So unfortunately, no pleasant surprises….BFN….so all day today while at worked I drowned my sorrows in diet pepsi, now that I’m home I cracked opened a nice cold beer...

Our ***?!?!? appointment is in three weeks, so DH and I have lots of soul searching and discussions ahead of us to determine our next steps.

Not sure how active I’ll be on here the next couple of weeks, and sorry I’m not doing personals, please believe that I’m so happy for all the BFP around here and so excited and hopeful for you ladies with upcoming retrievals and transfers. Thanks for all the support you all have shown me!

I wonder why * appeared for W T F ?!?!?

Oh Aimee! I'm so sorry! I really thought this would be it for you. Sadly, I know how you feel, failed IVF is devastating. Take all the time that you need. Surprisingly, I'm still recovering from it and I learned about failed IVF on February 21st. If you want to talk, please pm me. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.....

Aimee - dang it!!! Gosh I wish this was 100% that it worked for everyone. It's just not fair. Like Nicholle said it is devastating. I am so sorry and I realize that having one of your worst fears just happened. I am praying for your heart to heal so you can move on. Do you have Frosties Aimee? I can't remember I am sorry.
Why so long till your next appointment? did you want it that way?

Aimee, I am devastated for you! I really thought that you would get your surprise BFP yesterday.

I am sending healing thoughts your way, and will be here to support whatever decision you come to.

Hugs, Aimee...I'm so sorry you didn't get better news

(Oh, and W T F is considered the same as cussing, so when you type it together JM censors it.)

Hi all,

Aimee, big-big hugs to you. I know how much this meant to you. Your baby will come soon!

To all the other BFPs...congrats!

Me: Injections are going well. DH is strangely not fazed by mixing the Gonal F and Menapur and quite competent doing the injections! Symptoms have been mild headaches and bloating. Thank God no moodiness. Just had my first sonogram this morning and we have 17 follies growing with 8mm lining, so they're coming along well!!

Feeling better today Leah? I hope so!

Me: RE this morning. Lining is now 10.5 C We still need it to get to a B or A but he is liking the looks of it. Still on 1.5 of Delestrogen and 4 oral Estrodiol. I am to call this afternoon for my next instructions after they look at my blood work. He didn't mention a little fluid someplace but said that was ok. Donor goes back tomorrow (thurs) and I go back tomorrow too. Not sure if she will trigger tomorrow or not yet. RE seemed to think not yet. I took my gift there too they will give it to her tomorrow.

Good Luck today Grace!

How are the other ladies feeling?

Hi ladies! Long time no talky talky! So sorry about all the bfns! My goodness!! It really sucks! I haven't read a lot of the posts, so sorry I don't call out individually. Good luck to everyone testing soon! About to have egg retrials, and those Who are starting medication!

AFM - after my bfn my second consult we found that I had polyps so I get to have those removed on Friday. My dr believes that is the cause. Dh and I decided we try one more time with our frozen embys and if they don't stick then we will move on to adoption. We aren't 100% sure when we want to do the FET, but it looks like it will be I the next few months. More waiting. I hate waiting!!! So good luck to everyone! Hopefully we all get hit with the positive stick sooner then later :-)
