OMG !!! I can’t believe this day has finally come. The moment when we find out if we are pregnant or not. The wait felt like forever. In reality it was just a little over a week 😉
The day started with me going into blood work for the pregnancy test. Same routine as with all the morning monitorings we are all so familiar with but this time we were testing for pregnancy. I was so spaced out during the ride to the clinic that I actually missed my subway stop. Perhaps I would later be able to attribute that to pregnancy brain? lol .. too soon? After I finally got my act together and back tracked to make it to get my blood test. I spent the day doing work and trying to occupy my thoughts as I waited for the call.
Below is a video I recorded while waiting:
I was told that I would get the call in the afternoon. Noon came around .. no call, 1 pm .. no call .. 2 pm … at 3 pm I started getting a bit worried and terribly anxious. All sorts of thing were going through my mind. My results were so bad that they are leaving me last to contact? or perhaps my phone is not working? I decided to check the latter and phoned my telephone number from my computer. What happened? It went straight to voice mail?!?? What??? I tried again, same thing. I am beginning to freak out a bit, out of all days this is the day where my phone does not work. I pause and think of all my possible solutions. Do I run over to T-mobile? Text Matt frantically seeing if he can fix it on his end? One thing came to mind before doing any of these things. Reboot .. let’s try to reboot. So, that is what I did. It felt like forever for the phone to restart. Once it did, can you guess what pops up? A VOICEMAIL! A voicemail from 12:50 pm!!! I could not believe it. At this point it was 3:30 and I had been agonizing all day for a call that was made hours earlier.
What did it say? I will let the videos below speak for themselves.
[Watch the video above to hear the voicemail and my personal reaction!]
This journey with you has brought out more positive energy than I had ever imagined possible. I am inspired by all the love and support that has come out as a result of sharing my struggles and journey. I have decided to continue to dedicate my time to empower and support women going through their own journeys as they try to conceive.
This is not goodbye. This is only the beginning. I know great things are yet to come. Plus this is very early on in the pregnancy, we will continue to keep our fingers crossed during this first trimester!
Thank you so much for everything.
