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.

Lee-Ann,

We have been paying for all of this out of pocket for the past 5 years and have exhausted all of our savings. What is frustrating is that we could have bought two new luxury cars or probably adopted a child by now if we had spent our money differently. I just got lucky with this job that they offer the fertility coverage and I look at it as a sign that we are suppose to keep trying this way because we have no more money to pay out of pocket, which means currently no money for adoption either so I have to admit that I'm not sure this is going to be successful but I have to believe it is my current destiny to try IVF a few more times. So I really hope you are right and that eventually we WILL be successful. I really would like to experience a day where I'm not worrying about getting pregnant you know? I feel like my life has been consumed with this for so long and I am just tired of it but I want to have a child.

I am glad things are working well for you, it's been a bumpy ride and I hope the rest of it is smooth sailing for you.

Carolyn

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

Chris - I agree with Amanda - you are such a stronger woman than I could ever be and the post you wrote was just perfectly written.
