The results are in...

No baby.
My husband and I talked all night last night, CONVINCED i was pregnant. He was really nervous at first. See, we met when my little girl was about twenty months, and the two of them are INLOVE! It's the best thing ever,and we always wanted another as soon as we got married. However, one day he decided to research PE and developed a horrible fear of me having another baby. Every day we go back and forth, should we try? So, last night we talked about the possibility of me being pregnant, as I was four days late and counting. By the end of our conversation, we were both totally psyched to find out for sure. so, this morning I woke up and we were both anxious to test, but AF greeted me instead. Totally unexpected - she came with no symptoms at all. So, I thought I should test anyway, and it said no baby. My husband and I were so disappointed! It's actually fantastic that this all happened, as I said before - divine intervention. We want a baby so bad, and soon because the noodle is getting so big! But its very scary, and we couldn't decide if this really was the right time. Now, because of the way this whole thing made us feel, we KNOW that we are ready. So, we can do it the right way now. I'm making an appointment with the peri and we are going to try for that baby with his go ahead. I'm VERY excited! Wish me luck!

We're all with you on the excitement and fear roller-coaster. It's so thrilling to make the decision to go ahead and do it, isn't it? I know it's disappointing you're not pregnant now, but it's prboably better to consult with the peri first, get a plan in place, and then dive in. That way your hubby can feel secure that everything is being watched over well.

Let us know how the peri goes. Good luck!

sorry about AF, but happy to see your decision has been made for you in a very exciting way. Glad to see you will go check out with a peri first, planning is always good when you have issues.

good luck and keep us updated!

So sorry to hear about your disappointment.
But what an interesting little "test" you went through to find out that you are, indeed, ready! [:D]

I also think it is great that you are going for a consult with a peri. I ended up talking to mine twice, since the first time I went, it was so much info to take in, it was a bit overwhelming. We went over everything very thoroughly, and he even made up a timeline for us regarding when I would start to take certain supplements, when "routine" tests would be done, etc. Although there is so much more that will obviously be decided as we go along, it really, really helped to boost our confidence enough to try again.

I am very excited about your decision.
Best of luck to you!

PS - by noodle, I mean Kenzie. Its her nickname. (: Noone who knows her calls her by her name, she's just the noodle. I didn't want anyone getting the wrong impression...(: She started out as Kenzie-doodle, and somehow became the noodle....I'm really a geek when it comes to nicknames, I give one to everyone...just a habit, i guess.

Wow, I was convinced you were PG, especially since you were on the pill and you AF was so late. Oh well, at least you and DH got a good talk in and decided you really were ready to TTC. Good luck with the Peri, I'll be looking for future updates from you!
