So I left the test which Tom & I affectionately refer to as "the pee stick" on the bathroom counter. It is still there. Tom keeps asking me when I am going to throw it out. I patiently explain that I need to keep reminding myself that I am pregnant. Besides I put it on my side next to my sink. And I am sure all of the actual urine has evaporated by now. Eeew. That is kind of gross. But you know what? I don't care. I'm keeping it as long as I wanna.
