Step One: Open test.
Step Two: Pee on stick.
Step Three: Wait three minutes.
Step Four: Pass time by daydreaming about ideal diaper bag. One that looks like Rebecca Minkoff’s classic Morning After bag but bigger, with baby-friendly pockets, a shoulder strap, a waterproof liner, and a heavy-duty webbed stroller strap to match.
Step Five: Imagine it’s called the Knocked Up bag.
Step Six: Picture yourself walking down the street, supple almond leather satchel slung over your shoulder and a sleeping baby in a stroller by your side.
Step Seven: Visualize same perfect bag in a bumpy black patent or black nylon with matching leather trim.
Step Eight: Check stick.
Congratulations, you’re knocked up.
