Fast forward about an hour. I am standing in our bathroom waiting on the "results". This is the best part of it all - the waiting. In these two or three minutes you can dare to dream anything. You can dream those baby dreams. You can dream of the day that you hold that precious baby. You can dream of your belly growing. So many dreams. The minute you see the results either your dreams come true or you have some more waiting to do. I was sure we were going to have to continue to wait. So as I was casually grabbing the test to toss it in the trash I noticed something different. This time there were two lines, not just one. Could it be? Were we really pregnant? Travis insisted we invest a little more than a dollar to be certain. He ran out and bought a box with three tests. All positive. My mom didn't like any of the tests we used and insisted on the digital ones. So after many, many tests, it was confirmed. We were indeed pregnant! And I will confess that I proceeded to take a test each day for the next week just to be sure we were still pregnant.
Today was a day filled with so many emotions. I have a lot of these days. As I awoke this morning I remembered each and every minute from last year this time. We have come such a long, long way in just 365 days. Last March 22 we had no idea what we would encounter or what we would have to overcome. But we did it and we are now here. And we have the most precious baby girl and couldn't be happier.
A lot can happen in one year. A lot can change in one year. I am so thankful for happenings, and changes, but most of all I am so thankful I spent that dollar.
P.S. Just so there is no confusion, whatsoever, those tests are definitely from last year. I still have the pictures and the actual tests. Just want to make sure that is perfectly clear.
