DJSHears, I'm so sorry to hear about your mc, it's so desperately upsetting and at christmas time as well. All I can say is keep going, take each day as it comes and all this will be behind you one day, hopefully tho you'll be too knackered and busy with a new bub to think about it. Sending you lots of love, make sure you are kind to yourselves.
Lilwish, sorry that it didn't work out again for you this time. Frustrating just doesn't cover it I know. Am hoping so much that 2012 is the year for you
Zannah, I can understand the FN being cautious but I think she's been way over the top, a positive attitude goes a long way, did she even back it up with it's definitely worth trying?! I got pregnant with HA-ICSI just short of my 42nd birthday, I'll be 42 and a half when our girl arrives and I haven't ruled out trying for number 2! I was told that 43 was when the egg quality dramatically nose dives so that (and finances) were our goal posts. The stats are pointless to the individual, I was told we had a 15% chance of success, the first time, the second time our chances increased, etc, etc, but again it depends on the individual. As the others have already said, you keep going until you are a) pregnant or b) mentally ready to get of the rollercoaster. Wishing you all the luck in the world, I hope to see you on this thread with a success story (and gleefully flipping the bird at the FN!) in 2012
I'm still chugging along, 30 weeks today and quite large. I'm over work but have another 6 weeks left, my body aches all over and my daughter is riding an imaginary bike while waving her arms in the air pretty much constantly, it's quite fascinating. 10 weeks to go and I'm ready already.
So, Mammalinz, where are you and where is your beautiful daughter?!?!
