Ok, this one is actually a highlight.
We waited until I was almost 3 weeks late to take a pregnancy test. Since I've been as regular as a freight train since I was 14 years old, I was pretty sure what that meant. The first test I took we couldn't interpret the results and it was very anticlimactic. Before that moment I was always confused by the TV commercials that advertised CLEAR results. I didn't understand how a person could be confused by such a seemingly binary response.
But we couldn't tell exactly what was going on with our first test.
We drove back over to the grocery store and picked up a different brand...one that was more that just a line or a plus...one that had actual WORDS confirming our suspicions.
15 minutes later we knew.
3 minutes later I was on the computer calling up my parents on skype. I'm not sure if they suspected anything or not...we don't skype all that regularly. We chatted back and forth for about 15 minutes before we said, "well, we have some pretty cool news..."
And we showed them the positive test.
I thought my mom was going to explode with excitement. And the corners of my dad's eyes got a little wet...probably from allergies or something.
I will never forget the looks on their faces for as long as I live. My parents truly love me.
