3 Negatives don't Equal a Positive

The last two times I have started infertility testing, I found out somewhere in the middle of it all that I was pregnant. I made an appointment two months ago for the earliest available annual exam and to talk to my doctor (again) about being very aggressive with testing and treatment. My appointment is this next week, and I have all sorts of emotions. However, something happened a few weeks ago that really added to my anxiety, my hurt, my craziness. I have been pretty regular with my period for years. However, this last month was different. Well the date came and I was armed with all of the arsenal one would need to get through the week. And she didn't come. I thought, I have been under a lot of stress, it is possible that it will just be late. Five days came and went and still, nothing. So, I did what anyone would do and bought a test. Negative. Still, cramping and continuing to be late, nothing. I was 11 days late...3 negative tests.

On the upside, I guess there is the appointment later in the week.


  1. I'm reading a book called "Taking control of your fertility." I'd strongly recommend it and would recommend tracking the things in it so that you will know if you are late because you are probably pregnant or because you had a delayed preovlatory phase. Anyway . . . I've been there with the 3 tests and all and I hope you know how special you are to me. Call me some evening and we can talk.

  2. Oh Brandy I hope everything works out! You are an amazing girl and I love you so much! Just know im always here for you!

  3. Poor girl! Hope things go well! I'm praying for you!
