Nips: WTF uterus? I’ve been waiting 31 years to fulfill my destiny and FINALLY I start getting the signals I’ve been waiting for and now you go and start spotting like it’s nothing?
Uterus: Oh, oops, my bad, not pregnant, was just testing you, ha ha! Good job on the piercing needle sensation though.
Brain: Ok you two, break it up. Let’s just take a few moments to review. Uterus, you started sending signals and nips, you responded just like you should. Good job team! Sorry we didn’t win it this time, but hey, next round is coming up and we need to be on our game, ok? Now, hit the showers, drinks are on me.
Post-Script by Strawberry’s Brain and Taste Buds: Dude, homemade buttercream frosting is an awesome comfort food.
Dang. Sorry. The buttercream sounds good, though.
Rats. Sorry to hear this. Hopefully the second time will be the charm? That’s what happened to us when we first tried. Stay positive! -Monica
I’m being overly optimistic here, but you might want to test anyway. Nipple needles without pregnancy are really random, spotting’s not uncommon in the first trimester, and I’ve heard some women get full periods in the first month of pregnancy. ETF’s aren’t that expensive, and it can’t hurt to check.
PS. I’m with Allison on the buttercream!
Mel, we tested (hence the ‘BFN’ = Big Fat Negative) in the title, although I hate that term. I don’t know what to think, because even though Nutella is bleeding and we tested negative, her temp is still up. Strange, but my guess is her body is just inexperienced with this whole process. But I CANNOT let myself still have hope. That doesn’t work for me. Trying to accept and move on to try #2.
Sorry guys. It really really sucks. Even when you are “expecting” it. Even when you are only going through it for the first time. It still sucks.
I agree Strawberry–a negative test and spotting means its over, even if her temp is still high. I always need to mentally start moving on as soon as I get a neg. test, even if full-on flow is still days away.
It so, so sucks.
I’m thinking of you.
Oh that sucks! I’m sorry you’re out. Lots of hugs to you.
Oh! I didn’t know what a BFN was. I’m so embarrassed! Sorry 😦
You absolutely have the best perspective on it. Hugs and good luck ❤
Mel, Don’t be embarassed…I still don’t know what all the TTC (Trying To Conceive) lingo on the internet is.
We appreciate your support and optimism, along with everyone else’s kind words.
Sorry 😦 Have lots of drinks and buttercream frosting!
i’m happy you guys are getting back in the saddle. never give up hope!
pass the drinks over here too…bummer.
next time team…next time
oh i’m sorry you guys. i’ve had those months of trying too and it really sucks. 😦
