My last pregnancy test

I have just done what I believe to be my last pregnancy test. The makers of Clear Blue Easy are certainly going to notice a decline in their sales (would definately recommend that brand to anyone who is in the market for a preg. test- easy to use applicator that turns pink when enought urine is collected, clear results five days before your period is due, and who can resist their marketing campaign- "the nicest peice of technology you'll ever pee on" - because it undoubtedly is, handles well, great curves. It was an honor to have peed on it. I purchased a test today, "just for fun" because my period isn't due til Monday, anyways. But low and behold, wonder of wonders, if that test didn't turn positive!! Imagine my reaction. I thought for sure that I wouldn't get pregnant on this cycle, what with my period being so screwy lately. But I guess I was wrong about that. So YAY!! Even more exciting is the fact that we don't need to do it anymore so I invite y'all to call me now again anytime- but not after ten because a woman in my condition must get plenty of rest.
But even as the shock and excitement settles in, so too does another feeling. Tonight I was pushing Payton on the swings at the park, and I thought- "another five years of pushing swings". And then I was washing her hair in the bath, and I thought "another five years
of washing hair and buying bubble gum flavored toothpaste".

What have I done? But it will be good, and this I know just as surely as I know... well, anything, like who shot JR for example. When the time comes I will only be too happy to do all of those things all over again. One more time.

I am officially three weeks and four days pregnant. Wish there was a zero after that three, but unfortunately- that's a LONG way off for me right now. I suppose we'll get there, one day at a time, one pound at a time, one craving at a time. The due date will be April 9th according to my calculations, so that should be a perfect time to have a baby. Well, anyways, guess I'd better sign off. It's after ten and I must take to the bed. Just wanted to let you all know. Peace out.
