A pregnancy test is basically the only kind of test you can pass without studying (but sometimes it still involves an "all-nighter"). While a passing grade you were not "expecting" is usually something to celebrate, your excitement mileage may vary depending on life circumstances and the extent to which Impostor Syndrome has already taken over your life.
A pregnancy test is also the only test that's socially acceptable to pee on that also guarantees you will pee a little every time you sneeze for the rest of your life. It's natural to be nervous, and this is a collection of honest-to-goodness pregnancy reactions that race through a woman's mind the moment the strip turns pink.
25 You start to wonder how many tests you should do, you know JUST TO BE SURE.
What if the first three were false-positives?
24 How is he going to react?
He's going to be excited, right?
23 What if he's not as excited as I am?
Are we supposed to selfie now? Pics or it didn't happen, I guess.
22 And then you realize you are only going to get bigger from here.
21 And life is about to become a complete circus.
20 Is this a joke?
It's not a very funny prank. Pregnancy is no joke. DOES IT LOOK LIKE I'M LAUGHING?
19 Maybe if I shake it a little, the result will change!
18 So I guess the theme for our upcoming wedding is going to be "shotgun."
Just what I always wanted.
17 How am I going to tell my mom?
16 How are my friends going to react?
Will they be jealous?
15 What do you even do with a baby?
14 I don't feel qualified for this!
I'm not responsible enough to be a mom!
13 This is exactly what they warned us about in sex education!
Was that an open book test or something?
12 I was still holding out hope for the stork being real.
I guess that ship has sailed!
11 Kids are so expensive!
How am I going to pay for this?
10 And it's going to come out WHERE?
9 And I have to stop drinking for HOW LONG?
8 I'm not really enough of a grown up for this situation.
7 Is it time to panic yet?
I'm panicking, anyways. This is definitely the perfect time to panic.
6 Maybe I'm not ready for a second kid after all.
Is ANYBODY ever truly ready for a second kid?
5 I'm not ready, I mean I can't even remember to put leftovers back in the fridge.
4 My sleep-in days are now numbered.
3 I guess we shouldn't have made balloon animals out of the condoms.
That was a miscalculation. They were pretty cute, though!
2 If I stop screaming long enough, I can just about hear the GPS of my life saying "RECALCULATING!"
1 This was not in my 5 year plan. Like at all!
Whether it was part of your plan or not, hopefully you got the laughs you were "expecting." Congratulations!
