Beta Day



I was up at 3:30 this morning in nervous anticipation. I still don’t feel pregnant. The Professor begs to differ after I had a near melt down at the bagel shop yesterday when they said there were only “everything” bagels in gluten-free that weekend. Who the fuck likes an everything bagel? They STINK to high heaven and then linger on your breath for hours H.O.U.R.S. Who wants that for breakfast? Or second breakfast in my case?

Once in the car I demanded we detour to the co-op before going out to hike so I could buy a BAG of gluten-free bagels. Fattie. I just finished devouring another one before writing this. OMG. So Freaking Good.

The husband also thinks it is unusual that all I want to eat aside from toast and bagels is canned vegan chili. God what I would not give for a nice can of vegan chili to wash down that bagel right now.

So yeah, I guess I “could” be having some pregnancy symptoms or it could just be PIO symptoms or I could just be that weird. (I have always loved me some canned vegan chili.)

Now to kill 3 more hours before the lab opens. I’ll update after I get the results, call the Professor and call my friend in Texas (who I have sworn I would call no matter how much of a crying sobbing mess I might be).

    This is going to sound so unsympathetic and unsupportive, but I’m with the Professor on this one. Hang in there, lady. I know this time is hard. But I have high hopes. Pun totally intended.

  17. October 22, 2012

    My fingers are crossed for you, Belle. You WILL get good news, I’m willing to happen. I’m also sending voodoo fingers towards you. Can you feel the magic? xoxo

    sounds like it’s going well, cravings and all! good luck and hopes for a high (but not off the charts unhealthy high of course) beta!!

    everything bagels are great, but precaution must be taken. i LOVE everything bagels. with butter, REAL butter, or cream cheese. BUT, one must absolutely floss, brush, and then gargle with H2O2 or listerine afterwards if one is to talk with anyone who has not also eaten a delicious everything bagel. they are also lovely for dinner, with smoked salmon and lots of cut up fresh veggies:)

    but yeah, totally understand The Fear of Bad Breath.

    Good Luck Lady. I’ll be thinking of you today. Eat as many bagels and as much chili as you want! Sounds like a pregnancy symptom to me!

  20. October 22, 2012

    Good luck! Thinking of you 🙂

    And I love me some everything bagels!!!

    Praying for high numbers. We have a bakery near us that makes gluten free bagels…YUM. AND….just yesterday…my husband made the glutino french bread (from the french bread and pizza mix box)…Oh my Belle….you need to get this….it is soooo freaking good (not vegan…but def GF and the BEST I have had so far)…it will go a long way to satisfy your toast craving.

  22. October 22, 2012

    Well I already peeked and saw your beta number (YAY!). I really like everything bagels…but they do linger on your breath forever. 🙂

  23. October 23, 2012

    *raises hand* I love everything bagels! In fact, I think I’m going to walk to the bagel store 2 blocks away and get one now! So happy for you hon! Keep feeding the baby/ies what they want!

      I can’t get over how many people like everything bagels! I seem to be in the minority. Maybe that is why the hunky bagel guy looked at me like I was crazy. 😉
