    Hi pixie,
     we waited 18 months, but nearly there!  :).

    Would love to meet other parents or potential parents on here, but not sure where people are based?

    papermache, there are a few of us over on the "babies, bumps, and parenting" thread. we're in n lincs (sc unthorpe) but there are folks from all over i'd say :)

    i also post on Rainbow Families which is a bit london-centric but there are a few groups of us dotted around the country who arrange regular (ish) meet ups. if you watch the boards you can spot them when they come up, or you could even suggest one. if your aim is to meet other lesbian parents and parents to be then if you cast your net wide you're more likely to find some like minded people (not to mention loads of support and advice).

    and welcome btw :)

    Hi Hebe


    I would just say go with your gut instincts about clinics. We recently wasted quite a bit of time staying with a clinic we had been with for ages because we didnt listen to our instinct that we should change.

    It was quite hard for us to change because we were mid cycle at the time BUT if we hadnt been I think it would have been a lot easier.

    Good luck!

    Hi there,
    Thought I'd better introduce myself (although I have already gone and jumped in and replied to threads).  We've been TTC for 18 months now and are going to start our second fresh IVF cycle (my other half will be having, hopefully, our first child, and I will be having the second)

    Welcome Hebe & Hales!

    So sorry to hear about your awful experience Hebe, sounds dreadful. I would defo go with your gut instinct re clinics, I'm changing because a. their IVF is too pricey & b. just didn't feel human to them (get in, get out, dont ask q's etc). I initially didn't want IVF but my IUI's didn't work & it will make more financial sense to do IVF as the chances are higher.

    Good luck all! xx
