This time last year we had just returned from a vacation in NC and SC to visit Chris' parents after my sister's wedding in East Tennessee. A month before my sister's wedding I ordered a custom made dress that fit like a dream, to wear at her rehersal dinner. The night of rehersal dinner the dress was tight. That was odd.
While in NC visiting Chris' mom my stomach started hurting. Like lay in the driveway and moan hurt. Everyone told me I just had gas. I didn't think so. I started to doubt Chris' coffee making skills because every cup of coffee he brought me was pretty gross. I was tired but just thought that was the stress of visiting family and travelling with a two and half year old.
We got home on a Saturday morning and Chris went to work that night. Sunday morning when I woke up I took a pregnancy test. Oh my word! It was positive! I had just weaned Lorelei two months before! I called Chris sobbing, feeling so blessed and on cloud nine! I ran upstairs to tell my mom (they were still visiting) and I was crying and my hand was shaking so hard so she thought I was holding a thermometer and telling her I had a fever, ha!
And that, my friends, was a year ago today. Now I have a four month old baby boy who is almost 20 pounds. And my heart and arms are full.
