I wanted to put these pics up, as the day I wrote my big announcement post I didn’t have my camera on me to upload them.
On Dec 22nd I woke up and went into our bathroom, knowing this was the day. Fertility Friend had told me to wait until the 22nd to test, and so I was a good little infertile and waited. I got out the internet cheapies and a plastic dixie cup. With these, you had to dip instead of pee on them directly. So, I did what needed to be done and then went about getting ready. I knew that it was going to be negative, so during the 5 min wait I went and got my breakfast and took my pills. Went back in to check and wouldn’t you know it, this is what I saw:
Well, I was so shocked I thought I was seeing things! Plus, the line was SO light it took me a second to realize that there WAS a second line there! I immediately freaked out. My husband was out walking the dogs. I didn’t know what to do. How could this be possible?? We were really “trying” this month – I mean we were, but I figured it was a wash so we didn’t do as much BDing as I thought we probably should have.
As soon as Justin walked in the door I took the strip to him and said, “I’m going to show you something, but I’m not sure what it means yet.” I then produced the strip to show him. He looked kinda dumbfounded and said, “2 lines is good right?” How cute. 😀 I said, “Yes, but I don’t know what this means!” I guess I was kinda dumbfounded, too. I decided that on my way to work I’d by one of the fancy pants expensive tests to pee on. I though that maybe this was a fluke and the internet strips could not be trusted.
I went in to the store and decided to go with the digital “pregnant/not pregnant” read out ones. That way there would be no guess work involved with lines or plus signs or whatever.
I wanted to wait until after lunch, I knew that the more, um, concentrated the urine was the better results I would get. Yeah, that lasted all of about an hour! At around 10 am (I get to work at 9am) I snuck one of the tests into my pocket and ran to the private staff restroom. This test told me in 3 minutes I would have my results. I did the deed and placed the stick on the ground to wait my 3 minutes.
Not 30 seconds later, this is what popped up on the display:
This was no meer blurry, hard to see line. This was cold, hard facts. There is no denying what that digital display says! I was pregnant!!! Of course, that’s when the REAL freak out began! I discussed this all in my announcement post, so I won’t go into further detail except to say I spent the rest of the day on the phone trying to get a hold of someone to explain this all to me! I was so excited, but so nervous. I don’t think my nerves calmed down until we went to the doctor and saw Little Wiggles heartbeat on the screen. That’s the moment I knew it was true and real.
