  • CD1 eh

    Just finished reading the walking dead compendium 1. Love seeing how it compares and contrasts to the show.

  • CD18 - Waiting for the "Curse"

    QOTW: Last book I finished was THINspired by Mara Schiavocampo. I rarely finish books I start. I get 3/4 through a book and then stop reading. It took everything to finish the Hunger Games.

    I think there are a lot of lurkers who don't feel comfortable chiming in on where they are in their cycle. That's my guess though. I feel I use this medium as my sounding board and to be able to relate to others. I don't feel so alone when I can communicate on this board, as opposed to not being able to talk about it with my family openly (Mom, Sister, etc.). They just don't understand, as they have never had to deal with anything I'm going through, so they can't relate to my experiences.

  • I wish more people would chime in, it' comforting knowing I'm not alone. Sometimes people don't get it because I have a child they assume I should be happy with her, which believe me I am, but nothing hurts like wanting another child and not being able to have that. I know my daughter will make the bestest big sister one day I just wish that day was sooner than later. There are days I'm ok with just having 1 and I love being able to focus 110% on her but my heart wants another. I feel like I have so much love to give.
  • Ahhh, I hear ya. Everyone on this board has a little one(s) and is trying for another. You're def not alone and you're not the only one having those same thoughts/feelings. <hugs>

  • CD39. Waiting for my cycle to start, but I'm still dealing the a cyst so I have no idea when that will be. I'm frustrated, as usual. I wish they would remove the cyst. My 40th birthday is only 6 months away and I've made that my make or break point, so being stuck in limbo is agonizing.

    I think the last book I read was a James Patterson novel. I love the Alex Cross series, but I don't read much these days. I'm usually too exhausted after my DS goes to bed.

    crazypt2855 I totally understand. I'm forever grateful that I was able to have my son, but it hurts so much to know I might not get the change to have another child. Hearing people tell me how lucky I am is like a punch in the gut sometimes. Especially when it comes from people with 2-3 kids. They just don't understand. Good luck!

    Cycle status:  I just stopped birth control pills on Monday to prepare for my first IVF cycle, so I would anticipate Cycle Day 1 to be either today or tomorrow.  I start stims on Saturday.

    QOTW: the last book I read was "A Little Life" by Hanya Yanagihara.  It was very depressing and tough to get through!  I am in a book club and our next pick is much more light hearted, so I am looking forward to that!

    I also wish there was more activity on this board.  I have not posted on the Infertility board because I do feel badly having 2 children and posting about trying for another.  So hopefully this board picks up at some point!
