Vignettes

I dreamt the same thing twice in one night last week. In my dream, I was thirty-some weeks pregnant and needed to be induced early for some medical reason. We were sure that I and the baby would be fine, and we were excited to meet our little one. Each time, I woke from the dream to remember: my belly was swollen not with child but with hyperstimulation post-transfer. Still, it was a nice dream, and I hoped it boded well for our embryos.

******************************************

Our house has a detached garage, with a disheveled, rusty basketball hoop mounted above the garage door. Birds have built their nest in the space between the hoop's backboard and the garage wall. This morning, as I stepped through the garage door to go to the car and leave for my beta appointment, I noticed something near my feet. The small, broken body of a baby bird. It's still there now. I'll ask Aaron to take care of it when he gets home from work; I don't think I could bear it.

******************************************

Words from a song I listened to as I drove to the clinic:

So I lay down what I cannot hold in my hands
Every sorrow and hope spinning out of control
And here I find sweet resolution comes in letting go
And we will find shelter here

******************************************

Results: Negative.

So very tired of bad news.

My heart is so heavy; I feel a burden so much heavier than I ever exected. I knew if the results were not what you wanted, I would be sad for you. I did NOT expect that my body would instantly be wracked with sobs, to the point where my husband ran in the room and asked if we'd received news of a death in the family.

Wordlessly I turned the screen toward him: result negative

He says 'honey...you haven't seen this girl since high school, and even then you said you barely spoke twice. Why are you THIS upset?'

He is not insensitive...he just hasn't seen me cry more than two or three times in all the years we've been married.

I just feel so bereft, broken, and sad for you.

I am praying still. Lord, heal this childless mother's heart.

I'm so very sorry for your BFN. I just finished my first IVF and it too was BFN. They totally suck monkey's butt!

Gentle hugs to you.
