This is how much I love you

I am borrowing someone’s laptop to post this from the convention center.

Repeat beta = 166.

U/S May 10.

What the hell do I do for the next 12 days?!?

ETA: I found one spot in my friend’s house where I can get wireless internet from her neighbor’s. Hooray, hoorah. For Allison and anyone else who was curious: Beta hcg levels refer to the hormone your body produces when it is pregnant. The initial number is supposed to double within 48 hours. Which it did. Hoorah, hooray.

Oh, and I’m having dinner with Julia on Sunday. How cool am I?

  1. Yay yay yay!!!!

    Congrats, ladies!

  2. This post has been removed by the author.

  3. Oh my GOD, OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD!!! Whoooooooooo! Congratulations! Go emby, go.

    Chew your nails. Learn how to knit. Go in the corner, stand on your head and spit quarters. You’ll need the money for diapers, strollers, cribs, car seats, babysitters…..

    *doing a happy little, don’t-piss-off-the-embryo-gods dance*

    (That was me, deleting, because in my excitement, I forgot how to spell.)

  4. I take it from the comments and lack of devastation that those numbers are good. Now you do what you’ve been doing all along, wait and see and try not to chew any body parts off.


    Ditto what Julia said.

    To her list of things to do, I’d only add this–


    A whole lot.

  6. So glad you thought of us anxiously awaiting the news! Congrats. Hope the next two weeks go by quickly.

  7. Woohoo!!

  8. I’ll pass my mantra on to you: “Woo woo woo, go feetie! Go embryo!”

  9. Well, I still have no idea what a beta is or what the corresponding number means, but apparently the news is positive (oh, look at me and my double meaning…). 🙂

    Hugs and love to you and Pili.

  10. woooooo hooooooooooooo!!!
    Float on cloud nine for a few days…I know I would!!!

  11. Thank you for the clarification. I am even more jubilant now that I know why I’m jubilant! Woohoo!

  12. This is such freaking great news! I’m still excited!!

  13. OK, I’m popping on to say a big Wahooo!!!! CONGRATS!!!!

    I didn’t comment before because I didn’t want to jinx anything, but it looks to be safe enough to comment now 🙂

    And you will love Julia. She’s the best 🙂

  14. Hooray, hooray! Are we all allowed to celebrate for you now? Hope that you find enough to keep youselves busy that the next 12 days don’t feel twice as long as the 2ww! :o)

  15. Art Sweet: What great news! I was too busy to blog seriously this week and when I checked in at your blog, I saw the beta. Fabulous! I can’t wait to hear the Ultrasound results. You go girls!


    fantabulous news.
    wonderful news.

  17. Sounds like congrats are in order, so congrats!

    Here from Michele’s …

  18. Congrats yay and woohoo 🙂

  19. Congratulations!

    So so so happy for you.

  20. Oh, congratulations!!!! Sending you lots of “grow embryo” thoughts.

  21. Congratulations!!!!!!

    And enjoy dinner with Julia. She’s one of the best.

  22. Honestly – I leave you alone for only ONE WEEK and I come back and you’re fucking pregnant? And you’re now one of THOSE couples that people will talk about to comfort others…. “I know this couple that were on their last try and were narrowing down adoption agencies and they got pregnant! You can too!”

    I am sooooooo happy for you girls!
