Pin Of The Week- Not Crafty At All, But I Feel This Way About Pregnancy Tests

This one is likely not going to inspire you to craft or create or organize, but it definitely made me think, “That is SO true!”

For those reading from a phone who can’t read the text, it says “When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you, but because in that brief moment when the coin is in the air, you suddenly know what you are hoping for.”

And it made me think that’s EXACTLY what pregnancy tests do for me. If you ever want to know if you want to have a baby, take a pregnancy test. In the minutes it will take for that 2nd line to appear or not, you’ll know how you really feel.

At least I did.

Before I got pregnant with Kendall, we had an oops that made me think I could be pregnant. It wasn’t until I was waiting for that test to show the results that I knew that I would actually like the results to be positive. It wasn’t, but that next month we officially started trying.

And then, before Kendall was even 1, I worried one month that I could be pregnant, and there wasn’t an OUNCE OF WISH in my body that that test would be positive. Not one. I think I drank half a bottle of wine that night to celebrate the lone line that showed itself.

Agree? What’s your favorite pin of the week?

Sorry I still haven’t caught up with Pinterest invites from last week. If you are already in, would you mind inviting some folks for me? If you’re not, go ahead and leave your email in the comments section if you’d like an invite. Hopefully I or somebody else will have time to send you one soon.


  • Lynet Witty - this is SO SO SO true about pregnancy tests!!!ReplyCancel

  • Haley - WOW. I couldn’t agree more. I have to share this!ReplyCancel

  • Jacquelyn Moll - I never had that “coin in the air moment” with my first – my dr told me – LOL For the longest I called my pregnancy a “medical situation.”ReplyCancel

  • Jen @ a little barefoot blog - I’ve done the coin toss thing since I was a kid for EXACTLY that reason. it’s so true! And as soon as it lands one way or the other, you either feel happy or disappointed and then you know.

    I’ve never had to take a pregnancy test when I didn’t know what I wanted, though, so I can’t say I have related to that part.ReplyCancel

  • Danielle - For a minute… I thought at the end you were going to say you were pregnant… and I would have congratulated you along side of welcoming you to my insanity club!


  • Janine @ Alternative Housewife - I heard of that trick from my junior high boyfriend’s mom and always liked it. 🙂 It is definitely true of pregnancy tests.ReplyCancel

  • jenni from the blog - OMG, you have NO IDEA how often I say that! Not about a coin, but I ask people to choose for me {I mean, about anything I can’t decide on… even what cereal to eat in the morning, lol} and in the time it takes for them to pick one, I already know what I want. =)
