So, for those of you that are participating in Babywatch 2006 , we are officially "trying" now. This is our first month or cycle or whatever--we were supposed to wait 6 months (Doctor originally said 1 year, but settled on 6 months later) and we thought that five and a half months would be okay. So here we are and I can tell already---this sucks. My boobs hurt and I'm exhausted, but I think that I've talked myself into those symptoms which is a total crazy lady thing to do. I took one of those early pregnancy tests this morning, because according to my little ovulation calendar and a 24-day cycle, today should have been the first day that a test could work. Negative. You know I think that there should be special tests for people that actually want to get pregnant. So instead of saying NOT PREGNANT, there should be a little scrolling marquee through the window--"Okay Sweetie. Now listen, you're not pregnant this month, but I have a really good feeling about next month. Don't freak out, everything will be fine. Also, you're beautiful and everybody loves you."

Okay, it sounds like I'm upset, but I'm really not. This is our first month trying, and it's still kinda early to test anyway, but dammit, I've been waiting to bring a baby home since May 2005 and I'm sick of waiting. I thought that nine months was a long time. I never thought that I would have to pile at least another year on top of that. Ugh, this is such bullshit.

congratulations on now officially trying. we've been trying since April, so maybe we'll get lucky with a BFP around the same time. & wishing you heaps of good luck.

officially trying....how does it feel? I am looking forward to being able to say that, although it scares me to death at the same time. I hope things go smoothly for you as you enter this next phase.....and you will have to give me advice!

de-lurking to comment... the tests that claim to work up to 5 days before your expected period? Bulls***. But if you're really curious about the pee sticks, check out peeonastick.com. Always good for some fun.

I hope you don't have to wait too much longer to bring home baby.
