I was inspired by a recent status update and thought we could start a thread.... Finish the sentence any way you like. IF related or otherwise.

 

I wish I had a dollar for every time.....

I'm 41 with endo

IVF #1: March 2016: Long protocol: Suprefact (200)/Menopur (225)

9 follicles => 4 eggs => 3 mature => 3 fertilized (ICSI) => 2 blasts (one transferred, one frozen)

BFN

IVF #2: June 2016: Microdose flare: Suprefact (40 BID)/Menopur (150)/ Gonal (300)

7-10 follicles (?) => 12 mature eggs => only 4 fertilized w/ICSI => transferred 2 @ 3days and 1 blast frozen

BFP: day 14 beta = 93, day 18 beta 557 (37h doubling time)

.... it stuck and we welcomed our boy March 2017!

back on this crazy journey again: June 6, 2018: FET #1...

I wish I had a dollar every time someone at work (co-workers, strangers, patients/families) would say...

 

"Wow, you're great with kids! Do you have any?"

 

"You are so good with children, when are you going to have yours?"

Who stole ambushed my stork?  So many failed cycles with nothing to show but bills, receipts, and empty bottles of medications/herbs/supplements. See my profile for details...

 

UPDATE: I'm counting the days and hours waiting for this miracle to unfold. Christina Perri's A Thousand Years pretty much sums up my experience.

Nervus optimist...thanks for starting this thread! I needed a good laugh after this week! And I totally agree with your their, there, they're comment! Seriously, that is my pet peeve.

I also wish I had a dollar for every time someone asked me if we are going to have another kid because we have all boys! When I say, I don't know, they then respond by saying, but you have to want a girl!

And I wish I had a dollar for every time someone on Facebook posts a really annoying and cheesy pregnancy announcement!
