Got my period this morning. I knew I wasn't pregnant, but it was still a blow. Not sure where we're going to go from here, I'm hoping my doc will offer me a good deal on another cycle (he can't believe we've had so much trouble either) and I'd probably take it if he offers it. Not much hope in anything good happening, but I honestly don't know what else to do.
We're moving overseas in a year so not sure we can do foster/adopt right now but my sister's a social worker so I'll check with her. The country we're moving to doesn't allow people over 45 to adopt and my husband is older than that so we can't count on that as an option. I guess as long as we can scrape together the money, and we're doing it okay with help from my doc, we'll keep plugging away at this IVF thing. Boy, I sound enthusiastic, huh?!
Good luck to all of you. I can't cheer for you individually, and probably won't be here much, but in my heart I really do hope all of you have the babies you want.
Mom to two perfect, adorable, amazing boys!
