The Good with the Bad

I haven't been posting much or keeping up with you all. I'm sorry. I have been busy, but

I've also been a little withdrawn and anti-social.

I feel like everyone is living their lives, doing important things, taking steps towards having a baby – and I'm just here. Going through the motions, floating along with no plans.

A few updates –

The Good: We moved into a nice, new 2 bedroom townhouse. Everything is settled, and we're liking it.

The Bad: Our plasma tv and computer desk are completely broken and useless.

The Good: I have a consult with Dr. Sher (one of the leading fertility specialists in the country) on June 15th!

The Bad: My new insurance does NOT cover IVF 😦 I was halfway expecting that, but I'm still really disappointed. I don't know if we can be truly successful (and no more losses) if we simply continue what we've been doing.

The Good: I'm 5dpo! We had good BD timing.

The Bad: I'm not sure if we can expect anything promising to happen. I guess we'll keep hoping and praying for a miracle.

I keep hoping that Dr. Sher will find some way to help us! It could be a very long time until another IVF attempt is possible. Maybe we can figure out a protocol or treatment or answer or SOMETHING that will work.

  1. I understand the feeling of avoidance. I am there too. With this cycle having just failed, I don't think I will be hanging in blog land where everyone else is moving forward and getting their babies, while I'm still empty. Good luck with your consult. Even though our cycle didn't result in a baby, we really like his clinic and respect him. We have our WTF appt tonight with him. You are an inspiration how you get so happy and hopeful each month while trying…that hope for me, to conceive naturally is so far gone 😦

  2. I have missed your posts but I understand needing time away. I hope Dr Sher can give you more answers/options. I pray for you every night. Hang in there hun!!

  3. Great to hear from you! Fingers crossed for this cycle for you… Good luck with your consult – can't wait to hear what he says!

  4. I can't wait for you to meet Dr Sher, I met him in person and love him. I am hopeful he is the answer to your prayers. Congrats on your new town house!!

  5. So good to hear from you. I'm really hoping that Dr. Sher has some good suggestions for you on next steps to try in your journey. Of course, I'm still really hoping that this cycle works 🙂

  6. I understand how you feel, I have been "in hiding" for a little while now. It so hard seeing everyone achieve their dreams and meanwhile we are stuck waiting and wanting. I am praying that you get good results with your new doc, I have heard great things about him!

  7. good to hear from you- feel free to pop over to my blog as I have nothing going on too 🙂 :)Congrats on the move, I hope you are very happy in your new home. Good luck with the consult with Dr Sher, I have heard great things about him.Much love and luck to you…

  8. Totally can relate. I'm so emotional all the time about where other's are in their lives while I just feel completely at a stand-still. I keep telling myself that if I lose hope, I've lost everything, so losing hope can't be an option. Hang in there and best of luck with your appt on the 15th!

  9. I am right there with you.I think that's the reason why I've been such a bad blogger buddy as well. Just feel like we're at a stand-still and everyone else is moving along and getting what they want.Infertility BLOWS

  10. Sorry for the bad news Lisa. I just had my consult with Dr. Sher on Monday and it was very insightful, informative, and gave me a good direction. He recommended a ton of extra testing for me, so he definitely was a great resource. I'm confidant he'll have information, insight, and answers for you as well, and I bet he'll set your TTC in the right direction towards your next BFP!! (PS: Thanks for the pee sticks!!)June 08, 2011 3:48 PM

  11. Sorry to hear about your insurance not covering IVF. That sucks! I'm glad you're in with a good doctor though, hopefully he'll come up with a great plan for you. Of course, hoping even more that you're BDing did the trick and you don't need him. *hugs*

  12. I've been kind of MIA recently too and just came on today to post an update and see what everyone else is up too. Yours (and mine for that matter) is not the only blog I've come across with similar feelings. It seems like there's a common setiment in the IF blogland right now of feeling kind of down. Good luck and I hope Dr Sher can find an answer for you. Thinking of you.

  13. hi, i just found your blog tonight! i've read a few of your posts and your journey so far. you are super strong and i admire your determination through it all! i totally feel ya on the sometimes just feeling like you're going through the motions…i've had 5 losses ttc our first still for 20 months and there are times where i feel like i'm drowning with no way out and others where i feel so positive.i'm looking forward to following your journey and wish you so much luck.i hope your dr gives you some positive advice and answers.i started a blog a couple months ago about our journey.i'm wishing you lots of luck!positive thoughts :)maria

  14. Sorry you're feeling down and anti-social. That feeling has come over me alot in this IF journey, sometimes being around other "happy" people is just too much and even being around other IFs online is too much. Just remember that the beauty of a rollercoaster is that you always come back up! This is lindsey from endo in the arctic but its not letting me post from my account…
