Someone on a blog I follow refers to their partner as TSP for “The Silent Partner” which is a pseudonym I highly respect and wish I had thought of first. Alas, I did not and La got stuck with a less than hilarious nom de blog. Sorry baby.
For the majority of the blog journey, La’s involvement has been limited to asking me, semi-regularly, “what’s up with your blog friend’s these days?” And I’ll recount to her your victories, losses, hilarious stories. She doesn’t always know all of you as individuals the way I do, but she keeps up pretty well.
But she’s taken a more active interest lately, and has started following this blog more religiously (thank God I had the foresight not to talk any shit. Not that I had any shit to talk . . .) and is particularly interested in the comments from the peanut gallery on things such as the darkness of urine HPT lines . . .
I took this morning’s picture at approximately the 5 minute mark. However, La was quick to point out that it got darker. Which is, in fact true. She wanted me to note this. She wanted, also, for me to post a new picture. Since I left the tests at home, she obliged by sending me this:
Now, please note that ALL of the tests in this picture are dry, which means they are all technically ‘invalid’ since we a ‘reading’ them past the accurate time frame. But, I think La’s point is important – the test did get darker (within the read time) and continues to be darker now.
At any rate, thanks for indulging my crazy. Some of you have wisely suggested we wait to take any additional tests. And that advice is sound. But I’m not taking it, because I am fully involved in this thing now and, well, I think I need to see it through. I recognize the insanity of what I am engaging with, and I’m doing so anyway.
I do think that by any accounting, the booster shot should have been gone by this morning, and any positive is probably a good sign. Thanks for affirming that, and for being honest with me, y’all.
Hopefully I have won some points with my hot wife today.
