I always envision having kids in my mid-thirties, married and debt free. I didn’t think it would happen this soon.
I went on a trip to México with my family and Jesse. We had a great time and the food was amazing! However, I noticed that I was feeling full and never really hungry.
Before heading back to Houston, I noticed that my period was late but I wasn’t too worried since it happens once in a while. Well, a few days went by and obviously, I began to panic.
I took a pregnancy test at my job, I just had to make sure everything was ok. When I got the results, for a second I saw one red line and I instantly felt relief, but after looking at it closely I could see a very faded second line (picture below). I freaked out because I didn’t understand what the stick was telling me so I pulled a coworker to the bathroom to show her, she looked at me and said “Congratulations?”.
For a second I felt happy that I was having a child with the man I love and at the same time realized how much my life was about to change. One thing that really hit hard was how am I going to tell my parents. It was hard feeling that I have let my parents down, they raised me in a traditional home and I wanted to follow their example. This is what hurt me the most.
WhenI told my mom she was in shock and cried with me. I couldn’t tell my dad, I was too much of a chicken so my mom told him. I already saw my mom’s disappointed expression and I didn’t want to see my dad’s either. Mom was ok telling my dad but she told me I had to tell him and explain what my “plan” was. Are you moving in with Jesse? Are you getting married? Etc.
How did Jesse take it? He laughed…. I think he was nervous and when he saw me crying he wanted to be supportive in his own way, said: “ We are older, we finished college, we have a job, we are independent people, it will be fine”.
Yes, we are fine! Natalia was a surprise but an amazing blessing.
