“Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes"

“Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers, and sisters, aunts and cousins, but only one mother in the whole world.”
-Kate Douglas Wiggin.

Well said Kate Douglas Wiggin! I couldn't agree more.
I knew I wanted to be a mother ever since I was a little girl.
Than came time to get married and start a family and I couldn't be more excited.
I also knew my husband was challenged in the "fertility department", but as an optimist by nature, I stayed positive. Months, than years have gone by and still no baby.
 We finally went to a fertility clinic. Without getting into too much detail , we were told that the prognosis for the future was rather grim.
I was devastated. All my friends either just had  kids or were expecting.

....and than after addressing the issue during my yearly visit with my OBGYN I was told to relax and enjoy my life and stop obsessing about the baby. I was also told by the same doctor not to worry too much about my husband's ***** count, because all I needed to conceive was ONE cell with good sense of direction. I tried to follow my doctor's advice.  Months went by again.

....When I finally missed my period by few days, I wasn't all that hopeful or excited, because it has happened many times before.
I had no early pregnancy symptoms to collaborate with my longing for a baby.
I waited two weeks before I worked up the courage to buy a pregnancy test. I told no one.
I took the test, but was too scared to look. I just didn't want to be disappointed AGAIN!
 
Although I can get emotional listening to a good song or watching a movie, I rarely cry happy-tears in everyday life. 
That day in October of 2006, when I took that pregnancy test, changed everything.
 When I finally decided to turn around and take a pick at the stick, I saw two blue lines I have never seen before.
It meant I was going to be a mother and I have never cried happy-tears so loudly before or since.

My daughter is almost five now and I must say, at the risk of sounding cliche, that she gave my life a new meaning and purpose and I'm really blessed to have her in it! Happy Mother's Day!!
