Sandy,

Nothing like giving hope with one hand and snatching it away with the other. I know that he is just trying to prepare you for the worst, but come on, he should leave you some hope. Remember though, if there wasn't hope, you wouldn't be here. Hang on to it with all of your heart. P&PT to you.

Hang in there Sandy. I agree with Mel about having hope. It's all we do have. I know too that he was telling you the practical side but he doesn't know if those eggs are good or bad.

WOW 10 follies, that's great. I'm glad you had a great u/s and the IUI is behind you.
