Oh, my gosh

“How can I bear so much happiness!”—Jane Bennet, Pride & Prejudice

Hubs convinced me to take an HPT before work this morning. I hate those darn things, but, as it usually goes with hubs, he convinced me of the sagacity of his request. It would be best to get my emotions (mostly) under control somewhere besides my cube. And we’d be together, bad or good.

And then. AND THEN!

There were two lines!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And, just a bit ago, a phone call with 13dpiui Beta news. Positive!

I know. I KNOW!!!! It’s crazy and I feel totally normal and I can’t stop shaking and I’ve been up since 4am and this all feels like a dream and I never ever want to wake up. THANK YOU DR. AWESOME! The man is a genius and I love him.

I don’t know what to say except I will try to articulate this most heart-felt prayer and wish, which I feel with every cell in my being: Please, please, please, please, please let this be THE ONE. Please let it be healthy and strong. Please let THIS BE IT. Please, please, please.

    I am so happy for you! It is the craziest thing ever to finally see two lines after really believing that you never would. Enjoy these days of bliss (especially if you are going to be like me and start feeling absolutely terrible every day after a couple weeks — not that it isn’t worth it).

    Congrats, congrats, congrats!!! Spring 2010 babies!

    Oh Egg! There just aren’t words to tell you how happy this makes me. Did you sit on that positive test all day before telling us? What will power! Try not to think about the future, but just feel the joy of this moment.

  41. YIPPEE! Get a whole bunch of sticks (different brands) and use several a day, just for the fun of it. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, I hope this is IT!

  42. EEEEGGGGGGGGG!!!!! Amazing! What is with this doctor? All you have to do is schedule an IVF consult and BAM you’re knocked up! (Isn’t this the same doctor as APlusB?)

    Sooooooo happy for you!! You completely deserve this and I am unbelievably happy for you.

  43. Esperanza

    Yay! I’m so happy for you! I hope this is your sticky bean!!!! Dr. Awesome pulls through!!!!

    Followed AL’s call to action at Mission: Motherhood, and so I’m here to throw my arms up and shout “hooraaaaayyyyy!” This is wonderful news. May your little egg stay put and cook until it’s just the way you like it. Congratulations!

    Just switched to WordPress, and for some reason my link isn’t coming up. In case you ever want to visit, I’m at http://plantingapumpkinpatch.wordpress.com. Congrats again!

  47. Oh, Egg!!! I just KNEW it was going to happen for you! I know, of course, that YOU had your doubts, but I never doubted you’d get your BFP and I am not surprised an IUI was all it took for you. BIG congratulations!!!

  48. I’m totally tearing up over here, Egg. I’m just…so, so overjoyed for you, my friend. 🙂

  49. I’m THRILLED for you. Isn’t is the best, unbelievable moment???? I am wishing you a happy, healthy pregnancy. ~Renae from Launderlife
