4:47 A.M. (A Preview of Today's Attractions)


My plan had been to pee in a container this morning, refrigerate the pee until I went to the RE's office for bloodwork and my allergist for my shots, pick up a HPT on the way home and TEST. This plan would (1) allow me to not cry my way through my morning, and (2) give me a chance to pick up a HPT. (I didn't trust myself to buy one earlier in the week.)

But I woke up at 4:35 this morning with the thought: "Hey, do I still have a HPT from last year?" Guess what? I did.

Seriously, who expected me to resist?

The news is good, though I wish the line were darker. Silly, silly me.

I'm relieved, but so amped up/shaky I don't know how I'm going to get back to sleep.

A warning for all of you newish readers who are inclined to jump up and down and congratulate me: I'VE BEEN HERE FOUR TIMES. THIS IS GOOD NEWS, BUT IT'S JUST STEP ONE.

Beta later today. I'll post.

(You know what I love about this blog? You're finding out before J, who is blissfully sleeping away.)

Quietly screaming (internall) . . . OMG, OMG, OMFG!

Prayers, good thoughts, positive vibes, wishing on the miniature garden gnome, meditating on a prancing unicorn, and all of that other stuff!

HEY, HEY!! This is fantastic news! I know that this is just the beginning, that you've been here before, but I'm still keeping my hopes up for you. Steps 2 through 1,000 don't happen without step one.

Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog. Really, really wonderful. I mean it.

Woohoo! You're a little pregnant!

Woohoo! I so hear you about cautious optimism (I am the queen of it), but step one is step one, and we'll be excited for you in the meantime. Looking forward to more good news!

:-)...Nice.

That line loooks great. I'm working on my 4th pregnancy (no babies) so I know how it feels to be hesitant about a BFP. Best of luck with your beta today!

Illanare said...

You left a lovely comment on my blog and I wanted to thank you. I guess I know somewhere in the deep recesses of my psyche that m/cs weren't my fault but - well it was good to read what you wrote. It helped to bring those better thoughts to the surface.

Still have fingers and toes crossed for you.

Kate said...

That's a very nice line you've got there - hope you get fantastic news from your beta.
I sooo know the cautious optimism feeling after previous losses. Hope this time turns out great for both of us!

luna said...

looking good, great news. the longest journey begins with the first step.

Shinejil said...

Yes!

I know it's just the first step and the next few weeks are going to be, uh,challenging to say the least, but it looks like a very strong start.

All digits and limbs crossed.

Rambler said...

Congrats!! I'm glad I came back for the update. I read the orginial post early on Saturday morning.

Very excited for you and I hope you can savor this first step, while waiting to climb the others. Like someone else commented, you can't get to the final step until you encounter 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....you get the point!

Also, I wanted to award you with a blog award. Please stop by and pick when you can!

Mrs. Hammer said...

Awesome beta. I guess we'll continue to hold our breath though? Great first step :) I have an award waiting for you.

Yes, it's just one hurdle but it's an important one.

Io said...

I like that beta! I hope that the next one is better, and the one after that even better... I have my fingers crossed that the kid sticks around.

Joonie said...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and am eagerly awaiting the results of your beta!!
