Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri



Yea, I knew that title would get your attention.  So, I have a story to tell you.

One cold January morning, just a few months ago, I felt funny.  All you moms who have been pregnant know what I'm talking about.  I was sore in places that I've never been sore before UNLESS I was pregnant.  But, I knew I couldn't be.  Scarring has left me unable to get that way.  Or rather only a .001% chance of ever getting that way.  So, since the girls and I were heading to Wally World, I thought I'd stop by THAT section that all infertile women avoid.  The one that makes you want to grab up 25 tests "just in case".  There was one single test on sale for $3, the same brand I used not too long ago, which came up positive very early on in my pregnancy.  Yep, 3 simple dollars.  So, I grabbed it, along with my other items, swooped Eva and Joy up and headed for the check out.  After that, we headed straight to the little girls room.  I did my test right there.  While I waited my 3 minutes, I took care of Eva and Joy's needs.  I looked at the test.  Behold, there were 2 lines!

I was in total shock!  Ten years of trying to conceive on my own and it happens right before I get on a plane to China to adopt child #6!  How can I do this?  Mike will have to travel.  I'll be on bed rest for the last half of my pregnancy (preterm labor issues).  How will I school all of the children?  How can I bond with Ivy while lying on my back all day and night?  What if I have to be in the hospital for months?  I need to call my doctor!  Let me look at those directions again!  So, I grabbed the box and re-read the results.  First window meant I did the test correctly.  Second window meant negative.  Third window...  Third window?  When did they add a third window?  There was not a third window the last time I did a pregnancy test.  Two lines always meant positive!  Third window with a line meant positive.  There was no line in that third window.  So, I chucked that $3 pregnancy test in the trash and headed home with my sweet girls to my sweet family and waited on TA for my sweet Ivy.

Oh gracious no Cheri! You are FINE! LONG story, it's all good though. I don't think I should cry and blog at the same time...I think it makes me say too much. Speaking of... I read Ivy's entire adoption last night. You owe me one tube of mascara and about 4 hours of sleep. Please remit payment. Thank you. Sonia.
PS The pregnancy story cracked me up..I'm with you, 3 lines?!! What on earth?!


Wow you had me going for a minute!!!

I've also never heard of the three windows!! Whatever next!!

That was a great story, and I really needed a smile. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, my word, I would have been shocked too!! That is too funny - I was just at the store tonight and walked by the pregnancy tests, feeling a tiny little "oh, never again" sentimental something. It was gone quickly.
Plus, I would have to do an awful lot of explaining should I end up pregnant ;-)


I think my eyes bugged out at that title and my stomach had butterflies! LOL I have never heard of the three window test as well. How confusing and I can totally see where you would have thought you were pregnant. I would have to and then my doctor would have had to explain why he didn't really take my uterus out! ;)


Hilarous! Thanks for the laugh.
