I think you become a parent the moment you find out you are pregnant. At least, that’s how it was for me. Every decision after that moment was about my child, no longer just about me.
I was scared and excited and every emotion bundled into one. We were in the middle of wedding planning when we found out. I remember just knowing I was, but I needed to take the test to be sure. There were butterflies in my stomach. Then, I needed to take a second test, just in case the first one was wrong. LOL, took another test the next day too.
After that, reality set in. Am I ready? What am I doing? Have I lost my mind? I can’t wait! It seemed like I covered every emotion in the span of ten minutes. As I sit here and watch my son explore and play, I can’t imagine it any other way.
How did you feel when you found out? Or how do you think you will find out?
