Terror Watch

This morning, around 5:15am, I sat in the cold downstairs bathroom. My feet freezing on the stone floor, I spent the longest three minutes of my life listening to the wind howl. Waiting. Watching. Hoping that one pink line wouldn't turn into two. Silently cursing myself, SOB and the OBGYN who canceled my appointment, leaving me without birth control until December 26th.

All week I've been feeling funny. Nauseous, one day, crampy the next. My breasts have been so tender I could barely stand nursing Lucy. I was doing a little research about the Lactational Amenorrhea Method and read that once a baby is sleeping through the night, ovulation suppression stops, and women usually become fertile again.

Lucy has been sleeping through the night for almost a month.

Sam didn't sleep through the night until he was 9 months old. I got pregnant with Lucy when he was 10 months old.

Today, there was only one line. We'll see what shows up next friday.

WHAT?
This is my first visit... but if I am reading right, you need to see another doctor.

Thanks for coming by dallas meow! I love that profile image...

I'm currently working on finding a new doc. My old one isn't covered by my new insurance. C'est la vie!

There is a very obvious temporary solution to your problem: it wold guarantee that there remains only one line. However, I'm not going to mention it because, well, you know, that's no fun.

Geez! Quit being kid greedy, lady!

Here's hoping that the outcome is whatever you want it to be.

Hooo boy. Well, the two of you DO make the most beautiful babies...

Unless you instruct me otherwise, I'll be keeping my fingers (toes, eyes, arms...) crossed that you find a solitary line again next week!

WTF!!! AMY, why did you not mention this to me yesterday when we spent 4 hours together around babies and baby showers ... obviously it would have been an appropriate topic to mention! Keep me posted girlfriend! Love you, and your two (or maybe 3) babies.

Hope you keep us posted as to whether it stays a one line or two lines!
