Quoting Dr.Clandestine:" Anyone else dislike the majority of the TTC board? A lot of the post annoy me for some reason."


Me! Like all of them... "I'm sure you can get pregnant." "If it was meant to be, then it was meant to be." "It'll happen when it's supposed to."



Or the, "How much can I drink while pregnant?" "I think I'm pregnant!" "I'm 1DPO and I want to POAS now!" "OMG I've been TTC for 2 months and I'm not pregnant yet?!"

I know :( I'm bummed too! But even if we wanted to, it's kind of too late. We still need our therapist appointment, and since I got AF during the flu I didn't call to let me RE nurses know, and I would of needed to go in for bloodwork yesterday or today for CD 3 but I was still so sick



But it's not a long wait for us, our IUI day will be around Feb 8th. So it's not too bad. I'm sad but that stupid sickness kicked the crap out of me, I didn't have a chance to order our vials in time either. This month will give us time to spend some us time together and do some stuff on our "pre-baby bucket list" :)

Everyone seems to be having a good start to a short week! Even if there are set backs. :(

I'm also so very, very, very tired of seeing "relax, don't try and it will happen" to women who have already been TTC for more than a year.

I so wanna like your guys posts!!!! LOL
I swear I am SICK of hearing quit Trying and it will happen.
Don't you think I've thought of that already?!
People are stupid!!



Anyways my RE's office is jacked up. They called me to remind me of my apt for today, which my RE told me he didn't want me to come back until this friday. So I called the receptionist and told her about our protocol and she said that he wasn't even in today and that he was already booked up on friday and would have to call me back to try and fit me in. Ummm whatever! I started my injections sunday and have been on them since. Its not like they can put me off- I have to go in for my folly scan that day and discuss whether I need more Injections or do our IUI. I swear you would think that they would know which patient is scheduled for that and which ones are for consultation. I mean I don't mean to sound like a *itch, but seriously I'm all jacked up on fertility drugs right now and I have to go by our protocol

I think after all this even though it is going well now, I won't want to do this again. I will be happy with my 1 miracle, I just pray it happens.

I will pray for you too...I know how you feel. If I'm lucky enough to make it through this pregnancy after all the crap I went through to get pregnant, I don't know if I will be able to have another one, I may consider adoption at that point. I'm getting on in age too, so that factors in. I know theres women on here that have children and are struggling to have more and that sucks too, but I will feel lucky to just have one.

One is all I will be able to have. It saddens me quite a bit, mostly because I hate for my child not have a sibling. But I will always be open to surrogacy (if we can ever afford it) or adoption in the future.

I got some news today that I did not expect. RE's office called, apparently my Pre-IVF blood work came back that I'm a carrier for cystic fibrosis. I'm very surprised as nobody in my family has ever had that. So now DH has to get tested, if he tests positive our child would have a 25% chance of having it. However, nobody in his family has has it either. So IDK what to think! Of course I'm fearing for the worst - if he's positive, IDK if they would even let us do treatments? The nurse told me this was very common but I'm still worried.



Our next RE appt is on Friday, I'm praying that this all turns out okay. I'm sure they won't let us begin IVF until his testing is back, so hopefully it doesn't set us back yet another month... ugh, always something!

Don't worry girl!!!! Fingers crossed that it comes back negative. Even if, it doesn't mean your child will have CF. but I'm praying for you!

It's uncommon to be a carrier and that much more uncommon to be married to someone who is also a carrier. Try not to worry until you get his test results back! Easier said than done, I know.

Feb 8th isn't too far away. You're so patient to wait another month. DH teased me the other day saying he wanted to wait until Feb. Then it was March... Then it was next year. I was like no! I can't even bare the thought to wait any longer!
