While the news that I don't have a tumor is welcome, it feels like I am going backwards in my quest to conceive a baby.
One of my biggest worries has been why I am not getting pregnant. Now I have something else to consume my brain space.
Asking someone if she's pregnant could do more than just hurt her feelings. Trust me.
When test results from my doctor came back saying that I have low thyroid levels, I thought crap! Why didn't I pay attention to that thyroid episode on Oprah?!
I'm on Day 49 of my cycle. Still no period. I took a pregnancy test and shot an e-mail to my reproductive endocrinologist: "WHAT'S NEXT?!" As I waited for her response, I thought about my life -- what was I doing differently? The only thing I could come up with was that I had quit artificial sweeteners last June, replacing them with ... wait, could this be true?
I've been this way for over a year now. In this time, I've seen more negative tests than you can shake a pregnancy stick at.
