So the waiting is over (worst 2 weeks in a while!) and this morning we got our first ever positive pregnancy result.
I don’t know whether its because I’m a man or because I’m very non-emotional and ‘scientific’ but even though my partner was sure the vague, faint red line in the positive window was a certain ‘+, I remained to be convinced. It took a phone call to the clinic to reassure me (pluse 5 test kits – all showing the same result!). I had predicted beforehand that I wouldn’t be able to tell for sure what the result meant and so it proved. Its amazing that a small, very simplistic piece of plastic could confuse me so much given that I work in a hi-tech field for a living!
So a whole new ball game starts today and while we know that being pregnant is absolutely NO guarantee that we will have a child in 9 months, its a start and it proves that we are at least capable. Some questions have been answered in the last few months!
