Play it again, Sam...

Same tune, different day.

*Sigh* I wish I could say it gets easier, but it doesn't. I think I was more mentally prepared this time, but no matter how much I prepared myself for that phone call, it still made my heart lurch into my throat...

Thank you for all the wonderful, positive thoughts you all have been sending our way. It breaks my heart that I just had to call Mook and tell him: I can feel the sadness-he wants so much to be my rock, but really-how can either of us be the strong ones in this type of situation?

I went ahead and scheduled a follow up with the doc for next week--we're not ready to decide what we will do next right now, but we will spend as much time in that office that we need to feel like we are getting the information we need to move on...

We need to be handled with care right now--please continue those positive thoughts for us...we just want to get on the path that will lead to us becoming parents.

  5. I hated to read this...and am so sorry. It hurts to work so hard at something so important and have no control. ((HUGS))

    That being said...my first IVF and FET were a failure...but things worked out. I am hoping the same for you when the time is right to move on.

  8. I'm so sorry, JJ.

    I wished so hard it would work for you this time, and even when you are prepared for the worst, there is that little bit of hope that keeps creeping in...and makes you feel even worse.

    Please take care of yourself and each other and take all the time you need to heal from this one.

    Good luck with your follow up!

  33. I am so sorry to read this post...I honestly wasn't expecting any news yet...how were they able to tell so soon? I would have thought you'd have the normal 2WW?
    But, that's beside the point...the point is that my heart hurts for you both. I was praying for you the other night and said that even though I don't know you personally, I just have this feeling deep inside that you & Mook are meant to be parents and that you will do a great job so I just prayed you would be blessed. It's just got to happen...it is meant to be.
    I hope your RE can provide some insight. I know it's hard to keep on going but we are all here cheering you on :)
