Good Week/Bad Week

I can’t believe it’s time for ICLW already! During last month’s ICLW, my DH and I had just found out that we were pregnant and that we had more than doubling betas. One month later, we are preparing for a D&C. It’s crazy how much things can change in the matter of a day or so, for the good or for the bad.

Wednesday is our 3rd anniversary. We haven’t been able to go on a vacation the last couple of summerw do to the timing of our infertility treatments. And, again this summer, we are not sure where we will be able to go. So, I planned an overnight get-a-way for us. I haven’t even told my DH where we are going! I am even going to pack for him tonight. We are dropping our puppies off at the in-laws around 7:45am tomorrow and will pick them up around 11:00pm on Wednesday night. I am looking forward to the next couple of days even though it’s only something small.

Thursday on the other hand is another story. We have another confirmation u/s scheduled for 9:00am and I have to be at the hospital at 11:30am. The surgery itself is scheduled for 1:00pm. Of course, I am not looking forward to this. But, then again, I am ready for this to be over. I am so miserable.

I am very hopeful that next month I will have so more positive news for ICLW. This depressing stuff is horrible.

It really is amazing what a difference a month (or a day) makes. Please enjoy your surprise getaway and I'll be thinking of you on Thursday. I hope next month bring the positive news you deserve.

Congratulations in advance on your anniversary. But what a rough time for you! I am here from the ICLW list--and it sounds like this is just such a tumultuous time for you. Best wishes for getting through this week.

Oh hun, so sorry. As you know, there is some relief in "getting it over with." D&Cs are so exhausting and draining, both physically and emotionally. hang in there. I think about it all the time - how my life has changed so completely in moments, 1 ultrasound and BOOM, I'll never be the same. And don't even ask me how I survived the second time.

So, I hope you have FUN with your dh, and really find a way to be at peace and enjoy the time together.

Hugs to you this week as you'll be gearing up for your D&C. In the meantime Happy Anniversary and I hope that you and your DH have a fun little get-away!

I hope you are able to relax and enjoy your anniversary get away. I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine your grief. Just keep the faith, we all go on a different journey to reach the same goal. This is just a detour on the journey.

Really sorry to hear about your news, at a time when you were probably getting excited - it's awful luck. Good on you for finding something else to look forward to, and planning something nice for your hubby when you're probably feeling pretty down. Hope your luck improves - ICLW.

I'm sorry for your loss. I think that mini-vacation is really important for you. It will likely be good to get a break from life, even if it's just for a weekend.

Jacksmom said... [Reply to comment]

I have been following you for a little over a month now. I really wish this had worked out differently for you. I hope you enjoy your little rendezvouz and try to enjoy your anniversary. I know how something like this can totally hamper that time (our last IVF cycle we found out all three of our embryos were genetically abnormal and our cycle was cancelled on our 4th anniversary). Thinking of you.

Stacie said... [Reply to comment]

I am so, so sorry for your loss. It just isn't fair that having the family of our dreams is so hard for those of us who want it so badly. Hugs.
