Thinking Positively

I believe I have found a way to ensure this next cycle will bring that ever elusive second line.
  • For a mere dollar the single line on the dollar store test informed me that not only am I not pregnant but that I can declare the Sizzling Apple Pie I ate on Friday night (with ice cream and caramel sauce)  was just me PMSing and not actually cheating on my diet. 
  • We are taking this next cycle off of Clomid to give my poor body a break. 
  • "All Natural" is "in" these days anyway, right?
  • T will repeat his SA this month to see if the super dooper "radioactive" multi-vitamins have helped raise his count. (My post about the "radioactive" vitamins is lost in email/blogger world somewhere.  They turn his pee neon yellow and he is afraid we'll end up with some sort of super-hero-like-mutated child due to this.)
  • I ordered myself one of those handy dandy obscenely expensive fertiltiy monitors today. (discounted online, don't worry, not from ebay)
  • Going natural, a way which has NOT worked in the past, I should be thinking "There is no way in Hell this will work". 
  • Spending all that money on the monitor which I haven't purchased before now because it is obscenely expensive and of course I would get pregnant before it would pay for itself so why spend the money because it was obscenely expensive I have pretty much ensured that I will now get pregnant and I will not get my money's worth out of it.
  • Reverse psychology works all the time right?
  • Does it work when you are counting on it?
  • I hope so.

Yup, what Jen said.

Also, um, yeah, when I started trying again after the last miscarriage, I paid for fertility friend, I paid for an ovulation ferning thingy, I bought the books, I bought the thermometer, I figured, I'd do it all that way.

Then I decided I wasn't pregnant. I drank, I smoked, I stopped the white nasty bullets.

Then I took a test. 2 lines. I was sure it was only a matter of time before it went the way of the last three pregnancies.

I drank, I smoked, I ate bad foods, I took the white bullets, but not as faithfully as I should have. I had plans for the pain pills the hospital was going to give me.

Then... Well, we all know my story... I'm due in a mere 8w6d.

This long story is my way of saying reverse psychology is a big hit in my book. I think it's the one thing that kept this one inside me. All my other tries, I was positive, and happy.

This time, I was negative, sad, and sure it was going to end.
