Sitting in the blazing sun in Justin Herman Plaza, I looked up into the blue sky and said, “please.” I had only the tiniest flicker of hope.
Then I listened to Olga’s voicemail which was already 40 minutes old.
“K! it’s Olga! I have great, great, great news for you! You are pregnant! Congratulations! Your number is 998 so that’s a fantastic number, we like to see a number of 100 and above so you are right right right on target. Congratulations, so happy for you! I can’t wait to tell Dr. Tran.”
And then I had to listen to it 3 times before I believed it was real.
And then I hyperventilated and cried and speed dialed my family. And then I called Olga back to see if that means twins. She said it’s a “definite possibility” but also could be a singleton. She said that she and Dr. T. high-fived when she told him the news.
And then I celebrated with a grilled cheese sandwich and smiles.
We are off to a good start and have already cleared many initial hurdles. An unexpected miracle!
Amazing how my reaction never changes; even after all I’ve been through I am 110% excited.
One day at a time, and so much gratitude for this day and all the love around me. xoxoxo
