*Hugs* I’m sorry.

I think the excitement at the possibility of a baby could have made you think you were pregnant. I’ve had that happen before and I get so disappointed each time. You didn’t do anything wrong, your time will come.

I am sorry you’re feeling this way. You will be a momma before you know it.

Hi sweetie! I’m so sorry you got a BFN! 🙁 Honestly don’t feel bad for feeling this way, it’s SO common, take a quick browse through this TTC board and you’ll find countless threads. It’s just natural when you want something really badly to get emotional. 

I wanted to comment on the swordfish you mentionned eating. You say:

“And thinking maybe it’s my fault for eating swordfish in Hawaii as I only just discovered you’re not meant to have it if you’re pregnant or TTC.”

It is NOT your fault at all! First of all, the issue with swordfish is that it is a fish that contains high levels of mercury, which admitedly, can be harmful. The real problem is that it takes a while for the mercury to get out of your system. BUT it is not as if having a piece of swordfish will somehow make you miscarry! Here is an article that might help:


There are so many things to “do” and “know” that it’s impossible to be aware of them right off the bat, especially when you hadn’t even officially started TTC yet! Please don’t beat yourself up over it. 

I’m sincerely hoping you get your BFP next month! *hugs* I hope you start to feel better soon.
