Three stripes and I'm...?

Moving to a new city not only rearranges one's sense of place, it may cause one to lose all sense of time. What happened to June? It evaporated somewhere back there in a frenzy of tape and cardboard boxes.

Certain things I can recall: Dinners with new colleagues. My parents' lovely visit. The concert we attended with a pair of new friends. Having briefly absented myself during the concert when I grew woozy and started seeing spots.

Certain things I can't remember at all. Like the exact date of my "LMP" in May. After a year of trying to get pregnant amid haywire cycles, I'd lately stopped paying attention.

But then my body started having funny symptoms. So I dug out the last pregnancy test... which showed itself confident blue.

I've since taken two more tests.



God, I'll be so grateful if this is real.

CONGRATULATIONS! (Assuming it is indeed real.) Now I understand some of your concerns about mother=pod person in some of your previous posts. Just the fact that you're worrying about it means that it won't happen.

Anyway, congratulations again!

See, I was so excited for you that I got my own pseudonym wrong! (Duh...)

Hey, that's fabulous. What NewK said about pod-personality -- if you're worrying about it, you won't go poddy.

I assume that blue is positive? If so, congratulations indeed!! Is a doctor's visit in the offing to make sure that this is, in fact, for real? Keep us updated. How exciting!
