Does anyone else feel like a negative pregnancy test is mocking/judging you for even daring to wonder if this might be the month?

Note: Today's test expired in October 2011, and it's still on the early side to test, so who knows what is really going on, but I just had to check for my own peace of mind. That worked, but it left me wondering whether I was the only one with that sort of feeling.

Another thought...the only thing worse than a negative test is a negative test followed by the discovery that your period has started overnight. That just feels like a slap in the face on top of the mockery/judgement from the test.


  1. Oh, yes! This is why I finally stopped taking home pregnancy tests. It always feels like a rejection.

    I am never pregnant without help from medical professionals so there is no point, really.

  2. It is a total slap in the face. I hope with every cycle that maybe...just maybe.....I could be pregnant. You would think I would have learned a lesson by now. But I think you always hope. It's the infertiles curse.

  3. That used to be the only way I could get my period to start. I'd pee on a pregnancy test and then BAM! A few hours later, conclusive proof.
