It's still empty. Our "hail mary" cycle didn't work and we did not get pregnant. I felt like the cycle went really well and that I responded well to the meds, which got my hopes up really high. By the time I could start testing at home, I had myself convinced that it had worked and I was pregnant. So when I discovered that it hadn't worked, I was crushed. I took this unsuccessful cycle really hard. As in, I ate a bajillion cookies, cried a lot and watched Friends for a few days straight.
Another reason why I took this failed cycle so hard, was that it was the last chance at getting pregnant before we hit the 5 year mark of trying. We started trying in June 2010 and here we are, five years later, still with empty arms. It hurts so much. I can't even really explain how much it hurts. Unless you have been here, you cannot know.
So since I have done such a good job at over sharing our journey up to this point, I thought you only deserved to know what is going on. We are currently on a treatment break for the summer and are taking these three months to enjoy each other, enjoy the nice weather and do some serious thinking on what our next steps should be. I will continue to update you guys as I feel comfortable doing so, but in the meantime, we appreciate all thoughts and prayers sent our way! And if anyone sends cookies, I'd appreciate those too.
