That's right! On Tuesday morning, September 18th, 2012 our world was forever changed! We found out we are going to be parents! Here is how the day played out…
We made the decision back in June that I would quit taking my birth control pills and just let God work in His timing. We had been analyzing and debating for a while about it and decided that we would just let God make the decision for us. I didn't really have any expectations or hopes right away. However, when August rolled around and nothing had happened I found the disappointment set in. So when September rolled around I was watching pretty close. I had an extra test lying around and decided to just go ahead and take it to get the disappointment out of the way before I made it to school. I took the test and went about my business, fully expecting a negative test, I hopped in the shower. When I got out of the shower I glanced at the test, and to my surprise, there were two pink lines! Jonas was still sleeping because he didn't need to be at work until 9:30…a normal wife would have probably woken their husband up. Knowing my husband…I decided not to completely rock his world at 6:00 in the morning. Not to mention he would probably have not been able to process anything the rest of the day. I decided to tell him when he got home that evening.
In the meantime, there was NO WAY I could keep that bottled up all day. I called the one person who I have shared EVERYTHING with since we were 3, Britny. SHE DIDN'T ANSWER! So I called the next future soon to be Aunt, Jen. I had to hold the phone away from my ear at least 6 inches because of the sheer squealing. It quickly knocked everything into reality! Britny finally texted me about 9 and I happened to be in my conference period. I called her right away! When I told her the good news she was happy to SHARE my joy…( another post about that later :p)
The day could NOT have gone any slower! I had racked my brain all day on how I could tell Jonas the good news. Jonas has always had goofy nicknames for me. One of my recent nicknames has been Lil Mama. He comes and eats lunch with my on Friday's when I don't have lunch duty and on our iCal it's labeled "Lunch w/ Lil Mama" for the rest of the school year. He didn't know how true that nickname actually was. Soooo I decided to make a t-shirt that said Lil Mama and have it on when he got home. Either he didn't get it at first or he was just in shock and trying to act like it wasn't true…With such exciting news, I knew we were going to need a chill night. On the way home from work, I stopped and picked up a movie very fitting for the occasion "What to Expect When Your Expecting". That was the end of the day that our world was changed :)
Now that I am about 10 weeks along, we are getting more and more excited. We know this is going to be a tough but very rewarding journey as parents. We can't wait to meet our little gummy bear!
