All this time, I’ve been using the cheap Dollar Store pregnancy tests… because you’re either pregnant, or NOT pregnant, right? So why spend $14 on a pregnancy test, when you can spend $1?
Well, here’s why:
I have a tendancy to see little pink lines that aren’t there. I convince myself that I can see a faint second pink line, and that leads to nowhere good. So this time around, I decided to splurge on the Clear Blue Easy pregnancy test… to leave NO DOUBT. It actually digitally spells it out: either PREGNANT, or NOT PREGNANT. It doesn’t get anymore clear than that.
Well I wasn’t prepared for how hard it would be for the test to scream at me… NOT PREGNANT! When those two words popped up on the screen, I literally said out loud, ‘well you didn’t have to say it like that.‘ I felt like the little pee stick was judging me, right there in the bathroom. And screaming profanities in my face about how I’m defective and barren, not worthy of living.
Didn’t the pregnancy test company think about how, instead of ‘Not Pregnant‘ they could have it say, ‘I’m really sorry,’ or, ‘you look really pretty today.’
