heregoesnothing----I'm doing ok. The year has passed so quickly but I feel like I am in limbo. It's hard, when we lost Thea, I was devastated but I was comforted by the thought  'well, at least we know I can get pregnant now'. As it turns out, I was wrong. My husband's 39 year old co-worker had a baby, her 4th when Thea was due. She's trying to find a babysitter so she can get her hours in to take another mat leave because she is pregnant AGAIN. It just doesn't seem fair

Sorry for your loss, we just went through something similar and we're only three months out from the delivery and not even at my due date yet(next week) I can't even imagine what it will be like next year. I already feel in limbo but we don't have the added burden of hoping for a natural pregnancy. It seems like it was so long ago and like it was just yesterday. We're both struggling as the due date approaches.

My thoughts are with you hoping that you get some answers soon.
Me - now 36 Him - 37
Trying to conceive since our wedding day May 25, 2008.
Started Clomid Jan-April 2012.
Referred to RFP June 2012.
First consult at RFP November 2012.
First IVF cycle on antagonist protocol (GonalF, Luveris) January 2013.
Transferred two day-3 embryos, had severe OHSS, lost one twin between 7-13 weeks but was expecting one little one October 2013.
Found out at 6 mos that our little one had died weeks earlier and had to induce and deliver stillborn, July 25, 2013.
Something found on adrenal gland at follow up ultrasound, MRI showed what seems to be a benign tumor. Meeting with specialist Jan 8, 2014 - all fertility treatments on hold. :/
Tumour is definitely producing Aldosterone (causes high blood pressure) and Cortisol. Lucky me, only 34 similar cases recorded in the world! Tumour removed May 2014.
Approached about a possible adoption March 2014. Rush through all the paperwork and process.
Charlotte Evangeline born June 27, 2014. We brought her home on July 7 and held our breath for 10 days until she officially became ours.
Surprise BFP October 2014. Due to wonky cycles, ultrasounds convince Doctors I have a blighted ovum but detailed ultrasound reveals heartbeat at 6w3d. On progesterone support and waiting to see if pregnancy is still viable. Holding our breath again.
Adalyn Marie born on June 9, 2014 after a roller coaster pregnancy.

You're right Miko - it is not fair.  I hope you guys can find the courage to try again if that's what your heart so desires.  What a crazy ride this is...  Hugs and strength to you and DH.
