Why the hell do people who are supposed to be your friends turn around around and announce they are frigin 13 weeks pregnant to you in front of 10 people so your put in a position to make a big deal out of it instead of telling you on your own. Then in the next breath say oh and how is the IVF going, I guess it's not working... WTF???? Way to ruin my night and I was so looking forward to doing my gingerbread house....

Oh no sorry that I posted twice!! should've just added it to the original, duh!! Did I stuff up the medal placings!!? blink.gif sorry sorry sorry !!!

Betts - yes you can do this!! (repeat a hundred times a day as needed!!) Chin up girl x

Leebec - your friend at work sounds like an insensitive t*at. I'm so sorry hun. I can't believe some people are just nasty like that. Do you have much to do with her at work or can she be avoided? Let's hope she has rotten morning sickness and stays away lots ... unsure.gif I know it's so upsetting but don't hold it inside, let it out, and try to stay relaxed and positive in yourself, coz you are going to make your own little miracle soon!! I hope you get to enjoy your gingerbread house making. There's a gorgeous one on the cover of this month's Gourmet Traveller, have you seen it? Big hugs to you hhugs.gif

She is not a friend from work she is one of my friends I have been friends with for years so should know better. Her 1st turned 1 in October so she has had 2 in the time we have been trying. Just brilliant. Was upset more cause my best friend knew and didn't say anything so at least I could process it on my own time.

Leebec - Some people have absolutely no filter. Because they haven't had the struggle, they have no idea what you would be feeling but you think someone who is a close friend would be sensitive to your situation.

Betts - Relax, you are allowed to have a few hours to yourself to recharge, don't feel guilty, make the hubby help!!! LOL

Hi everyone else - sorry I haven't been around much, been really busy and havent really been coping but feel like I can't complain when you lovely ladies aren't having a great time either

Well 1st cycle of Clomid didn't seem to work. BFN - CD28 today. Haven't got any period type pains or even feel like she is coming. I just want to be able to start my next cycle.

Also went to a counsellor this morning, gosh I'm feeling positive about stuff.

#12 leebec

Posted 04 December 2011 - 06:42 AM

It looks as if we are on to our FET cycle which will at least be a double. I won't be doing that too Jan or Feb so looks like no 2012 bub for us. Had my big cry & sulk yesterday. Still a bit upset but what can you do. At least I have my job interview to look forward to.

I am going to ask the FS if there is a possibility that something is wrong with my uterus as a result of the D&C and that's why nothing is implanting.

I think I will be going away for a while from here.

#13 Kate128

Posted 04 December 2011 - 06:52 AM

Ah - sorry I misunderstood your story Leebec. Yes it would nice if your best friend had told you first!! Perhaps she wasn't sure what to do....Anyway I hope you are feeling a bit better today. I'm really sorry that must have been so upsetting. I know exactly about how you feel about people reproducing without even trying or meaning to while (in our case) we have been trying for two years too. Also I'm sorry about the BFN. Big hugs to you. Try not to be to hard on yourself. I know it must be so awful having to wait until next Jan or Feb - we'll be in the same boat if this FET doesn't work. With Christmas and the new job etc maybe time will fly by. You've always been so positive and supportive here so I wish I could say something helpful for you.... thinking of you, sending lots of love. xxx

Hi Hoping - have been wondering how you're going. I'm sorry you're not feeling great at the moment - then I wasn't sure if your comment at the end was sarcastic or sincere! unsure.gif

Betts -I'm on the 'lie on the couch' side. original.gif

Hi to everyone xx

Hoping, I think you're entitled not to go if you can possibly get out of it!! Unless you think you can 'perk up' and act cheery and happy etc etc, I'd stay home.... sometimes it just costs us too much to put on the mask. Be kind to yourself foremost - especially at the moment - sounds like you need some TLC hun. xx

Satay - yay for you putting up the tree and YAY for finishing work soon. I too am counting down the days. I finish on 18 Dec, so 2 weeks to go. I think I must try and do some cards and stuff this week and organise the menu with my inlaws....

Hi girls,
I have come and gone and come and gone but would like to be part of this group if i can original.gif
DH (43) & I (27) have been trying since 2008 and we are told we are unexplained.  
Our FS has offered us IVF commencing January.
Its a tough time of the year and just though a support group might be a good thing.
I have ready your posts in the past (and on this thread) and i sympathise completely.
Like everyone i have my good days and my bad.
Hope to keep in touch a little better than i have in the past here original.gif
Thanks,
Laura

Hi bettinae and ladies waves.gif
Our FS has recently advised us that it would be a good idea to begin IVF in Jan which we are really unsure about.  I am actually angry in some ways that we are going to have to use our house deposit to fund getting pregnant (and still no guarantees) when there are other people popping them out like no ones business (obviously you cant put a price on what we all want but it is annoying we have to pay for it IYKWIM)
So yeah thats about it for us- we are in limbo!
Heading to Bali for Xmas so that will be nice and I am going to see a traditional village healer while im there (might be nonsense but also may not be original.gif
hope you are all doing ok

Hey Poad - How you matey??  So good to have you here so we can help you through all this crappola...
I so know what you mean, the costs involved in assisted are full on hey but as you said, if you are unsure about going ahead in January you don't have to, maybe you need some more time to think things through and then go from there.
So good to hear you are going to Bali, time to rest up and have a lovely time.

Fairey - Satay is Mr G's fav food - heaps yum hey.  Although I am missing Fi xxx!
As for US - Probably just California / Nevada again but this time more for a rest rather than heaps of driving.  Definately need a holiday after such a shat year...
Hope you are well hun...xx

AFM - WANT THIS YEAR OVER!!!  2012 is going to be OUR year girls....
