I am so depress!
ladylazarusMy heart goes out to you. I know this is intensely painful and I remember that empty feeling, that having the rug-ripped-out-from under-me feeling. You might go back & forth between grief and thinking about the next steps. Hoping the worst of the sadness passes very soon.

sandranlgOllie2013- I just feel empty inside. I try to get over my loss but it's too hard.
Ladylazarus- I know that feeling exactly. I don't think I will ever get over this loss it was my 3rd cycle and something that I was so looking forward for. And it's just taken away from me like that.

ollie2013oh sandra, what you are going through is heartbreaking.... the worse of the sadness will pass soon enough. We are all strong women on this site and you are too- you just need a little time to pick yourself up and dust yourself off. We are all here for you..I know it is hard to distract yourself right now but you need to give your head and heart a little rest, do you like tv or to read.. i always found that it helped me give my mind a break

If is wasn't for IVF, I would not have my daughter. I cannot believe I have a one year old!!

My dd and the dayhome kiddos made a Holloween craft tonight :) It was a lot of fun:)
What do you do when you feel like things are not moving forward in your TTC journey? Lately I've been coming here and reading as many posts as I can.
ollie2013I love this place too...

AnaïsI have been here since 2011 or earlier. I am currently expecting #2. Even if I am done after this, I don't want to leave here. It will be very hard like a real breakup.

s00nI come here too, when I'm thinking about it and there's nothing I can do. It's great to go through this with other people.

What a chilly day here today. Doesn't feel like Fall but Winter.
allcriedoutSadly, it is almost upon us, just around the corner in/as a matter of fact.
Oct 30 2014 06:19 PM
mrsfinxyI am not ready for winter. It has been such a lovely long autumn. I wish it would carry on for another month or two.
Oct 30 2014 10:54 PM
kookacolaI don't like winter at all. which is odd because I like it when it snows, the soft fluffy stuff. Just not the cold and sub zero temps.

Has anyone ever done an online fundraiser to help with IVF costs? I'm looking for suggestions, tips and tricks...thanks!
Nurse08We have done recycling drives (depending where you live) also online auctions.

colorfulpoetLook into http://www.youcaring.com/ I saw a few people who seeked out support for IVF.

Waiting to sign consent, we have decided to do 1 round of IVF. (And potentially FETs.) Feeling out of control of the body again stinks.
Trying to move on from my loss. Now after 3 failed IVF cycle with my own eggs; I think it's time for plan B or C. I want my husband to experience having a child that is biologically his. He doesn't matter one way or the other but I will not deprived him of that. Anyway that have used a donor please message me the process and how did you feel ed using donor eggs. Gosh this is going to cost me us a lot of money.
ollie2013when are you looking to start
Oct 30 2014 12:46 AM
AllySkyymy prayers are with you. Big Hugs

Feeling so freaking empty! I keep crying. I need my baby back. My daughter even started crying too and hugging me telling me she loves me and happy I had her. My heart melted.
orchidSo sorry to know that you are going through this ... your daughter is very sweet, lucky you have her!

AMH was 25 in 2012, now 20.8..what does it mean? big drop or looks normal? (wont be seeing RE for awhile)
quandryThey say that the number of mature eggs likley to be retrieved is about half your AMH number... Mine was 3.4 and I got two embryos to transfer... 20.8 is still really good!
Oct 29 2014 10:23 PM
ollie2013if that is the case, i would make a little more than half an egg...
amh definitely drops with time.. you still have a really good number!

Had my D&C this morning and now I am home resting up. Not in a lot of pain but my heart grieves badly. I should have the results back in a couple of weeks to let me know why my baby died. I am very sad but trying to stay faithful.
allcriedout(((HUGS))) I am sorry for your loss.
