Seeing Two Pink Lines is Priceless

I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for First Response. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I remember seeing these two pinks lines like it was yesterday. It was very early in the morning, around 4 a.m. or so. I wasn't due for my period for a few more days, but I wanted to test because I just had that feeling. I wanted to wait until the morning because HTC levels are suppose to be highest then. Although I normally consider 4 a.m. night time, I was awake and excited and wanted to test. Almost immediately both lines turned pink. I decided to take the other test to make sure and both lines turned pink just as quickly. I was ecstatic. I couldn't hold it in. I tried to go lay down, but I had to tell someone. So I poked my husband until he asked, "Is something wrong?" And I said, "No, I'm just pregnant." "What?!" Neither of us could sleep, we were too excited! Our second baby was on the way.

Pregnancy Problems That No One Talks About

I'm going to tell you a story that not many people know about. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I was a nanny and use to take them regularly to this bounce house place. It was a little bit of a drive from their house, but totally worth it because the kids loved it. One day, my friend had invited us to come jump and I noticed that the girl I was watching had a dirty diaper. No big deal, they had awesome family restrooms. My friend watched the little boy I cared for while I went and changed the diaper.

The diaper was a bad one. So bad, I couldn't stand the smell and started getting sick. Actually, this was normal for me. I had terrible morning sickness with my first pregnancy, the difference this time.
