When I was very very small my older sister would always read me stories from these silly books and we would watch Tales From the Crypt. Needless not many things in this world scare me... Getting pregnant at this point for me would be probably be top of the small list of things that scare me. Two months ago I got an IUD put in b/c I just didn't want to have to worry at all about this subject. I had been using the Nuva Ring and I kept hearing horror stories. I'm hoping for a nice and easy 8 years before I have to think of birth control again.
That was until I started feeling ill. Likely it is just a side effect from the Paragurd and will just go away in a few weeks. They are doing metabolic tests and some other stuff just to make sure there isn't anything else going on. The nurse also asked me to test just in case. It was negative as I knew it would be. Just buying a test was surreal. Having dealt with infertility all I ever wanted was a positive and it never seemed to come. Today all I wanted was a negative! The guy at Target asked when I was checking out asked me "is this good news"? I just smiled and said nope just starting new medicine. I figured that would be more tasteful that stating, "oh heck no being pregnant would be a nightmare".
It was interesting Chris saw the test and I think freaked out in his own way but was sad in his own way as well when it was negative. Nevertheless once he thought about late nights, puke, and all the other things that come with babies he felt relieved and at peace. So unless you want to give us nightmares please don't ask... "are you pregnant?"
