This is about taking the test.
Seriously, I took the test on a friday morning. I was bored. The baby father was on vacation. I only took the test because I bought it a couple of years ago and got on my period right in the moment I wanted to take it. I took it because it was going to expire soon. I didn’t expect it to come out as positive, I really didn’t, I took the test a couple of days BEFORE I expected my period to come.
My first reaction was me laughing out loud. I went to a drug store immediately to buy a second test. I even googled if a positive test can be negative too. I even went to my gyn to ask about it.
After I took the second test, which turned out as positive too, I went to my work. I took out my phone and sent a whatsapp message to the baby father, who wasn’t my boyfriend by this time. We were seeing each other for almost 1,5 years, but we never made it official. His reaction made me cry. He told me he didn’t want the baby and I have to terminate. So I sat there- crying at work. My boss asked me what happened and I told him. He told me the same thing the baby father told me. From the first moment I knew I was pregnant, I knew I’m going to keep my baby, wether he’s leaving me alone or not.
One day later, I left for vacation with friends. I didn’t tell anyone, even when they asked me why I’m not drinking, I just responded that I just don’t feel like it.
When I came back from vacation 10 days later, I got fired from my job. I just agreed on taking 6 months off from my study to earn money. All bad things that could happen, happened to me. So I had to figure out what to do. I couldn’t talk to the baby father because he had a girl from France over, another ‘friend with benefits’.
I immediately contacted my university to delay my break from school. And let me tell you, everything worked out fine in the end and the baby father isn’t the asshole I thought he is.
Mommies, tell me about the experience you had when taking your pregnancy test.
