Awwww danaa, a break is def needed when you get down. I'm taking 1 next month for sure! I actually may take a 2 month break. It's so hard, especially when it's all around you. I look at it this way, when I get pregnant I'm going to want them to be supportive of me, so I try to do the same. It's so hard. It's going to happen danaa don't worry. Saving up for ivf is an excellent idea. Then if you fall pregnant naturally, you will have a nest egg for the baby! Keep your head up!

Snow girl, I'm sorry you are having to deal with the same heartache as well. Ttc sucks so bad and when you get your hopes up then they're shattered, it's horrible. What are your currant plans for upcoming cycles? Ivf, iui? I would love to try iui but it would be $2000 at least. My DH doesn't want to go that route so we have to keep trying. Such a bummer!

You are right Leilani we have to be supportive so they can be supportive when our time will come!!At this point I don't think I'm going to really try anymore,maybe next month I will change my mind who knows,I just want to focus on getting Healthy and relaxing!!Snowgirl IUI are too expensive to even consider it,for me 1 round will cost me like 1000euros and the chances are really low Bcs I have a bad tube!!I don't think im really unexplained infertility I think i just haven't had enough tests!I haven't had any genetic tests yet probably when we will get ivf the doc will ask more tests!!Im greatfull for my husband and my dog Jack they make things easier!!

I'm seriously thinking about not ttc anymore either. It's way too much and every month I think I'm pregnant only to get af. It's so frustrating. I think what I'm going to do is focus on losing weight and getting my old body back. If I get pregnant in the mean time then great. I'm sick of being overweight because of ttc. I usually cut back on calories and take supplements for weight control but can't when ttc. I'm just going to start back if af shows.

Good morning girls.
You girls are so right about everything. We should be supportive of them because one day they will be supportive of us(I hope)We have to do either iui or ivf since DH doesn't produce sperm. We chose to try to donor route. So I am 'patiently ' waiting to O so we can do our iui. We did 3 rounds of iui with no luck. This time I took clomid and I believe it is adding length to my cycle. So I keep testing the opk each morning yearning for the positive.

It is a great idea to take a break. We did 2 ivf cycles. AFter the first one failed we took a 6 or 7 month break, maybe even longer. Then same thing after the second ivf fail. I would love to take a break but at the same time age is a factor for me. Plus the emotions watching everyone around me get pregnant. And after 6 years we just want our heartache to end. I wanted to cry this morning but I am trying to be tough about it. I too feel like I am gaining weight!

Good luck with the weight loss! I"m sure you girls can do it :-)

Thanks Danaa. I like the new hair style. It's always nice to change things up a bit. You have inspired me to go get a new hair cut or something.

So I was reading the news online and there is this woman who got pregnant with a married man who is in prison and someone said she had IVF blah blah,this is a big story Bcs she is a famous model and he owns a football team and divorced his first wife to marry his mistress who is now his wife(famous people)in a interview she was asked if she had ivf done and she started saying 'she never had to be at doctors doors or hospitals to get pregnant,it happened Bcs she desired it!!!!''OMG that smug b**ch!!!How can a woman who screws a womanizer who has 7-8 kids with 3-4 difrent women,how can she be so smug and talking this way,there are thousands of women who are going to the doctors and having ivf or IUI's to become mothers and IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT,I shouldn't be ashamed of going to a doctor!!!That b**ch!!!Im really pissed off!!
