@Calypso me too i wanted to be excited but af came 3 days early and now i have to do a mad dash to get my drugs tomorrow. Anyway hopefully this is the only kink in my journey this time. Fx for both of us. Good luck. I know Ive done all i can so its up to my angels and the universe now.
@Blossom74 dinner sounds fab ill be over in a jiffy haha
Wow this is going to be a huge month - so much going on & lots of BFPs to come I'm sure! I will be cheering along from the sidelines, as I'm just going with an 'a la naturelle' cycle again before I decide if I do that last OE cycle later this month. But as usual I will still be holding out hope that my miracle happens 😊
We just got back from the most magical weekend away. DH & I are happiest when we are with family & the kids. DSS & my niece & nephew stayed in our cabin & we had so much fun together, so many cuddles & laughs & five in the bed snuggles. We are clear on our path now, that we are diving head first into making our family & no more wasting time & mucking around. I'm healthy, we have the $, I have either my friend as a donor in June or DE in SA in Aug, so no matter what this year we are going to give it our all
you sound so happy, @Summer. it's really nice to hear. congrats on deciding on your path/plan
welcome back @amie999 & good luck for your cycle too
I'm sitting out this one & having a break till my af returns and will think about things over the next month or so. I think I need a bit longer to process everything
@Charlie74 I'm glad you've popped in and I totally understand what you're saying. Sometimes I think all the effort is just not worth it when in my gut I don't think it will ever work. I'm no longer as committed to ivf as I was before and kind of feel like I've already given up but just going through the final motions. How much longer do you have to take the lining drug?
@Charlie74 yes I've felt that way too, even going into this de pathway sometimes it just seems too hard. On some levels I wonder whether we should just give up and concentrate on living a fulfilling life just us. I wonder what kind of mother I would make given how much work I love doing and how it will affect our marriage, we never really fight but I imagine kids would change that to some degree. I know that they are normal thoughts for anyone thinking about parenthood. But I think I'm too scared of giving up and all that that would bring, and whether I would look back and regret it. I think that's what keeps me going is that I think I would regret not trying the de thing. But it does seem all too hard as well. I just hope our donor story is positive and short!!
I hope you can let some of the stress go when you go on your trip and really have a fabulous holiday.
We went to the meet up today for the EDA group and stayed an hour or so and it was nice to meet some of the others whom I've been chatting too. Sadly bongley was sick and didn't make it but maybe we will meet at another one.
Good luck to the girls starting this week xx
