    Thanks Alzora... but unfortunately, I was/am just sick.

    My sister kept suggesting things like pneumonia, etc. and I was feeling so crappy last night. The Masochist in me won, and I took a test this morning.

    NEGATIVE

    Ugh. It's so hard... and at the same time, I had a feeling that it wasn't happening. So... a little depressed, a little sick, probably PMS-ing... maybe I should go into hiding for a few days?

    Anyone know how to deal with infertility and children? My 4-yr old son is almost to the point of tears because he wants a baby so badly. And he can't understand why everyone else gets a baby and he doesn't. I keep telling him that we're trying... but he sees it happening for his little daycare friends so easily. The guilt over this is almost unbearable.

    Thank you for the welcome ladies PND is horrible, as you don't feel like yourself anymore. When I'm not on medication, I am just a different person. I am not me. On medication, I'm fine. I hate being on medication though, and have tried to come off them, but I feel so terrible and I do not think it fair on my son for me to be ill like that, so I take them as I am better with him and better around him. I do hope to come off them in the future however. PND is something I would never have, our son was planned, I'm in a stable, loving relationship, I was physically healthy during the pregnancy, our baby was healthy, and I loved him so much from the moment I had the positive pregnancy test. But I still had PND. It's a very strange thing, that.
    Thank you for saying that I am brave, but I Have been very lucky. Our miscarriage was an early one, at 7 weeks. Quite natural, painless and no medical intervention was needed. It was upsetting, but it happened. We have close friends of ours who lost their son literally days before his due date. She still had to go through the birth, and then there was the funeral. It was heartbreaking. They truly are brave, for getting through that. I cannot begin to imagine what that is like.
    News update: took a pregnancy test today and it was a negative. So now awaiting Aunt F. Joy. Ah well. Roll on next month!
    How is everybody else doing? Xxx

    Aw man, Grecianern and Hala. I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment. @Grecianern, I can't offer any advice in dealing with infertility and children, as it's something I've never experienced. I have a hard time dealing with the wait MYSELF, and your son is only four so it has to be so frustrating for him, and for you. What if you sat down with him and talked about how this is a very special time for it to be JUST him and you. Plan special things with him--maybe day trips--that you wouldn't be able to do with a baby, and explain to him that you want to make some fun memories of just the two of you (well include your DH on the fun!) while you wait. Make it a fun phase for him. Call it The Waiting Game and plan goofy activities that he would like for every weekend until you get your positive. Do spontaneous fun things--wake him up in the middle of the night to go outside and play in the snow, or to watch a movie together in sleeping bags in the living room. Tell him that while you wait, you want to make memories that you couldn't do with a baby in the house.

    @Hala, your miscarriage may have been different than some other people's experiences, but it was still a major loss to you, and you have a right to grieve over that. Even though it happened early in the pregnancy, you still lost your child whom you had grown to love so much, so fast. You ARE brave to have gone through something like that, and I commend you for taking care of yourself for your son's sake. I understand the hesitations about being on medication for long periods of time, but in this case it sounds like it is really good for you and your family. Hang in there. These weeks will fly by for you and soon you can try again.

    @Poppy, I'm just about in my two-week wait. I'm a little irregular with ovulating, so we try to go for about five days straight each month around the time of ovulation. We will end it either today or tomorrow, and AF would come between January 21-24. I'm already dreading the two-week wait. It gets harder each month. Now we are approaching my baby sister's due date and my best friend's due date, so I'm getting more and more emotional and restless about having my own.

    Thank you for your lovely words Alzora.
    I hate the two week wait it drives me nuts! Especially when you think you are having symptoms, or what you think are symptoms, then you get a negative test and the symptoms must be in your head or pms. Oh the fun of womanhood. I thought I was having symptoms, similar to my previous pregnancies and all! Xxx
