Thanks ladies it's good to hear your stories as it's a real eye-opener. I'm under no illusion that it will be easy and that's what scares me.
We don't have any frosties left so will have to stim again.
I met with FS yesterday and although he couldn't promise a baby he did say that he will replicate the exact protocol which lead to my pregnancy.
I said to myself I'd only do one more stim + FETs before calling it quits but I can imagine getting caught up in it all once again .
Congrats to those who have had success and for those still trying I wish you all the best.

6 stim cycles, one heartbreaking miscarriage at 9 weeks and no baby #2. I don't think it's going to happen for us. My eggs are crap, I'm getting too old and financially it's a killer.
Breaks my heart every day.

Hi Lillac, it also took me 4 cycles to conceive my DS through ICSI, I was 32. I'm due on Tuesday with #2 after 1st transfer which was a FET, I'm now 35. I had the same worries as you with the 2nd. We actually started a fresh cycle for number 2 but did so poorly the cycle was cancelled. I'm very thankful we had a frozen embryo left. Hope you don't have to wait too long for success with your 2nd.

Had my first IVF bub when I was 40 after trying for 3 years. It took 4 fresh cycles, never had any to freeze.
Now trying for my second and about to embark on my 5th cycle (with 1 cancelled cycle so 8 all up so far). I think I have one more cycle in me after this. I've had a few chemical pregnancies so I feel so close but no cigar as they say. Plus I'm turning 42 in 2 months...yipes.
I am wishing that I had cut off breastfeeding my DS earlier (than 6 months) to get started IVF sooner, it took so long to get things started again. Ah well.

Hi all, I've just had my first child last month but I'm 40 so need to plan ahead if I want one more. Does anyone have any advice to speed up the process for those about to try again for a second? For example, I can say to book the clinic well in advance because there is usually a 3 month wait for an initial appointment.

Hi Jazz congratulations on your new baby!
I don't see the problem with booking in an FS appointment in advance especially if there is a waiting period.
I booked mine at exactly 12 months after my son was born. I took my own FS advice as he had told me to wait 12 months before going back for baby no #2.
He said this would allow time to enjoy my baby and to let my body recover completely from birth.
I stopped breast feeding at 7 months to induce my periods and let my body have 3 natural cycles. To be honest if I didn't have age factor to consider I would have waited longer as I still so tired and busy with my son I have no idea how it world be like with two of them!

@Jazzz99 as I said above, I wish I had stopped breastfeeding earlier (maybe at 3 months) to kick start my periods and get the IVF process up and running faster. Just on my 6th and last cycle for a sibling now. I've just turned 42, I started when I was 40.
