being pregnant never crossed my mind. we had given up on the idea that we could have a baby a couple of years ago. so any symptoms i may have had i totally ignored.
a few years ago i bought some pregnancy tests from the dollar store... well the weekend after thanksgiving i figured i better pull them out- just for fun. surely nothing would come of it! on that sunday morning i woke up early to use the restroom and thought it might be fun to try one of the tests.
it was postive.
i blew it off because:
#1 it was from the dollar store! how reliable could it really be?
#2 it had expired in november of 2006 !!!!
so when i woke up for good a few hours later i took another test.
so i proceeded to take the remaining 2 tests in my cupboard!
they all were postive!!
at that point i decided i needed to go to walmart and buy a real, current and name brand test. when kevin called that morning i told him i needed to run to walmart to get a few things. he was confused because i don't usually shop on sundays. i ignored the question at first and then finally gave in and told him why i was going to walmart.
he told me to go now!!
i didn't need to use the restroom when i got home, so the wait begins. in the mean time kevin is calling me every 30 mins or so to see "how it was going". ha! a couple of hours later i decided to give it a try! now, in my opinion, they "pee on the stick" method doesn't work. :)
so off i go to wait for another couple of hours. drinking water along the way!
finally i figured i could try again, this time using the other method. i was so nervous. hopeful, but careful not to get excited!
the test was positive. almost immediatley!
now i have taken many pregnancy tests in my life and they have NEVER been postive. when i saw the plus sign i instantly started crying.
this time was different.
i couldn't believe it! i called kevin in tears, holding my postive test, and told him that we were going to have a baby. i was pregnant. wow!!
we both cried for a bit, very excited and overwhelmed!
the next day i went to the hospital for a blood test and it too was postive. i then scheduled a dr. appt for the next week. wow... i was pregnant!
we told my mom and a few of our closest friends, but decided not to make any other announcements until i hit the 12 week mark.
the next week i went to my first dr appt and i got an ultrasound!! guess what!!!
there was a baby in there!!
