The fates have smiled upon me

There's really no other way to say this so I'll just get it over with...


I took a HPT on Friday, January 28, 2005 and after a few very tense minutes, a beautiful, long anticipated and very faint second line appeared! I was in absolute shocked bliss! It was like winning the lottery. I had to check the "winning ticket" over and over to make sure I read it correctly. I finally decided that I had a winner and burst into tears. I repeated over and over,
"Thank you, God! Thank you, God!" I absolutely balled. I couldn't hold it in. I had groceries in the car, Emma in her crate and I could barely stand because I was completely overwhelmed with emotion.

I told Rob that night when he got home from work. I had quickly run to Target to get him a baby frame and a bib that read, "I love Daddy." I put the pregnancy test strip in the frame and put it in the envelope that the tests came in. He looked at it and put it down to read the card. Then he did a triple-take and realized what he was looking at. He dropped the frame like it was a hot potato, and looked at me and said, "Oh my god! For real!?" I hugged him and told him he was going to be a daddy. We both cried and hugged. It was a beautiful moment.
