One friend has always said that she thinks your big toe should turn blue if you're pregnant. Not like too-tight-heels blue, like smurf blue. That would take all confusion away, and eliminate the need to pee on a stick, have anxiety for 60-90 seconds, then try to match the picture on the instructions with the tiny results window.
Soon (read: immediately) after we decided to stop not trying, I started to feel funny. Seasick actually. (That's the closest description of morning sickness that I have been able to think of.) The only test I had in the house was from the dollar store. Don't laugh, they work. And if you're going to take five tests in a row, make one or two namebrands and the rest dollar store. Use the other $20 to start a fund for baby- those things are damn expensive (the tests, not the baby), haha.
Anyway, I took the dollar store test. I thought I saw a very light pink line, but I wasn't really sure. It was almost like a photo negative- like the absence of a line in the exact right spot. Ok, that makes no sense unless you've seen it. But that's what I'm talking about-- it's so confusing! And in your state of excitement/terror, your vision is all but clear. But clear enough to notice if your big toe was bright blue.
What were your pregnancy test experiences like? Who was the first person you told?
