In waiting to let the big news come out, I've decided to start blogging to quell my urges to scream it from the rooftops...
Finding this out was not as black-and-white as we have thought it would be. We thought that Nickie would just pee on a stick and either we'd get one line or two. Not really the case....
Being 2 women, I feel like we sometimes have that objective side to say things like, "You're not due for your period for 4 more days, so don't bother yet." We're both emotion-driven women, who are also a bit impatient.
So we tested 9 days after ovulation. Here's what we got on October 23rd:
Well, we looked at it, and looked at it. We swore there was SOMETHING... so I started playing with it on Photoshop and got this:
There's definitely a line, but was it REALLY a line? Do lines that need Photoshop count as lines?
Moving onto October 24th...we got another almost-but-not-really line. More photoshop intervention got us this:
There's SOMETHING there. Is that it?
Still not sure...
By Sunday, October 25th, both of us were totally over using the line tests. I had class that Sunday. I didn't hear or retain a single bit of class content that morning; it was research class, so I'm too upset, trust me. Anyways, on the way home from class, I picked up a digital test.
She went upstairs.
She covered the test.
She brought it downstairs.
And we waited...
Waiting those 5 minutes seemed like eternity. When it was finally time to check it, I pulled the test out and it looked like this:
Then we looked like this:
And there was much rejoicing. =)
"Nugget" is due July 8th, 2010. Everyone says it's a girl, so I say "boy" to be different.
Here's his/her big debute, done last week! (Thanks, Meghan!)
Is it a baby? Is it a bean? Is it an alien? Not too sure, but we'll assume the first answer until proven differently.
We're absolutely thrilled and can't wait for Nugget to make their appearance!
Has it really (almost) been a year?
