So Many Changes Part II

Months back I had a lapse in reality and thought it would be a good idea to start a family and Ben had even a bigger lapse in judgment and agreed. Well months and months past and no luck. I had grown up with the notion that when you decided it was time to have baby you and your loved one would try to create a baby and within in months you would be pregnant. That notion quickly flew out the window. I finally saw a doctor in June and she gave me a magic pill. I was told that it may still take a few months on this pill to get pregnant.

Well it is now July and I finally decided to do something about my chronic heartburn. I saw a doctor and he thought it would be great idea to stick a tiny camera down my throat. When I got to the surgery center the nurse made me take a pregnancy test which came back negative. I had the procedure and went home.

A few days later, a Friday, I woke up for another fun filled day at work. The night before I had not been feeling well and now had a canker sore. I had one home pregnancy test and since I was debating whether or not to take it I decided it was time to use it so I could stop thinking about it. Well, I took it and went about getting ready for my day. Three minutes later I went back to look at it and I saw something I thought I would never ever see....a faint line. I WAS PREGNANT!!!

I started shaking and screaming my words of joy to the dogs. No one else was around. Well, what is a girl to do at this point? Well I called my mother. After talking to her I called the father to be who had very little reaction to the news.

Months have passed and I am now almost 11 weeks pregnant. I am due Easter Sunday and since I am Jewish I am free and have nothing else to do that day. I am still in shock that I am going to be a mother. Miracles do happen.
