IUI #3


So, what happens next?

I'm not sure.

I have options.

Injectible drugs to help regular my hormones and production of eggs.

Or IVF (Invitro).

Both cost A LOT of money.

We haven't decided what will happen next.

I am sorry. It's a tough choice.
I hope whatever you choose you stop seeing those BFNs.

Oh Jill :( I'm sorry. I was so hopeful for you!!
Allison said…
I'm so sorry, Jill. That just sucks.
Andrea said…
I'm so sorry! It is such a hard decision to make on where to go from here. Take some time to think about it and make sure you are feeling 100% both physically and mentally. You know how draining all the IF testing and treatments can be.

Well that just plain sucks. I keep waiting. I know one day I will be reading a happy little post about a positive test.

I'm at that injectable drug stage. And they can be terribly expensive if your insurance isn't onboard (which mine is not).

My doctor told me about some drugs you can purchase from England. Technically he cannot recommend them, because they are not FDA approved. However, England is not a 3rd world country, and these meds are approved by their version of the FDA.

Just to compare, the meds you would get in the US cost something like $70-80 per unit, the England version around $14 per unit. Shipping was about $25 for the whole lot. (at least the ones I was told to get)

Ugh. That sucks. And this process is hard enough without having to worry about the finances part of it.

I'm sorry. :(

I'm so sorry! I hope you'll find peace in whatever you decided to do next.
Aleca said…
I'm so, so sorry Jill. That just sucks.
Boo! TTC sucks a big one.
I'm so sorry. I hope you guys are doing okay. I know there isn't much to say to make you feel better but I'm praying.
Hang in there.

Danica said…
Jill I am so sorry. Sending you all the hugs I have.
Oh this is just absolutely not what I wanted to hear from you.

I am so sorry.
I can't imagine how difficult these next days of deciding the game plan are.

Hug, hug, hug.

I just wanted to let you know that you are in my thoughts.
I read your blog all the time and I was really praying for you that this would be it. My thoughts are with you as you decide what steps to take next. Stay positive.
Whitney said…
Oh, Jill! I'm so sad for you guys that this wasn't the time. I wish there was something I could do, but I guess I can just say I'm here if you need an ear!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
