3. WHAT WERE YOUR REACTIONS? We were excited, scared, happy, bewildered, scared, scared, and more scared!

4. HOW OLD WERE YOU? 19.

5. HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE PREGNANT? I am not sure why I took that pregnancy test. We were on birth control, but something just felt different. I hadn't even missed a period yet! I took the test and it was a positive (barely) so dumb me took another one :). It was a resounding positive. :)

10. WHAT DID YOU CRAVE? Chalk edit: Yes, I ate chalk :). I craved it. Not the chalk board chalk (that kind is icky) but the big thick airy sidewalk chalk. I used to sand down the edges so you couldn't see the teeth marks, so no one would know I took a bite out of it. I probably only ate one stick of chalk the whole pregnancy though, so no worries. It is a condition called pica...

I see... thanks for the edit! I guess i can tell you my cure for nausea. the smell of skunk. YUP! that was the only thing that would cure it. I would pray for roadkill on the way to work every morning. :)
