Just In Case


Just in case, you know, I’m not pregnant anymore tomorrow, when I return to the baby factory for a repeat beta, I thought I’d better post these.

One is from Sunday a week ago. Yes, after I’d already gotten the call, because I couldn’t adequately gather my courage to do so before the phone rang. There were two in the box, so it seemed perfectly reasonable to pee on the other one on in the middle of the week, when I was feeling particularly un-pregnant. And promptly fret that its line looked lighter, even though I know (I know!) that isn’t how these things work and anyway, it’s not as if I’d controlled for hydration and so on. Anyway, now that one looks darker, so who the hell knows.

  1. Will be thinking of you on Sunday. Hugs!

    (sorry. Am in full-on Hug All The Things! mode. Be hugged).

  2. I’ll be sending tons of good thoughts tomorrow.

  3. I’ll be stalking tomorrow to hear your fabulous number.

  4. Beautiful 🙂
    And I agree that it’s reasonable to keep peeing on sticks after you have an answer!

  5. As I’m sure you know, it actually gets darker and then lighter as the days go on because… I’ve totally forgotten and am too tired to make something up. Blah blah blah ELISA blah blah blah protein titres, blah blah something binding, sensitivity etc., right?

    In any event, I dearly hope it’s all fine.

  6. Looks pretty decisive!! When is the trip?

  7. I am the Queen of the peesticks. QUEEN. And I can tell you with certainty that they are a law unto their bloody selves. Continuing to keep evvvvvvvverything crossed.
