Two lines, 20 years later

Exactly 20 years ago today, I peed on a stick -- a home pregnancy test.

We'd been trying to have a baby for more than two years, without success.

Almost immediately, two bright blue lines popped into view. Positive. 

I took a blood test at my family doctor's office the next day, and the day after that, he called to tell me he had "good news." 

Thus began the roller coaster ride...

I wrote about those two blue lines 10 years later, i.e., 10 years ago (!) on this blog, here. I don't feel the need to rehash the details of what happened all over again, today. 

But it's amazing to think how two blue lines totally changed my world -- and in ways I could never have imagined at the time...


  1. In ways you could never image.... Hugs to you.

  2. Sending hugs. Yes. I remember the first two pink lines that set me on this path (16 years ago). You've been through such a lot, and you're an inspiration to many. More hugs.

  3. Sending love, these anniversaries are tough nuggets to swallow -- all the anticipation, all the excitement, all the things that followed... I'm grateful you share it here. <3
