Anyone have a bottle of Purell? I have heard two icky stories about celebrities and home pregnancy tests and I'm feeling kinda dirty. F
irst, it was Jerry Seinfeld. In Page Six last week, Jerry talked about how his wife, Jessica, told them she was pregnant two months after they got hitched. "She had one of those [home pregnancy test] sticks that you buy at the drugstore," Jer said. "I was sleeping and she started tapping the stick on the pillow. So I opened my eyes. It was great."
The second came from the stunning Halle Berry, who talked to Oprah today about her stash of used preg tests that she stored in a drawer. "I'm sort of superstitious," she said, "so I saved all of the negative [pregnancy] tests in a drawer. Don't ask! I don't know why, but I did. ... After about 35 tests, we finally got a positive test."
Okay... so don't you pee on the stick to get a reading? Then people take these urine-covered things and wipe them on pillows or store them in drawers? It just sounds so icky to me. Am I overreacting?
