Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

IUI # 3 is a bust


This one fucking hurts. I have had some strange feelings the last few days and really got my hopes up. E was convinced this was our cycle and kept telling me he had a good feeling.

I woke up this morning anxious to test at 4:30am but before I could even dip the stick into my tiny cup of pee I knew we were out. I was spotting. I tested anyways since it was just an internet cheapie and of course it was negative.

I am heartbroken. We got pregnant on our third IUI with G and I thought for sure it wouldn’t take LONGER the second time around. I don’t even know what to do now. We are swimming in debt and our insurance pays a small portion of the procedures but only for 3 IUI’s. We have to have 6 failed IUI’s before we can move to IVF through insurance so what the fuck do we do now? Take a few months off and wait till our house sells so we wont be paying 2 mortgages AND infertility bills? Jump right into another cycle? I am seriously at a loss and just want to curl up in a ball and cry.

  1. 😦 That truly sucks. And overwhelming.

  2. Oh man, I am sorry it didn’t work out. You have a lot on your plate. Maybe it’s best for you emotionally and financially to clear away the debt and enjoy the holidays as a family of three before resuming treatments? Because who f*cking needs a BFN or a MC during the holidays when you already have enough to worry about? Right? Enjoy them with your little–they are only little once. And hopefully everything will line up in the new year and TTC will be much less stressful. Hugs. XOXO

  3. I’m so sorry. 😦 why is it always so hard!?
