Hi All<br><br>I don't post here vry often these days I am one of the very old crowd that were part of the site probably 2 years ago.<br><br>There are a few names that I know and it is wonderful to read about Fionalk , Mandy and Aich getting pregnant.<br><br>I had 6 failed attempts at ICSI and gave up. We are now on route to adoption and whilst it is hard I know it's right for us.<br><br>But what I really want to say is that all of you going through the failuire of a a cycle or giving up on treatment it does get better, it takes a while but you do get there. <br>I do have a few tears, now and again, and a lum p in my troat when someone I know gets pregnant but I deal with it. <br>You all will feel better it is just a day by day recovery.<br><br>Love<br>Lucy

Lucy<br>Lovely to hear from you. We had a cycle around the same time early in the year. I have thought about you and wondered how you were.<br>I know that Adoption is a rollercoaster ride too and am wishing you the very best of luck with it. <br>You are right about taking things one day at a time. As you may have read I am at a bit of a cross roads. Am taking the next few weeks off and we will make 100% decision in January.<br>I would love to hear about your new son or daughter when they arrive. Wishing you the very best of luck with it all and also wishing you and your DH a very happy Christams.<br>Gracexxx

Lucy - thank you so much for posting. Your final cycle was about the time of my 4th earlier this year, and you (and Fiona LK) were part of the reason I pursued acupuncture. Like Grace, I'm at a bit of a crossroads at the moment, and its so encouraging to hear from someone who's that bit further down the road and beginning to feel more positive.<br><br>Please do keep in touch, however occasionally, and wishing you a really happy and exciting 2004.<br><br>Alison x

Hi Lucy,<br> Great to hear an up date from you. I often think about you and the old gang when I first jumped on this infertility rollercoster. I would be very interested to hear about your addoption journey. I am glad to hear you are feeling better. I know how hard these life changing decisions are. As you said we are PG, very early days, we go for 2nd scan tomorrow. It took us 5 goes and we were near the end of the IVF road.<br><br>I wish you all the luck for your future happyness.<br><br>Mandyxx
