Bring back the excitement and giddiness

Remember that feeling you got when you first started the ttc process. You felt so excited and giddy. The first Iui we went in for we were on top of the world. We felt as if our tww would last forever and that we would see a BFP soon. I remember that same day we went to B&N bookstore I was already looking at baby and pregnancy books and even wanted to purchase a couple. J was also very optimistic but she did convince me to wait on the purchase. We were just so hopeful at that time. Of course our bubble was burst after the first BFN and the second and third and so on. We so want to start our family soon and be given that ultimate gift. I am looking forward to getting started with IVF soon and hopefully regaining the hope, optimism, and excitement that our first IUI brought us.


  1. I'm also hoping this for you guys!! Here's to hoping for a quick start to IVF and then a start to your family.

  2. I know the feeling. Constant negatives make it feel hard to hold onto hope. BUT (aside from my history) I believe in IVF. It works so much more often than it does not--- quite the reverse stats from IUIs. IVF is scary at first but the excitement is coming. I have a very good feeling for you.

  3. I hear you. I was so excited for my first IUI, and then totally shocked and heartbroken when it didn't work. When we moved on to the medicated IUI, I relt a renewed sense of hope. Same with moving on to IVF. It's always reassuring to know that there is another option, another protocol out there. I hope IVF brings an end to your BFNs!
