    Ta @midnite01. I just had a half hour browse online and nup, unfortunately I just couldn't do it. I admire that your friend can but I'm not brave enough. It's such a massive waste to know I'm ovulating and have no access to any golden swimmers!!

    Thanks for sharing BiBV. After my holidays I am thinking that I have PTSD from IVF. I had Christmas with the inlaws where we were doing the big pregnancy announcement. However as soon as we got out of the car MIL mentioned a great secret involving my husband's sister. When FIL chimed in that it was too early to tell us yet my heart dropped. Considering I am pregnant my reaction was pretty bizarre. I instantly thought they were having baby number 4 and struggled not to cry. When it came to announcing our own pregnancy I felt deflated. I felt like we had struggled through years of natural, clomid and finally IVF cycles and yet it was so fecking easy for them. It also didn't help that we are waiting for our harmony results (we are still waiting but DH is going for no news is good news). In the end it turned out their secret was moving OS so all that distress was for nothing. Total over reaction. The biggest hugs going out to all you lovely ladies who survived another Christmas with empty arms and wombs. I am sending prayers out for BFP's for you all in 2016.

    Sending you big hugs faith. You're right, there's so much stress involved here...go easy on yourself and be gentle. Sometimes for me just being alive and semi functioning has been enough xxx

    Hmmm...but just maybe you didn't want anyone else stealing your thunder so to speak after everything you and DH went through??

    I know I was a bit pi$$ed off when I found out my cousin was Preggo not long after I told my immediate family only when I was 12 weeks and my Mum told me a few weeks later that my cousin was Preggo but hadn't announced it yet (her DD which is her 3rd child is 6 weeks younger than mine) and I thought "FFS's!! Why can't I just have this one thing to myself!! Why do I have to share the stage with her too??"

    Yep..totally unkind thought at the time, but after everything DP and I had been through, I didn't want to have to share my moment with someone else (plus I was raging hormonal mess too!! LOL!!) if that makes sense?? Don't be too hard on yourself about it. I think it's totally normal to have these kinds of feelings after surviving the hell that is IVF!!!

    I think with everything you've got going on @faithandhopellove your response was perfectly understandable/normal, particularly on top of all that you've been through to get to this point. Kudos to you I say for getting to the Christmas gathering!

    @Bongley I've read that the gold standard is that they double check, although scientists said to me that a 5-day PGD is pretty rock solid. They'd also have to check the early inutero development I'd imagine? I haven't got there yet, so it's just what I've read/heard. Will you be continuing with your FS or do you need to transfer to ob?
