Monday afternoon, December 19th, while feeling so tired I could have fallen asleep at my desk, I decided to venture out with my co-worker to the baby store to buy a pack and play for my sister who was going to be visiting for Christmas. I wanted a natural color because I watch my nephew and I thought I could possibly use it down the road. On the way home from work I texted my sister that I had bought a pack and play. She had insisted I didn't need to buy one, but I told her I could use it for my future baby. The next text from my sister was 'are you pregnant' I just laughed and said heck no.
I was late, but I was also late the last few months. I stopped by Safeway on my way home to pick up chicken noodle soup for my poor husband who was very sick. I walked by the pregnancy test aisle and tossed one in my cart for the heck of it. When I got home I took the test and walked the dog while I waited. When I came back I was absolutely shocked when I saw TWO lines. After so many negative tests I finally got my TWO LINES! I was shaking and close to tears when I burst into our bedroom where my husband was sleeping off the flu.I was holding the test and said “I’M PREGNANT”.He sat up and hugged me tight and could not believe it. I took a test each morning for the next two days. Each of them promptly confirmed that I was knocked up. :)
