Julia,
Being that the hpt was an off brand and it wasn't first morning pee I wouldn't rely on the accuracy. But I would purchase a First Response Pregnancy Test and try again tomorrow morning. When is your beta? My nurse told me the last time I was at the clinic that we shouldn't always rely on the accuracy of the hpt, she told me she has heard about patients' testing and give up, but later when they get the bloodwork back it's actually positive. We really need some good news on this board so I'm going to be praying for your BFP!


Ninde,
I see your point and this is what makes this board so great we each speak our minds. Sometimes we want to protect that person's emotions and what they are dealing with takes time to recover- some longer then others it always varies. But it's hard to know what might be not comforting to one, might help the next. With these mixed emotions we face when having something tragic happen there it a time and place for everything but for MANY it's comforting to know it's not over yet. Yet at that moment of any given tragedy I understand she/he needs time to grieve. At some point they are going to feel they need direction and our personal beliefs is what ultimately gets us through hardships. Thank you for your views and sharing your thoughts, and I appreciate you elaborating that this is not meant to be a controversal topic. I know you are only trying to help because it's hard not to care about each one of us. xoxo

Bodie,
I think your idea is great, and it could even be a best-seller so many ladies go through this. I've heard of some previous cycle buddies starting blogs and we touch on so many emotions here. I'm always looking for more successful stories and that's what keeps me coming back to check on everyone here.

Julia-I agree with Sunshine. Buy a bandname HPT and test tomorrow morning. I'll be praying fo your BFP.

Ninde-I love that your so protecting of everyone. Those are wonderful qualities of a great mother. People always tell me I'm like a mother hen. I guess that a positive thing :). I know you will make a wonderful mother someday.

Sunshine-I am glad that AF is here. I know it's bitter sweet but it will aloe you to move forward and put this cycle behind you. I know that moving forwards sounds like an impossible thing at the moment but as the days ad weeks go by your next steps and new path will become clearer. Time has a way of healing even the biggest of wounds. Sending you a big hug.

Blue & Bodie-thank you. Others have mentioned this but truly I am not always inspired to write. Kind of like today. I guess writers would call that writers block. Sometimes I find that my heart and soul just pour into what I write. I don't even really know if that's were it comes from but i am grateful for those moments because in those moments I am able to truly identify my feelings and move forward. I've thought of writing a book. Maybe short stories. That may be easier to accomplish. I've been at this for a year so I have plenty of my own stories that I could possibly combine. Some are hard to read. Those of when I experienced the two MC's are the hardest. But in looking back, I am truly stronger today. It's not the road I would have chosen but it's the hand I've been dealt and I've made the best of what I've been given. Life is amazing in a strange sort of way sometimes.

Blue & Amanda-I really hope that you feel better soon. Please know that I am always here for you.

Sending you all my love. I am actualy in a fitting room at the mall. Trying on some new clothes. Time to upgrade. Usually don't like to shope but today it feels good.

Good morning~

Neffi~ Your picture is adorable. I love it. I feel a connection with you because we both have a son and are trying for a second. Just curious... is your son a donor embryo or is he genetically yours? I only ask because you are open about using a donor embryo for the next round. Our son is genetically ours and I'm just thinking of different options for us. My friend is giving birth right now with a daughter who is a donor egg and her husband's sperm. She has been through a lot so I hope it goes well this morning.

Julia~Oh crap. I was just thinking we need some good news for a change. Damn. I was hoping for us both to get positive tests. I am so so sorry. This IVF stuff is the pits.

Amanda~so happy to hear about your mom. What a relief. My mom is getting her CA-125 (blood work for ovarian cancer) done next week and I'm hoping the number stays low. Another emotional roller coaster. Thinking of you.

Lyd~ I know we live close together. If by any chance you know my husband or me, please don't spread the word about donor eggs. I love that I can be completely honest on this forum and suddenly I got nervous when I blab and blab. I was thinking of you in the ER. I'm in Scripps La jolla's er all of the time. Were you there? How is your head?

Leora~~ where are you?

AFM~ bleeding and bad cramps. Ugh.

Julia-oh honey I am so sorry. I know this is a very scary time but bleeding is common and others in these boards have gone ahead and gotten their BFP's even with bleeding. Praying for you.

Jayne-sorry about your bad cramps. Hope you feel better physically and emotionally soon.

Amanda-I am so happy to hear that your mom is cancer free. I'll continue to pray for her recovery.

Gina-how are you doing?

Julia- I am thinking of you. Dont give up hope yet. Some people bled and still got a bfp. I am thinking of you. I hope that you are getting some rest. I know that its so hard. I am praying for you and thinking of you! I pray that you get your bfp!

AFM- I am relaxing and taking it easy waiting for DH to get home. I am waiting for monday and just praying that things go well. I hope that everyone is having a great weekend. I know that there has been heartache on here and I am thinking of you all!

Thank you all for addressing this. I'm so scared. I have horrible AF usually and this is not even close. I'm not cramping a badly as normal either. So I can still make it? DH is so devastated he came rushing home from work and I think I've only seen him cry once. He was sobbing. I'm so worried about him. I'm glad there's still hope. Im gonna stay in bed until church tomorrow and then back to bed until the beta.

I've thought about writing a book myself. I haven't begun IVF but just the journey of ttc for almost 12 years. I probably have around 10 notebooks starting from 2001. I wouldn't even know where to begin though.

We- Thank you. I'm doing okay. My Grandmother got to sit up in a chair for the first time in about 3 weeks. My mom hasn't been too thrilled with the Hospice she's in. They have to call them for the simplest things. They were told it wouldn't be like that so maybe that's how they are here or she wasn't told how it really is. We only had them for a few days with my Grandfather and they weren't there 24/7, he couldn't move also, so it was different. My Grandmother has been asking to go home which is sad. Hopefully when the end is really close, they will take her there and hopefully she'll still recognize it.

I haven't gone home yet....I feel horrible about it but if I do go I won't want to leave. So many things are happening here that after Thanksgiving I will and just praying she makes it until then. I went on the Ellen show online and trying to win a free flight home, so we can all go. I entered my story so we'll see what happens.

Julia-- sorry you are going through so much. I would take another HPT. I hope you get a BFP, when is your beta?

Jayne- Yes, my son is biologically ours, and a total miracle. AT this point, I don't care who my babies come from, I just want to be a mom to more than just me son. I feel strongly about siblings and feel my son deserves that in his life. If this and our adoption doesn't work out then we will look into foster to adopt....but that really scares me.

AFM-- just waiting, waiting, waiting. DH and I have a date night planned and Jack is going to spend the night at grandmas! start my meds next weekend!

Neffi~Yep. I definitely feel connected to you. We're in the same boat. I think siblings are so important and I don't really care anymore how we get them. When my mom had cancer, I wouldn't have survived without my sister's help. Are you thinking of doing donor embryo or donor eggs? I just want to do something that has a different outcome because I can't continue with all of these meds and continue with the negative results. I enjoy looking at my son and seeing my characteristics in him so it scares me a little to not feel as attached to the next one if they are not genetically mine. I guess I will have to trust that it will all be OK. Are you planning to tell everyone upfront?

Julia~oh my... made me so sad to think about your husband. The day I told my husband that I started to bleed and got another negative test, I could see his disappointment. It hurts me that I can't give him another child. He is such a great dad. I'm so sorry for both of you and I hope you get a surprise + HPT. That would be so nice.

Off to take a nap. It's raining so hard. Love it.
