Before Manuela has a heart attack..........

That heading gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. Like I am part of a huge family. Manuela wants an update and I dare not disobey. I got up at 5:30 am and poas. Negative! Went back to bed with my heart pounding and feeling very down. Then I realized it was a different test from the one I had used previously and I went in to check the instructions. It wasn't an early detection test- Does that matter? I really don't know, but in this case I guess it did. I went to the drugstore and bought some more of my trusty tests. B say they're the tests with the plus sign already on them!!!!!! I also bought a few more early tests of different brands. I wasn't able to test again until about 1:30pm with the trusted one and............. It was positive! Phew! I came home a while ago and B refused to believe that a plus is a plus.( He wants it to look like the plus sign on the box!!!!!!!!!!!!) Well, we know that's not going to happen. So for furthur studies I peed in a cup and dipped three different brands.(My habit is costing me a fortune). Two out of three were positive and one said the word "pregnant". So am I pregnant? I guess I won't really know the answer to that until I get the beta number on Saturday.

Yes! Yes! YES!! You are pregnant!! I had problems with the FRED tests, the Walmart brand always seemed better to me. Can't wait to hear those beta numbers!!

I think it's a resounding YES! Sounds good! The digital one's especially are good, because they aren't exactly early detection!

Congratulations and sticky thoughts.

(the habit is hard to break, but I'll break it whenever I want, really)
