Leaving as CL
13
Tue, 06-28-2011 - 10:17am

HI Everyone-

I just wanted to let you know that have resigned my position as CL of this board. My DH and I will no longer be doing IVF, and as such, will be moving forward our journey in another direction.

I have met so many wonderful women on this board, and I wish you all the best of luck!

If you are interested in becoming the CL for this board, feel free to private message our Community Moderator, Wendy, at

pboards@mail.ivillage.com.

Good luck to everyone in the future!

Stefanie

I second what Chris said. I thought you were in a cycle?!? I respect your privacy though and will be sad to see you leave. I wish you and your family the very best of luck in your next steps. It has been nice having you as a CL. All best wishes coming your way...........

Thank you both.

We were in a cycle for a FET on Saturday, however, halfway to the clinic, they called to tell me my embryo did not make it through the thaw. So, that was it.

We do not have the money to do another IVF, so this was it for us. We are meeting with our doctor Thursday to talk about other options (i.e, trying naturally or doing IUI) as he seems much more optimistic than our prior clinic did.

Nonetheless, since IVF will no longer be a part of my life, I felt it was best to pass the reigns on to someone else at this time that can be more helpful in everyone's journey.

I will still be checking in from time to time. This board has meant a lot to me over the years and I will be sad to leave, but I think its the right thing for now. :)

Stephanie,

Sorry your embie didn't make it thru the thaw. It is so difficult to receive news like that.

Please stop in and let us know how you are doing. Hopefully, when you meet with your doc., you can come up with a plan.

Wishing you and your family all the best.
