Mourning the death of hope


This is my cat mourning the death of hope with me. She’s loyal and supports my cause.

We’re sitting together and reflecting on another failed cycle.

I opened Pandora's box and infertility entered my life.

  1. It’s amazing how animals sense our pain and send us comfort. So sorry for your failed cycle. I know how bad it hurts. Keep your kitty close!

    • I’m so grateful for their companionship – because really after a while even your real girlfriends become desensitised to your monthly gloom but cats.. cats you can you rely on.

    Oh no! I thought you had another week til you find out the result! So so sorry! 😦

    I just reread your last few posts and realized that it was a week until your appointment to make plans. Sorry I had a brain fart!

    I’ll be thinking of you and hoping that you’re able to derive some comfort at that upcoming appointment. I know it always helps me to feel like I’m ‘doing’ something – regardless of what that ‘something’ is. And maybe your lucky chickens just need a little more time to do their thing!


  4. The hope never goes away 100%, it will occasionally come out of retirement at irritating moments when you’d really rather it didn’t because hope is an asshat. Sorry that the cycle didn’t work x

    • The first day is always the worst, I’m pretty sure I’ll be dancing tomorrow when my hormones readjust and the hope of a new cycle kicks in. Oh the joys of TTC!

    I know this feeling well friend. It’s such a tightrope, and such a hard balance. Wishing niether of us had to be here, but thinking of you and sending you strength.

  6. Kristin says:

    I hear you sister. There really is nothing worse than cycle day one. 😦

    I’m sorry 😦
    My pets are some of my best supporters. Thinking of you.

    • I thought of you when I had to do a baby shower shop. I was arrrghhing. Plus I had to visit a heavily pregnant friend today. I figured if I faced it now, I could at least avoid the newborn baby visit.

      Oh and there’s another thought which reminded me of you but I’m going to leave it on your blog post 🙂

    I’m sorry, sweetie. Every failed cycle hurts a little worse than the last. Thinking of you.

    I’m so sorry sweetheart!! Furbabies are essential companions to have, especially while going through tough times. I know my kitties helped me a lot, and they were always there for me with unconditional love. I am sending you loads of virtual hugs and positive vibes for your next cycle! xx

Oh, what a power is motherhood, possessing
A potent spell. All women alike
Fight fiercely for a child.

~ Euripides, Iphigenia in Aulis, c. 405 B.C.
