Life Changed. Forever

Crazy to think a year ago today, I decided I better take a pregnancy test just in case I might be pregnant before going to a dance here in the village where I would consume a few too many beverages.

Little did I know that that moment in my life would change me forever. 

I tested in the middle of the afternoon with a cheap internet test and sure enough, it was positive. But I didn't believe it, because the month before we had a false positive/very early miscarriage - the doctor wasn't sure, but either way it resulted in negative results. 

I remember calling my sister and non-chalantly asking her, who encouraged me to test again and texting Alison, who also told me test again but with a digital. I told M and he was right alongside me with not beleiving it! I decided I would forgo drinking that night and test again in the morning. 

Saturday morning came EARLY! Like 5 AM early. I lined up my tests on the bathtub, cheapest to most expensive. One by one they were positive, I couldn't believe my eyes. They filled with tears instantly. I was shaking with excitement, could this really be?? I ran into the bedroom and attempted to wake up my hung over husband, still shaking, tears streaming down my face, waving a pee stick in his face (the cap was on). There was no guessing - it actually said pregnant, no determining if there was a line, just blunt and obvious, I had the littlest bit of life growing inside of me after 4+ long years. 

M was happy, but managed to go right back to sleep. I texted my sister and Alison, whom of course were not awake to share in my news!! I couldn't go back to sleep, my adrenaline was on high! Our dreams were finally coming true. I came out to the great room and told the dogs and cats that we are having the baby. I danced in the living room with the dogs. I was on cloud 9!! 

When M finally got up, he was ecstatic too, I cried again, we laughed, we dreamed even bigger than we ever had, still cautiously though. My Dad had popped over and I couldn't help but to spill the beans to him too. My sister called and was over the moon - it was just perfect! My Mom was at a family cottage, and I wasn't going to be able to see her until her birthday, so we decided to surprise her.

We also ended up seeing K & S, so we told them too secretly, although S knows me good enough to pick up on something being "off" with me. 

The weekend was spent secretly celebrating between M and I, me pretending to be drinking, but it was perfect. 

Our lives forever changed for the very best. This weekend will always be soo special to M and I and hopefully Noah too!! We are so incredibly blessed to have him part of our lives and I look forward to spending this weekend with him in my arms this year to join in the festivities!!

Happy Canada Day Weekend friends!! Let the festivities begin!!!
