It was December of 2007, right smack during the holidays. We were visiting my folks and I was feeling different. I walked into the bathroom in my mother’s house with a full bladder and a pregnancy test. I tinkled on the stick and then waited. I didn’t peek, but I really wanted to. When the time was up, I looked at the stick and then I knew. I was pregnant. What?! I walked out into the living room where my husband was and I calmly said, “I’m pregnant.” He laughed and didn’t believe me because I said it like it was no big deal. Then when I kept standing there, he said something like, “Wait, are you serious?!” And I was, I was totally serious. I was pregnant!!! I peed on a bunch of other sticks just to make sure I really was pregnant and they all told me I was, but that’s pretty much all they could tell me. I had to wait what felt like an eternity until I could go see my doctor to find out more like how far along I was.
When I think about it 2007 was not that long ago, but now, if you pee on a stick and you are pregnant, it can give you an estimate of how far along you are. What?! I would have loved to know that when I peed on all those sticks. Not all at home pregnancy tests can do it, but the new Clearblue Advanced Pregnancy Test with Weeks Estimator can estimate how many weeks pregnant you are. It’s nuts, in a good way. The test is digital and displays the results in words that you can clearly read, such as: Not Pregnant; Pregnant 1-2; Pregnant 2-3; Pregnant 3+. It’s able to estimate how far along you are in your pregnancy by measuring the levels of the hormone hCG. Welcome to the future my friends!
Have you seen this test? Have you used it? If you have, I would love for you to share your experience with it in the comments. Keep in mind that if you do tell me your story, it may get shared anonymously outside of the blog by the folks at Clearblue.
I think this test is so awesome it almost makes me want to get pregnant again. Almost.
Check out how the test works!
