Happy Friday!

I have been slacking on my blogging.  I am starting to come out of my depression after another failed cycle.  Monday will be another sonohysterogram and a biopsy.  We are still waiting on blood work results for the karyotype test and we are not expecting to hear back for a few more weeks.  We are still planning to start a frozen embryo transfer sometime at end of October.  They won’t submit any paperwork till we get our results back though.  Soooo more waiting!  What’s new?  IVF and TTC is always a waiting game.  I am not giving up hope.  As much as I am scared this could never work I still have faith we will get our baby.

I decided to drop the class I signed up for for the Fall.  We have waaaay too much going on.  We have 2 weddings, a concert and my 30th b-day all in October and then the holidays will be here!  I do love this time of year. I just noticed that the first day of fall is tomorrow?!?! Could that be right?  Here is a silly Fall pic from a few years ago.  Yes, I am a tree hugger.  Haha

I keep telling myself I need to put together a list of goals for myself to give me something to focus on.  Especially since I am not taking a class.  Things like eat cleaner and gluten free, try new foods, etc.  I really have no plans this weekend so I SHOULD be able to come up with a list. Here’s a goofy Duncan pic…..Notice the stack of mags on the floor.  Yes, add this one to the list: Go through magazines (I am a magazine addict and hoarder and damn proud of it)

    Hi Kim, I’m glad to see you back here. I haven’t had the enthusiasm for blogging since the BFN but I’m hoping to get back to it soon. I’m starting to think that I need a dog!! X

      I am so sorry this cycle was not the one for you 😦 I have been there (I am there). It is so hard but hopefully next one will be the ONE. You should get a dog they are such loving creatures that brighten your day.

    Stopping in for ICLW. Sorry to hear that your last cycle failed. And I know the waiting just seems to go on and on. Hoping you get answers soon and wishing you the best with your October FET!

    I can so relate to your latest posts. It’s difficult to keep hope up, I heard the same, IVF is supposed to work within three times. That’s what the statistic says, but they don’t tell you the rest of it. Also, having goals for other things is a smart idea, it doesn’t have to be big things but to give you some direction. Best of luck! Oh, and that’s one cute dog. I love dogs 🙂

      I think if we started off saying it could take 6 or 7 tries I would feel differently. They were so hopeful they would get me pregnant on one or two they got are hopes up. I find keeping distracted keeps me going or else I could end up in the looney bin 🙂

    Hi from ICLW (#38)! I think it’s really useful to have projects/goals outside IF (I do need to listen to my own advice!) to take our minds off of this crap. I am so sorry you’ve just had another failed cycle. That really sucks.

    • Kim says:

      Yeah it does suck but I am keeping the faith. I always find when I am distracted time flies by and I have less time to think (or worry) about things.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog and good luck! I went through phases of worrying about what I ate. In the end, the only thing that did seem to make a difference (to me personally) was entirely cutting out alcohol – the cycles I was strict about that tended to go better than ones where I drank a little.
