Now, I have been late before...three times. Their names are (for the sake of this blog) ET, Thumbelina and Munchkin. I never actually HAD to take a pregnancy test. (Not that it ever stopped me either!) You see, my morning sickness was a pretty good indicator. With the last two, I was sick before I ever missed the actual period date.
So I was late.
But, I wasn't sick.
I, of course, turned to the internet, where you can get pregnancy tests for under $1. (The catch here is your order has to be more that $5--that's right--I bought 6 pregnancy tests. But, shipping was FREE!!)
The first one definitely had two lines, but the second line was soooo light...
...That I waited a few hours and took another one.
And then another one the next morning.
Then I waited. Three whole sick-less days. Yep, still two lines. But this time the second line was a bit darker. A little more definitive.
But I wasn't sick. Maybe I could get through a pregnancy without being sick. I hoped. I prayed.
Nausea, vomiting, and a whole lot more nausea!
I called the nurse begging for some relief. She gave me Promethazine, which is what I took with Munchkin so I could get enough relief to sleep. This drug that did wonders last time, did absolutely nothing. After three days of waiting to see if it would build up in my system and work, I called the nurse again.
She said, "Have you ever tried Zofran?"
$5 later ($532 for our insurance company--thanks again!), I took my first pill. I felt relief! It was amazing! I could walk without wanting to puke. I slept great!
Now, my body (and my baby who hates me), has caught on and the Zofran is only working very sporadically. Which is why you have been treated to posts which consist of a couple of pictures and maybe a sentence or two.
So, YAY! WE'RE PREGNANT!
But I am only counting weeks since I have been sick. Turns out those tests are for in-vitro patients and can detect as soon as 6 days after implantation. So we are due sometime in May.
That's seems so far away!
