Surprise! Surprise!

Well, I got back from Singapore yesterday and had been feeling REALLY tired all the time. Yesterday afternoon, I slept from 1pm to 6:30pm and practically jumped out of bed realising that I was going to soon be late to pick Laetitia up. Anyways, I went to bed at a regular time and this afternoon, I was smashed again. I had a shorter nap this time of about 3 hours or so. On top of this tiredness, I had no appetite for food too. Well, I thought it was all due to the jetlag initially.

As I was talking to Etienne this evening, I jokingly said that had I not known better, I would say that I am pregnant going by by I have been feeling over the last two days. And he joked back saying he will request for a DNA check for the baby since we have been apart for the 15 days I was away in Singapore. So, just before going to bed and as I was getting ready (which includes going to the toilet to pee) I thought to myself that I should just check to be sure. I have a stash of pregnancy test kits since we have been trying (or rather not preventing) for the last 6 months or so. I took the test but flippantly left it aside while I continued to take off my contact lense, wash my face, slap some cream on etc. When I was done, I took a look at the test and OMG! I literally said "OMG! This can't be?!" I walked out to the living room where Etienne was and I said something along the lines of "You won't believe it......" So, there we had it, TWO BRIGHT RED lines.

One reason it did not cross my mind that I could be pregnant is that by my calculation, I was supposed to be ovulating when I was in Singapore and not before BUT I guess I was wrong. This is seriously the work of God. No, I am not saying we did nothing. Of course we had made love before I went off to Singapore but the timing! It is all wrong according to my "calculations" but I guess God's timing is always right. :p
