5. HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE PREGNANT? After trying for almost 1 and half years, Jason and I went grocery shopping one September evening. While on the lady item isle Jason grabbed a pregnancy test and tossed it in the cart. I almost started crying and put it back on the shelf. I told him I couldn’t possibly see another negative, and I was done taking tests. He put it back in the cart and said he had a feeling. So when we got home I went and took the test and then started putting groceries away (after I washed my hands, don’t worry). I was sitting on the couch watching tv when Jason asked me what it said. I had forgotten all about it! I went into the bathroom, looked and almost passed out! It was positive. I was sure I had done something wrong. Jason said he already knew after I showed him.
