I went to BlogHer back in July ready to get away from mommy and wife duties and just enjoy and relax solo time. Before I left I expected my period, but it was only a tiny bit late. Nothing to worry about, and I blamed it on stress. While in Chicago at the event I enjoyed a few glasses of wine and even did a wine tasting at the Expo there.
Everything was just peachy.
On the last day of the trip….
My bellybutton popped halfway out!
Of course I immediately suspected pregnancy.
And of course I’m kicking myself for drinking the wine, for not testing for pregnancy the first day my period was late… just berating myself. Then I realized that even if I tested the day my period was late, most tests wouldn’t have given me a positive anyway.
So I call John and I’m like….”I’m pregnant.” He’s says “did you take a test?” I said “no, but my bellybutton popped out.” He was silent then said “…oh.”
Did I sound crazy? Maybe I was crazy. Bellybuttons can pop out all the time…..right? LOL
I ended up testing as soon as I got home and got a positive…..but had to guesstimate how far along I was until I was able to get to the doctor.
Clearblue now has a pregnancy test with a weeks estimator built right in. It’ll tell you not pregnant, pregnant 1-2 weeks, pregnant 2-3 weeks and pregnant 3+ weeks. How useful is that?!
The Clearblue Weeks Estimator can be found at your local CVS or my favorite way of shopping….online….at CVS.com.
Can I just say I wish I had this when I found out I was pregnant with Rohan. Remember? I was testing all the time, and getting conflicting info from the doctor…positive test at home, negative test at doctor…wtf?! Then after the blood test the pregnancy was finally confirmed. It would have been nice to have this test back then to avoid that stress and worry!
After I pop out this little one, I know I’m never getting pregnant again, but if I did I’d be using the weeks estimator from Clearblue to know exactly where my pregnancy stands the minute I find out I’m baking up a baby in there.
