I've been lurking and reading for a little while now - just registered last night. Af is late-late-late, and I'm not sure what to think. I'm nauseous, but have taken about 8 POAS tests - all negatives.

So I called today and made an appt. for a blood test. I haven't been nervous at all - until now. It's silly, right? I mean, with the poas tests - by the 3rd one, I was just expecting a negative - so nothing to be nervous about. With the blood test, it's a more definitive test - today I find out, well at least I take thes test that tells me - am I or aren't I? I've been calm, and happy about the possability of a baby, until now. Now I'm a nervous wreck. This is nuts.

I'm rambling - trying to cal mmy nervous brain. Don't mind me.

ItyBty- i can't wait to hear the results of the blood test. it is completely normal to feel excited one minute then anxious the next. i mean, having a baby is the biggest, most life-changing blessing ever! let us know how things go at the doc!!

ItyBty I go through that each month waiting for AF. I want a baby but right before AF I start wondering if I am crazy to have another at this age, or maybe I need to lose more weight, get in better shape etc.... Looking forward to hearing your news.

SUpposedly they'll call tomorrow - but that means they'll call home, and I'll be at work, so I still won't get my answer until tomorrow night.

I'm just anxious. Af is goign on 3 weeks late, but I've taken a bunch of tests at home - all neg. It's like it's taunting me - am I or aren't I?

I'm way to impatient for this kind of stuff.

Dr's office didn't call - and I wasn't able to call from work.

Doesn't much matter though.. cause AF decided that three weeks late was a good time to show up. (along with the worst cramps I have ever had in all my years : )

*sigh*

Not entirely sure how I feel now. Not entirely sad, but certainly not happy. I'm just kinda numb. I guess thats how it goes. I was just really hoping for this, but it was not meant to be, for whatever reason.

Dr's office never did call - thats annoying, since when I asked when I should call - they clearly said "We'll call"

Thanks for letting me vent. Hopefully in a month or so I'll be posting t he same thing - but with better results next time.
