It's a Bust

I know, I said I wouldn't get my hopes up - but I did, of course I did.

My chart went up, and up, and up! And so did those hopes. Unfortunately, the pee sticks have been negative - even today at 12dpo. Here's where it is currently.

It's so silly to be so completely gutted - but I really thought we would get lucky. I ovulated, we timed it perfectly, the temps & CM all looked fantastic, and yet here we are again.

Thank goodness we have a plan to do more IVF next month, or I would have been completely devastated. I mean, it's no bed of roses or anything, but it's something in place to move forward, you know?

Now to wait for AF - and hope she doesn't keep me waiting too long. :(

You aren't one of those statistics that just trips over your husband and is pregnant. You are extra special and unique.

ugh that's the thing I hate about TTC. The whole hope / failure cycle. It was exhausting having to mourn and then pick myself up again after each failed cycle.

I hope you get some good news soon!

((HUGS)) Those stupid hope balloons never deflate when you want them to. Hope you are able to move forward soon!

So sorry lady. But it's great that you guys have a plan for next month.

Big hugs, love. I hate that this is so difficult for you. It's just not fair.

Yup, it's a rollercoaster. Sometimes I find myself wishing those days of hope could last a few more before the upset kicks in. Fingers double crossed for you next time xxx

Hi from ICLW. Hoping your IVF cycle gives you a take home baby.

I'm so sorry to hear that you weren't successful this month. I pray you find success with your IVF cycle. Its so hard to not get your hopes up even when you try. I totally can understand.... you want to feel like you are actively doing something instead of waiting around hoping for it to happen! Lots of baby dust sprinkled your way!

:-( I hate when this happens. I've had a couple of those months (and with PCOS, they're few and far between!)...they feel even worse than all the others because our bodies do what they're supposed to do and it still doesn't happen! My thoughts are with you, and I hope you take a bit of time to take care of yourself. :-( Here via ICLW!
