I look back to one year ago today, I had no idea how my life would change in so many ways! My parents adopted 3 kids. Not saying that it was such a good thing because it brought a lot of stress! The agency lied about them and it's scary how two of them behave...very scary! I'm in college and since last year I have made dean's list twice. When I least expected it I met the love of my life! We fell madly in love with each other. We found out that I was pregnant last week. I had no signs or symptoms and I thought I was just so stressed I wasn't getting my period for quite a while. It hit me all at once. I felt like I was just getting fat. My boyfriend mentioned it to me and I made an appointment. It was terrifying since we have no home.
My doctor came back and said it was positive. I knew my life was going to change forever! So far we made a list of everything we need to do. I start back up to college in about 2.5 weeks. I start my new job Monday. Since we are in our early 20s and in college we need help. We just need assistance temporarily, just until we finish and we get good jobs which will be less than 2 years. In a year on top of the two deans list and finding my perfect match I ended up getting pregnant, preparing for a baby, getting a new job, getting a newer car, finding a home, and having a baby and graduating college. My life became so hectic, and our baby isn't even here yet.
The Scariest part? Telling the parents. So, my boyfriend ended up breaking down because he missed me after I left. The day we found out I made a dinner the night before for a special day. He cried because I left before we ate because I had to go unfortunately. All these emotions hit him at once and he broke down to his mom and dad that I'm pregnant. I had to tell someone. His sister knew but no one else, besides a friend of ours. I texted my sister in law who lives states away from me. I told her and she told me that we had to sit down with my brother first who lives here (different brother) and so I was scared. I went over and told him...well I sat there and didn't tell them because I couldn't come up with the words. Emotions hit me when his wife said we know. I cried and she hugged me and told me it was okay and my brother was very supportive as well.
My boyfriend came over to his house to have a talk and we went to my house. I got my parents outside and we told them. I felt so unbelievably uncomfortable. I lost all words. My boyfriend ended up telling them. I didn't expect myself to freeze up. They didn't scream or yell or really anything I expected. They weren't angry, but they weren't happy either. This morning was the hardest because I didn't know what to expect. My parents adopted 3 little kids and none of them said a word to me. Only my little brother who is biological. The one who is really out there I think was just confused. She's 16. She doesn't know where babies come from. Recently she thought men can have periods too and can have babies. Also thought that potatoes can have mini potatoes growing inside of it and give birth to mini potatoes...I know crazy! I feel very awkward. In a few days once everything starts lining up better it'll get easier. It's rough telling parents. Especially, when they are always proud of you.
Life will be crazy. I'm scared, but once more and more things are done, life will be a little more relaxing than they are now. With trying to find a car, trying to find a home, and starting a job and trying to find a job for your man and everything can be so stressful. I try not to stress so much. He's going to be the most amazing daddy in the world. He's such a great person and he is so loving and caring, I've never met a man like him before. I mean my dad is an amazing dad, but I look at it differently because my boyfriend is my kid's father. We are both so excited to be parents, but once we get on a role with things we will be even more excited and not so stressed.
How do we do all this in a short period of time? I'm not so sure. Any ideas? Plus any boy and girl name suggestions? Thanks!
