Soo just what I needed! I put a lot of thought and went back and forth from being sad to being content where we are. Never came up with an answer though. The only bonus was I could have (many) pina coladas.
My RE here called to see if we wanted to schedule a follow-up visit. We are not sure what we are going to do. I (and DH) kinda think if we do another cycle we will go back to CCRM. But since we need to pay off this cycle and I will be 39 in Nov, not sure if that is the route we will take. Ugh, IF SUCKS!!!!!
*child ment* I wasn't sure if I wanted to laugh or cry, but DS took his dosing syringe (for kiddo medicine dosing) and told me it was for medicine. I though he remembered his last dose of tylenol, but he lifted my shirt and put it on my belly. I didn't realize he noticed so much of what I did. IF affects everyone I guess
So glad you ladies are here. I can't imagine going through this without you. You all have a place in my heart

Glad you had a good vacation. I was going to ask you about it. Glad you were able to enjoy (many) pina coladas. Sounds like you have some decisions to make in the future.
I swear my daughters (I adopted my DH's 3 bio daughters after we got married) are going to think that babies are made from syringes and medicine. When I was going through my cycle, they knew I had to take shots to help me get pregnant. We didn't go into it all because they wouldn't understand. I wanted to let them know what I was doing and did the shots in front of them because I didn't want them to walk in on me taking shots and get scared. Our youngest kept asking me when I was going to go on my "baby rest"...bedrest. We'll probably get a call from their teachers because they'll be argueing on how babies are made. Our youngest still says things about when we get a baby or when we adopt we can do such and such. I've told her that we're happy with our family the way it is.

Hi Benda- welcome back from vacay! That seemed like a long one. Happy to hear you enjoyed yourself and spent time with DH and DS. It is amazing though how much those little buggers pick up from parents. If he only knew the extent of what you went through to have him- that is true love. Keep us posted on your next move. For now, I hope you get to enjoy the rest of summer with your little guy xo
So glad you had a good vacation. Sorry no answers at least you got to think things thru. It amazes me how IF really does affect everyone!
Glad you had a nice break from the day to day stuff. We're starting to think about cycling again, but haven't made it to that point yet. It's hard to even think about going through the struggles of IF again. At least there's a group of understanding women here! Hope you come up with an answer that brings you peace soon!
So glad to hear that you've found a little peace for now. IF is the hardest thing I've ever been through in my life and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. ITA, this board is the BEST and helped me keep what little bit of sanity I had. KUP on your next steps!
