3 year ago today

Three years ago today at 3 am I had to pee. So I took out the home pregnancy test and peed. I couldn't believe what I saw. The slightest second line appeared. I couldn't believe it. I never dreamed this would ever happen. I got out another test and again a small 2nd line appeared. I woke up Mark and said "do you see 2 lines?" He had no idea why I was asking or what it meant. I think he thought I finally lost my marbles.

I called my mom to tell her. I went to work and called the doctor's office. They sent me for bloodwork. I couldn't wait to get the results. The nurse called and said "congratulations, you are pregnant". When I got the bloodwork results, I called Mark and said "you are going to be a daddy!". Turns out he was at duncun donuts, so he told the cashier. Funny, she was the second to get the official word on our pregnancy.

I had to go back 48 hours for repeat bloodwork to make sure the numbers doubled. Well they tripled. I was thrilled.

This day three years ago, began an amazing journey that has forever changed me in ways I never would have thought possible. This began months or challenges and life altering choices and decisions which had to be made. My faith in God and the love of my family and friends sustained me through this time. I am eternally thankful to have such wonderful people in my life. Somehow I made all the right choices and the rest is history.

by the way, today is my mom's birthday!! I found out twins on my birthday! I'll report on that day in less than a month.

Wow, amazing..three years ago today!

It is so funny how we remember these details so vividly. The second person we told was a retail clerk at a clothing shop. I just couldn't keep it in :)

I will never forget the day we found out I was pregnant. I went to work and didn't tell anyone until a week later!

It's funny how I can remember dates like this with my twins but not my other kids. The momo journey is sure memorable, isn't it? :)

I remember my twins dates very well. It is the April Fools joke that CAME TRUE!
