I took a pregnancy test back at the end of March and it was negative.
But I had a feeling. I just knew there was something different going on with my body. Is that possible? To have pregnancy symptoms before the test is positive?
For the last week, my eye had been twitching and I was way more tired than usual. And my emotions? Oh, gosh. Don't even get me started on the mood swings over the last week.
So, after almost a month of feeling this way, I took another one. Tonight's test was positive.
But really, we knew that we did want a third child and had been talking about it quite a bit. There were certain things I wanted to have in place beforehand, but those don't really matter now.
I'm a little bit afraid. I've had a lot of shoulder pain and have been taking prescription pain medication manage it. I've also been drinking buckets of caffeine and aspartame. One of the first things I did after seeing the "pregnant" pop up on the test was pray that God would protect this baby from those things. And make it another boy.
Just kidding. Kind of.
