Circle of Life -Digitally Enhanced

My mom had been trying not to tell me about Cody's illness until I was through the 2WW because she didn't want to add stress to my life. She told W, though, who of course promptly told me. No way should she go through this without me.

Once we began talking about it She sweetly offered that Cody would send us down a little blond baby. I didn't think he'd be gone so quickly, but he's failing really quickly, and they're putting him down this morning. I haven't told her anything yet, but she does know she'll hear one way or the other on Sunday. I felt like she should have some time with her grief, and then I can whack her upside the head with this piece of good news.

I'm moving onto a digital test for my next one. The idea would be to wait until tomorrow morning, but I really don't know if I can make it that long. We'll see... In the meantime, thanks for all the happy wishes!!!!!!!!

So, yeah, wasn't so able to wait until tomorrow. I just took a digital test and I am

P!R!E!G!N!A!N!T!

Holy motherfucker. Does it mean I'm going to be a bad mom if I forgot my prometrium supp this morning?

Digital is definately the way to go! As for waiting until tomorrow morning, that is the best. However, if you have 4 hours between your last urination and the test, it should work fine too. The cool thing about the digital--it tells you if you have screwed it up.

I am so sorry to hear about your mother's dog.

I am stupidly afraid of the digital tests. I still haven't done one, even though my last beta was over 400--that is how scared I am of seeing that stupid stick say "NOT PREGNANT!" (Really, couldn't it say "better luck next time," or something gentler?)

But yes, it would be nice not to have the line interpretation...

I started crying (again) when I read about Cody escorting a little baby down your way. I can totally picture it. That is so good that you can be there for your mom. I hope the awful day is not to hard on her. And easy for Cody. We treated our lab to a hamburger before we put him down.

Thinking of you!

WOWOWWOWO!!!! YAY! I am so very excited for you! I can't believe I missed it last night, I must start checking blogs at night!!!!

I hope this news helps your mom, this weekend will be so mixed for her. Sending warm hugs.

I'm so sorry about Cody.

Congrats on the good thing, though.

Leah said...

I'm so sorry about Cody, and the grieving that your Mom will do as a result.

Yeah for digital! Don't wait until tomorrow. Do it now! AND do another tomorrow! And the next day! I really AM a stick pusher, aren't I? You'd think I owned stock in the damn things.

I'm so sorry about Cody and for your mom. I'm glad you know so that you can help her through this very tough day and time...

As for the tests, I'm a big digital fan, too. But, I would (if at all possible) probably try to wait until tomorrow. I feel like the FMU thing is big this early on, and a negative would be too upsetting to be worth it (and would probably be meaningless).

That's my $0.02 anywho... :-)

I'm so sorry about Cody.

Congratulations on your BFP! YAY! :)

Sticky Bun said...

There's a lesson there somewhere...something about never listening to me. :-) I couldn't be happier--that's GREAT that you got a positive digital in the middle of the day. Fabulous news.

SHUT THE F UP!!!!!! That is Fabulous!!!!
I apologize for the cussing, but damn, this is worth a few holy shits!

Waiting Amy said...

That is wonderful! I'm thrilled for you!

(still sorry about Cody, that's so sad)

I am so sorry about Cody. It is so hard to loose a pet.

I am glad the digital is giving you the most beautiful word you could read!

Baby Step said...

Hi - you don't know me, I saw a referral on another blog and thought I would come over. Congrats on the BFP!! I added you to my blogroll...I had to put my pup down last January after 3 rounds of chemo and radiation and to tell you the truth, not sure I would do the treatment again. It didn't help...I am sure your mom did the right thing. I am really sorry about Cody. I am about to start IVF #1 - probably in 4-6 weeks. YIKES!

Fertilize Me said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

sorry about cody. i had a loss also right around the time i found out i was pregnant and it's such a weird feeling, that whole circle of life thing. but in a weird way it has been nice to feel a connection between the one who is gone and the little new life, sort of comforting to feel like i'm carrying them both in my heart. i'm not explaining this well and it probably sounds very odd, but just wishing you the best.
