Yes, our cycle was cancelled last week : ( I took it surprisingly well considering how intense and emotional the whole IVF process is. By the time I reached day 6 I had been to the Dr. almost every morning at 7:30-8:30, could not fit into ANY of my pants, my stomach was so sore and I had little bruises all over my tummy (which are still there BTW, but starting to go away). The extreme bloating is JUST now starting to really get better....Oh the battlefield that is IVF!

So where do we go from here? Well for now we are going to take a "break" the next month or two. We are going to see what continues to happen with DH's count because he is still on his injects. He goes back to the uro next month, and I will have to go back to the RE On CD 1 to make sure my ovaries went back down to normal. Depending on how that goes we may or may not go forward with another IVF in Dec or Jan. So until then I may not be blogging much about IF or babies. I kind of need a mental "breather" from it all. Of course we will continue to try at home during this time and you never know maybe we will get one of those "miracle break cycle BFP's".

So for now I am just focusing on my beautiful daughter and husband and taking things one day at a time. After all this, it has made me feel even more grateful and lucky to have such a perfect little girl!!

I'm sort of new to this ivf blog world but I just finished my first cycle of ivf and now we are in the dreaded wait. I just wanted to tell you that I'm so sorry that your cycle was cancelled. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I believe in the power of prayer.
