the results are in...

and I'm....

drumroll please...

stop trying to read ahead...

I'm...

are you ready?

Are you sure?

Okay...

I'm... not!

Yay!

Whew!  Huge sigh of relief.

This is the first time I've ever been relieved to see a negative pregnancy test.  And not cried.

But isn't it funny that no matter how badly I DO NOT want to be pregnant again, it's still a tiny bit sad to see that negative sign?

Don't get me wrong.  I am DONE.  Completely.  But there's just something about that motherly nature that makes me sad to know I will never be pregnant again.  Ever.

But it's also very relieving.

I'm so sorry for all the distress I've caused you.  I didn't think so many of you would actually think I was pregnant.  I did tell you we've been really careful, right?

But really, this was so fun.  I'll never get the chance to announce a pregnancy ever again, so this was kinda like my last chance to do that... even though I'm not.  It was so fun "seeing" you all wondering and  edgy and... well, angry at me.  I can handle it.  I guess I like to watch people suffer.

I'm sick, I know.

Now I just hope God doesn't think it would be funny to make me pregnant after posting this.  He does have a strange sense of humor sometimes.  Maybe I should just shut up now.

oh you are sick and twisted ;)
You know God has a sense of humor about these things, don't you?
...just sayin'

Wendi@Every Day Miracles said...

Hehehehe. :) You are a crazy lady. So glad I found you. Crazy ladies must stick together.
And I love that you are from Iowa. Because Iowa will always be home to me and when ever I hear the word "Iowa" my heart just sighs a little bit. :)

What? I was wrong? I can't believe I'm losing my touch! Guess ER won't be getting those twin girls, either...rats!

Wow...you're harsh and mean. I guess I've always known......That's all I've got.

Amy Kramer said...

God does have a sense of humor, so you BETTER WATCH OUT. And when you ARE pregnant with #4, none of us are going to believe you! :) jk
That was super fun! You're so awesome!! And I Know what you mean about that "negative sign". I took one a few months ago, and I was SO not ready to be pregnant again, but there was still a tiensy bit of disappointment. Us moms... we're so weird.

Amy@My Front Porch said...

HA! Katie...crack me up! I read this post before I read your other one, so I already knew.

FYI, there is such a thing as a false negative...just sayin' :)

peter marie said...

Man, I can't wait until you take another test next week and get a plus sign.

Elizabeth said...

Keep the faith, Sneaky! Keep wishing those twin girls on me. I think we should throw une autre mere a big baby shower anyway - maybe a mardis gras theme and we can charge $5...I mean $7, I mean $10....geez, sorry, I mean $20 per person. It will be fun!!!

Jenny said...

How very bratty, Katie, to keep us in SUCH suspense....and how very fun!!!! hahahahaha!!!! LOVE it. But take another test next week, okay? You might NOT have the last laugh.... ;0

The removed comment was an unintended duplicate of the first one. Embarrassing.

Oh, I am laughing so hard as I read your comments. It's nice to have friends who love me even though I'm sick and twisted.

But it's not so nice to have friends who are wishing babies on me. If I do end up with another one then guess who'll be watching my children while I have a nervous breakdown? That's right - Katie, Amy K, Amy P, Abby and Jenny! You all think you're so smart with your "false negative" comments. You can't fool me. There's no such thing.

Wait a sec... umm... actually, the more I think about it... I did have false negative tests with ALL THREE of my kids! Yikes!

Oh, and Liz, you're officially uninvited to any of my future Mardi Gras parties. Unless you'll provide the shrimp... ;)

And Jenny, it's okay... just keep posting and deleting comments on my blog - it just makes it look like I have a ton of comments so everyone will think I'm popular! :)

peter marie said...

Well, when you have such cute babies it's hard not to want to see what #4 would look like!

I nearly spit out my milk when I read the mardis gras comment. You've got some funny friends!

you know all you have to do to guarentee you don't have another is tell Chad to go and take care of the problem.

une autre mère said...

Ha, "Anonymous!" You really should've left your name because I thought that was pretty funny.

And just so ya know... Chad is going to "do his part"... we're just trying to fit it into his schedule. Looks like he might be having a different sort of "fun" this spring break...

Oh, and did you also know that even after that procedure, you can still get pregnant for up to 6 months after?!
