We’re not pregnant

…nor did we really think we were, but the constant nausea over the last few weeks made us second guess our wishful thinking.

We got the clear to close on the house tonight which means that our mortgage went through and now all that needs to be done is to sign the contracts. This is fantastic news for us and tomorrow may be the day we are awarded the key to our new home. Phew.

So to celebrate, we drove over to Stop and Shop so that Sean could pick up some beer, and while we were there I decided to pick up a pregnancy test. And oooh, we bought I Cant Believe its not Butter and some English muffins.

Here we are at the counter, ready to buy our treasures, and I notice that we didn’t buy pregnancy tests, we bought ovulation tests. Noooooo! So I rip the ovulation tests off the belt and run across the store like Forrest Gump to pick up the right test.

I came back to the line and slammed the pregnancy test down matter-of-factly as Sean laughed. The 16-year-old cashier blushed and rushed through our order. I’m not sure if he was thinking “These people are buying beer and pregnancy tests! Get out of my line sinners!” or “Wow, they’re going to have a good night”.

We giggled at his adolescent reaction.

Sean’s response as we left the store, “We should’ve bought whipped cream.”

  2. Ah, you should’ve emailed me. I still have two tests left from when I got pregnant – I didn’t believe I was pregnant so i kept taking the test over and had two leftovers. 😉

  3. I think the cashier was thinking you were going to have a good night. Good luck with the closing!
