  • Hi everyone,

    Sorry it took me so long to give an update but the sad news is my IVF did not work.

    I had a difficult week especially planning and throwing my sister her baby shower just as I found out I wasn't pg. I started getting my period last wed... so I figured it didn't work. The Beta on Friday confirmed it. My dh took the call for me. It was hard to hear that my hcg level was ZERO. I threw my sisters shower on the Saturday and then had a wedding to go to on Sunday. So it was a busy w/e which helped I guess. It finally hit me Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday I wasn't too sad but today was a difficult day. I'm tired today so maybe that's why. Shawn has been wonderful. He surprised me with a doz. roses and a beautiful card. I've been trying to be grateful for what I have in my life, a wonderful family and dh. I guess life could be a lot worse. (But it is hard to fend off the thoughts of "maybe I will never ever get pg" that keep creeping in to my mind.)

    We will try a FET next year. Until then I guess we will just relax and ttc naturally. You never know
    stranger things have happened right?

    I just wanted to thank everyone for all your support and well wishes they mean a lot.
    Take care

  • I am so sorry. Your DH sounds absolutely wonderful and yes you are lucky to have him we all are to have our DH's but there is nothing wrong with wanting and wishing for a baby to complete our lives. I hope and pray that it happens for you after going through such an emotional and physical rollercoaster. I hope you can relax over the next few months and enjoy being together.
