Goodless Halby - I've tears running down my cheeks at the moment because of your post. I wish I could jump into my computer and give you a big squeeze like your little Emerald.

You are one of the most inspiring women I've ever come across and your journey is one that gives me hope and helps me to continue on this journey.

None of us know what the future holds, but that doesn't stop us praying for our miracles.

I'm glad you will never say never Halby.

I wish you and your family the very best Christmas and I hope that 2012 brings health and happiness your way.

Thank you for always being someone that listens and had words of encouragement.

You are a star Halby (Karen).

Halby, huge hugs to you. I am so sorry. You have truly inspired me, so often, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Whenever I have a woe-is-me moment, and think "how many friggin cycles should I have to do??", I say to myself, Halby took 14 transfers for her beloved DD, so suck it up and keep going.

You have remained such a positive influence day in, day out, and it's really helped. I'm having a little cry (for us all really, because we rock and shouldn't have to go thru any of this), while enjoying a glass of vino and eating my body weight in jarlsberg cheese.

So it's definitely not goodbye, I hope, but all the best for your health kick and break from all things TTC. I truly hope you achieve your dream of a sib for Emerald one day. Please stay in touch.

Liltuss and Spock, I am sending you both seriously sticky vibes.

Hey all - just a quick update. DP has her final 2 transfers this morning. We will be crossing fingers and toes but DP is already 'negative' about it as she's resigned herself to this particular donor not working for us sad.gif

Mitch you tell DP not to give up hope!

Just because some haven't worked doesn't mean these ones won't work as well.

Fingers crossed for you both and big hugs. Take care and stay positive.

*** Sensitive: loss mentioned**

Hi ladies,
just a short post to let you know it all ended for me on Friday night. I miscarried my beautiful son at 18w2d, laboured in hospital and it's all over. I did a long and graphic post in the Miscarriage forum, and won't discuss it here. I wish you all the best on your journey's, and I don't know if I'll ever have the courage to go through this risk again. I just don't know. Anyway, just thought I'd let you know.

Oh my God libra I have no words, just tears.
I cannot even begin to imagine how you are.
I am so so very sorry for you and your beautiful angel baby boy.
Why the hell is this so cruel ??

Oh Libra, no words seem adequate right now. I'm so sorry sweetheart, my heart goes out to you.

Is there anything I/we can do for you at all? Please know me/us know.

thinking of you and sending you all the love and light in the world.

****warning loss mentioned****

so sorry libra, truly devastating. hope you are surrounded by people who can love and care u for u and your dp in this unfair and sad time. Reading your m/c post, brought back horrible memories of my first loss, holding my tiny dead baby in my hands. I really do feel your pain and hope you are holding up okay. If you need to just vent, feel free to PM me.

Oh no Libra all I can do is say how sorry I am that you have had to endure this loss of your beautiful baby boy. Like Liltuss I have many tears for you right now so heartbreaking for you and your family. Take care and do what you need to do to get through but know I, we are all here for you if and when you need us.

Words I loathe to hear and I've been hearing almost every month:

"I'm going to bleed"

Words DP stated to me again this morning, not even one week after the transfer!

Good luck to everybody else.

Libra - thinking of you and your DP x

goodluck mitchp, hope your dp gets more positive

#122 minidiamond

Big hugs Mitch, how are you & your DP today ?

#123 mitchp

Posted 16 December 2011 - 09:37 AM

Thanks guys. We are doing ok. DP 'knows' her period is coming (due tomorrow) so unfortunately yet another year without any viable pregnancy sad.gif

On the plus side, we've been talking about how once our puppies (like our babies) have passed on - unfortunately it's a reality as they are getting so old and not as well as they were - and if we don't have any kid/s by that time, it will be a no brainer to stop IVF and save some money and do things for us. Travel, take off on a whim etc.

But in saying that, I believe in my heart that our puppies will be here for at least another couple of years and for that I will be thankful/grateful.

Just getting used to the idea we may never be 'human parents' I guess.

Thanks again all for your support, it means so much x

hang in there mitchp, af hasn't arrived yet so hopefully your dp isn't right this time.

#125 mitchp

Posted 16 December 2011 - 03:12 PM

Spock - you gotta know that our DPs are 'always' right LOL

I agree though - hopefully this time she's wrong!

Good luck to everybody else x
