Number 5 - "Definitive Proof"

Friday, December 19, 2003 -- A day I'll never forget...

On this date, I finished up the 1st semester of school with our Christmas party. I then headed over to Dr. Bailey's office for my scheduled appointment. Jason and I were getting ready for Christmas at our house and a mission trip to San Quintin, Mexico. I had suspected that I might be pregnant and had indeed taken the test at home (it came out positive). But Jason would not believe anything until he heard it straight from the doctor himself. He didn't want to get excited unless he was sure we were pregnant. He said he needed "definitive proof" before he'd believe.

Based on our conversation at his office, Dr. Bailey was pretty sure I was pregnant but to make it official he sent me off for blood work. They ended up taking 7 vials! He promised to call our house later on that afternoon when he knew the results.

I had some last minute shopping to get done before heading home. I arrived home shortly after Jason and I think that my face gave it all away. I quickly ran inside to check the answering machine while he was outside taking care of a few things. Sure enough, Dr. Bailey had left us a message. At last, Jason had his "definitive proof"! I had a little gift for Jason in honor of his new role as "Daddy." To my surprise, Jason had a small gift for me, too: a "pregnant" Precious Moments figurine! We were both so excited and happy! After sharing this moment together, we instantly started thinking about how to break the news to our families. Christmas 2003 was definitely special for us!


God had heard our prayers! We were so excited and so thankful for this incredible gift from Him.

Great story! I hadn't heard the story about the day you found out you were pregnant. Certainly a day Mommas never forget. I have heard the story about finding out you were carrying twins and that is a neat one. I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall and seen your faces.

I come off as something of a Doubting Thomas in this story, but I love it anyway. I just didn't want to set myself up for major disappointment, you know? Special memories...
