I took the test.
The results window of the pregnancy test was stark white. Not pregnant. Of course not. I knew that.
Yesterday, as I was driving home from work, I started having the familiar feeling of those pre-mentrual twitches. I was pretty sure my period would start. And then, nothing. Again, today I felt those familiar feelings again on my drive home, except they were stronger and felt like for sure I my period would arrive. But then, still nothing.
I was actually reluctant to take the test tonight. I wanted to return it to Tar.get. but we can't find the stupid receipt. Finally, Babe bribed me with happy hour tomorrow night, just so that we would know. Like me, he also liked not knowing for sure because then there was still some slight hope for a miracle pregnancy. Though deep down, I knew it was wishful thinking. So I took the test, and I know for sure I am not pregnant. I am a little disappointed but relieved to know.
Looking at my calendar, as of today, I am 17 days late. And still no sign of my period. I'm still blaming it on my new job and change in schedule. Anyone else experienced this, with a period being this late?
