I Knew Before I Knew

I have a feeling that people think I am crazy when I tell this story… but I tell it anyway because it’s the truth. In the beginning of September last year, I was sitting on the couch one day doing nothing exceptional. In fact, I think I was just opening mail. When all of a sudden, I felt what I can only describe as the tiniest magical flutter inside of me. It would be a week before I would know for sure and it would be months & months before I would feel the baby move. But, when I felt that flutter, I knew before I knew. I could’ve only been in the very earliest stage of my pregnancy, but something happened inside of me that day. And I felt it.

It was shortly after that magical moment that I rushed to my local CVS pharmacy and picked up a pregnancy test — actually a bunch of pregnancy tests. You know how it is… I just wanted to be really sure. I picked Clearblue Easy tests because I’ve heard good things about them. The first one came back positive, and then the second, and… yes the third one did, too. Did you know that the new Clearblue Weeks Estimator test is up to 99% accurate and it can tell you how many weeks along you are? Even if you’re only 1 or 2 weeks along it will tell you that, too. You can find the new Clearblue Weeks Estimator at or your local CVS Pharmacy. Isn’t science extraordinary nowadays? It felt so good to get the confirmation that my miracle was, in fact, on his way. ♥

There were so many special moments after that one — telling Matthew, telling my mother & sister, telling my family & friends — but that first flutter and those excruciatingly exciting minutes after taking those tests — those were the best. I’ll never forget the joy I felt during those precious moments as long as I live.
