an unfortunate sisterhood, indeed. i am not a superstitious person (ok, i lie. i am totally superstitious even though i try hard not to be) but seriously? is this thread cursed? should we scratch and start a new one? what gives????
bebelove: welcome back! sounds like hawaii was fabulous. i'm so sorry about your bfn... this is getting ridiculous. for all of us. i hope you find a good solution with the work situation. are you doing another iui next cycle?
sherry: yay! a boy! that is going to be one spoiled boy after all the girls in your family. boys are great because they stay cuddly so much longer than girls.
shell: are you on your vacation? where are you?
toothfairy: sorry to hear about the spotting. i really thought we were both going to get knocked up quickly after the surgeries. sigh.
gtree: it looks like it's up to you, girlfriend!
afm: 11 dpo. bfn. no reason to think that is going to change. i've been crazy distracted this cycle (which was a nice change). took a licensing exam yesterday and so now i no longer have studying to keep me occupied. i have noticed that i've coped much better this cycle by being distracted during the 2ww. i need to start planning something for next cycle. today i cleaned out our babyroom. it's been a junk/storage room since we bought our house (almost a year ago) and i just really felt the need to clean it out and open it up and maybe, just maybe, making space for a baby will bring a baby to me. i remember going through similar symbolic gestures after i broke up with my nice-but-not-husband-material boyfriend and was ready to meet my husband. it worked. so now i'm going to start the same process for a child. it's really the only thing left i can do.
