A Guest Blog

Dear Readers,

Kami has been asking me to be a guest blogger for months and today seemed like the day to do it. Please allow me to introduce myself, I am Brad, the DH, the house boy, He who catches spiders and cleans up icky stuff...

As you may know, today is the day when Kami was to get blood drawn for the first beta. All of us were tired after a long night of firework watchin'. Kami got up and left before LB & I woke up. When I woke up, I wondered if she'd POAS (For you non acronym types, this means taking a home pregnancy test). My mind wandered from her being happy when she got home, to sadly resigned.

When she walked in, I immediately asked. To my great surprise -she hadn't POAS'd. But she was sadly resigned. She then proposed that we walk to our favorite neighborhood diner for breakfast. Never ones to pass up breakfast -LB & I leapt at the opportunity.

As we walked we talked about the coming news. Should we answer the phone when they call? Wouldn't it be great if it worked? Wouldn't it be nice if something went easy? There were lots of sad sighs...

Then the phone rang. I can only tell Kami's side but this is why I'm writing to you...
Clinic: Wah-wah-wah?
Kami: This is her.
Clinic: Wah-wah-wah.
Kami: Oh?
Clinic: Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah.
Kami: OH! MY! GOD!
Kami (Whispered to me): Good news.
Clinic: Wah-wah-wah.
Kami (To me): Seventy-nine.
Kami: Excuse my language but (Edited for our younger readers) BUCK ME!
Me: That's good, right?
Kami (To me): Yes.
Me: What'd we have with LB?
Kami: Normally we would expect around a hundred, is it different for an FET?
Clinic: Wah-wah-wah.
Kami: I am shocked...
Clinic: Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah-wah. Wah-wah-wah?
Kami: Uh-huh. OK. Thanks. Bye.

So... There you have it (Or at least what I remember). We have passed the second milestone on our challenge for LB mk II, LB's LB or whatever we decide to call this one!! Hopefully it will stick around!!

This is such great news- just what we all wanted to hear but were afraid to ask. Many of us know all to well what highs and lows this journey is filled with.

Kami! Holy shit, I am soooo thrilled for you. I TOLD YOU THOSE BUCKING DOLLAR STORE STICKS SUCK!

That is just awesome, truly. Just think about it girl, you and Brad may actually be talking about that bigger house vs. plunking another 25K elsewhere.

Crazy happy for you! Hugs!
