    I thought the odds had to be pretty good I really hope they have the bub they so desperately want soon. They have been trying forever & i know how heartbreaking ttc without sucess can be. I have everything crossed for them

    Thanks for your reply

    But just remember unless you have walked their path you will never completely understand, I don't think from our experiences any non ivfers ever get what we go through

    Grinnyswife - I did IUI first then moved to ivf did 3 egg collections and then a total of 6 transfers (it was hard but so worth it)
    We ttc for years and were told with such a low sperm count there wasn't much chance.
    Ivf gave us a chance...

    I'm not saying I 'completely understand' and why must I remember that? I find your post a bit offensive/rude actually.
    I am VERY empathetic of their pain of not being able to conceive the baby they want more than anything.
    I was only TTC 9 months, but during this time we lost two babies & it was heartbreaking, particularly when my other 2 were concieved first go & I Couldnt work out why it was happening. Wondering if DH & I would ever be able to have a baby of our own.
    They have been TTC 2 years, i know the heartbreak every month when AF arrives and can imagine that pain would only increase after such a long time.
    I have read many many posts on IVFers heartbreak, and whille I have not walked in their shoes, I can still very much empathise with them.
    You dont need to have walked their path to care and be empathetic.
    And just because im a 'non ivfer' does not mean I have not felt the extreme pain of failing to conceive. After my 2nd loss I didn't think I would ever feel happy again, I had never felt such greif.
    I dont think its fair to make comments like this, clearly no one person could ever completely understand anothers journey. But It doesnt mean I dont sympathise or understand the pain of TTC.
