Pffff..I have given up on trying to be positive. My RE even told me on my last IVF cycle that "this was DEFINITELY the one" and "I am so pg". She even said that women who have "textbook cycles like this in this clinic wind up pg". Well, it was another BFN. I don't believe anybody who says "don't worry...it will happen". I think I am just going through the motions now. Unfortunately, I am researching about babies addicted to meth amphetamines because I feel like that is my destiny (adoption through the county where 80% of the newborns have a meth addiction).
 


So much for hope.....

Oh Maddy, I'm so sorry. I thought for sure it was going to be this time for you. But like you said, at least you have all that great insurance. Try to stay positive.


And Jules ............ I totally have BOB!!!

I haven't read the other response.

Although it is nice to have a positive attitude, I have heard of enough stories of 'the perfect cycle' not being successful that I don't put a lot of faith in the science of it all. Sure, there is good timing, but just because everything is just so, doesn't mean it's going to work. And on the other side, I have heard of people getting pregnant when there was no way possible it was going to work. You just don't know.

I think it's always good to have hope and dream, but don't start living in the fantasy until you know it's for real.

Just my thoughts.

I concur. So many people get pregnant by accident, when they weren't trying to or even when using birth control. So it would only stand to reason that people who are doing everything "right" don't. Unfair as it is, must just be part of the big scheme of things.
