I believe a new hashtag has been created. #TB1Y = Throw Back One Year!
What did you do on February 22, 2014? Typically I wouldn’t remember what I did a year ago, unless it was a memorable day. A year ago today was a Saturday. I remember it was a particularly warm day for February in Atlanta, so we jumped on the opportunity to go for a run outside. When we got back from the run it was time to get ready for dinner with our friends. I do not remember what inspired me to do this, but before I got ready I decided to take a pregnancy test and….
IT WAS POSITIVE!
Soooo many emotions immediately poured through my head. Feelings of excitement, nervousness, and the unknown were present. The last pregnancy test I had taken was approximately 4 months prior, when I experienced a very early miscarriage. During this first pregnancy I actually had signs of the miscarriage before I knew of the pregnancy. While the first pregnancy was devastating, there were a few positive outcomes. One was that my body was able to conceive a child. On February 22, 2014 I had no signs of a miscarriage.
A few hours after the positive pregnancy test we met another couple for dinner at a quick casual Italian restaurant. At this point the excitement was starting to take over. The entire time we sat there at dinner I kept thinking about what was going on inside me – I was pregnant. A few weeks later we found out the other couple was also pregnant and due a few weeks ahead of us. Ironically, we both sat there at dinner that evening holding in a life changing secret.
Here we are year later with our 4 month old son. This milk lovin’ child has changed our lives forever. We are so full of love for him. So thankful.
