The Age Old Question

I haven’t been feeling myself for a little while now…

I’ve gained a bit a lot of weight in the last little while…

I’m tired… moody… hungry…

Are you pregnant?

(Why is this always everyone’s first question…?)

No – that’s not it… Except. come to think of it…

My last period was a little late and lighter than normal…

And, my breasts feel full and tender…

And, someone does have to be that 1/1000 with a failed IUD.

Good thing I work in a hospital where I have easy access to these:

I was feeling a little nervous as I opened the package…

I watched the test develop, rather patiently…

And, the answer to the age old question?

Drum Roll… Please?

I was shocked to realize that I was a little disappointed in the result.

    1. Yes, I think it is.
      I feel like the hardest part about deciding to have another baby is the actual “deciding” part. If it just happens… well, then the decision is made for you 🙂

        1. If pulling out an IUD was that simple, I might already be on that path! But it seems like every time I go to my doctor these days, I am there because of how crummy I am feeling. To add on a request to have that pulled out just feels sheepish.

          I used to end up anaemic after about a year with an IUD, so they had to come out for that reason. But you’re not feeling crummy because you’re anaemic, are you?

    1. Oh, the feeling of disappointment at a negative pregnancy test, or the feeling of being worried about pregnancy? I really don’t know what to make or everything!

      1. Both!! Haha!! But more that feeling of disappointment with the negative test. When it was eventually positive I was instantly thrilled and terrified all at the same time. But definitely thrilled.

        1. Haha! We’ve talked about it a bit. I brought it up last night and he just said “I don’t want to talk about it right now.” I think it has more to do with all his stress over opening his new clinic in 2 weeks. I know he’s wanted to have another baby for a while. I was always the one saying no
