February 9th...That was the day we found out that our life was about to change forever...for it was the day that we found out our little family of 2 was about to become a family of 3! February 9th, 2012 goes down as one of the best days of my life. I couldn't believe my eyes that morning. The tests were always negative. I just knew this test was broken or wrong or I was imagining things. I must have walked in and out of the bathroom 10 times before I finally realized it was true. It couldn't be though? Or could it? We have been trying to have a baby for so long that it just didn't seem right for the test to not be negative. Wow! I remember saying the words, "Thank you God," over and over and over and over. Then I called my husband, cause we are doing the whole long distance thing right now, I told him to look at his phone because I had sent him a picture. So romantic, huh? I had always thought I would tell him that we were having a baby by doing something special, but after what seems like forever of waiting and waiting, I just couldn't wait any longer. I had to tell him! He looks at the picture of the positive pregnancy test, asks me what it means, and what do I say? I say, "I don't know" as I am crying my eyes out. "I don't know," haha, it's not like I am a doctor or anything. We talked for a bit, but I really can't remember our conversation. It's such a daze now. I just couldn't believe it. I was in shock. I just sat there and cried and cried and must have thanked God a bizzillion times. I remember praying for all those still out there struggling to have a baby. I prayed (and I still do) for those going through similar things we have and just praying so hard for comfort and strength for them. I don't think there is a moment that goes by that I don't continually pray to God that everything will be ok with this baby. I am scared. Terrified. Shocked! Once you have been down a path similar to ours, which I may blog about one of these days...I think it comes with the territory. And it's in my blood to worry, thank you mother. Its what us "Mayes'" do.
All that being said, I am so extremely excited and feel so incredibly blessed, I can't even begin to explain it. It's been quite the journey for us, and it's all making sense now. The good Lord sure has such an amazing plan laid out for us. Once I realized I can't do anything without Him, things just fell into place. You have to have faith, for without it, you truly have nothing. God has blessed us so so so much and there is not a day that goes by that I don't thank Him.
Andrew & I have such an amazing support system. We can't thank those of you enough who have been praying for us, supporting us, encouraging us, and just simply being there for us. We are so very blessed to have a group of people, who love us so much, in our life and we thank you from the bottom of our heart for being there for us every step of the way.
