We are having a baby!


Corey and I have been married for three years.  I have been ready for kids almost that long.  Corey was not quite as eager; his plan was to wait until we had been married for five years.  I agreed to that before we got married, but a girl can change her mind.

In December, we BOTH decided we were ready to start trying, two years earlier than our original plan.  Five months later, we have a little miracle on the way!

My original plan was to not test this month unless there was some glaring sign that I should.  Then I decided that if I was pregnant, I wanted to know by Mother's Day.  OK, so I technically wouldn't be a mom yet, but I could still celebrate quietly, right? 

I took the first test the Friday before Mother's Day after I got home from work.  On that first test, the second line was so faint, I was almost convinced I was seeing things.  Maybe I was just seeing what I wanted to see.

I took another test on Saturday, the second line was a little darker, but I still wasn't convinced.

I tested again on Sunday because who knows?  Those first two may have lied.  That one convinced me.  It was definitely positive.  I was so excited when I clearly saw that second line pop up immediately!  It took everything I had not to run back to the bed and yell "I'M PREGNANT" at Corey, but I don't think he would have appreciated that at 6:00 in the morning.  I did tell Corey the good news that morning before church, but I'll share that story later. 

As long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a mom more than anything else.  I am thrilled beyond words that in less than nine months, motherhood will be my reality!
