One year ago today, I woke up, took a pregnancy test, and was surprised when the result was positive.
You see, I had taken a couple of tests in the days prior, all of which were negative. Yet my period had still not come, so I ditched the Dollar Tree tests and instead opted to take a "real" one--a First Response Early Response.
I nervously prepared the test, then stepped out into the hallway to wait the few minutes with Michael. When the time was up, I approached the bathroom sink, heart pounding in my chest. I looked and... it was positive. Very positive, in fact. There was no mistaking that second line.
We laughed and cried.
Those two little lines represented a baby inside of me that was then the size of a poppyseed.
Now, that poppyseed is beautiful baby Nora.
January 12, 2010 was one of the best days of my life.
January 12, 2011 is even better--because she's here.
