But at least let me share with you the story of how we found out we were going to be parents. I had off the week between Christmas and New Years and spent most of that time at my parents' house since my sister was home for the holidays. My mother has always called me a slug because I'm pretty lazy and really enjoy a good day of sitting on the couch watching reality television. This week though, I just wanted to be on the couch with my eyes closed. All day. All night. At one point apparently I was snoring pretty loud which I don't usually do. I just couldn't get enough sleep. And I kept having to take really deep breaths. And I was taking tums like nobody's business. I knew something just wasn't right.
December 30, 2012, I decided it was far enough past when I was supposed to have my period and it was time to just suck it up and take a test. LoLo was at work and I had just come home from sleeping over at my parents' house. I was all alone (well, except for Bronx). I took the test and almost immediately, this is what came up:
|Thank you for making the test bi-lingual. #aydiosmio|
I went home and took the second test. Same result.
|Same shocking bi-lingual result|
I got to the hospital where LoLo works and sat down with him in the cafeteria. I told him to close his eyes because I had a surprise. When he opened his eyes, the test was in front of him and he was like "Ummm is this real??" We basically sat there in stunned silence for the next 20 minutes.
Come back tomorrow for the story of how I told my family and how I nearly slept through a New Year's Eve party at my house the next day!
