not this round.

5 tests = NEGATIVE
I guess I knew it all along but seriously each and every test is like torture.
I don't care who you are but when you take a pregnancy test--- you have a million emotions running through your mind and those 5 minutes seem like 5 hours. You sit there staring at that little window and then your mind starts to play tricks.  You start to see double lines. Then all the sudden in the blink of an eye its no longer unclear-- that 1 big pink line is clear as day and there is nothing else there.
hmm.
negative.
I still feel okay about this though. We have 2 other vials waiting for us in storage. If we don't get pregnant after those 2 than we will see where we stand and talk about if we should order more.
In a couple weeks we will start testing again and hopefully we will then get pregnant on that round.

Ryan isn't phased at all.  He is still as confident as ever and knows it will happen.
I am actually okay about it all.  Of course I would have loved to have it happen on the first try but I know its not expected.  I am more anxious and excited for it to happen whenever it does.  Maybe if by #3 we still are not pregnant ill feel a bit worse but for right now I still feel good about it happening.

Isn't it still too early to test, weren't you just implanted last Sunday?

I know this sounds so rude but normally I dont want people to be pregnant of have babies because I am insanely jealous about it considering that just isn't an option for us right now. But REALLY TRULY I was SO hoping you would be, first try. You deserve it. You will be my thoughts and good luck for next time! :)

You have a great attitude!!! But, just wondering if it's too early? I've had negative negative negative and then a positive followed by yet another negative. I've had four kids but still not sure when exactly you know? Anyway this is going to work if not now you will have a baby soon!!!! You are so strong. I'm proud of you.

It takes 10-12 days after insemination for implantation to occur. No implantation = no positive test. Your tests aren't valid until at least Oct 26-28th!! Wait a few more days and try again. Really. Physiologically, if you ovulated on the 16th, it's almost impossible to get a positive pregnancy test at this point. Check out the book, "Taking Charge of your Fertility" - it gives a great explanation for the whole process.

I am wondering the same thing as the last 2 post isnt it to early? Isnt it a week before your missed period which would be like 3 week pregnant? I have no idea but I think you should keep taking prego test in like a week in case it is to early to detect. :)

Wait a few more days and test again. It could take a bit longer for your HCG levels to rise enough to show on a test. I had two pregnancies that showed negative on tests at the dr office, but they drew blood anyway and I was pregnant both times. Praying for you every day.

so sorry kendra.. that's a tough blow, but you're taking it in stride. my offer for the ovulation tests is still up. ash

Aurora's comment was dead on. It is impossible to get a "positive"' result at this time. You need to wait to at least this coming Friday at the earliest. Even then, you could still test positive NEXT Sunday. I'm a nurse and mom of 3. I know how nerve racking it is waiting to test, but give your body a chance to show what's really going on. Right now you could have a little miracle just making it to your uterus and trying to nestle in! I'm hoping you come back in a few days with a very exciting announcement to make!

Love you and praying for you Kendra :)

Ditto on everyone else who said it’s too early. Still I believe "you’re pregnant until Aunt Flow shows up." So act like it. I too am one of those that am jealous when I hear of other's being PG, but for you, I so hope so, you need a little somebody to hold and never let go, so no more testing until the middle of the week. And lots of baby dust and sticky vibes, I'm holding out; as I tell myself all the time, Miracles happen, some just take time.

I am so excited for you to get pregnant when it happens! I look forward to checking your blog weekly.I hope the comments above are correct & maybe you are pregnant! If not, you have the perfect attitude for this situation. Thank you for blogging this so openly. I really feel like you are impacting my life by writing so freely about your situation. I hope someday to be able to use my knowledge from your blog to help someone else out someday. I can't thank you enough. Good luck to you!

I am with the advice above! The soonest you can find out that you are prego is 10 days after the date of conception and even then you could have a false negative. I know you were excited to find out but dont let your hopes down yet! Look on line there is a lot of information about when your HCG levels are high enough to show a positive result. Best wishes either way! Sending you love, Kelsi

Kendra I just did this same process in August! I got my positive ovulation test on Aug 16th (day 16 for me) and they had me come in the next day Aug 17th to be inseminated! I took one of those 5 day early pregnancy tests on Aug 25th (8 days later) and got a positive! So yes maybe you are to early! Today should be 8 days later for you if I counted right so maybe wait and test again! I was 3w 3d pregnant when I got my positive so it is possible to get a positive that early but not common! I am praying for you and hope nothing more than for you to really be pregnant this time around but if you aren't it will happen soon!!! Trust your husband cause I feel he knows and really feels what is to be for you two! =) I am glad you are ok with a negative for now! And yes a negative pregnancy test is like a kick in the guts over and over again when you keep taking them! =) Been there done that! Stay strong girl! Lots of prayers and thoughts coming from our family! xoxoxo

It's going to happen! Being patient is just so hard... : ( HUGS

Great attitude! I will happen very soon, I just have a feeling.

You're testing too soon. Those store bought pregnancy tests even the "early" ones are only effective about 6 days before you miss a period. You could be! Don't give up on this cycle yet! Good luck and prayers from a stranger.

I came across this blog for another reason and wasn't sure if you have seen this.

I just LOVE your positive attitude! You can still be pregnant this time around, it might just be early. I am praying for you, and Ryan. Just remember, you always say how he knows it all before it ever comes to be...I'm betting he's right again about this! :)

You are testing way too early! You're getting down about something that may in fact be up! The baby needs time to implant before the hormone surges, and that can take 12-16 days after the spermy's find their way to the egg!

I say, RELAX for a week. Test again. Or wait until your next period is due and perhaps it wont show up!

Don't be obsessive about it, you'll stress yourself out!!

Test again in a week or so. You were testing way too early for ovulation and were disappointed, and now you are testing too early for pregnancy!

I know you are excited and anxious for this to happen! and its true, it might not happen on round 1... however, you are jumping the shark just a tad!! LOL. it's really cute to read about though.

Even though I know ALL these facts, I am obsessive about testing too, and tend to test early, when I know better. Some people do find out earlier than others, but typically it needs to be after your period is due for your body and the cycle to know...

it takes time for that little bugger to travel down and implant.

TIME!!!

So sorry! Was hoping that this would work out the first time, still praying for you guys!!

AJ and Cindy said...

Hang in there! You really are being strong, it's okay to cry and be mad and sad, too,just let it all out. It took us three rounds of insemination with this baby. I am so happy this happens for you soon!!
