Getting off the Rollercoaster - Going for Adoption

“No ticket for you, my girl” – or - “Never trust a smiling cat”

Well, it makes a change from “not bloody pregnant again this month. Bugger.”

I so nearly dared to say in yesterday’s post that I was feeling positive about a positive this month. There is certainly no doubt that we were TTC at the right time etc etc. I had my surefire symptom of going off tea. For a whole day and a half I just couldn’t drink tea – it tasted disgusting, which really is the only consistent symptom I have ever had for any pregnancy, bizarre as it sounds. But the pee-stick wasn’t having any of it, and my temperature took a drop this morning.

I am so disappointed. R was lovely, and said “never mind, I still believe it will happen. Don’t give up”. But it didn’t quite sound sincere to me. I wanted just to get back in bed and stay there, but I had a presentation to do at 8.30 this morning, so a duvet day really wasn’t an option.

Sometimes another month just seems like an eternity.


  • Oh, I know. I hate missing any cycle just in case it was the one. I'm sorry you had yet another disappointment - and that your body was playing tricks on you.

  • Oh, Vivien, I'm sorry. It's worse when our hopes are up, and are then crushed.

    Your last post was so true, and so sad.

  • I'm sorry for the no ticket... this stinks. I hate that your body played tricks on you... Know ultimately I'm thinking of you and reading...

  • I'm so sorry about the negative peestick, Vivien. That's always disappointing, but especially after having symptoms that make you suspicious that the peestick may be positive. Hang in there.

  • Sorry, Vivien. That just sucks.
