    I'm super busy today but just wanted to stop in and let you know I'll update after the ER tomorrow. I've got lots of nervous energy, which is good since I have tons of housework to do. I'm getting a lot done, quickly! I'm nervous, for sure. We have to get up and out the door really early tomorrow so I have to get everything ready to go tonight, for all of us. Will update tomorrow.

    Hi ladies! Sorry I have been MIA. As soon as I start to feel better, something happens and I get back into the self-pity mode. DH has made sure that the family (the people that know about IVF) act as if nothing happened. That is helping a lot, because I am not getting those pity and "it will be ok" comments. My follow up appointment is Wednesday, so I think after that I will be ready to let this go.
    SIL is scheduled for C-section on Thursday and I will be going in with her. DH knew that this is not going to be easy week for me so we went to the lake Saturday afternoon. We decided to get stinking drunk looking at that huge moon and we slept over on the boat. Yesterday was regretting my stupid decision to get drunk and trying to get over the headache and nausea day

    I just finished The Help, and I liked it more than the movie of course But I must say they really did a good job with the movie. Any suggestions on what to read next?

    I hope everyone is doing good! to all

    Glad to see you back Mimi! Sorry you are still having a hard time. Hopefully Wednesday will give you some closure.

    I wish we would all think about how crappy we'd feel the next day when drinking. I do think about that a lot so I really don't get "drunk" too often. My DH never gets a hangover. Glad you had a fun time though. We have to have those every once in a while.

    I'm reading the Hunger Games series. After that I'm going to read "Left Neglected" by Lisa Genova. Then I'm going to read the Fifty Shades of Grey series.

    Hi Mimi, sorry you are having a rough time. Saturday sounds like fun though, the moon was amazing! I heard that a moon like that won't be back until something like 2029. So good thing you took total advantage! And you definitely need those nights once in a while. It doesn't take me much to get a bit tipsy and then problem is I can never sleep after drinking. So I am always tired the next day even if it's just a few drinks. Hope you are all recovered today.

    I am happy to get some good book recommendations from you guys. Right now I'm reading "The Night Circus". I just started, will let you know what I think.

    That is exactly what I would do if I were in your shoes. Do you like history? I read a Voyage Long and Strange recently and thought it was pretty good, but I like history stuff. I also liked Blue Latitudes by the same author. It is entertaining and very unemotional, just the type of books I like to read when I am stressed out.

    Also, I have told everyone at work not to ask me about the IVF thing. I am such a talker and unfortunately a lot of people know... so, I have to tell them that I will tell them only if the news is good. I do not want hugs and stuff if the news is bad. Hell, I know I would just want to be left alone for awhile. Nothing wrong with being in self-pity mode.

    preg, m/c mentioned....

    My first cycle we told family and a few friends. With my 2nd cycle I had asked my friends not to ask me about it. I told them I'd tell them what I wanted them to know. One of my really good friends kept asking me questions about it. It really ruined our friendship for a while. The only ppl that knew that our 2nd cycle was a success was family. It was really hard not to tell my friends as I was really excited about it. When I did m/c I could grieve to myself until I felt ready to tell ppl. When I did tell ppl about our struggles and m/c the support was amazing. Our last cycle I told ppl and was more open about it. We did each cycle differently as far as telling people.

    I've mainly been lurking. Not coping as well as I had hoped. I have an appt with the clinic psychologist next week so hopefully that will help. Not dealing well with all the Mother's Day stuff but it is what is. I'll try to do better about commenting. Hope that everyone is doing well.

    I don't know how anyone dealing with infertility could stay perfectly sane. I hope you start to feel better soon and come up with a plan that you can live with... either adoption or whatever. I try to remind myself that I can be more involved with my niece and nephew's lives and maybe if I don't get my way at the end of this infertility thing, that is what I should focus on. I hope you can think of some way to do that with your life.

    Hugs to you Jenni. Allow yourself to feel the way you feel. (I wouldn't mind if you had to post a "previous too whiney post"-never feel bad for posting how you feel!) I think talking with someone will be helpful for you. Don't feel any pressure to comment if you are not up to it. We've all been there and understand. Saying prayers for peace for you.
