Imagine having four kids and you wake up at 3 A.M. just KNOWING you're pregnant again and wake your hubby up to tell him you’re pregnant with your fifth baby. Luckily, my husband was super excited! However, I wouldn’t recommend taking a pregnancy test that early in the morning, it makes it hard to sleep from the excitement.
We wanted to get a bit creative with how we told family and friends so we sent them this picture followed by our positive pregnancy test once they figured out the message!
Since we’d be seeing my dad on his birthday and we found out what we were having, I surprised him. We told him the news by buying him a dozen pink donuts. He loved this and we were excited to break the news to him this way (eating the donuts at the end wasn’t a bad deal either).
What It’s Like to Take Pregnancy Test
If you have ever taken a pregnancy test, you know the anguish that comes with it. You really don’t want to have second guesses, you want the answer to be right the first time. Many of you know that we’re pregnant with our fifth baby. I can tell you that it’s just as nerve-wracking the first time as it is the fifth time. As a veteran pregnancy test taker, I wanted to share some insight.
Get excited about it
No matter the result, try to have a positive experience. I like to play a little music and try to get myself pumped up about taking a pregnancy test. I also tell myself, no matter the outcome, it’s going to be okay!
Make sure you need to pee
Don’t waste a pregnancy test by only have a little pee. Make sure you really have enough pee to make the pregnancy test worth taking. I have taken a few in the past and wasted it because I only had a few dribbles. Trust me, it’s not worth wasting the precious pregnancy test!
Give it some time
I know the feeling of getting overly excited about taking a pregnancy test. However, it’s crucial that you have patience, while you take the test. I’m not one of the people that can sit there and stare at it until the results come. I literally need to leave the room and then come back in the allotted time.
Follow the directions on the test
Every woman who has taken a pregnancy test has tried to do her way. Just read the instructions and follow them. It will save you a lot of frustration, concern, and curiosity. When you follow the instructions, you will get the right results.
Use e.p.t, every time
As a veteran mom of soon to be five, I can tell you that using an e.p.t pregnancy test is totally worth it. When I think of e.p.t., I think of the quality. Simple to use with easy to read results. Plus, I love their new clean digital readings!
I need mention this because I’ve done it before. When I didn’t get the answer, I wanted out of a pregnancy test, I threw it away and then later dug it out. Don’t do this, because the answer will not be correct. You will need to take a new pregnancy test if this happens to you!
It's super convenient, too. I got my e.p.t. at my local Walmart while I was doing my weekly shopping!
So, what’s it like taking a pregnancy test? It can be nerve-wracking and exciting! Finding out I was pregnant for the 5th time was very exciting, especially since I know using e.p.t.was a very reliable way to find out I was expecting.

I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
