I don’t know why, but I was feeling nostalgic today. This blog has been one documenting my pregnancy with my, now 6 month old, son. What most people don’t know, is that I kept a private blog, documenting my journey through infertility and finally a pregnancy that stuck. I think I’m going to start sharing some of those.
That blog kept me sane, helped me sort out my feelings and move forward despite the heart ache. So today, I’m sharing one I called “Hope”. I wrote it the day I found out I was pregnant with my Hannah.
I have hope today. This month, I believe I ovulated early. Fortunately, much like the mean signs of Aunt Flo’s arrival, I’m very familiar with the friendly signs of “Olivia”. I caught it. And this morning, I took a positive pregnancy test.
I’m trying to stay calm. We’re keeping it to ourselves, and I have an appointment for my first blood draw at 1:45 p.m. I need this draw and the next one to show positive growth, and then I’ll get put on Lovenox.
I pray with all of my heart that God keeps this life/lives healthy and safe.
We’ll see what happens next, but for now, I have hope.”
