My bud Nell over at MomsBlogging.com has started a new Meme… Memory Lane Monday. This week we are talking about when we first saw those two lines!
My first baby girl was most definitely a surprise. I had tried for three years to have a baby and never could, so I really thought something was wrong with me! One day at work though I started feeling so sleepy and honestly like I had been hit by a train. I even fell asleep during our department meeting. .
I never really put two and two together until about a week later and thought hmm I have not had my period yet this month. I asked my boss if I could leave for the day as I was not feeling well. He said sure go ahead and get well! I of course stopped by our drug store and picked up a pregnancy test. Now.. get this Scott calls while I'm at the store and was just wondering what I was up to since he couldn't get me at work. I just told him I wasn't feeling well and stopped to pick up some medicine and go home to rest. He said oh ok.. and that was that.
So I get my pregnancy test go home and whip into the bathroom really fast… now I knew it said you were suppose to catch first morning's pee for more accurate results but heck no I couldn't do the wait. I took the test and I couldn't bare to look at it as I didn't want to get disappointed. I did a hurried glance after a few minutes and I thought I saw more than one line so I took a double take. OMG I started freaking then there was TWO LINES!!! I am going to have a baby. I wanted to shout from the rooftops!
I wrapped the test up and put it in my dresser and just went and laid down and I know I had the biggest smile on my face. Next thing I know I woke up and Scott was standing beside me. He said are you ok HUN? I said sure I am.. just a little tired. Then he looked at me and said do you have something to tell me? I said what do you mean… he said I just got goose bumps today when I was talking on the phone with you. You didn't go to the store to get medicine did you? He said I KNOW YOU ARE PREGNANT. He was grinning ear to ear. I said how did you know? I went and got the test and showed it to him. From that night on he pretty much babied me the whole pregnancy.. such a blessing and today he adores his girls more than anything!
I still have my pregnancy test and actually have mine from Lyndsee as well. I always look at them every once in a while and just sit down and think back during those times that I took the tests. Wow has my life changed since I have my girls, but I know one thing I would NOT want to live life without my girls. 🙂
