Hello ladies

We: the very very best of luck tomorrow.

Kamina: I really hope your beta comes in strong and the loss of symptoms is the progesterone.

Leora: thank you for your thoughts.

Lauren319; thanks to you too

Sunshine and stars; oh a leanabh, im so so sorry for you.there are no word and I only wish there were.I will keep you and your dh and your little one in my thoughts and prayers.

Afm: Again thank you all for the good wishes. I never expected to feel as bad as I have emotionally about the miscarriage. I may have only been nine weeks when i miscarried but so many hopes and plans were bound up in it and I loved being pregnant. My poor dh is devestated. Im not even sure if its ok for me to have moved to this board as I dont know when I will be able to start the next cycle? Because of my work as a psychotherapist most of my initial thoughts and help are always for other people and there is nowhere other than this board where I can actually say im not sure how long this is going to take me to get over. I hope that doesn't sound selfish or self indulgent.

. And on that vein im so used to seeing joy for people and really being happy for them that im afraid when I cant do that, as I havnt been able to this week, even - im ashamed to say it - for some of your good news - that I wont get that ability back. And so I ask you to bear with me.

Oiche mhaith (good night)

We won't be able to try again until after the holidays (in the new year).
Sorry for the sad news but it's been hard. :cry:

Hello Ladies,

I haven't posted as much, but I do lurk on here occasionally! :-) I wish everyone well and send lots of baby dust! I thought my transfer (FET) was going to be 10-13, but it will probably be 10-14. I had an ultrasound yesterday and they want my lining to be a bit thicker (it was somewhere between 7 and 8). I go back for another ultrasound and blood work on Tuesday and hopefully my lining has gotten better.

We- thanks so much for asking about me! I think I can speak for everyone on here that you are the most positive and motivational person!! Wishing you good luck with your beta tomorrow!

Take care!

Oh Sunshineandstars, I'm so sorry for your loss, I know it feels like someone died in the family and even the moment we find out we are pregnant we become emotionally attached. It's never easy and I wish more then anything every one of us could be guaranteed a healthy baby! Yet in reality this happens to one out of every four pregnancies. Doctors will tell us it's better to find out now rather then 8 months later, but that's not what we want to hear. Haven't we been through enough already?!?! More then anything, we want answers but all we find out at the WTF appt is maybe it was due to abnormal chromosomes? Even with my first failed IVF, my RE told me life comes with no guarantees and I know he was trying to make understand but I just couldn't, I felt he wasn't helping us, so I moved to another clinic. The truth is you've gotten this far with your clinic, so we know pregnancy can happen. Right now it's hard to accept what happened and you'll always hold that little angel close to your heart, but know I am praying for you and dh that you will find the emotionally strength to try once again.

jen- I hope that your ultrasound goes well and it shows that the lining gets thicker!! Thinking of you!

sunshine and stars- I am so sorry... I know that words cant make this any better but please know that I am thinking of you and your DH.... I have you in my thoughts and prayers and please know that we are here for you if you ever just want to let it out! Please take care of yourself!!

Ninde - I am so sorry. I know how you feel. It is very hard. And don't worry about feeling happy for others. It comes back after a while. We are only human. I felt the same way for a while.

Sunshine and stars- so sorry. That's exactly what happened to me this summer. It took a while to get over it but I am getting ready for another cycle as soon as my AF shows up.

Everyone else - so many. bFPs on this board. That's exiting! WE - congratulations! Can't wait for your beta tomorrow! This board is on a streak of luck!

aFM, I got a bit of good news. It looks like my embryologist and my doc confurred and decided that I don't have to skip a cycle. So I can start on BCPs right after my next AF. But it's been 11 days since my beta went to zero and still no AF. I was told it can take another couple of weeks. I've bben spotting and occasional cramping but no AF. That's ok work has been crazy busy that I haven't been as anxious to start. The timing might be good actually because December is slow for us and that's when I'll be transferring. So it will work out good hopefully.

I had the most amazing dream last night, I dreamt that I was in church holding a baby in my arms and I took off her little hat and saw the most beautiful fuzz of blond hair. :D Before I knew it she was running up several flights of stairs and I kept thinking wow she's only 3 months old and can already run! lol weird I know but I didn't want to wake up! Maybe this was God's way of telling us we have to climb higher, but a child is in our future. It's certainly worth the climb knowing this. I really needed this reminder because just the other night I prayed for God to help me accept things the way they are so i can move on, yet when I talked to my MIL (whom I'm very close to) she agreed that later on I would of regretted not giving this our all. So many of you reading this tonight have given me the strength to keep going and I want to thank you for that. :) Without you and my family, I would have stopped trying for a family a long time ago. My husband doesn't even mind me getting on here because he knows we all need someone who truly understands this journey just as you do.

Thanks We, I cannot wait to hear about your lab results on Monday! I'll post my thyroid levels on Wednesday but tomorrow since I have a 2.5 hour commute to my clinic in Gulf Breeze, I figured I would make the most of it and have lunch with an old friend from my previous job at the bank. She moved to Ft. Walton, FL and it will be much fun catching up with her.

Ninde, the way you feel right now is quite normal, but you know you are family here and with everything going on, come talk to us. It takes time to get back on your feet but once you do I will be cheering your next cycle on!

Anton, I found your quotes very inspirational.That's fabulous news on the job interview, sounds like it would be a good match! What all would it entail, as the job description? I'm just so excited for you! Btw I always make a sphaghetti dinner when AnnaBelle comes over, she loves it! Need to post a pix of her halloween costume, she's going japanesse this year!

Lyd10, December sounds great, I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the upcoming holidays!

Ladies this board moves so fast that I'm unable to see all the personals on one page but know I'm going back and reading previous ones and thinking of you!

Gina-thank you so much. I couldn't sleep and I was reading your post wanting feedback about Shady Grove. I posted a link for you walker that would allow you to search their success rates. Did you see that post and have you been able to get the information you were looking for? I am so nervous today. I will be going for my Beta at 8am and probably won't hear back until 2pm or so. I won't be posting any pic of my HPT. Turns out, I ran out of test. I guess that's fine since I'll know today either way. Thanks again for support.

Good morning,
It's 5:23am and I'm up again early unable to sleep. Urg... I'm scheduled for my Beta at 8am and will probably not hear back until about 2pm. I want to thank all of you for being such loving and caring friends. I know in my heart that God has a plan for each and everyone of us. A plan we may not quite understand yet. And as a part of his plan he has brought all of us together. Despite the reasons why we are all here, I am truly grateful for having bren given the opportunity to have each of you in my life. I have no words to express the gratitude I feel for what each of you has given to me. Please remember that you are all very special and very strong. You have all touched my heart and soul in a very special way. I am eternally grateful for the friendships I have made here. I know I could have never made it this far without each of you. You have all played a special roll in my life that has allowed me to keep moving forward and not give up. Thank you, thank you, thank you...
