Hey

Where is everyone??

I'm at home with nothing to do...house is cleaned, DD is playing with her legos, dog is sleeping, DH is working. LOL!
Well AFM my next IVF cycle should start next week. (Either Thursday or Friday, possibly Wed) To be completely honest with you, I'm not too thrilled about it. I'm doing it because I don't want to quit and the thought of being pregnant still makes me very happy. However, I'm so scared of another loss OR it just not working at all. I don't know, I'm confused by it all. My emotions really are all over the place. I was considering joining the April board but decided against it.

SO what's up everyone!!?? Keep me busy please!!! Smile

It's normal for your emotions to be all over the place. What you are going through is kind of a big deal. Good luck with your cycle.

Not too much up with me. I'm back and forth between home and our lake house. DH and I are planning a trip to Sedona, AZ at the end of the month for our 5 yr wedding anniversary. Going to head out for a run soon because I ate way too much sweet corn and bacon on my BLT's.

Marisol, I felt the exact same way when I was about to start my second cycle. Didn't really feel motivated to do it, but just not ready to quit just yet. I would agree with Meg....it's totally normal. The fear/expectation of disappointment is so difficult. I don't know if I have the magic advice, but just know your feelings are normal. I'm wishing you the best of luck for a smooth cycle ending with a BFP.

Marisol and Jenni, I'm here all the time looking for updates! Good luck to both of you.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one that felt this way. I think when I did the first one I was so over the moon excited (we both were) that we just didn't think anything bad would happen. We looked at IVF very black and white, but we soon learned our lesson on that.

Jenni-how cool is that. I hope we can end up being cycle buddies!!!

I remember the feeling of dread when I'd think about another cycle. I think the thing I didn't want to experience the most was the wait between ER and ET wondering if my embies were going to make it and the 2WW. I could handle everything else but that. I agree, my first cycle I was excited about, my 2nd not so much. I was excited for my 3rd because it had been 8 months since I did a cycle and I had a new RE and had new hope.

Hi all. I was lurking around here a few months ago. DH and I took the last few months off to just breathe and relax. Definitely dispelled the old "just relax and not think about it and it will happen..." (which I know most of us can't stand to here) myth. I really have had a relaxing summer of not worrying about TTC and it has been nice, but we fell like we are finally ready to take that next step. So we have an IVF consult with our RE on Monday. I already received the paperwork and am starting to fill out everything. It's overwhelming but I'm definitely ready to begin.

Marisol- excited to follow you through your second cycle! Smile

Marisol, I agree, your feelings are completely normal. I remember going in to my first IVF cycle and thinking it was going to work, I mean how could it not work??!! Was I ever disappointed when I was cancelled (I didn't even think it was possible to have that happen!!). So going in to my 2nd and 3rd attempts I was more guarded. Fertility treatments are so stressful and carry so many unknowns. Keep the faith!! Wishing you all the best!! Smile
