Hi, my names Vicki and im 34 yrs old and my hubby is 32, we have been together 5 years although only got married in June.  I have a son of 14 and i had a ectopic pregnancy 7 years ago which resulted in me losing my left tube.

We have also found out in the last six months that hubby has diabetes and a over active thyroid for which he is now having to take insulin 4 times daily and tablets, 

We have pretty much been ttc for 3 years and had just started going down the route of having fertility tests done when i fell pregnant naturally, unfortunately i had a miscarriage at 9 weeks which was devastating.  We are now trying again but get the same disappointment every month when AF comes to visit, it really doesn't help that we both have friends and family who have announced that there pregnant and are all due within a 4 month period, in fact it makes me want to scream...  im just really fed up of everyone saying "don't worry it will happen",

Now im just in the position of where to go now.....

Hi Vicki, I know exactly how you are feeling !  Just about everyone around me is announcing they are expecting or are about due or just had a baby.  I've been putting on a brave face and trying to be over the moon for everyone else, but deep down I am hurting like hell.  Another friend announced today !!!  and I have a friend due any day now.  I have no children and feel I may have lost my chance. 

Everyone keeps saying to us "you guys should try....it's the best thing in the world" - they have no idea !!!

Have you had the tests done now ?  Are you going thru the NHS ?

There is a really good book called "Taking charge of your Fertility" - have you got it ?  I recommend it - I learned alot about my body and how to maximise our chances.
