I Just Knew

When did you first realize you were pregnant? Was it when your period was late and you took a test? Did you just know? Did you find out while trying to diagnose another symptom or illness?

I have to say with all my symptoms, I just KNEW I was pregnant.
I had sore boobs. I was getting dizzy and a little nauseous every now and then. I was in the bathroom frequently. I was late for my period.

Last night I remembered the excitement I felt as I waited a few extra days to take a test. Just to be absolutely sure. I had this overwhelming feeling that yes, I was pregnant. In bed I would hold my lower stomach all night knowing something amazing was happening in there, to keep everything warm. How could I not? After 2 years of nothing, something was finally happening!

OK you are looking at my age and the '2 years of nothing' and wondering WHY? Well technically we were never 'trying' (but not really preventing either) but in my mind it was a disappointment every time my period came around. I think I was destined to be a mommy! I don't really remember wanting much else.

After 8 days I convinced Sweet Fiance (yes we were engaged beforehand) to buy some tests. We headed to our regular grocery store and asked the lady what the best home pregnancy test was, and she told us to go to the Dollerama. Seriously?? The Dollerama?? OK! Off we went to the Dollerama, bought a couple tests.

Boy was I nervous. I really wanted a positive. I remember that day very well! I was wearing this cute flowy purple shirt and it was St. Patricks Day!

I took the test and came out of the bathroom....and waited.... OK does that not seem like the longest wait ever?

Sweet Fiance wanted to be the one to look at it first, and so he did. I peeked over his shoulder but couldn't really see anything. Then he turned around with a huge smile on his face and said "my baby's having a baby!"

I have never cried so hard because of something I was so happy about! This really was the best day of my life. It was so incredibly special to share that exact moment with him. We spent a long time hugging and laughing and crying (and jumping up and down). It was simply amazing!

What's your story?

Is there anything in particular that reminds you of the day you found out?

Every time I drive through a specific neighborhood I think of when I found out. It was a Friday morning about 7:30 when I took the test even though I had to be out the door in 15 minutes. It was immediately positive. I ran down the hall to my husband and in between tears said the test was positive. He reassured me everything would be perfect and shoved me out the door. Love that man!
Why the neighborhood would remind me? Because I would be going there that following Monday interviewing for a new job that would begin basically in about 7 months. Yep, I'll take this job over that one any day!

I do!!!! I remember with one of my kids that it was a very stormy night, and we went out just to buy a pregnancy test, we were so happy when that test showed "pregnant", I remember each pregnancy like it was yesterday I found out, augh! don't you just want to have another child every time you remember that especial moment?
