Hi Fiona<br><br>Thanks for asking about me, it's nice to hear from you. I'm doing OK now, still lurking around this site reading how you're all getting on but not posting as I'm having a break from IVF for the moment and don't feel as I have much to contribute. I gave myself a bit of a hard time after the last attempt (when I didn't even make to EC stage due to lack of response). I've been trying to come to terms with the possibility of never having children (after 8 years of trying and 5 IVF failures now) and it was all starting to get on top of me and get me down. I've done lots of crying, talking and thinking and things are getting a bit clearer. We'll possibly have one more attempt in the new year but for the sake of our sanity that will definitely be it!<br><br>Not long to go for you now, it sounds like you're doing really well, and 12 or so follies is brilliant. I'll keep everying crossed for you and really hope you have some good news for us in a couple of weeks - I'm going on holiday on the 17th so I may not know your news before I go, but I'm wishing you all the luck in the world and I'll be thinking of you.<br><br>Love Julie x
Julie, age 35. Married 12 years, ttc for 10 years, 2 ectopic pregnancies, lost both tubes so tried IVF. 7 unsuccessful attempts and have reached the end of the road so not sure where I belong !!

Hi Julie,<br><br>Sorry the last few weeks have been so difficult for you. It makes me so angry when I think that your last attempt failed due to a lack of attention from the hospital - don't they realise how much every attempt chips away at our strength and they should at least do their best - I really do feel for you. <br><br>I think some hospitals are better than others - my NHS appointments for infertility investigations were at the local MATERNITY hospital - I was quite dumbfounded at their insensitivity! And left every time crying my eyes out.<br><br>I wish you all the best for your next go and hope that it'll be the one for you. Please do keep in touch won't you, because we'll be there for you, however you are feeling, and, if it doesn't work this time, who knows, we may be cycling together in the new year. I hope you don't mind if I ask, but have you completely ruled out adopting? I suppose I've not got to that stage yet and I've no idea how I would feel if I did.<br><br>Thanks for your kind wishes - I have felt so much more able to face the rollercoaster knowing I have people to turn to who understand.<br><br>Take Care - make sure your dh gives you lots of TLC and enjoy your hols. Speak soon<br><br><br>Fiona xx

Hi, just read your message about the insensitivity of the NHS. <br><br>I've also had a bad experience on the NHS, just had a Laporoscopy op,just woke up in the recovery ward next to young girl who had an abortion! felt like crying and crawling out of there.<br><br>And another time we waited to find out if IUI had worked ,the day we found out it didnt work the sister in law told us she was pregnant
