Not pregnant, but alive

I caught two trains in Belgium today to get to the fertility clinic - one at 7:30, the other at 9:30. On my way back, the train was travelling very slowly, and I noticed several men in bright yellow vests walking along the other tracks. As it was snowing quite heavily, I thought nothing of it.

Then on I saw the news item "25 dead in train crash outside Brussels" flash across my desktop. My husband was also due to catch a train that morning, and I had not heard from him since I left the house. My hands were shaking as I called his work, and I was so happy to hear his voice on the other end. He had not heard about the crash, and once I told him the news, he was so glad that I was okay, too.

While I was on the phone with him, I got the call from the clinic telling me that I was not pregnant, and they suggest one last shot at IUI with injectable Menopur.

But all in all, I feel extremely lucky today.


  1. Sorry about the negative test. But, the train story caught my attention this morning too. I hope all is well...give him a big hug when you get home! Take care!

  2. Wow, how scary to have something like that happen so close to you. I know that I'd pick a safe and healthy DH over a BFP any day. Even though the BFN still sucks.
    I hope that the menopur cycle does the trick for you. The waiting really is awful though.

  3. Gosh...scary. So glad to hear you and the hubby are okay...but sorry about the negative. :-(
