Is that a 2nd pink line?

It can't be a 2nd pink line.

So what if I'm 2 days late? So what if I'm NEVER late?

It took us 3 years to get Sariah (we needed a little hormone help).

I can't get pregnant on my own...I know that.

We weren't even trying. I wasn't tracking my cycle...but we weren't exactly being careful.

But it doesn't matter because that's not a 2nd pink line.

It's not as dark or as bold as the "test line."

It's not as wide as the "test line."

It's fuzzy, and the "test line" isn't.

But it doesn't matter because that's not a 2nd pink line.

JARED: Amber, you mean that 2nd pink line that I can CLEARLY see? I think you're pregnant.

No I'm not because I can't get pregnant on my own.

Just to be sure, I'll take another test in the morning with fresh pee.

Still no REAL 2nd pink line. If I was pregnant, you'd see a CLEAR pink line...not this fuzzy, faint wanna be.

Just to be sure, I'll take another test later this morning with a DIGITAL pregnancy test. The word(s) "pregnant" or "not pregnant" will be hard to argue with!

Umm...I guess that was a 2nd pink line.

*** Doesn't matter that I spent 5 years of college studying biology, and almost 2 entire years studying the human body. I taught human anatomy to college-bound high school students who challenged my ever wit with their amazing questions. We spent 2 months on sex ed and reproduction alone. I should know that even if there's a HINT of a 2nd pink line, that I'm pregnant. Can we say DENIAL? ***

i LOVE your sequence of events- i would have totally done the same thing, but the actual word one was a good idea! i would have just kept looking at that faint line all through a 20 pack of testers.
that's great news. i'm not sure i want to hear EVERY detail, but the story sounds like a great one.
