The Pregnancy Scare

The pregnancy scare...

Positive Pregnancy Test - Pregnancy

If you're married or sexually active you probably know what I mean.

I really hate dealing with it. So I had my period back in the end of August, right? Yea so granted I have a pretty regular cycle you would think I'd get it again at the end of September, correct? Wrong.

Guess how late I was.

Just guess.

2 WEEKS. That has never happened before. So after the first few days I'm thinking hey no big deal. Then the first week passes and I'm thinking "oh crap, what if I'm pregnant?" Even though I technically have a .001% chance of getting pregnant...

Babies are wonderful. Really, they are. But I have a work and school and other things to do right now let alone have a little child take over my existence. Sigh. I always pray to God, "Oh God, please don't grant me the blessing of a child just yet because I personally don't feel ready. But if you're going to grant it anyhow please please please make me content with it. Ameen."

Anyhow, I found my my mom and sister were all 2 weeks late too which made me feel a LOT better. Thank God I just got my period yesterday. Woo hoo!

In other news I finally started using tampons. A word of the wise to pad-users, tampons are so freaking amazing! Pads feel so uncomfortable and like diapers for reals. With tampons, you just put 'em in and move on with life. Its amazing!

LOL uhhmmn the last bit is a little tmi but maybe cuz I don't use tampons! Lol but OMG I know exactly how you feel. I got the pregnant scare twice LOL. Alhamdulillah you are not though! Although I'd definitely love to see yo babies ;)

And to anonymous up there: in islam, using a tampon doesnt mean you've lost your virginity (although it seems like it does since a LOT of Muslims believe it/practice this idea--- it's only a cultural thing and boy am
I glad my parents didn't believe that!!) In Islam, you are a virgin as long as you have not engaged in any sexual activity, which is not just limited to insertion of the youknowwhat in the youknowwhere. Oral sex is also considered a form of sexual intercourse that can devirginize ( don't even know if that's a word lol) both man and woman. Basically - don't try ANY form of sex before marriage lol.

Hope that helped.

hahahahahahahha!!! Sorry... I'm cracking up on the last statement about tampons.

But I can only imagine how terrified you may have been. It is scary to think, when you feel so unready something like a pregnancy may come along. But I think that when it happens, it's because you are ready for it.
