We visited my family in Washington for the 4th of July. As everyone was eager to know if this was THE month, I took a few preggers tests way too early. The tests showed a very light positive.
It seemed too good to be true, so we waited. A day after coming back home I took a digital test, and much to our happiness it simply stated "Pregnant". Such an amazing word, a word we have waited for much longer than we had dreamed of.
After test upon test and many months of disapointment, we were blessed with a baby. But this was only the first step. I have a blood clotting issue that sadly places us in the high risk group. I daily inject a blood thinner into my belly and pray that everything will be okay.
We tried to hold the news in. We didn't want to get too excited and spread the news for fear of a miscarriage. But that isn't the way we wanted to start Baby Rodriguez's journey - scared. So yes the chance is there, but our thoughts are focused on the joy we have been given and preparing for the new chapter in our happy marriage!
We are due St. Patty's day!
