Christy, I'm so sorry this is happening. This will be a bump in the road but you will make it through. I have faith. Best wishes to you and your dh. I hope he finds a job that is more fulfilling and better than what he had. I know it sounds cliche and probably a bit trite, but it will get better.

Sunshine, I know I don't post much here anymore but I do keep up with you all. I can't believe all this is happening to you. Your faith in God will guide you to the right path, place your faith in him and stay stong. I will pray for you and your DH, hopefully he will find something soon and maybe even something better (you never know).

Sunshine - Im sorry to hear about your situation. If you take on full time, can DH look for a job close to your current location?

WeHaveHope - so happy for you and seeing two HBs!!! Praying for a smooth pregnancy for you!

Leora - When do you stop BCP and are you starting injectibles right after? We may be on a similliar schedule this time around since I started the injectibles on Sunday.

Christy: oh my dear Im so sorry. It sounds absolutely crushing what has happened and that's its a fight to remain strong. I know you were so excited to be starting treatment next month and how dissapointing it is that you cant with all the factors involved. You have had a dreadful shock and whilst its probably the last thing you might consider, could you possibly hold off making a decision on everything even for a few days? The only reason I say that is because with the shock your brain will go into catastrophe mood (comp,etely underatandably) and you wont be able to think in a creative way for solutions.

I really am very sorry though for the distress this is causing you. I will hold you both in my thoughts and prayers

Christy - Stay in prayer and remember that God is in control. I know your faith will sustain you. As hard as this is, find strength in knowing that God is by your side in all things. This too shall pass and you will have the family you deserve. Sending tons of hugs.

Globetrotter - That is awesome!!! It means your are a great responder and will get tons of Eggies hopefully. Just be aware of possible OHSS. That is why your dose was cut in half. Just keep trucking along.

Christy, I'm so sorry. With any luck this will just open a door for a new and better job opportunity for DH. Who knows, you may not even need to wait that long to cycle. In any case, I think the full time position at work will at least help occupy you and take your mind off things some. Wishing you and DH all the best.

Crashing for Sunshine-

OH Christy I am so sorry this is happening to you!to your DH! :shock: :( My DH is watcing a soccer game right now and I felt the 'need' to check the board and I saw that everyone was saying how sorry they were for you and so I HAD TO go back a page.. or two to check your post! Even though not a day passes without thinking of all of you girls, I don't check the board everyday now. I am on 'IVF board rehab' as I call it...but I had to crash in for you!

This is so unfair happening but especially during this time of your life. I can totally relate to what you and your DH are going through. As you already know, while on therapy for my 3rd IVF and only a week away from my ET I got let off from my job (I too got a redundancy letter) where I have been working for 7 years. And while they knew I was on my 3rd ivf. I can assure you that THAT was the worst period of my life! I cried and cried and cried from morning till evening for days and I couldn’t believe THAT was happening to me. I felt like I lost the ground under my feet and if it wasn’t for my DH, the love of my life, my saviour, I would definitely be locked somewhere dark and creepy by now!

I know how shocking this must be but you need to suck it all in and be there for your DH. And I know how much you love each other and that you would do anything for him. So this is your call right now to be there one more time honey. This is important. You can't let him go down with this. You need to be his rock during this period until he finds a new job. What was his job if you don’t mind me asking? You can vent on the board as much as you like, we will support you, but at home, you need to support your DH. I know you will!

Personally, it was by choice for me to sit for a year after I got the redundancy letter and concentrate on IVF and the making of our family. My DH insisted that a year for me to rest from all of the BFN’s and the loss of my job that cost me a lot it was the best thing to do and that my physical and mental health comes first than any job. So a year and a half later and 4 more IVF cycles (still no baby) July 2011 was our last failed attempt for a baby.

Since we paid all IVF’s from our pockets and we have used the money I got from my job for a couple of IVF’s and ever since September I got back on the job search. Thing is, for my bad luck as you know, this year is the worse ever recession and from 0.05% unemployment we now have reached almost 9% maybe 10% as we speak! More than 30.000 people, including myself we are unemployed and for a small country of population 750.000 this is a huge thing! Just imagine that for a position there are 1.000 candidates! Can you imagine! There are companies that don’t even bother considering screening all those applications. and even though I make an ideal candidate to a number of jobs, they may not even see my CV.. Even the jobs that don’t apply for my qualifications but I wouldn’t mind considering them until I find THE job, e.g waitress, sales person at a shop, secretary etc don’t exist! can you believe that! they find so easy these jobs and there is never a vacancy in the newspaper! And on top, things/hiring procedures are moving SO SLOW it can drive you mad! Right now I am waiting for that second interview for this job (they told me I made it to the second interview -8 people incl. me) most probably by the end of this week I will know when to go. I am keeping everything crossed to get this job so we can continue with our IVF journey asap!

Be strong honey and better days are coming! I know it’s easier said than done but trust me! GOOD DAYS ARE COMING! Keep up that beautiful positive spirit of yours and like your signature name, the sunshine will come into your life again soon!! I will pray that your DH finds a job soon! Try not to make any harsh decisions regarding your planned IVF cycle try and stay calm and I am sure you will work something out. Maybe ask for a delayed payment to the IVF attain programme. Who knows! Maybe they offer this help to the couples needed. Just be honest with them about the situation and use your negotiation/sales skills to persuade them give you a delay payment so that you don’t miss your cycle in May. There are ways! You will find the way! This is not the end of the road for you BY FAR! Tomorrow is another day with bran new hope!
My prayers are with you my friend and I have a feeling that you guys will make it! It will be tough for a while but you will make it! That is a guarantee!

My love and kisses to ALL the ladies of the board! And even though I don’t post much, you are all in my thoughts and prayers EVERYDAY! Literally not a day passes without thinking of you guys! I speak with love about your journey's to my friends and I consider you all my 2nd family and I feel pain when you do and I am happy when you are! All of you girls together with my buddies from the PAT board give me the strength to look forward to my next IVF! I just hope that is going to be soon and its going to be a successful one!

Sorry for the long post!...but you know me by now, when I write, I write a novel! :lol: :mrgreen:

Baby dust to us all!and lots of sticky vibes to the ones on the 2ww! I can't wait to celebrate your BFP's with you! :mrgreen: :D

Sunshine - I am keeping you and your family in prayer that everything will work out for the best.. It doesn't look like it right now but just have faith that everything happens for a reason and something even better will come along.

Babysoft - So exciting to see the high BETA... Big Congrats!!

Anton - amazing words and nicely said.. This is hard enough but someone thinks we are ready for more.. just need to go with it and look we are still here for a reason!! Best wishes to you and all you do!

LYD10 - Those test are always scary so glad everything looks good!!! Congrats -!

Julia - Its almost Friday!!

Ninde - How's it going? Are you still on bedrest or moving around. I stood in bed the day of transfer and 5 full days after!

AFM- I did something sooo stupid yesterday.. (Not even morning pee...6dpt5dt ) came home from work and got a burst of courage and tested on the digital EPT test - which now reading blogs those are the ones that take longer to get a positive response.. So yes it was NOT Pregnant . I decided I am done with the sticks and just going to leave it in god's hands. If it is meant to be then my baby or babies will be there if not then we try and try again. My husband is really an amazing man and he very good to me. I feel blessed to him with me in this journey. 3 days & counting!!
Good Luck to ALL!

Sorry, crashing guys. I do like to keep up with you all though.

Lyd, those numbers are very good. It is not a guarantee but probably as close as you will get with amnio. (Even amnio is not 100%.) Although, you should still discuss it with your ob, of course. I had a 1/11 chance of a chromosomal abnormality with my second son (TRAP sequence pregnancies have a 9% chance of an abnormality). However, mine still came back negative. Your chances are less than a half of a percent.

Babysoft, I'm thinking twins or more! Although, you never know.

Cyn22: At 10dp5dt I got a very faint positive. I even had twins (identical, one did not survive). You did test too early. Hoping you get a nice surprise on your beta day.
