    This is me. Except I'd always indented to have my three kids before 30. I only have DD, I'm single and I'm not far off 30. I don't know if I will have more.

    I have been trying to date but just don't have much luck so I've taken a break while I focus on DS and study.

    Sorry I was with wazza for my only cycle that worked and it sounded very much like something he would say. Geez that's tough to hear from Lynn. She does call it when it's over. She told me to stop cycling with one of my sisters and wait for my younger sister to be ready. She said save the money and go on holiday. I don't think she said flogging a dead horse or maybe she did,

    Yes it was tough to hear but because if previous failed cycles I was expecting it. It's the nurses I am most upset with for making me think that large follicle was a cyst. They have me hope it wasn't over and then Lynn took that hope away in her honest and direct way. The rug went from under me.

    I still think about you and your story. It was so cruel for you to get to 14 weeks and lose your baby. You think you are safe from 12 weeks. I've been reading the forum for long enough to know that no pregnancy is completely safe but even so I was so upset for you. I hope you are doing ok.

    I'm a little late onto this post as I see it's been while since anyone has posted here.

    I'm a mother of one little IVF miracle who is almost 3 and a half. We have tried for number2 for almost 3 years now and it's finally hitting home that we will not be having anymore. We did another 3 ivf rounds and 9 embryo transfers with no luck. I don't have it in me to do another round of ivf again as the emotional side is too hard for me. At this same time I feel like I'm giving up... my hubby and i have unexplained infertility, so I think in the back of my mind I'm always hoping for a miracle. It's not a good place to be either as I still get upset every month when my period arrives.

    Anyway, would love to connect with anyone on here in a similar situation to get some ideas on how you manage to come to terms with your situation. I'm an only child myself, also not by my parents choice so I think it makes it harder to accept as I always said I would give my child a sibling so they didn't have to grow up on their own like me.

    Hi morherwillbe. I have a 5 year old and tried for 3 years for number 2. We lost her at 14weeks and as soon as I saw my baby still on the screen I said I'm done. I can't do this any more and it was the best decision ever. Ivf ruined me and my body and I just love 2 years on being me again and we are s beautiful family of 3. Sometimes people ask if we are going for another and I just say we can't and we have our miracle. And being a mum of 1 is just so easy. My son takes an only child in his stride and loves it. There is always fleeting what if thoughts but the thought of doing it all again kills the pretty quick.

    I thought about this today, when a well meaning acquaintance asked when DD would be getting a little brother or sister. While I try not to be rude to people, my stern never might have put him off a bit.

    DD is about to turn 3. Most of my mothers group now have their second. While I sometimes wonder if we have done the right thing, when I see the others with two I don't feel jealous or upset, I think I have made peace with an only. DD is a very independent child and plays very well on her own with lots of imaginary friends so that helps a lot. I still hate when she asks why others have brothers or sisters and she doesn't.

    After our 8 years of trying, 9 rounds of IVF and a horrendously high risk awful pregnancy I just new we couldn't go again. I am so thankful for my one little miracle.

    Hi, we're in this boat too. DD is almost 3 and we just simply can't afford to do fertility treatment again plus age has caught us up too. I constantly feel like I'm denying her the right to a sibling. I've had the 'will you have anymore' question a few times and am trying hard to not answer with my usual short 'probably not' and rephrase it into 'sometimes these things aren't in our control'. DD is a great kid ... We just focus on the benefits being a family of 3 means to us.
