As many of us know, the two week wait is pure torture. In the past I would work on projects to keep me busy and my mind off of what every little twinge my body was having and what it meant. But this time I was extremely lazy. Both weekends I laid around doing nothing but watching TV and movies. I mean my body got tired of lying down. Sad.
Last week I started noticing a few different feelings that I didn’t have with the other cycles. I think it was maybe Monday night, I was lying in bed reading and I typically read while lying on my side. My boobs hung down and they hurt. I mean like a sharp pain. Last time I didn’t have that. So the next day I took a home test – negative.
I skipped Wednesday and tested again on Thursday morning. Faint line! I held it up making sure I was reading it right. All day I didn’t believe it, thought maybe it was a defective stick. So that same day I went home and tested again that night. Faint line.
Still not believing it, I tested every morning. I even went and bought a different brand. Faint line. Each day that faint line got darker and darker. I still couldn’t and wouldn’t believe it until my beta this Wednesday. Well this past Sunday I had a gush of pinkish blood, then a gush of bright red blood. Not a lot but enough to make me notice. Or maybe it was the gush that made me notice. Monday I emailed my nurse and asked if I could come in Tuesday instead of Wednesday, that I’ve been getting positive home tests and want to know officially, so I can be officially happy. Of course, she said!
So that was today. I had my beta test this morning and my nurse called around 1pm to tell me that it’s official – I’m pregnant!!!!
I still don’t believe it, but at least now I can be officially happy. In fact, I’m so happy I could cry.
