It's odd. I noticed this week that there are at least three other women out there in blogland who are on the same calendar as I am this cycle. We're all CD29 today. The others were all stronger than I and resisted the urge to POAS longer than I did (unless they did it and didn't 'fess up publicly). Yesterday's BFN might be fact, or it might be a symptom of excessively-early testing. I'm suspecting it's fact, though, as the usual preamble to AF's arrival has definitely begun. Instead of scheduling a beta, I'll be scheduling a consult with the RE to determine where we go from here.
Skeptical as I am, I still have a shred of hope that I'm misreading my body and AF won't arrive at all this week. But, realistically, I see that as a very distant possibility.
Anyhow, it's interesting to see how many TTCers shared a common CD1 this go-round. It's kind of like the synchronizing of cycles that happens among co-workers or teammates or close friends who spend a lot of time together. And I feel encouraged by it, as if we're playing the odds and buying a load of lotto tickets together in the hopes that at least one will be a winner. And even if I'm not the winner this cycle, it's been great sharing the cycle with these other women. Go us!
