whew!!!!!!!!

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.

go figure.

anyway, that is enough info for a monday afternoon!

Girl, the same thing happened to me when my #3 was about your #3's age. Funny since we have the same doctor and thought we had taken care of things. I didn't call Margaret, I just bought a pregnancy test. I think I had gone like 48 days or something ... it couldn't be stress causing the delay I'm SURE!!! ;o) Dr. J says 1 in 400 will get pregnant after that procedure ... I'm sure she told you the same thing! Glad it was negative!

YIKES!!! I can't tell you how much money I've spent just for that peace of mind. I am glad you guys are doing well.
I wish I could take a home selling test to see if my house will sell in the next nine months. Wouldn't it be cool of all of life's questions were answered by peeing on a stick?!! I am all for that one. Lots of love to you Bricks.
