Sept. buddies (2010) how are you doing?

I haven't seen any recent post from any sept buddies and I was wondering how you all are doing. Those of you who got BFP's or BFN's what are up to now?

As for me- ivf feels like a dream to me, I still can't believe its done and I got a bfn, it feels like so long ago...I definitely have my sad moments but for the most part I am coping well. Someone once said that you should plan things to look forward to and it makes this journey easier, I totally agree. I am looking forward to Christmas I even started shopping, its my most fav. holiday.

Ttc was of my mind until my MIL told me that she is 80% sure that I will be preg either in Dec. or Jan. I was shocked but she was so sure, she is very superstitious. So now there is a hint of hope that she is right even though I know that my docts said there is a one on a million chance I could get preg. naturally. I hate having hope and then being disappointed af is supposed to come before christmas now if she comes I will be even more disappionted.

Anyways I hope you all are coping well.

Hi ladies thanks for starting this! I'm posting over at Fertile Community because their donor thread very active. We are doing donor in Dec found a great donor who has had two positive cycles before. So I hope I hope I can't take another BFN! Glad to see all the successful pregnancies! Chris I am so sorry I meant to post before!

Lee-Ann,

Congratulations! I am so happy for you. You have been through a lot so it's nice to know it was worth the wait.

Too many IUI’s, IVF’s and failed attempts to count.

Yes, we are going to try again. I called a new clinic Monday but still have not heard back about our appointment. They must be busy -I guess fertility treatments are recession proof, eh? :) Also just heard today that they are extending our insurance coverage to June 2011 so we'll get 1 more attempt this year and 2 before June so if I'm up to it and the RE thinks we have a chance I'm going to keep trying. Why not if it's free, eh? I will be off this cycle since AF is bound to show any day now and we still don't have a protocol but we'll definitely get in for end of Nov/Dec for another cycle (hopefully).

Carolyn so glad you are going to keep trying. Statistics show that most people are ultimately successful - just depends on how far you want to go i guess. That's fantastic that your insurance is covering you. I am in Canada and there is no coverage here so everything is out of pocket so it makes it much more difficult to keep going if things don't work. This was kind of our last try so we are very thankful that so far things are going so well. I will be keeping an eye out looking for some positive results from you in the future!

Hugs,
Lee-Ann
