Wendy and her husband have been married for 19 years. Both of them grew up with parents who struggled financially, so they made a conscious choice to go to school and put their careers first. Their plan was to become extremely successful and financially stable before they had children. They have done everything in their power to NOT have children. Now, Wendy and her husband live in affluent neighborhood, have the careers, have all the toys, but feel there's something missing -- a baby.
Trying to conceive can be the most joyful and sometimes heartbreaking experience a woman will ever go through. When we were young, we thought it was easy: have sex ... get pregnant.
Negative, Negative, and NEGATIVE! I'm speechless and all out of tears today. Don't know what to say.
We did everything we were supposed to do up to this point, and still nothing. I have tried to make it a fun process for myself and Kenny, but this is no fun.
Pregnancy test is negative. I will try again tomorrow. My period hasn't arrived yet, so there is still hope.
Let's see how this plays out. We'll continue our quest again when Kenny gets home from work, since my LH surge is still here.
Negative AGAIN. Whatever. I am so done with all of this!!! How many more times am I going to preach, "There is always tomorrow"?
The countdown is on for the early pregnancy test at the end of the week. Ticktock, ticktock....
And the waiting game begins again. The O tests are dreaded but necessary. No, I am not ovulating today and probably won't be tomorrow either.
I was feeling really good today. It's the beginning of a new week & a new month!
Back to the grind and excited about month two!
No, I am not ovulating today and probably won't be tomorrow either.
Back to the grind today. Thinking of how I will fair tomorrow with the beginning of this series of O tests.
My period is due today. Hasn't arrived yet, but did another pregnancy test and it was negative.
I have been trying not to let the pursuit of conceiving consume me.
Memorial Day has a very special meaning to me. Memorial Day is the day to remember all of our fallen heroes.
Today was the hardest day for me since I started this project. Just when I thought I didn't have any more tears for disappointment, the waterworks came on.
My period is due tomorrow. Dreading it because if it does come, that means no pregnancy.
We took the First Response early pregnancy test and it was -- drum roll, please -- negative!
