my husband and i met while working together in epcot at disney world.
not going to lie, this pregnancy was NOT planned and came as kind of a shock to my husband and i. we were only dating at the time and being stupid and not using protection. we were instantly freaked out when two pink lines popped up on two pregnancy tests.
however, we soon calmed down and decided to keep our precious little mistake. it's not the baby's fault after all and we knew we could find a way to raise a child and were more than capable of doing so.
i wanted a girl (obviously). i've ALWAYS wanted my first-born to be a little girl. girls are precious and you get to dress them up in pink, lacey, ruffly things! i also want that bond i had with my mother before she passed away <3 and of course, my husband wanted a boy. oh well!
we found out at 15w3d that we were having a LUNA and not a LIAM. YAY!
we got married a month later and are now living in his home country of norway, aka "troll country"
i will be keeping my fingers crossed for a completely unmedicated water birth. i'll be using natural pain relief to avoid the risks of epidurals. I CAN DO IT!
