Optimist or Crazy Person?

Signs you're an optimist:

- You spend over $200 on a maternity wardrobe, when you're not yet pregnant, because you know that you'll get to use it and the next consignment sale isn't for another six months.

- You see a pair of Seven for All Mankind maternity jeans on eBay and you bid (and win!) them. Even though you're not going to find out if you're pregnant for another week.

- Even though you're spotting, you tell yourself its just that egg burrowing itself into your uterus.

- When you begin to feel cramps, you tell yourself it must be because you ate Indian food for dinner last night and something didn't agree with your system.

- Even though the spotting is getting heavier, you still take a pregnancy test.

Signs that you're not in completely denial:

- When the test comes back negative and five minutes later, your period officially starts, you have yourself a really good cry in your closet full of maternity clothes that still can't be worn.

Love,

Catwoman.

CRAP. I'm really sorry - it will happen soon. Just keep doing that positive vibe shopping - it will happen.

My hubby and I are trying to so I know how you feel, every month when Aunt Flow comes I cry. The first time I got pregnant I wasn't even expecting it. Which brings me to my point. (I know it took a while)
I was watching one of those TV trash shows last night and Hailie Berry was saying that she "did it" for 5 days before and 5 days after, it still took a couple of months but she did finally get pregnant.

Kellie said...

I can't imagine how you feel and I'm so sorry. Wish I could wave a hocus pocus wand and tra-la....you'd be pregnant.

Sorry, girly :(

Haphazardkat said...

So been where you're at right now.
I feel your pain :(

*sending blog hugs*

mumof4 said...

I have been there too ---more than once....from buying the clothes before time....(also on ebay!) to doing endless tests just in case....in the bathroom at Target. I so feel for you. But stay the optimist. The sooner the period has been and gone you can try again.....
Big hug.

June's a shitty birthstone anyways. You didn't want a pearl to screw with that gorgeous sapphire you worked so hard (unconscious tho you were) to get. Flo, you bitch, why don't you just do everybody a favor and take a hike? And, Lord I can't wait to hear how that darling Hub of yours decides to inseminate you next month!

Ms. Porter said...

I'm really so sad to hear that. Bummer.

All I can say is, drink lots of wine, eat lots of chocolate, have a good cry, and try (lots) again.

jempress said...

this you test last night? too bad our playdate wasn't today - i would have cried right alongside you.

Loukia said...

Sigh, sorry! It can be so disappointing. Better luck next cycle... have fun trying, again. And yay for all the mat clothes you've already bought, why not? You know you'll get to wear them soon enough! Seven mat jeans... lucky bum!

Myanderings said...

I am so sorry. Wish I'd timed this better, but there's a little something for you over at my blog. So sorry.

M said...

Oh honey this sucks ass.

I'm sorry. Which means shit when you feel this crappy but I still mean it.

I tried so hard for Liam it was unbelievable and every. fucking. month. sucked. ass.

Here's hoping you have no more sucky months.

xoxoxoxo

AndreAnna said...

Goddamn it, I really feel terrible for you!

I don't know any words to comfort but I hope you get your baby soon; I truly do.

Blue Momma said...

I'm so sorry! I so know how it feels. I've got another 14 days before my chance to be disappointed once again.'

But here's hoping for me this month and you next month. I'm working at it best I can - I'm sitting here with my girly stuff elevated waiting twenty minutes before I arise right now!

Who needs a cigarette afterwards? Gimme my laptop!

random_mommy said...

goddamnit.

Melissa said...

Sorry to hear it hon. :(

my minivan is faster than yours said...

What seems like forever now will probably be something you look back on later and realize was the typical amount of time it takes the average couple to succeed (nine months, I read).

People are always so quick to share their "we weren't even trying" stories and that's off balance because most people tried. And tried. And tried.

I'm looking forward to your next cycle already. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed this time!

alissa said...

I'm so sorry...

But, now you can have yourself a drink and keep those fingers crossed for next month (but legs open!)

Have you tried one of those ovulation kits/tests?

I'm a Mom!..? said...

I've cried in my clothes too, but it will happen, hang in there!

Sam said...

I'm so sorry. It is so hard to go through I know, we tried for ages to conceive our second child. It is so heartbraking month after month, but it will happen (((hugs))).

Rachel said...

Damnit Catwoman! It will happen. Soon. Just give it more time. I can't wait to see the post telling us that Aunt Flo will be staying home for a while.

hugs.
