But I Thought They Were Over the Horizon...

The sharks that is.

Remember how sick of them I was?

This morning when I woke up, it was dark and stormy, but it felt very cuddle-ful in bed. I looked at Partner and said, "I'm pregnant."

Why in the world would I try to call out the jinxes like that? Now my mother says the world really does not work on jinx principles, but do you believe her?

I'm bleeding. Or spotting. Or whatever. It's bright red, which by now we all know is the scariest color out there. Dr. BusyBusyBusy has me resting for today, drinking many fluids, and coming to see him tomorrow at 12:30. Even if everything is okay, being scared shitless, which I am right now, for 21 hours and 30 minutes cannot be good for me. I'm terrified to pee because I can't stand seeing the toilet paper.

Bright freaking red. Attracts sharks, dontcha know?

Oh, Katie, I'm so sorry! Damn those sharks. Can't they come up with some repellent already?

Sending all my good thoughts your way too. I really hope this is just some run of the mill bleeding, and cricket is just fine!

Like everyone out there, I'm sending good thoughts your way. At this very moment, I'm picturing you as Fonzie, clad in black leather and jumping that damn shark.

Bleeding during pregnancy should be outlawed (I had some at 19 weeks, turned out to be from a low-lying placenta). Sending you positive thoughts that everything is OK.

No. No. I won't allow this. Poke the shark in the eye. Give it a twinkie. Swim like a sonofabitch.

I promise to keep you, Partner and Babe in my thoughts until I hear from you tomorrow.

I'm keeping you all in my thoughts. I had spotting for the first few weeks of my pregnancy and was terrified, so I know how scary this time is. Will be anxiously awaiting your update tomorrow.

I'm sending gentle nurse shark vibes your way--they look scary, but they're harmless.

Katie,
Bleeding at this stage with IVF is so common it is even expected. Even with my non-IVF pregnancy, I spotted at 10 weeks, my son is fine. I know it is scary when it is happening. I will believe for you that all is fine. It is.

That's it: This baby is grounded. At least for 7 1/2 more months. And then he or she can come out.
