two pink lines

I found out I was pregnant on July 3. It was one of the coolest days of my life.

Well, Wednesday came along, and nothing to prove me otherwise.

Then Thursday, then Friday, then Saturday. And I finally gave in to the crazy urge to buy a few tests. I made a trip to Walgreens and brought the box home. Adam was out of town.

I peed, and there they were: the two pink lines.

I knelt by my bed, EPT stick in hand, and prayed. Thank you, God, for this.

I drank a bunch of iced tea and took a second test about two hours later. Again, two pink lines.
I cried. Jumped up and down. Prayed again. And then I called my friend Kathryn to tell her the news.

I had to tell someone! My husband was out of town, not due back until late that night!

  1. i just cried after reading this post. So sweet! I too found out in a retailer's restroom that I was pregnant. But alas mine was an HEB. :) I wonder how many women find out they're preggo in the bathroom of the store in which they just purchased the test?
