When I was younger I played Nintendo... Mario saving the princees but ... you would get just inches away from the princess and .. boom you had to start all over again... through every grueling level ... never knowing if you would even get lose to the princess... dealing with al the variables along the way... IVF reminds me of this game ... Not much fun ...!! One day we will get the princess and just forget all the struggles to get there ...!!
CurksThat's a great analogy.

DesignerBugIt is true, when you do get the princess all that came before it becomes irrelevant. It's just the getting there that can be tough.

After 4 years TTC, 3 IVF attempts, PRIDE and a Homestudy, DH turns to me and says that he is not sure he wants to do this, he thinks maybe fatherhood is not in the cards for him but he has been scared to tell me because he knows motherhood is a must for me. Devastated.
MB123Give him time. This is just as emotional for them as it is for us. I know that after TTC for 7 years, I am emotionally tired of the roller coaster ride. The only thing that keeps me going is that my husband wants to be a father. If it wasn't for that...I think I would have given up a long time ago. He may just need time to regroup

AkristynI am so sorry to hear this but it is good that he told you. I wish you all the best with whatever you and your DH decide to do.

CurksThanks for your feedback. I am listening to all his thoughts and feelings and most importantly I am hearing him. He loves kids and always wanted to be a dad but this journey has worn him down and he feels like he's doing it more for me now and wonders if that is enough (the reverse of your situation, MB123).

My heart feels like a ping pong ball. So much really good and really bad news on these status updates.
DesignerBugI hear ya. Doesn't seem to be any in betweens these day.s

silverdollarMaybe we need a good news and a bad news side to the updates. It does seem strange to have them all jumbled together.
Mar 02 2011 10:32 AM
impatientHehehe ... if you feel like being inspired, go to the good side; if you feel like being blue, go to the bad side. How about it Rick?

My heart just breaks for all of us, it is just aweful to want something so joyous , that would bring some of us such sorrow... Bless all the Angel Babies that brought us even a short amount of happiness and fulfillment ...
Had a Dr appointment today....we got to hear the beautiful sound of our baby's heartbeat again!!! I just can't get enough of that awesome sound!!!!!
LuckypennySooo happy to hear that things are going well :-)

is just miserable...nothing is making me feel better. Wish this desire to be mom would just go away...
silverdollarI can relate. Hugs.

Hopefull39I am feeling the same pain sweetie. I know that is poor little consolation. Just know you are not alone. I started antidepressants last week. Not sure that will help much.

Laura1976Congrats! That is fantastic!

Unfortunately my body still thinks its pregnant ... My husbands hopes the boobs stay ...lol
DesignerBugmine too.... I can't wait for them to leave. Not because of the reminder of what could have been, but simply because they're just too much. Why anyone would pay to have these is beyond me :)
