after a brief call to the nurse at my doc's office i was encouraged to take a home pregnancy test.
yes, you read correctly. #3 is not yet 4 months old. i took drastic steps to prevent this sort of thing from happening. nevertheless, at the advice of nurse margaret i spent $7 and a tense 30 seconds in the bathroom.
it was negative. praise God. now, i am not one to pray against babies. and if God thought it fit to add another brick to this house we would adjust. however that is NOT my immediate plan. i told mr brick AFTER i got the negative results. he was not near as freaked out as i was.
anyway, that is enough info for a monday afternoon!
