Hi,

looking to you all for some wise words....its a crummy morning.

Here's some background....We've done 2 rounds of IVF with my husband's sperm and 4 IUI's with donor sperm with no success....this is over the last 3 years. I am nearing end of of 2WW following IVF with donor sperm.....transferred 3 embryos and last 4 embryos didn't make it to freeze....testing March 2nd. I've been on Crinone & had major breast soreness, mild cramping.

Having some dark spotting today & I'm a wreck. This is exactly what has happened the last couple of IVF attempts just before testing. I don't want to completely lose hope but pretty much know I'm not pregnant. not much support here....family just says try again & maybe next time. husband frustrated.

any advice or similar stories out there....its tough to feel alone on a morning like this :-)

<<>. So sad to read about your BFN. It really sucks to get that phone call about negative news or to get a negative POAS test. I can relate as I had two BFNs with IVF#1 and FET#1. I hope you find the strength and courage to relax while focusing on your next course of action.

As hard is it is - you never know stay positive - If we don't have "Hope" what do we have?

Hi Kelley -

I just wanted to offer some support and say I'm sorry your feeling like you are. Please know that you are not alone - I'm in the 2WW myself after my 1st IVF and I know that this one didn't work - I realize I don't go in for betas until 3/3, but I know my body, I know how it's acting and it's AF. I only had 1 embryo to put back in (my own egg) and am at a point where I don't know if I could do it again and knowing how broken hearted I am feeling,
