Parker was the light of our lives.
I found out I was pregnant January 13, 2008. I had gotten off work early that afternoon and something told me to go to the store and get a pregnancy test, because my mind thought I was pregnant. Well I followed my instinct, went to the local pharmacy, and picked up a twin pack of pregnancy tests. My husband worked rotating shift work and was working some overtime so he was not home when I got home. Well I went home and took one of the pregnancy tests. I went downstairs and swept the floor that away I gave the test the appropriate time to register. Well once, I finished sweeping I ran upstairs, nervous as can be and it was positive. My husband and I had been trying to have a child for about 1 year before that. Therefore, when I found out I was pregnant I was so excited. I called my best friend and told her. I concluded that I wanted to make SURE I was pregnant before I told my husband, so I waited until the next day.
When I woke up the next morning I made sure, he was asleep and I went to the bathroom and used the other stick. I had locked the door and was staring at the test. Well I felt like an hour had passed and really it was only about 1 minute...sure enough it was positive also. Well I was so excited I could not even hide it from him when he woke up. I told him first thing I think he was excited but then again he thought I was joking. After about 30 minutes of convincing him I was not joking he finally started to get that I am gonna be a daddy grin.
