Alzora- Thanks for the update. It sounds like you are keeping an open heart about all options and I think it's wonderful. I'm sorry to hear about you being sad lately. I wish I could offer some magical advice, but all I can say is feel your feelings. That seems to be the best way through to the other side of them. (Drinking can also help too!) Thinking of you and hoping the very best, knowing it will come when the time is right.Mother of Harold Jonathan, nn Hal

@Alzora, I wish we could have a slumber party with ice cream and stupid television. I'm sorry you're feeling sad. As much as it doesn't help, it's natural to be bummed. It's been a long road.
I've got an appointment with the fertility specialist in Dallas. He's not upping my Clomid this month. He feels that everything went perfectly. It just didn't "stick" last time. I'm really, really thankful that my husband is looking past the financial struggles (especially since he's a numbers guy) and looking at how important this is to me. TTC can and does tear a lot of relationships apart. It has been a long 16 months of TTC, and I'm falling in love with my husband even more with how strong he is through it all.mamacravings.com

Casilayne, so lovely to hear how you appreciate your husband. Mine has also been a tower of strength lately and goes out of his way to care for me.
Alzora, I'm so sorry to hear that you are feeling so sad. Ttc is a big deal and it has been going on a long time for you. I don't think it's uncommon what you are going through. One tends to be brave over and over and over until you get to a stage of being over being brave (if that makes sense). It's good that you will be under your DHs insurance soon. It might be worth visiting your doctor and letting he/she know what's going on. If you're feeling depressed it could be a number of factors and they may be able to help. Also, is there anyone at your church you may be able to have a chat with. (Someone you know and trust, but ia not too emotionally involved)
Regarding my symptoms, the ones stand out and are not common at all are the cramping and large amount of CM. Headaches I have from time to time but have had more than usual.
Nessie, sorry you didn't get your positive OPK, hopefully soon.Mumma of 3 Angel babies, Lani (my heavenly flower), Charlie (my free little one) and Brennan (my brave teardrop) xxx

@Nessie, I hope ovulation comes on time for you. That can be such a frustrating wait.
@Casi, I'm so glad to hear that your husband is behind you 100% on this. Thank God for loving husbands!
@Nowakasia, Frances, Casi, and Frangipani, thank you so much for your support. Yesterday when my husband got home from work, holy moly...the floodgates opened up. He came into our bedroom and saw me lying on the bed and could tell that something was wrong, so he sat on the edge of the bed to talk to me and I just completely lost it. Convulsing, sobbing, big stupid wet tears, couldn't breathe. But my husband (on top of being an extremely loving and doting husband) has a master's degree in counseling and works as a therapist for troubled teenagers, so he knows just what to say and how to say it, and it was comforting just to be in his arms. Instead of trying to calm me down, he encouraged me to keep sobbing until I could sob no more. Later that night we went to the home of some good friends (not from our church, @Frangipani, but Christian friends who go to another awesome church in the area and share our beliefs...always helps to talk to someone with the same worldview) and we opened up to them about our struggles. Needless to say, I cried a little bit again, and it is now about 6:30 AM here and I've already cried again this morning. I didn't sleep well...kept waking up feeling distraught. I wish I could report that I feel better, but alas, I do not. I'm sorry to be such a persistent downer on this thread...I'm not having any fun with this TTC game anymore. I feel like I've turned a corner and TTC just got far more serious and hopeless. When my period arrives on Monday or Tuesday--and I have every indication that it will, but hope and pray that it doesn't--we will officially have tried for one full year and earned ourselves the medical title of infertile.Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in glorious light.
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.
