Welcome ICLW

Cant believe we at that time already, but welcome to my blog – I am not really in the greatest of moods due to my 5th IVF failure which I found out about this week.

I know I would get totally pissed off if I arrived at a blog with a p/w protected post so I apologise, I never do it normally but there were some sensitive things that I needed to get off my chest with f-bombs flying all over the place.

I honestly thought that after debating in our minds for so long about DE that this would be the answer to our prayers but it was not meant to be, I cant stop thinking about how stupid I feel, thinking that this might actually work. We threw the whole book at this cycle, everything I could think of to do was done but thats it, done and dusted and time to move on.

Our moving on plan involves donor embryos who we have been given by some wonderful friends. My RE wants to transfer them on a “natural” cycle which just about made me want to puke because I dont even understand what that means. For now Im just going to try and get all the meds out of my system and see how “natural” this cycle actually is.

Thats all folks.

    I am so sorry to hear about your IVF failure. How wonderful that you have friends who donated embryos to you. I hope that your sticky baby is frozen there in that tube right now just waiting to be transferred. Good luck.

    By the way, I would love the password. 🙂

    I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately. I wish there was something I could do to help.

    I am in awe of the friends who have donated embryo’s to you. What an incredibly beautiful gift.


    If you are okay with it, I would like the password too. If you’d prefer to keep it private I completely understand. No need to respond.

    I am so, so sorry to hear about your cycle. I was hoping, hoping for a successful result for you. No worries about the protected post, you do what you have to to make you feel better. Good plan with the donor embryos going forward, I wish you absolutely all the best in the world.

    It is understandable having high hopes for a DE cycle. In many situations (including ours) it is sold as the magical cure all, that it is so easy to really expect it to work…I know I will, if I ever find a donor! So please don’t be so tough on yourself….yep, easier said than done.

    Donor embryos? Wow! That seems like a marvellous option for when you ready. What a lovely person you must be to have friends willing to offer you such a precious gift.

    Best wishes, whatever you decide.

    I’m so sorry to read about your latest unsuccessful attempt to start a family of your own, life truly is unfair and it’s when you read about stories like your own that you realise just how unfair.

    Your friends are TRULY amazing and you’ve been blessed to have them in your life!

    I don’t mind F-Bombs at all, so if you feel inclined, please feel free to drop me the password!
