Oh my gosh Jina! He's soooo stinking cute! It looks like he already has a lot of hair! Thank you so much for showing us a picture. So at this point, do you think he looks more like you or M?
It's funny, even in the blurry black and white 2D pictures of T when he was a baby from the time of our gender scan on, I always thought he looked like my brother, and he still does look a lot like my brother.
When do you find out about your GD test?
AFM - Tonight we're going to DH's school for their annual talent show. It should be a lot of fun, and I think T will really enjoy it. They will have a magician, a juggler, singing, dancing, some bands....it should be entertaining. Then tomorrow T is spending the night with my mom and dad, and DH will be home late, so I am going to take it very easy!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Jina, awwww what a cutie!! Hope your GD test comes back good.
Alissa, that sounds like fun with T. And I hope you get some really good relaxation time. I've done nothing BUT relax this week..LOL.. aside from work I mean.
Work went much better today - the guy who made me so mad yesterday came up to me early this morning smiling and joking around about yesterday. I was over it - so I laughed with him. I had to work late today, but right when I was leaving the boss man came in with me and the mgr and they were both nagging on me, so... it was time to go. They certainly know how to raise my blood pressure quickly. I'm not sure if my dogs are going through a phase or what, but this is the second day in a row I've come home to trash being ALL OVER the floor. I'm wondering if it has something to do with Tim not being home.
Checked the heartbeat today - it was that really loud galloping sound. I love hearing that. I mean, I always find it, but sometimes it just sounds like a heartbeat...(which is FINE, I just like the other one better.) I ate lunch at Wendys... ugh, totally shouldn't have I was already feeling queasy because I hadn't eaten, but I'm pretty sure this is gonna come back up. Hope you ladies have a nice weekend.
Hi Ladies. I am sure many of you have seen what is going on with me on the DYSAL board. Such a CRAZY roller-coaster. I am such a mess. Part of me thinks even if there is a 1 and 1,000 chance, how utterly exciting is that. I can't help but feel excited. The other part of me thinks, don't you dare get excited. There are a million and one things that could go wrong.
Bonita - OMG, I don't blame you for feeling like you are on a roller coaster. That would certainly be crazy and amazing if you are pregnant after having your tubes tied, although I read it does happen sometimes. How does your DH feel about it?
DH and I both would love another baby. We are both just worried about a loss. He is concerned about my health, as well as us getting excited just to be crushed. He accidently mentioned something at dinner in front of the girls so he told them. I would not have told them until we were more sure. He has been very supportive though. He is also amazed that this has happened.
I have started syco analysing every cramp I have. Only you ladies can understand the constant need to go to the RR to check the toilet paper and make sure there is no bleeding. I am now two days late with a grand total of 10 pg tests with faint lines. I bought some Answer tests at the store today that I will use in the morning so I can have a complete set of every kind of test out there.
I am not sure if you were around when I was pg with Caitlyn, but it started out the same way. My lines were very faint until I was about a week late. In all of my pregnancies I have had slow rising betas and an early ultrasound is about a week behind. For example when I KNOW that I am 6 weeks, and ultrasound shows 5 weeks. The lines not being super dark does worry me, but I also know the exact same thing happened with Caitlyn and she is 3 now.
I laughed when I read "so I can have a complete set of every kind of test out there." Have you done any digital tests yet? The faint lines don't worry me too much, unless they are getting fainter. As you said, the way the betas rise is different from woman to woman, and preg tests aren't really built to tell you "how" pregnant you are, only yes or no. I'd say 10 yes'es is a pretty big indicator.
That is great that your DH is happy and excited (if still reserved, which is totally understandable.) It's great that you are both on the same page about happily welcoming another baby, if that is what is to be.
You'll have to let us know what the Answer test says tomorrow.
I do not want to take a digital yet. I am scared from trying a digital with Caitlyn. I had the same problem of very faint lines. I had been getting faint lines for a week, then took a digital. It said not pregnant. It was so discouraging and made me second guess myself. If I do end up getting to the point of say 7 or 8 weeks, I will spring for a digital, but not until then.
If I can be up and about before my house guest is, I will post tomorrow's picture. Other wise I will need to wait until after church.
Please pray/ send happy thoughts that tomorrow's test is nice and dark. Even my darkest tests are not dark enough to really show up well in a picture, or are dark enough that if I went to the doctor that the test would show up for them.
Thanks for the support. It means so much that I have someone besides DH that I can talk to as there is no one IRL that I can talk to.
Answer brand test was positive. Pink enough that there is no way this is in my imagination. I just can't believe it. Everyone I know who has had a tubal ligation is going to panic when they find out. Please pray with me that this is a nice healthy sticky bean that is in my uterus (not a tubal).
I said it on the other thread, but I'm very sorry to hear this. You have been through a real wringer this week, and I'm sure the disappointment is really painful.
We're always here to listen if you want to talk about it (though I also completely understand if you don't.)
How is your DH doing with everything? I know he was kind of excited at the possibility too...
