    Default Frustration

    I just need to get this out...I went in for bloodwork as per usual...I start on Day 10 and go until I ovulate so we can do yet another attempt at IUI. And it took three times for them poking me to get a vein to get blood.

    And I ended up sitting in my car crying for like 20 minutes before I could drive home.

    I'm just so frusterated I see my friends with kids, my friends who are currently pregnant and its like wtf why am I the one who has to go in day after day getting poked by needles, having internal ultrasounds done, taking horomones that send me into a freakin crazy spin of mind, do procedures, have surgeries and I have no baby of my own. Meanwhile they decide to try and like 2 months later oh guess what I'm pregnant.

    I feel so bad too because I'm actually starting to turn bitter and don't want to be around them because they just say oh it will happen you just have to relax and let it happen.

    Well guess what....ITS NOT GOING TO JUST HAPPEN FOR ME!!!

    Sorry....vent over

    I am sooo sorry! I don't have experience, but my sisters have and I know the heartache they felt, each time one of us had a baby...

    BIG HUGS!

    hugs Melissa. I am sorry that you are going through this. I wish there was something I could say or do to make it easier. Instead I will just offer hugs and a shoulder to cry on.

    Hugs. I know the feeling of being bitter. I got to the point that I couldn't go to baby showers and DH would be afraid to tell me if anyone was expecting.

    Hugs! I'm starting to get the same way, I have many many people on my FB pregnant right now, and only 1 of them was actually trying, all the others were 'accidents'! It is very frusterating seeing everyone pregnant and all my family with their young kids, and I don't have a child at all! I feel very left out because my sister and cousin have kids 1 year apart, but they dont invite me to things because I don't have a child! Lots of hugs, hope things look up for you!

    Big Hugs - about 9 years ago I was in your shoes. i konw how awful it sucked! When I finally was able to get preggars with my ds through IUI I was ecstatic. had no intention of going through it all again and then thought onemore try. Started the process again and it was harder - I finally gave up and said that that was the last round I was not doing the needles and the stress and the disappointment anymore. That month I became pregnant with ds#2. Fertility treatments are not easy. They are expensive, painful and oh so emotional. I remember my arm hurting so bad from the number of pokes for blood that I could not bend it.
    I will pray for you that your treatments are successful this round!

    I'll send you tonnes of baby dust for this cycle. I remember how I felt during our fertility treatments and how it consumed me b/c it was just a constant with meds and blood work and waiting. *hugs* I hope this is your month!

    Hugs. It's hard when others don't understand your struggle to become pregnant and make casual comments that devalue your whole struggle of TTC. I too have left a friend behind because they were unsupportive and would talk non stop about how wonderful their perfect two child family was and that they couldn't believe that her OHIP tax$ were being wasted on fertility treatments. It took all I had to not call her several names before leaving and never returning.
