    @Luckyme1 it certainly is a difficult and personal decision that you get forced to make, and you are right chances are very high at our age ...it is very confronting and not even my self protective pessimism prepared me for being told we were the 1 in 50 or whatever it is. The point is for us, once you decide to proceed and they are born, there is no turning back. Who would know what their life will entail, happiness, joy or struggle, suffering? I just am thankful that we can test now ...given the way roulette works for us...I am sure there are just as many odds involved in the different aspects of DS manifestation...and affectedness

    Anyway I know its a sensitive topic and im not wanting to offend anyone least of all mothers who have chosen to proceed or their beautiful bubbies, I understand all points thats for sure. I am desparate and childless so it is incredibly heartbreaking . I did not want to be put in this position that is for sure.

    Beautifully put. I hope that the tests coming up will prove otherwise, but you will survive this and move forward. We will help you do it too. Hugs.

    @mrsmac123 I've been following your posts this week but couldn't find the right thing to say. The experienced girls have expressed themselves so eloquently and with such heartfelt support. I'm sending you huge hugs & know that we're all here for you as this week unfolds.

    Thanks Tahli I appreciate that, I still have not heard from my own father and I know he struggles with words and grief so I said to him from the start its ok. If roles are reversed I have the same problem especially if you put yourself in someones shoes. My mum called me yesterday and said she did not call me the day b4 as she was so shocked and upset herself that she... the lady who talks underwater ....was speechless

    This has been the best place for me surrounded by understanding and loving and non judgemental people more than I expected since I have been going on and on. I also know everyone here is having and had their own tragedy (everyone in the world) and sometimes its hard to take on someone elses as well

    I felt flat numb yesterday and thought I am gonna be fine...today I feel I am slipping into darkness when I think about what is coming and I cant avoid it. DH doing his best to distract me (himself?) with the mundane... took me to the markets and brekkie., I walk and eat a bit but dont see or hear much

    @mrsmac123 all those feelings are to be expected. Its all such an intense experience, especially after such a hard time getting to where you've got with a pregnancy. I really feel for you and Im glad you have felt supported in here by these lovely women. Vent as much as you need to, allowing your DH to distract you is probably the best thing right now. Sending you big hugs and thinking of you xx

    Default IVF over 40 #14

    Does anyone have any unused synarel - I'm happy to pay for it and postage ? I've found myself short and going to CT in 2 weeks and FS on leave for another week so no script on hand. I can get it internationally but stressing about how long that may take...

    No he's semi retired and when I've needed something on the days he's not there, it's been 'sorry you'll have to wait'.

    I reckon there's a chance my old IVF clinic will give me some since he is still affiliated with them, but not counting my chickens yet

    Leyshoja I just got an email from my old clinic saying they no longer keep medications and they all need to be obtained from a pharmacy via script. I'm so out of the loop as I haven't stimmed in over 6 months. Anyway I only have a half used synarel sitting here which would be totally unhygienic as well as not knowing how many doses are left in it. I heard of someone using an old bottle of synarel and the cycle flopping because she was squirting just air up her nose when it ran out.
