I am throwing one. Join on in ...
1- I know AF is coming and I have lost all my excitement about this cycle I am so sad.
2- We are doing our taxes this weekend and I have this feeling we will have to pay.
3- I ate everything I could get my hands on yesterday ... Scale had moved down but I guarantee that's gone.
4- I could use a hug.
Aw Kim!! I know how you feel. I'm not in that emotional state right now, but trust me, after 13 cycles I know EXACTLY what it feels like. That's the tough thing about the "virtual world" because I am sure we would all give you a hug right now if we could!
Also, don't worry about one day of bad eating. One day won't hurt you, I promise!! I eat whatever I want every Saturday (it's my day off) and then eat right the rest of the week and it has no bad effects.
I wish I could say something that would cheer you up, but I probably can't. Just know you have a lot of support.
Completely understand where you're coming from. The only time my weight has been higher than normal was when we were TTC and going through IF. There were so many times when I just felt like throwing in the towel and it made all those other bumps in life seem harder.
Aww Kim, I'm sorry! I wish I could give you a real hug but this will have to do
I know how frustrating and emotionally draining this whole process can be and when you add others stressors on top of it, it can be overwhelming. Just know that we are all here for you and we understand.

Sorry you are feeling down Kim. Virtual hug! And virtual hugs to the rest of you struggling also!
I am feeling similar today. I have officially tested out my HCG trigger shot as of yesterday and today. Even though it's pretty silly to expect a real positive at this point, I am 6DP3DT, and already feeling upset and emotional that the IVF didn't stick. I don't have my pg blood test for ages, it's not even scheduled yet. But now I know that the trigger is out, I'll be looking for a real positive if I test. I'm pretty sure I won't test tomorrow, but I don't know if I'll have the willpower to wait all weekend. It's happened so many times and I'm just dreading the disappointment already.
I am a bit sad too....I am now 37. I thought I'd be done with this nonsense when I was 35, 36 at the very latest and now we are inching into 38, if it happens at all. I have a ton to be thankful for, and it really bothers me when I get sad like this. Can I blame some of it on the tons of hormones we've pumped into my body the last few weeks? I'm kind of a mess today.
Kim! ((((hugs!!!)))) d@mn you computer screen! Get out of the way so I can hug Kim! Can we say CB sisters? Ummm raise your hand if you tested TWICE today with BFNs. *raises hand sadly* I am saying, screaming, don't give up hope! I know it's so hard. And then I think, even if I DO get a BFP what if...... Ya know? I looked back at my chart and I didn't get a + until CD26. So we still have a little hope right? Your temps are still way way above your coverline too. I must say.... I'm starting to think Christmas baby for myself. Maybe? Please God!! Give us a BFP!!! Oh, and p.s. I am a fatty McHog this week too. I just don't feel like dieting. I'm grouchy and b!tchy. Arrrggg! More (((((hugs)))))!
