Monday and Tuesday I felt really down. I kept trying to convince myself that this didn't work. I was thinking I wouldn't be as disappointed if I expected a negative. Something great happened Wednesday. I don't know what it was, but this amazing sense of calm came over me and I was in a great mood all day. Tom was doing more homework that evening, so I ran to the store to pick up some tests. I had this extreme urge to test. I didn't want to wait until the morning. I didn't even want to wait until I got home. I was this close to testing in the Target bathroom. I rushed home and showed Tom the digital box, telling him I would wait until Friday. He told me not to test until then. My sneaky butt had the First Response ones hidden in my purse and took a little trip to the bathroom. I peed and tried hard not to look at the results. I lasted probably a minute and then saw that second line. I couldn't believe it! I rushed to Tom and said, "I cheated, but its good." He turned around and my shaky hands gave him the test. I kept saying, "There are two lines, right? There are two lines!" He happily agreed. We kissed and hugged and stood in shock. I wanted to see the word Pregnant, so I went back to the bathroom and used the Clearblue. Tick, tock, tick, tock..Pregnant. Holy cow, is this really happening?
Two pink lines..FINALLY!
I can not believe I didn't cry for hours. I was and still am running on pure adrenaline. We are in absolute shock. I can't thank all of you enough for your prayers over the past few months. I know they helped guide our journey to parenthood.
I called my nurse Thursday to see if I could get my blood work appointment moved to Friday. She congratulated me on the positive test and said sure. I couldn't wait to get the really proof I was expecting.
Tom went with me in the morning. For the first time, I was happy to be sitting in that office. We were in and out in ten minutes and got the call a few hours later. I am indeed pregnant! My level was 86 at 8 days post. I will go in Monday and Wednesday to make sure the numbers are rising correctly. Then, we will talk ultrasounds.
I have tons and tons of more to update on. I have been super busy the past few days. Tom went to show our house to a few families and will be gone until tomorrow. I'll be sure to find some time tonight or tomorrow morning to get this blog up to date.
Peanut(s)-You did it! We are SO proud of you. Now, Mama will do her part and take the best care of you. You are loved by so many already. You are an absolute miracle and we will never forget that.
