Hi girls

Back from my hols and good to hear from you.

Really sorry to hear your news Amanda, I had been thinking of you and hoping everything was going fine. Sorry to hear about your father-in-law too, I hope things are a lot better for him now. I really do hope you get away for that holiday. Hope Ruby is okay after her op. Oscar has been to a dog sitters while we were away. I was really worried but it seems he had a fantastic time. He seems a bit peeved to be home to be honest. The lady really fell for him and had tears in her eyes when we went to collect him, I almost felt guilty taking him back!!
Really hope you are okay though, you are in my thoughts.

Alison, good news that you went back for the dreaded review. At least you can go away now without it hanging over your head. I am sure you are getting really exited about the trip now...you lucky things, am dead jealous. We are talking about doing a similar thing within the next year or two,so will really look forward to hearing all about your adventures.

Luce you sound in good spirits which is great. This weather does help does n't it. I just think that is the way things go for us up and down is n't it? as time goes on hopefully the down bits get less and less.

Hope you are okay Jen. Thinking of you and really hoping everything is going to work out for you.

Hope things are going well for you too Lou. I am sure you are making the most of the sunshine down there. Let us know how you are getting on.

Great idea to meet up but I am afraid bit short notice for me,also tomorrow is another birthday for me!!! they seem to be coming around mighty fast now. Not really looking forward to it in alot of ways, just a reminder of how quickly time is passing...sorry, don't mean to be maudlin I guess it's a mixture of post holiday and birthday blues.

We really had a great holiday though,very, very relaxing. We have had a stressful few months and did n't realise how strained we were until we got completely away. Did n't think or even talk about ivf much. I thought I would be ready to face it again in the summer. Summer is here and I know I am not. I just want to have a normal life and can't really do it just now. I still think we will,but don't know when and then again maybe we just won't.

I would love to see you all. When are you going Alison. Next week one evening any good I could do Wed or Thursday?

Bye for now

Love to all

Hi - sorry not to have logged on regularly enough to have responded about tonight. Lovely to hear from Grace, Luce and Amanda. This is just a quick message to say that I could do next Wednesday (can't do Thursday I'm afraid) so it would be lovely to see as many people as possible then. I've got 3 weeks left now til I go away and am at that stage that I think I'll never get everything done, either at work or various bits and pieces I should sort before I go - it doesn't really seem real though that I'm going!

Much love

Alison xx

Hi just popped back in to make sure you are all ok. I always read your posts and never forget you all and like to see where you are all at.
Lou - sorry about SA - frozens can be better than 50% - yep they can be worse but with 3 tmts on frozen and 6 taken out we have never lost one! And they work but it's a toughie and a long way to go.

All these holidays and travelling sound super - I wish........... but then I have what I want at the moment and know all of you would love to swap places - I have never forgotten this side of the board and how it kept me sane after the death of Oliver.

Grace - I constantly think of you and wonder how you are. I don't bore you with emails every 5 mins as I consider it insensitive but want you to know you are in my thoughts constantly. I wish I had a magic wand really I do - it all seems so unfair and birthdays are a reminder of what has past but think of it this way they can be a reminder of what can come in the future................... let's hope.

To all of you - wherever you are in your thought processes and tmt or stages etc, I hope you all find your dreams very soon as I cannot think of any more deserving people
