Feeling rather depressed about it all lately. I know I shouldn't feel this way considering I've just started with an RE and we may actually have a plan....but I just can't help it. I know I should be excited and happy about the possibilities but ever since my first RE appointment (last Friday) I've just felt so sad. :-(

Maybe I was in denial or something until I heard the dr say that there was a problem.... I don't know. Is it even normal to feel like this? Or am I still just a freak of nature but now it's manifesting itself in different manner?


A big slice of chocolate cake with ice cream on top for all those who made it through this 'pity party' post.

Good Luck to everyone today.

I'm sorry you're feeling so down. I can't say that "I've been there," but I want you to know that I understand why you're feeling the way that you're feeling. I don't think anyone here expects you to have a huge smile on your face and to NOT be feeling down. You were given some lousy news. However, you were also given a light at the end of the tunnel. You don't have to go through this alone -- of course WE'RE here, but now you'll also have the help and support of a great RE. {{{HUGS}}} to you. Thanks for the cake and ice cream. ;-)

Oh andrea, I'd say it's perfectly normal. I know that everytime I am going to have a doctor's appt. I get all ready for it and then once it's over I always feel depressed. I think for me it's because I go in everytime in the back of my head thinking this time they will say okay you just have to do this this and this and presto your pregnant and having a beautiful baby. And of course that has never been how it has been nor will it be.

However in your case I truly do believe that this is your answer I think the supplements will do the trick and you will get your baby. I know it is hard to keep hoping - I fight with myself everyday. I mean I'm still crazy enough to be in the middle of spotting or AF and still thinking well maybe it will stop and I will get a +++++. I mean how crazy is that LOL.

((((((EXTRA BIG HUGS)))) to you today

I'm sorry you're feeling down, Andrea. I know how hard it is to realize you have to go to an "infertility" dr. But I really think this is the right course for you, sweetie. Hang in there. (((Hugs)))

Thanks for letting me know that I'm still normal. lol! Seriously, though...I always find it amazing that you are going through the exact same thing as me....same problems, issues, feelings, emotions, everything. I am so glad I am not alone in all of this.

LOL about getting your hopes up even though you are spotting. I do that too. Hey, it did happen once for you while you were spotting. Hopefully, it will happen again and things will be just perfect this time. That is my wish for you. :-)


Thanks for the kind words and HUGS. I can really use them today.

I know it's it funny how we seem to be on the same wave length. Actually the one time I had the ++++ I hadn't really spotted at all that month only one time and that wasn't like any of the other spotting times and it only happened after BD'ing so...

I really feel like this will happen for you and I. WE are to the RE now, this will happen and we will get our babies. We'll be super Mom's out there with our strollers and loving every minute of this miracle that we are getting to share. It will be great!!! We just can't give up hope. So let's take turns - today I'm feeling pretty positive about it all and so I'll be the hopeful one - next week it may be your turn when I'm feeling blue and AF has arrived yet again :)

Yup - you are freak. Sorry, but its true. SLAP UP SIDE THE HEAD Ms. Andrea, of course you aren't a freak. You have every right to feel whatever emotions you are feeling. Sweetie, wish I could hop on a boat and dash up to see you so we could have a thoughly girlie evening of watching ice skating (not my thing but I'd watch it for you), drink hot chocolate, and then laugh at all the silly things we put ourselves through during TTC.

((ISLAND WARMTH HUGS TO YOU))
