What To Say, What To Say...

(Drumming my fingertips on the table) Hmm, let's see... Shall I write about being moody beyond belief, and forcing Jim to engage in an "assessing the health of our relationship, i.e. do we talk enough do we cuddle enough do we have enough romance yada yada yada" discussion at ten thirty last night? Shall I talk about how Eli seems to have digested my moodiness and has been fussing and/or screeching almost nonstop for two days no matter what I do?
OR do I write about how THE SPOTTING IS GONE AGAIN?! And again, lasted only for an hour! OH MY GOD WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!! I am getting ridiculously freaked out, and the two negative tests are not really comforting me because A, it is possibly just too early for a positive to show up anyways and B, when I was testing with Eli, THREE different tests showed up negative until I finally got a blood test. I finally called the OB's office to talk (read: flip out on) a nurse, only to be told that all the nurses were busy. Was it an emergency? I was asked kindly.
YOU TELL ME, people, YOU TELL ME!

Ahem. On a completely different note (except not that different, as it still involves babies. You: "Shocker.") I have a lovely little linky which you should totally go check out. I WANT TO SEE THIS so bad! The Business of Being Born is a documentary about birth practices in America produced by Ricki Lake. LOOKS AWESOME.

"You tell me" is a brilliant response. Can you go get a blood test so that you don't have to keep stressing yourself out over this? Or is it too soon or something?

There, there. It'll be okay!

And I really want to see that documentary! How pretty is Ricki Lake?! OMG!

Well, I called back this afternoon and they offered to do one (it was pretty hilarious, the nurse was all, "You haven't been using protection EVERY SINGLE TIME? REALLY?" And I was all sheepish and wincing and, "Um, it was just the once!") But I opted to wait another week, because she said breakthrough bleeding isn't that uncommon while breastfeeding. BUT that if I keep randomly spotting the next couple days and never get a period, then I should have a blood test.

I'm glad the nurse offered a blood test. If you're still in the dark next week, I'd definitely go get one.

Well, I like that they're willing to get a bloodtest, but I can tell the waiting is agony.

That movie/documentary looks awesome. In just that little trailer it gave me a LOT to think about.

Let me see if I understand the situation.

1) They offered you a blood test.

2) You OPTED TO WAIT A WEEK.

3) When we are DYING OF CURIOSITY.

Is that about right?

I don't have any children, never been pregnant, etc., but I am so crazy paranoid about getting pregnant that I have two packs of tests on hand, and routinely use one if my period isn't there. at. the. exact. specified. time. I'm insane in other words.
