Many people have asked, "Why is the world would you take 3 pregnancy tests?" Well, here is the story behind it all.
After finding out that Suzannah was pregnant, I went by her house to see how she was feeling. She was telling me about her symptoms and it sounded like how I was feeling. Josh and I had been trying for a while (8 months all together) and decided that this month I would not take a test until May 1st. Once I talked with Zan, I couldn't wait until then. That night I woke up around 2 A.M. I decided to take a test. I watch as the line appeared in the test window, but not the "pregnant" window, so I threw it in the trash and went back to bed.
The next morning, I got up and decided to look at the test again. Note: I had taken many tests prior this one and always checked it later to "make sure". All the tests prior still showed negative. Well when I checked this one it said positive. I read the directions again and it said "wait 3 minutes before reading results". I probably waited 10 seconds max before throwing it in the garbage when I took it at 2 A.M. Then I read "don't read after 10 minutes". Knowing I couldn't trust this test because I didn't follow the directions properly, I took the second one. This is where I made the decision to use the digital test. I had been wanting to use it for when I "knew" I was pregnant so I could see the actual word "Pregnant". Goofy I know. This test was the only one I had left. I took it and waited. The results were it....PREGNANT! I was thinking, "No way!" I looked at it again and began crying. I was so excited and couldn't believe it. I ran and woke up Josh to show him. He smiled and hugged me. I told him about the test I took in the early morning and told him that I was going to go by CVS to buy one more to make sure. I bought the test and took it at school. This time I watched as both lines appeared. I was ecstatic because I knew it was true. We had tried for so long and now it finally happened. We couldn't be any happier knowing that we are going to have a precious baby around Christmas. Please pray for that this child that I carry in my belly will be safe until delivery and that we would be parents that God wants us to be. Many more updates to come. :) This is my first picture at 6 weeks and 5 days.
