Every time I get a negative, I have a blah day. It doesn't help that you've "only" been trying for a month, it's still hard! Hang in there. I am praying it will happen for both of us.

I'd be surprised if you felt any different than blah or sad or down on a day like that. TTC is not easy and takes some patience and a BFN does not help at all!. I had my "blah day" a few days ago....Let's keep fingers crossed for all of us!
