There was a post on my old birth board today that actually made me smile. I don’t know why I go to the July board, but I can’t help it. Today they had a post titled “How did you tell your SO that you were pregnant.” It made me think about how I told Misha back in October. I don’t think I’ve posted about it yet.
Last October 28th was a crazy day. I had stayed up almost the entire night writing a paper for my comparative revolutions course and was exhausted. I was supposed to meet the president of PAT to work on our flier at 5pm but he was late as usual. I had to leave about 20 minutes after he got there and went home. Misha was in LA so I was on my own for the night.
When I got home (around 6:30) I realized that I was due to start that day and decided to test. I was on the phone with Misha while I did the test and could not believe it when I saw the faint line. I was in total disbelief. It was really light so I drank a bunch of water and I did another test. There was another faint line but by then the line on the original test was a little darker.
I was so excited and so was Misha although he sounded like he was in shock. I hung up the phone and a little while later he called me back. He spent some time driving around just absorbing everything and was really excited. We were so happy and hopeful and even though it ended 6 weeks later with a miscarriage, it’s still a nice memory to have. With the way Misha is traveling right now I may have to tell him through text message next time!
