typical friday afternoon

I am the girl who used to open her Christmas presents early, then make sure they were somewhat-professionally rewrapped, so as not to draw attention to my unwrapping techniques.

I used to read detailed reviews for movies I had yet to see.

I have read the occasional last page of a book prior to the preceeding pages.

I am running out of euphemisms for being impatient.

Today I took a pregnancy test at work on my lunch hour.  I got a faint positive result.  It's certainly faint, but it is most definitely there. 

(A check with the internets and my doctor's office says that usually means good things, and that any line at all other than the control line usually means you're pregnant.  I've included a picture, to prove I'm not  completely seeing things.)  We have an early morning appointment for my first Beta test.  (A test to check my hCG levels - basically, we look for these levels to double about every two days in early pregnancy.  We will monitor these for a few days for some reason I don't know yet.) 

For those of you who skimmed that, I said it looks like we're pregnant.  We'll know for sure tomorrow.

:)  Thanks for impatiently waiting with me.  This has been the LONGEST THREE HOURS OF MY LIFE, for reference.  I can't believe I waited this long to tell you. :)


  1. Now I'm me as soon as you get the Beta test results.

  2. Sounds good! Given that it's only 11 dp IUI I'd say that's not that faint a positive. You'll post the beta results, right? I guess no signs were a sign!


  3. I will absolutely post betas! I keep checking the test, just in case I'm dreaming (it does look lighter in real life.)

    :) I like that no signs were a sign. Carrie was right! Now, I think the trick is to think of anything else for a few days... I'll let you know how that goes...

  4. YES!!!! YES!!!! Congratulations - I am so glad. Does this mean I will be great aunt Peggy? (As in an adjective, not old)
