He said he is relieved to know that IUIs will be a waste and that the surgeon just saved us at least 4-5 months of more heartache. I agree with dh but its the harsh way to find out. It feels like I was handed the death sentence.
Wtng, I am so sorry. You seem to have been made to think you have every problem at some time or another in this process. The IVF diag. IS hard to digest. It just is. On the one hand, you're glad it exists. If I were in this situation 20 yrs ago, I would have reached the end of the road. Remember though that for a while doctors were telling you that ivf wasn't even possible. And while it's no picnic, it is a viable option now and your cervix is strong enough to withstand a pregnancy. Take the time you need to grieve it all. It will get better. I was freaking out about ivf a few wks back and then I was freaking out about the fact that I was freaking out about it, if that makes any sense. Acup., guided meditation (anji online, Rod Stryker, Andrew Weil all excellent), reconnecting with nature (thank you weather for allowing this) and trying to get my mind to be absorbed with other things even if it's a stupid tv show all helped. It's important psychologically not to hate/resent the process however you can.
I've been away so I'm way behind even in my lurking. I'll catch up
