Finding Out I was expecting, Again!
January 31st 2018 – I laid Alyssa down for a nap, and sat down on the couch to eat my lunch. I had just made myself my favorite sandwich which only consisted of Cuban bread and Ham. As I finished the sandwich, I immediately felt disgusted and wanted to throw it up.
“What in the world is going on,” I thought to myself.
This NEVER happens to me (I’m a natural fatty and never want to throw up food, haha).
“I haven’t missed my period, so what could it be?”, This was me literally just talking to myself on the couch, trying to stop myself from puking it all out.
I then remembered I found out I was pregnant with Alyssa (first born) before I ever missed a period. I then thought, “Yeah, I must be pregnant!” I woke Alyssa up from her nap which I NEVER do, nap time is sacred in this household, and it must not be disturbed. However, this day it did.
We drove to our nearest Target, I walked in and picked up a pack of 2 Clear blue Pregnancy Test. Aly and I got home, and I walked in and took a pregnancy test. I anxiously waited for the test to say “pregnant” & sure enough, 3 minutes later, the test said “pregnant.”
I was so happy, and SO nervous all at the same time. I was going to have another baby, Was I ready? I knew I wanted another little one, but all of a sudden I was filled with excitement and anxiousness.
I called Anthony but he was in a business meeting, He texted, “Are you okay?” I replied, “call me, because I think you would want to know the news” He instantly replied, “You’re pregnant!?” My answer, YES!, He replied with a bunch of hearts!
I was only 3 weeks along, so we told our immediate family and kept it a secret from everyone else until we were in the clear. We were so excited, we couldn’t believe it, we were being given another chance at bringing a bundle of joy int this world. We can’t wait to meet you, our angel!
Mama’s whether you’re a mama already, trying again, or trying for the first time, you are the strongest person we know! Always strive to be the best version of yourself, and never apologize for being the best mama you can be! Remember we aren’t perfect for the world, but we are perfect in the eyes of our little ones.
