If at first you don't succeed...

you try, try, try, and yes, try again.

And so we will. We will pursue the 5th and final IUI. After that, another meeting with the RE to discuss moving on to IVF.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers yesterday. I cried, but it wasn't the same meltdown that I had anticipated or experienced in months past.

Most Part of me is just really tired.
Tired of the disappointment.
Tired of the meds.
Tired of living my life in 2 week increments.

I know, I choose to continue on. But I certainly didn't ask to be put on this path to begin with.



  1. 5 must be the magic number, I cannot tell you how many people have had 5. I so hope that #5 is your magic #

  2. I am so sorry. It is a difficult road to travel but I remain optimistic about number 5 and I do BELIEVE that you will have success in the near future. ((Hugs))

  3. Totally get what you are saying...I am starting my injections today for IUI #3. I am not looking forward to it and the only word I can describe about this process is TIRED (too). I never ever imagined my life to turn out like this, but I will continue to have hope and you should too! Best wishes #5

  4. Does this mean AF has come? If so I'm sorry ali! Ill keep praying!

  5. Uh I'm so sorry Alison! I had been away and I was hoping there would be a happy ending here. Hopefully there will be, soon. (((HUGS)))

  6. Ugh :/ I'm so sorry Alison. I was hoping and praying that this would be your month. You'll be in my thoughts!!!

  7. Oh Alison, I am so sorry to read this post. It sounds to me like you need a spa day where you can just let yourself be tired and taken care of. hang in there.

  8. I must say deciding about whether or not to proceed with IUI #5 was the hardest decision for me so far.
    Fingers crossed for your cycle!

  9. I'm so sorry Ali. So,so sorry.
