The Call

This has been the.longest.weekend.EVER.

Despite my best efforts to distract myself, I have been antsy for at least the past 24 hours... and keep thinking of how many hours left I have 'til The Call...when the RE office will give me the news on whether my beta test is positive or negative for pregnancy.

Geez, I start to freak out just reading those words!

And of course, as luck would have it, the "re-engagement" kick-off of the PFH (see post here) starts tomorrow. Kick-off starts at 1 pm, and there are back-to-back meetings 'til 5:30. The call? I'm guessing it will come in around 2-3:30, which is when they typically make the calls out to patients for dosage instructions, etc.

Which means it will most likely fall smack-dab in the middle of our meetings.

Which means I'll have to step out to take the news.

Which also means that I'll have to re-join the meeting afterwards... no matter what the outcome.

I'm a little worried about that part of it... if it's bad news, how in the world will I keep it together? How will I endure more hours of meetings?

On the flip side, if it's positive--how will I contain myself for that long? Or pay attention to absolutely anything that goes on?

I wish I could call in sick for the afternoon, but with my boss out on vacation this week, there's no one else that could sit in on the meetings to represent my department. Just me.

One day. One more day of this torture, and then we'll know, either way.

No matter what, I promise to post the result.

For those of you who actually know the woman behind the realm of Blog.ger, I would ask that you not share the news with anyone--mutual friends, etc... We plan on staying quiet about it, even if it's positive, for at least the first 8-10 weeks. As my DH says, we want to make sure things "stick." (very eloquent, isn't he?) But I'm in complete agreement with him.

Any idea what I can do to stay focused tomorrow? Outside of legal stimulants (coffee, oh how I miss you!) or prescription drugs (, I hear you work wonders)? ;-)

Monday evening, you can't get here fast enough!


  1. Good luck! It's very hard to stay distracted and I never found anything that helped truthfully... sorry!

  2. I wouldn't take the news during the meeting. Let the voice mail get it. Good or bad news, you wont be able to concentrate!! Good luck!!

  3. i agree with rach. can you let it go to voice mail? then you and dh can listen to it together? that would be great either way you would have each others support! maybe you could call the nurse after you listen together. blessings to you either way. you know im always here. love you sweet friend!

  4. Been thinking of you all weekend!! Praying for you!!

  5. I was going to say the same thing as Rach and Olivia! Can you leave your phone at your desk or in your car and just check the message after the meetings? I wouldn't be able to take the call. The news is just so emotional, either way. I so hope it's positive! Take care, I'll be praying for you tomorrow!

  6. Have been and will continue to be praying for you! I like the VM idea... although not sure if I'd be strong enough to leave my phone and not answer!

  7. I agree with everyone about the VM. There is no way I would be able to compose myself finding out good or bad news. Either way I would be an emotional train wreck!! Praying!!!

  8. Oh that is not a fun palce to be. I think letting it go to VM is a good idea. Thne you can deal with it , good or bad, when you are ready. Praying for good news!
