Pee on a Stick

Pee on stick

Set stick on counter

Watch the white strip turn pink as pee sinks in

Quickly leave room without looking at stick

Walk around the room

Pretending nothing is happening

Heart pounds

Legs go limp

Stomach turns

What will it be?

Is it already?

Wait a little longer

As if I could prolong what already is

Breathe; in through the nose…out through the mouth…

Everything is going to be ok

3 minutes is a very long time

God help me accept

Whatever it is…

  1. ;-D I made Aaron look the first time.

    This time I waited so stinking long to even bother taking a pregnancy test that it seemed a little silly to even being doing it in the first place. And it was expired. But I was pretty sure my results were accurate. ;-D

  2. Every time I was pregnant, the line appeared almost before urine contact.
    Congrats…I saw the SEAS rosary group email! I hope you are feeling better soon!

    1. Thank you! I am slowly starting to see a little light at the end of the tunnel. My initial lines have always been faint. Well except Alaina’s, I think that one was more obvious but I can’t remember now.
