2 Weeks Later

We went in for a pregnancy test. I had to have a blood test, because the ones you do at home might not be accurate since some of the shots could still be in my system. They would know the results in 1 hour. I asked them not to call me with the results, but instead call Nick. We had been through so many disappointments that I thought if we got bad news, I'd need support and thought it would be best if I heard it from him. He had gone to the gym and I was expecting (even if he heard from the doctor) that he was going to come home and tell me the results in person. I was sitting outside when my phone rang. It was Nick. He said, "Are you ready to be a mom?" I was thinking, what kind of question is that? Of course I want to be a mom! We had been praying for a baby for 2 plus years. So I answered, "Well yea!" Then the news I had been longing to hear - "Well you're going to be a mom!" I could hardly believe my ears. I was saying, "Really? Really!" As soon as I hung up I was overwhelmed. With tears of joy in my eye, I started yelling out loud, "Thank you God!" I thought afterwards, if someone was outside they probably heard me and thought I was a crazy woman. But I'm going to be a mom... wow!!!

So if you're experiencing infertility right now, just know you are not alone. While many of us don't openly talk about it, I assure you, 1 in 10 women have experienced some sort of problem getting pregnant. Know there are always options. And keep your faith. I know it's not easy, but know that all this trouble will someday make the outcome that much sweeter. I've found I appreciate every moment of pregnancy, even the moments that I had to eat saltine crackers just to keep from feeling sick. Looking back, I wouldn't change a thing.
