(Just in case you're new to my blog, I am going through and posting some of my personal "baby journal" entries. I remember this one like it was just yesterday!)
I went to the doctor's office today and... my test there came out positive as well! It was such a relief to have it confirmed and to know I go back on Tuesday for an actual appointment.
The visit was a little awkward, but it all worked out in the end. One nurse knew a little English and was sweet enough to try to help me. I asked if they did pre-natal visits and she looked unsure, so I pointed to (more like rubbed) my belly to try to get my message across (and pointed to an Anne Geddes poster!) I tried to explain that I had taken a test at home and it was positive, but I still don't know if she thought I needed a test or if I had taken a test. So, I may have peed in a cup for no reason. Oh well, it was still 15 euros well spent. I'm guessing it is just common practice to give the test to be sure, but who knows!
She took down all my essential information before administering the test. Then, afterward she called us both into the office and explained the test came back positive. I, of course, was grinning ear to ear. I didn't even look up to see John's reaction- probably not much of a chance since we already assumed we were. :)
She said, "This is a good thing, right?"
I said, "Yes, a very good thing."
And then she said, "Congratulations."
So, now it all seems a bit more real. That, combined with my morning sickness, affirms there is a precious little one growing fast inside of me. What an absolute miracle!
