Because The Stick Said So Last Weekend

or Reasons I’m Not Pregnant

I don’t feel pregnant. (Really. And I oughtta know, right? Plus the stick thing is pretty iron-clad evidence.)

I’m not light-headed. (Except for that tunnel-vision thing, but that was because I was so tired I couldn’t see straight.)

[TMI alert] No boob tenderness. (Sorry Electricyoak, just forget I said that.)

I’ve gone to bed really early the last couple of nights, but my sleep schedule is all out-of-whack. (I went to bed too late a couple of other nights. But did I nap on those days?)

I felt nauseous on the drive home last night, but that was because I was so tired. (Tuesday night, too, but for the same reason. See above.)

We’re going to the beach in August, and I really don’t want to have to be sober the whole time.

I reveled in not being a child-pod on Tuesday.

[TMI alert] I mean, it was just that once on the edge of what possibly could have been the right time last month. What are the chances?

Wait, the boob-tenderness thing is often absent for second pregnancies?

[TMI alert] My cycle’s been a little weird, with the weaning and restarting only a couple of months ago, so last weekend might have been too early for the stick.

Because the stick said something different on Tuesday night.

That guy? Was Bump.

Consider yourself blogformed. Or enblogged. Or blogified.

Do I have to review 8th grade health class for you again?

What are the odds? quote my favorite 1970's, school projector movie "It only takes ONCE."

I am much like a crack addict when it comes to pregnancy tests. I could take them just for fun.

I vote you go buy more tests.

Way to Go! I'll start collecting very small non-Buc gear from around here for you.

PS - Erin isn't kidding about taking pregnancy tests for fun.

Wow - congratulations and yea!!

And you really must be pregnant, because on my way to work this morning I was thinking about how since I began blogging, I havent heard any pregnancy anouncements so it must be time. I have a freakish esp that way, and I dont even know you.

My boobs never hurt when I was pregnant with my twins, ever.

That is freaky, Michele. (The ESP thing, not the boob thing.)

Does anyone know of any twelve-step programs to combat stick-peeing addictions for Erin? It must be an expensive hobby.

Congratulations! I had lots of symptoms every time I wasn't pregnant, but not so many at the start of actually being pregnant. Sounds like you should trust the stick.
