Finding Out: + Pregnant
My husband and I had been trying for about four months and started the previous month tracking my ovulation and such. I knew this was not a long time, but was already starting to get worried that it would be difficult for us. It really is a terrible cycle that when you discover you are not pregnant you also have to deal with your period and all the emotions that come with that.
The week before I took the test I had felt weird a couple days and was even super nauseous one night. Even with this, I was not incredibly hopeful when it came time to take the test, because I did not want to be any more disappointed if it wasn't positive.
On the day of the test, it was a Sunday (about a day before I should have gotten my period) and both my husband and I woke up early, randomly and at the same time. I decided it was a good time to take the test, so I got up and went to go take it. I started with the Clearblue digital so that I didn't have to worry about reading the lines and before I could even wash my hands I looked down and it said "pregnant". I could not believe my eyes!
Still in the bathroom, not able to contain myself or my smile I immediately yelled "Babe!" and he immediately responded, "You're pregnant!" I ran over and showed him the test and both of us could not stop smiling! I ran back to wash my hands (in case you were wondering, since I mentioned it before). And then got back in bed to cuddle and enjoy the moment, recognizing that our life was about to change with incredible blessing coming our way!
A little bit later I took another test just to be sure and it too said "pregnant". After that affirmation we called our siblings and let them know and continued to enjoy the news.
I took the third test the next day as extra confirmation and because I still in shock. I went to the doctor a couple days later and took a test there for full verification. I left the pregnancy test out on the counter for weeks as, even with the nausea and all, every time I saw it I was a little surprised and it brought a smile to my face.
Six months later, it is finally sinking in!
