I’m so sad that IUI didn’t work for any of us.
After I read all your messages, I started to doubt that this even works for anyone. (Actually, I’ve never even heard of it working for anyone, you only seem to hear of successful IFV’s).
But this made me realize that I think I’m spending too much time worrying for myself and everyone else going through this. I try to think positively, and I thought that getting on line, chatting with you guys, sharing what we’re going through, trying to give encouragement (and feel encouragement), would help me through this difficult and emotional process. However, I think that this is just making me think and focus on all the negative aspects. I am able to stay positive a lot of the time, and it is extremely helpful to share experiences, but I also think it causes stress, especially if it’s not working for any of us!
Essentially, I’m worried that I may be inadvertently perpetuating the health problems in my body by focusing on it so much.
I think I’m going to try very very very hard to start thinking more positively. Not just “it will work this time” but more like “when the baby comes this is what I’m going to do.” I really want to try and think good and positive and definite. Probably a little corny, but I’m willing to try anything at this point.
Thank all of you so much for your encouragement through all of this. I hope with all my heart that all of you get your beautiful babies. I’ll probably log on a couple more times this week, then I’m going to try and stay away (which will be very difficult). I want to leave the worrying about what to do next to my doctor.
I hope I didn’t offend anyone by this. I know it sounds a bit selfish, but maybe that’s what we all need right now.
Best of luck to all of you!!!!
