Margi- I appreciate you and all my former cycle buddies who stop by to cheer me on, it really means so much to me. I wouldn't make it without you ladies!

AFM: The aftermath of 11/15 feels like dooms day over here. I know it's part of the process but I hate feeling this way. I've decided to take all of my frustration and anger out on my house though and rant and rage over this filthy place with scrubbing and cleaning the rest of this morning--once I have some breakfast and check in with my girls first. Today at work we are celebrating my co-manager's birthday and I woke this morning thinking about Thanksgiving...How although we don't have family down here and I cook a turkey every year for some neighbors to come over. I'm really missing sweet Annabelle maybe she'll be home next week. As for Christmas I'm thinking giftcards this year but maybe Annabelle will help me put up the tree next week. I'll need to take some pictures of the house to get ready for possibly putting it on the market if we decide to move to NC (after my treatment) next year, but I really want to tell dh to find something closer yet I realize with his profession it's tough to find local jobs. *Sometimes you have to take whatever comes your way. Hopefully in December when he goes to talk with his current college President none of this will matter but it's tough to prepare for the unknown. All we can do is place everything in God's hands...I know I should do is try to relax and prepare for my next cycle but I'm always looking ahead that's my biggest weakness. I cannot relax because I'm so overwhelmed with this uncertainty.

Christy- Thinking of you this morning, I know its a tough rollercoaster... I am glad you are not giving up, remember mine was a frozen cycle and it worked for me I sometimes think all the things you go through with a fresh sometimes makes our bodys confused with all the proding, so I think a frozen cycle is a great plan... Keep looking to God for comfort, he has helped me through 3 tough years of IVF. Call me this weekend... xxx

Thanks Kynlee, I also got your email too. :D I heard over the radio on my way home from the clinic yesterday "You Lift Me Up" and I thought of you. I need to get back into devotion time, maybe each day we can post scripture here if nobody minds (if anyone WHO is reading does mind please message me now). Anyway I have faith in these frosties I shouldn't decline a FET cycle and move on to a FRESH when all I really want is one healthy baby. I need to stop worrying about the sibblings and if it comes down to it we can always look into adoption. Yes it's a warped rollercoaster, but I'm very thankful I have you ladies here!

Sunshine – I am glad your husband had a good interview, I really hope he gets the job!
I really hope 2013 brings us our BFPs ! We’ll meet with the RE Dec 6 to see what he suggests. FETs are definitely less stressful and also seem to be more successful! I really thinkg its going to work for you next time!
I understand how you feel about the uncertainty, that’s what kills me too. Sometimes I wonder if this will ever work for me.
I like the idea of the scriptures! How was this devotion time you guys did? I’d like to participate :D

Paulyholly- So glad to hear from you, and I know all the bleeding has been tramuatic. Whatever that does happen we will always be here for you no matter what, but I know that strong desire of only wanting to have to go through IVF just one time. Keep me posted on how you are doing, it's not over until the big fat beta lady sings.

AFM: Belly is on fire, I feel AF coming soon. Chocolate is calling my name...But I need to be thinking about a turkey. What's everybody's plans for Thanksgiving? Hmmmm Who's cooking???

Sunshine- I'm so sorry that this cycle did not give you your BFP. Our first Attain cycle was a BFN too. As frustrating as that was, we tried to think that meant we got our money's worth! As far as whether or not you have to do an FET before you move on to another fresh cycle, we did not have to do the FET. We did forfeit 1 FET though. Our RE had to call Attain and get approval. Just something to think about... I do think FET's are much easier on you. My twins are from an FET. :D

Praying for all of you ladies!

Wishingandhoping, I will be staying in touch with you I certainly hope if you can make it through the next year with me? Twins from a FET that is so amazingly awesome! Our consultation should be sometime in December, once dh gets out for the holidays. I need to call and get that set up. I appreciate you sticking around here, it's been fun to find so many former buddies on fb but at the same time this board wouldn't exist without people like you. :D

Pocos, I'm so happy we started the devotion forum with Kynlee. We both have so much going on right now and God will help us weather this storm. I did decide it would be to everyone's interest not to have it here because I wanted to respect the diversity of religion from all around the world.

AFM: Day 2 of "Ruby Falls", yet trying to motivate myself to tackle Mt. Laundry..and catch up on housework, I seriously need a vacation before Black Friday.

Crashing for Sunshine, so sorry to hear about your cycle. I was checking in here every now and then just to see how things were going with you and a few others. I will continue to pray for a good FET in the new year. Hugs to you and your family.

Thank you Kat, I too still check on the boards everyday even though I'm not posting much right now. Just waiting to cheer some girls on however it's been relatively quiet around here. I appreciate you being there for us, it really means so much and nope It's certainly not over yet! :D :D

Hi Ladies!!

Its been a long time since Ive been on these boards! Periodically I would check posts and follow a few old cycle buddies and some of you have become parents and I couldnt be happier for you all!

I honestly thought I was done with my IVF journey. 3 failed cycles was enough for me! My husband and I decided to get another opinion and I read about this doctor here in NJ named Dr Check who specializes in women who have decreased reserve or "poor resonders" even reversing menopause! He told me he would do a VERY LOW stim since my previous RE pumped me with super high doses of meds and he feels that basically ruins my eggs?? IDK guess im hoping he is right! :D So my hubby is getting an updated SA this week....I had preliminary u/s and bloodwork along with all my baseline bw and meds will be on there way soon. I am SUPER nervous about this cycle.

He put me on estradiol 2mg now until I start AF So I could be starting stims this upcoming week.

I look forward to cycling with you girls and will try to update myself on who is where in there cycles! I could potentially have ET mid Dec!!!!!!!!!!!!!
