5. How old were you? 23
6. How did you find out you were pregnant? I was at the pharmacy buying my birth control when I mentioned to the pharmacist that I was late and didn’t know when to start my next pill. He said he could do a pregnancy test for free, so I said alright. Ryan came in a few minutes later wondering what was taking so long and as soon as he got there the pharmacist came out with the results and Ryan and I found out at the exact same time together! Thank goodness…to this day I still can’t imagine how I would have told Ryan. He looked VERY serious and I was crying….tears of joy and shock I think. Needless to say I had to get my money back from my BC lol.
7. Who did you tell first? Since Ryan already new, and my family was wondering what was taking so long (we were traveling with them) my parents and grandparents found out as we were walking to the car. They could see by our faces that something was up….next time around I think I will keep it a secret for a long, LONG time.
8. Did you want to find out the sex? Not at first. But I knew at the ultra sound I was going to be tempted to ask so I told Ryan that I probably wouldn’t be able to hold the question back. Ryan just wanted to make sure that I wouldn’t be disappointed. I am soooooo glad I did and didn’t have any regrets.
9. Due date? April 5, 2002
10. Did you have morning sickness? Yes, It was so bad I had to be hospitalized because I was throwing up so much. I had to be on medication to help me to stop vomiting. I had to have that prescription renewed 3 times and was on it for almost the first 4-5 months.

13. What was your child’s sex? Male
14. Did you wish for to have the opposite sex of what you were having? Yes. Because of having 2 younger sisters I REALLY wanted a girl, I was sad when I found out, but I think it was hormones because by the evening I was ecstatic. I can’t imagine loving a child any more than I do Jacob.

18. Did you have complications during your pregnancy? Besides morning sickness it was a very healthy pregnancy

They told me to come back to the hospital when my water broke. My water broke about three in the morning an we went to the hospital.
