7 Quick Takes Friday

** 1 **

Tonight Atticus and I are going to see the new Disney movie: The Princess and the Frog! I am really excited, and Atticus…loves me very much. 🙂

I know some people are down on Disney princesses, but I love them. When I was a little girl, after my mom died, I thought that being mother-less made me like the Disney princesses. Just think about it; I think all but one or two of them had mothers who died when they were young.

Snow white –
Cinderella
Ariel
Belle
Jasmine
Pocahontas (?)

I was in good company. Any bets as to whether or not the newest princess will also be a mother-less daughter?

I’d like to warn anyone who is considering asking God to increase their trust in Him, don’t do it unless you are prepared to be put into a situation over which you have absolutely no control. Just be forewarned.

Here’s why: As I blogged about recently, Atticus and I are trying to conceive. Right now, I am on luteal phase day 18, when my LP is never more than 11-12 days long. It’s never been longer than that the whole time I’ve been charting (except, obviously for the pregnancy).

This should be cause for celebration, right? Nope. Because, you see, I have now taken 4 (count’em) negative pregnancy tests. Any my temps, while still slightly elevated, have dipped from the shift at the beginning of LP.

I have some pregnancy symptoms, but no positive test. My doctor has told me to wait a week, and come in for a blood test if I haven’t had my period or a positive test. WHAT? I’ve already waited one week, I’m supposed to wait another???

Anyway, I am completely unsure what to think. I’m not going to get my hopes up, when it’s entirely possible that rather than being pregnant, I’ve got some sort of hormonal imbalance.

If I am pregnant, then all of this anxiety and waiting will be more than worth it. If I am not pregnant, well, thanks God…it’s been a wild ride. But I think I’ll sit the next one out.

I actually don’t have anything else to share this Friday, other than, if you know of a story of some woman who didn’t have a positive test until after a week after her period (or later), and went on to have a healthy pregnancy, now would be the time to pull that ace out of the hole and share it with me.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Just came over from Michelle’s blog, and I have to say that it took 8 pregnancy tests for me to finally get a positive result. And now I have a beautiful 9-week-old daughter! I still can’t figure out why it happened that way….so strange.

  2. Actually I believe the new Disney Princess has a mother and am hopefully going to see this too in the next few days! My hubby is excited because he loves the new villain!

    And you generally have to wait until a few days before the normal time for your period to start to get an accurate reading on those tests! So good luck!

  3. Amen to #2 – while my situation has/had nothing to do with pregnancy, I totally know what you are feeling as far as deciding to trust God and then feeling like, huh?

    As for #3 – know that I am praying so hard that it’s a baby!

  4. “I like to whisper, too..” So funny!

    I have no advice about calming down concerning the pregnancy. Just this week I took two but then my cycle started. ((hugs))

  5. You are very much in prayer re: #3. Unfortunately I have stories both of un-detected pregnancies and of cysts keeping bbts high. So I’ll just pray.

    And those videos are insane. Insane. And I watched both.

  6. i don’t know what i’m more excited about, your advent wait or mine (ok, that’s a lie but i am excited about yours!). any updates on the home front?
