......................HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO US!!! **Deeeep breath** We've hit our one year TTC mark / the start of our 13th cycle. AF showed up first thing this morning. Hey,,,, I should be happy that at least she was on time right? Anyways, I found AF this morning while doing my routine morning potty and was soo bummed that I crawled right back in bed with hubby and we layed there for another 30 mins talking about "the plan". BUT as we lay there, I realized that I WILL NOT have a sweet baby to take out on Halloween this year....(Halloween is also my birthday so thats 2 strikes against that) I thought for sure I would have someone to dress up and take out. We spent last Halloween saying "next year, We'll probably be passing out candy at our home with a sweet baby in our arms"...WRRRROOONNNNGGGGG!!!!!! UGH!! Those thoughts just TORE ME UP!!!! I lost it!!!
So after 'those kind of thoughts' ...we talked about doing a 3rd try at IUI this month. But still not too entirely sure about it. I really want to get back into shape and lose a few pounds before getting pregnant. We're going a cruise the end of April to celebrate our one year wedding anni so I would also like to be looking good for that...so Im ( FOR NOW ) okay with not getting pregnant till April ....yea....lets see how long I say that !! hahah We've been doing this 12 months...whats another 2 ???
UGH!! So....on to cycle 13...never thought I'd be in the TEEN digits..........
Unfortunately I also know how you're feeling. Hang in there, and vent away!
Thank you brie_91 for this fabulous siggy!!
Our TTC journey: 6 cycles Clomid, lap surgery/ D&C, IUI, 2 x IVF; 33 cycles- BFN.
IVF#1 (March 2010) Transferred two 8-cell grade A (perfect) embies- BFN and heartbroken.
IVF#2/FET#1 (Jan/Feb 2011):Transferred two (7&8 cell) grade A (PERFECT) embies- BFN again.
March 2011- February 2012: On BCP due to endometriosis.
March 2012- taking a few months off of BCP and we are TTC naturally.
We will re-evaluate another IVF w/FET try in 2013.
After years of trying, 2 years of fertility meds, multiple surgeries, blood draws and needle sticks, some awful pre-IVF complications, and endometriosis and PCOS,
We are done TTC. Praying for peace as we accept this...
Hoping for some comfort after our most recent (and 3rd) surgery and starting Lupron!

Thanks Ladies....(sigh) It just sucks cause I thought I'd have a little one by now....but---instead of focusing on that idea, I am making sure I'm enjoying every little ounce of time I can with the hubby before all our time is taking by a baby. We are planning trips to keep us busy and our mind off of TTC. .........it still sucks though
