Out With A Bang

Well, we certainly finished our trip off with bang… at urgent care. Poor Sadie girl started acting strange on Wednesday and by that afternoon she was in a lot of pain.

She was showing symptoms of a urinary tract infection and we weren’t sure what to do. We knew we would be leaving to go home the next morning, so we decided to call her doctor and see what they suggested.

I typed up a few “diary entries” here on the blog once I found out we were expecting. I thought it would be neat to look back on how I felt in that moment. So, here’s the first in the series!

We were kind of getting to the point of wondering if it would ever happen, especially since it didn’t take as long to conceive Sadie.

I actually took the test at like 4:30 am in the Outer Banks before catching a flight home. I had picked up a Dollar Tree pregnancy test the day before on a whim. I definitely did not expect to see a super faint second line. I looked in the bathroom mirror and smiled so hard and prayed a huge thank you prayer to God.

I am feeling so many emotions! Gratitude, relief, joy, excitement, and nervousness. The nervousness is because we know what is ahead (babies are hard work!). At the same time, I’m glad we know what is ahead because we know the joy that is coming if God chooses to carry us through this pregnancy and give us a healthy baby. (more…)
