Mommies In The Making

That white space….

showed up again today. Negative.

Our next step? Not sure, but maybe skip straight to IVF after our 3 month break. I did a super depressing thing yesterday and figured out just how much money we have spent on TTC. It was an ugly number.

Yesterday was hard and sad. I really want you all to know that your words of encouragement and well wishes did help lift our spirits yesterday and reduced some of the sadness. I am so thankful for each of you in this amazing community of wonderful women. I hope that while we are on hiatus that there are many many BFP’s.

    I’m so sorry it was negative. There are so many of us (too many) who know exactly where you are coming from. Stopping the IUI’s and going to IVF was the best decision we made. Right now, a break to clear your head and re-focus sounds good. I always tried to make the most of my breaks with my partner. Thinking of you.

  2. I’m so sorry. I really hoped it would happen this cycle for you guys….

  3. Yeah, adding it up can be super depressing.

    Fwiw, I wish we had moved on to ivf a lot quicker than we did; I think it’s a good idea…

    Hope your hiatus is relaxing and rejuvinating.

  4. It sounds like you guys are dealing with a lot. I hope your break is refreshing, and helps make the next steps clearer!

  5. I’m so sorry for the empty space.

    Like nakupenda724, we too wish we had gone to IVF earlier as well.

  6. Oh, I’m so sorry. I hope your break is rejuvenating and full of love. Yeah, adding it up isn’t pretty … I know that feeling … but you’ll get there. Hugs.

  7. So sorry this wasn’t it for you. Best of luck during the break and after, whatever you decide.

  8. Well crap! So sorry. And to add insult to injury calculating the total cost is like rubbing salt in an already open would. We were forced on a 3 month break and although we didn’t want to go on it I’m glad we did. We made sure to have lots of fun and make the most of it. Hope you get to do that too!

  9. So sorry it was negative. 😦 I agree with the others, if you are well off enough to pay for IVF, then I say go for it. While IVF is not a guarantee, the odds are so much better than with IUI. If you do stick with IUI (or go another round before IVF) it’s probably a good idea to have the midwife do a sperm analysis. I know you said she hadn’t done that before, and I’d hate to think that your problems are all caused by lousy sperm.

    Ugh. I’m so sorry to see this. That said, based on your post today, it looks like you might be figuring out a way to get things moving for you, and I really hope you’re able to take that path. Sending many warm thoughts your way.
