I Tested — The Bump
Secondary IF

I Tested

It looks pretty negative.  I also have several signs that AF will be coming today.  I am pretty confident that I am out for this month, but I guess it is not over until AF arrives.  I thought I would be more upset by this, but I am really not that upset.  I think that researching adoption and coming to terms with it as a real option has helped me relax a little bit.  I feel like even if we can't have a baby ourselves, we can still get our baby #2.  We will have to see DH's next SA results and that will help us decide how many more months we will try.

As a side note, we will not be doing a medicated cycle this time, but if I get pregnant this month (meaning if I get AF today and get pregnant on this new cycle) my due date will be exactly the same as DD.  The weird thing about that is that DH proposed to me on April 1, 2004, DD was born April 1, 2008 (due date was March 30), and if I get pregnant this month there is the possibility that the new baby would be born April 1, 2012.  Those are all 4 years apart on April Fool's Day, all on leap years.  So, if I did have a baby on April 1, 2012, I would be thoroughly freaked out that my life is some kind of joke or prank!

    I'm sorry it was negative, but I'm so happy for you that you feel some peace about it.  I'm also happy for you that you're able to consider adoption!  That's wonderful!  The April 1st thing is pretty cute too... Here's to your number 2, no matter how s/he makes it to your family!

  • I am so sorry it was negative.  Adoption is such a wondrful thing.  My brother and his wife get to go in about 5 weeks to pick up the little girl they adopted from India... we are all so excited!  I also know that break cycles have great turn outs so I will keep my fingers crossed for you!

  • I'm sorry :(  And it has to be a good sign for next month.  And I think April 1st is a wonderful time for birthdays/ special days.  The first day of the first full month of spring.  I wish you lots of luck for next month!
