Yup, we have The Blood.

Obviously, this is really disappointing, but we’re just so glad we actually got to try this month at all.

Did we  really think I could possibly get pregnant first try?  Er, no.  I just REALLY could have done without the ridiculous symptoms, which I will be ignoring with a vengeance if they ever dare to inhabit my body again. Good lord, is it really necessary for a woman  to have light headedness, painful boobs and other joys for days on end if she isn’t up the duff? Seriously, my head almost fell off.

The weird part? I took BB in the loo with me when I knew the blood had come, because it helped. He was far more interested in flushing while I was still seated than anything else.

The upside?  I get to consume alcohol over Christmas, because we won’t be trying again until January… I’ll be fucked if we’re going to grapple with TTC  head-madness when our crazy family is totally Christmassing Out and exploding at internal politics (there have been dramas of late).

One of the downsides (apart from not being with child, and related stuff)? I HAVE TO HAVE ANOTHER BLOOD TEST because the Hep one was “the wrong one”.


But anyway, happy Thanksgiving, our American friends.

And thanks again to everyone – American and otherwise – for your lovely support, truly.
