Darn $5 sticks!!!

So we have some exciting news! This isn’t on facebook yet, but I’m sure that it will be soon!!!

November 1, 2010 – Darn $5 sticks.

B-man and I were never “trying.” We did decide to stop using birth control about 6 months ago though. We felt like we were at a place were we felt like we were ready when things fell into place – but we weren’t going to push things. Since that fateful day I had taken a pregnancy test on the first of every month – only for my period to start later that day. Oh the luck. And of the number of $5-10 sticks I have peed on. I had grown so used to just staring at the lone pink line, half hoping, half dreading that another little line would show up.

Today was kind of a weird morning. I guess it was usual for me to take a pregnancy test at the beginning of the month – but thanks to the previous few months, my excitement levels were down. I peed on the $5 stick. And set it down while I washed my hands. As I picked it up… I could swear that there was a faint pink line. It was so faint – that when I went back to take a picture of it – it didn’t show up! But I called B-man in, and demands that he look at it. He said he could kind of see it – but wasn’t sure if it was really there.

I was running late for work so I gave up on the test, and finished getting ready, and then ran out the door. My heart was pounding all morning. Mondays. On Mondays I have a break in the afternoon – so I went to the Walgreen’s near our house and bought one of those electronic sticks to pee on. That way – the answer would be more obvious.

And it was.

I put the stick (with the cap on) on B-man’s desk. He was kind of frozen. Of course, my dear husband has never in his life reacted appropriately to anything – so I don’t know why I expect things to change, but his first reaction was more nervous than excited. I was the opposite, more excited than nervous.

I haven’t been to a Dr. yet, but I will hopefully be doing that soon!!!

Continue the fun!

  1. Congrats!! Better than my husband's reaction–each-and-every-time!

    It will probably be a few weeks before a doctor will see you, often they wait until 8-12 weeks. I've got some experience with this one, so let me know if you have any questions. 🙂

    Congrats again!!
