I have been trying to lay low and not over think everything. Which is of course nearly impossible. I have been trying to tell my self that the strange little stomach cramps are just gas pains or something. Or that my moodiness is just from the waiting. Or that the nausea I feel every time I have my mom’s potato salad that I normally love, is just from the heat. But you see I don’t think I believe that. Or at least I don’t want to believe that. I want to believe that these are all early pregnancy signs. And to tell you a little secret, one that I haven’t even shared with Jeff, I think that they are. I bought some cheap wal.mart preg tests and have been peeing on them frequently. Because there was just no way I could wait till Wednesday like I said I would. So the first day was clearly neg. But the second test had a faint second line. Of course I thought i was seeing things. So later in the day when I had a stockpile of pee in my bladder, I took another test. Again there appeared to be a second line. However, because I wasn’t positive about it, I haven’t told anyone. But I bought today a pack of three EPT digital tests because I am done messing around with lines. And three was the perfect number because I can take one every morning starting tomorrow morning through Friday morning when I go for my beta. So we will see what is what in the morning when we are dealing with words, not stupid lines.

In other news my mom was in a car accident on Monday. She was rear ended and has some serious whiplash going on. The doctor also thinks something is going on with the nerves in her neck because she is having a lot tingling going from her right shoulder all the way to her fingers. Poor thing, I feel bad for her.  She is in a lot of pain right now and could use any prayers for comfort you guys can give.

Thats pretty much the latest over here in Massachusetts. There is more drama happening with my sister. The long and short of it is that she didn’t show up for a birthday dinner on Sunday for my dad and for Jeff and it was the needle that broke the camels back and now everything is at a stalemate. Drama, drama, drama! Not what I need this week so I am trying to ignore it as much as possible.



  1. Can’t wait to hear what the digital tests conclude! Sounds very very encouraging. Fingers crossed!!!

    I’ll keep your mom in my prayers. Hope the family drama passes quickly.

  2. You are the POAS queen!

    I’m crossing fingers for double lines! You know if you open up the digitals, they have lines like the old fashioned ones. The digital just takes the guessing out of it. I know about that because I have gotten a negative before and cracked one of those suckers open!

    Hey, I ran across this article and I thought of you. That’s not your doctor, is it? I might post about it this week, I thought it was interesting. My husband was nervous about twins at first too, but sort of gave in.
