I had my first cycle of ivf in Apr 2008 which resulted in the birth of the beautiful little girl i had yearned for for sooooo many years, She is now 2 years old and since her birth I have sadly been through a very messy divorce. I will turn 40 this year and before it gets too late i would love a sibling for my daughter so i'm considering another cycle using donor sperm. Is there anyone out there in a similar situation? It's a strange feeling stepping into this alone this time around and i never thought i'd be in this place but this site was my lifeline last time around. I have a consultation on 9th Feb and i'd love to buddy up with anyone embarking on a cycle soon.
Lots of love, luck and babydust to you all
I tried to reply yesterday but computer kept being mardy so I'm trying again now. I'm sure there are loads of people out there in the same boat. Why not try posting on general forum so more people can see you.
I'm cycling 1st week in April, if you're still about you can be my buddy, I like having lots of people to talk to which is why I'm always hopping about on different threads.
I feel like you although I'm not separated I just want one more please I'm a good mam and quite a nice person. I would love the opportunity to pass my devilishly good looks on to another child - the world deserves it.
Thanks for your post. I am sorry that i didnt reply sooner but ive had problems with my pc. Anyway, I have my consultation appointment next weds and i'm really excited at the thought of getting started again although i had my bloods back today and my fsh is 11 which is quite high, much higher than it was the last time around so i'm a bit worried about that.
I hope that i will be able to start soon so you never know maybe we could cycle together. I'd be interested in hearing your story if you want to share?
I love sharing my story, it means I can avoid marking and planning all the A-Level courses I keep ending up running.
My story: I am 31, I married DH 9 years ago which seemed to take him over to the dark side and he quickly descended into alcoholism, after some very big battles and at one time me refusing to take him home from the hospital and then doing a runner he sobered up and has been dry for 5 years next week. We've been TTC naturally for 5 years (up to now) but in 2007 had my first ICSI cycle due to low sperm count (he has raised FSH which I thought caused the low count but it's the other way around, testes not working properly means a low count). 1st ICSI cycle resulted in DD (I was a ver, ver lucky girl). |'ve had two cycles since then, summer 2010 and winter 2010. Summer = BFN (boo hiss) and I didn't enjoy that cycle at all, winter = BFP but earl m/c (even bigger boo hiss) and now I am gearing up for cycle 3. It's definitely been up and down but the thing I have found that helps me through it is my sense of humour, I have a tendency to tivialise and mock things that could make me depressed, bitter or inconsolable. Things that are trivial (like when I smashed my pirex dish I used to cook quiche in) can often send me over the edge into melt down like a toddler, it still hurts knowing that I smashed that dish and it was my favourite.
