One Year Ago Today...

I took my first (and second and third and fourth) pregnancy test ever! Surprise...it was POSITIVE! I remember I was off work that day and decided that I should go to Target to buy a pregnancy test since I was "late". I felt so odd looking at the pregnancy tests, like I wasn't old enough to be doing that (even though I was about to turn 29 in 4 days). Luckily, there was an older fellow staring blankly at the condoms while I was staring blankly at the pregnancy tests. I finally decided on the traditional "2 line" kind and then I also got a couple of the fancier ones. I got home and took one of the "2 line" ones and read the directions. I saw where it said something about it possibly taking a couple minutes for it to show up. So I did my business on the stick and put it on the back of the toilet and that second line showed up IMMEDIATELY. I took out one of the fancier models and did the same thing again. The word "pregnant" showed up IMMEDIATELY again! Whoa. I somehow mustered up enough pee to take 2 more tests...the same thing happened for each one. Holy cow, that was quick. Josh and I had only been somewhat trying for 2 months. I remember being slightly freaked out by how fertile we were. Little did I know! To this day I wonder if the reason the positives showed up so quickly was because I was pregnant with twins!


  1. I bet that is the reason that it showed up so quickly! The question is, did you keep the sticks? :)
