I am so glad I could see the irony in this, rather than it setting me off into tears. I must be feeling better.
After I contacted each person who knew about the IVF to let them know it was unsuccessful, I received all kinds of great support. A silver lining in this was that I know I really do have great family/friends and they have been so wonderful during this. We live far away from everyone and I think I'm going to have some visitors coming soon! I am really looking forward to it.
Anyway, one of my great friends, who really is great, is pg. She has been a such support to me, but has had no fertility issues whatsoever, and how could she possibly understand what this is like. She let me know, after saying sorry for my failed cycle, that she has had to have 2 progesterone injections, given by a nurse (she usually delivers about 4 weeks early and the injections are supposed to help her go to 37 weeks. Her other children have been completely healthy). After those 2 injections, and because this pregnancy has been "harder", she has decided she does not want to be pregnant again. Of course, the injections are uncomfortable (muscular), she doesn't want to deliver early. I want the best for her pregnancy also. I am sure she is concerned about her baby and I totally understand that. But I couldn't help but think, a mere 2 injections has made this tough? I'd gladly do one every day if I'd get another baby afterwards. Not to mention that having the ability to "decide" that you don't want any more babies is a blessing in itself.
I guess I'm glad she is not walking on eggshells around me, anyway! The whole world doesn't revolve around my problems, either. I can be a very sympathetic friend.....over email, for now.
