So, DH was reading his farming newspaper as he sat next to me. I glance over and an ad catches my eye. Now I don't have it in front of me so I'm working off of memory. Basically it boasted a new method for determining bovine pg. This new method is non-invasive and embryo safe. My curiosity got the better of me. Umm, what was the old method, the invasive one? Oh, DH said, rectal palpitations. Oh, brother. Could you imagine if this was our pg test? I don't think too many of us would test early and as often! Some more thinking on my part made me ask if there were any further details on the new method. Nope. DH and I were left to speculate and visualize attempts to make cows PIAC or POAS. Which would work better?

It sure would make us think twice about taking a pregnancy test.

So heres what I am thinking... Those women on "I didnt know I was pg", yeah they thought this is how humans test too! That would be me if we had to test like that. I would say, "nope not pregnant, just bloated, with a headache, and heartburn, and OH CRAP A BABY!" Thanks for the laugh!
