Still Didn't Get My Period

Anh-Chi: It's the 1st of the month, and I still didn't get my period. What's odd is that my pregnancy test shows up as negative. I've been testing daily for the past week, and I've become nonchalant to avoid getting disappointed. I'll tell myself, "If the result is negative, then I won't be surprised, and if it's positive, of course I'll be more than happy." So either way I'll be okay.   

At this point, I'm letting fate take its course. I'm surrendering, not because I want to give up, but rather, I've come to terms with this whole situation. It's exhausting to continually feel self-defeated, and the last thing I want to do is stress out and jeopardize my chances of getting pregnant (and my general health, at the least).
I've talked to a lot of moms, and many of them agree that it normally takes 1 year to conceive.  So although these past 6 months have felt like eternity, I'm half way there!  Of course I'd love to get pregnant soon, but I'll just keep trying optimistically.    My husband and I are going on a vacation this summer, so I hope we can both be relaxed enough to make this happen!!!
