We're scheduled for a blood test (to check for pregnancy) exactly one week from today. The nurse said, if we wanted to jump the gun, we could try a home pregnancy test one or two days before the blood test. She also said not to be disheartened if our test comes up negative, because it could be too early to detect the pregnancy hormone.
We were getting ready to head to my folks to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family, when I thought it would be such a wonderful surprise if we could announce our (hopeful) pregnancy now... with everyone there. Having one sad remaining pregnancy test left in the drawer (and while Nick still slept) I peed on the stick, knowing full well it would be negative this early in the game. I sat there on the toilet watching that annoying hourglass blink on ClearBlue's digital screen. And then it happened.
For the first time EVER... my pregnancy test said PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!
I totally wasn't expecting it, and was in complete shock. What do I do? Is it real? How do I tell Nick? What if it's a false positive? Is there such a thing as false positive?
OMG I'm pregnant.
I marched back into the bedroom, flipped the light on, and started screaming at the top of my lungs.
