Not To Put Too Fine A Point On It

My period introduced itself yesterday with some pretty strong cramps. Like all of my cycles I secretly thought I might still be pregnant right up until my period started.

I suppose a period is called a period because it happens periodically. We all know that it is also an ending, like the end of a sentence (period). As in, you are definitely NOT pregnant (period).

In all cycles an ending is also a beginning. I emailed my RE today to tell him my news so that we could start planning our next steps.

Hopefully this ending will be the beginning of something good.

I'm reminded of the lyric, every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. It's just so hard when it comes with the price of yet another crushing disappintment.

Well while I'm glad you have an answer...I'm disappointed that it wasn't the answer we were hoping for!

On to NEW BEGININGS!

Your title totally got They Might Be Giants in my head and now I am going to be humming Birdhouse in Your Soul all day long. Sorry AF showed :-(. Nothing can be easy. I just have to keep telling myself that when we do have kids finally, we are going to make the most amazing moms because we will appreciate every single second (even the rough ones) and we will never take on moment for granted. *HUGS* Good luck with the RE!

That sucks but I totally love your optimism. Embrace that and look toward the future. It is the beginning! Take care! I'm thinking about you today.

So sorry. At least your waiting is over for the news. I hope your RE has some good ideas for the next try. Do something nice just for you.

Does it help to point out that 'Everytime a door closes, somewhere a window opens'?... Meh, I'm not much for cliches either.

Good luck with next month!

There are "bleeders" who are pregnant.
Did you get your beta moved up?

I hope you get an answer soon!
