I took the pregnancy test first thing this morning. It’s Clear Blue Easy, which is this very hi-tech digital thing, battery and all. I can’t say that I was at all surprised when it said Schwanger. John was downstairs and I said, “Uh, I think maybe you should come up here.” It was quite unreal. I called Beth later in the day and told her I needed the name of her doctor. She offered to call and try to make an appointment for me because she thought it might be tough to get in without a referral. She ended up getting me an appointment for Friday, at the same time as her English high tea. I suppose that finding out if I am really pregnant is far more important than drinking tea and gabbing with the girls, right?
I passed on the good news to all of the parents and in-laws this evening. Actually, I told them that I had taken a pregnancy test and that “Ich bin schwanger,” but none of them got it. Then I said, “Well, it’s either schwanger or nicht schwanger, so what do you think it means?”
I know how many things can go wrong in the first few weeks and it is too early to know what is going to happen, but it’s hard not get excited!
