Don't I look young???? EEK!
I will never forget the moment I found out I was going to be a Mom for the first time. I was 25, just came home from work and realized I hadn't started my period. I took out the test, peed and was SHOCKED when I saw those two lines show up.
I hollered at Jeremy, he came in and we cried. We were so excited, so thrilled.
I still have the tests I used when I was pregnant with Emma.
18 months later, I took another test. This time it was on our 2nd Anniversary. After having our hearts broken just a short month and a half earlier, we found out it we going to start healing with another baby. I still have those tests too.
Two more babies came, and more tests. And since I can't take just one (because what if it is a fluke, what if it is a false positive? Yeah, I know those don't happen very often...but....and really, who doesn't like peeing on a stick and watching magic happen?)
So, 4 babies* later, I have a lot of pregnancy tests in my bathroom cupboard. When we moved Jeremy asked me if he could throw them away. I almost throttled him. I fought the urge however and just said, "NO WAY!"
Obviously those are not the only keepsakes I have from those magical times. I have sonogram pictures, sonogram videos, lots of stretch marks and pictures. These are all things that mark a magical time in my life. But I think that the pregnancy tests are the most meaningful because they represent the moment I really knew. The second I found out that there was a little life growing inside of me. They represent me becoming a Mother over and over (and over and over) again.
So I guess the folks at EPT have caught wind of my crazy pregnancy test keeping (and maybe a few other Moms do it too) because they are making a keepsake case for those wonderful little urine soaked sticks.
Pretty cool huh? I am so glad that someone has finally made a nice way to keep these instead of in a box under the bathroom sink!
When was the moment you knew? What keepsakes do you have from your pregnancies? And more importantly, did you keep your tests???
*4 babies...and I am definitely planning on using this case for baby #5 as soon as it happens!
