The craziest thing has happened. Read on.
I've been out of town for three days on business (finally got home today). Last night, after talking to R on the phone for a while, my cell phone battery started beeping to let me know it was nearly out of power. I didn't have my charger so I turned my phone off.
Well, this morning, I was sitting at breakfast with my co-workers and someone from the camp (we were staying at a 4-H camp in the middle of nowhere) came up and said I had a phone call. I didn't know what to expect. As it turns out, it was R calling to give me some interesting news and to freak out a little. She'd been trying to reach me on my cell all morning, but couldn't reach me.
The news? R decided when she woke this morning to do a pregnancy test, 4 days early. As soon as the test absorbed her urine, it turned unmistakably *positive*! She called the doctor's office and made an appointment to have bloodwork done right away.
Anyway, she went to the doctor this morning and everyone was so excited. I got home late this afternoon and we got a call with results from the quant test. R was at a level of 28, which the nurse was disappointed about, but it's the best results we've ever had and it's four days early. So, I'm thinking that's not so bad. Plus, the fact that her pregnancy test turned positive immediately says something to me. Whenever we've had a positive before, we've had to wait several minutes to get it and we've never gotten early results before.
R has to go back in for another quant test on Monday morning and we're hoping the results are what we need to see. All this waiting constantly is just driving us insane. If it's bad and won't work out, we want to know so we can deal with it. We've had some bad experiences and the truth is that even if we get the results we need, we still have weeks and weeks ahead before we'll be considered in-the-clear. But, as R says, this is the step we have to take to get there, so we'll just be happy for now with the results we have.
