So if you know already know that!
It all began last Tuesday, Oct. 23rd. I randomly decided to bring a pregnancy test to work with me (this thing was one year expired!) I had been feeling premenstrual symptoms for far too long, and I was growing suspicious. I peed in a cup, submerged the stick in it and waited. I had no instructions so I wasn't even sure if I would know what the result meant. Oh well...proceed.
I stare at it. I'm seeing a solid vertical line...faint horizontal. A faint "plus" could be negative, right? the trash it goes. I couldn't be anyways. Not after all these years. Plus this thing is old as dirt.
After an hour it starts to eat at me. Could I have read it wrong? I quickly look up the readings for ept on their website. OMG. A solid vertical is positive, and solid horizontal is negative. Whoa. I hall ass to the mini mart and quickly snatch up another test...and some TUMS. lol. Same result. Wow. First things first. Go back to the bathroom and reclaim my test from the trash. Next...take pictures of it. Sis is the first person I call. I didn't want to say too much just in case I was wrong. Ya right. By the end of the day everybody new.
It took me about 3-4 days to recoup. I was a walking daydream. All I could do was analyze my new life from labor to how am I going to work? Do I take the baby on the ferry with me?? HA>
Then I decided to slow down and take it one day at a time. Today I will worry about going to the hospital and getting settled in. Not what will I do when "she" gets a cough. This is all so surreal...
