Operation Jellyman Kelly: Heart-break for Valentines Day

DISCLAIMER: Any blog posts titled "Operation Jellyman Kelly" will no doubt gross you out. These posts will describe our current treatments for if you have a weak stomach or don't know how you'd have a conversation with me in person after reading this....stop reading now. ; )


We didn't even get to the 17th.

My natural cycle came with a vengeance today.

This IUI is a fail.

I wish I could say we're totally fine because we half-expected this wouldn't work....

but the other half of us that did expect this to work...that hoped and prayed and dreamed it would...isn't totally fine.

We're heart-broken.

It was a first step in the right direction, but it still hurts like hell.

We know we're still getting good thoughts and prayers sent our way but I think I can safely speak for my husband when I ask that we not be asked about this failed cycle.  We're strong people, but sometimes it's too hard to talk about, especially if you haven't been in our shoes. 

Right now we're just sad.  Disappointed.  Pissed.  Depressed.

I don't want any of that unleashed on anyone.

Tomorrow I'll be calling Dr. T's office and finding out if we can move directly into another IUI cycle (we have to try IUI 3 times before insurance will allow us to try IVF) and scheduling 3rd day labs for insurance purposes since this cycle was a bust. 

Happy Valentine's Day to us.  =(


  1. GF, I'm still a woman trapped in a man's body, and now officially unemployed. How is that for my Valetine's Day:( Tomorrow I have an appointment with all my comfort food friends:) Remember, "I am woMAN!!! Hear me ROAR!!!"

  2. Thanks so much Mom and Dad. Love you both.

    And Dad...I find it slightly wonderful that you believe you're a woMAN trapped in a man's body. ; )

    But I am sorry to hear that you're officially unemployed. =(

  3. You're the BEST!!! Sending lots of LOVE!!!
