Seeing the Two Red Lines of a Pregnacy Test for the First Time

November 25, 2014

My breast were sore weeks before my scheduled period (Yes, scheduled. I'm always regular and on the spot with my period), I was having mild gastritis attacks (or so I think I was, because I've been diagnosed with mild GERD), I was craving food (but I always am craving sour, and spicy food days before my period arrive) Everything seemed to be normal except for one itsy-bitsy tiny thing....I'm 3 weeks delayed.


Duhn! - Dun!- Duuuhhhn!!!

I haven't told my partner that I'm already having thoughts about being pregnant because I wanted to know for sure first before I really start panicking. So, I dashed to the nearest mall and went to Watsons Drug Store and grabbed one Blue Cross Pregnancy Test and met up with my man at the cinema. 

We were scheduled to watch Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 today. I was feeling very anxious and nervous sitting and emptying my bottle of water while he opened a bag of chips and when I told him that I'll just go to the toilet to pee. I stood up, grabbed my bag and went straight to the toilet. My hands were shaking while ripping the box. This is not the first time that I'm doing a pregnancy test, I've always done it and it always showed me 1 red line, always just 1 red line. I took a deep breathe and started to pee on the stick, waited for about 10 seconds or more and took a peek at the pregnancy test.

Why does this shows two red lines? 

My hands were shaking uncontrollably 
Is this thing broken?

I snatched the instruction manual inside the box and read it carefully: (even though I already knew what it meant)

One line = negative
Two lines = positive

Stop being silly! It's idiot proof!

It's positive...I felt like I was about to burst into tears. I hold on to the pregnancy test and went back to my seat. The only word I was able to say was "Honey..." and handed him the pregnancy test. I am lost for words. I don't know what to say and feel. I just want to cry, but I can't. He looked closely and once he realized what the pregnancy test says, he immediately wrapped his arms around me and hugged me tight and told me "Don't worry, everything is going to be okay. You don't have to worry about anything. I love you so much!"

I didn't say another word, I just nodded. For the entire duration of the movie my mind was floating somewhere. I am so scared. Seriously I have to repeat the movie.

The movie ended and we just strolled in the mall. He was very caring and sincere, I have to say something. "I have to tell mom tonight" I said. He told me that he needs to tell his parents too tonight. We both agreed and he took me home. I told him to keep the pregnancy test because I don't want it around me tonight. I went to my room, crying while holding on to my phone, waiting, just waiting for the moment to Viber my mom who's working in Vietnam and tell her that I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive.
