    Hi Sunshinebell, I'm glad you have been 'inspirate'ed' (sorry couldn't help myself I'm a big MKR fan and think Jenna is fab) by this thread. Before this there was also No. 1&2. if you want some more reading as we've been around for a long time . To be honest I don't come in here very often anymore but I'm like an old Mother Hen keeping an eye on her chicks. I just have to pop in here every now an then to make sure everyone is ok.
    I'm on a different journey at almost 43 (my husband is 44 tomorrow) but really and truly wish you the best of luck. I hope you get a BFP soon.
    Sarah

    hi to anyone posting in here! hi to sunshinebell..its your posted that made me feel like posting for the first time in...hmmmm dont know..m6 months? maybe 8 or 9? not sure really...

    my DP and i were TTC for about 5 months, then struck some relationship problems. weve been together for 18yrs in April. and have been having a 'break' so to speak for 4 months now..but about to give it another go. too many dramas in the last few years which made life difficult..and TTC last year i think pushed us over the edge! so now were about to start TTC again. Im 38, he's 44.. no issues with fertility that we know of. initial tests say were both ok. but have been referred to fertility clinic anway by my lovely GP as she feels theres no time to lose! got that appt on 10/4. bit nervous about it actually.

    so perhaps popping in here every so often will help calm the nerves : )

    Thanks Welsh Mummy ... its actually the HerveyBay couple that im inspirated by ... love watching them. Its the Qldander in me! Anti SunnyCoast siblings though! There was no way i could root for the wa pair.

    Thanks Juniper74. Dealing with infertility can take its toll on relationships. Things changed for us once we really individually dealt with it. Long road, but knowing that we have also been able to dream a life for 2 (its a good way to put it welsh mummy) and explore and discover things in the last few years we had never imagined was the key for us.
    We have done things never thought we'd do in a lifetime and are very open to going with where life roads take us. Before it was work to have money for family, must have house for family, ... everthing was about setting up for family. We can do that again if a little miracle comes our way but i guess we are more selfish now. We make decisions on if we dont have kids what do we want to have experienced in life. I think before we gave some of those dreams being 'responsible' to set our family up for the future. Does that make sense? It was our way of finding positives in life to counteract the biggest negative of all.

    When my hubby asked me last year did we want to give ivf one last few goes(he says 4 i say 3) i knew we had to. I always felt like in the past it was me who was the driver (arranging everything) dont get me wrong we both wanted it but i felt the weight was on me.the most beautiful thing to me was when i said yes.. but i cant deal with the weight if it all. ..... i arrived home one day and he'd made the inquiries, make a consultation. Did all the costings. Said ill look after it this time babe.
    That meant alot as he seen the toll it took on me when we went down theis road before.

    Now im in a jam as im trying to keep two dreams alive ... the one if our mracle happens ... and the road of a life for two. Well actually 3 , the dog thinks she's a child.

    Juniper.. do you think it was the dealing with infertility that has caused your relationships probs?

    I know it's hard when you see Sir Richie with kids and think he missed out but boy did you both strike it rich when you met each other. Health, love and happiness is the truest blessing. Well that's what I keep telling myself anyway. It will be three years since we lost our darling girl on Australia Day and three days after that will be her birthday. I'm trying not to get sad but as what as become the norm AF is due on Australia Day so hormones are a little wacky.
    It has been a long time coming but our house will be on the market in a week or so and when it sell we will be officially homeless, well that is until Andrew builds our new home, lol. We have a few options, the caravan park down the road at the beach the one way or the caravan park down the road at the beach the other way, . We will live in the Kombi and the tent, pmsl.
    I start a new school tomorrow. I forced the department to move me as the psycho who is head of special needs at my old school was not getting any better. She was even cutting my stuff up!!! My new school will be much better with no stress and for the first time in many years they have found me one where I can be full time and not spilt across schools.
    As for TTC, it is never going to happen for us unless we at least try some IVF, which incidentally Andrew is open to now but that won't be possible until we build the new house. If Andrew had said this a year ago I would have jumped for joy but would you believe I turned him down! I'm 43 in a few months and have been on the TTC wagon for 10 years, I truly believe we have been through enough emotionally and physically and am too scared to even consider trying again. We are at a point in our lives where we are both happy, healthy and very soon will have little or no mortgage. I want us to both enjoy that. That seems awfully selfish but I am comfortable with my decision.
    Ok essay writing over. Anyone else still out there? How are you all?

    Love
    Sarah
    Hey Sarah, so lovely to hear ur newsy news and wow, what an adventure you're going on as well. Are you living by the beach yet in ur wonderful combi (forgotten her name)? I just got bitten by the Mother of all bull ants whilst putting the 'girls' to bed (my chooks).....blimey they don't tickle eh so memories suddenly gone blankskies!!! Sarah, I respect urs n Hubby's decision, I also respect you not wanting to go down the IVF route....and I understand you miss your wee baby girl....sending you a monster hug.... I am excited you will be debt free soon and for the new school situation. You don't need a bully in your life.... What a gift it has been knowing you thru this journey tho (n I get to keep ya on my FB hehe)!

    Yup we luv it out here (floods or no floods) hahaha - tis the way of the country and all its surprises. We just get more n more educated as we go along....it's juz beautiful and so so peaceful. Insulation is 60% done and it better be fully completed real soon coz it's starting to cool down at night!!!

    So great to hear back from you in a thread that was once so busy n now hopefully so quiet because there were so many who graduated to mummy-hood - in the meantime - where's my Rescue Remedy....OOOUUUUUUCCCCCCHHHHHHHH!!!!!! xxxmwahxxx

I'm now back to completely flat on my left side. I'll have to wait (am on the waiting list as I'm going public) for up to 12 months just to have expander put back in, and then another operation after that to put the implant in and have my right boob lifted to match the left one....it's put things back a bit and I'm a little ****ed off because I thought I would have my new set of boobs for Christmas...oh well, at least I'm here I guess....it could've been a lot worse!!! I haven't had any really nasty side effects from the medication, only makes me feel tired. I'm going back to the oncologist next week for a check-up and to see how things are going....hopefully all good

    I know what you mean about it being hard trying to move on sans a bebe....I have my ups and downs too....especially when others say to Alex "Fee is so great with kids, are you going to try again??"....then we have to explain that it's an absolute no-no with the medication I'm now on and we really don't have the money to throw into any more rounds of IVF anyway. I'm always wondering whether Alex feels sad that he's missed out. It's so hard, but I'm like you Welsh Mummy I've been through enough emotionally and physically and really don't want to try again...


    Another of my female bosses announced to me today that she's pregnant....I've now been in a crap mood all afternoon.....
    Hey Feebs, gosh it's such a heart warmer to hear from you gals (considering my toes are so friggin cold tonite haha)....I am so so relieved that ur here too gurl and I really do hope those precious booblettes get sorted out. How did the appointment go? Sorry I didn't reply sooner, we just dealt with major floods here in the Hawkesbury and didn't read your reply until now. Your new boobs will happen and they will be more beautiful n bouncier than ever....you should go lingerie shopping with Hubbling once they are good to go hehehe You have been thru so much on top of TTC, I'm so proud of you. It seems that there have been a few of us left to ponder the 'what ifs' but I guess that's the balance of life. I am so so happy so many of our gorgy gals on here made it but my heart bleeds alongside of my online mates who didn't achieve their miracle (even if their lives are still fulfilled). We know those deepest feelings, they're etched in our hearts forever but we are strong women who will learn from our experiences and move on. Keep in touch babes and if you're on FB feel free to add me. Juz inbox me and I will give you my FB details. You take care beautiful lady xmwahx

    For me personally after losing a baby at almost 21 weeks, going through the process of giving birth and holding my baby I have decided that is enough for me. First positive came and went in a blink of an eye as we didn't know we could even get pregnant and got a positive blood test 5 days before I had a m/c. IVF has not been an option due to it being too expensive. You never truly accept that there will never be a child in your life but you learn to live with it. We are on another journey now - a life made for two . We bought a small block of land in 2011 in a beautiful area, have just put our house on the market and hopefully will have a sale in the bag soon so we can start our build. I have transferred schools and have almost finished studying a Graduate Certificate in Autism Studies. A whole new life awaits us and who knows with no contraception and TTC being the last thing we think of and not the first and last thing something magical may just happen!
    Good luck with your journey, wherever it may take you. I hope you get a BFP soon.
    Sarah
    Sarah - Juz wanted to say, so proud of you with your Austism studies!!! XMWAHX

    To all the other girls that are posting here that I haven't introduced myself to...I'm Keziah, I'm 44 going on 45 this yr and Hubby is 45 now.... I'm the xxxmwahxxx girl, the one who used to joke and carry on but I also would get really down with each failed pregnancy/m/c etc. I want you all to know that being in this forum has been both a gift and a blessing and altho I haven't come back to start posting regularly again - and echoing Welsh Mummy's thoughts...... I feel we are the Mother hens, we're still watching over our girls...we may have moved on in our lives (perhaps never fully in our hearts) but I think I can speak on behalf of all of us and that is if you want it bad enuff....keep pushing on....you will either succeed in your dreams and if you don't.....well, maybe WE will be a little reminder that good things STILL happen to good people......

    Thinking of you all on your journeys xxxmwahxxx

    Sunshine Bell.. that's wonderful how supportive your DH is. Mine is the same too, and when I have the worst news or feeling very sad and down about it all, he always manages to effortlessly say something positive. I am so glad he wants this baby as much as I do. Good luck.

    AFM.... FS rang late this afternoon, as he wants me to come in for another scan tomorrow morning. He's really thinking if we don't find the left ovary, that 2 follicles isn't worth it. I said, that DH and I still want to go ahead, but he ended with, well let's see what it looks like tomorrow. I am still extra worried, since the 2 follicles were 22mm today, so tomorrow they will probably be 24mm and I think that's reaching the limit before they bust. Anyhow, again, nothing I can do, so will see what tomorrow brings.

    I have everything crossed for you and your DH Bertie. I hope that naughty left ovary comes from behind its hiding place and is full to the brim.
    much Love

    Welshmummy.... thanks very much for your good thoughts. I had my EPU this morning. We got 4 eggs, so I was pleased about that, since there were only 5 follicles in total (2x24mm and 3x10mm). We found out this afternoon that 2 were mature, so not surprised that the little ones didn't do much. Unfortunately the scientist who rang said there was no sperm from DH that was "of the quality we wanted", so they've injected both eggs with the anon donor sperm. So I had a nice cry, to finally get over not having any sperm from DH and not going to have his baby, but now feeling emotionally better having that finally out of the way and hopeful that the anon donor sperm is now going to work. It's good to be moving on.
