your thoughts and prayers

Thanks to everyone who had put happy thoughts and thoughtful prayers out there for the possibility that this was the month for the conception of our second child. Unfortunately, it is not.

My friend came to visit today, 3 days late. Based on the way I feel and the timing, we believe this was another failure to implant. We are moving on to cycle 16. UGH!

In the future, I will probably keep my symptoms to myself and just announce the good news when it happens.

Excuse me while I go sulk for a while.

  1. Linda I know some others who like you had a harder then usual time getting pregnant and eventually they did. You know when it was though that they got pregnant? When they weren’t planning and trying anymore. That’s right, at this point they had given up trying. Many say when you don’t think about it, don’t worry about it and don’t plan for it, it will happen. Take some time for you and Joe just to enjoy each other and have some fun with each other, it will happen. Huggs!

  2. Just enjoy this time Linda and it will happen when the timing is all right and you least expect and it…like right in the middle of the move or something along those lines…..but just know my thoughts are with you. Just relax and enjoy what you are blessed with now.

  3. ~sigh!~ Maybe a BIG squishy HUG/KISS to the one you have might be in order? I am sending one to YOU and yours and he. {I have been there and it hurts. When you least expect it, if IT is meant to be it will be!}I am sorry.

  4. I am so sorry Linda. My prayers are with you for this next time; may Hashem quickly bless you with a healthy child. I pray by this time next year you are posting with complaints about lack of sleep and the last time you actuall showered!

    Hugs my friend. Wish it could be more than virtual.

  5. Sorry, Linda. I had been keeping my fingers crossed. Still, for the next month you can act like irresponsible teenagers again and that’s a lot of fun. In fact, you might just want to go parking. . .

    I agree with Sweet, by the way. We found out my wife was pregnant with our second the same week we were due to close on the sale of our apartment and the purchase of our house. Maximum tension.

  6. I will definitely pray for you. Things will work out and that baby will sure be lucky! You are very pretty by the way, it’s nice to see a photo of you. πŸ™‚

  7. You are all so wonderful. Thank you so much for your comments, personal emails and continued good thoughts and prayers.

    It’s very hard not to intellectualize this. And, honestly, Ari was conceived when we stopped trying the last time. So, you all might have a point there.

    Sometimes I think it’s a good thing because I LOVE spending my time with Ari, I can’t imagine having to share that with one more person. But, it will be when it’s meant to be.

    I think our next couple of months are compromised since Joe will be so far out of town we will hardly see each other. But, as of October, he is home for good! Woo hoo!

    Thanks again for being so supportive. I really appreciate it. Be on the lookout for a happy announcement at some point in the future.


  8. I’m sorry Linda, I know how much you want to have another baby. I don’t have any advice, but I do have support. πŸ™‚

    As an aside, there was a study done on the correlation between couples who have to spend time apart (business travel and things like that) and the male production of sperm. It showed that when males are away, because they are thinking of getting back home they generate more sperm. When they connect with their SO again, their ejaculation is much larger and contains more sperm. So who knows, the time apart might be what y’all need. πŸ˜€
