Most of us have been trying for 12 months or more and we have been through every up and down imaginable.

Mine was good, lots of food, not a day goes by though I don't think about babies, I also think I'm strong but that all changes when I see a preggers belly or a happy child & mummy playing and laughing, my heart aches enormously to have that.
