I just got a text from S, she isn't pregnant, just like we though.  She took a home pregnancy test on Friday and again on Sunday, so we were expecting today's to be negative.  Still a bummer though.  I think the timing was just off.  She thought that she ovulated like three or four days after the trigger shot instead of the 36 hours that you are supposed to.  And even if she hadn't I didn't think that the timing of the IUIs was very good anyway, we weren't sure why our doc did them at the times that he did.  Oh well, doesn't matter now.  

We talked about it yesterday and we are taking August off from TTC.  S starts a new position at work today and so she really doesn't need anything to distract her from that.  Also, we need to find a new donor, the one we were using is all out and after three failed cycles why not change it even if we didn't have to.  I found a different bank that looks to be about half the cost so now we just need to pick someone.  The rest of this month we are going to really focus on fitness and nutrition, try to loose some weight the both of us.  We figured it can't hurt.  I don't think we have it in us to try more than two, maybe three, more times before we are done with this roller coaster.  I hate feeling like our baby is slipping through our fingers, but money isn't endless and pretty much all of you know how hard this is emotionally.  So I think this month off will be really good for us both.  Just wish we didn't need it.


  1. I'm so very sorry. It hurts every damn time and nothing anyone says makes it better. I hope that you don't need that back up plan, but I recall the feeling of calmness and relief that overtook me when we finally said "after BLANK month cycle, we are done." Of course, we conceived right after that declaration and I pray that happens for you!

  2. I'm so sorry. TTC just sucks! I always felt like I ovulated later than 36 hours too after taking the trigger shot. It's a hard road but so worth it in the end! :)

  3. So sorry to read this! I hope the timing is perfect next time.
