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.
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!
It’s ok – I have many brain farts! The note about my chickens needing more time made me smile. Thank you 🙂
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.
Me too. Thank you for the strength ❤ I wish you the most amazing travels ever and hope the break does you both a world of good.
I hear you sister. There really is nothing worse than cycle day one. 😦
It will happen – when the stars align for it. In the meantime.. thank God for chocolate.
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.
Thank you for the thoughts – I’m going to drop you a note as I’d like to follow your fostering journey. It’s very inspiring.
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.
