Proof Positive

In the coming days I will update you on my pregnancy by sharing my journal entries from the past month.

Wednesday - April 8, 2009
Tonight I found out that I am pregnant!
We started praying about starting a family last month and God blessed us real quick. I bought a pregnancy test today at Walmart, while running errands. I had a weird feeling something was going on with me and needed to find out if it was a baby. I came home from work with a terrible head cold and was super tired. I was excited about my 4 pound weight loss that week and was determined to keep on losing for bathing suit weather. So much for carrying out that plan! I took the test after dinner. I was certain I was overreacting but took it anyway. It proved positive before I had time to pull it out from under me. No 3 minute wait time needed! I don’t think I even washed my hands before I bolted down the hallway, through the kitchen and through the den to Randall's garage. I held up the test, looked him straight in the eye and said, "I'M PREGNANT!" He had the calmest look of shock on his face, as he stared back at me. He then said," I'm not surprised, I'm good like that." 1 shot was all it took and he scored. He had right to be proud. I was. I began to cry as my mind filled itself with a million thoughts and fears. We both stayed pretty calm for the rest of the night, soaking up the reality of it all. We played Wii the rest of the night. I became a pro bowler and beat Randall pretty bad. It was a monumental night.
I am calling Dr. Curry's office tomorrow to make my 8 week appointment to confirm all of this and start the journey to parenthood. We have been married for 6 years and 2 months as of today, April 8, 2009. We have built a strong foundation for Baby L. Randall says he knows Baby L. is a boy because he only makes boys. We shall see about that!
