Bear was right.
I've never seen one of those before, at least not mine. This pic doesn't include the first three I did because they were freebie ones that expired in 2011. The directions were pictoral and didn't say how long to hold it in the urine or how long to wait. They also had a second line on them, but I didn't trust it. Bear wouldn't let me go to WalMart at 3:30 this morning when I realized those were all I had, so I used those three first and, when they were positive, put a lid on the container I was using while Bear and I raced to WalMart for fresh tests. On this one, the second line turned blue immediately. Forget "results in 2 minutes!"
I'm shocked I didn't think I could get pregnant. But I'm also really scared. I know how many pregnancies end in miscarriage, and I'm so afraid. I'm trying to relax and appreciate that at least right now, in this moment, I am pregnant. But I am still really guarded, because I know it's a LONG road from here to a take home baby.
But I'm farther than I've ever been, farther than I thought possible. And whatever happens, I have that now.
One final thing: a HUGE thank you to Lisa!!! Your comment gave me comfort that I really needed when I looked at my phone before testing this morning. So thank you, thank you, thank you.
