Am I crazy or is this a positive pregnancy test?!?!


Recommended Posts

Thanks, all! It's hard not to still worry a little when you read about so many other women having levels way into the 5,000's or more by this stage, but all I can do is reassure myself that they are rising/doubling like they should and wait to see that heartbeat! 9 more days to go, at least it's a single digit wait now! :D

 

Yep! It will be here soon! :) Hang in there hon. How is your throat??

This was the hardest time for me, I hate waiting. Just one day at a time, and LOTS of distraction! :grouphug:

My throat is tons better. It doesn't hurt to swallow anymore, though I have a post nasal drip that makes my throat scratchy and makes me cough, especially as I'm falling asleep. Still taking antibiotics and ear drops.

 

I made it to the 6 week mark as of today with no problems! :) 8 more days until my ultrasound!

 

Last night I was watching A Baby Story show from TLC and my 11 y/o dd came in to watch. She turned to me and asked if I was ever going to have another baby because she really wanted a little sister (but not another little brother because they are annoying haha) and that she would help take care of it and change diapers and everything.

 

It was a little tempting to go "Well, actually...!" but I just told her to watch the show lol. I don't want to get the kids excited and then have to give them bad news, so I want to make sure there is a heartbeat at the very least, and maybe even get through the first trimester before I tell them.

Wow! What a journey you & your "sweet pea" are off to together already! I just sat here this morning & read through all 46 pages of this thread!!

 

I'm praying for you & your family. Thanks for sharing this journey with The Hive. What a blessing for us too!

 

I hope all goes well at your dr. visit & you get to recovering from the sickies soon!

 

I remember sharing the news of a new sibling with our children right after I found out was exciting. We found out only a few weeks later it was only the "home" for baby & no baby. It was not only devastating for dh & I, but our kidlets too! I advise waiting to share the news as you are.

My kids still talk about the baby I lost just before 6 weeks 5 years ago. When I got pg with my youngest I did not tell them until after that first u/s when I saw the hb, then I felt safe enough to tell them.

 

Can't wait to hear about your u/s once the day arrives. I am so glad that thus far everything is normal.

Keep busy so time flies on by.

 

I'm trying! Yesterday I went to a used book sale, took my daughter to judo, took my son to teeball, cleaned my kitchen and read almost a whole book lol.

 

Today we are taking the kids to a festival from 12-4. Wanted to go get a pedicure first but they don't open until 11 so will have to do that another time. Tomorrow the kids have dentist appointments and I have a mom's night out dinner. Maybe I will get my pedicure in the afternoon in between those things. :D

 

And of course still trying to wrap up school!

 

5 more days! Until the u/s, not of school. :P

The problem with you East Coasters is that you have a 3 hour head start. I was just coming on to say 4 more days!:D I haven't been this excited for an ultra sound since my last one.:001_smile:

Nice! This is a woman who knows how to do pregnancy! :) What color did you go with? Did you go with any of the trends? I have neon hot pink on my toes right now! :D I wish it had been a professional pedicure though instead of a DIY. Those foot massages are wonderful! :tongue_smilie:

Oaky, now I'm totally caught up in this and looking forward to the results of the U/S! :D

 

I really think you should bring all of us along with you! :lol:

 

Seriously!

 

Can you run Skype during the ultrasound and have them carry a live feed to those of us here at the WTM boards??

 

:D

lol I wish I could bring you all with me! Your support has been phenomenal! Plus it'd be funny lol.

 

Whoever asked about the manicure- my husband did my nails for me later that day after I got the pedicure! He's good at stuff like that. He would have done my toes, too, but I wanted all the trappings of a salon pedicure. :D

 

Anyway... Only two more days, so I can now say my u/s is "the day after tomorrow!" That sounds so close!!!

Oh that's so exciting!! And may I just say Nance that you are being a trooper through all of this. You're handling it so well. Just 2 more days! Woo hoo! :) :hurray:

It's TOMORROW! :hurray:

 

It's at 9:20 AM EST so around 25 hours from now, I'll be heading in for my ultrasound! Getting more nervous and excited all at once! I just REALLY hope everything measures how it should, and there's a heartbeat and so on!

 

Fortunately, I will be able to stay busy and distracted today. I am leaving around 9:30 this morning for a field trip- we're touring an alpaca farm an hour away from home with our homeschool group. I won't get home from that until probably 2-2:30, and at 6 PM, my son has a teeball game. In between, I'll do a little schoolwork with my daughter, watch some of those "Baby Story" shows I recorded to DVR, read my book, and count down the hours...

 

Nance, (who made it to 7 weeks today with no known problems)!

About three hours to go! I am so excited and nervous all at once! Please send good vibes, cross your fingers, say a quick prayer, or whatever it is you do in these situations that everything looks healthy and normal and that I don't get any worrying news today! Thank you!!!

 

ETA: Just two hours to go, now! I've already showered, shaved my legs, got dressed, I'm sipping my morning cup of decaf...this is going to be a slow two hours lol.
