If you feel discouraged that there's a lack of color here...

Yesterday I tested with an Equate and yet another IC. They were both BFNs, which is not terribly surprising. I won't lie, I cried. I was just so ready for 2011 to be a banner year. To start off the year with a bang. Alas, it was not meant to be (I love using the word "alas').

So, I cried. I mourned this IUI cycle that wasn't meant to be. I cried for me and for Buster, and for our dreams being broken, yet again. I am determined to force my RE into giving me injectibles for this upcoming cycle. I want two or three follies, dammit. And I will not rest until I have them!

Buster did a great job of comforting me, and we had a wonderful evening of cuddling on the couch and watching Chopped. I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and ready to face the next cycle. I realize that AF is still 3 or 4 days out, but I am fully prepared for her to arrive. And if she doesn't, lovely. But she will.

I am long overdue in posting a cute puppy picture. If you recall, we gave my MIL a puppy for Christmas. Her name is Lulu. Here is a photo she sent me recently of Lulu sleeping. The body of the email said, simply, "Thank You!"

Today's post title is from the song "A Lack of Color" by Death Cab for Cutie. <3

  4. First off I love the puppy pic. I needed that after reading your post. My heart hurts for you and all the other women dealing with IF.
    I think its always harder to get a bfn after having treatment done and that it didnt work. Im glad youre feeling better. Hugs!

  5. Kara, I am so sorry this IUI cycle didn't work for you. I know how heartbreaking it is going through all of that just to be knocked back down. I hope your dr. considers injectibles and figures out what works for you.
    Thanks for linking to my website I really appreciate it! Love the pup pic and LOVE that song :)

  12. Sorry about the negative news, but you're outlook is clearly positive. I am a brand new follower from ICWL and I am so very hopeful to follow your journey to a BFP and beyond. :-)

  13. It's taken me a while to comment. I still don't really know what to say since I thought this cycle was the one for you. I agree with everyone else. Don't count 2011 out yet. There are great things to come, even if they haven't started to peak over the horizon just yet. <3 you so much.

  14. So sorry about the bfn, it's definitely important to take some time to mourn before moving forward. Hope you get to convince your RE to move on to injects and I hope 2011 is your year!
