Sucker Punched

So yesterday would have been my due date if IVF #1 had worked.  I had meetings all day and dinner with friends last night.  I was doing really OK.  Like I said in a previous post, I've been really good about doing some things for myself this week like getting my nails done, going to a card-making class, and hanging out with friends.

Last night when we got home from dinner, I sat on an ice pack on the couch in preparation for my next PIO Shot.  It numbs it so that it doesn't hurt so much, which is helpful when we're now doing 2 and 3 shots a day.  While waiting for my hip to get numb, I had my laptop and was on several IF'ers blogs looking up crazy things that may help with implantation.  I'm getting a little desperate and willing to try silly things...gotta buy a pineapple today...  At this point, Hubby shows me an email that he just received that family members are pregnant with #4.

The timing of that could not have been worse.  That one hurt.


  1. I am new to your blog and wanted to wish you the best of luck with your upcoming transfer. I have been getting used to pineapple in preparation myself. The silly things we do :)

  2. So sorry honey! I'm keeping my fingers crossed and saying lots of prayers for you.

  3. Sorry :( That does sting. Still thinking of you.

  4. (Hugs) I'm sorry, talk about crap timing. I hope the pineapple core helps!

  5. :( So very sorry. We haven't even started IVF yet (waiting til summer so I can lose some weight)...but every time I hear about someone else getting pregnant...
    a friend at work - who I AM very happy for, she's a very great woman and her and her husband deserve a beautiful family...but they just had their second child. We've been trying since BEFORE they were even pregnant with their first.
    Anyways - hang in there. :)

  6. I'm so sorry. We have friends like that who are going on number six. "It just happens", they say. UGH. Some of us will never know that feeling. Hope you are having a better day today!
