I am a little Wound. Up. this morning. I am not a morning person at all, but I woke up as perky as could be, and stared at the ceiling, counting and recounting days and trying to figure out if today was like, RIDICULOUSLY early to be testing or if it was just KINDA early to be testing. I finally reached the conclusion that today would be a total money-down-the-drain test, especially since I have never once gotten an early positive result even when I definitely was pregnant, so I got up and went about the morning routine without breaking out the hpt. But OH it was hard.
Then I called the doctor's office to see if my progesterone levels from my blood draw yesterday were in yet, even though the lady at the lab said probably not until tomorrow morning. And she was right. But I'm still glad I called, 'cause the nurse on the phone said they usually don't call the patient at all unless the results are abnormal. I replied, a little frantically, "Well, I want to know EXACT NUMBERS!" She said she'd make a note in my chart that I WANT TO BE CALLED WITH THE EXACT NUMBER PLEASE RIGHT AWAY KTHANX!
THEN I got online and checked out normal progesterone levels for a day 21 draw, both in a regular cycle (at least 8) and in a pregnant cycle (at least 16). So I am all set to obsessively evaluate my exact result and jump to a conclusion! Though even that will have an element of iffyness, since with Eli my day 21 draw was a 9, which is WAY LOW and made me think there was no way I was pregnant, and yet by day 30 it was up to 19, which was acceptable for a healthy pregnancy.
And, uh, THEN I went to peeonastick.com and carefully checked out all the pictures of positive results people have gotten as early as 10 days past ovulation. Pondered whether or not I chose the right hpt. Pondered whether I maybe SHOULD test tomorrow after all (tomorrow being 9 to 10 days past.) You never know.
Drank my second cup of coffee and decided I needed some protein, so I heated up a little pan and cracked in an egg. The egg? Had two yolks. I swear to you, I felt my heart SKIP A BEAT. Because, you know, IT'S A SIGN!
Boy, I sure just take things easy and go with the flow and don't over think things AT ALL, huh?
