    That's some pretty good advice you've both received girls. It's even harder at the moment as both my support people who are my closets friends are overseas so don't have them around as a shoulder to cry on. My family are very uninterested in this whole process so I find it very hard to talk to them about how I'm feeling. Things have been made worse by a stupid guy too which isn't helping! Met a lovely guy and took me a while to open up my heart and trust him. I finally got to that point and now he's let me down. Grrrrr - Men suck! So it's a double whammy for me right now πŸ˜”

    Oh and @Jem70 - you're right about it tearing your soul out! I saw about 4 newborn babies yesterday and I teared up every time! It's very hard... One of my best friends is coming over from London with her newborn and I don't know if I can go visit (she's only going to Brisbane, not down here to melb). Will I hate myself if I don't go visit? Not sure...

    Ah Kel - that sucks about the guy - has he just withdrawn? I keep thinking wistfully how nice it would be to go on a date but I just can't with this ivf stuff going on, way too taxing. Would it be wise to just focus on you for a bit? Men really suck sometimes and you probably don't need the added confusion right now.

    I hear you on newborn babies - my best friend is about to drop her 2nd baby, my other best friend has her 18 month old baby boy (from ivf) and my work is baby mania central at the best of times. It's bloody hard work maintaining a positive front. X

    Tough one on seeing your friend and her bub - when I miscarried, my bestie (who was pregnant at the same time and whose pregnancy was a success) said to me that she totally understood if I didn't want to see her for awhile. She'd been through infertility and knew how freaking hard it was. I so loved her for being understanding and I did indeed have a break for awhile. I also avoided another good friend's baby shower just a few weeks back, couldn't bear it on top of the failed cycles. Do what is best for you right now, even if it means explaining to her that you can't see her right now as it's just too hard (or even just make up an excuse not to catch up).

    @Kellyk77 I've had a girl at work pregnant and have her baby so dealing with it everyday - not a fan. Although I must admit that I travel a lot for working and screaming babies on the plane take the edge off my pain

    Men first - is it a permanent full moon? Same thing - met an amazing guy, everything clicked and then he just backed off. Blessing in disguise as I wasn't ready to give up another cycle for a man but really, is it any surprise we're all buying from the sperm bank!

    Now friends with babies - you've got to do what you need to do. explain how you feel. I think she will understand.

    @Kelly70 haven't you notice they finally show up when you're not really available!
    It was nice to have an old fashioned crush but it made me realise I am committed to really try this.

    So I pledge to give up dating, alcohol, my sanity, skinny jeans, and living without a care in the world. For an approx 6 per cent chance.

    thanks to @Helsbaby I know it is actually possible for old eggs to come out to play occasionally so good or bad I am really happy that I will never look back with regret that I didn't try!

    We are ALL amazing!

    @Kelly70 yes he's just withdrawn and his silence is killing me. The thing is just last week he was telling me how he wasn't out to hurt anyone as he'd been hurt so badly himself and bam, he's hurting me by ignoring me. It ****s me as I told him how hard I find it to trust as I was hurt recently and I finally do and now he backs off. It's history repeating itself as this is what happened last time. Anyway, in his defence he has been through a hell of a lot but seriously you would think that would make him less likely to be an ***!
    @Jem70 - seriously what is with these guys?!??? This is the 2nd time this has happened to me this year. Not sure I can go back for a 3rd. I can't handle the angst! Can't believe you've been through the same (although I prob can as they all seem like ********* to me right now...)!

    On the friend thing, I'm sure she'll understand. My other close friend in brisy said maybe don't come up as it might be a bit raw and i think she's right. Anyway will see how I feel in a week or so and decide.

    Oh I'm hearing you girls on both counts, men and friends with babies. One of my friends (who doesn't know I am doing IVF) told me days after my failed cycle that she was accidentally pregnant with her 3rd child, what a surprise, she was going to be such an old mum (she is 18 months younger than me) blah blah blah. I had to hold myself together for the rest of the visit and howled like a baby when I got in the car.
    As for men, I have been disappointed and let down more times than I care to remember, hence I am going it alone. I see so many children used as leverage in fractured families that I would rather raise a child happily alone than on a toxic situation. I know this path isn't for everyone but I am happy with my decision.
    I think we are a pretty inspirational bunch of women!

    On another topic I started Synarel Sunday week ago, AF was supposed to start last Sunday. It is now Tuesday and no sign, completely MIA! I have a down reg scan on Friday so hopefully that will tell me what is going on.
