    Hi lovelies,

    Just wanted to pop in and let you know it's that time again - time for Blossom to go travelling for work. I'll be away until late Tuesday evening, but will try and boot Dad off his computer and catch up with you all at some point.

    Hugs to everyone,


    Blossom.

    Evening ladies. Soon to head to my Sunday night yoga which is always lovely but today has been a really hard day. The sadness has hit me with a full blow and the overwhelming feeling is back. I'm starting to really stress about my surgery on Tuesday and cycle. Failure looms big again. The impending baby shower of my brothers partner is enough to make me crumble in a heap. My own mother now is like talking to a stranger and the sadness at the loss of the richness of that relationship is almost too much to bear. I'm feeling like it's just all too hard at the moment. Breathe.........

    Hi @Ceasardust
    Sorry your feeling so down, same way myself at the moment after my cousins announcement of "accidental" (yeah right) pregnancy. I am due to go on holiday soon but it's with my mum and my cousins parents so now I'll just hear about her baby or questions as to why I disappeared after the announcement will arise, now my mum has started saying that firstly maybe I should just start telling people I'm doing IVF ( um hell no) or that she wants me to stop doing it because I'm getting too upset, so now I don't want to talk to her at all about it. I'm sure all of us on her have our down times and our really down times so take some small comfort that you are not alone X
    Big hugs

    Thanks @MissDa it means a lot to hear from others experiencing similar things. I've also got a cousin due the same time as my brothers so both my mother and her sister are becoming grandmothers for the first time. Of course they are super excited and I'm like hmph grandparent that's another thing that won't happen to me.

    aww @Caesardust sorry to hear you are so down. Its really hard when people around you are having babies and it always seems like you're the only one going through this, I know that feeling well, Im sure we all do.
    If you cant handle the shower then don't go or just stay for a bit and then make up something you have to do. Otherwise just call in sick, thats what I do when I cant do it. Fruck it, they're all doing what they want, look after yourself and do what you want. Its too hard sometimes to put on the happy face. Ive missed many gatherings of my friends whom all have kids and think xmas is a really happy time, well its not for me so I don't go. I don't think its ever occurred to anyone that those times are hard for people going through this. People just do not understand how hard this is. End of story. They may think they do but honestly unless you have been here you have no bloody clue.

    Yoga sounds ideal right now. Try and focus on your next steps and don't think too far ahead, as things can seem unsurmountable when you do that. And then buy yourself a treat on the way home and indulge in something yummy. Those salted caramel connoisseur ice creams are pretty damn nice!!!

    big hugs
    @MissDa just make up some excuse, lie, do whatever you have to. Again they don't understand and Im sure your mum just doesnt know how to help you. Mine thinks I should keep trying and trying, but she's only being kind and being positive that it can happen for me. I guess its hard for them too as they don't want to see their child go through this. big hugs too

    I really wish people understood just how crushing this journey was. Maybe then instead of having to steel ourselves to what others do and say we would be shown their empathy and support. It would certainly make life a little easier.

    I have an RC mother in law who thinks IVF is totally wrong. We have never told her anything about our IVF decision. Luckily her own mother had a child in her 40's so she thinks ours is au naturelle.
    I wonder how she would respond if she had been in my shoes. If she had married late, then had a husband who got sick and spent 2 years having treatment. To see the same specialist who had been so positive about natural chances now shake his head. Or to know that you will never have a child if you don't go through IVF. Then to discover that IVF is no guarantee but is instead (as someone here so eloquently stated) a sickening cycle of hope and grief.


    I am so sorry @CAEserdust and @MissDa for what you're going through. The universe owes you big time. Are you listening universe! We need BFP's here stat! And give some people some compassion while you're at it!

    Love it @Charlie74 !!! You go girl! have one for me..
    Its funny how different options you were once never open to slowly become ok, I think it just takes time as you say. There are so many kids who could thrive with a loving healthy home and its so sad that a lot of those roads are so hard for people to access.

    Enjoy the cosmo and put your feet up!! Thats a shizload of work you've been doing!

    @Charlie74 fostering was high on my plan B list but DH said no. I am still harbouring a little hope that he will change his mind. It's been something I have been thinking about since my single days.
    All over DH is pretty good though. So far his only definitive no's have been DE in SA (he has a friend who emigrated from there and has been filling his head with horror stories) and fostering.

    I like the look of that cosmopolitan. Have one for me too.
