Hi Sunshinebell, I'm glad you have been 'inspirate'ed' (sorry couldn't help myself I'm a big MKR fan and think Jenna is fab) by this thread. Before this there was also No. 1&2. if you want some more reading as we've been around for a long time . To be honest I don't come in here very often anymore but I'm like an old Mother Hen keeping an eye on her chicks. I just have to pop in here every now an then to make sure everyone is ok.
I'm on a different journey at almost 43 (my husband is 44 tomorrow) but really and truly wish you the best of luck. I hope you get a BFP soon.

hi to anyone posting in here! hi to sunshinebell..its your posted that made me feel like posting for the first time in...hmmmm dont know..m6 months? maybe 8 or 9? not sure really...
my DP and i were TTC for about 5 months, then struck some relationship problems. weve been together for 18yrs in April. and have been having a 'break' so to speak for 4 months now..but about to give it another go. too many dramas in the last few years which made life difficult..and TTC last year i think pushed us over the edge! so now were about to start TTC again. Im 38, he's 44.. no issues with fertility that we know of. initial tests say were both ok. but have been referred to fertility clinic anway by my lovely GP as she feels theres no time to lose! got that appt on 10/4. bit nervous about it actually.
so perhaps popping in here every so often will help calm the nerves : )

Thanks Welsh Mummy ... its actually the HerveyBay couple that im inspirated by ... love watching them. Its the Qldander in me! Anti SunnyCoast siblings though! There was no way i could root for the wa pair.
Thanks Juniper74. Dealing with infertility can take its toll on relationships. Things changed for us once we really individually dealt with it. Long road, but knowing that we have also been able to dream a life for 2 (its a good way to put it welsh mummy) and explore and discover things in the last few years we had never imagined was the key for us.
We have done things never thought we'd do in a lifetime and are very open to going with where life roads take us. Before it was work to have money for family, must have house for family, ... everthing was about setting up for family. We can do that again if a little miracle comes our way but i guess we are more selfish now. We make decisions on if we dont have kids what do we want to have experienced in life. I think before we gave some of those dreams being 'responsible' to set our family up for the future. Does that make sense? It was our way of finding positives in life to counteract the biggest negative of all.
When my hubby asked me last year did we want to give ivf one last few goes(he says 4 i say 3) i knew we had to. I always felt like in the past it was me who was the driver (arranging everything) dont get me wrong we both wanted it but i felt the weight was on me.the most beautiful thing to me was when i said yes.. but i cant deal with the weight if it all. ..... i arrived home one day and he'd made the inquiries, make a consultation. Did all the costings. Said ill look after it this time babe.
That meant alot as he seen the toll it took on me when we went down theis road before.
Now im in a jam as im trying to keep two dreams alive ... the one if our mracle happens ... and the road of a life for two. Well actually 3 , the dog thinks she's a child.
Juniper.. do you think it was the dealing with infertility that has caused your relationships probs?

To all the other girls that are posting here that I haven't introduced myself to...I'm Keziah, I'm 44 going on 45 this yr and Hubby is 45 now.... I'm the xxxmwahxxx girl, the one who used to joke and carry on but I also would get really down with each failed pregnancy/m/c etc. I want you all to know that being in this forum has been both a gift and a blessing and altho I haven't come back to start posting regularly again - and echoing Welsh Mummy's thoughts...... I feel we are the Mother hens, we're still watching over our girls...we may have moved on in our lives (perhaps never fully in our hearts) but I think I can speak on behalf of all of us and that is if you want it bad enuff....keep pushing on....you will either succeed in your dreams and if you don't.....well, maybe WE will be a little reminder that good things STILL happen to good people......
Thinking of you all on your journeys xxxmwahxxx

Sunshine Bell.. that's wonderful how supportive your DH is. Mine is the same too, and when I have the worst news or feeling very sad and down about it all, he always manages to effortlessly say something positive. I am so glad he wants this baby as much as I do. Good luck.
AFM.... FS rang late this afternoon, as he wants me to come in for another scan tomorrow morning. He's really thinking if we don't find the left ovary, that 2 follicles isn't worth it. I said, that DH and I still want to go ahead, but he ended with, well let's see what it looks like tomorrow. I am still extra worried, since the 2 follicles were 22mm today, so tomorrow they will probably be 24mm and I think that's reaching the limit before they bust. Anyhow, again, nothing I can do, so will see what tomorrow brings.

I have everything crossed for you and your DH Bertie. I hope that naughty left ovary comes from behind its hiding place and is full to the brim.

Welshmummy.... thanks very much for your good thoughts. I had my EPU this morning. We got 4 eggs, so I was pleased about that, since there were only 5 follicles in total (2x24mm and 3x10mm). We found out this afternoon that 2 were mature, so not surprised that the little ones didn't do much. Unfortunately the scientist who rang said there was no sperm from DH that was "of the quality we wanted", so they've injected both eggs with the anon donor sperm. So I had a nice cry, to finally get over not having any sperm from DH and not going to have his baby, but now feeling emotionally better having that finally out of the way and hopeful that the anon donor sperm is now going to work. It's good to be moving on.
