: so good to hear from you again. Wow. How time flies. Hard to believe you are at 20 weeks! How are you feeling?
: I'm thinking Anna has arrived. If so, I hope the labor was short and epidural-assisted
: *ouch* on the baby shower. I had one last week and was pleased that I truly couldn't attend (I had my transfer on Friday). So I sent a present and my regrets. That is pretty much what I do for every shower now a days. I'm sorry you are bummed. I have found that as all of my friends, and most of my acquaintances have children, I can feel a bit isolated at times. *hugs*
: ooooo, showing your boss what is what sounds like a job for the AG! Or maybe Fee since she is at least it the same hemisphere. what is he thinking? A woman in your fragile state should be "working" with her feet up on the desk eating bon-bons with frequent internet chatting breaks
: Congrats on the part-time work from home thing! One of my dh's paralegals did that for a year or two (until she moved) and it worked out real well. I hope the same for you.
: Sounds like you Texans are going to be hit with some Texas-sized storms in the next few days
. Hold on to your hats down there!
Well girls... here is the update.
I gave into the evil HPT. Me... who has always waited until 8dpt AT LEAST before giving in... caved on 5dpt which was yesterday
. Partially b/c if it turned out I AM actually pregnant, I wanted to surprise dh at our fancy dinner tonight (what better Valentine's Day present?). Partially b/c I was having a heavy sensation and mild cramping (different than AF cramps) which I have never had before. Partially b/c I figured what did I have to lose? As I fully expect this to be my last 2ww... why not "test it out"?
Yesterday there was a very faint line. The kind you have to look at in the right light and maybe squint a bit to see. Today... it is much darker. It appears I am "with child". Now don't worry... I am not planning when my first US will be, much less picking out colors for the nursery. I am well aware next week at this time I may no longer be pregnant.
But today (if just for today)... I am knocked up.
** This is the first time in 6+yrs of ttc that I have seen a second line. To be honest, I really didn't believe it. I must have taken it out a dozen times yesterday to look at it!
