Hope: The Necessary Evil


Yep, that’s right – sometimes no symptoms just means that there is nothing to be symptomatic of.

This cycle was different to others, but at the end of the day the same result. K did feel a little crampy last night and more this morning so we were half expecting a negative but it still aches.

I lay awake last night trying to get upset and therefore over it but until we tested I just couldn’t kill the hope. It was a hard wait this morning to get the result, we distracted ourselves nicely with some shopping and watching K’s school first IV playing rugby but we were pretty anxious.

But I guess it’s over with now, that chapter is closed and we’re on to IVF. It has really come down to that.

Toot toot indeed.

    Ah shit, well that wasn’t supposd to happen. I saved your blog for last this morning, expecting happy news. So sorry. I hope IVF is the magic bullet for you that it was for us. I remember it being scary, standing at the brink of it, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I anticipated. Good luck.

    Well crap. You have A LOT of company on this IVF train. There seem to be a ton of bloggers joining you on this trip right about now. I wish you didn’t have to get on it, but I do hope it works for you.

    Dammit. i’m so sorry to hear this. I am hopeful that IVF will do the trick though.

  9. I’m gutted for you two. Dammit.

    I’m glad that Hope paid a big long visit, though, because you need practice feeling Hopeful during your successful IVF cycle.

    I’ll be cheering for you throughout.

    [long string of expletives] I’m so sorry. IVF is not as big and bad and scary as I thought it was a month ago when we got our last IUI BFN (AKA our last BFN ever). It has actually brought a new hope and confidence that we haven’t known in all the years of ttc. I wish the same for you girls. I’m sending you lots of love in the meantime.

  14. Boo says:

    Damn. I’m so sorry. Here’s hoping that’s the last BFN you ever get. I can’t wait to hear all about your IVF process (and of course about the BFP at the end).

  15. Olive says:

    Ugh, I’m so sorry for the bfn. I know how it is to still hang onto that shred of hope in spite of evidence it’s might be over. So hard.

    I have so much hope for your next chapter though. Go IVF!

  16. Suze says:

    I’m so sorry for the BFN, but now it’s just time for another step 🙂 It’s all a journey, and I wish you the best of luck!
