Hi everyone. My update isn't one of good news. Huge temp drop this morning and some spotting. Starting to cramp pretty bad, so I know what's in store for me this weekend.

Dr. never called with my betas but that's okay because I knew in my heart this one wasn't going to work.

Vickie,

I just want to say I am so so sorry for the losses you have endured. Take the time you need to heal emotionally. Eventhough, we don't realize it, our DH's go through all the pain with us, and it is so hard on them to see us hurting. Be kind to each other during this difficult time.

When you are ready to TTC again, everyone will be here waiting to cheer you on. I don't know your history but it seems you can get pregnant, just having problems sticking around. Are you taking progestorone after 'O'? If not, it may be something to ask your dr. about.

I wish I could be of more help. I tried for 3 years (ivf, iui) and never got a BFP, until we did DE in January. So the fact are getting a BFP is on your side. Have you tried clomid or Femera? I know some women on the board have had success with them.

Best wishes to you,

Kristi

I'm so glad you decided not to give up, Vickie. Although we would've understood if you had said...enough is enough. I've been there too. :(

I'm glad that the cramping let up and that the bleeding isn't too bad.

Please know that I'm praying for you.

Vickie, I can't remember if I posted this info to you or not (I turned 43 today, so I'll use that as my excuse!). Do you remember Mattie from the boards? She adopted embryos, and so did Krista. I know you may not be ready to even think about that, but you might just tuck it away and mull on it. That's what I'm doing with the idea of using donor eggs. I'm on there yet mentally, but I'm chewing on it. I know that for Mattie, she said it cost around $4400, and that included travel and lodging. But heck, girl, I think the fact that you can GET pregnant is amazing. I can't even seem to accomplish that right now. So please just don't give up your dream of being a mommy. I think all of the members on our board and their respective stories are living proof that families are made in LOTS of different ways. Hugs to you, and I hope you're feeling better. Lots of prayers for you!

Hey Vickie, One more thing I'm wondering about...have you had any testing done to see if there is a reason for the recurrent miscarriages? It could something that just needs to be corrected with a medication of some sort. I just keep thinking about you. Maybe it's some sort of clotting issue or something like that??? You've probably had the testing done and are thinking DUH, BRANDY, but I just wanted to throw that out there. I know you are sad but I'm so glad you're not giving up.

Hi Sharon-thanks for thinking of me. We are going to get those babies one day soon too, I just know it. Are you trying again or taking some time off?
