damn resolutions.

nothing like a friend's 3-D ultrasounds posted on facebook to remind me that i don't have a baby growing inside me.
i was really resolving to not be a jealous person, however the 7 pictures of the miracle of life was enough to throw me over the edge. i am so thankful that in this short time that i've been on this board, i have people here that understand what i'm going through and thinking. it still sucks though.

Me (36) DH (38)- me-unexplained IF/hypothyroid -DH-counts good, but volume is low; Married in 2006, off birth control pill. Started officially trying in March of 2009.
2 rounds clomid/ovidrel 2009, 1 round femara/iui, 2010, 2 rounds follistim/iui 2010. Weight loss surgery 2011.  Back to new RE 2012: HSG normal, AMH 0.43= DOR; IVF with microdose flare protocol in February 2013.

Yes.. I always dread seeing the baby stuff on FB. I've blocked many people's news feeds because all they seem to be able to post is baby stuff. We're here for you and anytime you wanna go over that edge just log on and let it all out! Plus I say.. were not jealous!.. JUST ANNOYED now!!! ;)

I agree with everyone....and with that being said...I pray that when I am blessed with being pregnant, I can keep in mind the feelings of others.

I know. FB is a double edged sword. I hated Halloween time when everyone had pixs of their cute kids in costume! And we had...another BFN. I know that will be us one day! Somehow, someway, we have to keep that faith :)

Big HUGS Jessica....nothing really is easy when it comes to others' pregnancy announcements when you suffer from IF and are so desperately wanting to make your own announcement, I know, I just had another one announced to me last week in a crappy way AND only 6wks into it and the whole wide world already has been told. JOY!


Don't beat yourself up over the jealousy...its ok to be jealous if it moves you in a positive direction to achieve what others have.


I am making a resolution too:


I WILL NOT GET OUT THE BABY BOOK DURING THIS IVF CYCLE.


I have made myself insane with the books I've read during all my treatments during the past years and I am vowing NOT to do it this time.
