Hi folks

I know this is not normal practice, and I hope Im not breaking some code of conduct here. If I am please forgive me!

Ive started a group on Facebook thats specifically for all the wonderful friends that have met on here. Im not trying to take anything away from this site - this message board was a total life saver for me! But a lot of people are on Facebook these days and its a good way to keep up to date with people, successful or not, and thought it would be a good idea. I already have three of my Ivf friends from here linked as my friends on Facebook. Ive set it so that not just ANYONE can join - its specifically for us.

So if you would like to join then the group is called Ivf-Infertility Friends and I would love to see you all on there - regardless of what stage you are at (that goes without saying!)

Hi Tony!

Hope all is well with ur boys and that ur settling into fatherhood well (i have no doubt that u are!) :D

I have a facebook account, and would LOVE to join yours, BUT as members from my facebook can see what sites i have joined, i would rather they didnt (if u know what i mean) a lot of my friends and family there dont know about my treatment and i wouldnt want half of them to!

So, dont think i am ignoring u on there, i think its a lovely idea and i hope u get lots of friends onboard ....

Love to u, DW and ur baby twins...

Hi Becky

Okay this reply made me laugh out loud so i just had to reply!

My twins are a boy and a girl.

Ive settled into parenthood well, but not fatherhood as I am a woman and therefore a mother!! They are now 2 1/2 so its been a long time since I was struggling with routines, although i think this stage is so far turning out to be the worst! :?

As for Facebook - I understand. I toyed with the idea of making it secret but then people wouldn't be able to find it and i would have to personally invite everyone. I'm personally very open about the fatct we went through IVF and am very proud that my children came from such a wonderful modern procedure - but not everyone is and its a very sensitive subject!

If you would like to be my friend anyway my email address is stonemonkey79@btinternet.com. ;-) Toni Miller!

Love and kisses

Oh hahaha! Sorry Toni - i thought u was Tony (the guy) who uses the boards - should have realised that the way u spell ur name - how blonde of me (wait for it, ur bonde too lol)

Its not that im not proud of having tmt, and should i get pregnant then i will tell people it's an ivf baby (due to the fact that i have been steralized and my family know this anyhow) its just a personal decision that DH and i have made, i dont want it known to others yet as its enough of a struggle for the 2 of us when it doesnt happen, let alone it being a struggle for in laws and everybody else to deal with. I didnt want u to think that i was keeping it a secret because i was in any way ashamed, cos im not - if i could shout it from the roof tops i would - just not yet, hope u understand ....

P.S - Oh the terrible 2's - i remember those too well (i have 2 kids from previous marriage) but it was a long long time ago - they are now going thru the 'terrible teenager' stage - i have 2 girls - one at 17 (going on 37!) and another one (soon to be) 20 (going on 12 lol) i can only advise u to enjoy them while they are that age, cos they soon grow up and flee the nest - thats the hardest part!

Yes Becky - actually yes, I am Blonde!

I completely understand and its your right to feel however you want to feel! You have no need to explain anything to me.

Like i said - if u wanna be my friend on facebook, without joining the group, or even keep an eye on the group without joining, then that woud be lovely. just look up my email address!

Hope everything works out for you - and if you have any questions dont hesitate to ask!
