Christmas Miracles

Miracles do happen. This, I know for sure. Check out THIS Christmas Miracle that happened just yesterday to one of our fellow IFers. It brings tears to my eyes and goosebumps to my arms.

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.

Praying and praying you get your Christmas wish.

And I dropped a bug in Santa's ear too, just in case. :)

Lots and lots of luck and love to you!

I hope everything goes well. Glad the Pee sticks are going in your favor. Even though some of us are still in the trenches we are happy for you. I'll keep praying for good betas. True Christmas Miracles!
