the test

TYLER!!!!!!!!!! I'M PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!
That is what my deep sleeping husband woke up to 
on Thursday, January 17th at 4:30 am.
He jumped straight out of bed and started running around like the house was on fire...
Shaking uncontrollably,
I showed him tried to show him the test...
and for the next 3 hours
(until we both had to start getting ready for work and school)
we hugged,
we cried,
we laughed,
we goofy grinned,
we said (repeatedly) "no way..."
and we sat on the bed and stared at the little white stick that said "pregnant."
 I have no clue what made me take the test.
I avoided pregnancy tests like the plague...
because they always made me sad.
But I guess after getting up to pee for the 12 millionth time,
I remembered there was one lonely, dust covered test under the sink....
and thought, why not?
I've never been so surprised in my entire life.
On my way to school that morning,
I convinced myself that the test had malfunctioned.
That the "not" part was broken.
So I stopped at Walmart and bought 2 more.
I took one in the Walmart bathroom...classy, I know.
 it turned immediately...and I screamed so loud that a cashier came in and asked if I was ok.
Then I took one in my school's bathroom
and it turned just as fast.
The next day I made an appointment for a blood test...
holy dark red line!
Then I knew.
Then I believed.
We're really having a baby.
My mind is blown.
I had tests that showed I had no eggs...
and that my ovaries were dead.
I am so overwhelmed by how incredible God is.
If you are struggling with infertility,
don't ever lose hope or your faith.
I was told that this was impossible...
but it sure doesn't look impossible to me.

I LOVE IT!! I took a super cheap one during my lunch break one day without really have a reason to. It turned SUPER fast, but since it cost like fifty cents, I didn't believe it either. I rushed to Target after work, bought a digital one and took it in the Target bathroom. :)

Still super excited for you!

This gives me hope. My sweet husband had cancer when he was 12. We were told in August of 2011 that it is impossible for us to have children of our own, I am heart broken. :'( I wrote about it on my blog if you would like to read our story. Love you friend. I pray this moment happens for us.
