For a couple days I had a really weird feeling and this little thought just overshadowing me that I just might be. Then, I was late ONE day and that little shadow turned into a very persistent shadow that I could not stop thinking about the entire day, until finally I took a test. It was positive, but I still wasn't convinced. So I got two more tests; Both positive. Part of me thought, "How are we going to provide for this baby? I'm in school and we don't make lots of money," but the rest of me was thinking, "Jacob and I love each other, and this baby is going to be so loved; we are so blessed with this baby." When I surprised Jacob with the news, he validated my feelings by showing me his excitement and reassuring me that everything would work out and I was lucky to have the support. I am scared, but excited. Worried but reassured at the same time.
