Pregnancy... Impossible!

"Another pink plus sign... FUCK!"

"Hmm... Maybe it's a defective test.  Just like the other two, right? False positive pregnacny tests can happen," he thought to himself.

He opened up the pamphlet that came with the tests looking for any information he could find regarding false positive results.  There was nothing to be found.  He then turned to the internet.  Surely there had to be SOMETHING that put his mind at ease.

With a great sense of urgency he typed, "Pregnancy test false positive" into the Google search box and waited for something, ANYTHING, to put his mind at ease.

"YES! False positives can happen."

He danced around the room with joy.

Surely, this was the case.  Surely there had been some user error on his part.  It was just ONE TIME.  How could he be preggers after just ONE TIME???  At least, that is what he kept telling himself.  Then as quickly as he had convinced himself there was no way he was pregnant, reality kicked-in and he searched through his contacts for his doctor's office number.  As he waited for someone to pick up on the other end, all he could think was, "If I could only go back to that moment and do things differently..."

It may have been just one time, but it may have been the one time that counted the most.
