    @Caesardust how are you doing my lovely friend? Ive been thinking about you too. Things must be really hard and im totally aware of being about to start my de cycle and being in the excited/hopeful stage while you are processing an unsuccessful cycle. Its a weird thing when we are all at different stages of the same journey that has so many ups and downs. Sigh... im not sure what else to say except that im thinking of you. I hope your thought about not being able to have a baby is just that, a thought, not a prophecy xox

    Thanks for thinking of me @georgeousgeorge. I'm vicariously living through you lovelies who are cycling and just plodding along. I check in once a day at least but mostly just trying to not concentrate on ivf too much and just live for a bit. It's weird. It's like you've lost a leg when you're not cycling when you have done for so long. Have a good day xo

    Thank you so much for your post.. And no I'm not gonna tell u where to stick it either! Lol!

    I loved everything that you said.. Yesterday I had a complete meltdown.. I balled my eyes out in the shower to try & save my poor DP from feeling like he had to console me again- but the minute I walked downstairs & he saw me, he knew I was not in a good place. I'd been having horrible catastrophising thoughts.. A younger friend of my sister had posted photos of her 3 day old baby on FB, & my sister had also posted a beautiful photo of my neice who's now 9 mths old.. & it all had just hit me like a smack in the face... I started thinking about never having children.. How empty life will be? wondering what the point of life is when u don't have children to bring up? & thinking about little old ladies that we get on our ward sometimes who never had children & have no one to look after them or help them when they get older except maybe a niece or nephew who helps out a bit... ANYWAY.. You can see where I'm going with this... A VERY BAD PLACE!!

    After I balled my eyes out with DP we did a mindfulness meditation (nothing new we do them most days). but the one we did was about calming anxiety. And I felt like the woman's voice was speaking directly to me..

    She talked about how we view 'predicting' things in life as a way of controlling the unknown- which is of course impossible .. But even so, we play out scenarios in our minds, predicting all sorts of things that might go wrong in the future. And then we believe our own thoughts.. Which sends us into a tailspin of anxiety.

    She said to picture yourself lying on some grass watching clouds float by above, & imagine those clouds as our thoughts... And to just observe & watch them floating by.. And actually identify them as thoughts.. Just thoughts, not FACTS.. And don't react to them. It's then they lose their power over us.

    It sounds soooooo simple. But it was just what I needed to hear. It was a reminder. A reminder that yes we were told some things on Thursday that were pretty scary. But it hasn't actually happened yet. If it does happen that my body can't be pregnant then we'll deal with it when it happens.
    But right now we CAN actually still have hope- bcos Wazza is gonna do everything he knows to do to help us. I keep trying to also remind myself that as much as Im extremely disappointed by my old FS, she did get my lining to 6mm on cd 8 with all those meds etc. If she'd controlled my ovulation then I could have had more days to grow it more.

    So I'm trying not to focus too much on the clouds.. I'm allowing them to float by & acknowledging that they're there.. But I'm doing my best not to react to them or thinking that I can predict the future. So far so good today! It's the first day I haven't cried, not even on my own AND I deactivated my FB!

    Thanks to all you lovely girls by the way, I've felt lots of love & understanding from you all. It's really nice knowing there's so many of you who get it- bcos it feels like the rest of the world hasn't got a clue X
    @Charlie74, wow that's such an healthy approach, you're a tough one...
    You're inspiring me <3

    @Charlie74 I love your post. It makes sense to me, the cloud analogy, so Im going to better myself by using this. You have a good head on those shoulders. One day at a time hey xx
    @LillyM best of luck today, bring out the baguette to belt her one if the FS doesn't listen to you.

    Thinking of you @Rhino for a smooth transfer. Keep the hope high xx

    @Blossom74 The reason I asked you about the Pred was the effect it would have if you currently have an infection. Is it worth chatting to your FN/FS to marry the two pieces of medical info together?
