It breaks my heart to read this Michelle because I know how hard it is. Sometimes I wonder if we even want to try again and I know we will but it's just so hard sometimes. Mother's Day sucked for sure. I'm the only woman in the family without a baby, including the cousin who had one at 19 and thought it was the best thing ever (accident of course) and neglects her child so much he's a disaster. Poor child clings to me and DH when we go over there like he knows something...Anyway, I know how you feel. And you should feel completely justified in doing whatever you feel right doing. Whether that's stopping for a while, stopping forever, or JLIH...whatever you feel the best about or whatever you feel you need the most is what you should do. Trying to have a baby can hurt so bad sometimes and sometimes you just need to be able to take a step back....I threw away my Clomid too after the third cycle. I think Clomid makes it harder to deal with but that doesn't mean at all that what you feel is not entirely justified and it is. I'm sending you giant hugs and prayers. I'm so sorry you've having to struggle like this.
I can understand completely. People always ask when we are going to have a baby. I am 31 & I realize that people wonder, but it does get tiresome. I think I may start using your response! I have definitely been in your shoes..with a pregnancy announcement like that. It is very discouraging to ttc for so long and not have any children. It makes you wonder if you will ever have a child. Anyway- I understand and I think taking this time away will be good. I have been on a ttc hold last month and this month. As you can tell, I haven't been on here very much. We are getting married in June and I want to feel happy and relaxed and be able to enjoy DF and hawaii. I can tell you...it feels great. So you will feel better in no time, with a break. People always say they get pregnant when they least expect it...when they stop trying. Maybe me and you will get a surprise BFP.
