I tested this morning and it was negative. But I am okay with that. We had not planned on one right now. I am still having some symptoms, but who knows. It is just cd 28 and my cycles are anywhere from 28-40 days. At least I now know that I do want another baby some day. I really didn't know if I did, but I kind of got excited about the thought of having another one. So we will definitely start trying later this year.

Hi Amanda - Glad to hear that you want another one and will try later this year. We'll be here for you and will have the good thoughts for you until then, at which time we'll continue that thoughts and send "baby dust" when need arises. [:)]

Hugs,
Norlisa

Amanda,

I hope that maybe it was just too early to test... If not though, there will be plenty of "baby dust" waiting here when you're ready.

Amanda,
Sorry it wasn't a ++. And, yes, it still could turn +. If not, lots of good wishes coming your way for when it is the "right time".

Amanda,
Sounds like you are feeling better about having another baby. That's great! Hey, it's still pretty early in your cycle, so you just don't know... I had a girlfriend who swore she was pregnant, took a test, came back negative, but then had a blood test done and it was positive. So you never know... Keep us update should things change!!
