Is this really happening?

We've been waiting for 3 years to see 2 lines. I had resolved myself to the what I deemed a fact, that we just would never get pregnant. That I would never see 2 lines on that damn stick. And yet yesterday I did. It was such a shock that I carried that stick with me to pick up my husband. And I handed him the stick that I had peed on less than 20 minutes ago.

Two lines. Clear as day, there were two pink lines.

And today, just in case, I took another test.

Two lines.

Hello little poppy seed. Smile

Wow! Congratulations! My husband and I are married for about the same time. We have not used any contraception at all and are still working on it. What advice could you give me?

If you haven't both been checked out for fertility issues I would start there. My hubby has a varicocele that was surgically corrected a couple of years ago. We were starting off at a disadvantage.

I did the whole temperature thing and ovulation sticks, but that was as far as I took it and honestly after a year of that I was losing my mind.

We made the decision at Christmas that if we weren't pregnant after one year of my husband starting a new job we would adopt. Essentially, we let it all go.

I tested positive on 3/17 and was absolutely shocked. I think we finally got rid of the stress of life at just the right moment.

Good luck to you!
