I took this test the night before my doctor's appointment, but didn't tell Tim. I was excited to see "pregnant" but didn't want to get my hopes up. I had heard of "false positives" and wanted to have the blood work done to confirm it first. I was so nervous!
I went to the doctor the next morning at 8:15 a.m. and they took my blood. I came home and waited for the phone call......every time my phone rang I jumped in anticipation. Finally, around noon, my favorite nurse called. As soon as I answered the phone, she asked, "How do you feel?" I said, "Nervous....." and she said, "Well you should feel pregnant because you are!"
What an exciting day! Tim was coming home early that afternoon and I was trying to figure out how I could tell him. I couldn't wait though! I called him immediately and told him the good news. He came right home and we prayed a prayer of thanksgiving and gratitude for the gift of a child. (At this time we had no idea we would be having TWINS.....I'll post on that another day.)
I remember feeling excited and nervous at the same time. I had wanted to be pregnant for so long, yearned to be a mother and start our family, and it was finally happening.
So, here we are, one year later, with two beautiful blessings. Praise God for his faithfulness!
