What is it with a woman’s mind? We start to feel a little sick or not feel quite like ourselves and then thoughts of maybe being pregnant come to the surface. I’ve been watching the show on TLC called I didn’t Know I was Pregnant….yeah where woman don’t show telltale signs they are carrying a baby.

Lately, I’ve had these weird bouts of nausea. Never do I throw up, but can’t shake this feeling of wanting to. So I decide to head out that night to the local Fredy’s for a test. But for something you pee on, it’s a bit of a chunk to pay. I decided to get the 2 box one and utilize the handy on box coupon, making it 4.50 a test. Dollar Tree would have been my first stop if it weren’t for the fact they closed after 10 PM. This was all going on while Mr. G didn’t even know where I was.

So there I was coming through the door and opening the pink box. Mr. G says, “You think you might be pregnant” with disbelief in his eyes. I shrug my shoulders and continue to my test. Afterwards I let it sit and head to the office. You could hear a pin drop in that room as Mr. G read his book while I surfed the net. Quietly I get up and check the magic stick to find out our fate.

Not Pregnant stares up at my gaze.

Inside of me I wanted to see two pink bars on my four dollars and fifty cent test. The jubilation of telling the future grandparents comes to my thoughts and the happiness it would bring. Not to mention using pregnancy as an excuse to get out a few things or special treatment all because of bun in the oven. Guess I was incorrect in reading my own body. Even with being on the pill, I should have listened to what could be PMS as I shot fart after fart down the aisles. Glad it was a slow night of other shoppers!

Even being on the pill, I know other couples who were using 3 different methods of protection and yet God was smarter and blessed them with a surprise miracle.

  1. Take the test first thing in the morning. That is when the hormone is most concentrated so if you're newly pregnant you're not producing AS much of it - so an AM test is always best.
