I Should B in shock

Yesterday was a hard day at work. We had a very aggressive patient that was breaking things and hurting themselves. For times like these we as a team do a "take down". This is where we use training to prevent the individual from harming themselves or others. It can get quite physical. Well anyways I was one of the trained people on duty that assisted. After the individual was calm we were able to let them up and rest in an observation room. Afterwards I assessed myself for any injuries. My back was sore, my knee was bruised, and I had scrapes on my elbow accompanied with another bruise. I was okay but hurting. This is not my first take down so don't be concerned. I work in mental health and yes at times it can be scary. Yesterday was as scared as I'd ever been. But again I am okay and so is everyone else. It was a success. This is just Mental Health sometimes. 

When I got home I took a hot bath for my aches and pains. My body was hurting so much I wanted to take a strong pain pill that I have. Ever since we began TTC it became a habit to take a cheapy pregnancy test to make sure I'm not expecting. My husband always complained I was wasting money but it only cost like .25 and I only reach for pain pills when I am in A LOT of pain (every 6 months or so). So, I POAS and walked away cleaning up a bit and forgot about it. It was until I went to use the bathroom that I saw it. 

It was freaking positive!!!

Wait what?!? So I whipped out the trusty FRER. 


We are on a break! This is a complete and utter SHOCK!

We are cautiously optimistic and beta will be Monday morning. 

The biggest worry now is health insurance. Mine doesn't kick in till June 1st. I will not wait that long with my history. So I will be scouring the internet to see what my short term options are. 

Right now I'm pregnant and in shock!

Needless to say I never took the pain pill and will not be participating in any more take downs for the foreseeable future. 

How did countless rounds of Clomid not work and being on a break did? Why now? Why am I the lucky one and not others? 

I am not upset but happy and I want everyone to feel this happiness. 

I hope this our take home baby. 

Bloggie World miracles DO happen! 


  1. Congratulations!!! I think because it's a matter of prenatal care that the state may be able to pick up your cost of care until your own insurance kicks in. So exciting! I knew by the title that you were pregnant. Congrats again!!

  2. Oh what awesome news! Congrats!! Miracles do happen. Will be wishing you well.

  3. Wow...that's amazing! I can't wait to hear what your beta'll be great ☺

  4. Congratulations! That's so exciting for you guys. Hoping you get your insurance figured out quickly.

  5. That is such a freaking dark FRER line too! Amazing what happens when you least expect it!
