    @Precious40 - if I were in your shoes I wouldn't do any more HPTs, it will just stress you more. I have always been a one hpt person as I can't stand the stress. These early blood tests you have to have with IVF are one thing I dread ( if I ever get to that stage). It's still very early in the game for you and as Hpt is still rising then that's a postive.

    @infinity888 - sorry to hear about your miscarriage. It's a crap time of year for it. I had a miscarriage confirmed on 22 Dec last year and my daughter born at 28 weeks died on 23/12/08 - I couldn't believe Xmas dudded me twice almost on the same day! Bad things can happen all year round but I think Xmas is more painful as Xmas is supposed to be a happy time (used to be my favourite time of year). I hope you can look forward to 2016.

    @Blossom you have brought up some really healthy discussion about the potential end of ivf without the take home baby. While I was catching up on the 180 odd posts (that I'd missed in less than 24 hours ladies!!) I felt a lot of what you were all saying resonated with me. There were a few tears and thoughts of "shizzle could I just give up?" "Damn my dp says that" "geez my dp does that" and "oh that's a good idea, maybe I should try that".

    Anyway I was told also that online forums were a bad idea by my fs (whatever!!!!) and that I needed to think of an end date. I didn't listen to either of those pieces of advice and figure I'll know when I get there with quitting ivf and I definitely know this thread has been a better support than any of the staff at the ivf clinic could ever provide.

    I'm thankful my dp is accommodating to my desire to have a child and does what he can to help but at the end of the day he is with me for the relationship only. He has his triplets and if I didn't have kids he wouldn't mind for him but he would be upset for me as he knows I want it so much. He is sweet but totally a boof head with trying to understand anything ivf.

    @infinity888 so sorry to hear lovely. Hope you are on the road to feeling better. I had my mc last year too. And it's such a hard thing. Take the time to grieve as you need x

    Huh. I just realised I had mine last Xmas too. But then it DID drag on for about 6 weeks so I don't really associate it with Xmas now. This immune protocol that got me UTD makes me think... That poor little embie last yearnhung on for two weeks with no growth whatsoever before I finally went off progesterone and forced a m/c. Obviously my body was attacking the poor little thing and it put up a valiant fight. It still makes me so mad that my old clinic didn't bother testing me for ANYTHING and just kept taking my money.

    AND I could have had that Bub by now if I was in the right drugs grrrr

    I remember that @JulieMalooley that did drag on

    @greenlady oh I'm so sorry for your losses, no one should go through such pain.

    Here's my current list of possibles:
    Gemma, Aria, Amelia, Michaela (from a family name of Michael), Mia Julia ,
    Savanna, Sophia, Charlotte, Willow, Layla, Summer, Cleo, Georgina, Olivia, Violet, Leia/Leah, Jade, Ivy

    Jackson David (again family name of David), Cooper, Flynn, Bailey, oliver, Lachlan
    Leo, Oliver, Tanner, Hudson, Zac, Cooper, Archer, Axel

    DP still hasn't given it any thought, so no input from him yet.
    We have some picked, all family names. I like the old fashioned names - if we have a girl she will be named after my grandmother, or a combination of her name & my great great grandmother's name. If it's a boy, will probably have the same name as DH, as it's also his father & grandfather's (and on & on) name. With maybe my grandad's name as a second name (his second name is the same as my DH anyway!)

I certainly wouldn't blame him, but he reckons that's not it. He just doesnt think it makes a relationship better and is a waste of money when we were putting it all into IVF. I would have liked to have the same surname as my kids though. I say :P to him.
    I'm in the same boat. I call him DH on here, but we're only engaged (DF?), and can't see a wedding anytime soon. We've spent all our spare cash & more on IVF, and are renovating (ie endless money pit). I would like to have the same surname as bub & him too. After my divorce (about 100 years ago) I went back to my maiden name. So I already have 2 kids with a different surname.

    We had a couple of names picked i love traditional names. We loved amelia except around 2013 everyone i knew were calling their little ones that name. I love sophie, grace, isabella, we had either evelyn or anelia picked as top names and evelyn won out once she was born. We loved that it wasnt too popular.

    @infinity888 I am so sorry sweetie, what a crappy thing to happen and at Christmas too.

    You should always feel you can come here and share, even when everyone is getting bfp's. We all know what it's like to be in your shoes, or can imagine how you feel.

    Sometimes it can make it easier to bear if you share your pain xxxx
