The line is slightly darker this morning. I woke up at 1:45 a.m. to POAS but that line was the same as yesterdays. I think it is because I drank a couple of glasses of water and a big glass of juice before bed. My test at 4:45 a.m. was satisfactorily darker. I’m going to hold onto this one for hope (shhhh, don’t dash my hope, please!)

I also took a digital test, but it came up “NOT PREGNANT,” which was pretty devastating at 1:45 a.m. In my sleepy fog I remembered Rachel warning me that the digitals are not as sensitive and that I might want to hold on on peeing on those for a few more days. There’s that patience thing again. Blast.

Rachel from Eggs In A Row called me last night to squee about the good news. Her call was only the second time that day I had gotten to talk about this. I called my mom and she was thrilled. Mr. Husband was happy, but wanted to talk about his math job hunt for what seemed like an eternity. Thank goodness I got another business call and had to hang up otherwise I might have lashed out at him for not paying enough attention to Pip and MY NEWS. Childish, I know.

Anyways, Rachel called and it made my heart nearly burst with love and appreciation for this community. Rachel was the second blogger I connected with after finding Mo. She, too, is dealing with some lupus-y stuff, PCOS and some crazy-ass cycles. She shares my dry wit and obsession with peeing ovulation tests and HPTs regardless of the probability of them being positive. I am so thankful that I had the chance to have dinner with her while in Vegas, and cannot wait till our next trip to Arizona so we can visit again. It is so surreal that this online community has brought me IRL friends, some of whom I have REAL dinners with. (I’m totally exploding with sappiness today, I blame the pee sticks!) Thank you for the call last night, Rachel. It meant so much to get to talk to a human being about this. xoxo!

That’s all for now. You’ll probably get another post from me tonight. I think it is going to be a two-post-a-day week, my apologies!

    *clapping hands* I am sooooo very happy for you!!!

    YAAYYYY! That is definitely darker! The digital ones are not as sensitive, it’s true. They have no nuance. It is either over their threshold or it isn’t. Ahh!! I wish today was Thursday!!!!

      Robin, I needed this commend so badly. I’m having a MAJOR freak out day. How is your spotting? I have been thinking about you since I read this post when I was up at 2 a.m. hugs to you and your sweet babes.

    Those are some damn BEAUTIFUL pee sticks. The line is totally darker, ignore the digital, there is no questioning that line!!!!! Squeeeeeeee!!!

    • April 25, 2012

      Thank you, Izzy. I REALLY needed to hear that others can tell the line is darker. Today is the hardest day yet. I went back through your blog b/c I remember you had faint BFPs, too. It gives me hope that Pip is here to stay. Thanks for the support!

  10. April 25, 2012

    I am totally jumping up and down right now freaking out for you!!!

    • April 25, 2012

      Thanks for jumping for me! I’m trying to jostle my innards as little as possible 🙂

    High five to you and Pip! How long do you think you’ll keep POAS-ing??? I’ve done three and am feeling slightly obsessed ja,ja

    • April 25, 2012

      What what? How did I miss your announcement? I’m so excited for you! How long will I keep POAS-ing? Well… I just ordered 12 first response tests from Amazon so at lest 12 more days. Knowing me, I’ll probably test till we see a heart beat. Lord, this could cut into my shoe budget 🙂

        funny! The Huz told that three tests were probably enough (and I’m like, “In what world??” I need to hit the pharmacy tomorrow morning since they’re already closed here (everything closes at 8 pm!). Can’t stop looking at those two lines!

    congrats, congrats, congrats on these beautiful pee sticks! mine looked exactly the same at 7&8dp5dt and just continued to darken as the days progressed. i did about 12 of them (plus a box of digitals!) lol, it’s just so fun to see the lines darken. i’ll be looking forward to yours in the days ahead!

    • April 25, 2012

      Oh my goodness, I’m glad I’m not alone. I just ordered 12 pee sticks from Amazon. 🙂
