The 1 in 4: Abby's Angel Closet

Tuesday, February 27th was like any other day. I went to work, which consisted of work on the road. I had felt some pains but assumed they were merely ligaments stretching. This wasn't my first pregnancy, so I wasn't overly concerned. But after arriving at home, I was just happy to be there with my husband, Rodger, and my 1-year old daughter, Hope. I sat down that evening to give Hope her last bottle of the day when I felt it. I was wet and I knew something was wrong. I began to bleed!

Gosh! Could this really be true? Let me look at it again? It says PREGNANT. I called my doctor’s office as soon as they opened, “I need to make an appointment, I think I’m pregnant.” My cheeks hurting from the smile I couldn’t control. Butterflies in my stomach. Giddiness. Excitement. The nurse on the other end of the phone didn’t seem quite as excited as I did. She must hear those words 20 times a day. She gave me a date and time to come in. I hung up the phone, sat on the couch, so excited. So nervous. So scared. Alone. I kept the news of the pregnancy test to myself.
