Well my blood work was bad news. It came back negative. So I guess the digital pregnancy test was a false positive. :'(

Oh well, I guess we keep trying

I'm so sorry to hear that Shannon.  Is this your first baby you are trying to conceive?  We are trying for our first (over 3 years now) and no luck besides some positive ovulation tests...  We're all here for you if you need to vent and I'll keep you in my prayers!

I had a chemical pregnancy before I got pregnant with my first baby and I had used a digital pregnancy test which said "pregnant", too, then got my period 6 days later.  I totally feel your pain, girl.  Oh, and I went to the doctor when I started bleeding and my labs were negative, too.  So, in fact, it was not a "real" pregnancy after all.  So heartbreaking!  Those digital tests are too darn sensitive!!  

But, the good news is, 4 months later (8 total ttc) I got pregnant with my son, who's 15 months old and now I'm 29 weeks pregnant with #2 who is our little surprise baby.  

How long have you been TTC?  The funny thing with us was the month I got pregnant, had I not, the doctor would have started me on something to help, like clomid, I imagine.  Also, 4 days before I found out I was pregnant, my husband did a semen analysis - of course he didn't need to after all, but it seemed just when we thought something was wrong - BAM - Pregnant!  I hope you get your BFP soon, too!

No this will be our 2nd child. We have a son that's 5.

I haven't tried the ovulation tests, but I've been tracking my bbt's for a few months too

YAY! Congrats!

We've been trying to conceive for 9 months. I'm actually considering going to my doctor to see if there's something wrong. The problem is, when we conceived our son, it happened with no prob. It was like BAM! we were pregnant. For some reason this time around, it just doesn't wanna happen.

Just means more practice ;-)

Well they say practice makes perfect...or babies in our case...LOL ;-)  Best of luck, girl.  If it happened once, it'll happen again - sometimes it just takes longer for some reason.  It can take up to 12 months for a perfectly normal couple to conceive, so don't be stressin' too much!  I am sure everything's fine. :-)

It always is when we want it soooooo bad. Just try not to stress about it and take it one day at a time. I know that easier said then done but trust me it works!

Yes that's true. We've started trying again, so maybe this will be our time :)

It probably wasn't a false positive but a chemical pregnancy.  Either way, I'm really sorry.  It's heartbreaking and my thoughts and prays are with you.
