I exited the bathroom and hastened to the room. I felt weird carrying a cup of pee around. I opened the door, shutting it immediately behind me. Dr Joanie smiled when she saw me and took the cup from me.
"I'll be back with your results" she said adding a warm smile.
I took a seat on the examining table and watched as she left the room. Not thinking to take my butterflies and anticipation with her.
I started to fumble with my fingers trying to figure out how I would last two whole minutes waiting on a pregnancy test to return. If she returned with a yes, I'd kick myself in the face for doing all that crazy crap to my body and if she returned with a no, then i'd have to kick Dr Devy in the face for not figuring out what the hell was wrong with me.
"When you're all by yourself baby, i got you. When you need someone call baby, i got you" Nikki Flores sang. Jazzy and I both jumped and gasped at the same time then looked over at each other. Eyes wide. She sent me a mind message: Is that who I think it is? I nodded my head and she pulled my phone out of my pants pocket. I gripped it in my hand and my thumbs began to dance as I pondered what lie I would have to tell him, to get him to call back later without him getting upset. I clicked Answer and then put the phone to my ear.
"Hey" I said trying to sound cheerful.
"Hey babygirl, wassup?" he asked.
"Nothin' much about to get ready for the show" I lied.
"Dope" he replied. "Oh tell Princeton to hit me up later"
"Yeah hold on" I said.
I looked over at Jazzy and her face was bewildered.
"Princeton hit Diggy up in a few" I said to her.
She scrunched up her face and I put a finger on my lips signaling her to hush.
"What're you doing?" I asked him.
"Chillin' with Roger and Spin on the Bus. We 'bout to enter Kisseme, Florida" he answered.
"Cool, what game are you playing?" I asked.
"Spades and Spin is cheating" he replied laughing.
I listened to Spin and Diggy argue for a second when Dr Joanie returned with the test. My heart sped up as I tried to read her smile. She nodded her head at me and my jaw dropped. My breathing became hard and my eyes grew wide.
"Uhh Diggy lemme call you back. Bye" I said.
I hung up before he could reply and looked at Dr Joanie one more time.
"I'm pregnant?" I asked with a smile slowly spreading across my face.
"Yes Imani, you are" she answered smiling wider.
Jazzy and I looked at each other and I touched my tummy. A baby's actually in there. My baby. Me and Diggy's child. My chest began to move up and down as my mouth remained agape. I mouthed the words again trying to grasp the realization of it all. I was pregnant with Diggy's baby. Tears welled up in my eyes and I began to do what Oprah calls the 'Ugly Cry'.
"I'm pregnant" I repeated; voice in a cracking squeal.
Jazzy wrapped her arms around me and began to jump up and down.
"I know declare myself Auntie Jazz!!" she said placing her hands on her hips.
I laughed and we embraced once more, screaming and jumping around like idiots.
"Are you keeping him or her?" she asked.
"Yes, of course" I replied touching my belly.
"Imani as an OBGYN I must say right now, never ever push yourself like you did today. Ten minutes of Cardio is fine some weights, but don't push yourself. You can continue with your Tour and work, but at seven months it all stops. Understand?" she asked.
