One Year Ago Today...

....I saw this. I wasn't really surprised. In my mind I knew we were pregnant, but I was trying not to psyche myself out. We had just gotten back from our totally insane family trip to Georgia. In Georgia I had noticed I was having horrible stomach problems (my first early pregnancy sign with Beanie) and I was uber emotional (and not just because I was stuck in a house with my crazy mother-in-law for three days). When we flew home I was feeling nauseous on the flight. I attributed it to turbulence, but when we got home I was still feeling "off." I told Glenn that either my little nephew got me sick or we were pregnant. I refused to test until cd (cycle day for you non ttc-ers) 28 since I had gotten a BFN (big fat negative) with Beanie on cd 28.

So, on the morning of July 24, 2009, I woke up, took out the pregnancy test and went pee. I saw the very faint line immediately. I texted a pic to Glenn, but (of course) the quality wasn't great and he could hardly tell. I could though. Still, I made him buy a digital test on the way home. It said "YES+" (why couldn't he have bought one that said "PREGNANT" in blaring big letters???).

Today, one year later, my son brings me so much joy. He makes me laugh, smile, and beam with joy every day. He's the perfect addition to our little family. We're complete now (much to my father's chagrin we are d-o-n-e done now, although he keeps bringing up how we should have more babies --ugh!!).

So, one year ago I got to see some little lines on a pee stick. Today I get to look at this guy...

How lucky am I?

  1. Awww and I knew as soon as you called and said "Guess What?" that you were preggers and I was going to be an auntie again! Lexi may not have a little sister to be her best friend, but she has an awesome little brother that will grow up to look out for her and be her protector!

  2. Awe! Isn't it great to look back on those wonderful moments in life!!!
