It’s always an interesting decision on when you decide to take a pregnancy test. For me, I had already taken a few in the past, so I didn’t think much of it. J had been reminding me for the past couple days that he thought my period was supposed to be the week earlier and that I should take one just to see. I never really keep track of when it’s supposed to come, especially since being off BC, so I just figured it was him being anxious and didn’t think much of it.
I finally remembered to take one the morning of March 6th. I did my business, left the stick on the bathroom counter, and went to the kitchen to finish getting ready for work. Suddenly, I hear from the bathroom, “Ummm… it’s positive…?!” Of course, my initial response was “You’re joking…?!”
I go to the bathroom, and low and behold, the stick has a plus sign. It’s faint, but it’s definitely there. My initial thoughts were excitement, couldn’t believe it was actually happening, and wait… I still have to go to work today!
J and I got to share in the joy for about 10 minutes before I had to leave. It was a surreal drive to work… I either felt like I was drugged or drunk. I couldn’t tell you the speed I was going, whether it was busy or not, whether I had even changed lanes. It was crazy (and probably not too safe!)
Even though my job keeps me busy, the day was filled with a lot of emotions and excitement and overall disbelief. Obviously, I knew it was a possibility for us to have gotten pregnant, but it’s a crazy feeling to know that you’ll officially be a “real” (not doggy!) mom in less than 9 months.
Now that I think about it, taking a pregnancy test 15 minutes before I had to leave for work probably wasn’t the best idea. It was a great feeling though. <3
