Carolyn,

It's too early to give up hope yet, but I know you must have been so disappointed not to get a second line. I'm hoping one pops up tomorrow or Monday. You must be emotionally exhausted by now. You've been thru a lot this year. I'm glad you will keep trying if this cycle doesn't work, but hopefully you won't have to use your frosties. I will keep sending bfp thoughts your way.

I posted to your testing thread also. I wanted to check on you as you had said you had the spotting.. Truly I can not tell you how many ladies have the spotting (just like AF) some even full on heavy spotting and they get their BFP's... I truly belive that you cant give up hope yet.. It is too early to do the HPT.. Like Laura said you must be exausted as you and your dear DH have been through so much.. I am not giving up as I still belive this will be your cycle.. Love and hugs and huge huge sticky baby dust vibes to you..
love

Thanks Laura and Jackie. I do really appreciate you staying around to cheer me on when you are already on your way.

No fairytale for me I'm afraid. Just the same as last time. Spotting has pretty much turned into full on bleed for me. Hard for me to say but AF is here on Day 12, exactly as last cycle. I shall go for the blood test on Tuesday as my clinic will not book me in for follow up until I have attended. Follow up is at least 2 weeks later so will be after Xmas now. Dh and I are going to try to get a last minute holiday to somewhere sunny as we don't want to put a downer on Xmas for the rest of the family or pretend that everything is alright when it is not. After 2 cycles and 2 ops in the last 8 months, we need some time out together as well. Dh will not talk yet about what next but we have snow babies from April-May cycle, as you know, so could try a FET. My clinic makes you wait at least 3AFs so guess the earliest that I could cycle again would be February whether we go for a FET or another Fresh cycle.

Vero - I am so hoping that you will beat me over the finish line! Or else that we can cycle together in 2007.

I am going to take some time away from the boards over the next few weeks to re=group. I feel quite punch drunk. I do know that I could not have done anything different/better this last cycle. That makes me feel pleased with myself that I threw everything at the issue. But does also make me wonder what I need to do to make this work for me & dh.

Thanks for all the support & freindship. Wishing you all a wonderful Xmas.

Lots of Love

Carolyn,

I am so, so sorry. I was hoping this would be your time. You did everything perfectly this cycle, it's so unfair that it doesn't seem to have worked.

I think it's a great idea to go somewhere for Xmas. You and DH could use some time away from everything to heal.

Please know I am thinking of you!

Hi everyone!

I've been thinking about you all for the last two months. Sorry to have dissapeared but back in October I was hospitalized on bedrest because my cervix had dialated and I had some bleeding. I stayed in bed with my feet up for 4 weeks and I lasted four weeks and delivered a beautiful baby boy in November (at 26 weeks gestational age)- I've only been back home recently since I needed physio to be able to walk again- my back gave out from the bedrest. My DH and I have been going to the hospital everyday even sleeping there- our little angel had a heart operation this week and after a major scare of losing him -today his condition has stabilized and we are counting our blessings!!!

I hope that all of you are doing well- I will have to check back in with you to read up and all that has been going on. God bless you all and I am keeping my fingers crossed for all of you.

If I can't come back soon I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a new year filled with blessings you so wish for.

Take care,
Dania

Oh Dania, dear, so incredibly much has happened in your life. Congratulations on your beautiful little baby boy!

I pray and hope that you will be able to take him home with you soon. It is wonderful of you to write to us on the first day that his condition has stabilized.

You must have had a very hard time in the past weeks. I cannot believe what you had to go through. I am sending you all my wishes,

Love, Vero

Dania,

Congratulations on your little boy! I'm so sorry you had such a scare. I work on an antepartum floor, so if you lived in Dallas, I could have been your nurse those 4 weeks!

I know you have a long road ahead with your little one, but it sounds like he is a fighter. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

Carolyn- Please know I'm thinking of you!

Oh Dania

What you have had to go through. I am so thrilled that you have a little baby boy. As the ladies have said, he sounds like such a fighter. You must have been so scared.

Sending you huge hugs. Please let us know how you are all doing when you have a moment.

So hope that you might be able to take him home for Xmas or very early in the New Year.

Please know that we are thinking of you.

Big Hugs

Hi Carolyn,
I am so sorry to hear you have had another BFN. I was really wanting this to be your turn. Its so bloody unfair. I understand you needing time out and I will hover around to check on your progress over the coming year. Much love.

Dania, what a terrible time you have had! I am pleased to hear that your little boy is fighting for you. Good luck with his operation. Kepp us posted as to how he does.

Everyone else, I hope you all have a great christmas. I am scaling back my time here as I have been so unwell and it is really taking it out of me. I will pop in from time to time to see how our girls are getting on.

Thank you all for your friendship,
Em

My Dear April-May Pals

Thanks you all the support.

As expected, it is another BFN for me. Just took the call from the clinic.

Dh & I are going to go on holiday and forgetting about 2006.

Review just scheduled for Jan 10th so with Xmas hopefully not too far away. Will see then whether we go for another Fresh cycle or use the snow babies from cycle 1.

Hugs to you all.

That is terrific news that all is well. A little girl. How cool! You must be over the moon.

Lots of Love

PS - Dh and I have booked a holiday in the sun. We leave on Saturday and are back New Years Eve - hotel looks nice with a spa for me and a golf course for Mike. Busy delivering all the Xmas presents and getting holiday stuff together. Trying not to think about ivf too much. Had a rough week physically as lost a lot of blood but seems to be passing finally for me so starting to feel better. Focused on having a nice holiday and then seeing what the consultants has to say which will only be a 10 day wait when we get back

PPS - Vero, Laura, Em, Dania and Jackie - Have a wonderful Xmas if I don't get here next week as quite busy rushing around with work/social/giving gifts before we go away. Hugs to you all. You have been a great help to me through the last 9 months (ironic) since I joined these boards. Wishing you everything that you wish for yourselves in the New Year. Lots of Love Carolyn xxx
