I've waited a long while to make this post, because I wanted to be sure there wasn't bigger news we needed to share.
Last month, there was a two-week period where I felt super nauseous, dizzy, headachey... Missed my period... All the classic symptoms of pregnancy. So I took a pregnancy test, and it was positive!
But then I took another one and it was negative.
So over the two weeks following I took about 6-8 MORE tests, which were all negative.
I'm saying this now, because this month I did have my cycle, so pregnancy is ruled out. Guess my body was just going through something funky at that time? And I guess we just had a wonky preg test. Who knows!
It got us thinking though about when/how we start our family, because for one day we actually thought we were pregnant. Of course we were over the moon excited (at least I was)... But we were also a little disappointed that our trip to Dominican in September would be... different than expected. I didn't want to be pregnant when we went on vacation, so we were somewhat waiting until after we got back to start actively trying to start a family.
Okay, so fast forward to now. Yesterday we found out that we won't be going to Dominican, after all. Which, of course, we're bummed about. But really? I almost feel like this is God's way of telling us "it's time to take this family thing more seriously". Kind of like... It's time to stop putting other things in front of creating a family.
So, get ready for some interesting posts over the next few months and years. Who knows when God will bless us with a child, but we sure are ready and very much looking forward to it... the highs and the lows!
