A few days before my missed period, I wanted to take a test. I was having some small pregnancy symptoms, but I had felt them before during the acupuncture phase with no luck. I didn’t want to get my hopes up and I remembered what my Acupuncturist told me. Whenever a pregnancy was viable the pregnancy test results would start to show HCG very early. The ones you have to worry more about are the pregnancies that don’t start off with strong hormones. With this factoid in my head Andy and I decided to take the plunge and take the test.
After taking the test, I continued to hold it in my hand. I watched the urine slowly move across the window. I felt my breath catch as I waited to see what would happen to the lines. Slowly I stated to see one then another. They were both fairly faint. As the test processed, I called Andy into the bathroom. “Andy, what do you see?” I asked. He said, “It is faint, but there are definitely two lines.” “You see it too,” I trilled!!
I couldn’t believe that on our first go it had worked. I couldn’t believe that maybe we were having a baby. I still had to wait a few days before the Reproductive Endocrinologist would verify the pregnancy. I felt lucky, excited and scared all at the same time.
Peace, Love & Maybe Baby,
