Dear Thistle, That was a quick reply! No, you are definitely not alone. So understand your feelings. ALL of my friends now have babies and I feel so isolated from their exclusive club. My Mum is with my younger sister in OZ at present visiting her baby which is hard. I think you have to try soooo! h...

Dear All, Happy New Year!! Already 20th Jan and I have not been on the site for ages - is it just that we have a slow computer or does it take ages to get around the site? Christmas does always come complete with far more challenges for us than for many because it focusses so much on family. This ye...

Dear Girls, So sorry to take such an age to get back to you, especially to Alison and Amanda, after our meeting. Our computer has been out of commission for almost 3weeks. Weird how much I actually use it when I always thought that I did not really need it. Alison, so sorry that your cycle was aband...

Hello girls, Just to say that it was lovely to meet up on Friday. As usual too much to say and too little time. However, it was a pleasure to feel that now we have had a couple of meetings we are not just cyber friends. So sorry that Luce, Grace and Jen were not there. Also a special "hello" to Beck...

Well, hello all of you! Quite a coincidence that I should pop on to the site today and Luce has just posted today as well after quite an absence. It sounds as though we are all still ploughing on through life with plenty of ups and downs. Alison, your trip away sounds like a real tonic. Nick and I h...

Hi Grace, Luce, Jen, Alison and Rachel, Glad you are all there, 25th March would be great for me as I am not at work that day and it will be before we move house - easier to get to London from Portsmouth rather than Devon!! Still on my monitored cycle and back up to London for scan on Monday and the...

Hi! Girls, I have not been posting much as life has been a bit full on. Thank you so much for thinking of me Grace. I hope you and hubby are coping ok. It is tough enough dealing with one loss (infertility) without having to deal with two. We went back to see Marie Wren and she basically does not th...

Dear Luce, Great to hear that MORE TO LIFE meeting went well. You are obviously both v. decisive people and determined to get on with life. Sometimes I think I should have made that decision a while ago but I'm still hovering!! Meeting new people is always a great boost. Hope it does the tick for yo...

Dear Luce, Alison, Jen and Grace, Thank you all for last night. It was great to meet some new people with whom I share so many emotions!!! Agree with Grace totally - despite feeling quite nervous about the meeting it all felt very natural. We should definitely do it again. In the meantime - All the ...
