by december 22, 2009, i hadn't been feeling well for a few days. i tried to eat macaroni and cheese (my favorite) one day for lunch, and everything about it repulsed me--the smell, the taste, everything. i was slightly nauseous, tired, and overheated all the time. we finally, after several days of this, put 2 and 2 together and took a test. that second line was faint, but it was most certainly there:
i must have read the directions all the way through 4 or 5 times. we took 3 more tests, covering 2 different brands, until i was finally convinced. we hugged, we cried, and it the midst of it all travis was smart enough to grab a camera and snap this:
notice the shock on my face and the tears in my eyes, still holding the test.
we kept all 4 tests, though none are readable now. i just can't wait to meet our baby. august feels so far away.
