This is by far the longest 8 days of my life, and it’s only been 5 🙁
My blood test is not until Monday and waiting “patiently” for that day to arrive is definitely not easy. Luckily I’ve been busy with teaching, working and baking! I’ll make my first attempt at a sweet cherry pie tomorrow afternoon – because even if I am not pregnant, I can at least eat like I am for another 3 days – enjoying it while I can.
There is a 50-50 chance the outcome will be unfavorable. What will we do then?
I can start by saying Monday night will not be pretty – I suggest holding off on phone calls that day just in case. I already have a great bottle of Malbec prepared (meaning = sitting in the wine fridge), priming, just in case I need it. I also have my mind set on a very long run, given that my last long run was New Year’s Day and I miss it so much. Finally, I’ll do everything in my power to forget about conception, IVF and all things baby-related for at least a night or two.
Of course, I am hopeful that we are on the opposite side of the outcomes. That would be nice. My evening would then probably consist of a celebratory glass of skim milk with ice, a long walk with the family and probably some leftover cherry pie…that is, if we don’t eat it all over the weekend.
So…signing off for now. Catch you on the other side 🙂
