AF right on time
Sat, 09-06-2008 - 11:17am

I really wasn't expecting my 6th IUI to work, but when AF hadn't showed up on Thursday ( a day early) and didn't show up Friday morning, I started to feel a ray of hope.  Well that was dashed yesterday evening when to no surprise there she was.   So, now it's time for a break.  Six long months straight of IF running my life has taken it's toll.  DH and I are going to take a break, hopefully not too long, but we need to reconnect again without this added stress.  Then we have to face not only the emotional stress of IVF, but the financial as well as our insurance covers nada.  UGH!  I will try to keep in touch over the next couple of months, I wish you all the best of luck and want to thank you for all of your positive thoughts since I started posting here!!!
