Hi my name is kate .dh and i have been trying for twelve years for second child.Our son is thirteen and the joy of our lives.we have unexplained infertility.We had i.v.f./i.c.s.i in june 2000 but no luck.I had i.u.i. on tuesday and am now in the land of waiting .I have spent the last few days on and off this website which is excellent.Also subjecting myself to repeats of 'test tube babies' on the discovery channel so happy one minute sad the next depending on the couples success or failure.
Great to know so many others know wht we are going through

Hi kate,  :)
Welcome to FF!
I too have a son, he's 10 and I now feel so fortunate to have him. His dad and I split up when he was very young, and I've been trying for no.2 with DH since our wedding in '03. Just assumed I'd fall as quickly as I did with DS (wasn't even trying for him!!) We have our first consultation for IVF in April.
The longing for another doesn't get any easier does it ?!
I wish you loads of luck for your 2ww, and really hope it works for you,
Good Luck,
Rachel xx ^daisy^

Hi ladies
Sharon good luck for the 7th ^goodluck^ ^goodluck^ ^goodluck^ april ^reiki^ ^reiki^
My ds has always wanted a brother or sister and just cant understand either.We havent told him about the tx because if it fails it would be too hard on him.If the i.u.i.doesnt work we are going on to another try at i.v.f./i.cs.i. but i think after that maybe we might stop as i am not gettting any younger and i think you have to maybe just get on with your life after so long.

Hi Kate,

Just wanted to wish you good luck for the 5th.

I also have a ten year old son and have been ttc for eight years. This site has been invaluable in getting me through some really difficult times. Am now trying to decide whether to go for one more IVF – just don't know if I can handle it failing.

Love
Nikki

Hi Nikki It is hard to know when to call it a day.If we don't get bfp we are having one last go at i.v.f. and they we are stopping.I am 43 this year and age is not on my side but i think it is very hard not to say oh just one more go and maybe we will be lucky.Only you can decide all the best with whatever you decide.

Hi, I also have the tough decision of saying that enough is enough after this cycle.  On 4th 2ww at the moment.

Normally after a failed cycle I throw myself into organising the next and focusing on that , and that it could be the ONE for us, this helps me a little to get over my pain and dissappointment.  Tho this time we have said that this is our last cycle -we think 4 attempts at IVF has been enough for us - it's so demanding physically, emotionally, and financially (we're self funding and to be honest when I think of the money we;'ve spent I'm amazed that we've managed to get it together -DH has worked his balls off!) along with the fact that I just can't comprehend that after being pg many times naturally that IVF just doesn't seem to work for us - makes me so confused with my body and hard to accept.

Anyway its not over til its over - so ever hopeful this is the one and we can wave goodbye to this whole experience with a smile on our faces.

Take care all Nx
