It Always Happens This Way at 6dpt, Doesn’t It?

You write a post about how it’s all over and there’s no chance….and then…


Yes, my friends who did not give up hope, I just peed on a stick and got a faint PLUS.
For today, I am PREGNANT.  I will pee on another stick Saturday and Sunday and then Monday we’ll find out just how pregnant I am with the beta!!!

I think the baby was just waiting for Chicken to get home (which she did last night) so we could be all be together.  That was the plan all along.

Me:  OMG, look at this.
Chicken:  What is it?  Oh this one’s different.  What does that mean?  Did it work?
Me:  It worked!  It’s faint.
Chicken:  Oh!  OK, I’m not going to get too excited yet (trying to protect her heart)
Me:  NO!  Get excited!  I need you f*cking excited! (heart on a platter)
Chicken:  Oh!  I’m very excited!  Very excited!

WOW.  Here we go again.  Please let this one work.  Stick baby STICK!

    I was just getting ready to comment on your last blog that you tested a little early – we didn’t get a faint faint faint line until 6 dpt – so I wasn’t giving up hope for you two.

    BUT – this is EXCELLENT NEWS!!! CONGRATULATIONS! It all starts with that faint line and next thing you know, there’s a baby in your arms in 9 months.

    Can’t wait to see you both on Sunday!!! LOTS TO CELEBRATE!

    Yah!!! Congrats. I was thinking about you all day yesterday. Funny that you would break down and POAS early when you have been so good about not doing that before. It should be faint at 6dpt. I have some extra pregnancy tests I can give away, including a digital test I think. I’ll bring them on Sunday.

    Congrats on the POAS results! I’m hoping the lines keep getting darker and the beta goes well on Monday!

    We got a BFP on our beta last Friday. So, I’m greatly enjoying seeing others have success too.
