Hiya,
This is my third attempt at iui and today i got another horrible negative result. I feel so grim. My af hasn't started(probably the pessaries) so I was feeling a bit more positive and hoping. But no!
I hate test day! It's been so awful up to now all I want to do is cry! The thought of more tablets and jabs and trips to the clinic is unbearable. I feel worn out!
We're looking at having a break which should do us both good. DH is finding it all tough going too.
Sorry to moan!
Much love. Mel

Hi Mel,

So very sorry it didn't work for you this month.
Sending you a huge ^group^.

A break sounds a good idea. We all need time out from time to time from the rollercoaster ride of IF.

Don't worry about moaning as we all need to do that as well.

Take care of yourself and your DH,
Luv

Hi Girls

Please give me some advice. After 2 failed IVF attempts and 1 failed FET three days ago, where do you find the strength to carry on?
We have 2 frosties left and that is our lot.
My situation is that we have no more money left ( still in debt for the last one), and I am too old to egg-share.
Should I take a break and then have the two thawed out( knowing that I could lose both of them), or do I carry on now and then accept that the journey is over?
At the moment I can't think straight and I'm blinded by the fact that I want to keep going regardless, However, my partner is the sensible one and has said that we just cannot afford any more. I can't seem to let it go.
When you want something so badly, you just have to keep at it.
Please help?

Love Barbs xxxxxxxx

Hi

Mel, Barbs, Cat sorry to read all your news......... it's so hard to pick yourself back up.....

Barbs - somehow you do find the strength to carry on even if you feel negative about the whole thing now. I know that after all our history (see footnote) that this time it hit me even harder and I'm now just beginning to bounce back properly but it's taken me much much longer this time as I was so convinced.

I honestly don't know how you carry on but you just do. Last time I was so convinced that was it we wouldn't go through this again. However, a few weeks (7 ish) on I know we will go again but we are having 6 months off having us time and will start again in January. We need this time emotionally.

Anway that's enough of my waffle, big hugs to you all ^group^ ^group^ ^group^

Love Sue

Mel - So sorry to hear about result - life is truly awful to us when we try so hard for our dreams. You will get there. Sending you a hug.

Barbs - I know exactly how you feel, we have recently had our 3rd neg. We only have 1 frostie and are debating when to use it. We are also in debt and all I want to do is keep going. Better to be in debt for the next 5 yrs and try now than pay off debt, save up and find out in 3/4 years its not worth it. Well thats what I keep trying to tell Dp anyway.

Once you are on the rollercoaster it is so hard to get off, I am addicted to trying to have my baby.

Whatever you decide will be right for you when you are ready. Fine one to talk I am, should practice what I preach!!
Sending you hugs too and good luck with FET.

To anyone else who has recently had a neg - love to you also.

Loadsa love
Gwyn

Mel - I'm so sorry to hear about your result. I know how you are feeling. I think it is hard when you don't get your period and then get a negative result. My three attempts have all ended negative and I have not started bleeding until I have stopped the pessaries.
Just take some quality time out for yourself.

Gwyn - My feelings are identical to yours. I am addicted to having a baby and I am prepared to get into any amount of debt to achieve it. Unfortunately, my partner is more level headed and although he wants a baby as much as I do, he won't allow us to get into any more debt.
I'm so scared that once we use these two frosties up that is it and I just can't accept that. My life has been IVF for around 2 years now and even before that as I miscarried in April 1999 and was then on Clomid for around 6 months.
Sorry to waffle but it is comforting to know that I am not the only person who feels this way.

Lets hope we all get what we want next time round and
then at long last the rollercoaster will stop to let us get off.

Love to everyone.

Barbs xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
