Seriously?

Normally, I am a very lazy person. I don't much care for cleaning and all that jazz. But lately, I have been feeling very productive. It is a very unsettling experience to actually WANT to clean something.

I have been spotted washing laundry and FOLDING it. Amazing! There is a rumor going around that I actually mopped the kitchen floor. Shocking! And according to my husband, I volunteered to change and wash all of the bed sheets. Scandalous!

In addition to all of this productiveness, one night I woke up feeling a little nauseous. The next night I woke up with hip pain. And the next day, I started to FREAK out. Have you ever seen that movie Idiocracy? No? Well, go rent it. Anyways, I was beginning to think that we were the dumb white-trash people with 12 kids from that movie.

So, I packed up my two BABIES and went to buy a home pregnancy test. Let me just say, those were the longest three minutes of the damn life. SERIOUSLY.

The test was negative.

Now let's all breathe a sigh of relief.

Yikes! I can see why the breathing wasn't top priority.

At least your laundry is done!

Oh you poor thing! I did something simiilar about 6 months after having my twins. I was so frantic that I couldn't wait until after work. I drove to mall that had a CVS and then beelined for the food court bathroom. I actually did my pregnancy test on the spot - couldn't even wait until I got back to the office.

Thank god it was negative.

Haveing 4 kids in less than 2.5 years has NEVER been on my to do list (actually - having 3 in 1.5 wasn't either...)

Prior to being pregnant I always cleaned, now I don't give a crap if the toilet is clean or not. It is liberating I must say.

Amanda said...

There must be a cleaning bug in the water your drinking!! haha!
Another baby wouldn't be all that bad though:)

Whoa! You don't want to try for 3 under 3? Just kidding!

Becks said...

I had a close call just like this a couple weeks ago. I couldn't decide if i would be excited or freaked out. Luckily it was negative. I want another one... just not yet!!!

Dooneybug said...

I'm laughing because you know that was me last month. A pregnancy scare is always that more frightening when you've had two under two.

Rachel said...

Before I got to the end of the post-I thought maybe you were pregnant. UGh thank goodness momma. Even though you love your babies, wow-that would be a lot.

Anyway, maybe it just is fall cleaning.

Z's Mom said...

Oh my.....I was thinking that as you kept going......hahaha.....

Steph said...

hahahaa, glad it is negative. I have a hard time cleaning...I hate it. I would love to hire someone to clean but can't justify doing as much. Suck...

ha ha ha. That's hilarious.

Eva said...

Congratulations on not being knocked up!

Melissa said...

Exactly! Congrats!

I would just DIE if I had another one right now. Mine are 11 and 9 and just the thought of going back aaaalllllll the way to baby is just too frightening for words.

chris said...

Good news... Breathe easy. :)

Mama Kalila said...

LOL - Congrats then I suppose. Those freak out thinking we're pg moments are fun aren't they? I had a dream I was the other night, so it's on my mind too... I prob won't write about it (or the test that I'll prob take in a few weeks lol) though because my MIL will go off on a tangent that I really don't wanna hear.

Insta-mom said...

I totally understand your relief. But at least if you were, you know you make cute babies.

Tabitha said...

I wish that I could catch that cleaning bug!! I make a start and then get fed up!!
Glad things turned out ok!
love and hugs XXXX
