So I’m about a week late. I got hit with a super case of baby rabies and FH and I decided that after the honeymoon we would start trying (June). But then when I was late, I couldn’t help it….I was still kinda meh when it was negative, even though I knew it probably would be. Just sharing here cuz I didn’t tell FH I was disappointed, since I know it’s better if we wait til June, which isn’t that far off.

I had a scare a few months before I actually got pregnant. I was totally convinced I was pregnant because my periods are never, ever late and it was late this time. When it finally did come, I found myself diappointed too. I was at the point where I didn’t even want kids yet and I was still sad about it. I never told Darling Husband about it.
I think it’s always a let down when you think something is happening and then it doesn’t.

@zippylef: That’s exactly how I felt. Just really sad like “wow, I guess I want that more than I thought.” I thought waiting was totally okay and that the logical part of me would be able to like overrule the part that is like “family! now!” but I guess not. It doesn’t help that we have been together for awhile and a long engagement..

I completely understand. I’ve always said that I would be ok as long as I got pregnant by the time I was 30, but… I’m 25 now, and we’ve had the discussion that if it did happen, we’d be ok (financially). I’m on the pill, but sometimes I secretly wish to be part of the 1% of pregnancies on the pill. I would never tell him that, and I hope that doesn’t make me a bad person!
As women, this all affects us more because it’s our bodies that they grow in… and when there’s the slightest possibility, some women go into “mommy mode” immediately, I think. It’s hard to come down from that.
