Cycle 6: Another Negative

So, in case it wasn't evident in my letter to the Applebees waitress, this cycle was a bust.

On the fourth, I thought I saw a second line, so I went outside where Keegan was washing his car and asked him. He looked at the test, looked at me and asked, "Is this real?!" He saw the line as well but didn't want to get excited until subsequent tests showed darker lines. Unfortunately, none of them did. I had a harder time with seeing the negative tests than I thought I would. I think that since I knew that the cycle after an HSG had increased chances, I had more hope.

When my temperature started to plummet on Friday the fifth, I knew this cycle was another no-go. I started spotting on Saturday and had a full blown flow on Sunday. I hate letting the emotions of another failed cycle get to me, but I'll admit I wasn't the greatest person to be around this weekend. I was in a funk that I just couldn't pull myself out of. Thankfully I'm feeling better now and am ready to tackle another cycle.

On Sunday when I added my temperature, Fertility Friend gave me the calendar below:

Um what? Five days of ovulation? Either Fertility Friend is confused because my ovulation days have moved from CD 18-21 to CD 14/15, and is just trying to cover all of its bases, or it had way too much coffee that morning.

When I added my temperature this morning, I still have 5 days of predicted ovulation, but it has shifted from starting on July 23 to July 21. Assuming I'll be ovulating around CD 14/15 like I have been lately, I'll be in my two week wait during my vacation and I'll either start my period or find out I'm pregnant around our first year anniversary. What an anniversary present we could potentially get.


  1. I'm so sorry. I don't blame you for being in a funk! I'm sending you lots of hugs and baby dust. It would be so wonderful if you and Keegan got a BFP for your anniversary gift! I'll be crossing my fingers for you.

  2. So sorry. Same boat. Chin up :) xoxo

  3. the funks are the worst.
    i think you are a trooper my dear.
    and i just know that its all happening this way for a reason and it has something to do with timing. its so dumb sometimes maybe but i think we were meant to struggle and i was meant to be pregnant with baby G when my grandpa passed, to save myself and my sanity.
    its something like that for you. (hopefully not sad)... shoot. my words suck.
    i am hoping it is meant to be a great one year anniversary gift for the both of you. and we basically have the same one year anni so i will celebrate hugely for you.
    i am thinking of you DAILY. hang in there champ.
    youll be a mama, i know it.
