Thanks for the welcome everyone! I've really enjoyed reading your posts from the last few weeks. Regarding coping with negative feelings and "preparing for the worst", my DW and I had a great conversation about this after my BFN last cycle. I usually come from a perspective of "prepare for the worst" not because it makes the disappointment any easier to handle, but because I sort of feel as though by not preparing I would be actually taking something for granted and jinxing myself. I'm not *really* that superstitious, but I guess it sneaks up on me in moments like this when I feel so out of control. We talked about how maybe I could try to turn that around, and consider that maybe the real "jinx" would be in not preparing for the possibility of a positive outcome. I think for me it's a freeing idea, to think that it might be OK to have hope for success without knocking on every piece of wood I can find...

To GISDiva and Coati, sorry about AF. Coati, last month my BFN was followed up with a pint of Ben & Jerry's "Chocolate Therapy", so I can relate!

My wife (30) and I (32) have been legally married since 2006. We are proud queer mamas to baby W, born 10/10/2013.

Dakipode, so true about over-eating...I'm an emotional eater and I always need to have something in my mouth if I'm sitting down....maybe I should try a pacifier??? (Joking...)

Xerxella, YAY for EWCM!!! I used to have so much before DD1....like I had to wear a panty liner...sorry, tmi....now I find I have much less...and I'm only 28! Yeesh!

Coati, good luck on the HSG! Let us know how it goes.
