Looks like this might be just another chemical... I tested with a 4 hour hold with no diluted urine and the tests (4 different types, 3 different brands) are pretty negative. Well, the strip I've been using still have a line but much more faint than before. Damn! And I really had my hopes up this time, which probably explains why this hit so hard. I really want another child, but at times like this I question if it's really meant for us to have another one.. I have my digital left, I didn't want to use that since all tests were negative. If by some chance "af" doesn't show, I'll probably use it. But that doesn't feel too likely.

Pandorica, I’m so sorry. I was rooting for you over here.
Miam and Southern, I’m glad things are going well (despite the sickness)!
ATM I think I’m 8dpo. According to fertility friend and ava, I seem to be ovulating 2-3 days after my peak OPK, which seems weird to me. But it’s not impossible, and with both of them giving me that data, I’m thinking it’s accurate. Which might explain why it’s taking so long. I have very little hope for this month due to timing, but I am trying to track how I’m feeling so I have a better idea of what is normal for me. Today I’m cranky AF and I had some pretty intense cramping this afternoon (actually thought AF could be starting even though not due until Sunday). Maybe this info will help next month?

Hberry- I'm sorry

Southernmama- sorry that stinks theybwont book you sooner its like you won't be able to see the little until almost your second trimester thats crazy!.
AFM- morning sickness hasn't let up its a catch 22 for sure. I know things are going well but damn can't wait til it subsides. Hopefully I should know the gender by the end of this month. Getting genetic testing done.
Fingers crossed for all you lovely ladies.

Miam: I know! It's ridiculous!!!! Everyone I talk to who is pregnant gets to go at like 6-9 weeks for their first appointment. It sucks the stupid military hospitals make you wait. But, I also don't pay a dime. That's socialist medical care for you lol. I get what you mean about knowing it means baby must be growing if we have the morning sickness but....I would really rather just worry than deal with this nausea again. I just hope mine doesn't last the entire pregnancy like last time!

Miam - I'm actually ok. I felt a bit down for a day or so. Talked to my husband about it. Then realized there's nothing I can do to change the outcome. The upside is that I can actually go through with my booked MRI this tuesday. I've wanted to do one for over 10 years but no doctor has listened to me until now. I'm going to talk with him about my borderline thyroid levels too and hopefully he'll be able to sort those out.
Southern - That must suck. Here in Sweden you only get to do an early ultrasound if you have a history of previous losses or something like that. Some "countys" offers what we call CUB (KUB), combined ultrasound and blood work, around 13 weeks for free for all women and some restrict it to women over 35. So some will have to wait to see the baby until the anatomical scan around 19-20 weeks. They get to hear the heartbeat way before that tough, but still. I would have loved to have done an early scan with my son. I were almost 14 weeks when we got our first scan (CUB).
