A Brutal Week - Send Love

It's been a rough week for fellow bloggers on the IF path this week. This may be old news to many, but since I live under a big ol' IF rock, I'm just getting to this. Please take some time to send your love to them. Two gals miscarried this week, Mo and Will and Sprogblogger. When I read Sprogblogger's news on Friday, I just sat numb at my computer screen. This was the last of the truly bad news I had read all week on the IF blogs. Both gals have had multiple miscarriages, so my heart goes out to them.

Please send a big hug over to Nikki who got a BFN on her FET from IVF #5 with two beautifully thawed embryos. Nikki has also been on this path way too long. Kate also got a BFN on IVF #2 converted to IUI. Kate holds a special place in my heart because we are the same age : ) on the same path.

Jill's FET cycle was canceled with a WTF poor lining. She was giving it her all to prepare her body, and then this bombshell.

Finally, please give a shout out to Mrs. LastChanceIVF who has endured drama after drama for her last chance at IVF. Let's be her cheerleaders hoping her retrieval goes off sans the drama on Tuesday! Universe, can we catch a break here this week?

Wow, things have just been extra sucky all around in the IF world. My heart sinks just thinking of everyone is such pain right now...

Very sweet of you to think of everyone.

Nikki said...

I know...it was an awful week. I cannot imagine the pain of Mo and Will and Sprogblogger. And Nikki...what a journey she has been on. My heart broke at the title of her post.
I have high hopes for Jill but can only imagining how discouraging that setback was. I will go read about your friend Kate now...
It's weeks like this in the IF community that make you wonder what the F we did wrong to deserve so much pain.

The women that walk along this road of IF are such wonderful women and I am so touched by your post. There's so much going on in your life but you've taken the time to send support to others in their time of need. Very selfless.

It is so good of you to get others to send love. IF can be such a painful and lonely road especially for those of who have been doing it for some time. I will go and give some love.

Thanks for recognizing these people and what they are going through.

I am sending all of them healing, loving energy.

That was very sweet of you Phoebe, thank you! While it sucks to be cancelled after 5 wks of drugs and prep, it doesn't even begin to compare to the heartbreak that others are facing with m/c and BFNs. My heart breaks for them. Thanks again for posting such a nice post!

Thinking of you...

I was just thinking something similar -- a lot of sadness for far too many people.

My heart goes out to all of those women! Thank you for posting out an SOS for love.

You are so sweet to give me a shout out here Phoebe, truly. I got some nice comments and wonderful words of support from folks I had not yet met-- that was very kind.

I hate this process and how it consumes us in various ways, our time, our bodies, our money even, but still
hope drives us on--

Sending warm wishes to you,
and sincere thanks,
Kate
