In the summer of 2008, I found myself locked in a bathroom stall, staring at three positive pregnancy tests.
I was a solid mix of terrified and thrilled; as much as the timing was off, I wanted children and couldn’t have been happier with the news. I went home and told my husband, who promptly hyperventilated and started discussing joining the military to fund his growing family. We hugged. We discussed our options. We debated how to tell the grandparents-to-be. We decided to set up an appointment with my ob/gyn first. The doctor ran her own tests and confirmed the pregnancy. My head was swimming.
