The Results Show: May 23, 2007



I'm three days late! So yesterday after work I stopped by CVS and purchased two pregnancy tests. Last night I didn't sleep a wink. I was wide awake all night just waiting for Jeremy's 5:21am alarm clock to ring so he can get up and get out of the house.

He's finally out of the house and I'm peeing on the stick like it's my job. The test said to wait 3 minutes before reading the result, but I got the BFP (big fat positive) before my pee was even absorbed into the "test correctly taken" window!

I panic. Do I go to work? Do I go to Jeremy's work? Do I call him? No, I can't call him...I can't give him news LIKE THIS over the phone! I pulled myself together, put the test in my purse, and drove to work. Luckily I made it with only three 'close calls'... which without a doubt would have been my fault.

At work, I'm not working. I keep looking at the test. I probably looked at it every minute of every hour I was physically at my desk. Mentally I was in 'holy-shit-I'm-going-to-be-a-Mom-I-can't-say-shit-anymore' land. I decided to surprise Jeremy by writing on the test and giving it to him.

In permanent marker I scribbled: "You made a baby! XXOO 05.23.07". After work I went to Chipotle and ordered two burritos with extra foil and napkins. I wrapped the test in the napkins and then wrapped it in the foil.

Jeremy was delighted to see the fast-food Mexican in hand, but little did he know what was inside! As he unpacked the bags he asked, "What's in this little package?" I replied, "Wet naps". Puzzled, he then opened the foil package. This was followed by silence, a look of confusion, and the question, "Is this a test?!"

The next few minutes were a blur. We hugged. We ate. Jeremy really didn't say much as I think he was in shock, especially it being our first try. A couple more minutes pass and he mumbles, "Well, I'm pretty much good at everything I do, so why should making a baby be any different." We both laughed.

I took another test to be sure, and it was a + as well!
