We received the call at 11:23am to let us know that we're not pregnant.  We immediately called Jane (not knowing if she had already received the results), and sure enough, she already had.  Needless to say, all of us were somewhat shocked.

Dr H called us this afternoon to follow up with us and discuss options.  Hearing from him really helped; more on that later.  For now, we are all trying to stay upbeat as we consider our next step in this journey.  Jane is doing okay, and though the Potatoes are a little bit mashed up, we haven't beome French Fries yet...

My apologies for not updating everyone sooner, but I'm sure you understand. 

Thank you all for your good thoughts, well wishes, and prayers.

    So sorry to hear that news! I have been hoping and wondering if you found out....that really stinks that it didn't happen this time, but keep the faith! You were meant to have children :)!

  8. It will happen! Good thoughts- when you're holding your baby/babies, you'll smile knowing how far you've come.

  9. I'm sorry to hear about this. This is just a little road block, your time will come. I'm thinking about the two of you.
