And then my phone rang

I realized that my phone had been on "vibrate" for the last five days, so I turned the ringer back on. As soon as I put it back in my purse, it rang.

It was the genetic counselor, not my doctor. I took that as a good sign. She sounded chipper, not serious. I took that as another good sign.

She said, "I have good news for you."

And then I cried, and I laughed, and I thanked her as though she, personally and all by herself, had caused this good news to come into being.

I can't stop crying. The relief is overwhelming me.

Yay! So happy the news is good. That phone thing is a little freaky. Are you psychic and could feel the genetic counselor think about calling you? I wonder . . .

OMG- I am so happy for you. I had a similar experience when I was PG with the Cutie Pie, although not quite as stressful as yours was. When I called to check on results, I was at a meeting and burst out crying with relief in the lobby of the hotel. Luckily the only one who saw me was a friend from work.

Agree with Swannie and hope the rest of the pregnancy is uneventful AND enjoyable.
