One Year Ago...

One year ago, we found out I was pregnant.  We were overjoyed!  
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!
