“I broke out into a cold sweat and my heart was pounding out of my chest…”

“I found out that I was pregnant when I was almost through my first trimester.  Needless to say my husband and I were completely shocked.  I went to my ob alone because my husband was out of town.  I remember that day like it was yesterday, down to the outfit I wore.  It was my first time seeing this doctor so I had to take a pregnancy test.  After about 5 minutes two sweet cna’s came into the room I was waiting in and yelled “you’re pregnant!”  I broke out into a cold sweat and my heart was pounding out of my chest.  I must have turned white as a ghost.  I didn’t know if I should panic, be excited, or what.  I sent my husband a text, “we are pregnant”.  I had no idea how far along I could be, so the ob had to do an ultra sound that day to get an estimate on how far along I was.  My ob was convinced I could only be four to six weeks along…nope 11 weeks!  That even shocked my ob! After the initial shock of the pregnancy went away, I began my typical worrying.  I’ve always struggled with liking my body.  I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin.  I was scared how all the physical changes my body was about to go through would effect my self-esteem.”
