Well, I have undergone four cycles of infertility treatments. The first Reproductive Endrocrinologist (RE) placed me on 300 unites of gonal-f injections anywhere from 7 days to 9 days; we tried these treatments three times and three IUI. In between, it was discovered that I had a blocked follopian tube. So I had tubual canalization. This was successful with regard to making the tube patent. I gave my body, mind and spirit a hiatus for a few months. Then, I was encouraged again, and I went for a second opinion with a different RE. We went for the big "guns": 225 units of gonal-f injections in the morning, and 150 units of menopur at night time. With this last treatment, I also injected ganirelix. I was given progesterone gel (crinone 8%), but, unfortunately, I was never told/instructed on when to apply the gel. Long story short, my period was an entire month late. Of course, I thought I was pregnant, so I had blood drawn to assess for beta HCG. I had four pregnancy tests - all were negative. The RE could not explain why. I was then ask if I ever applied the progesterone gel. I replied I was never told when and if to apply it. So, of course, I cannot help but wonder if I had had applied the gel, given the fact my period was one month late, could I had gotten pregnant? The unknown answer to this question still lingers in my mind. I can still undergo one more treatment, as I have enough medication. What do you think? Should I go for it? Or should I just let my mind, body and spirit rest, and put all my trust solely on God? But is God placing this thought in my heart? What is your gut feeling? Thanks!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
