Not only did I get engaged on Saturday but I got the surprise of my life and most shocking news I have ever recieved this weekend!
Heres the story of how I found out I am pregnant just hours before he proposed! Kind of TMI.
Lets starts with Friday, a couple of weeks ago, I went to the doctor to get switched to a different type of birth control. I had been on the pill for about 5 years and I was beginning to get to where I was forgetting to take it, hence the reason I went to my gyno for a “less resonsible” method. She intoduced me to the NuvaRing. As with most birth control, the doctors advise you to wait around 2/3 weeks before having unprotected sex. I had always been told that by other doctors. I asked her if I needed to do that and she said no. Since I have currently been on birth control, switching methods should be okay. Key word, should. So of course I’m going to listen to my doctor. She told me to come back about a week and a half later for a check up and to see how I’m doing with the NuvaRing, which leads us to May 9th. My doctors visit. During between then and Friday. It was hard getting used to the NuvaRing. More mentally hard than anything. I kept on waking up at night thinking that I skipped my pill and things like that. I kept on searching in my purse for my pill pack and of course it wasnt there. So on Friday, I was talking to her about how hard it is to adjust to not taking pills and she suggested that I take it out and go back to the pill. I thought about it and decided that I would continue on with the NuvaRing BUT I had one question. Why hadnt I had my period yet? I was supposed to start my period the week before on the 7th but it hadnt came and I thought it was because of the birth control. So she told me some of the reasons why my period hadnt came yet, asked me if I had been sexually active since I have had the NuvaRing (yes) so she decided to give me a pregnancy test “just in case”. Well the test came back positive! A whirl wind of emotional just came pouring through me! I asked her HOW!?!?!? and she said that since I was switching methods, my birth control could have been not as effective….that upset me just a lot because I asked her if it would be okay and she said I should which made me assume that I wouldnt get pregnant. My SO and I dont know what to think really, we were trying to be responsible hence the birth control, we didnt plan on having any children till after we were married. My SO and I are both shocked and scared and happy all at the same time. We have to admit, we are completely unprepaired but if this is the path God wants us to take then we will follow. My first ultrasound is June 14th and my due date is 01/12/15
As for the proposal! All day Saturday, both my SO and I were running around like a chicken with its head cut off. We were going here, there and everywhere. Everyone wanted to see my SO before he had to be at the graduation ceremony. Within that time, when it was just us two, sitting in the car actually and that just happend to be the only time we were alone that day. He pulled out a box and opened it, said “will you marry me?”. I was grinning from ear to ear and so was he. And I said “of cours!”. I dont think he knew what to do after that because he just sat there and grinned at me and I said “well are you going to put it on my finger” and he said “only if you want to marry me” and I laughted and said “of course!” he slipped it on and away we went to his graduation ceremony!!! We went out to eat at my favorite place to eat celebrated our engagement, water with lemon for me of course, wine for him! The day couldnt have went any better!
Will post pictures later!
