negative

The FRER made it official.

I had hope. I really did. And there were good signs--signs I've never had before. Thanks to all of you for keeping hope with me.

Now it's time to move forward and deal so I can get my mind ready for IUI#4.

I am just getting caught up on blogs today since I've been out of town since yesterday. I am so sorry about the BFN. I like your onward and upward attitude though!

Shit! I'm sorry Katie. I had a lot of hope. But you sound good and I hope you feel ok and are looking forward to luck #4. If you need anything this weekend text me. I think you mentioned Baby J's bday so if you want to vent I'm here. And if you want to borrow my flask text me tonight and I'll bring it tomorrow ;). Love you girly!

Katie - look, I don't want to give you hope but do you remember that I didn't get a (+) on a FRER until I was almost 6 weeks? I got incredibly faint positives on a cheapie and then I broke out the Clear Blue Easy Digital and got my BFP. I don't trust FRER's.
If AF doesn't make her appearance will you at least try w/a Dollar Store cheapie or a CBE Digital? Who knows, you might have a FRER aversion like me.

I'm so sorry about the BFN. I'm still here though, holding onto hope for you.

I have to agree with ifcrossroads. It ain't over til it's over. FRER's are good but they are still negative before they're positive, you know? If it does so happen that this is not the cycle, I do look forward to the next one with you. I always felt like there was a silver lining to bfn's which is a new start, even getting af was comforting in a small way because it meant i was healthy and ready to try again. I know it's small consolation sometimes I think it's better to get to move on than to be stuck in beta hell with a chemical or something like that and have the ultimate goal delayed that much further.

It sounds to me like you've got a great attitude about your dissapointing news. Fake it till you make it is my motto. I'll be thinking of you.

I'm so sorry! Its so hard - staying optimistic, but realistic and not getting hopes up all at the same time. Have a great weekend and prepare for the IUI. Hugs & Prayers
