The Saga of taking the test....

So a certain someone woke up at 3 am. She goes to pee. Of course this would be the first "morning pee". IF the unnamed person were going to test... they should do it now. Of course they remembered that the tests were not upstairs... Given the dire need to test in secret... they took a cap off a body spray and peed a little mid-stream in it. Classy right?
Then they go downstairs cap of pee in hand to find the diaper bag where they hid the tests after purchase so nobody would see them. OF course the diaper bag is nowhere to be seen. So they go out to the car in their pj's with the cap of pee still in hand to search for the tests. After rifling through the diaper bag and finally dumping all it's contents... the test is not there.
Where can it be? Dh took the baby yesterday and the diaper bag! Did he find the test? What did he do with them?
So back upstairs to quietly look in every inch of the bathroom. Not in the drawers, cabinets, or medicine cabinet! Cap of precious pee still in hand... the unnamed person heads back down stairs. They had bought groceries so maybe the tests somehow ended up in the kitchen. So they are not in the kitchen. She can't however reach the top cupboard to rummage through that. So still trying to be quiet rather than go outside and into the garage to get a stool... She climbs on top of the dryer and looks in the pantry cupboards above the washer and dryer. Nothing. Then she quietly takes a chair from the dinning room into the kitchen to look in the cabinets above the fridge.
So she thinks maybe while refilling the diaper bag her Dh found them... So every diaper on the changing table is moved around in hopes of finding the test. Finally into the Livingroom... she see shopping bag on the floor ... There it is 1/2 sticking out from under the couch! Nope... it's an errant bag with just 2 things of printer ink. She puts it on the couch and sees... something behind the couch cushion... could it be...YES her 2 tests!
Uh Oh... she has somehow lost her cap of pee! Back into the kitchen, she finds it safely sitting on the dryer. So the pee goes on to the test and the cap is washed. Hands are washed. Wait wait wait... Negative.
And that is how you waste 1 hour in the middle of the night only to leave the test on the top of the trash and the wrapper on the counter.

Re: The Saga of taking the test....

I once peed into a dixie cup and put it in the fridge on a paper plate (because I've read that was refrigerating pee slows down the degradation of HCG) and ran to the store to get pregnancy tests.

I found out I was expecting my oldest that day, so it was worth it

Of course...And he says "So... that's a negative? " and then "How did you find them? I hid them behind the cushion because I had DS bring me diapers and I didn't want him to see them yesterday?"

Of course it's not a real "NO"... I tested early because I didn't want to wait till Monday. I didn't want to tell him results one way or the other on April Fool's Day.

I think I'm done testing. I'll just wait till I feel the urge to push before I test.

As if he has no clue how persistent a woman can be when she wants to know if she's pregnant yet.... I bet he was just waiting for you to come asking if he has seen them!!

Lol, mama. Men just don't get it, do they? Your story cracks me up, though, because I would totally do the same thing :-)

Haha. Thanks for the entertaining play by play. Fwiw, 2nd morning urine gave me the best results. I had a ton of the cheap wondfo tests and I liked seeing that BFP, so I kept testing.

From the phone.
