    @faithandhopellove I absolutely love the idea of a romance now. I'm ready. It's taken a loooong time. Just no idea how to go about it. Dating sites don't appeal. Any chance I might meet a lovely guy organically and get old fashioned butterflies in my tummy?! Too much to hope for??

    Default IVF over 40 #33

    Sorry no stick action from me yet, nothing to suggest there is anything going on. I'm just terrified that if this doesn't work DP will want to give up. It's very hard to talk to him about anything IVF related, I'm not ready to give up.
    I had a dream last night I got those two pink lines and I was trying desperately to get a photo to show you all

    @Tahli I met my guy on a dating site. It can be good fun and I know lots of couples who have met that way. I did it every few years when I felt I needed to dip back into the dating pool. Think I maybe went on ten or so dates (over about 3 years) before landing my toyboy. He was out of my ideal age range but by that time I'd thrown most filters out the window!

    I hope its a premonition too! Stay in limbo land for as long as you need to and at some point you'll know when you're ready. Soooooooo hoping this is it!

    @Tahli how are you going with your decisions? I can imagine it would be tempting to stop and get on with your life, I feel the same way sometimes and start to think about how we could have a different life without all this. Sometimes I think Im past it all, but then theres the moments where it makes me feel really sad that we might not have that experience of raising a child and birthing a baby together. And I guess the fear of regret is almost what keeps me going in all this! Sounds weird really but I guess after this long trying it just starts to feel so tiring and boring. I wonder how dedicated a mum I will be, given its all been so hard and Ive had to completely immerse myself in my work to get through it.

    As for the man meeting options, its hard isn't it, Ive got a couple of friends who have never been married or had a partner for ages, and they have done the internet thing which hasnt worked for them, but I do know a few people that have long term relationships out of doing that. I personally probably would try it if it was me, the positive thing about wanting someone our age is that they are probably more serious about actually wanting a relationship, not just a sh@g, and some are possibly in a similar boat to yourself with a prev marriage and/or kids. Its pretty hard unless you meet someone through friends or work or something really.

    If you go to SA for that week you could have a whirlwind romance with a hot stranger travelling solo!!!!

    Hon, my donor has done 6 donor cycles, is about to embark on her 7th, has twins and several singleton donor babies running around and has 2 young kids of her own. I promise you, when it comes to spending the sort of money we are, you are always going to be nervous! I *should* be feeling pretty confident but the natural instinct tells me I'm not generally a lucky person and anyone can have a bad cycle! I don't think we ever get to a place where we are comfortable

    Yes! I really truly do believe this can happen, but the thing is (and it's something I'd never considered) they aren't going to come and knock on your door, lol.

    A natural meeting can happen if we set the scene for it to be. Can you do a course? I met hubby at uni. Or is there a book club or social club you could join? I really do think if you put yourself out there among like-minded people it is possible

    I hope for your sake he doesn't want to give up hon, but if he did - that doesn't mean you have to. Never give up hope xxx
