    Default Checking in and saying Hi (children mentioned)

    Just wanted to check in on everyone. I really have no home on preg.org anymore, but I still check up on you ladies a couple times a day. Hope you don't mind. Congrats to all of you that have gotten BFP's!!! I'll be stalking you for the next 9 months.

    I don't know where I last updated everyone. DH and I have come to the decision to no longer continue IF treatments. If we get our miracle naturally we would be thrilled, but we aren't being aggressive in trying. I have come to peace that I most likely won't have any biological children. I am extremely blessed to have 3 beautiful daughters. All along our IF journey, I had always thought maybe God knew I wouldn't be able to have children, so he brought me to my DH and gave me 3 daughters. I never wanted to accept that because I thought we'd have more children. After this last failed cycle, there was no question in accepting it. After this last cycle, I just wanted to be done. I had never felt that before, I had always wanted to jump in and try another cycle. I think this was all God speaking to me telling me what his plan was for me.

    DH and I's relationship is much better w/o the stress of IF treatments. I am enjoying life more. I haven't felt this good for 2 1/2 years. It feels so good not to have to worry about money and every little thing we do. I'm actually going to give myself a little treat. I think I'm going to get breast implants after the 1st of the year. I am very small chested and have always considered this. I always told myself if I didn't get a baby, I was going to get new boobs, so I think that's what I'm going to do!

    Hope everyone is doing well here and I wish all of you the best of luck!!!!

    Meg - Its great to hear such an upbeat update from you. I think you have a great, positive spin on your situation. And you are right - you are blessed with three daughters now and a great DH. That's more than most women will ever have.

    I'm glad you still check in and I hope you always will.

    Meg, I was just thinking of you the other day and wondering how you were doing. I'm glad you're feeling so much better. The IF ups and downs are grueling, and it must be a relief to walk away from that (after grieving the tough parts of walking away of course). Your family sounds wonderful, and you are so lucky to have your three girls, and they are so lucky to have you.

    Love it about the implants! You deserve to spend a little money on yourself and make a fun change.

    Hi Meg! I'm so happy to hear this update from you! I know that "I'm done" feeling all too well, and it warms my heart to hear that you are at peace with the decision. When one sits and really thinks about the blessings in one's life, it makes some decisions easier. And congrats on the implants!! (My dream was to get all the broken veins removed from my legs if we stopped IF treatments.) Seriously, I am so happy for you!!!

    Hey Meg, So glad you updated, I've been thinking of you. It sounds like you are doing great and very happy. I'm so happy for the peace you've found. God does work in mysterious ways and you've been truly blessed. Now - onto the bbs - How big are you going? lol

    I'm thinking a full B/small to middle C. Not sure yet. Have to consult with a few docs and see what they think. I don't want to go too big and have them look fake (even though they are). Right now I'm barely a 34A. I'm having a hard time getting strapless bras to stay up on me and I like to wear shirts where I need strapless bras. I think the IVF drugs shrunk my boobs. I used to fit my bras, but they are getting bigger and bigger now. I was always hoping I'd get pregnant and be able to enjoy the bigger bbs then, but now that that's not going to happen, I'm going to make sure I can have them . This is all for me...it's not DH saying he wants me bigger, he's happy with how I am, but of course he's thrilled I'm going to do it. I'm going to do it in Jan so I can wear bigger clothes and heal before summer. Also, we will put more money in our health savings account since right now that's depleted from IVF.

    I agree, I wouldn't go too big either. If you are petite they wouldn't look right. You'll have to share before and after shots with us.

    Yea...I'm not going for stripper/porn boobs. I'm tall and slender so huge boobs wouldn't look good.

    Hey Meg,

    So glad to hear from you. I am sure that decision, although hard, must have felt good. Its hard to be in limbo land. I also keep thinking, when do you stop and accept things the way they are. Its hard on u and ur family. I think you are in a happy place and those boobs should definetly be a nice treat for yourself. Pls check on us from time to time. We miss u around here
