Hey, late can happen for a variety of reasons...

But congrats just in case!

How late is she? There are OTC tests sensitive enough to detect pregnancy hormones within 3 days of conception.

Get some tests on the way home (they'll fit in your jersey pocket). She's not going to believe the first one, and will be looking for the 2nd one in a couple days. A false positive is unlikely unless she's on hormones...

waterrockets: almost every single pregnancy test sold nowadays comes with at least two sticks.

sub: let me know if I'm getting into too much detail here, but you're way more likely to get a false negative than a false positive from a name-brand test. And even the false negatives are rare.

jeez, look at what married life has turned me into.

I'll be talkin to her tonight about getting one. I would stop WR but I'd have to go miles out of the way. And it's already 42.5 to home. No more for me thanks.

From an old guy that has been down this road many times ...

... no matter what the result of the "test" is, it is good. Celebrate either outcome.

BTW, I was 41 when my youngest was born. You're not that old, are you?

Premature e-celebration, isuffer. let's wait for the test results to bust out the cigars. which nobody will smoke, because we're all pretentious bike weenies.

Finally, an excuse to post a picture of my six-year-old daughter in her first "race" (in the Juniors category of the Fiesta Island Time Trial, with her jersey that she picked out at the store the day before):

No word tonight. Some construction workers broke a main waterline to our neighborhood. No water. No toilet. No showers!!!

Oh, and her parents are here.


To clear a few things up as well;
I'm 38. So is my wife. We have two beautiful girls (8 & 12).

False negatives are even go down in chance the more days after the missed ".".

EPT only comes one in a package.

I would go check what my wife uses (that come in a 2-pack), but I think she'd start asking questions.

Does she keep a stockpile?

I bought three EPTs 16 weeks ago.
