I know exactly what you mean. I've done that song and dance before and had to make myself stop. After a few years of nothing, I came to accept that I'm not going to make myself pregnant by pretending there's a line. In fact, when I did get a positive test I threw it away because I convinced myself I was just searching for a line again.

It's been harder lately, especially after those two early m/c. I find myself doing the same thing: hold it this way, bend it that way, take a picture of it and photoshop the everloving crap out of it to see if MAYBE I somehow missed a line with my own two eyes.

I'm on CD31ish and keep getting negatives, but I'm still doing the same thing because I'm so ticked that I'm not only late but haven't gotten a positive test yet either.

A friend from work told me today she is pregnant. Another friend had mentioned to get that she thought I would appreciate hearing first hand. While I appreciated this it was still hard to hear. She is about 18 months younger. But said she had a very low AMH and was told it was almost impossible for her to get pregnant. Happy for her. But still hard to hear when at 41 and 2 failed IVFS and several years NTNP all hope is gone.

Failing to deal with the news that a friend from work is pregnant, she is starting to show.... she is around 18 month younger, she had said she had 0 AMH level, so baby is a miracle, after 2 failed IVFs I would be happy to have a miracle.... I am happy for her, but can't help feeling sad.

I think I may very well throttle the next person who tells me I just need to relax. Just because we are "unexplained" doesn't mean that there isn't a problem.

This thread has went quiet, but today is the day to add a comment!

Feeling incredibly down... a co-worker brought her new born into the office yesterday, it has thrown me off, why do some people, find out that they have 0AMH and then still manage to have a baby.... she has managed to meet, marry and have a baby, while me on the other hand, have multiple test , procedures, a very long wait and 2 failed IVFs... I should be celebrating my kids 3rd birthday this month, instead I have to paint a false smile on my face and be happy for someone else!!!

Life sucks!

Spending hours over the next few weeks teaching GCSE lessons on fertility treatment. Resisting the urge to go into too much detail, just because I can. Feel the slightly unprofessional need to get these young kids to 'get it' and not to ask people if they are trying/ why not etc. etc. Not the time or place or the audience! After the previous few weeks answering questions about pregnancy and birth I'm dreading work.

I'm so tired of reading flyby BFP in threads, especially on LTTTC (here and other sites)! Like, hey I know I've never posted here (or maybe once), but take a look at my tests! Then they disappear from the thread. Or tonight's where they started 10+ other threads, in 2 days, in different sections with "Take a look and tell me what you think" at the same time they're posting in the 1st trimester. Some people just don't understand. I wish there was a little more restrictions on flyby announcements from non-regulars.
