    (((HUGS))) That is so hard to get excited thinking that you might be pregnant, and then see that BFN. Hope you are doing okay with it.

    I am back and forth. I mean, there's a reason why DH had the big'V. It WAS a mutual agreement. And, like lots of women, I got buyers remorse afterwards. The thought that we might have one more and a miraculous gift from God because of the circumstances.... hard not to get excited about it. But, I'd feel pretty awful about it being positive, too. I have LOTS of friends on here who have been TTC for YEARS. And I have a sister who is starting to get into the "it will never happen" category. If I WERE to fall pregnant despite the medical intervention to NOT get pregnant, I'd have a hard time not hating myself for all the women in the opposite boat.

    At this point, I just want AF to finally start showing up so I at least KNOW what's going on.

    Saturday we had our family thanksgiving and I was having such a rough day that I over did it on the wine. My sister and Dad had to drive us home and then my sister was nice enough to tuck our kids in bed for us. My 8 year old told her "when I grow up, I am NEVER drinking beer or wine." I feel embarrassed to say the least. But because I was drunk, I didn't have the proper restraints on my mouth and pried insensitively into her fertility issues and then I went further and told her about my "problem" of not having AF and then I stupidly told her of the tests I just bought and said "If you ever need to steal them, come on over!"..... I feel pretty awful about it.

    I'm gonna have her over for coffee and apologize. Knowing my sister, I'm sure she doesn't hold it against me.. but it took two years for us to get pregnant with #2 and I REMEMBER the heart break I'd have after leaving a family event where someone tried to offer me fertility advice and whatnot.

    Anyway........ slightly off topic there.

    I understand. At Thanksgiving I was with SIL, who has found out she can never have children and her DH is not willing to adopt. I felt awful inside thinking there was a possibility of a 4th, when she could not even have one. I also remember the 3 years it took to have DD1 and the heart ache when hearing others talking about becoming pg when they did not mean to. I am sure though, your sister would just want your happiness. Just before I became pg with DD1 my sister got pg with DD4. She was so afraid I would be upset with her. However, I was delighted for her. Yes, I was sad it was not me, but I was completely happy for her and happy to have another niece or nephew.

    Everybody makes mistakes, and having a little too much to drink and saying that to your sister is definitely not the worst thing anyone has ever done. I'm sure that it was a little hard for her, but I'm also sure that she realized that you didn't mean anything by it and that it was just one of those dumb things that people do when they've over indulged a little.
