up, got presentable and walked over to my husband and showed him the test. He too was in shock. So much so, that he asked that I take 2 more tests. LOL. My still being in disbelief I agreed. There we were after about 30 minutes, just staring at each other.
Did I mention we’ve only been married for a month?
