  40. Oh Liz. I'm so sorry. UGH. This sucks big time. Make sure you allow yourself to feel what you need to feel. Cry if you need to (I always needed to SOB). Then, pick yourself up and do something nice for you during this time okay? Go get a massage, a manicure or pedicure, go shopping. And renew your love for your DH - he will have a hard time with this too. Lean on each other. And when you are ready to try again, you can be sure we will all be right here rooting you on.
    I so wish the outcome would have been different! Such bullshit! Thinking of you. . .

  52. Get drunk. Thoroughly. Won't solve anything... but.... maybe a little "screw you... in ya face!!" is in order here. Praying for you. It WILL work out for you.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Shit, shit, shit. And fuck. This is not what was supposed to happen...so deeply sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm so sorry to hear that it didn't work. It is so tough after everything that you have been through but don't give up hope. Take a break, get drunk, eat junk and then get ready for the next round. I am confident that you will be successful next time. Keep positive x

    ReplyDelete
  55. Shit indeed. I'm gutted for you.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh I hate how clearly you can see the crap of it all when you put it in numbers.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Just started following you recently via May I think. I am so sorry. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together should be able to see that for someone doing IVF, things haven't been "easy" for a long time.

    Wishing you all the best.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Chin up, it's so so hard when it fails. I went through all of that 4 times before success, the first failure was the hardest, hadn't even entertained failure as an option and wasted some precious embryos in the process. For me it must be the English spirit, head down, focus on the goal, never accept defeat, just keep moving.. sending you lots of warmth from the desert. Z.

  59. I'm so sorry. I'm thinking about you-please take care of yourself.

  60. Wow... it really is. I'm sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh I'm so sorry! I know no words will help. But I hope you take the time you need to heal from this and come back out again on the other side ready to rejoin us.

    ReplyDelete
  62. WTF!This is totally shit..Never give up Liz, till you have your baby in your arms!Big hugs...

    ReplyDelete
  63. Oh sweetie, I am so very sorry. Look at all those that LOVE you and are rooting for you. I can't imagine how you are feeling. You are 200% right that IVF is no day at the beach and is hard, expensive and emotionally trying. I'm so very sorry.

    You will become a Mommy. You have to believe that. Something wasn't right and God wasn't ready for you yet. Your baby is waiting for you, I swear it!

    We love you and pray for you! Never give up Liz, NEVER!

  64. I'm so sorry, this is rubbish.

    ReplyDelete
  65. So sorry to hear your news. I will be thinking of you. Have a glass of wine and treat yourself to something nice. That is what I always did and it helped a little.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Damn. I'm so sorry to hear. :( I hope you have some good relaxing things planned for yourself.

I've resisted word verification for ages but I'm getting so many spam comments at the moment that I think it is time. Sorry!
