Tawny- That's so awesome that you have flexibility with work to cycle over the holidays...I'm also praying you will be bringing home a Christmas miracle.

Thanks Ladies, I'm a bit over-anxious tonight just wishing I didn't have to face tomorrow. I don't have an cramping or signs of AF but then again the bcp has most likely thrown my cycle off. Well I will try to post as soon as I have internet tomorrow especially if it's good news. Sending out much Love- Christy

Ladies, woke up at 3:15 and poas-- negative:( Texted everyone I personally knew at 3:30 asking them to pray for strength today. Cried so much into my pillow but dh never knew, it would only make him sad and today is his job interview for the job up in Raleigh NC. I would stay here and continue IVF with Attain in Florida since the contract is not negotiable, but it makes me so disappointed that I'm stuck here with NO family down here but Michael. Life is so unfair 99.9% of the time but I'm not throwing a pity party..Instead I've decided this Black Friday I'm camping out at WalMart to steal us a baby!

My next cycle will be in late Jan, but I will remain here throughout the holidays cheering each of you ladies on.

Christy - I am so sorry! But I am glad you have 5 more tries. So sorry you may have to stay back to do it by yourself. Unexplained diagnosis is the worst. Not knowing why it is not working sucks. I am sorry!

Maria- It was nice having you there at 3:15 this morning, I later thought what other crazy person would be up at the weee hours of the morning but I know with the girls you don't get much sleep so you chimed in at the perfect time.

Anton- You've always brightened my day especially today what a pleasant surprise!! You sure have been MISSED by so many of us, but seeing your post lets me know even when you aren't able to post you still read and know what's going on. Are you still enjoying your new job? How is that new puppy and I need lots of updates. I told Maria I'll make a virtual apple pie and we can all sit around here and catch up. I've missed you! Ok going back to my news, I just got a callback from my doctor who did the transfer and he went on and said the embryos looked beautiful but it's hard to know how good. We talked about the 3 frosties, I asked if we could skip the FET and just go with another fresh to bank the embryos for a possible sibbling since IVF ATTAIN provides us with 6 tries. But he said he believes I would have to go through the FET to see if any that I already have frozen might take. He tried to give me hope and said although we put back 2 on my last transfer we have 3 that were frozen and the frozen ones might just be the ticket, the better quality ones. I asked when could we go in for the next IVF, he said they are updating their equipment so the next cycle would be at the end of January, perfect for me since the holidays are already crazy enough. I thought this year I wouldn't worry with a tree or presents I'm really not in the mood but it's so hard not buying gifts for my 9 nieces and nephews who I don't get to see but once a year since we live out of state. Michael has a skype job interview this afternoon with a college up in N.C. and later this week he is placing his application at another institution up in Birmingham, AL (very close to my family.) So ya'll know what I'm reallly really hoping for! As for the IVF goes- I'm still concerned about my FSH levels, my thyroid in particular. The doctor I just got off the phone with is coordinating a time for Michael and I to speak with our RE. It would be good if I can jot down these kind of questions...But I need to know what to expect with a FET, what is the process really like in comparison to a fresh? Any thoughts on what I need to ask to prepare for my next cycle?

As always Ladies, Thank you for pouring out so much support!

Christy-I am so sorry you had such disappointing news today. I really felt for you. However your doctor sounds very encouraging and I believe FET's are often very successful.There is far less stress and procedure for the woman and that can only be a good thing. I am sure your time will come. How can it fail when there are so many prayers and good wishes going your way.
Hopefully there will be a good outcome to your husband's interviews.
Sincerely
Isobel xx

Pocos- I am SO sorry I didn't mean to be rude and not respond earlier, I've been so overwhelmed today but I truly lose sight of what's important sometimes and it's the support and everyone's prayers that keeps one going. I hope you are doing better, I know these emotions right now are the hardest but it's ok to get mad and throw things, just make sure dh isn't in the room. I have a good friend who remind me tonight it's not about us being in control, we can try to be but when it comes down to it we really don't have control and we deserve to have peace, our faith in God alone will take us so much further. It's ok to have all these emotions and I know this journey has been tough but when we look at the possibilities there is no turning back. I pray 2013 will bring us brand new hope, faith and our belief that all things are possible through HIm.
Thank you for asking too, dh did have a good interview, it was long he said (as opposed to the last college who only asked him one question.) lol but anyway we will see what happens as for now it's completely out of our hands. Sometime December he's planning to talk with the College President to see if he might change his mind and renew his contract so we can stay here. I told him to go talk to him before Christmas maybe he will be in a giving mood?...we shall see how that goes.
What are your next steps? Our RE is scheduling a phone consultation with us next week, we do have 3 frosties and I hear FETs are less stressful but I need to take a break right now. So it will be at least around Jan before we cycle again.xxxx

Isobel- Thank you for your warm and comforting words. Throughout this journey we fall so many times before we really learn who we need to be leaning on. Some things are COMLPETELY out of anyone's control. How is your daughter's friend? Let her know we are thinking about her too. xxxx

Kynlee- So glad I called you tonight, you restored my faith and I read the chapter in Galatians you shared with me over the phone. "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." I hope all goes well with the restoration of your house, you know dh will bring in a bigger crew if he has to. Enjoy every moment of this upcoming holiday season too. xxxx

wishful27- Crash as much as you want...As you know this board has given so much support and you ladies understand how much we need it more now then ever, so I appreciate your encouragement tonight.xxxx

Lynd- Oh we're been through so much over the last few years together, I won't ever take you for granted. It's not over by far my friend. xxxx

Maria- Thanks again for the much needed encouragement I kept reading what you texted me over and over because it meant so much to me, however I didn't get to respond back to the very last text. So true, sometimes we have more questions then the doctor can answer but I must not lose faith and trust in the one person who matters most. xxxx

AFM: What a day, it's taken an emotional toll on me, but I will not give up and those who are here with me I won't let you give up either, that's my promise. I love each one of you!
