10DPO and BFN. Of course. Now I have to stop wasting those sticks and just wait for AF and wonder what I should do next, Reiki or herbs or what? What can I do differently this time that I have not already done in 29 cycles or whatever of trying. I should just give up, I really should. DH has and wants me to.

hey Sharon, I tested BFN on 10dpo, then tested 14dpo & got BFP and I used FRER.....a lot of researching about HPT's & they say anything before 13dpo, you'll only get a 38% chance of accurate reading, 14dpo a 80% accurate reading & 15dpo a 99% accurate...that's why I tested again at 14dpo, because I 'felt' pg.

Hi, I'm a lurker here and I just wanted to say that I'm sorry you're having such a frustrating time. I am rooting for you even if you don't know me!

Just checking, are you taking multivitamins, especially folic acid? Probably I shouldn't even ask, because you probably know all about that but I haven't seen you mention folic acid at all.

Also, I want to say that I also understand completely what it feels like to have something on your mind every single day. Even while you're washing dishes, whatever, just living life, the motherly feelings are always hanging there, not to be ignored. I know, it is hard to co-exist with those feelings!!

Wishing you the best of luck ASAP

Molly

Thanks for your post and to everyone on the board is always finger crossing for me.
Yes, I take a regular multi-vitamin with folic acid, I know you need that to prevent neural tube defects and there is always the "just in case" on my mind.
Its just SO unfair that my eggs should all stink since I was 38.
CD1 by the way. Not sure if I can get a well timed Reiki appt. - Sharon

What would your life be like if you gave up trying? Would you live it differently? Would you be different? Would you get a different job, move, take up scrapbooking?

Taking a break is never a bad thing. And my friend got pregnant naturally at age 43 --- after several rounds of Clomid and IVF (which weren't successful.) Then she and her husband took a break from trying (well, OK, she still charted her ovulation) and six months later....she was pregnant.

She was depressed and demoralized by infertility and joined a support group. She says she believed it helped her lift some depression and led to her pregnancy.

I can't help but think stress is a central part of infertility.

Good thought provoking questions.
If I gave up the only thing that would really change is that I would save some money on all my kookie treatments and pills. That's probably the only thing that would be different. I would still feel like crap when I see preggos or people enjoying their adorable babies and when AF does arrive. I will be 41 next month. I can't believe its been so long trying to do this.
