Sentimental Saturday...

Another unsuccessful cycle. Not that I am surprised or even devastated. I didn't even cry this time (which is a surprise of itself). Do I give up? No. Do I lose hope? No. Do I stop praying and believing that God cares? No!

I found this verse while working on my bible study this week:
Psalm 113:9
He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.

So, should K and I keep on trying? Yes. Most importantly, am I a day closer to being a mommy today than I was yesterday? Yes! (Praise ye the Lord)

I can SO relate to having those feelings at the end of an unsuccessful cycle. I remember frequently being surprised at the ones where I didn't cry, too. But the end of a cycle was also the beginning of a new one, and a new chance.

That scripture in Psalms my sister wrote on a card to me in beautiful calligraphy and told me to put it somewhere I could see it. Even if it was through adoption, this promise was for me.

They have a forum for "High FSH" and "IVF and High Tech" where I believe I've seen women with FSH's like yours that did IVF (and possibly succeeded). Different doctors have different cutoffs for treatment or shared risk, you may want to talk to some ladies on there, at least for encouragement. I'm sorry about your news....
