    Dear melimum. I am a mommy to a beautiful IVF girl 15 months old. It was a long and hard journey to get Violet and I am older now. I just lost a dear little baby girl in my womb two weeks ago at 14-15 weeks. I'm turning 42 this year, and although we have one last frozen embryo I fear that our chances are extremely slim.

    I am in your club too. I had no trouble conceiving and have a 2 years old ds. I always thought I would have 1 and only ever wanted 1. I convinced my hubby that 1 was it and now I want another and he doesn't and he won't budge. I am 37 so time isn't on my side either. Sometimes I'm ok with it and other times I'm not..

    It's nice to speak to others in the same boat as me... often it feels like I'm so alone. I'm also 37 and hubby is in his 50's. I think our time has run out too, even though every month I still pray for a miracle.

    I toy with the idea of IVF again but I don't think we can afford it now... I feel we have spent so much already.

    I"m finding now a lot of friends are having their second child and although I'm obviously happy for them... my heart aches for my own loss of not being able to have another. Some days I am thanking for having DS but other days I get so angry as the choice to have more has been taken from me. It doesn't seem fair..

    This is us. We have a nearly 3 year old DD. It took us 13 months to conceive her (no issues on either side) and we've now been trying for 1.5years for #2 with no luck at all. We've had testing again and noting wrong with either of us. I'm on the list to get my tubes checked now. It's a funny situation when you're hoping they find something wrong so at least you know there might be something that can be fixed. I don't know how long I can do this for though. We've said until DD starts prep so we have a few more years. I'm not optimistic.

    I'm actually glad to come across these threads. I wanted 5 children. Fast forward to needing ivf due to male factor, got DD after having to wait for 1.5 yrs. then fast forward to financial constraints. I just want one more. I put my hope in known egg donors that is now on hold in Australia and I have isssues with flying. I may have to concede defeat. But this is not how things were supposed to go!

    It's so hard having to let go of what you wanted your family to be. How old is your DD? I found getting counselling through the fertility clinic helped me come to terms with my situation a little better...

    How did you go with your tests last year? Have you had any luck conceiving?

    Didn't realise this thread was still alive. I'm not as active on BH so much anymore. Dd will be 7 this year. Still no luck in conceiving number 2 with 4 losses. Its so hard doing school drop offs and pick ups. So many babies and pregnant mummas. Most children in her class have siblings 😭
