It was Friday, June 16, 2017, when my world was turned upside down. School had just ended and the weekend began, it was the weekend of the sound of music and I was planning to go to a friends party before Sound of Music to drink. As I was walking home it was blistering out so on my walk I stopped at the plaza and went into the pharmacy to get a drink. As I was grabbing my drink I saw pregnancy tests. I didn’t think I was pregnant but I was late which I didn’t think much of since it had happened many times before. I thought maybe I should just double check since I was planning on drinking that night. I had my drink so I could take the test when I got home.
I finally got home my and my dad was upstairs cleaning so I ran downstairs with the pregnancy test in my bag so he wouldn’t see it. I grabbed the tests went into the washroom and watched the test waiting for the results but as I said I really didn’t think I was pregnant so I wasn’t too worried.
How the test works are there are two boxes in the test one that shows a line in the one box that appears when the test is done correctly and a control box, if there was no line in the control box it was negative and a line was positive.
As I watched the control box I saw a pink line appear and get darker. My heart dropped. I grabbed the instructions to make sure a line in the control box really did mean pregnant and I wasn’t supposed to be seeing a plus. Nope, I was seeing correctly and I was pregnant. I was so shocked I started to shake I took the test and went into my room and sat in my bed in disbelief that there was a little baby growing in my belly. And that is where my story begins!
