First, I'd like to say that I promised myself a long time ago, that once I got that BFP, I'd never ever complain about being pg. So, you really shouldn't hear too much complaining ever on this end. That's my gift to the world for letting me cross over :)
So, we have a huge function today. My girlfriend got married in June and Mr. Later Than Most and I were both in the wedding. The wedding was in Florida, so today she is having an all day BBQ in celebration. Huge, huge gathering, with all of our friends. So, the game of not drinking continues. I did blow off the girls' night last weekend. I just couldn't do it. Well today, Mr. Later Than Most and I will be playing the game of hide the drink. Actually, I think I'm going to pretend to be drinking beer, and then Mr. Later Than Most and I can switch cans. It sounds good now, we'll see how it goes. At my age, our friends are very perceptive of the drinking thing. I'm totally guilty of it too. I have a friend who I will keep an eye on all day long. So, this is the thing we do. Right now, there will be 4 pregnant girls there who are all "out of the closet." This is just the age that we are all at. Well, actually I'm older than all of them! But I'm not like 40 or anything, 32!
Other than that, I had another good night of no IF dreams. Actually, I'm having a hard time sleeping on my side because of the bloating. I have to sleep with a pillow wedged between me and the bed to take the pressure off. Hey, I'm not complaining, I'll sleep in a stack of hay if I have to :)
Finally, I'm doing well with waiting for the second beta. I don't think about it too often. I know there are a lot of people thinking about that number and praying for a good one, so I have to believe that it will be great. So, let's keep those thoughts and prayers (or as we say on TheBump, T&Ps) coming!!!! I know they help!
