  • Hi Anghun. Wishing you all the best of luck with your second icsi . 8 years is a long long time. My husband and I have been trying for over 3 years now with 2 miscarriages which is heartbreaking but we are still trying our very best to stay positive.

    All my fingers and toes are crossed for you.


  • Thank you wizzle and Molly :) fingers crossed for you too x

  • Thank you cal for your reply :)

  • Hi Anghun, my husband and I have also been trying for 8 years - with not the slightest hint of success. I always wanted a big family and never thought we'd struggle to have children, but every month for 8 years we've hoped the next month would be it. We're on our first attempt at ICSI, I'm on down-reg at the moment. I wish you lots and lots of luck - I know exactly how you feel. Hugs, Kx

  • Thank you Karen, wishing you luck , fingers and toes crossed :) 8 years is a long time but I try to stay positive - some days a little harder. We did our first icsi last year everything went really well until the end which was heartbreaking but i am ready for the next go now :)

  • It took us 8 years and 6 rounds to get our little girl, it took a lot of overtime to pay for our treatments, but so worth it in the end. Even after we had her, we tried 2 more times for a sibling. I'd like to say it gets easier, but it never does. There's so many emotions involved with wanting to have children. And innocent remarks by well meaning people that hurt to the core. I could write a book about all the things people have said and suggested to me!

    Don't give up. Talk to your partner and while you wait for your turn, take pleasure in the simple things.

  • Thank you filmgirl , yes there is soooo many emotions we go through and like you said some peoples remarks really hurt! I am looking forward to my second go I think because I know a bit more of what to expect I was so darn scared the first time ha with no reason to be x

  • Hi Anghun, I understand exactly how you feel, it was our anniversary yesterday too and it's just tinged with sadness that we don't have a family yet. I'm trying to have faith that we'll get there. Taking pleasure in the small things sounds like good advice from filmgirl101, I will try that more. We'll be doing our second ICSI in the next few weeks. Good luck to you xxxx

  • Thank you Maria, fingers crossed for you too :) x

  • I know how you feel, today is our nine year anniversary. Have had four failed ICSI, one which was a miscarriage. Just about to have our fifth try. Just keeping the faith and being grateful for everything I have. Best of luck to you. Xx

  • Thank you for your reply twobluelines, I struggled with having one failed icsi I don't know if i could handle four! Fingers crossed for you xx
