So I woke up early to use the bathroom (for the third time this week!) and felt nauseous as all get-out. I figured if my temp was still up then I'd go poas. Well, I ended up confusing myself because of the faintness.

Everything says the line can be fainter, so this counts, right? I've got a strip and another early midstream test, but I want to wait 'til tomorrow and Saturday.

I certainly have felt off enough this past week to believe it but I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around this, how? I mean, I know *how* but it's completely unfair as one of my closest friends, who's due in September, had to try for over a year and go the Clomid and IUI route.

Left the test on the bathroom sink for DH to discover when he got up for work. He came over to the bed and kissed me and asked, "Does this mean what I think it means?" He couldn't stop beaming.

Compared to a lot I've seen (and gotten) that is a VERY dark positive

No squinting at all to see that second line!

Squeeeeeeeeeee! Thanks for looking, this is exactly what I was hoping you wonderful women would say.

FF tells me I have an EDD of 01/01/10... I really hope if everything goes well and sticks that it is a January baby, my b-day is 12/1, DS's is 12/23, and DH's is 12/30, we need some variety!

Since moving to Massachusetts from Arizona 8 years ago, March has gone from my favorite to my *least* favorite month. So, yeah, what the heck else is there to do when it's raw and unpredictable outside.

bublegirl, I'm only too happy to indulge.

Miriam My mom said this baby will be born January 3, crazy! It was also her brother's birthday and we have this weirdness in our family where people are born on each other's birthday or on the same day of the month. Didn't know it was Tolkien's birthday, I'm actively hoping for a 01/03 delivery now!
