Well… what a day… Leaving home to head off to work.. Not feeling to crash hot… a bit moody actually… Today is shanes 24th birthday.. Im stuck doing the morning shift 9-1 and hes stuck doing the night shift 12 till 9… so we did the birthday pressie last night. He scores big time, lots of nice gifts.
I had recently booked in to get my port moved as it sticks out a lot since loseing weight.
1st of may was operation day!
I stopped in at the supermarket to grab some tim tams for morning tea and see those groovey digital pregnancy test are on sale. I LOVE those tests, so many of my friends had used them and i love how they show PREGNANT or NOT PREGNANT.
I knew i had to test before my op because i had skipped a period, but i knew it was due to stress and grandad passing, but i grabbed on while they were cheapish.
So after getting my tim tams and the very flash test i headed to the loo. “Stage Fright” i couldnt pee..
5 min later, i headed to work. Downed 2 cups of tea a tim tam and a glass of OJ and dashed to the loo.
I sat there thinking about what it would say.
NOT PREGNANT- I can have my surgery done and my pill is actually working! and no need to worry about the missed period..
PREGNANT- ummmm all i could really think of was… “Ummm shit”…. hahaha…
Shane and i had only recently been talking about a little brother os sister for jett and that “Maybe” we would have a try after our holiday in june..
But if it did show up pregnant then i knew we were going to be stoked.
He didnt even know i had bought the test, I dont even know why i really got it. I was fully convinced it was going to show up not pregnant and i would have just wasted a good test… But i was busting to go to the loo and this was my only chance..
So i peed on the stick..
Testing, testing, testing….. i couldnt watch… lol
so i stuck it up on the window and waited… Rethought my feelings on things and just knew it was going to come back pregnant.
I slowly stood up and looked the other way… Closed my eyes and picked up the test.
I didnt even flush the loo… i ran out of the toilet.. in to my really good friends hair salon and firmly said..
“tennielle.. i need you” …hahaha she walked in to the waxing room and i shoved the test in her face, He jaw dropped. I was in compleate shock!
No one even thought i could possably be pregnant, i never mentioned anything, i didnt think it was possable. But i was.. I AM!
Morning goes by and i rock up to mums… Tell her theres something i need to talk to her about and went to the loo… walked back out and told her Grandad gave me a present.
” Mum… im having a baby!”
She jumped up and grabbed me so quick i thought she was going to tackle me!!
All she kept yelling was ” THANK YOU! THANKYOU!!”
Then we jumped up and down for ages.. hahaha
I had worked out that shane and i concieved our baby only a few hours before my grandad passed away. This was his little gift to me.
Me , mum and my brother rhys went to the doctors at 2pm, did another test and had bloods done. all came back positive.
9.30pm Shane finishes work. walks in after having a shocking day and sits on the couch. I was thinking all day how i could tell him.. I held it in ALL day!!! Im so proud if myself!
I put the 2 test in a little box and when he got home i said “ive got one more pressie for you..close your eyes” Then i gave him the box.
He opens it and sees the 2 tests both with 2 lines and is in shock! ( the little sooky bum was pretty much crying..lol)…And dont try say your went babe… cause you were.. Hahahaha.
So after an all round shitty day for him, he got what hes always dreamed about. His first baby.
…..Thats how it all started.
