Spoke too soon...
Wed, 09-01-2010 - 11:42am

Well, no big surprise here, but just as suspected, AF showed up today.  I spoke too soon moments earlier when I replied to a post saying not to give up on hope just yet, as AF symptoms sometimes mimick pgy symptoms.  Just as soon as I mustered up this small amt of hope, I went to the BR, and was let down by AF's ugly appearance.  I guess it could have been worse, she could have shown up days after I started to put some hope up.  What a disgusting day.  Its raining outside, our business is slow and not doing well, and now AF.  I'm just exhausted in every way, mentally, physically, financially... I'm throwing the towel in.  I'm done with RE tx for now-going to call a urologist for the DH and ttc naturally in the meantime.  

Wishing each and every one of you the best, and I appreciate all the support.  May God bless you with a healthy baby in the end.

Oh Megan I am so sorry, I feel so bad because I just posted in another spot to still have hope. I know what you mean when you say you feel unlucky. Sometimes I feeel like we cannot catch a break. Hopefully the urologist will help you feel more positive again. Fingers and toes crossed for a natural miracle. You absolutely deserve one.

I'm so sorry that AF reared her ugly head again! I can't imagine the disappointment when you finally ovulated on the right side and it still didn't happen! Don't give up hope though! If you ovulated once on that side it can happen again. Have you tried injectables yet? That's what they are doing for me this month to try to get me to ovulate on both sides. Maybe you need to try that too? I agree with the other ladies...take the weekend to relax, do something fun with your hubby and try (I know...it's not going to happen) but TRY to put this to the back of your mind for a couple days. I hope that you can find the internal strength to give the RE another shot. Or, maybe change to a different RE if you don't feel like you are getting proper treatment. Maybe you need a couple months to re-charge and get DH treatment and then start again. Just please don't give up hope! I know it's hard... Message me if you need to!

I am so sorry. I know you have been waiting to O on the right side. :(

Well, to make you feel better, I have been bleeding non-stop since July 10th. I had an ectopic PG and just got my 1st period post MC. The sad thing is that I didn't have a break in the bleeding. Before AF showed, I had brown blood (old) for a few weeks. I am so sick of pads that you can't believe. All I know is that after this week, I better NOT be bleeding anymore.

I really hope you get your miracle soon. I know it sucks to wait. :(

Oh Megan, big hugs to you! I am so sorry you are hit so hard this time, especially with other stressers. Take a few days to not think about TTC, and once you have had a break, come up with a new plan then. Maybe it will be a break from the RE, which is totally understandable, but just don't rush it. FInish up this week, enjoy the long week-end and see where you are at after that. I am really sorry you are feeling so down right now.
