Can I join too...cycling May/June?

Postby wildfox » Sun May 22, 2005 4:16 pm


I am Steph, aka 'wildfox', I am 39, live in the UK and have just begun IVF treatment (sniffing) on 15 May.

I had one failed IVF in Dec 02. I commenced my 2nd IVF in Feb 03. Luckily I became pregnant and had a little daughter, Amber, in Nov 03 after a terrible pregnancy (and tragic time with my Dad).

I am finding this really hard to write, and I am not sure if it is coming out like I want it to sound, and I feel so guilty being on here because I already have had a baby. But I really feel I need some friends, who understand what we go through.

I hope I can be of any help/support to everyone here and hope to be able to rant/cry/laugh/scream with you all..

Love Steph xx

Hi Steph

Welcome here.

As Nicki has said come and join the June/July thread on the General Forum - there are a lot of us going through treatment around the same time. It does help to share sometimes :D

Congratulations on your daughter - stories like yours give us all the hope and encouragement we need to carry on with this. Thank you for sharing.

Hopefully see you on the General Forum soon.

PMA and hugs

Hi Steph

and a very warm welcome to you and Amber 8) 8) !!!
You have been through the process and had a success!!! what more could we ask for as inspiration :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just cos you have one success it doesn't make the next time easier, we have girls on the board on 2nd time around or with 2ndary infertility. We are a very potty diverse and supportive bunch, so hope you feel at home very fast. The board is very busy compared to some boards, and we cover the time zones so you'll find people around at most times.

So your wisdom and your hormonal girly moods are both welcome and so come and join us on the general forum

Love bigJ 8)

Hello Steph and welcome.

Congratulations re. Amber. The others have said it for me but if this board was only full of doom and gloom stories of failure we'd all leave! We need the happy stuff too! As it is we're very mixed in how we got here + age, location, experience, history etc. everyone is welcome.

Like you I have an IVF daughter and totally understand why you'd feel 'guilty' but it doesn't really apply, we're all in the same boat with each new tmt and success helps to give hope to everyone.

Good luck with your tmt,
Me: 44, DH: 31

Hello Nickimark, Little P, Big J, Sandra and Debra..

Nice to 'meet' you all, and thank you for making me feel so welcome.

I did return to a previous message board I used before, and there are so many new names, and no-one wanted to reply to me, except those who knew me from before. I got so paranoid and upset, and thought I needed a fresh start as well, so here I am. I can put my emotions down to PMT/Synarel/Period. I came on today, exactly as I should!! Hopefully my last period for a while!

Good Luck everyone, especially Big J and NickiMark, who will be testing soon.
Debra, congratulations on your IVF daughter...can't believe we are here again!

See you on the General Forum..

Love Steph x
Little P...I'll see you probably on the June/July thread
Sandra..good luck with our next cycle..

See you over there.
