A year ago

Exactly one year ago at this exact time (6:55 am), I got up and drove to CVS to buy a pregnancy test.  I'd been home from yearbook camp less than 12 hours and was convinced that I wasn't pregnant, but I couldn't shake the nagging feeling that something was going on.  I couldn't sleep and tossed and turned all night thinking about the possibilities. 

The test was really just suppose to confirm what the doctor's had said that pregnancy wasn't going to occur naturally.  Instead, when I looked at the stick as it sat on the drywall dusted ladder in the unfinished master bedroom, I saw a VERY clear + sign.  The gittery feeling of complete and total disbelief is still very clear in my mind.  I also find it kind of funny that I didn't pee on another stick (like I now know a bunch of people do), but instead I called Kaiser immediatly to get it confirmed by the doctor (the top square test). 

It is amazing that July 30th last year Andrew was the size of a lima bean and on July 30th this year he is a little boy full of smiles and personality. A miracle created by a loving God!


  1. Jennifer - a wonderful true story! It makes me cry to think that getting pregnant happened so quickly for you and you didn't have to go through months of trying. Praise God for our miracle baby Andrew...he is adorable, has such a cute personality and is a joy to take care of. Love to all.. Grandma Lynette

  2. I love that you took a picture of the stick, because I did too... i actually still have both of them... b/c yes, i took 2 in disbelief! ahhaa. I don't have them both b/c i'm purposefully saving them btw, i just tend to never throw things away, and they collect around the house... bad habit! ahahah!
