@tegs26, how very frightening for you hon. Hopefully it's just your little embie/s settling in nice and snug, but I agree with the others - stay off your feet as much as you can. Sending sticky sticky baby vibes your way

Good morning all
Work is flat-knacker right now so I've not had a lot of time to pop in here. More work to do today, and then a GP appointment this afternoon. Will request some BT's while I am there I think
No other real news happening here. I lead such a boring life, lol.
Oh, I taped that show on IVF last night, but didn't watch it. I heard too many bad reviews saying it was very one sided and negative, and I don't have space in my life for negative at the moment. Maybe one day I'll watch it, but not now.
Hugs to all

I had sn appointment this morning with wazza and the first thing he asked was "did you watch four corners?". He didn't watch it himself as he said he could predict what it was going to say. His wife watched it and told him all about it and it was just as he thought all negativity. His concern was that the programme would stir up the government and powers that be and they would start to take support and money away from women doing ivf like us.

OMG, they must be kidding! The Government should be doing MORE to help us, not less! I don't know, they're always banging on about "Children are our future" and encouraging us to have more babies, but it p***** me off that they'll happily shovel money at 14 year olds to have a baby, whilst the people who are mortgaging their homes in their 30's and 40's to have a baby struggle to be able to afford food. This really makes me mad!!!

@faithandhopellove....hoping everything is going well for you hon.
I imagine it is a bittersweet time for you at the moment, welcoming big bubba whilst at the same time saying farewell to little bubba. My heart aches for you.
Hope you are giving big bubba lots of lovely snuggles today, and that you are recovering well

It's a tough one isn't it?
But it raises an interesting point though. My FS was quite up-front about our poor chances of success, and yet even after my MC (and we're talking two or three days) I got a call from a FN asking what our plans were going forward. There was a definite push (well, by the Nurses anyway) to move onto the next cycle as soon as each cycle ended. That was always a concern for me.
At the end of the day, most of us will go to the ends of the Earth to have our babies. We will put up with anything - judgement, arrogant doctors, crippling medications, painful procedures. If there is money to be found, we'll scrape it up and send it in - anything for a chance.
That's how I have always felt, anyway. I told my DH I will never give up on this, and if we can't afford IVF I'll find another bl00dy way to do it. It would be easy for clinics to take advantage of women with the same sort of mentality as me.
