**I know most of you already know these results, but this is a journal for me as well so bear with me.**
On Friday morning, I had to be at Carle by 7:30am for my blood test for pregnancy. I was so nervous in the morning and just had a gut feeling while I was waiting to have the blood drawn. Luckily, Jason and I had already planned to be off of work (since going to the Bears game the night before - we didn't get home until 1:30am). He had to take the dog to the vet, but I wanted to stay home for "the" call. I heard from my doctor's office about 11:40am that the test was negative. Luckily, Jason was home about 30 minutes later because I'm not sure how much longer I could wait to tell him. When he got home, he knew right away by looking at me that it wasn't good news. After lots of crying on my end, I knew I needed to make a few phone calls and send an email (sorry if you got this, but there is no way I could have called everyone). It was a long day that ended with painful eyes, but we know that this is not the end of the road for us. Luckily, we can do this same procedure again ... hopefully with different results!
