I'm so sorry to hear your news. Definitely think it's time for you to change your approach and look at the alternatives. Moving on to IVF seems the most obvious path to choose - but I'm sure you'll be discussing all your options with your clinic.

Again, I'm really sorry it didn't work for you - I know how much you want this.

(PS - You are fantastic in your support of other people. You should be very proud.)

Oh Nicki I am so so sorry I was so hopeful for you. This is so hard. You will make the right decision in your own time regarding whether you stick with iui or look at IVF. Don't make any decisions just yet - give yourself time to heal, which you will.

Lots of love and hugs xxxx
