Christy: well done to your dh about the travelling. I realize its harder for people with kids to travel, etc, but it shouldnt always be that this without them have any the less reason for not travelling! As for yournsister-in-law?! You are making a huge trip the very least she could do is drive 45 minutes. After all that, have a wonderful trip
Bonnie: how are you feeling now?
Leorira: we didnt get any embryos to freeze last time so it will be fresh. Im hoping the supplements and accupuncture will improve the quality so we have some to freeze should we need them. I would wait until Thursday and then start on Sunday, christmas day, I know you dont celebrate it, but it would be a day when the world's energy is definately more positive
Blue: you arnt being whiny. Your parents in law have to be told, its just too unfair on you to have to go on pretending. Does your sister in law know about your m/c? If she does then shame on her for pushing you to be there and if she doesn't, when she knows hopefully she will back off. I hope you dont have to go to them on christmas day x
Gina: that's tough in terms of being away from family. But next time your mum asks - challenge her - invite her to cme, there is no reason why it should all be one way
Maria: being numb is difficult but as you said, its protecting you too. The only thing is that numbness actually takes a lot of psychological energy to maintain because its holding back so much emotion. So please go gently x
Neffi: im sorry you feel that this cycle hasn't worked. Im hoping its just late implantation but i know this must be awful for you
Lyd: here's hoping one of those embryos is making a bee-line for a lovely spot in your womb
LauraN: you sound exhausted. I hope you sleep well. Sending you some sun
Indigo: best of luck. Probably because im of celtic heritage, I've looked into pagan and wican festivals and traditions in the past. And yule is beautiful. Its an important day where in ireland with the tomb in Newgrangebeing a very important place for gatherings from all over the world for the solstice. So as the sun is reborn on the 21st my wish is for a beautiful creation and rebirth in you
Afm: nice day. My twin sister and i invited mymum's family to my dads for a christmas tea. My mum died 3 years ago on our birthday and my dad is awful at making an effort so we did it in their house. It was funny and nice and my mum was definately hovering. You might remember my uncle died about six weeks ago and he was her youngest brother. He had a wonderful wit which my twin has inherited and so we have a saying here that really fits "he will never be dead while she is alive"
So I'll say good night now and offer a prayer for all of us who have lost parents, babies, loved ones and friends. May they walk with us on our journeys
