Dear Cathy,

I'm so sorry about your IVF not working, this has to be difficult to deal with. I wish I could say something to comfort you. Just remember, you're still in our thoughts and prayers. Take care of yourself, do something for you, and take things easy.

God bless,

I am so so sorry.... I know how disappointing and thoroughly frustrating this is.

I'm glad you are going to take a little time for yourself. I, too, am taking the next few months just to regroup, grieve a bit, and get myself back emotionally/mentally/financially to begin again. It has been so worth it to take a little break. I wish you were close by.... I'd whip up a batch of margaritas for the both of us!!

Please know that we are all here for you. I'm sending you a much needed ((((HUG)))) today.

Sending you lots of hugs...so sad when I saw your post. I know there aren't words to make your sadness or anger go away...please know I'm praying for you & I'll be thinking of you.

Wish there was something more I could do...other than relate to the frustration this whole journey causes.

A margarita sounds like a great idea...take care of you.

Hi Cathie,

I am so sorry to hear about your IVF. I don't know what to say. After a short time here, I now know that all this is an emotional roller coaster...and you have to take it one step at a time and stay focused on your goal.

From your posts, I understand you have been at this for a while. If this is what you want, stay determined. Take the setbacks for what they are: an excuse to have a few margaritas while you can!! I am all for that. Take it easy and take care.
