What a Day!

5:00am: Alarm goes off - exhausted.

5:45am: Leave with the hubs - go to surgery center

6:00am: Check in, fill out paperwork, hubs go back for surgery

7:30am: Surgery starts - I'm scared. Last night I had a dream that he died in surgery, and then I found out I was pregnant with twins! Woke up this morning petrified!

9:00am: Doctor tells me everything went well.

9:30am: Hubs is starting to wake up, and I get to go back to see him. He's having a really hard time waking up, and when he does wake up, he starts to have a lot of pain.

12:00pm: Finally get cleared to leave. Hubs is still in a lot of pain, but he has figured out that he needs to stop taking the drugs they offer if he ever wants to leave.

12:30pm: Drop off the hubs at home, go get his prescriptions filled, go to store to get clear liquids for him, freak out a bit (cry in car - so overwhelmed by his surgery).

1:30 pm: Change for work, go into work. Do a little work, freak out some more, give up.

4:00pm: Get home, find out the hubs is ok and feeling a little better, wait on him a bit, and chill out in bed with him.

7:00pm: Eat some food. Realize that all week, I can't eat dinner - it's always disgusting. Mention this to the hubs, he urges again to POAS (seriously, when did I become the strong one?). I say no, this goes on for about an hour.

8:00pm: Go to grocery store (forget what I said about being strong). Get annoyed that they don't have FRER in stock. Settle for generic brand.

8:30pm: POAS. Insist that the hubs look at it - I don't want to. He's never looked at one before (I always do it early in the morning before he wakes). He comes out of the bathroom where I had put the stick, and said, "Honey, you're pregnant!" It's the most beautiful, super dark, 2 lined, generic test you have ever seen - with evening urine!

9:00pm: Go to bed. My drugged up husband is happy, but can't show me - he's in too much pain (feel so bad for him!). We watch TV.

11:30pm: Give up on sleeping. Get up, lay on couch, read, finally get up and write this post.

Y'all, I'm pregnant!!! And I can't sleep - too excited!!!

  17. I'm probably going to get some flack about it, but I just had to comment even though I'm at work.

    Congratulations!! Your symptoms were sounding awesome and I'm so excited you got a nice dark positive!! It could be twins ( I can't recall how many dpo you are) or maybe your dream is wrong on both accounts and it's a single.

    Wishing hubby a quick recovery. Maybe this news will spur that on too!

  31. I admit, I skipped to the end! I KNEW this was your "I'm pregnant" post. And I read your post before anyone else's in my reader list, because I've been waiting for this one!!! See, i told you the FET would work! :)

    I am so so so super excited for you!!!!!!!! I am sure you will be scared, but this has such HIGH chances of being your take-home baby-- it's practically guaranteed! I LOVE that your husband found out first and was the one to tell you that you're pregnant-- it will be a memory to cherish and a story to tell your child!
