Blueeyedreamer-- I am so sorry! I was so shocked when I read your post. Please take time to heal with DH. Hope to hear from you soon.

Blessed- YAY for a + test! I was really hoping to see that from you. Are you 8dp5dt?

We-- can you update me to fet on 12/9-- thanks!

Samantha-- dont worry about the cramps, its very normal. Have you POAS?

AFM-- Longest AF of my life...8 days with the spotting....makes me think that my 9.1 lining was still there and they just couldn't see it. Got my Viagra and Estrace and will start that on the 19th. Lining check on the 28th. Transfer on Dec 9th. If all goes according to plan! hopefully Thanksgiving will make this next 4 weeks fly by. I also have a trip to NYC planned on the 7th so that helps too!

Lyd: I laughed so hard about you cancelling your appointment and going to the mall.

Kerpupples: that sounds to be a very thorough trial. Do you think the ohs is totally gone?

Bodie: I had the same reaction when it happened to me and to make it weirder it was really intense!

Neffi: oh what an amazing photo. All those beautiful curls jack has!

Kiminish: thanks, im doing well :-) incidentally, what's assisted hatching?how was the transfer?

Afm: rained alot here today but it was a nice day. Im teaching all day tomorrow and then Sunday is my day off the food program me, I sooo need sugar!!

Ninde- Thanks for asking :) I'm doing okay, hanging in there. My Grandmother keeps saying she's tired of her old body and ready for a new one. They say she's so soft spoken etc...she's still eating and solids and will ask for food when she gets hungry. She said someones having a party...My mom said, well Michael (DS) is turning 12. She wants to send him money.

It really bothers me (I told my Mom today) that the Doctors never did a biopsy to test for cancer. I'm guessing by the symptoms and the blood when she goes to the bathroom that it is. However, they can't tell how bad or when it would be over. I think when she passes it will be from the fluid caused my her congestive heart failure. If they treated that then maybe should could live with the cancer for a while longer. Hopefully they know what they are doing.

I'm really having issues with not doing IVF for another several months but because of money I can't change it so I wish I could let it go, but I can't. It gives me anxiety thinking about the wait. Soon I'll get something to fix that.

blueeyeddreamer- Im so sorry to hear about your news...I cant imagine how dishearting it is! I want to say a few words, and I say these things again not knowing the agony you feel but as a Christan women I feel I should at least try... :( Ive always been told that God knows our needs before we do...even when it feels as though His choices are unfair and cruel. There is a plan beyond our knowledge and we must somehow find the ability to trust His will and believe that there is a plan.

I truly believe that when God makes these hard fates for us, He feels the pain and hurts for us as well for the Lord never wishes to hurt us on purpose and bring us down...but by His will and destiny we must face all the adversities in order to reach our true fate that He has designed for us.

I ask myself the "whys" of life all the time, why do children have cancer...why do women like us fight for a baby when other women seem to get pregnant so easily (some women, not even needing to...) I wish God would give me the answers but I know Im not meant to know...my faith is what He wishes from me...not my questions.

Please dont give up hope...I promise you that your life will make sense when you least expect it and one day you will understand why things happened the way they did...Keep the faith girl!

Take time to heal and please know we are all here for you!

I hope im not going to upset anyone by saying this and Samantha - I know you were trying to help blue but i find it hard to accept that any of this is Gods plan and even if it is I think what's needed now is for blue to be able to grieve in the way she needs to. And if that means not seeing any of God's plan then so be it. Im sorry blue - I dont mean to speak for you and im not trying to but I just cant believe the god I believe in sanctions any of this.

As i said, im sorry if I've upset anyone but i feel really strongly that compassion is needed now

Blueeye-- oh my gosh...... this is so unfair and honestly I fear the exact thing happening to me. Did they diagnose it as a blighted ovum? How many weeks are you? My RE said that most HB's can't be seen until 7 weeks. I have never had this happen to me but I know plenty of people that have and it's the most awful and devistating thing you can experience in IVF. I wish I could give you a huge hug right now. Life isn't fair, it's simply not. We all deserve out babies and why the hell do we have to fight so hard for it?????? Blue- it's probably going to take a while for you to grieve but please don't give up hope. I have seen so many miracles that I know there is hope for all of us. Much love to you and DH.

AFM- I am cramping pretty bad today, mostly in my back. Everything I read says it's normal but honestly I just have a feeling something isn't right. UGH... I wish I could be positive but I just cant. To add insult to injury SIL posted her U/S picture on FB today. She basically said 'try #3 hope it's a girl'... really? I would be glad for just a damn baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! People really piss me off, today I am angry and mad about IF and how many people have to f**king suffer. I feel very alone in this process honestly. I try to share how I am feeling and it's just not heard. (not on here). Anyway, this day just sucks.
I am so sad for the news on the board this week...

Ninde- No I don't mind you speaking out. It's ok. I appreciate you protecting me and speaking out about ways of compassion.

I don't take offense at anyone who is trying to help comfort me even if it is something I don't believe in. I think it is all in good faith and with the intent of compassion. I won't get into the religion debate, but I appreciate all the thoughts that come my way. I do understand that some people do get offended by it.

I find that right now I am very, very sad and heartbroken. But mostly I feel angry. IVF is a grueling process before even getting to the testing time. Then we get thrown on this ridiculous roller coaster of waiting for blood tests, getting hopeful, then waiting more. The blow is so much harder after going through this. I have a killer headache, want to vomit, and am pissed at the world. But I am EXTREMELY grateful to you wonderful women to share in this journey. It is something that only someone who has experienced it can understand.

If your faith in God's plan helps you through, great. You are welcome to share it and pray to your heart's content. It's my faith in my friends, family, and knowing that I am a good person that gets me through it. I have done nothing to be punished and can't buy into the fact that a God is deciding that I need to hurt this much even if it isn't punishment.

Best of luck to all of us. I'll stick around and be a part of the group even though I have no idea what the plan is for the future. We have one frozen embryo left.

Jenmink- She didn't specifically say blighted ovum, but I think that is what it is when the sacs are empty. She also said they didn't measure like they should either. Regardless of whether the heartbeat is seen, there should be something visible like a yolk sac or fetal pole. There was nothing. They looked like big black holes. They weren't large either. They were only 8mm and 4mm. Way smaller than they should be.
