Two Good Eggs

Two cracked eggs find the sunnyside (and funny side) of trying to conceive

Now You See It, Now You Don’t

on September 8, 2012

My eyes hurt. I’m sitting perched on the edge of the seat, iPad on my lap, with a pen laced through my fingers. It appears as though I’m examining a prospectus, but in reality it’s just a row of pregnancy test strips.  One of them had a second line this morning. I swore it did. And I have pictures to prove it. Even the girls online spotted it.

 I pick up each one in turn and proceed to violate the tests in equal measure. I bend them, turn them over, rub them, and bring them uncomfortably close to my face.  Cough up that faint line you little b#+@]!  I click the flashlight icon on my phone for detailed observation. Bright. Brighter. Brightest. A pivot of the wrist proves fruitless. Are you kidding me right now? There is NOTHING there. Zip. Notta. BFN. Again.
I make my way to the kitchen, attempting to talk myself off a ledge. I’ll just pound a bunch of water and hold it until tomorrow morning. Fourteen hours. No big deal. And if I end up with a UTI, so be it. No pain, no gain…No line, no pregnancy…No pregnancy, no baby…Awesome. Another month off HCG-free urine down the pipes.
I race back to the bathroom. I forgot to try the X-ray camera feature.

It’s still early, I guess.
