I found out I was pregnant around Mother’s Day two years ago. Exactly on May 18, 2015! I felt completely blessed and overwhelmed with joy. I wasn’t expecting it so soon. My husband and I had talked about starting a family as soon as soon as I turned 30. We got pregnant within the month! I was unbelievably excited. I wanted to surprise my husband so I decided to wait for the right time to tell him. I can’t believe I kept it a secret for a whole week!
I love Italian food so I made a reservation to eat there as a celebrating for my husband finishing his semester at college. Little did he know that I was going to surprise him. My husband’s favorite dessert is cheesecake. I had arranged with the restaurant to bring us a cheesecake after our meal and write the words, “We’re Having A Baby!” Sure enough after we were done with our meal, the waiter brought our dessert. My husband was excited about the cheesecake that he completely missed the writing on the plate. I asked him if he could what was written on the plate. He took a second glance and then quickly looked at me with a surprised expression. We just started smiling and laughing. I could see that he was starting to tear up but restrained himself. I was such a great moment that I will always cherish.
I also gave him a card that read, “Soul Mates: When Two Hearts Beat As One”. This could not have been more perfect as it highlighted how a little bit of me and a little bit of him, made us into a family of three. As my daughter is growing up too fast, the baby fever is real and I can’t wait to experience this again. It was just a moment that we will remember fondly.
