It still doesn't seem real yet, but I get to join y'all to.
My friend Pynki had early labor signs this AM, but the stopped when she went to the hospital. I am going to be at the birth since her dh doesn't deal well. We went to get something to eat after leaving the hospital. Then we walked around WalMart to try to get her labor going. While we were there I picked up a pg test since they are dirt cheap there. Figured I would take it tomorrow morning since I'm four days "late" (though I was five days late from my average cycle last month). We left and went to the mall to walk some more and when we went to go to the bathroom she asked if I was going to test. I figured since I only paid $4 for the test I might as well.
I peed on the stick and tossed it into my bag and went to wash my hands and we went walking some more. A few minutes later I checked back in on it. I was a bit in awe. I asked Pynki, "is that really a line?" She confirmed that it definitely was a line. With both my boys I knew 5-7 days before af was due that I was pg, but since I've nursed two for 2 years each, I don't get sore boobs anymore -- no symptom there. I didn't feel pg at all. Then, this afternoon I began to have those twingy little uterine cramps. I think I was having them yesterday and writing them off as gas.
Anyway, I'm surprised to be here. We are aparently very fertile (ds1 -- 2 months, ds2 -- first try (literally the first "try"), #3 -- to lazy to get protection one night the month before we were going to ttc. I am too blessed.
I was on anti nausea meds with both my prior pgs that kept me out of the hospital. Hoping beyond hope to avoid it this time -- but I doubt it.
