I knew somewhere around January 14th, 2004 I could take a pregnancy test. I was so excited and so nervous to take it.
I actually remember Googling “pregnancy symptoms” every day preceding that week… and I spent each day convincing myself I was pregnant, and then that I wasn’t.
So my sister-in-law suggested I take one of those Early Pregnancy Tests… you know, where you can tell (supposedly) 3-4 days earlier if you are actually pregnant.
Sounded easy enough. And I knew it would give me the answer I so desperately
So Matt and I stopped at CVS on our way home that night from work (I still remember that it was a Wednesday!).
We lived in NYC, so I remember walking by Central Park and seeing bunches of kids playing, and thinking to myself, “Please make that be us”!
So I grabbed the EPT test… then, you know, took the test… and put it on the bathroom sink. And then I went into the bedroom.
Exactly 2 mintutes later (I counted the seconds!) I asked Matt to go look because I was too scared.
He came into the bedroom and handed me the test.
I was devastated.
I remember taking a tub that night and sitting there, just crying to myself. Matt walked in and sat on the floor, rubbed my back and said, “Don’t worry, it will happen. It’s only been one month.”
So the next few days passed and I felt those period cramps coming… yuck!
Well, Saturday morning – January 17th, 2004 – I woke up still without a period. At that point I was officially 2 days late.
So I went into the bathroom and got the other EPT test in the box. I thought Matt would think I was crazy for taking another test, but I needed to do it!
I went into the bedroom to Matt waking up. He rolled over and when he saw me, immediately said, “I just had a dream that you were pregnant.”
I laughed and said, “I was actually just about to test again, but I didn’t want to tell you!”
So I went into the bathroom, took the test, placed it down… went into the bedroom to wait the longest 2 minutes OF MY LIFE!
This time we went back into the bathroom together. We looked down… and NO LINES! Not even a test line!
Well, we had it upside-down!
So we flipped it over, and there they were… the 2 most beautiful dark pink lines I have ever seen!
That was the happiest day of my life up until at that point. I literally started jumping around the apartment!!
Then we went out and bought 10 more tests (seriously!) to prove I actually was pregnant.
And now, of course, 3 1/2 years later, my William is the absolute joy of our lives and our shining star, along with his two little brothers, whose “two lines” moments were just as incredible!
