The most wonderful phone call of my life just happened and I can't tell a soul.

I recognized the phone number of my clinic on my cell and decided to go ahead and pick it up. After all I tested yesterday and it was negative, the whitiest pee stick EVER in fact. Not even a hint of a line the next day. (I know because if I look at the trash I can still see it)

When I pick up the phone and it isn't my nurse Sandra I am surprised, it is Dr Hinkely instead.

Me: Hi

Her: Hi...

Me: I already know it is negative you don't have to tell me.

Her: I don't call with bad news.

Me: Huh?

Her: Your pregnant.

me: no.

Her: Yes

Me (sinking in a little) really?

her: yes

Me ((((((Laughing hysterically)))))))

Her: But it isn't as high as I would like it.

ME: okay?((((thinking: please be above 50))))))

Her: It is 54.

Me: So we test again.

Her: Saundra will call you and set it all up. She should call you in an hour.

Me: ((grinning like a Cheshire cat)) okay but I am PG?!

Her: Yes go and tell the world. Your pg. I'll talk to you soon OKAY?

ME: okay.

And that is it.

Now R has been adamit that ONE he is the first to know. So that means no posting this till I tell him and TWO That he find out from me in person.

So I called and am hoping to convince him to come home early. Hopefully in time to tell the nest.
