December 27, 2018.
I woke up that morning feeling crampy and tired so figured my good old lady friend was coming to visit. I’d taken a pregnancy test over the holidays just to make sure I wasn’t preggers before I indulged in the Christmas festivities. Sure enough, the test was negative.
I checked my period tracking app - 3 days late. I figured it was still nothing and that my period was on it’s way. I happened to have a pregnancy test left over and figured, what the hell, I’ll just check again.
The test was positive! I’m pregnant! My husband was at work so I couldn’t tell him yet. I wanted to make sure I told him in person. The excitement and happiness that came over me was something I’ll never forget. Our dog, Cali, must have thought I was crazy too because I just kept pacing back and forth, laughing and crying and checking the test over and over to make sure it was still positive.
A few months prior to this, I had convinced myself I was pregnant, took a test and it came up negative. I continued to brush my teeth and glanced over at the garbage can a few minutes later... noticing a ‘positive’ test.
My heart skipped a beat, I called for my husband and just as he got up the stairs, I realized I was looking at the friggan box the test came in. What a sick joke that was!
That whole day just didn’t feel real. I was in shock. I went to the store and bought more tests to make sure it was 100%. I wrapped up a positive test in wrapping paper and told my husband I must have missed this ‘gift’ under the Christmas tree. I’ll share his reaction in my next post!
My name is Kayla and I’m new to ALL of this! I’m 15 weeks pregnant and still don’t have a clue what to expect! I’m an open book, brutally honest, and even pretty witty!
Follow along on my journey of being a new mom-to-be, starting my own business, and life itself.
