Just To Fuck With Me *updated*


I’m spotting.

I’m extending my middle finger to The Universe right now.

I will be going to the doctor tomorrow morning to follow up on all of this. While the spotting has stopped for now, I have little faith that things will be well. It’s either self-preservation or just “knowing something isn’t right,” but either way, I’m resigned to losing this pregnancy.

And I literally do not know what I’m going to do.

    It’s nothing. I was puking in solidarity with you, and now you are spotting in solidarity with me. It’s nothing.

    Happens a lot. One woman in my office had a full period every two weeks through her pregnancy (I KNOW… ) and has a teenage son now to drive her nuts from it.

    I’ll have a good thought.

    no. Just no.

    Keeping you in my thoughts. I hope this turns out to be nothing more than just basic, non-harmful (though no less shit-your-pants scary) spotting.

    I’m sure it’s nothing.

    Hang in there!

  8. On June 16th, 2008 at 2:02 pm Ms. Moon Says:

    Yep. Might mean nothing at all. Still scary, I know.
    Lots of people thinking about you.

  9. On June 16th, 2008 at 2:20 pm Leslee Says:

    Nope. I’m waving my magical lucky chicken bones of sausagembro (uh… you know what I mean) fortitude and all shall be well. It will all be fucking WELL.

    Everything better be ok, damn it.

    Thinking about you and compulsively refreshing for updates.

    All appendages crossed.

  11. On June 16th, 2008 at 2:25 pm Karen Says:

    It is probably nothing. But if anyone deserves a break, it is you.

    I’m marching out on my lawn to make a really big middle-finger shaped bonfire. Fuck this noise.

  13. On June 16th, 2008 at 2:46 pm Marie Says:

    I will be thinking about you and praying for you today. Sending postive thoughts your way.

  14. On June 16th, 2008 at 2:57 pm Heather Says:

    No no no… It’s nothing. Totally normal. Just a little spotting, means nothing, no bad stuff, everything is fine.

    Universe, are you listening? It means NOTHING!

    I’ll be thinking of you.

  15. On June 16th, 2008 at 2:57 pm Jenn Says:

    I’m thinking of you! *hugs*
    I had spotting with my daughter and everything was okay, I know how scary it is. Are you going to your doctor?

  16. On June 16th, 2008 at 3:15 pm Sillycakes Says:

    Thinking of you, and hoping like hell for the best.

  17. On June 16th, 2008 at 3:17 pm Karen Says:

    Try to think positive thoughts. I really think that helps.

  18. On June 16th, 2008 at 3:47 pm Frozen Star Says:

    Crossing my fingers for you!

  19. On June 16th, 2008 at 4:00 pm kbreints Says:

    It could be nothing. Very normal. Just stay positive. If you can.

    Sending you love and good thoughts –

  21. On June 16th, 2008 at 4:02 pm kim Says:

    XOXO, you are in my thoughts.

  22. On June 16th, 2008 at 4:14 pm DD Says:

    Oh, hon. I was wondering what your Tweet meant…I’ll hold your hand virtually until you have more news. I know that fear all too well.

  23. On June 16th, 2008 at 4:24 pm PiquantMolly Says:

    I’m still here, sweetie.

  24. On June 16th, 2008 at 4:26 pm birdpress Says:

    I’m so sorry. I will still send positive thoughts your way in hopes that this is all a fluke.

    This just happened to my sister too. We are waiting to see what will happen with her. ๐Ÿ™

  25. On June 16th, 2008 at 4:34 pm Heather Says:

    Well, I am refusing to believe anything besides everything is fine. And I’ll be checking back obsessively. Hugs to you, Becky, because it’s shit to be worried in the first place.

  26. On June 16th, 2008 at 4:45 pm heather Says:

    I will lend you my personal philosophy, the one I use when it comes to my in-laws – expect the worst, and hope for the best. That way, you’ll be pleasantly surprised when things go your way, and if they don’t, you already knew it.

    Things are gonna go your way. You’ve been through this enough. Your quota is full.

  27. On June 16th, 2008 at 4:57 pm Kristine Says:

    I am thinking of you.

    Knowing spotting is sometimes nothing. Hoping it’s nothing. NOTHING DAMMIT. Do you hear me, universe? NOTHING.

  28. On June 16th, 2008 at 5:22 pm mandy Says:

    Aunt Becky,

    I am hoping all good things for you-please post a follow-up ASAP.

  29. On June 16th, 2008 at 5:24 pm Calliope Says:

    well fuck. I am also voting (because your uterus is a democracy, RIGHT?!!!) that it is nothing exciting. Just a little whatever left over from some crazy embryo party/rager that went down on the weekend.


    thinking of you

  30. On June 16th, 2008 at 5:31 pm andria Says:

    I am praying it’s nothing.

    I bled a puddle on the floor in front of my second grade students and still went on to give birth to Jacob.

    Still don’t know what caused it, and I’m hoping you’re having some sort of flukey crazy shit too.

  31. On June 16th, 2008 at 5:38 pm A Soldier's Girl Says:

    So sorry you are going thru this rollercoaster!

    I pray it is just a fluke & your little bean is doing just fine! ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. On June 16th, 2008 at 5:40 pm Ames Says:

    Oh Becky… hoping that the spotting is nothing. PLEASE update me when you can…until then I’ll continue to pray for you. *hugs*

  33. On June 16th, 2008 at 6:19 pm STE Says:

    Maintaining crossed appendages, continuing to hope for something good.

    Whatever happens, Becky, we’re here with you.

  34. On June 16th, 2008 at 6:21 pm Kristen Says:

    praying for you darling. and crossing my fingers really hard.

  35. On June 16th, 2008 at 6:28 pm Lola Says:

    It’s nothing, nothing, nothing. It has to be! I’m sending my really positive Sassy vibes your way that I save for big occassions such as this. The universe doesn’t dare fuck with them.

  36. On June 16th, 2008 at 7:00 pm CLC Says:

    I am praying that you are imagining this. Please be wrong.

  37. On June 16th, 2008 at 7:28 pm Katy Says:

    Oh man. Many women have spotted and gone on to have perfectly healthy and happy babies. So I will keep hoping that this is the case for you and will expect an update ASAP. Until then………keep resting. Hang in there Becky. Try not to stress, but I know it’s hard. Ugh. I’ll be thinking of you.

  38. On June 16th, 2008 at 7:45 pm Sara Says:

    Sonofabitch. I’m gonna go with it’s nothing too. I’m not pregnant, so I’m sure you still are!

  39. On June 16th, 2008 at 8:09 pm DC Says:

    Shit. I really really hope everything is OK. I’m thinking about you and sending lots of hugs your way.

  40. On June 16th, 2008 at 8:10 pm Mumma Boo Says:

    It’s nothing. Nothing! Sending big hugs and positive thoughts your way.

    Aw fuck!

  42. On June 16th, 2008 at 8:23 pm c. Says:

    Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. FUCK. Holding out hope, Becky, that this is just the universe playing a stupid, awful joke. Fucker.

  43. On June 16th, 2008 at 8:27 pm Susan@stopcallingmethat Says:

    I have to agree with c. Fuck, fuck, fuck, FUCK. I’m thinking/hoping this is a fluke and, like everyone else, have everything crossed and can’t wait for an update. Wishing you the best…

  44. On June 16th, 2008 at 8:34 pm chris Says:

    *sigh*…Usually I’m don’t say much with times such as this one. I would however hang out with you and just chat. Being that this is not possible, I’ll just hope for the best.

  45. On June 16th, 2008 at 9:43 pm AlmostMrsJoyner Says:

    That is complete fuckery. Loving & thinking of you.
