    Well, AF showed up today. I know this probably sounds really weird, but we've been trying for over 5 years now (and I'm sick of disappointment and loss....) so I've decided to go about this a different way. Since I miscarried in September, I've decided that by October of 2012, if we are not pregnant or have a baby, that I deserve a "consolation prize". We're going to get an English Bull Dog Puppy! Since I can't seem to get what I really want, I'll get something that I'd really like. This means (to me) that even though it emotionally (and physically) hurts EVERY time AF comes around, at least I'm closer to A goal. Does this make any sense?

    It totally makes sense Jenna But I am sorry that AF keeps showing up. Its so easy to get discouraged and it can be sooooo stressful when you keep trying and nothing happens. Have you tried IUI yet? I know some of the ladies on here have gone that route. It is expensive but I don't think it is as much as IVF. Don't give up on your dream to have a baby, it can happen for you and it will be even better because you will know how much it means to you! Thinking of you and sending you hugs and baby dust!!!!

    Let us know when you get your little english bull dog puppy!! they are such cute dogs!!
