After a two month break, today is my return to blogging with a little announcement…WE ARE HAVING A BABY!!
How many times did it take before I believed it? Three pee sticks (including a frantic trip up to Walgreens to buy two different brands of pregnancy tests) and one trip to the doctor for the "official" blood test.
I took this one at 8am
I took this one at 1pm
I took this one at 5pm
After testing three times on Sunday and still not 100% convinced that this wasn't a cruel, I had a blood test done on Monday morning. I was sure I left them my cell # since I was going back to work and needed to know the results as soon as they were ready. Hours passed and still no phone call. By 3pm, I was calling the lab like a maniac only to have to leave messages for the nurse to call me back. By the time I left work, still no call. Did they forget to call me? Did I not give enough blood? Was it bad news and no one wanted to tell me?
Driving home that evening, I was upset that I didn't hear back from anyone. A bazillion things were going through my head. I soon pulled into the driveway and went into the house…and then I spotted it. THE RED LIGHT WAS BLINKING.
As I ran over and hit the play button, my heart was pounding. And then I heard the words I have waited years to hear…
Congratulations, you are pregnant!
As of today, I am in week #11. Thank you for all the support and well-wishes. Stay tuned for more more "pregnancy experiences." Oh, I've got some good ones too.
Thanks for reading,
