Well, another one bites the dust. Another negative. I think we are going to give it a few more tries and possibly call it after that. Liz is a bit more optimistic about it than I am. On one hand, we have only tried 4 times this go round. We have been at this since January despite that. But, when do you call it quits? For now, we are going to try 2 more times and might stop after that. We both want a baby, but at what financial and emotional cost? We have an amazing son already, and our family is good with the 3 of us. We just always saw a family of 4, but maybe that will not be the case.  
Send us some baby thoughts and thank you for all the positive wishes you have already sent our way!


  1. So very sorry. Don't give up hope! It took us 5 tries (10 months) to have Riley. You never know. My friends took 19 tries and 8 tries! It's just a crazy crap shoot really. Hopefully you'll have your baby. If not, having a single child affords you all kinds of things you don't get with having multiple. There is good and bad with both. But I do hope that you get what *you* want for your family in the end.

  2. It took us 13 tries (over 16 months) with Little Monster and 22 tries (over 2 years) with Boo. It IS exhausting. There were many times where I was ready to throw in the towel when TTC #2. One and done is not the end of the world, but much like you, we always envisioned a two mom/two kids family and it was hard to let that go. I hope it works out for you and what feels right is the right thing to do, no matter what other factors play a role.
