wait on the Lord, and He shall renew thy strength

This has been my breath prayer for the two week wait. Breathe in...wait on the Lord...breathe out...and He shall renew thy strength. It has been so calming, so wonderfully peaceful.

I woke up early Monday morning (2:30am) with awful cramps. Crap. I knew I would start my period that day. But I was at peace. I trusted God with the outcome, and for once, believed that eventually we would get pregnant, if not this month.

But my period didn't come.

Early Tuesday morning I couldn't sleep either, so I got up to take a test around 5:45am. I sat on the toilet and counted to 121 to avoid looking at the test while I waited the two long minutes. Wait on the Lord...and he shall renew thy strength.

Positive. POSITIVE! I could hardly get off the toilet fast enough. I ran into where Ben lay praying in bed, jumped almost on top of him, saying "turn on the light! turn on the light! it's positive! positive!"

Needless to say, he was very happy.

Bloodwork came back today. Things look good. Fifteen months later, a long two week wait, and now the 40 weeks begins. :) Praise be to God, who makes all things new.
