Another Fail, Regrouping

IUI number 6 was another big fat failure. We had originally thought we'd try a few more...but we are not doing another IUI this cycle and I believe we're done with them completely. I'm worn out and we're ready to try something new, with more of a chance.

We plan to both stay on our meds as we research and have consults with several clinics across the U.S. (NY, TN, VA, SC, maybe others) over the next couple of months. In the Spring we will move forward with either IVF or a new procedure we're looking in to.

I'm devastated these IUI's haven't worked. I did NOT want to get to the point we are at. I know no one does, no one even wants to be on this horrible journey...but we are. We were so full of hope one of these IUI's would work. After a few days of sadness and tears, I will find my courage again and be able to move forward and hopefully be able to get excited once this new journey starts.

Thank you for loving us well and walking along side us. I'd be lost without the support and love from family and friends through this.

Here's a really beautiful post I'd love for you to read: You Are Not Alone: Flying Together with Broken Wings

Shout out to my guy

No real update, just wanted to pop in and give a shout out to my amazing husband. He has been so awesome through all of this...the ups and downs of each cycle, the countless tears after failed cycles and negative tests, the emotionally unstable person I become on these meds...I'm a lot to deal with and he's been there every step of the way without complaint. He has been at every test, blood draw, ultrasound, and procedure and I'm just so thankful that in this horrible journey I get to have him right by my side (holding me up most of the time!). He is so loving and encouraging to me and is able to stay much more positive and hopeful than I am. I am so blessed to have him.

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy time with your families. I'm looking forward to spending the holidays with my family in NC this year. Thankful for an amazing family and three nieces and a nephew to love on and play with while I'm there!

Number 6 and waiting...

IUI #6 in the books. Now the long wait....
I figured whether we went ahead with another or took a cycle off I'd be stressed either hoping an IUI worked or hoping we got a miracle on a natural cycle. So we decided to give it our best shot with another IUI.

I will probably lay low the rest of this cycle may not post again til after the holidays. Hope you all have very Merry Christmas! 🎄 Thank you for your continued love and prayers.
