I hope we all get to see some light in 2016.
I want nothing more than for us Over 40's to show the young 'uns how it's done, and fall one by one into vats full of sticky baby dust. And then we can all meet up, at a beautiful resort (or in my backyard, because lets face it - none of us will have any money left by then!) and introduce our gorgeous chubby babies to each other and drink vast amounts of wine and eat chocolate.

@Summer sounds like you have a plan, let us know what your DH says when you lay it on him! I think my partner would have been up for going to SA for the holiday alone!
He is also the non-emotional kind of guy and it does make you feel alone but it must be very hard to get a grasp of whats going on when it isn't happening to you. He told me he shed a tear when our son was born which totally gobsmacked me. I think sometimes it happens all in a rush for them when the kid actually arrives. I felt like saying 'Well I did tell you there was a baby in there.....'
Well, today I have been using up some internet cheapies and seeing how watered down I can get my wee before it doesn't show up on a poas This is what happens when I work from home.
Need to get that scan done next week so I can stop fretting!
In regard to knowing when to call it quits, when we changed clinics, our new FS said he would do 2 rounds with us. On paper I was a bad responder to stimms, had a low FSH count, and was 41. With his protocol & help from my Natropath, I definitely improved. But $$ is definitely always been an issue with us. We had to take out a loan to do IVF. So we were pretty much at the end of the $ after that 2 rounds anyway. That's when we got 4 day 5 embies in the freezer. And even though the first FET was a MMC, I guess it gave us hope this could really work for us. I was starting to think that at the end we would have this loan to pay off & nothing to show for it (except 10kg IVF weight for me!) Second FET was BFN, and at that point we decided that we wouldn't do any more stimm rounds, just transfer what we had in the freezer. It was a hard decision, but it felt good to have an end date, if that makes sense? It's a personal thing for us all.
My DH is supportive, in a man way. I don't think he took the MMC as hard as I did. He only ever came into 2 transfers (out of 5) because it made him feel awkward. I have felt on some days like I've been going through this alone. And that's hard for anyone. You girls are all great, and the support on this forum is amazing. ❤️
