When Normal Isn't Normal

The RE's office called today.

All bloodwork came back within normal range. I am normal. My husband is normal. What isn't normal is that being so normal we should have had a normal pregnancy and normal baby right now.

You know how you can say word until it has no meaning? Normal. Normal. Normal. There is no meaning.

I totally understand you here. I am wishing for something to come back abnormal at this point just so I can point at it and say "there! That's it!". Of course, I've had things come back abnormal and the retest comes back fine. It's such a tease.

I'm so sorry you haven't been able to get answers. It is so terribly frustrating and I just wish you didn't have to be here.

I second that motion- it's absolutely ridiculous, but I want a reason. Any reason, and the fact that my clinic can't seem to come up with anything is possibly the most frustrating problem I have ever experienced. And I feel for anyone else going through this!

Yeah. Normal is relative anyway- hence, it really doesn't mean much.

After our m/c, that's all I wanted - a reason. It's strange to hope that there's something wrong with you, but it at least might give us some kind of answer.

It's even stranger to say - I'm sorry they all came back normal. There's no rhyme or reason and makes it so much more unfair.

Oh this is SO where I am right now too. There's absolutely no friggin thing normal about us and our fertility, yet that "n" word is all we ever here too. ARGGH! I literally feel your pain and frustration here.
