Tag Archives: Pregnancy Test


15 Apr

We got a late Valentine’s Day Present in the form of a Positive Pregnancy Test.

Of course, I tested on Valentine’s Day and it was negative. It was a disappointment but I figured we would just continue with the HSG testing and see what happened.

I was still feeling alittle off so Tyler told me to take a test on Saturday morning. I peed on the stick not thinking anything of it and got in the shower since I had work that weekend. Low and behold, I get out of the shower and it says POSITIVE. Tyler and I hugged and cried alittle as I was still wet and naked. My whole body was shaking. We called Sarah and  my mom (and yes, in that order) and he told his parents. I went to work… crying the entire way because I was so excited and so scared. I told LM when I got into work… and at that point it didn’t matter what happened at work, I was happy.


This was actually the day that Dr. Jennie called me from the Hospital to give me the results of the Progesterone Test. In that blog I told you what happened but there is more to the story. The reason I called her back at the hospital was because I was going to have to call her anyway to get a blood test on Monday. When she answered the phone to give me the results, I told her I knew them already since I had a positive pregnancy test. She told me that my level was through the roof and that was a good thing considering the positive test.

Upon going home I decided to take another test, just because. Well, we had a come to Jesus moment. That bastard said “Not Pregnant”. I was upset, sad and thinking OH NO! Well I decided to take the test apart and see if I could see the blue line. Mind you, Tyler was on his way home at this point. I probably should have thought how to break open a test but instead I grabbed a small screw driver and little hammer. As I am trying to pry this thing open, while I have the test that said pregnant literally staring at me still on the table, Ty comes home. He walks in on me and goes “We need to not be this crazy, lets get off this train, what are you doing?” So I tell him and he takes a look at the stick, removes the pee on part and then sticks a pen into the empty slot and the things magically opens… Should have thought that one through in hindsight. We see the double lines. Faint but its there.

I tested every day with the various tests I had laying around until 2/23/13, because well, you never know.




Getting Grumpy and Tired Again

25 Sep

That time of the month people! Its almost D-Day for my period (October 1st) and the count down starts. Of Course, Tyler thinks I am stressing but I am actually less stressed than I was last month. But that is still pretty high on the stress scale considered last month I was alittle Manic.

Per Countdowntopregnancy.com… If I am going to get pregnant this month, I would be implanting on Wednesday of this week (or at least that is the most common day based on my cycle). So… I will be waiting to see if there is a present in my panties (does that sound icky) on that day by way of spotting and then I will wait til Probably Friday to start testing.
Ty last night was like “none of this peeing on a stick every morning and night until you get your period, if you get your period this month, stop stressing”. And of course I was like I just want to start crying because it is such a different emotional experience each month between him and I.

While I can understand tys position, I want to give him the finger.

Then this morning my dang Basal Thermometer didnt want to work. Since I discovered that I did not need to stick that thing in my ass, I bought one and it Arrived on Friday. I have been testing at 5:52am every morning (Yes, ladies and gentleman I woke up on Saturday and Sunday at 5:52am to be consistent, go me!) and recording it happily in my little period tracker. This morning though all the thing would do is turn on, beep once and then turn off. I tried for about 5 minutes and then gave up. I think I beeped the shit out of Tyler as he was still trying to sleep but whatever (there was my middle finger from last night revenge). I looked at the directions, no help… decided to try one more time and it worked! Did some more beeping for about a minute and then gave my me temperature.

So all that combined is making me feel sad. Why sad? I dont know. I dont feel like it is going to happen this month but at least I know I did ovulate (cramps, hello! and ovulation kit, hello darker blue line) but I just dont feel it. I try to remember what it felt like back in 2010 and its vague. I remember getting a cold in the end of August so I felt awful then I was too stressed to remember my own name in the beginning of September and then spotted for three days and then major boobie hurtage a week or two later and then positive pregnancy test second to last week of September… Then gone.

I never thought days could go by so slow but time as a whole goes by so fast (Meaning, I am going to go nuts waiting for a few more days but how the hell is it almost October!).

I have put both another round of OPKs in my cart on Amazon and now I am tempted to buy a first response as well. Can anyone speed up time for me? I would love to know if this month is it or not. If it is not, oh well, lets try again next month.

Also as a side, I have been having  crazy dreams that are really hard for me to figure out if they really happened or if I dreamt them because I am that confused. Most of them center around finding out another person is pregnant on Facebook. Then I have to search their timeline to figure out if they really are pregnant or if I dreamt it. I really wish those would stop!

I did splurge this weekend. I had two glasses of red wine on Saturday. I know I know… I should have but it was over dinner and I had already decided that I was going to have one glass… it turned into two and then I went back to my seltzer.

I am feel blah today – seems like I always do this time of the month. Also the weather here is NOT helping.

Did you know you can Buy Bulk Pee Tests?

3 Aug

Did you? I am not referring to the 3 packs you can get at CVS (Holla CVS IS AWESOMEEEEEEE!!!!) but I mean the 25 count/50 count tests you can buy on Amazon.


So one day I am obsessing over baby stuff like normal and I decide you really can never have TOO many pregnancy tests. I mean you cant. Our first go around we took eight tests, nine if you count the one I took at the doctors office. I figured that trying would be difficult so I would go through alot of tests.

Alot of baby websites say you can get deals on pregnancy tests and use coupons and all this wonderful stuff but ever since I have started looking for them at CVS or Rite Aid, these deals are NON EXISTENT. And tests are expensive. And I need the ones that say “yes bitch you are pregnant” or “do not pass go, try again” because otherwise both Ty and I are in disbelief.  I have heard stories of people reading them wrong, especially the ones that look like an accident reconstruction diagrams opposed to a good old yes or no or pregnant or not pregnant.
Anyway, I decide to order the actual litmus tests and some pee cups. I think my amazon cart totaled maybe like 29.00 with shipping and handling and I was like This is such a better deal than buying them from the store. I know that the tests did not say yes or no but I rationalized that I could basically pee on the entire lot and really no harm no fowl and I would know.
So I tell Sarah this and she called me crazy. I cancelled the order. She was right. It is crazy. There is really no reason for me to have that many tests. Also, taking multiple tests is great an all but I really have to have a blood test to confirm per my awesome OB/GYN. Also how would I explain a medical supply of pregnancy tests to my husband. Where would we keep them? And where would we keep all the damn pee cups? We are already in need of closet space as it is. And what would I do with them all after we hopefully got pregnant? Just store them until next go around?

Great Idea trying to save money but horrible execution.

Sarah tries to keep it real with me. She constantly reminds me its not easy for people to get pregnant and that it may not work this month or next month. She also reminds me to not tell anyone just in case (Ill write a blog about that horrible mistake later), not to get my hopes up, to relax and stress. I wish I could. Its like this horrible little thing on my shoulder going “dont drink caffeine, no alcohol, did you eat enough vitamins, stay stress free, track your cycle, stay away from harsh chemicals yada yada yada… its a nag. Always nagging me. I try not to obsess over it but I cant help it.
