Two years ago today, my life was forever changed. I found out I was pregnant! I woke up to get ready for work, but before I began my morning routine I took a pregnancy test.
Now for a little back story.. I struggled with endometriosis my entire life. I finally couldn’t handle the pain anymore and had surgery in October of 2014. It was amazing! No more pain, I felt like a new person! Fast forward to the end of January I just felt weird. I was supposed to get my period on a Friday, I took a test on Wednesday and it was negative! Friday came and went and still no period so I thought well, I’ll take another one on Monday just to be sure. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I immediately sent a picture to my friend Kayla who was pregnant at the time! (She was also the only person I knew would be awake at 5AM)I asked her if she saw the line.. I mean, it’s pretty obvious but I was in denial. She texted back with pure excitement while I sat in my bathroom floor feeling like my stomach was about to drop out of my butt.
I was 19, Trevor and I had been together for 3 1/2 years, we both had good jobs but I was terrified. Not about being a mother, but how was I going to tell Trevor? How was I going to tell my parents and the rest of my family? What was his family going to say? I was excited, nervous, scared but I got this feeling of contentment. I knew everything was going to be okay. I spent the rest of the day trying to figure out how I was going to tell Trevor. I took another test while at work and it was still positive! 5 o’clock came and I still had no idea how I was going to tell him. As I was walking to my car I hear this noise.. Trevor was sitting in his truck waiting for me. I had to think of something and quick. He got out of his truck and gave me a hug and I just blurted out “remember how I took that test the other day and it was negative?” And he said “yeah…” I replied with “well I took another one this morning…” before I could finish my sentence he knew and said “and it was positive huh?” I didn’t say a word. Was he going to be excited? Upset? Scared? He finished with “really!? It was positive!?” Sounding excited! “Well we have to go to Jackie’s (his sister) because she wrecked her car but don’t say anything!” We went to his sisters, he checked out her car with the help of his nephew Lincoln.. after we left his sisters we went to his house and talked for a few hours. About everything you could possibly imagine. We were both scared, but also so excited. I took a belly picture (or lack there of) considering I was only a few weeks along, but I wanted to document it!we both went to sleep that night completely at peace and content! Of course we were nervous to be parents so young, not married, we didn’t have a house of our own, but we knew it would all work out the way it was supposed to.
Now, 2 years later I have a perfect 16 month old son. He is so full of life, love and happiness. He makes me my life so much better. He’s learned how to throw a ball, which is currently his favorite thing to do. He loves cars and trucks just like his daddy. He gives the best kisses in the world, and says “I wuu ooo” (I love you). He is the sweetest little boy and truly makes the world a brighter place. I couldn’t imagine my life without him.
