Deadline: March 4th, 11:59 pm central time. Here’s Joi:
One morning, I woke up before work. I sat on our couch, had my time with Jesus, and then started watching Little House on the Prairie. A pizza commercial came on, and the craving was intense! Then, the show returned, and I almost cried. I never cried during this show. I had this feeling that I was pregnant.
I took the test, and it confirmed what I believed! I woke up my husband, like I did every morning, and told him the news. He looked at me a little shocked and said, “Go take another test!” The man cracked me up! I did, and told him it was positive! My husband had the same response for the next two pregnancies! At least he was consistent! 🙂
