I was about to flip my life another time.
I remember reading the test.
It was an out of body moment. 22 and just after getting married and moving half way across the country and flipping my life.
A honeymoon baby.
I had stopped at the pharmacy on my way home from interviewing for a nanny job, which would be my very first “job” on the East coast. I hadn’t told my husband about my concern that my whole body was experiencing.
I remember numbly driving home.
My new husband’s intuition was correct when I walked thru the door a few minutes late. I don't remember exactly how I told him I was pregnant, I just remember he knew.
I sat on the edge of our bed in our tiny apartment, in my tshirt and shorts crying. I couldn't accept it to be real.
Shortly after the news broke we went shopping for new pants for the soon to be dad. All the while my body and brain surged with the knowledge my life had instantaneously changed.
The best suprise that could ever happened.
