    Mimi, good to hear you had some "magic" wine last night. (That's what we called the beer my friends and I drank on my 21st b-day. Magic=no hangover). You definitely deserved it. I hope you are doing okay.

    I don't have any real advice to offer about the follow up. If you are sure you aren't going to go through any more treatments, I don't see why you should have to go. But do they have any guarantee once you've paid for a cycle? I ask because my clinic waives all doctor fees for any follow up cycles if you've paid out of pocket for the first one. You still have to pay for meds/facility charges, but not doctor fees (not for me since mine is going through insurance). They seem like nice doctors....when I went for my follow up after my failed IVF, they didn't charge me a copay, which was a nice gesture. Anyway, maybe your doctor has something like that in mind?

    Jenni, sorry again for your loss. My early losses weren't IVF, with all that's invested I am sure it is even more hard to deal with after an IVF cycle. But, it is so hard to have that feeling of success and have it be short lived and so, so close. Definitely go get that Dr. Pepper. Hope you are doing okay.

    Meg, I have had regret over not doing garage sales too! My neighbor has made a lot of money on them. I'm not organized enough and usually end up having goodwill or something pick up. The last few weeks, I've been thinking about all the baby items I have stored away and how much stuff we could sell when I am ready to get rid of it all. Moving toward acceptance a bit, I think, because I am actually picturing doing this.

    I will be drinking too, if things don't work out this cycle. And a bottle of wine per night for a few nights will probably be in order. Dr. Pepper is great, but that wouldn't cut it for me. I don't know if I could go back the RE office that quickly after all this... for any reason. We have been giving stuff away to a local charity as we have gone along because I don't have the time or patience for garage sales. Plus, it is nice to do something good for someone else and we do not need the money. On the other hand, we are moving this summer and I am going to be hitting up some garage sales to fill up our house... assuming I can find anything usable.

    m/c mentioned....I remember feeling so guilty drinking a beer after my m/c. I think it's because I was so good to my body for so long.

    We give lots away throughout the year also. I'm giving some of the clothes to DH's sister to use. Other things that we have, like books, DH takes to work and gives them away to his younger pts. He works with lots of underserved ppl and it's always nice to give them to them because I know they aren't getting books at home.

    Did anyone see the Today Show today? They had a 40 lb cat on there. It was only 2 years old and brought to the shelter. It was fed a really bad diet. I felt so bad for the cat since it couldn't walk since it was so huge. They are going to put it on a strict diet then adopt it out.

    I've seen an online article about it, didn't watch the show. I feel horrible for the cat, b/c I have 3 cats and I would hate for them to weigh that much!

    Back at work. I started crying uncontrollably yesterday afternoon and had to leave. Last night was about as worse as I had expected. All of my anger turned quickly into sadness. DH doesn't do well with me crying - says he feels helpless because he can't "fix it" - so we ended up fighting most of the night as well. I know that in the end we will be alright but right now it all seems a little murky. When our main RE called yesterday afternoon he did mention that if I'm not feeling better to call and he will get me in touch with someone. Hopefully it'll be covered as a clinic visit and I'll just have to pay the co-pay. DH is flipping out about $ (we have enough but he likes to have at least a 6 month cushion) and is talking about getting a second job. Dude - you already work 50-60 hrs a week. When do you think you are going to have the time? I really think he just wants to work at Best Buy That's probably the biggest unknown about the future - when we will be able to try again (which we have decided to since it worked this time). Sorry to ramble. Thanks for reading. Oh and DH got the mail yesterday and there was a card from my mom. He was worried that it would have been a congrats card sent Friday but instead it was a "thinking of you" card. He was concerned about that but not about the GIANT ad from Hallmark about "What every woman wants to hear - 'I love you Mom'". Seriously?!?!?!?!

    Jenni, I hope you are feeling better today! My DH hates when I cry too. I am very tough, it takes a lot to make me cry so when I do things have gotten so bad they could not get any worse. I too left work early because I could not hold it in. I left early yesterday too but I went to the spa and got a facial and a full body massage. Massage was a bad decision because after about 5 min I started to get annoyed with being touched. I don't know what I want and that is driving me crazy. Things sound good but I get sick of it very quickly.
    I finally told my parents today. Of course, my mother's response was "It'll be better next time." I explained to her that there is no next time. She asked me why and I told her that the first reason was money. She interrupts me to say" You have my check book, write a check for however much you need." I said that that will not help because I cannot handle it anymore. I am emotionally and physically drained. Then she got all sad because they are not here and she cannot help me, I deserve it and it is unfair. I got so frustrated I told her I did not want to talk anymore. I am sure she is crying her eyes out right now and I feel like an a$$.
    My SIL will be scheduled for a C-section on 5/10 and I will go with her just like I went last time. I don't know how I'll get thru it.

    Sorry for my whiny negative post. I hate that I am spreading all this negativity. Ughhhh!

    Sorry you ladies are going through this right now. I wish things could be different.

    Jenni...things will get better between you and your DH. Remember he may be grieving this just as much as you and isn't going to handle things as well. I hope you can kind of talk him out of getting the 2nd job because it doesn't seem like he really needs it and that will just be time taken away from your marriage. I understand worrying about money, but it sounds like you are ok. Guys like to be the provider though.

    Mimi... It's hard for mother's when they want their child to be a mom just as much as you. People just don't understand it's not just financial reasons, but that IVF is draining in so many other ways. I hope you can enjoy being with your SIL.

    We have two Mallard ducks in our pond. DH saw them on Sunday when he mowed the lawn and they were back in there this morning. I hope they aren't eating our goldfish. I did some research and I found that they don't, then I found they do. I guess we'll have to go look and see if we are missing any fish.

    Big hugs still Mimi!
    I didn't mean to imply earlier that I was worried about our marriage. I meant in general that things will work out but it doesn't seem that way right now. While we do have our arguements and different ways of handling things, we have a pretty strong and solid foundation (thanks partly to this journey). Every couple has its share of ups and downs but fortunately that is the least of my worries right now.

    I'm sorry about the ducks Meg. Can you get a decoy duck to put in the pond? I'm not sure if ducks are this way but maybe if they see that there are already ducks there, they will move on.

    Not much on tap at work today. Still trying to catching up from being out so much lately. Man, this stinks

    Meg sorry about the ducks! I cannot stand ducks, there is a little pond near our house so we get them too. They poop all over our yard and driveway. Plus Roxie is afraid of them. Thankfully they never come into our backyard.
    Do you ladies like to cook? I love to cook, just don't have time to do it every day. I just got a new cookbook. http://www.amazon.com/The-Pioneer-Wo...5361744&sr=8-1 I got it on my iPad and it is taking forever to download. I cannot wait to open it. I think I'm going to cook tonight

    Oh and what are you having for lunch today? I'm thinking sushi
