Flip, Turned, and Upside DownIt was a cold November afternoon, the kind of weather that makes you want to curl p next to the one you love and watch a nice romantic movie and spend the whole rest of the day and night in bed together.Those are the moments that changed my whole life. I never thought my whole world could be flip, turned, upside down, in just a quick moment but it was.So there I found myself three days later in the bathroom throwing up, could it be the flu? Maybe! Or could it be, no impossible. I was wrong very wrong. Three weeks later I was still questioning, trying not to believe reality, arguing with my body telling myself that something like this could not be happening inside of me. When I knew deep down inside that I was pregnant three weeks to be precise. I gave in and bought a pregnancy test. That was the longest seven minutes of my life. I don't think I have ever been so scared. I brought myself together and looked at the test, it read positive. The words that were going through my head were was I so stupid, I ruined my life, how an I supposed to explain this to my parents, will they except the fact that I am pregnant, or will they hate me? God please help me.For the next few days I was trying to figure out how to tell my boyfriend that he was going to be a father, and what was he going to say, and think about all of this. Finally I told him I said, "Michael I don't know how to tell you this but here it goes, you are going to be a daddy". He just stood there with a surprised look on his face, and then started crying, hugging me telling me that everything was going to be okay. The total opposite of what I expected. After he settled down he told me that we were forever, and that he was behind me one hundred percent. That made me feel better, but I was still not satisfied, I wanted more. A week later while we were on the phone we got into an argument, I told him that I was not happy with the life that he was leading, but I couldn't change him, that he had to change on his own. I pretty much told him to shape up or get out. He must of thought I wasn't serious because a month later I broke it off. Obviously he did not like that because within two months he was already dating someone new. I asked him if he was trying to make me jealous, because it was not working that he could have done better than that loser. I also told him that he couldn't get anyone better because he was just as big of a loser as she was so they fit perfectly together. That really pissed him off, but it made me feel a whole lot better. I guess you don't realize what an idiot you're dating until you get pregnant or is that only in my case.In early January I had decided I was going to tell my family. To my misfortune I didn't have to actually tell them. Instead my boss at the nursing home I was working at called my house and told my mom that I needed a doctors' note to return to work. My mom asked her why but she told her to just have me call her when I got home...
