The fairytale of finding love, marrying your princess charming, buying a beautiful home, having a million kids (you know what I mean lol) and living happily ever after doesn’t always pan out but sometimes it does. I can honestly with all my heart say my husband Robert is my best friend, soul mate and the love of my life. We are partners in crime and never make decisions without coming to an agreement that we are both happy with. Life is hard, sharing your life with someone is even harder but when you have the right person next you, it’s a breeze!
My hubby and I always talked about having a family but we never thought to talk about “what if we can’t”. It’s something many marriages go through and you don’t realize how common it is for women to have problems conceiving. It is part of life and sometimes we women don’t understand it and feel guilty but there is a bigger person in charge and someone who never lets us down…God!
On Monday, March 5 I mentioned to Rob (my hubby) how I was feeling, just a bit different. I thought in my mind, eh it’s probably nothing. I felt VERY tired and fatigue and anyone that knows me knows I am a ball of energy and I’m always on the go. I tend to over do it sometimes and don’t know when to stop and rest lol. I’m an overachiever and hardly sleep!
On Wednesday, March 7 I am having a conversation with my best friend who is also expecting and she tells me she has a “feeling” this month is MY MONTH. I don’t know what made her say that but she did. I finally opened up to her and told her how I was feeling the last 3 days, we were giggling like little girls with the possibility of being pregnant together and already making plans to buy Disney Year Round Passes to take our kids…crazy! But kept it cool and TRIED so hard to not get my hopes up!
On Friday, March 9, like most mornings my hubby got up at 5am to workout. When he arrived home around 7am I realized I was still in bed ASLEEP and running late. I told him finally how tired and fatigued I was feeling the last couple of days and he said “I’ve noticed your mood is different”. We discussed the possibilities of me being preggos but I didn’t want to get my hopes up. We had been trying for a year and a half with no luck :( We both left for work that morning and thought nothing of it. During my lunch hour I went to CVS and bought a pregnancy test. The digital ones that say PREGNANT OR NOT PREGNANT! I needed it to spell it out, I didn’t want any confusion with lines! But held off….didn’t do it, I was scared to be disappointed!
Saturday March 10, I decided to take a NAP in the middle of the day. I NEVER nap and NEVER stop so I found it so odd all I wanted was my bed. Hubby went to get a haircut and I thought perfect, Nap time! Two hours later, I was STILL NAPPING when he got home. It had been on his mind as well about me being pregnant. I told him I bought a pregnancy test and he said “Lets do it”. I was so nervous and anxious that my heart started to beat fast. I took the test and right before he read the results he said “I know you have something cookin in there and touched my belly”.
Not even a minute later……… our lives changed FOREVER!!!!!!
Since it was Saturday we had to WAIT till Monday to call the doctor. We were dying inside and had to get confirmation with a blood test. I went to work on Monday called my OBGYN and told them about my positive results. They asked if I wanted to come in that day and I said YES. Rob met me at home and we went to the doctor to confirm our blessing. At 4pm that same day, the nurse confirmed….CONGRATULATIONS YOU ARE PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Baby Garay Due November 14!!!!!
