Nine years ago I peed on a pregnancy test and it came back positive. I remember we had a friend staying with us and I happily volunteered to go get take out so that I could swing by the pharmacy to pick up a pregnancy test. It was a Sunday and our friend was supposed to be going home after dinner. Dinner couldn’t come soon enough.
I remember taking the test, seeing the two lines and then not being able to wait to tell my husband. So we snuck into the other room and I whispered in his ear “I’m pregnant!” His eyes popped out of their sockets and then we had to keep it hush-hush from our friend. It was sort of anticlimactic but nine months later and my first little one was born and I officially took on the mommy title…the best title I have ever had the pleasure of having.
Like many, the first thing I did after seeing two lines was to go and buy the pregnancy bible, What To Expect When You’re Expecting. Fast forward to another pregnancy and another child and being a mom of two now living in Hawaii, writing this here blog…
I am SO excited to announce that I have a blog post up over at the What to Expect When You Are Expecting’s site, Word of Mom. Who would have thought that I would be part of the WTEWYE crew those nine years ago when I first saw those two lines on that pregnancy test?
