maybe you want to be done...
or maybe you think that this is your last chance and your scared about that..

it doesnt have to be your last chance unless that is what you want..

i know most of the time i am ok with not going with ivf again ..

but i would love to have a baby that would only know me as there mom.
i dont know if that will ever go away..

e-mail me if you want....
you have been such a good friend to me i wish i could be the same for you..
we werent blessed with our babies to raise here but we our blessed with our grandaughter
and all of our many adopted and foster children that touch our lives
and i am glad to add that our 6th grandchild will be born this spring!!!!

I think its because I have gone through crap with it all and have come out the other side and probably nearly accepted that I am not going to be a Mum , and then now I have to think about putting myself through it all again , its more scarey I think cause you know whats going to happen if it fails . BUT on the other hand I dont want to get to 40 which is only 22 month away!!!! and regret anything so I feel I must do this go and let nature decied this time is it a yes or a no ?

you hang in there..
listen to yourself and all the great advce that you have given so many women..

have you thought about a saragot or adoption..

and just because you turn 40 doesnt meen a damn thing..
women are having babies over 40 all over the world!!!!!!!!
age shouldnt have anything to do with it..
only you and cam and what you 2 can take..

a huge part of me would jump at the chane to go again but another huge part of me says that i have a full life and that i have moved on to the next stage of my life. i dont know if i or hubby could make it threw barrying another child...

just know that i think that you are a wonderful friend and any child would be blessed to have you for a mother :)
