Yes, miracles do happen. This is another Christmas Miracle and it's happening to me.
I wouldn't ever say that I was. . . the word that shall not be spoken. . . before the beta. But the pee sticks are ridiculously dark and getting darker. The one that I took last night is almost as dark as the control line at 7 dp 5 dt (12 DPO).
I know how difficult it can be to read about a "p" announcement, especially depending on where you are in your own search for that elusive state. Please know that I appreciate all of your support and sticky vibes so very much more than I can ever say.
Also, I am so scared. Excited, yes, of course. Over-the-moon thrilled? We'll have to wait on that for a bit. You see, "the word that shall not be spoken" has never ended happily for us. It has always ended with rivers of tears and shattered dreams. Please, please, please let this Christmas Miracle be what we have been waiting and praying for for so very long.
