The test kit showed two pink lines, and it's Consumer Reports' second highest rated kit. So my wife does appear to be pregnant. She's never been pregnant before, and I've never gotten anyone pregnant before, so far as I know. So this is all very new to both of us, and I haven't a clue about what to do now other than to get her in to see a doctor as soon as I can and read What to Expect When You're Expecting from cover to cover as hastily but thoroughly as possible and then proceed from there.
I know that she could spontaneously abort the pregnancy, or we could decide to abort it medically if tests were to reveal good reason to, but otherwise we will have a baby and our lives WILL be different. And if I'm able to keep up this blog, I will no doubt devote an unreasonable amount of it to talking about what we're going through prenatally as well as postnatally. I can only hope that my faithful readers will grit their teeth and remain faithful throughout it all. For my part, I will try to make my posts at least half as interesting for you to read as they are for me to ponder and write, and I'm quite certain that this whole experience will supply considerable substance on which to nakedly reflect.
Billions of human beings have gone through what we're starting to go through now. But that was them, and this is US and OUR story unfolding here before your eyes.
