August 2008 - Symptoms to lead us to believe we are Pregnant

The last two – three weeks of August 2008 I thought I had come down with a major stomach virus, lot of diarehha, exhaustion and nausea. Was hitting the medicine cabinet for over the counter drugs to try to cure my stomach virus. I was a bit stressed as well because I was dealing with issues with my son getting out of jail so both Sean and I were also thinking the stomach issues resulted from my stress levels.
The last week of the stomach virus it dawned on me I was late on my period because it was the end of the month and I had failed to start for that month and I could not kick the stomach virus. So Sean stopped off and picked up some EPT Certainty test and on July 28th, 2008, I took my first in home pregnancy test. The test came back positive showing I was pregnant.
I was nervous about taking the test as I had a feeling I was pregnant. I couldn’t even look at the results, I was sitting on the couch next to Sean, sort of behind him as he sat to the front of the couch and I was letting him read the results first. He cut his eyes back and me in a way that something was wrong and I screamed “What” and he showed me the test and it showed I was pregnant. We both were of course in total shock, but now we know why I was so sick.
I called and set up an appointment with an OBGYN for another pregnancy test through a clinic and to discuss the pregnancy risks at my age. My appointment is September 9th, 2008.
July 30th, 2008, we re-took the in home pregnancy test just to be sure and it came back with the same results, pregnant. I also told my mother & step dad, that day of my pregnancy.
