Yeah, you guessed it. Negative. But it's ok! I'm ok. It'll be ok.

I should probably clarify something here, which I've forgotten to mention. Most IVF clinics apparently book people in for beta testing, to check hCG levels and confirm a negative/positive pregnancy from the cycle. Mine does not. After our embryo transfer, we were handed a two-pack of pregnancy tests, and told to test on May 13th & May 15th.

That's that.

So, I'll consider us officially out based on what those two pregnancy tests say. I know I've considered myself 'out' for a while now, but I've felt that way for a really long time. Call it a gut instinct, or just a defence mechanism.

Hanging out for the weekend, just to relax - but also dreading Mothers Day. Can't we just hit fast forward?

Show me where the rock is to crawl under. Seriously the m day ads are EVERYWHERE.

My GP said that the HPT are as good as a blood test.....doesn't put the mind at rest though. Your GP might be able to get you a blood test for hcg levels....bulk billed...

I'm glad that you're taking it well. I'm so sorry that you got a BFN. I can't imagine how you must be feeling right now. Thinking about you today.

I am sorry that your cycle was not successful. It is a hard pill to swallow. It does get better with time. I was very angry for a month or so after our failed ivf cycle. We are strong ladies and all we can do is keep marching forward.

I know how hard it is when an IVF, which takes so much time, money and energy, fails. I'm glad you've been taking care of yourself, and you sound like you're in a really good place. (A much better place than I was in at the end of our last IVF.)

I hope things start moving in a more positive direction soon. Hang in there!
