This is how much I love you

I am borrowing someone's laptop to post this from the convention center.

Repeat beta = 166.

U/S May 10.

What the hell do I do for the next 12 days?!?

ETA: I found one spot in my friend's house where I can get wireless internet from her neighbor's. Hooray, hoorah. For Allison and anyone else who was curious: Beta hcg levels refer to the hormone your body produces when it is pregnant. The initial number is supposed to double within 48 hours. Which it did. Hoorah, hooray.

Oh, and I'm having dinner with Julia on Sunday. How cool am I?

Oh my GOD, OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD!!! Whoooooooooo! Congratulations! Go emby, go.

Chew your nails. Learn how to knit. Go in the corner, stand on your head and spit quarters. You'll need the money for diapers, strollers, cribs, car seats, babysitters.....

*doing a happy little, don't-piss-off-the-embryo-gods dance*

(That was me, deleting, because in my excitement, I forgot how to spell.)

I take it from the comments and lack of devastation that those numbers are good. Now you do what you've been doing all along, wait and see and try not to chew any body parts off.

Ditto what Julia said.

To her list of things to do, I'd only add this--


A whole lot.

Well, I still have no idea what a beta is or what the corresponding number means, but apparently the news is positive (oh, look at me and my double meaning...). :-)

Hugs and love to you and Pili.

And you will love Julia. She's the best :)

Honestly - I leave you alone for only ONE WEEK and I come back and you're fucking pregnant? And you're now one of THOSE couples that people will talk about to comfort others.... "I know this couple that were on their last try and were narrowing down adoption agencies and they got pregnant! You can too!"

I am sooooooo happy for you girls!
