I recently had to take a business trip to Chicago and there was a lot of thought behind getting ready for it. I feel like as a moms, we are always on – Planning, Prepping and Delivering. Well getting ready for this trip was no different, and so I went into full planning mode. How am I going to pump while away? Where will I store the milk? How will I get it back home? These were just some of the questions I had. I had a car adapter so I could use the rental car if needed to pump, the hotel had a refrigerator for storage, and I had a way to keep the milk cold – so I felt like I had my basis covered. So on I went.
October 2014 I remember waking up one morning with mild pain in my side. It felt like the menstrual-type pain that I was used to getting every month. But, this time around was different because I was not menstruating—and I was two weeks past due. Once I got in to work that day, I decided to go to the local CVS by my job and buy a pregnancy test.
