IT'S OVER.

The results from our test this morning came back negative. Dr. A wants R to discontinue taking the progesterone supplements so she can expel, ie, have a period. This is terribly upsetting, but not surprising given the events of the last week.

We're taking a month off, at least, and we're thinking we'll try again over Christmas break; that is, if we're up to it. In the meantime, the doctor wants R to take Ovcon 35 Oral, which is a type of birth control, I think. She'll also take Letrozole Oral, a medication more commonly known to treat breast cancer, when we start trying again.

For now, we just need time to cope and process this.

I am so sorry to hear that. We are feeling the same as well. We have tried 4 IUI and we are still not pregnant. We are taking a two month break and we will try again. I just try and have faith everyday and believe that it will happen when its supposed to. Keep your faith and keep going.

I know how much stress you both have been through this past month or so. I am upset to hear the news. I have been checking in with your blog often to see what kind of updates yall had, and I was thinking of you both often. At least you have a definite answer now. I think I want this for you both as much as you do! :o) Keep your heads up, take care of yourselves and keep trying!
