Thank you for your amazing support

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to all you wonderful peeps for the most amazing, lovely messages when I posted on Sunday that our last ivf attempt with my own eggs had failed. I really appreciated each and every precious message and I'm so sorry I didn't respond to each one-have just felt to emotionally drained, I just had no words!

Without this forum I think I would seriously lose the plot.my OH isn't a talker and half my friends haven't even remembered to ask how the test went so this forum is my support & safe haven in these hard times!

I've realised I've probably missed everyone else's news while wallowing in my own self pity.I feel like I'm going to be sad 4ever but I can't feel sorry for myself indefinitely so I'm pulling my socks up and going to start trying to catch up on everyone's posts

Again big love and thanks to u all ❤️❤️❤️

I know, it's disappointing. A few stragglers have remembered last few days and I think it seems to be a lot were confused or vague over my test date. Weirdly it's 3 of my closest friends I haven't heard from and I refuse to text them to let them know if they can't be bothered to ask when I have friends/acquaintances I've only know for a short while that have been more concerned!! I will try not to fall out over it but I know myself and know I won't forget!!!

Glad to see things moving in right direction for u, congrats again on engagement, next cycle planned and new bunny home yet? xxxx

You are entitled to feel sad and no one on here will judge you for that. If anyone understands the enormity of it all, it's us. It does take time to begin to feel the heaviness lift but it does slowly but surely. Look after yourself and just allow all of the medication time to exit your body. That will really help to lift you. Big hug X

Oh nooo! I spoke too soon! Hope u feel better soon x

Thanks. Feeling fed up already and not even started stimming yet. It all feels a bit much at the mo. With the first round, I had a sort of excitement but with this round, I just feel empty inside so coping with the side effects is even harder. I even started googling adoption options today. x

I thinks that's a fairly normal response to this totally abnormal situation we are all in!! And if u r anything like me, regardless that plan A isn't even done yet, I'm still always looking at plan b & c!!! My oh can only cope with plan a -he can't deal with too many options at once!! I have to have the lot in front of me!!

Adoption would have been my choice from the start but my oh won't consider it sadly!!

I hope that even whilst looking at other options, that I'll never need them cos I'll get ur BFP this round xxx

Take the time Cloud...no one is judging and you have lost a great deal. In your shoes, I would be an emotional wreck so I am picturing you as someone with a lionheart. Resilient. Courageous. Proud. And you are suffering now but you are not beaten yet. Just take it a day at a time. It's going to be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end!

Hugs xxx

Thanks hun, it is hard not to get mad at them isn't it?! I honestly wish I'd never been so open about what we were doing then I couldn't be hurt by their lack of empathy/interest but it's difficult to go backwards once it's out there!

Hope your cycle is going well xxx

Oh Cloud, I missed your news as I took time out myself after my BFN last month and have only just come back to the site so you're doing far better than me!! I'm so very sorry that this cycle didn't work out for you and sorry that you haven't had the support you need from those you care about. I feel I was really let down by one of my closest friends and am not sure how I'm going to rebuild that friendship but am focusing on what I do have and am just taking a bit of time out for now.

I hope you are able to take the time you need to heal, and if finances allow take a holiday (we're currently in Italy and it's doing is the world of good!!) and then decide where your future takes you. Whatever you decide to do I wish you all the very best. Xx

Oh no I missed your news to! I'm so sorry! It's sh*t isn't it!!?? Hopefully we can lean on each other to get thru it!!

I'm really feeling a holiday altho it may be a while as I'm a dog sitter so all booked up for the summer but might be nice to have an aim!! or even a nice weekend away before the summer dog rush!!

Very jealous of Italy!! Enjoy xxxx
