I remember taking one of those cheap Dollar Store pregnancy tests expecting to see just one little lone blue line. The same lonely line that I had seen over and over in months past. Mentally, I had stopped trying to get pregnant- Emotionally, the waiting game had become too painful.
I took the test and saw the faintest little second line- my heart nearly burst through my chest.
Was I imagining it?
I slowly walked out to the living room where Aaron sat and said with a shaking voice,
“So, ummm, does this look like a second line to you?”
I was so scared my eyes were playing tricks on me I thought I was going to throw up.
A smile spread across his face from ear to ear even before he took a look.
Thankfully, he saw the line too
…but, it was so faint. Was I really pregnant?
My first thought was to call my mom, so that’s what I did.
(I may have also gone on google and typed in “faint line pregnant”)
My Mom said it sounded like I could be pregnant, but to be sure take another test the next morning.
After the longest night of my life, I had my proof in plain writing,
I was overjoyed.
Thank you Biology for giving me the baby of my dreams.
