Beta #1 Results

8 Oct

I am writing this from my newly downloaded WordPress app. Why? Because my power just went out! Best timing ever.

So, the nurse called about 30 minutes ago (god, it feels like 30 seconds ago!). I felt bad for ever doubting she would and was glad I had been napping for the past two hours instead of emailing her boss.

Anyways, I woke up and saw I had a missed call from a blocked number, which I just knew was her. Damn it! So I got the dog ready to go for a walk, tucked my phone into my bra and headed out. Not two steps out the door, it rings.

She asked me if I was sitting down, so I promptly sat down one of the deck chairs.

You’re like super pregnant, she said.

Oh my god. What was it?

One thousand, five hundred and eight.

I’m sorry can you repeat that?




I’ve never heard of such a thing!

How many did we put back?


Well, you probably have two happy babies in there. Or one very happy baby.

I go back on Wednesday for the repeat. I called DH on my walk and the man is in shock. Like, total shock. He was speechless!

I wanted nothing more than to get the walk over with, come home, eat!! (so hungry), and tell all you. But of course, the power was out. It’s still out. Rawr.

So yeah. That’s the number. I’m… probably in a little shock too and also speechless. Please universe, let it double!

    See, this is where an “I told you so” to the nurse would have been fantastic.
