Mixed Emotions, but Lots of Joy

This past week has been full of mixed emotions for me. I’m in the midst of the 2ww, and being it’s the first time we’ve done an injectable IUI cycle, I actually started out fairly hopeful (though losing it fast – isn’t that always the way?).

Also, two of my closest blog friends were in the 2ww with me, and both of them got BFNs last weekend. The disappointment just never gets easier, does it? Sending big hugs to manymanymoons & Amanda. Still praying for you both to get your babies soon… 

On the flip side, I’ve had FOUR bloggie friends in the past 4 days get BFPs after IVF. How freakin’ amazing is that?!! Congrats to:

Me and You, Just Us – Two – BFP Apr10 after IVF#1. TTC since Aug09. Endo.

Hope is a Four Letter Word – BFP Apr10 after IVF#1. TTC since Jan09 (anovulatory). 5 failed IUIs.
Melissa G @ Banking On It – BFP Apr9 after IVF#1. TTC since Aug07. Severe MFI, Ovulatory PCOS, MTHFR, elevated TH1, TH2 and Natural Killer cells. 6 unsuccessful dIUIs. 

Miss Mac @ MAC and PC – BFP Apr7 after IVF#1. TTC since July2005. 2 IUI BFNs.

Finally, Ceejay had her little boy!! She is one of the first bloggers whose journey I started following almost 18 months ago – I am so happy for her!! 

Ceejay @ half as many chances – Little boy Braxon Emory 4/9/11. TTC since July09 (hypothalamic amenorrhea)

So there ya go – my latest update. 😉 There have been lots of BFPs in the bloggy world lately – for an updated list of most of the ladies I follow, click on In My TTC Prayers up above. Let me know if I missed you and I’ll add you to the list!


  1. I have been thinking about you…I hope you are added to this list very soon 🙂

  2. You are such a wonderful bloggy friend, Josey. I also hope you are added to that list SOON (and me, too).xo

  3. I'm sending lots of thoughts, prayers, and hope your way!!! Praying that this is your month and that your little one is already snuggling in for a very happy and healthy 9 months!!!

  4. Been thinking about you during your 2ww and really hoping for things to work out for you! I know it is hard to hold onto that hope because we want to protect ourselves but at the same time we want to believe it will happen. But I say believe until there is reason not to! 🙂

  5. You are so involved with this blogging community!!!! I love how huge your heart is and how you genuinely are happy for everyone's happy BFPs. I'm so confident your time will come. It seems to be in the Spring-time air, but like you said, a lot of people seem to be having good news. I'm hoping you are one of them! 🙂

  6. It is your turn to be on that list next, my friend. Just know I am thinking of you often even though I have been distant in blogging. Stay strong! 🙂

  7. Hoping the rest of the tww flies by with you being added to the list of BFPs :)I know, I still hold those few bloggers that I started following 3 years ago close to my heart 🙂

  8. Gonna see you on that list soon. BFP!! Just say it over and over. 🙂 Try to keep up the hope girl! Its not over till its over. And by over I mean a BFP 🙂

  9. Yep, you'll be on that list very soon my dear! Hope the next few days go by quickly before you can test!

  10. I like what To those who Wait said about believing until there is reason not to and she is proof that IUI#1 can work! Thanks for being such a source of encouragement and support for so many here and we all hope to be celebrating with you soon!!!

  11. I am still pulling for you! I am looking forward to celebrating your good news. 🙂

  12. Try to keep up your spirits. I know the 2ww can feel like an eternity. I'll be back in the 2ww game soon enough…

  13. Wow, you keep track of a lot of girls!I am hoping so hard that you get your positive this cycle.

  14. Hang in there. I hope you are the next one to be announcing a BFP!!On a totally unrelated note, your intro on your blog says we are finally trying out first cycle instead of our. I just thought you may want to know.

  15. I've been thinking of you constantly this past weekend and wondering how you're surviving the 2WW. Things are crazy busy at work so I'm a little out of the loop blog wise for a few days, but I'm thinking of ya and holding out hope that this is your month. So excited about all of the BFP's. It seriously gives me chills.

  16. Thank you xo

  17. Big hugs! Hang in there!

  18. Like everyone else, I've been thinking of you a lot this week. Even McMister knows you're almost done with the 2ww!Is your hubby away or home now? If he's away, will you tell him over the phone and post the results here? Or will you wait and leave us all hanging? 🙂

  19. Wow! Congrats to all the ladies on the BFP and FIRST time with IVF. Thanks for adding me to the prayer list, you're a sweetie! Hopefully you're BFP is coming soon, prayers for you!!!

  20. If you have room for one more blog to follow I would love for you to add me!

  21. Thank you for posting this list of first-time IVF success stories! I was begining to feel like…well, you know. I'm in the 2WW with you…

  22. I really want your 2WW to be over. Can we speed this along?!?!

  23. I just saw this–so sweet of you to mention me! I am praying that we can add you to our list of bfps very soon.
