Hi everyone, after looking through your chats for ages i have finally joined as feeling very sad today. My name is mandy and im 37(just). We have been trying to concieve since i was 30 and we had all the routine tx's through our hosp (4 clomid and 2 IUI-all neg) In 2004 we had our 1st IVF after finding out FSH level was high, i didnt respond well to the drugs and only managed 2 folls, we pushed ahead and got 2 embryos and i got a BFP. A miracle- who is my scrummy little boy Billy. Jan 2007 tried again BFN, July BFN, Dec BFN. Started sniffing again 26thfeb 2008. Very poor response again, but we insisted on carrying on, FSH 17.8 and was told no one with a count of 20 can get pregnent but all i could think of was Billys cycle, again to get 2 embryos 1 at 5 cell and 1 at 4 cell. Had period pains since ET so new hadnt worked straight away( this always happens) and have had a BFN this morning. Feel very low and want to try again but am i being selfish to my son and should i just move on and concentrate on what ive got?

Hi and welcome Billsmummy

Just saw your post and wanted to say "No no no not selfish at all!" I don't see why the wish to have children would go away just cos you've already got one?!

I'm soo sorry that you had a BFN today honey ^hugme^ , it's natural that you would be feeling down right now, but you won't feel that way forever... why not give yourself a little time to recover from the BFN and in the meantime, there is a secondary fertility board on here and there's so many lovely friendly helpful girls, we'll have you smiling again before you know it.

Take care honey and link to the secondary fert board is here:

All the best lovey

;D ;D ;D  I'm loving the Star wars references today! I already said on another board that people would be seeing the dark side of Nix today cos I'm not in the mood for any foolishness and here you come with "may the force be with you"!

Thank you for making me smile today :)  And good luck for your follow-up hon
