WTF...Sigh...FML...@#$%...and stuff

Posted by J - azoowho@gmail.com |

We ended a year chock full of bad news with, you guessed it, even more bad news. L got her friend (some friend!) on December 31st, putting an end to our hopes for round 2. This one was much tougher than the first failed IUI as we really felt like this was "the one". Something just felt different this time. L has been in a pretty bad place the last few days and I am really trying to be the strong, brave one, which is not easy. Of course, no one ever said any of this would be easy, but the on the job training is kinda brutal. I am trying to keep the attitude that this will only make the good news down the road feel that much better (things are always much sweeter after a mouthful of sour right?), but every one of these makes that road look longer, bumpier and more foreboding.

So, it is back to the Clomid, blood work, ultrasounds, and likely a 3rd IUI...

Stay tuned...please? :)

Ugh I'm sorry :( *hugs* to you and give your wife some too (as I'm sure you already are).

I hope 2010 turns out to be the year you two have been waiting for.

I'm sorry. Thinking about you both.

I'm so sorry. I was picturing the two of you celebrating your goods news. Hang in there. From one MFIF couple to another, we're pulling for you.

I am so sorry to hear that. I hope the 3rd time's a charm for the 2 of you. Hang in there!

My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss "veteran". You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my blog: drhousewife.blogspot.com . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at UTInfertilityResearch@gmail.com .

So sorry this cycle didn't work. Please take extra special care of L.

It's hard to be strong when someone you love is suffering and nothing you can say or do will make them feel better.

Just knowing you are there for her will help.

oh man. Nothing I can say to make you feel better. It can be a long and painful road and all I can hope to offer is that there's lot of people out there who kinda know how you feel and have been there (and have made it.)
