Ohhh I read somewhere on a post that drinking pineapple juice (not from concentrate) and keeping your uterus warm (hot water bottles/ heated grain (?) bags (not with lavender oils though - not sure why no lavender oil tho) warming soups (avoiding too much cold raw foods) can help... thought I'd give it a go  - it surely can't help.

I read that about the pineapple juice so I am doing that already!

Vadergarth and Milliemoos - People are a pain in the ar*e!   My sisters know we are trying but they haven't mentioned it to me for about the past year as they are trying to be sensitive which is good, they both have children.  This lady rep came into work, she is really nice, and when I told her OH was only 35, she said 'why doesn't he want kids then?' because she knows I don't have any.  Luckily the phone rang and I changed the subject.  People just don't think!

I don't have any parents and OH's parents aren't together anymore and luckily live about 50 miles away so we won't be telling them if we go down the IVF route, they will only know if it's successful.  My OH's sister is expecting her first baby in June.

Only my best friend and counsellor know about us still trying and that we are seeing a FS, it's simpler that way!!

Oooh, keep reading great things about this book so have ordered it, every little helps....I sound like Tesco!   ;D

Hugs to you all!  xxx

Think I meant "can't hurt" not help - I'm very much hoping it all helps

That book sounds good Heavenly - I might try and order it...

Luckily I've not read had too much of an issue with people interferring as really only my mum knows. My best friend kind of knows we have been trying a while, but I try and avoid the subject because as wonderful as she is and as supportive as she would be, having taken a while herself, I just want to talk about other things when I am with her. I know if I told her and my other friends everything they would try and be really helpful and lovely, but I am sure it would just make them more awkward about inviting me to things where babies are involvedand give me advice that I just don't want. But then it has its downside as you feel much more alone in it all and every get together I prepare myself for another one being up the duff, I had to go and compose myself when my mate told us all together she was having twins as was standing there biting my lip trying not to cry...

I think I would want to  ^bigbad^ if someone said they had been speaking to someone about my fertility issues even though they are only trying to help. My mum is quite good and just wants me to chill out and not stress about it, but that's easy for her to say having had three with no issues. I cannot believe how little she knows about the whole process either, but then  I guess she never needed to.... I sometimes feel like I know too much....

Hope your day got better Vadergarth. happy weekend

Thanks girls, my day defo got better, went and had lovely cream tea with hubby :-) I don't if I would cope if I didn't talk about it to my best friend, she has 3 gorgeous kids, but has really been amazing through it all for me. After about a year of ttc my mum used to call me every time on day 30 to see if I had come on!!! I had to tell her to stop, but she was only trying to be supportive, but that was pretty suffocating. Anyway, made home made steak and mushroom pie for tea, love cooking, defo therapeutic.

Happy Saturday xxxxx
