The morning after a Trigger Shot, I'm supposed to take a home pregnancy test to make sure that the trigger shot worked. Not that I'm pregnant, but the test will come up positive because of the hormones released from the shot. When I got the result, I was to call the Dr's office - no later than 8:30am.
I set my alarm and got up at 8am on Wednesday, Sept. 21st. I peed on the stick and let it sit. I waited. And I waited. And I waited. The darned thing didn't do anything. I didn't get a positive. I didn't get a negative. I got nothing. So, I got on the phone and called the Dr's office. I offered to wait till I had to pee again and take a 2nd pregnancy test, but the nurse said I had to go to the hospital to have some bloodwork done as soon as possible.
Hubby and I headed to the lab at the hospital where I had bloodwork done "STAT." After that, I headed to work and waited to hear about the test results. Hubby must've been a little nervous as well because he called and texted me to see if I'd heard about the results yet. My co-workers asked me why I didn't just take another home pregnancy test and I had to explain that I couldn't "go" again before I had to call the dr. Believe me, I had already thought of that one!
The nurse called me later that afternoon and said that everything tested fine and I must've just had a "dud" test.
So after all that worrying, I was fine. So not only can I make a baby, but apparently I can't even pee on a stick the right way...
