I just wanted to let you all know that I am through for a while, but I donĎt know how long. I am tired of all of this, and though I know that it will still be in my head and my heart, I canít continue to get my hopes up, and pretend that something might work, when I know that it isnít going to.

I just feel so horrible about it all the time. I feel like I am keeping DH from having the children that he wants. He, obviously, would have no problem in reproducing if it werenít for me. I know that he doesnít see it this way, but I do, and it makes me feel terrible.

I feel like there is no more hope for us. Even though he is a wonderful doctor, and a very kind man, I know that there is very little more my OBGYN can do for me. The closest RE I can find is over 3 hours away, and with us taking care of mom, driving that far is not an option.

I love you ladies to pieces, and will, of course, be checking in on you a lot and waiting to see more BFPís! (Carmen, I wish you a very happy and healthy 9 months! ) I just wonít be posting as much. (Though I probably will still post once in a while so you all donít forget me. ) I donít know how long this TTC break will last. It may last forever, it may not last very long at all, who knows? All I know right now is that Iíve got to get away from it for a while, as best as I can.

Oh, and I will be sending my Secret Sister gift out, as promised.

Good luck to you girls, and lots and lots of

I hate to see you leave/not post as much, but I know you need to get your head on straight and start feeling more optimistic about TTC to continue trying. We will all miss you not being here.

I have probably had a few days a month feeling exactly like that, I'm sorry it's so hard! I hope your break leads you to coming back more hopeful and positive! I hope you keep posting!

I'm a little late, but I just wanted to add I totally understand where you are coming from. DH and I are not actively trying this month either, and probably won't be again until fall. I couldn't bring myself to prevent even though we did consider it.

I hope you keep posting here. I'd miss seeing you!

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

I'm sure all of us here can understand you needing to take a break. I have to take breaks from visiting the message board sometimes just to clear my head. I wish you the best, and I hope you come back as soon as you are ready!
