It was any other winter day in January. I ran some errands with the kids, got everyone home and fed, then put the kids to bed a little later. Daniel and I snuggled on the couch watching Stargate Universe on Netflix with only a strand of Christmas lights gently lighting the cavern of a room.
One episode ended and I decided it was time for a potty break. I ran upstairs, hesitating, thinking. Should I test? Should I wait? I had bought a 3-pack of First Response, the best pregnancy tests, from the store earlier. Even then I debated whether or not to buy them. I thought for certain I'd be tossing away those precious dollars with negative tests staring back at me and Aunt Flo following not long after.
Eh, what's the harm? It's a 3-pack. I can use one and save the rest for another cycle. Even though my period wasn't due for two more days I felt I'd get an accurate result.
Estimated date of arrival- September 23, 2011!
