It was a year ago today that William and I saw the “+” on the home pregnancy test. Trey was already forming inside of me. The next day, my classmates and I were discussing children with my attending at the VA hospital. My attending asked me when I was going to have kids. Doing my best not to lie, but also not to disclose the entire truth, I replied: “we aren’t exactly sure.” Truthfully, I didn’t know exactly when he would be born! (I know, I know, I’m stretching it.) It would still be 2 more months before we let the secret out, but after you have been planning and praying in secret for 2 years, what’s 2 extra months?
I still thank God for that “+” sign.
