Another One Bites the Dust


Once again, I am officially and unequivocally not pregnant. I had a blood test this morning (four days early because I've been spotting for several days). Big Fat Negative.

I guess the silver lining in this situation is that I can now consume my body's weight in alcohol over the holiday weekend.

Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes and tips to get rid of my nausea. Aren't I a lucky, lucky girl? Pregnancy symptoms for two weeks with no actual pregnancy is soooo much fun. A combination of ginger and salty pretzels seemed to do the trick to help calm my stomach. All the tips were much appreciated and will surely come in handy in the future.

I promise to catch up on my commenting over the holiday weekend. I've been missing my blogging buddies and can't wait to read how everyone's doing. :)

I'm so sorry DC I know how much it truly sucks.

brotayjax said...

I've been a bit of a blog stalker waiting for your posting as I have felt a connection to you since I began reading your blog. I know this is not what you were hoping for, and quite frankly...it stinks.

I'm not one for cliches at a time like this, so instead I'd rather say, "There are no words. Only shoulders and hugs." --even if the shoulder and/or hugs are virtual (as they are in this case) I offer mine to you. It sounds like many others do as well from reading the comments that have been left.

Draw strength from those sending it your way...

All of the symptoms and no pregnancy. It is almost like the universe not only doesn't want us to be pregnant but wants to rub our faces in it too.

Clever Trevor said...

Just catching up with your blog and I'm real sorry to read your 'news'.
I had the whole pregnancy symptoms after my failed attempt too - not pleasant especially with the bloating etc. so people just put two and two together, coming up with five, and start congratulating you when you're hanging over the toilet.
Thinking of you Kx

Sorry: Feeling or expressing regret or sorrow or a sense of loss over something done or undone

Yup, I think that's the word...

baby~amore' said...

I am sorry I hope one day soon your will find your resolution to this crappy news ... my heart breaks for you

I knew it so well some days (heck sometimes every day it is just so hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel right.

I guess you know a mug of something strong is no consolation but it hope it resolves and eases something in you.
