Postaphobic

So just like I didn't want to get the phone call and relay the news to S., I don't want to write a post either. It's..complicated. See, here's the thing. We have a dilemma. It's a dilemma that this fine lady articulated far better than I ever could. The nice IVF nurse told my voicemail (because I heard my phone ring, then threw it down on the car seat and dashed into the market to buy a birthday cake for my mother-in-law) that the test is positive and the numbers look good. But it's two weeks to the day, people. Two weeks!! So, just like the aforementioned blogger, we're just too scared to say it out loud. But, being faithful bloggers, felt obliged to say it because we feel we owe it to all of you for being there for us. That being said...S. has a few words for you. (Hey, this is our first ever joint post! I think this is a momentous occasion on more than one level...)

Those of you whom I know in real life...I'm freaking out and am not ready to talk about it yet. I can't even type the word pregnancy. Let's wait a few weeks/months and then we'll explode with happiness together. It's too damn early. Please. But thank you for thinking those thoughts (keeping 'em coming) and for getting us this far, we really do love you.

OMG-I'm in a state of shock.

I'll try to stay calm but I AM SO FRIGGING EXCITED FOR YOU. I have been checking all day.

I know what you mean....for weeks after our positive test and betas I kept saying "you might be pregnant" when, in fact, she WAS.

Oh my god. It's almost midnight, and I've just been at the bar with coworkers, but I'm sitting in my living room BAWLING and saying "Oh My GOD!" over and over. I don't think I've ever been happier to read anything EVER. CONGRATS, my loves...I've never wanted to be in MA more, so that I could hug you and cry and hug you some more.

Woo Hoo!

I'm a couple of days behind you and oneofhismoms, but had a negative pee stick this morning (still a bit early, though).

When I told Shrike about oneofhismoms' positive test, she said "these things come in threes, you know" - now I read this.

Keeping my fingers crossed that my pee sticks will turn around in the next couple of days and I can complete the trifecta :-)

Faith said...

I get the need for caution, especially with all you two have been through to get to this point. But I am excited for you and will keep sending good vibes that things move along swimmingly.

Julie said...

I don't even know you and its hard for me to contain my excitement. I can't imagine what it's doing to you guys. Sending wonderful positive sticky vibes.

oneofhismoms said...

IT WAS THE ENERGY! All that energy everyone was sending you guys! It stopped by in NYC and enough of it stayed with me for it to work over here, too. COOOOOOOOLLLL!

I didn't think I could be happier. Or more scared. I say fingers still crossed. Eh?

I huge virtual hug from one faint line to another.

I checked the blog a hundred times yesterday. I finally went to bed at 10. I checked it the first thing this morning and was ecstatic to read the good news. I totally understand why you are cautious, and I will give you guys a few weeks to digest this great news before I give you a ring. I can't stress how happy I am for you. L is looking forward to having a little playmate he can visit in MA. Again, I am so happy for you both!!!!
