I am SUCH a fucking dickhead

and Thalia has ridden in on a white horse to rescue me from the corner of Science Stupidity I’d painted myself into. Not the first time the lady has kindly extracted me from there, either.

If I dilute urine with, respectively, 50% and 90% water, my peestick series looks a wee bit different, no pun intended.

And furthermore, since late on Saturday, which was a lovely but tiring day (my pottery kicks ass; my burlesque dancing… well, also kicks ass after a fashion, mainly if you’re the unlucky girl stood directly in front of my uncontrolled limbs), I once again feel rough as old boots in the exhausted/light-headed/churny-tummy departments. Brownie points for everyone that reminded me that pregnancy symptoms are fickle visitors.

Conclusion: I am a tending-towards-neurotic bear of very little brain indeed who is pissing her readership off quite spectacularly with these rollercoasters of Up and Down. And if YOU are cross with me for the conflicting updates, spare a thought for the Hairy Farmer, who is rather more emotionally – and fiscally – invested than most, and has Suffered. 

Scan is at 4pm today. I am, naturally, keyed up to a fair level of apprehension, but am not now actively expecting doom and gloom. 

I will let you know.

    Now step away from the pee-sticks! Good luck for the scan, let us know x

  2. I’m thrilled that you’re a dickhead! Thalia is awesome. Sending you good thoughts for later today.

  3. I was hoping Science would prove valiant!

    Will be glued to here after 4pm. Hopeful that Turbo is still merrily turboising away.

  4. Thalia deserves a medal as ever! Fingers crossed for this pm. And just chuck the cheapie pee sticks away. Go on, you know you can do it.

  5. I seconded Thalia in the previous post, I will third her again today if it helps keep the bear of very little brain under some, no matter how tiny, measure of control.

    Holding my breath right along with you. xx

  6. Roll on 4 o’clock!!!

  7. Oh me nerves is gone.

    But okay, this is hopeful and we like hopeful. Fingers crossed for you, in perpetuum, always, and forever.
    xx

  8. More phew-ing! Now please leave the bloody pee sticks alone! Will remain in the everything crossed position for the rest of the day here, which should see you through 4pm your time 😉

  9. You mean people don’t just ignore your obsession with peeing on stuff and wait for scans and betas? Guess I’ve spent too much time in the lab – why use a color test when a quantitative one is available?

    Hope this scan is just as lovely as the last one and Turbo is just where he/she should be…

  10. Roll on 4pm, for you, and roll on the update post for us!!!

    Everything is crossed xxx

  11. No, nobody was annoyed with you–people were just very sorry you were suffering so. Fingers crossed as usual for the appointment this afternoon.
    To provide a distraction, I will tell you that I am in your debt for mentioning Terry Pratchett. I thought if Ann Wifey (I think of you as Ann Wifey, but never Hairy Ann) likes Terry Pratchett, I will try him. And now, I have read 10 Pratchett novels in 3 months. They are not as easy to come by on my side of the ocean, but my library system has 7 more for me to request from various branches. I am very grateful to you, but I would worry for you even if it were not for this debt. Best wishes from your Devoted Reader.

  12. Ha! Science triumphs!

    I am so glad for you, sweetie. Is it 4pm there yet? Hmm, let me get out my royal wedding time change calculator…

  13. Oh, phew. Thalia is pure brilliance. And since it’s now 10 here in California land, you’re probably having the scan RIGHT THIS SECOND, and I’m praying it is a beautiful one.

  14. I shan’t ask if you piddled in cups and *saved* it, because I don’t want to know. 🙂 Rather, hurrah! I hope your scan went well.

  15. I told you, peesticks are bastards who want to MESS WITH YOUR HEAD.

    Hurrah for clever people wot know about science.

    Anyway, I am feeling relieved along with you, and am know clicking ‘refresh’ on your blog obsessively.

  16. That was a fright you gave us. Now leave it to the professionals. Hope the scan went well.

  17. Yay for Tahlia!

  18. I am very glad the lightening was due to Hook Effect! Thinking sticky thoughts for you 🙂

  19. Oy! I said that too!
