    @Tahli, everyone has a breaking point hon. And God knows you've thrown everything you could have at this. For me I know the end of my journey will come down to money, but there are many other reasons for stepping back that are just as valid, if not more.

    You are Momma to a lovely little boy and as much as I know you long for a second child, I also understand that being there, and being healthy enough, to care for him must be your number one priority. Maybe putting your health first, and taking a step back to evaluate would do you the world of good.

    You may choose to continue on with IVF in the future. You may choose not to. Either way, I am in awe of everything you have been through so far on this journey, and we support your decision no matter how you decide to move forward from here.

    And chick, whatever happens from here on in - please keep popping back in so we know you're ok. You're just freakin' awesome and the place just wouldn't be the same without you

    Oh @Tahli, I don't know what to say. When I saw your first message I was going to say keep going you will get there, but on reading your second, if your health is suffering and you need to stop now, then you should stop. If you get yourself healthy and drug free you may decide to revisit, or not. Either way, you'll know what's right at the time. This is a sh1tty experience this IVF gig. And it tests us beyond our limits. I hope you are ok.

    Right!! I'm here...late as per frucking usual as is my (unnatural) style these days FFS's!!! Anyhoo....

    @Tahli Oh Luv!!!

    You've hit rock frucking bottom by the sounds of it and yes, everybody has their breaking point when enough is bloody-well enough!!

    So then just stop and have a decent break away from all the drugs and the stress etc, etc. Really, I can't add anymore to what @Blossom74 has so beautifully written.

    Your frosties aren't going anywhere Luv. You might decide to revisit the idea in a few months or so's time and then again maybe you won't. I think you've pushed your mind, body, emotions and spirit to the absolute limit and you need to take a break before you have a freaking break-down!!!

    You need a complete rest from all the drugs, the stress, the worry, the obsession, the mindfruck that is IVF and once you've recovered your health in every way, then see how you feel about trying again with your frosties.

    We're all here for you Luv and will totally understand if you need to have a break from BH too

    @Tahli I get it. Im sorry I am new on here and don't know your background. As I understand you said 2nd baby...? I assume you have a child then? I only ask as I have a son, he is turning 9 this year. We have secondary IF. We started ttc #2 when he was 18mths old. I am going to contradict my previous post by saying that I, or we, have an end point. (Always have hope though). We are doing IVF so that I have no regrets. At least we tried. I can go to my grave knowing we tried. I cant justify spending my time, money, head space on a 'what if' baby, when we have a healthy happy little man in front of my face, sometimes giving cheek.. I hope this doesn't offend anyone, we are all in different positions.

    Im mentally wrecked after all these years. Im one of those NOT on FB because of infertility. Ive cried a thousand tears in the shower so no one can hear me. IVF is our closure. The final race. Our next full stim cycle is it. Its only our 2nd go. But thats what we negotiated. If I get more than 2 eggs, I will eat my thongs. If we got anything to freeze, I will eat my hat. If it actually works, I will eat my maternity bra from 2007 that I am hoarding like a mental woman. My son used to tell us when he was 3, that "you get what you get, and you dont be upset", which is what he learnt at preschool. For my sanity, I need to move on if we are not blessed. I am about to turn 39 and my whole 30's has been consumed by baby and ttc a baby. I want to be free I guess from the burden. I always thought I was meant to breed. I am 1 of 5, my mum is 1 of 10. Guess not..!
    @Tahli Im sorry I just let that all out. Whooops. I just want you to know that whatever you decide, or feel in your head and heart, its going to be ok. You need to be ok first.
