Today is NOT the Day

I mentioned I was in my two-week-wait after TTC (trying to conceive) this cycle.

As much as I would love for this to be the day I announced a long-awaited pregnancy... alas, it is not. As if periods don't suck enough! Add to it the fact that it's the ultimate sign that you didn't get pregnant and it's just a big Mother Nature joke. According to my basal body temperature chart, I ovulated and timed everything just fine. Maybe. It's kinda hard to tell.

I'm disappointed. It's hard to go through the ups and downs of thinking and hoping and praying and wishing you may be pregnant and then having your body give you a big fat "NOPE!" in response. But, I've learned over time to somehow shake it off and move on... and try again. It hurts, but I try not to think about it too long or it'll just drive me crazy. When it's something like this that you cannot control, over-analyzing things and getting depressed just does NOT help the process.

I have to look on the bright side! If I had gotten pregnant this cycle, my due date would have been July 25th, 2010. That's a horrible time to be due. It's hot and sticky and gross outside. I wouldn't enjoy waddling around in weather like that. Eek!

Plus, there are so many women out there who have been through many more years of disappointment than I have... and many who have faced much worse fertility situations than my own. So, I would feel guilty if I got ridiculously upset about my current bump in the road.

AND, I have one more cycle before I go back to the fertility specialist to discuss the future of my treatments... so I totally have one more chance this year to get pregnant.


  1. good luck! I have a friend with this similar problem she doesn't ovulate an egg each month. After only a few months on the medication she got pregnant and just had a baby this september. Hope this helps!

  2. Dang, I had my fingers crossed! You are right to shake off the disappointment and move on, though. We wish you the best:)
