My Reproductive Nightmare, Pregnant


Holy Freakin’ Hell in a Hand Basket. That bitch made me wait FOUR FREAKIN’ HOURS.

I’m pregnant and my beta is 1221 AND she used the words “which is exactly what we would expect it to be this far along.” I’m never what they expect. Never. And you know what? She doesn’t even want me to take another one! And she said I’m cute and smart and funny too. And she’s soooo sorry she made me wait all day for good news.

HOWEVER – my progesterone was only 26.5, and my doctor would LIKE it to be at 30, so they are prescribing me a supplement. Also? They would like me to call back in the morning and schedule an ultrasound for next week.

And I still swear to all that is fertile and holy that I’m still feeling cramps. What is UP with that?

Thank you GOD for Myllissann and Ben who kept me occupied all day with copius amounts of emails. Just for that? If this baby makes it full term? I’m naming it Silly Old Myllissann. You guys Rock.

    Does that mean you’re ready to put down the rifle?

    Or at least turn the safety back on? (please?)

  2. Yay for you! Yay for you!!!
    I was on pins and needles today, checking your site like every 15 minutes after 2….
    Yay for you!

  3. Congratulations!!! My better half was crampy and had ALL the symptoms of PMS during her first couple weeks of pregnancy. Then came the nausea and all that good stuff.

  4. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-HOOOO!! I’m praying nausea and a bloated feeling on ya : ) No thanks necessary, dahling : )

  5. I’ve been checking all day for news! She didn’t only make you wait, she made the internet wait. I shall add you to my (currently very long) list of friends who are pregnant.


    And I’m telling you, the cramps mean things are Happening. Normal pregnancy things. I was crampy and twingy for weeks everything ending up sticking just fine.

  7. I am so excited for you! I also have been checking a lot, and THANK YOU for letting us know!!!

    HUGE gentle hugs. πŸ™‚

    BIG ((((HUG)))))

    Hugs to you!

  14. Wooohoooo That is so awesome!! 1 for Zoot!!… I am gonna continue sending all my positive energy your way!!… and as much strength that I can share. Hang in there sweety and try and stay positive!… I am hoping for the best!

  16. sweet jebus, that is awesome. crossing fingers… and whatever other parts are relevant. as we say here in new england, *wicked* cool.


    I am doing a funky chicken dance on your behalf!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. I love what others have posted – ya know the phrase “the little bugger”. Makes me laugh at the thought of a little embryo or spec or whatever inside you hanging on with clamped fists and that being the cramping you are feeling. Whatever it is, if the cramps are a sign of a good thing, may you keep having them!

    Praying all the prayers of pixie prayers and everything else for you.

    Now where is your Survivor update?


    I knew holding my thumbs AND crossing my fingers would work!

    See – good things come in 3s. And you’re the 3rd blogger that I read who’s been “trying” for a while to finally become pregnant!!


  20. Wait! What does that mean? What was your beta before? What does he want an ultrasound of the beta? Isn’t your beta too small to see?


  21. yeah, well, maybe I checked once or twice as well. Woo woo Congratulations…um…can I ask a favor…could someone please help me uncross all my parts?

  22. CONGRATS!!! Was so happy to read your post. As fpr cramps I had them with my last pregnancy, thought for sure I was gonna start (at the time we were not trying to get pg) So the pregnancy part was not even on my mind, heck I even had a little spotting, but found out that was due to just coming off birth control…….Anyway I went to the store, looked at the PG tests, decided to take one for the heck of it since I just knew I WASN’t pregnant, well haha fooled me! I was pg with our 4th, lol Anyway I am keeping my fingers crossefd for ya!!

  23. Whoo hoo! I kept checking back for news. Glad to hear things are looking good. I had some cramps early on, mainly around when I should have started. Take care of yourself and make sure everyone is pampering you!!

  24. Congratulations Zoot! The nurse kept us in suspense all day. I even checked back on your site once I got home (when I normally don’t surf) just to see if you had updated! 1,221 sounds like an awesome number. You deserve it!

  26. Yip-yip-yippeeeee! So very happy for the most fabu of all bloggers, our Zoot and her uterus! I will conduct all manner of wiccan rituals for a healthy pregnancy. Small animals may be sacrificed (not to worry, I’m thinking ants) and public nudity may be on the agenda. That’s how much I love the Zoot.

    Seriously, dollin, I send my very best your way, clothed or otherwise.


  27. Congrats!!! I’m keeping you in my thoughts constantly and hoping that everything goes well.
    Maybe the phantom cramps you’re feeling is just the fact that you’ve been nervous/anxious? Just don’t do anything strenuous and take lots of little breaks at work for some YOU time. If they have a problem, tell us and we’ll take care of it. πŸ˜‰

  28. OMG! OMG! It’s happening! And I know you don’t want to be jinxed or anything but ohmygod! I can’t contain myself! I’m so excited for all you Zoots!!!!

    I’ve had cramps this whole time. So, like everyone said – don’t get yourself too upset about them. Even though you will πŸ˜‰

    Damn it! The whole internet is pregnant! Why must we all live so far apart from each other? We could all have playdates and our kids could be buddies? Damn it! That’s it. I’m writing the whole damn internet and we’re all moving closer together! So, get your bags packed! πŸ˜‰

  29. CONGRATULATIONS! You and my best friend are pregnant, that is great news! Looking forward to your pregnant posts. They should be amazing.

  30. Congrats. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. As an aside, when I got pregnant I had the worst cramps of my life — I thought for sure my period would come shooting out in rivers at any moment but it didn’t.

  31. Great balls o’ fire! Woot Zoot!

    It was 22 years ago that I was last pregnant, but I definately remember having cramps for quite a while.

    I”m sending baby vibes your way.


  32. This is what I get for actually having work to do at work – I miss the big Zoot news. Congrats to you, Mr. Zoot and LilZoot. Guess he’s going to have to be renamed MediumZoot (or something) now.

  33. ooooooooooooooo!


    I hope the cramps go away and the progesterone supplement works out for you.

    I was just thinking on my drive into work today, “I wonder if Zoot found out if she is pregnant or not.” (cause I haven’t checked your blog for the last few days)

    How exciting!

    Now remember, you are eating for 2, so be sure to help yourself to an extra Krispy Kreme…

    (as long as you drink a glass of milk while you are at it, it probably isn’t all that bad, right?)

  34. I’m doing a happy dance just for you right now, as is Speck, who is delighted that she is no longer the only baby I’m obsessing over. Yaay for you and your boys and your future!
