I decided I wouldn’t be the woman who takes 10 pregnancy tests before her period was due and I would wait to actually miss a period. I was so regular that if I was late it had to mean something.
At the end of March I had a feeling that it had worked. I had symptoms that were stronger than normal but I tried not to read into them too much. My period was late and on Easter morning, I took the test.
Instantly I saw two lines appear. Two lines = Pregnant. What happened to the 5 minutes the box said for the results to appear?!? I went into instant shock. We both wanted this but I wasn't sure if God had this in our plans. I stayed in the bathroom a while and whispered a few profanities. Matt was still asleep and I was praying he didn’t check on me so I could gather myself to break the news to him.
