Pins and needles

Well, there is some good news in the Land of IF today. Life in the White House just got a great first beta. Things weren't looking good... some neg HPTs and low count in their donor sample, but so far, something good came from it all. Fingers crossed that everything continues to look good.

But there is another member of our club waiting on their beta results, Emily. If you haven't been following Emily's blog, you've been missing out. But today very well may be the end of her and Steve's pursuit of biological children. She posted her HPT the other day, and I'm a member of the crowd that see the faintest, of faint lines in there... but because HPT's are devices of evil, we must wait on the Beta. Although there is much doubt, today I choose to hope.

Speaking of betas and such, I'm on a quest today to determine what lab I should use to get my progesterone drawn at tomorrow. I have about 3 choices and being that I am impatient, I would prefer to use the lab that will get results the quickest. Unfortunately, all three would have to send off the blood to somewhere else for it to be processed. But in my research, I have found one lab that processes blood just up the road where my RE is located... but they have 4 or 5 labs up there, so I'm not sure which one actually has the processing center on site (if any).

So, my great plan for tomorrow is to get my P4 drawn here with the lab that processes just up the road, and while there, fish for any and all info on where exactly one must go to get a beta processed in less than 24 hours. If driving a half hour means that I could find out beta results before the end of the day, I'll make sure the gas tank stays filled. I really hope I get to the point where this info becomes important.

God, good luck. I am still waiting to find out WTF is up with Lumpy.

Those tests have always taken me a day to get back.

I swear I can get my cat's blood processed faster than my own.
