    Oh I am so glad I have made you feel a little bit better. This baby making thing is so stressful and impacts on the core of your identity that I think the more we can help each other get through it the better.

    Do you ever worry about your kid being lonely if you can't have another. I really don't want my ds to suffer by not having a sibling. How do I stop him getting lonely?

    Yes, I always worry about DS being lonely. The only way we can help them avoid being lonely is to encourage them to play with other children (relatives, playgroup, friends kids, etc), spending time with them, taking them places, doing activities with them and having them do an activity/sport they enjoy. If their mind is busy doing things then hopefully they don't have a chance to feel lonely

    Hi, thanks mum2chris. Yes, I try and take ds to as much stuff as possible, where he can meet other children. We have been doing story time at the library this week and gymbaroo. He loves it! Even when he sees little babies he's interested in them, he would make a great brother, I can tell already.

    I did a stupid thing yesterday and took a pregnancy test. It came up bfn, I was sad. But it was only 9 to 11 dpo at a guess so maybe too early. But I'm not keeping my hopes up.

    Five months tomorrow TTC, I just have this dreaded feeling that it's too late for me. I know Ivf is an option or egg donation, so we will look into that if no luck. Our specialist says it could take 12 months to get pregnant so not looking forward to that. But he also said it is highly likely I will miscarry again, which stresses me about taking so long to conceive. At least last time I got preggers straight away.

    Anyway we are seeing him on Monday for bt and ultrasound results.

    Hi everyone,
    I've been having a think about everyone's worries and insecurities about their children not having another sibling and wondering if it's too late to have a baby and I kept trying to think of a way to make you feel better. I can't make it all better but what I can do is share something a psychologist told me years ago. She told me to stop thinking into the the future, so in other words, to stop myself from fortune telling. It wastes energy and emotions. If you can, try to stop your worries in their tracks and go day by day. We're all here to support each other!

    Thank you Joey. I know I should stop worrying about the future and focus on the now. I just find each month hard. You're right though focus on the now. Having af cramps today so I think af is tomorrow. Took another test yesterday and it was negative.

    Was really upset this morning, had a big cry cos dh was being grumpy about the housework but all I was thinking about was cramps and how it's now five months trying. Af hasn't turned up yet so a small chance, but I think I'm back on the roundabout next month.

    Our husbands sound very similar. Mine gets very grumpy and stomps around the house when we do housework! He's not lazy or anything. He's fantastic and does more than his fair share but whenever he has things to do he switches into cranky mode!

    Luckyme - I know what you mean about HPTs, I just can't help myself either. Sorry it was a BFN but as you said maybe it's still a bit early? I don't believe that it's too late for you, there is no reason why you couldn't conceive naturally and yes IVF is an option also, but it's all about waiting isn't it? Why did your FS say you are highly likely to m/c again? That's not very reassuring. If he says that then does he know why and can he help you avoid it? I hope you get some answers on Monday, good luck with your results .

    Joey - you are so sweet, I appreciate your thoughts and kindness . Yes, we are here to support each other, some days that's all I need, just to hear one of my Bubhub friends share their feelings and offer a hug get's me through. The psychologist makes sense, there is a lot of time and energy wasted looking into the future, I'm going to try my hardest to live day by day.
