May 14th, 2012 I took a test that would forever change my life. Yep, you guessed it… a pregnancy test. I remember it like it was yesterday… And although we wanted a baby, seeing the word PREGNANT pop up so quickly on the digital pregnancy test screen was a huge surprise. It was the day after Mother’s Day that I found out I was going to be a MOM… Something I had always dreamed about.
Martin, my boyfriend at the time (now fiancé) and I had just moved into a new apartment together. Since very early in our relationship we dreamt about having kids together… So while our pregnancy may have come to a shock to many of our family and friends, we had already spent many buzzed nights talking about how we wished we were parents. Usually, the conversation would end with us agreeing we weren’t quite “ready” to start a family but a month earlier in April we decided to hell with being ready, we were going to just see what happened.
