Default Need help keeping positive.

So today was my 4th u/s and b/w this cycle. I can't remember how long I've been on meds, but it's been longer than it should be. I started at my 1st monitoring u/s with 2 large follies and 4 small ones. They kept me on the meds to try to get the small ones to grow larger. Well, that didn't work. In fact, as of today I have 1 good follie and the others seem to have stalled out. RE said he really expected to see 2-3 good follies on this dose and I'm responding in an unpredictable manner. He worries when we move to IVF that I may not respond well to the meds. Even with a good med response he expects at best a retrieval of 6-8 eggs on high dose meds, because of my low ovarian reserve. Of course he didn't use all those specific words, but that's my translation with just a touch of reading between the lines.

They're calling me later today with my b/w results and I'll likely go in for an IUI today, tommorrow, or the next day depending on b/w.

We haven't even had the IUI yet, and I'm ready to call this one a BFN. Sigh!! Why can't this be easier?

It only takes one. It is SO easy to get discouraged while on the IF road. Remember, worry is never useful. We just have to re-focus our attention on what is useful. What helped me in those down times was to remember we were committed to having a family, we just weren't sure how that family would get created. A quote I picked up from a Buddhist monk that I used for my mantra, "When conditions are sufficient, your baby will arrive." kept me focused on our dream.

Thanks ladies. I had to giggle at the buddhist monk quote, because I really do feel that way. I just wish I could figure out what I need to do to make conditions sufficient.
 
Guess that's a bit against the whole budhist thing.

I seriously think someone is trying to teach me the virtue of patience. So far I'm not getting it.

We could all use a Buddhist monk, I think. Don't give up yet. Apparently everything happens for a reason.
