Day 4: Unexpected Gift

Day 4 of the: #You are enough 30 day blogging challenge

See, I knew it. I thought, just as I suspected another phantom preg – wait did she just say – pregnant? I’m pregnant! whooopie!

I have been so busy lately I totally have not been following this challenge to the letter. But I am committed to completing it so here goes.

For day 4, a time I received good news that altered my life occurred during 2013. I was still in the honey moon stage of my new marriage. It had been 8 years after the death of my son, I’d tried, unsuccessfully to conceive for years, since getting married I had resigned to the fact that it just was not going to happen for me.

One fine July morning I had this inkling that I may be pregnant. I pushed the thought out of my min. I’d had that feeling before, coupled with all the symptoms; nausea, tender breasts, even a late cycle; leading me to joyfully take a test only for the 3 minute wait to end with one blue line, rendering my feelings crushed. Believe me, Phantom pregnancies are a real thing!

I waited a few days then I decided to go to the doctor. I had no symptoms but I just knew something felt different. I remember sitting in the waiting room, toddlers running around with their mothers at their tail looking frazzled and slightly embarrassed by the quiet annoyance of their waiting room peers. After the first wait came the second, sitting in the doctors room waiting for the 3 minutes to be up and the lines to appear on the stick. With each minute I would feel jubilation beginning to rise within me, just as quickly I would push it back down. The voice in my head reciting the mantra, “you will not get your hopes up!’

“Well, I’m happy to say you are pregnant’ the doctor said.

See, I knew it. I thought, just as I suspected another phantom preg – wait did she just say – pregnant? I’m pregnant! whooopie! I screamed from the inside, on the outside I was beaming – Finally Allah had granted me another chance at motherhood!

Day 4: . Share a time that you received life altering news, good or bad, and how it impacted your life.
