Plan A & B


Two lines. 13dpo. Second one is thicker and darker than yesterday. Since you asked, here are the pics. 12 dpo is on the bottom.
No one knows but you. And Cowboy. Who congratulated me on my, well, pee. We're both so cautious right now.

Woke up at 5:18 AM this morning. That would be on a Saturday. To POAS. Lame.

Plan A and B are squarely on my mind. Plan A is calm elation. Just get through today only. Pregnant. Plan B - engaged if the line goes away - is to go for a long trail run. Followed by yoga.

After two miscarriages in less than a year, I can't believe I feel this, umm, well, okay right now. Perhaps I think I have the confidence that I can get through whatever happens this time. I've done it before. And I've watched those who have faced much, much worse get through the really bad parts, too. Maybe we don't return to our old selves. But we survive.

I will POAS tomorrow and Monday. If I still have 2 lines by Monday, I will call my RE's office for a beta. If I don't, I will call my OB for a shot of RhoGam. That is the plan. That is as far as it goes right now.

Wow. When I first saw the pictures and read the first sentence about "two lines," I thought you were kidding. Y'know, two pregnancy tests with one line on each = two lines. Then I looked at the photos a little more closely and my heart did that funny jumping thing. I'm speechless.

I'll be crossing everything crossable that this is a sticky one for you. :)

I'm so pleased you're calm. Well done you, that takes a lot of control.

Someone wise told me that worrying only passed the time and did nothing to help (and I've no idea who it was) They were so right, it is hard, however, to put into action.

Best wishes x

You will survive what ever comes your way, because you are very a strong woman.

And cautiously optimistic "hoooray!!"

I am voting for Plan A. I do get a vote, right? Plan A it is then.

Moving on. I'm voting for Plan A every day. Every DAY for the next 9 months.

Have a calmly elated weekend.

(((hugs from me)))
