How My Life Changed When My Best Friend Got Pregnant

As best friends in high school, it was our plan to go to the same college together – and I was more excited than ever when our plan actually came true. But after spending every moment together during our Freshman year, everything suddenly changed when you told me you were pregnant…

You were my home away from home. You were my travel buddy and best friend in college. ??

Attending a college four hours away from home was hard for both myself and my parents, but having you by my side made the transition much easier.

We attended every school event together. ?

Every basketball game, soccer game, concert and event on campus – we were there. #Bobcats4Life ??

Every week, ate junk food and did our laundry together.??food-and-laundry

Late night In-n-Out trips, and air-drying our bras out on the street was always a fun adventure.

We were each other’s gym partners. ??

Our matching gym outfits were always on point. ???

Even though college could get stressful AF, we had each other for motivation – and that made everything bearable.

From piercings to hangovers, we endured the pain together. ??

All of that stopped when you told me you were pregnant.

Everything changed.

You moved out to with your parents again. I had to travel to Merced by myself and that was it. Nothing was the same.

I mean, what was I going to do?? You were my BEST FRIEND. I did eeeverythiiing with you. ?

Honestly, you were my only close friend. I never bothered making new friends during my first year in college because I was so comfortable with just you.

But those mixed feelings changed once again when your precious little angel was born. ?

I remember I was out of town when he was born, but meeting Damian was the best part of going back home. ? I couldn’t have arrived to a more precious, beautiful, sweet and adorable little baby.

Although our spontaneous food runs came to an end, we have memories to look back at. ?

From going out to get belly piercings, to going out to buy diapers, everything changed. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

You didn’t walk that stage with me, but you met me at the end with this cutie. ✨?

After you withdrew from UC Merced, I forced myself to branch out. I told myself to be less shy and take more chances. I joined organizations on campus and became much closer to my housemates. It was so difficult for Chely, for you and for me, but we both grew and flourished in different ways.

Now you’re killing it more than ever as a mom, a student, and an employee. Can’t wait to be there at your graduation.

LOVE YOU AND DAMIAN SO MUCH. ❤️ #BFF’s4LIFE
