For some reason after I had explained to my mother how ridiculous it would be to test, I noticed Sage was engrossed in a baby signing time video, and I decided it might be an idea to take one anyway.
I managed to find my last first response test - stuck in with a packet of ovulation predictor tests.
I peed. I watched the color move across the strip, and there before my eyes two faint pink lines appeared. I was ecstatic. I cried, out of relief and happiness, texted a few friends, was about to call my mother to tell her the good news, when instinct told me not to.
Last time this happened I got my period. I was just thinking about posting on this blog - when it occurred to me there was something slightly different about the test. I couldn't put my finger on it. Perhaps they had changed something. Turns out it wasn't a pregnancy test at all - only some give away fertility test measuring FSH.
What an idiot I am - but why would they make the tests nearly identical? It should say NOT at pregnancy test all over it! I can't be the first person to make this mistake.
I took a real test after that - and results don't look good!
