I can remember clearly the emotions and feelings I had each time that I ventured into the bathroom to see what the magical stick would have to say for my family’s future.
I have had the joy and pleasure on four different occasions of seeing the magic little stick confirm what I already knew in my heart – soon we would have a child to love, know and guide. Seven years later, we have three kids whom we are having a blast watching grow and learn and one baby we can’t wait to meet in heaven.
One thing that we experienced during our last pregnancy was an uncertainty of just how far along we truly were. My usually monthly particulars were not the same that month, or the month before. I doubted whether I was 4 or 8 weeks along. I didn’t want to be embarrassed at the midwife’s office and show them just how much I didn’t know my body. I wished at the time there had been something that could have helped me determine this on my own. So, I was very excited to hear about Clearblue Advanced Pregnancy Test with Weeks Estimator.
While I didn’t have it to help me in my moment of need and I ultimately discovered the truth with an ultrasound, I am excited for the many other women that will be able to use this product and have the knowledge and insight I missed out on. This new Clearblue product not only provides women with the clear answer of whether they are pregnant, but now also helps give an estimate of the number of weeks they are pregnant, providing more information right at the beginning of their pregnancy (an already uncertain and emotional time).
