What if you see someone you know? What if you run into your boyfriend’s mom? What if you run into your arch-nemesis or the mean girl from school? There are so many what ifs!
I’ve bought tests for myself and for my friends, and it’s still scary every time!
Here’s what buying a pregnancy test is really like:
So you’re late.
You’re freaking out.
Do I tell him I’m late? No, no, get a test first. Calm down.
Call your best friend for support.
She says she’ll get one for you.
But you can do this alone.
You research the drugstore that’s furthest away from everyone you know.
Then you venture to drugstore.
You look at the bazillion choices of tests. What do you even get? Do you get two? You should get two. THERE ARE TOO MANY OPTIONS.
Walking to the register feels like it takes a decade.
You try not to even make eye contact.
When you leave, you’re like:
Phew! You bought it.
But now you have to go take it.
Have you ever bought a pregnancy test for either you or a friend? What was it like? Did you run into anyone? Tell us in the comments!
