Blessed - Like others have said, please do not give up hope yet! You never know so just try and be patient until your next blood test...

Julia, sorry to hear about your numbers... You never know what could happen though, like a late implantation or something. How long have you been at this now?

Becca- Good luck tomorrow. Hope you see a high Beta!!

We, I'm sorry for the loss of your DS father. Prayers going out for you and your family.

Maria - i am so sorry. what aweful news. i am really sorry.

blessed - 40 is not bad - it could still go up for sure.

Julia - i am sorry.

Leora - i am so sorry you were feeling crappy the other day. and i am glad you are feeling a bit better today. and i really hope the upcoming FET will work for you against all odds!!!

fruit - good to hear from another ol' timer :) i'll "see" you on here this winter.

AFM - not much. my head still hurts from hitting it on a metal box and getting staples in my scalp. and i am feeling very depressed for some reason. this AF has been brutal on me emotionally speaking. i am sick of work and sick of everything. and my head hurts. i am ready for holidays. for retirement actually - the way i am feeling today. i just want to do yoga and go to my spin classes and take long walks. and not have to sit in front of computer day in and day out.

Hello ladies, this is not a good day for the board

Maria: im so sorry - I hadn't checked online earlier and so didnt see your post and so my skype message must have looked so inappropriate. As i said to you im so so sorry, there are no words. You are one of the kindest women I know and i cant imagine how painful this is for you as you try to protect your son. This is shocking shocking news for you. I will pray hard and if there is anything I can do please please let me know x

Leora: I found ps I love you definately different! I read it on the plane to new York three years ago. It was really a silly book for me to read then as my best friend, kieran, had died only three weeks previously. I literally sobbed my way through it so im a bad judge!! I love your blinkie!!

Fruit: lovely to hear from you :D I will probably be cycling in jan/feb too

Blue: seriously? You must have been fit to be tied!! That is really awful. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow

Christy: wow that's expensive. Our cost per ivf is €5k which is about US dollars 7,500 but we dont have any scheme to reclaim any of it and no insurance will cover it.

Kerpupples: that's great af has arrived. I wish mine would!

Blessed: I really hope your number doubles and I know is low but its a positive and if it doubles then that's a really good sign. Im sending you ultra doubling vibes. Is your beta on wed?and you are not moaning about something stupid. Thisnisnreally important x

Rose: believe me when i say that walking downstairs is almost impossible!!!this is a rough day for you too, im so sorry.

Becca: good luck tomorrow!!

Lyd: ouch that sounds like a bad day for you, I have heard that the first af after&c is very tough physically and emotionally. Can you get to a yoga class?

Julia: oh im sorry, this has been so difficult for you since sat. Is your husband home with you? When is your next beta? Im praying hard for you?

Afm: im so sorry to hear all the sad sad news today. I dont know how we get through this rollercoaster

WOW what a crappy day on the board! I'm so sorry to all that got news that they didn't want today!

We-- I am so sorry to hear about your sons father! I am thinking of all of you!

AFM-- the last birthmom that changed her mind on us two days before the baby was born contacted me today and said she is thinking now that the adoption may be the best thing, but she's not sure. She is trying to torture me! I have already been heartbroken by them once....the baby is about 10 weeks old now. The problem is, she is 18 and I think she wants a situation that is more co-parenting than adoption....UGH....I cannot handle this emotionally. I know I shouldn't even think that this could work out. Anyway, she is talking to a counselor and then she will let me know. I'm not holding my breath.

Maria - I am so sorry about your son's father. What a terrible thing for him to have to deal with.

Blessed - don't give up, 40 is ok and I think it's more important that it goes up appropriately. I'll be hoping for a higher number on Wednesday for you.

Julia - so sorry things did not work out this time. Hugs.

Since we have some true blood fans, has anyone seen vampire diaries? I'd take Damon over Eric any day. the other day they had a thing on the radio about your fantasy celebrity threesome. Damon from Vampire Diaries and Eric from True Blood would definitely be mine.

AFM next ultrasound is Wednesday so hope I still have good news to report back to everyone

Oh Maria,
I am so sorry to hear about this tragedy...For your son, I know how it feels lossing a daddy and it's never easy to let go. I really feel in some ways we never do let go, we hold onto those memories for the rest of our lifes. My aunt passed around a container of my daddy's watches and my brothers and I got to select our favorite one. But it's more about the precious moments we had together more then anything at all. Everyone of us grieves in a different way, it's going to take time for everything to settle down, but right now hold your son and remind him how much his daddy loved him. My heart certainly breaks for your family and I will certainly keep you all in my prayers.
With Much Love,
Christy

What a horrific day on the board and I wanted to send some flowers to maybe uplift our moods. I was watching Desperate Housewifes last night and funny how things pop into my head but during commercials I saw that Publix is promoting their floral dept with flowers guaranteed to last 7 days AND brighten your whole week! So Maria if you live anywhere near Publix I want you to bring home a bouquet- something beautiful in the fall colors and know we are thinking of you!

I'm a little spellbound from the conference call my dh this afternoon with our RE. I wasn't able to join but he recorded it for me and I got to hear it when I got home...Our doctor thinks we should try one more IUI. Said I stimulated well and my estrogen levels were in the 600s with the 2 follicles we had. Said he thinks it's falling more on the sperm mobility being 25% and even after the wash and spin- it was better, but needs to show significant improvement. Outside of eatting healthy, exercising and taking his vitamins as he already does, I'm not sure of what else he can do... Our RE mentioned antioxidents can anyone elaborate on that? Thanks a million and I'll be back for personals in a bit. :D Christy

Pycnogenol, 200 mg a day. Our re reconended this and it helped greatly! You can get them at vitamin shoppe but they're a bit pricey... There are studies that show this helps...
