awful horrible weekend

Yesterday early morning our dog had either a stroke, seizure, or heart attack and passed away. We were home when it happened and I was a hysterical crying mess. Today I am calmer but yesterday and last night I was heaving and sobbing so hard I thought I would throw up. We are just devastaded! 
I'm concerned that this will or did effect implantation (yesterday was day 6 or 7dpo). What do you think?

Oh, honey. I'm sooo sorry. This weekend has not been good for project fertility ladies' dogs. My heart is aching for you. With everything else going on, it doesn't seem fair that you have yet another hurdle to get over.


With regard to your question, I'm sure that stress impacts every aspect of fertility. However, that should not discourage you at all. Your body is resilient. Just try to take some time for yourself to grieve but also get some sleep, make sure you're eating, etc. These things will only help to ensure that there's a comfy place for that embryo to implant. Hugs honey...

Oh NO!! I am soo sorry. I can not imagine what you are going through! I know how hard it is to loose a pet, but to have it happen in front of you....... I am just so sorry.


Good news though, I don't think that should cause any problems with implantation. My Dr said at that point there is almost nothing physical that could happen to cause a problem.

I'm so sorry about your dog, artlvr!! That can't have been easy to experience! :(. But I wanted to put your mInd at ease regarding it affecting implantation. During our IUI cycle (the one during which we conceived our twins), my dad was in the hospital. He had had a seizure and subsequent stroke 2 days before the first of our back to back IUI's and was not doing well in the hospital. Because I had subjected myself to all the injections and hormones and my ovaries were aching from being stimulated, we followed though with the IUI. But literally I would go to the RE's office at 7:00 in the morning, do the IUI, then drive straight to the hospital to deal with all that for 12 hours a day. I remember laying on the table after the second of the two IUI's asking the doctor if stress can affect conception. He said it can affect ovulation but not conception. I remember tearing up on the table being sick with worry about my dad. For the next two weeks I spent all day every day at the hospital watching my dad go through hell. I wasn't sleeping well, not eating well, and stressed beyond belief. The day after he was released from the hospital, I took a pregnancy test at home and it was positive. So despite the traumatic two weeks, those two babies made it. So don't worry about this affecting anything. It won't. Just take care of yourself! Hang in there honey! :(

Thank you all so much! This has been just horrible! We are devastated! Thanks Mikesgirl, I really appreciate your sweet words! Thanks Dana, Its been awful and I was very worried, I'm still hoping for a BFP! Tami, I had no idea about your pup, I'm so sorry. Give her lots of love and kisses as long as you can! I hope she gets better! Thanks Michelle, I was so scared this stress and physical reaction was going to effect implantation.  How is your Dad doing now? I hope much better! Hope your feeling good with those twins and I hope I follow in your footsteps with a BFP (twins would be great too). Thanks Futuremrs, today I lost it when I came home from work and he wasn't here. We are so sad. 


I feel so close to you all and yet you call me artlvr, which I am a complete Art Lover, but you all know so much about me, Way more than all our friends and family, I thought I would say I'm Emily. Thank you everyone for always being there for me!

Emily, I am new to this group, my name is Heather, but I wanted to say I am sorry about your dog.  We have 3 dogs and they are family. 


I lost my cat last summer and I know how hard it is.  I was so upset but I needed to do something so we took Morgan's litter box, left over food, and cat carrier to a local non kill shelter and donated them.  I also made my husband stop at the store and we bought another bag of food and treats.  We drove this to the shelter and I made the donation in Morgan's name.  For some reason it really did help. 


Take the time to grieve your pup but know he is in Heaven looking down on you.


(We knew we wouldn't get another cat as the dogs like to chase cats).
