A picture that is truly worth a thousand words...
We are having a baby!!!
Baby H is due Jan 8th and we couldn't be more excited. Without giving you too many details, this is something we have been working on for months and months, so it had become quite regular practice to take a test and get a negative. I was so used to it in fact that the first time I got a faint line one evening I brushed it off and thought it was a fluke. Two days later I took another test during my lunch break just to be sure and got another faint second line. I immediately drove straight to CVS and bought several different types of tests, including the one that says YES or NO, just to remove any doubt. They were all positive, all 7 of them. By the time Michael got home from work the counter was covered in pregnancy tests. At this point I was still in disbelief, although it was clearly confirmed - 7 seven times - that I was indeed pregnant. Even at the first ultrasound I was apprehensive that the Doc would tell me I wasn't pregnant, but there on the screen was the heartbeat. It was official. There is a baby growing inside me! Whoa. It's amazing and exciting and scary and every emotion all rolled into one.
