This is the first time i have joined a message board for support but after four years(started when i was 36 and i am now 40) of ttc and failing, i feel that i need to "talk "to people who understand what an emotional roller coaster the journey is.

Am sorry for your losses, the heartache we feel really is hard to explain to others, some people just DONT get it, I really hope here you find that help and support that everyone with IF really does need.

Wanted to say Hello and welcome you to FF, my role here of FF as a MOD is to make sure you find your way as easy as possible, hopefully this message will do that :) Am so glad that you have found us, hopefully you will meet like minded people that will help and support you through what can be a very hard stressful journey. There are many members here on FF with a true understanding of what you are going through at all stages that infertility throws at you :( FF has brought so many people together and helps form many new friendships that may last many years, I certainly have and my life is richer for it. It's hard when family and friends don't fully comprehend what the IF journey entails and the emotions that go with it, That's where FF comes in to play.
I hope that you will find the links i have left you helpful and direct you where you need to be until you find your feet, which won't be long i can assure you. If there is anything that you still need to find give me or any MOD a shout and we will be happy to help you :)
