Closing Up Shop

I think most people have figured this out, but this blog has gone down. At least I won't be posting here anymore...why would I? We're certainly not doing any LastChanceIVFs anymore.

Thank God for that.

IVF can be a soul-sucking money-sucking sanity-sucking procedure. It can also be a hope-laden miracle worker, but it wasn't for us. Some days I still can't believe I did five but oh well.

Yes, I wrote that: oh well.

It's fully in the past now. Someone recently wrote a sweet post about how our IVF video was inspiring to them, to which I had to wonder: how could anyone feel inspired by that? We failed. Over, and over, and over, and over, and one more time: over. But I guess it didn't kill us, right? We're certainly still here, alive and kicking and smiling.

So yeah, I'm so over IVF, snark. Which means I'm done posting here on the LastChanceIVF. But the posting itself--well, you guys know it saved me.

Thanks for reading, and supporting, and commenting, and holding me up over here. I really mean that. And I know international adoption isn't everyone's thing, but I hope you'll keep following the story and update your readers, etc. etc. at MyTwoLines. I'll be commenting as MyTwoLines, too, duh, as I continue to follow your stories.

So long, from the LCs.

  6. With our struggles and failings, 'how many do we do' is commonly a questioned asked by us and others. We don't know. People tell us to put a max and 'move on' after that-but how can one do that? I admire your strength and your marriages strength for getting through 5. I love that you found an answer with adoption and can't wait to see how your story unfolds and ends in love!!!

  9. So so so happy you're DONE as the LC's!!! So excited about MyTwoLines :) I will certainly be reading. As far as finding your IVF video inspiring...it most certainly is! It clearly shows that while it was tough you & Mr LC never lost your true selves. No matter what you moved forward TOGETHER. Not a lot of people or marriages can say that. :) Congratulations again!

  16. I was one of those who felt inspired by your IVF videos, not because of the end result because we all know we cannot control it, but by the way you handled your journey. It takes a special kind of person who can smack the ups/downs of life with smiles and courage. You inspire me in more ways than one. Esp since I have 5 IVFs with no success, not even a single double line once. I'll continue to follow your new blog and wish you the best in your next half of the marathon ..

  23. The first that thing that couples should do, even if they have the faintest doubt regarding a fertility related issues, is to consult a specialist who will be able to understand their problem and guide them through so that problem is rectified and they are able to conceive.

  25. What a shame to hear that your IVF procedures weren't successful. I took this test called the E-tegrity test that sees how receptive your body would be to the IVF treatment, possibly determining its success. It let me know that I wouldn't have success with an IVF treatment. I highly recommend it. http://www.etegirtytest.com for more info!

  26. Most of the women have to face lot of troubles when they conceive a child. If you go through a research you will find that most of the married women have been experiencing lot of problems in their married life due to this. They have to face the disappointment for many numbers of months as they are not able to conceive the child. If someone has recommended you to make a visit to fertility clinic then you should definitely consider that option.
