I still can’t believe it!
I’m gonna be a mom of 2 human beings and We’re gonna be a family of 4!!!!
Anxious mess is what i would describe myself as since finding out!!
That last picture, perfectly describes how we’ve all been feeling about this.
How did we find out?
Ha! This is a funny story! I was sure there was something wrong with my thyroid cause my hormones had been acting out of whack! For the past couple of months, I’ve been breaking out like crazy, my hair has been super brittle and thin, and it’s been hard to shed weight. All those symptoms have been more prominent recently. I don’t think it helps that I always borderline on the side of anemia. So I went to the doctor to get my thyroid checked and got blood work done!
The doctor said they’d call me the next day with my results.
That night, i had a nagging feeling to take a pregnancy test! So i did!
The pregnancy test had a very bold line and a VERY faint 2nd line. I couldn’t tell if i was just seeing a shadow of where a 2nd line would be. So i took another one. And another one. And another one. I think i took like 5 that night. And i made Chris take one for comparison.
Chris’s only had one line and no shadow. Thank goodness 😅😉.
But all of mine had a SUPER FAINT 2nd line.
I started panicking. I literally felt my sugar drop and i had to sit. And i just kept saying:
“Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god...”
meanwhile Chris was just giggling with excitement!
We basically swapped places from the first time we found out we were pregnant.
So after Chris eased my anxiety. We went to sleep. Correction; he went to sleep!
A part of me was excited of the possibility. And the other half was just panicked. I wasn’t mad at any point. We’re adults, and we‘re very aware of the consequences to our actions. Plus, I kinda knew there was a huge possibility of this happening since we had been making up for lost time from Chris’s trip to Berlin.
More about that here; Part One and Part Two.
So. I wasn’t mad. But had it been up to me, I would have wanted to wait maybe one more year, and i have a list of reasons why a one-year minimum sounded good. But then again, there’s never a perfect time to bring a child into the world. 🤷🏼♀️.
The next morning, I woke up to a call from a nurse. She said;
“Kat, you’re blood work came back just fine... but... congratulations you ARE pregnant!”
Holy moly. Let that sink in. I’m pregnant.
