Oh, Honey, you shouldn't have!!!

In a fit of romantic fervor, my husband, Will, brought home a gift for me last Thursday after the embryo transfer.

I was overcome by his gesture of love. In fact, tears welled up in my eyes, because in his choosing of this gift, it was clear that my husband is one of the most considerate people I know. It was also clear that he truly knows me, inside and out.

You might be thinking Will brought me a bouquet of peonies, one of my favorite flowers... or that he brought home a bottle of my favorite Shiraz for one last toast. Or maybe you're guessing he brought me sweet strawberries dipped in Godiva chocolate.

You might be thinking any of these things, but you'd be wrong.

Will brought me a gift more attractive than any of these. He stood there, just inside the doorway, his arms outstretched. And when I saw what he held, I couldn't believe my eyes.

Twenty-five urine pregnancy tests.

That's right, twenty-five. That's enough for me to pee on until my little heart is content.

What a guy! (Although it also struck me that this gift is a little bit like buying a pyromaniac a jumbo box of matches. Still, thank you, Will!)

  1. That's fabulous! And also the absolute sweetest gift EV-ER :) Hope you enjoy!

  2. Love it!!! I wish I had that many right now - I started off with 4 and burned one to see if the trigger was out.

    I have no shame - I have spent hundreds on them and I will probably buy 20 or more to get me through the weekend.

    I am going to start on Thursday - when will you start?

  3. That's awesome! I love it.

    I take it you'll be testing... yeah! I'm so hopeful for you this time. I can't wait to see a BFP. Big time crossing fingers for you.

    Loved the warm weather too. Your Sundays of grace are awesome. Makes me think a lot.


  4. I may swoon. What a dreamy husband.

  5. Oh, better than a dozen roses!!! What a jewel of a hubby.

    Mo and Will, I'm sorry I've been such an absent commenter, but please know that I've been reading and supporting you over the past week. I'm rooting so hard for you and your Fab Five.

  6. LOL!!!! Great gift! Wishing it brings you lots and lots of good news!

  7. I think that is soooo sweet. How cute is he. You should be having lots of fun over there :o)

    I really wanted to NOT take any of those things but I admit I broke down and did it anyway. lol The first one I knew was way too early, then I refussed to take another one until my first blood test results came it. When they did I took it and we cried together. It was awesome.

    Good luck. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you that good news is coming soon :)

    BABY DUST!!!!!!!


  8. That is so great - I love a practical gift! I hope you get a BFP first time out and then go crazy peeing on each stick so you have all the positives for souveniers. hehehe

  9. Awwww! Sweet. And they look so fancy shmancy! So when is the first meeting of the NYC chapter of Pee on a Stick Addicts Anonymous? PeeAnon?

  10. That is so sweet....I'm sure most everyone reading your blog can COMPLETELY understand why this is the perfect gift.

  11. That's such a cute story. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and Will.

  12. Will, you know this is enabling. ;-)

  13. I love it! Your dear, sweet husband's thoughtfulness brought tears to my eyes. (Pregnancy hormones, perhaps!?) What a GREAT guy! Waaaay better than roses or chocolate any day. *hugs*

  14. Awesome your husband is simply great!

  15. I hope you get twenty positive pee sticks!

  16. Great gift, Will! Isn't it so wonderful when our men finally "get it?" You definitely need to keep him around. :)

    I've been thinking of you. I hope your 2 WW is moving quickly. Fingers crossed.

  17. Will is such a gem! Here's hoping you only need one :)

  18. What an enabler! That sounds like the best gift ever. I have HPT envy!

  19. Found your blog through Stirrup Queens, hope you don't mind if I follow along. =)

    I just had to crack up...I would *love* 25 pee sticks right about now, lol. Where did your (totally thoughtful and wonderful) husband find those anyway???

  20. What a wonderful gesture!!! A man who knows his wife, awesome!!! Looking forward to seeing a nice +++ on many of those sticks....
