Two Strong Little Pink Lines

Monday, May 27, 2013

This is absolute bananas...

I am a really regular gal, cycle wise. So, I knew when I was late. We were not trying to conceive at all. But, we did get a little lax with the birth control one time, so I know exactly when this happened. With my balanced translocation and being in my thirties, I thought I was looking at an inconvenient D&C in my future. Honestly, I was just hoping that I wouldn't miscarry one day at work or until after Kat's babyshower in a few weeks was over. I didn't even take a test. I did tell the family, but just as a "Whoops, this has happened and I'll let you know when I'm getting the D&C." I never ever imagined that the faint blood I'm used to seeing around 6 weeks gestation would never show up. After at least 7 losses and the odds against a BT carrier who can blame me? I wasn't being pessimistic, I was being realistic.

I kept planning the shower and going to work and nothing happened. Then, we had the shower and nothing happened. My sisters kept telling me to take a test and I kept saying it was a waste of money. They kept telling me to make an appointment and I said I would when I started to bleed. Finally, we picked up a Dollar Store test down the road in Auburn and I looked down expecting to see the faint lines I am used to seeing (low HCG = faint test lines = BT pregnancy = inevitable miscarriage) but this is what I saw instead. Two strong little pink lines.

So, I have an appointment and we will see what comes next.

I hope I am always the kind of person who sees and rainbow and says "RAINBOW!!!"
