On my way home from work January 13th around 6pm I began feeling uneasy...just thinking it was something that I ate I wanted to lay down as soon as I got home.
For some reason I decided to take the last "emergency" pregnancy test that I had in the bathroom and...Holy Crap...it was Positive...it only took 1.5 seconds for the positive mark to appear.
I called Eric at work and asked him if he was sitting down.
He said, "no, do I need to be?" I told him to go into his office, shut the door, and sit down. Once he did all of the above I said, "I'm pregnant." Eric said, "Are you really?!" I then began to freak out! I think I said "Oh my God!, What the Heck!" about 100 times.
Eric then proceeded to talk me down and tell me how wonderful this was and how happy he was. Not saying that I wasn't happy...I was just in total shock and disbelief.
After Eric and I hung the phone up I called my best friend, Lindsey and told her. She almost starting crying before I got it out of my mouth. She asked me how many tests I took and I told her that I only had the one.
Lindsey then convinced me to go get more and take them just to be sure. So...as I had Lindsey on the phone...in my pj's and house shoes I went to the gas station...they didn't have any...so then I went to the Winn Dixie and got a box of two...drinking water the entire way. I headed home and took a second test and though it didn't show positive as quickly as the 1st it was positive.
I called Lindsey back to tell her of the confirmation and then the tears came.
I waited for Eric to get home and I showed him the tests. He then said that he wanted to see one turn positive, so I drank more water and used the final test.
This last test was very faint...due to the fact that all I had was water by now...but still positive.
We then decided to look at our name list and added and deleted a few. What a night!
The next day I went to the doctor and had my blood tested to confirm that we were indeed pregnant. They also checked my hormone levels and everything was perfect. I started taking prenatal vitamins that night and I have been trying to be as healthy as possible ever since.
