A few years ago when DH and I were building our family (covert terminology for having sex) there were a couple months where I was wondering "could I be?" I drove to the drugstore, ready take a test just to find out with a little more certainty.
Buying a pregnancy test was always a tricky thing. First, I would wait a suitable amount of time to be sure there was a REASON to take the test. Then, I had to convince myself to go to the store to buy the test, then I had to build up the guts to go ask a clerk to open LOCKED glass compartment that held these precious $15 sticks that could give me the answer, all while clutching my purse strap with my left hand up near my shoulder so the clerk would SEE the wedding ring. Ya know?
Well I took my son to the Dollar Store the other day so he could buy a little something with his allowance. Wandering around following a 5 year old clutching to the dollar her earned for finding the carpet under 12 inches of legos, race cars, stuffed animals and books, I couldn't help but notice right there on the aisle with the $1 hair brushes and car wax...$1 pregnancy tests! Dozens of them!
Holy cow! I would have peed on a stick every day for a month if I new it would only cost me a buck a piece.
