    It's so nice to have you guys to bounce things off without any judgment.

    Last night I saw an old work colleague out who knows of my previous IVF struggles. She has had two bubs in the 5 years we've been TTC.

    She asked me how I was going with it all & I said that I don't really want to do any more IVF cycles. Do you know what she said to me...... "well if you don't want to keep trying maybe deep down you really don't want kids then".

    Ummmm WTF??

    Her tone was so patronising and condescending too, I felt like throwing my cocktail on her but I didn't want to waste the $16 it cost to buy and it was delicious!
    What a beeping, beeping, BEEP!

    That's some expert level self-control right there! I probably would of let her wear it!

    I just can't continue to do this..
    all my friends with their second and third. @Billie2 that woman that said that to me has been lucky to have two children and her brother had two and her other brother is about to have another and I'm stuck here with no joy.

    I'm sick of my family saying you have one give up.

    And I have todo this all alone without my husband

    @cag14 I didnt know you had 1, Im late to the party on here. My son turns 10 soon. He was 1 when we started ttc#2. Im in a headspace that I realise that we were frucking lucky to have him. He tells me he is lonely and he wishes he had siblings, but I think we have already passed the rough part. I told him he has had 4 brothers or sisters and they died in my belly. He is old enough to be told. He now knows no different. Its going to be ok that we never have anymore, it sux, but we are going to be ok. I have re-engaged my mothers group and I dont want pity, I want people to think sh*t she is tough, dont mess with a woman who has been through infertility. I reckon infertility would be easier to look back on if we succeeded, but we didnt. We walked away with no bump. But this is where I am at, and its our situation. Took me nearly 10 years to be here. Im not at peace, but I am no longer angry

    Hi Girls! Just got back from an extended long weekend at the beach. DH & I had such a great time away with beautiful weather, great surf, delicious seafood dinners & smorgasbord brekkies! Was fabulous being in our own little blissful bubble away from reality!

    Reading through the posts, I'm glad the consensus of the group was that my cocktail was better in my belly than on my colleagues face! Gosh some of you have had such awful comments from insensitive & ignorant people as well!!
    @Sariele thanks for sharing your story I'm glad you were successful after so many setbacks.
    @cag14 I forgot to ask earlier if you decided to go ahead & get the NKC test?
    @Billie2 I'm glad there is another self confessed nutter in the group . I swear I'm now a bit batsh!t crazy from all this. Lol.

    On a serious note though....has anyone had any counselling during or at the end of their journey?

    @ Chocolate Rain- turns out the doctor already did a biopsy in Jan and didn't tell me the biopsy is clear.
    Did bloods today so should find out soon.

    @ChocolateRain this is my therapy session. It was a safe haven for me as no one knew what we were doing. Except Ive recently found out everyone knew. I think there was a meeting at the community hall about it with my family even sending out message pigeons.
