The test!

Just thought I'd share how we tested on Friday!
We had planned to test on Saturday, but as Friday evening approached we started talking about testing. I told DH that if we tested tonight we would definitely know. We weighed up the pros and cons. What would we do if it was negative?? How would we cope? We didn't really have an answer. All I knew is that at this stage I was drained from the whole process and I just couldn't think beyond the test.

Anyway we decided to test. I had held my pee from about 6pm and it was now 9.25pm. I had bought a first response test. I told DH that I would POAS and then keep the test turned over and come back in to sit with DH on the couch. We would wait the 3 mins and turn over the test together. So off I go, POAS and return the DH on the couch. We held each other, my heart was jumping out of my chest, I could hear it. We counted down the 3 mins by looking at the time on the TV. We said right let's do this. Lo and behold, two strong lines!! I literally jumped up off the couch and jumped up and down, saying 'that's it, it's positive!' DH was beaming, we hugged, kissed, cried....hugged some more!

Deep down I had an inkling that it had worked, but on Friday morning, I woke up feeling very crampy and that had lasted the whole day which had planted doubt in my mind.

Anyway, I am still enjoying the lovely novelty of it. I am feeling very positive about it and allowing myself to think ahead if I want to. I'm determined not to carry the worries of my previous history with me. Positive vibes all the way!!!
