Elmo made me cry...

Remember how Roxie posted a few weeks ago how IF pops up at times and slaps you in the face?  Well it happened to me...

I love The Barefoot Contessa (I.na G.artner) I dvr all her episodes.  Today is my 9/80 so I was catching up and there is an episode with Elmo.  Made me sad and emotional... sigh

I am AMA and all tests on H came back normal
3 failed IVF with OE and 2 failed frozen DE cycles
Last fresh hail mary DE cycle starting Feb 2013
PAIF/SAIF always welcome

Re: Elmo made me cry...

  • (((hugs)))  Finding IF in the most random of places is never fun and almost always emotional.

    I downloaded a book last week bc it was free and rec on a blog I follow.  I didn't look at what it was about bc I usually enjoy the books she recommends.  Big mistake.  IF and loss were a major focus of the storyline.

    Note to self, always read the description before diving in lol.

  • I think we need to give these moments a name, like AF has her "own" name. That way we can say that "X" visited today and we will all understand.
