Thanks

I know your right. I cannot believe how quickly he is growing and changing, Think this is whats making it worse. I feel Iv failed at so much things already, not being able to BF the biggest one. I love DS so so much, He is truly beautiful and if I never have another I still have been blessed with him and I can live with that but not without trying IYKWIM.
Thanks for being so understanding. I dont know if its cuz I know we probably will struggle with a seond I want another so quickly or if we were able to conceive like healthy fertile people I would be the same?

I don't know really. My situation was a bit different - DD1 was conceived easily, with no assistance. But, I still knew that I wanted another one and that I didn't want a huge gap between them but didn't feel up to TTC again when DD1 was as young as TJ. When I found out that we needed help I was like 'I WANT ONE NOW!!!!'. I think, probably if I'd known, or I'd been in your situation I'd have been like you and wanted to get on with it almost immediately!

For us, we needed to know we'd tried, hence the clomid and then IVF. We were happy to look at egg donation and had discussed adoption with each other, and my sister who's a social worker in that area and would have gone down that route to complete our family but I still needed to be able to say we'd tried everything first. We were very lucky that it worked.

I still sometimes hint at my DH about adoption as its something I'd still like to explore but he's adamant that 2 is enough so that's us done! Not much chance of an 'accident' and so I still feel odd sometimes knowing that's me done with the pregnancy/young baby stages. I'll have to wait til the girls have babies and then I can be a very involved Grandma!

Girls, you are both taking the words right out of my mouth. I can 100% relate to this need to know that I have tried everything possible and to be able to put my hand on my heart and say I gave it my best. I want more than anything a sibling for my dd. I need to be able to live without regret and that means taking this journey to the end. Unfortunately at the moment I don't have my dh's support. He thinks 5 BFN's are enough. I have an appointment with my Cons on Thursday and haven't yet talked to DH about it. My last tx was a failure from the start as they only managed to get 2 eggs from me. It quite possibly could be that my Cons will advise me to knock it on the head now, in which case I won't have to go down the arguing with dh road...hense not having talked to him about it.
Pammy, I think you are right in saying that you feel the urgency because you know it is not going to come easily to you.... I think these fertilitly problems do bring out the fight in us.... But as we have all said, we are already blessed to be able to call ourselves mummies....but that doesn't take away the longing...I don't think anything will.
Good luck to all us girls in our quest for No 2!

Thanks Ali! I am quite nervous about the outcome. It could well be that he will tell me it is time to knock it on the head in which case I will have to close the door to this chapter in my life. I have no idea how I will be feeling this time tomorrow...and then of course, if he says it is worth still trying, then I will end up having arguments with DH...which ever way it goes, i think I have a bumpy ride ahead of me. Thanks for you thoughts though! Will update tomorrow! xfingers xfingers xfingers

Hi
I have only just noticed this thread, i feel i have exhausted the others by discussing my worries about trying to concieve number two-(More info in my diary)
I suppose the main thing i have in my mind is the age gap between son and if we have another and also about the fact he is the only child in his class with no brothers or sisters, it just makes me sad and also embarrased as i worry that all the other parents think i dont want anymore or that i am to wrapped up in my job because i really am not. Im always analysing magazines or people i come into contact with at work to see if they have bigger age gaps- its mad because i know a lot do. Am also totally panicing about DH sperm analysis, he took it in yesterday, although we have no inication of problems i just keep researching it. Am going crazy- i really need to calm down as i suffer from stress related IBS and its real bad the past few days.

Sorry if i am waffling, i dont talk face to face about these worries with anyone part from DH and he tries but just doesnt fret as much as i do.

All the best to you all x x

Men never do. I am not saying that they don't want what we do but they just don't have the same urgency for drive to get it. All that I get from DH is 'lets see how it goes' and I just nod and smile while secretly going through my cycle in my head and buying OPKs on the sly :snigger:

Hiya hun

The reason we have a specific section for secondary infertility is because it IS a real issue with the same worries as someone trying for their first child, but it can be hard for those trying for their first to read diaries/posts when they themselves are childless. Does that make sense?

Would you like me to move your diary over into this section? x

I totally agree Eeyore, I am ashamed to admit, pre-William I struggled to chat with the ladies 'over here' :O but having been blessed with our miracle I realise that the longing does not dissapear, it just changes slightly. It is great to have a section that we don't have to feel guilty for wanting more, oooh I feel like Oliver :snigger:

I was always a bit conscious of posting in areas of FZ where other ladies were trying for their 1st. I didn't post huge amounts in my cycle buddy thread even but found a lovely home in the TA area where there were lots of women in the same boat.

Welcome newyearhopes and everyone else - I hope you find the huge support here that I did.

Hi Newyearhopes,
welcome to this lovely thread where we can feel free to say we want more.
A quick update from me, more detailed in my diary, but basically need to talk to DH about trying again as i saw my cons yesterday....and he said the only way to know if I have any ovarian reserve left is to start stimms....but my problem is dh....last time we talked was a few months ago and he had a big paddy and it resulted in us not talking for a few days. I hate arguing with him, but I won't have a choice if he is going to try and dig his heels in. Anyway, now it comes down to timing, when to drop the news on him that I have seen the Dr and we ARE trying once more!!!.......wish me luck girls! xfingers xfingers

Thanks Alibird!
Well I have spoken to DH and I managed to divert a paddy! And although he is less than happy with what I want to do, I don't think he is going to stand in my way! Woohoo . So now I just have to get the meds sorted, let the cons know that we are good to go. To be honest, I am not going to get my hopes up, with 5 failures behind me it is hard not to. Also for my sanity and my families sanity it is better I remain realistic about it.... it's a long shot, but still worth a try!

Ali - where are you up to in your quest for No 2?

clap well done Erkani clap

We are still at the 'see how it goes' stage, well DH is but I am doing what I can. My cycles have been all over the place since stopping BF so really difficult to follow my cycle at the moment. I had some bloods done yesterday to see whats going on but that is about the extent of assistance I can expect as zero funding and unfortunately another cycle of TX is out of our financial reach . So once I get the FSH/LH etc results back, if all is well I will start charting again and am going to try the cough medicine theory as I think it may help me.

I bet you wish you hadn't asked now :snigger:

Hi Lannielou
Welcome, hope all goes well for you on Monday. June will fly by, Always seems like ages away but doesnt take long in coming round.

Erkani glad the cons were positive and that you have managed to get Dh's support, I dont know how my DH would be about cycling again either although its the women who suffer the most of it. Grated they have the awful job of samples to give and hear us complaining about all our SE but ultimatley its us who go through the worst of it physcally and emotionally.

AF arrived Wednesday, bang on 28 days so for my first cycle seems normal enough. Starting with clearblue monitor this month and see what that says.
Good luck to all the TA ladies

The theory is that certain types of cough medicine that thins the mucus on your chest also does the same to your CM, making it a better enviroment for the ickle swimmers. Because I am 'unexplained' there is a chance that my issue is CM related annd because our IVF cycle was very straight forward and successful also makes it promising, if that makes sense?!?! Either way, for the sake of £3.50, its worth a go.

Hey Lannielou, xfingers for your TX, look forward to following your progress

Pammy, let me know how you get on with your Clearblue moniter, I have been checking them out but havn't purchased yet, you can be my test subject :snigger:

Bloomin expensive but just wanted an idea of my cycle. Could take a while for it all to settle down and it advises you wait 2 AF's before using it.
Good luck with the cough medicine. I have heard that too about the CM

Hello, can I join you lovely ladies?

OH & me are both 31, I have a beautiful dd from a previous r/ship who is now 13 (there's gonna be one heck of an age gap :happy: )
Me & Mr Flump have been TTC for pretty much 2 years. GP referred us for fertility investigations in December 2009, we've had one appointment with a registrar in Jan 10 who arranged the usual tests. Mr Flump's first SA was not good ( low count, low motility, 3% normal forms) The registrar wanted me to book a follow up in April/May time but we couldn't get an appointment until August becuase Mr Banerjee is so booked up. The joys of the NHS I spose.

I've had a hsyterosalpingogram, an ultrasound & all the day 2 & 21 blood tests, we're currently waiting for hubby's 2nd SA to be analysed. I've had no results back from any of my tests what so ever. We've got an appointment to see Mr Banerjee at the Lister Hospital Stevenage on 3rd August. We really don't know what to expect, although thanks to FZ we know enough to appreciate that results like Mr Flump's mean we're looking at the probability of ICSI, and that's without knowing any of my results :S

We're trying to stay positive but as you all know, sometimes it's really hard & it feels like EVERYONE else is having babies except you & you get really fed up about it. We're just hanging on in there to see the consultant in August & take it from there. We may well look into self funding cos the NHS are taking forever & Mr Flump is in the Army & could be sent to far away lands at some point in the next 2 years which might make sperm retrieval difficult eh? :snigger:

Well, phew. That's enough from me. Lovely to meet you all x

H Flump,

I hope your appointment in August goes well...but having to wait all that time to find out the results of all your tests is appalling. Not being in the UK and not having first hand NHS experience I don't know if that is the norm, but nevertheless I think it is terrible that you shouldn't be told what you are dealing with until months later. I know exactly what you mean about the frustrations of seeing everyone else going on for No 2....I am just thankful at least I have No 1. It does change the want for No 2, but it does make it that bit easier to swallow.

Good luck with your appointment and there is always someone on here ready with an ear!

Thanks ladies

Apparently the only reason we've had to wait so long is because Mr Banjerjee is so good at what he does, that's why we're hanging on in there. Of course, i am miffed that I haven't had any results, I've phoned his secretary but she can't tell me anything over the phone.

I know I'm so lucky and blessed to have my beautiful daughter, it's just that my hubby hasn't had the experience of seeing his child come into the world. He has a fantastic relationship with my daughter, but still, it doesn't stop that intense desire for our own child. I'm sorry if my last post wasn't very positive (I've just read it back & thought i sounded like a right whingey moo), I was having a down day about it. But thanks for the support, I'll be hanging around x

Just wondering if anyone elses OH was reluctant to go for tests? We conceived no problem with the first, but now after 15 months, I feel we should be getting some tests done. I've had my first physical exam and bloods done by the GP and all got the all clear, is there any point me going for more tests if my OH won't? He thinks it will just happen and should be left to nature......I'm inpatient and want to know why it's not happening for us! Anyone else experienced this or any advice?? AF is on it's way and feeling blue :-(

Hi RM,

Mr Flump is also reluctant to get his tests done (it took an extra three months to drag his butt down to the clinic for his 2nd sperm test) I don't know if all men are like this but it seems like mine would rather play ostrich than deal with it.
The first SA he had came back really quite poor & it did hit him hard. There seems to be so much more stigma attached to men with fertility issues, like they're not a proper "man" or other such nonsense. We've all heard the term Jaffa being slung around as an insult. You're absolutely correct, there's not much point in you being prodded, poked & whatevered if he won't do his part, which lets face it is much less physically taxing than the tests we endure. See if he'd be willing to let you help him produce his 'contribution', it might make it more appealing to him ;)

In the meantime, have some :chocs: and a [zx127] & I hope you feel a bit better soon x

Thanks, I think he is just a bit scared. I'm sure if another six months we are still trying he'll consider tests, I just need some patience!

Hi ladies,

I hope you don't mind me joining in. We are trying for no2. I had a very late AF and got my hopes up, not sure if M/C or just late. We have been increasing [zx084] to see if this helps!!!!!! No 1 was an FET so we are waiting for an appointment with our GP to be rereferred to look at 2nd FET as I am going to be 41yrs old in Sept. Not sure if we will have to have a load of tests again, hoping nothing too invasive.

I wish you all the best

:poke2: I'm here

It feels like my life in just one 2ww after another at the moment. I am only 2 dpo so am still quite chilled at the moment (but check again in 10 days :snigger: )

We have only been TTC naturally for 7 months but am already starting to get a bit downhearted about it and one of my NCT friends has just announced she is pg with #2 which is fab news but you still get that twang.

Oh no, what a depressing reply, I am sorry, here is a smiley face to make up for it :cheese:

Thanks,

I went to see karate kid with DS today it was great! I got a bit emotional though tears just kept coming. hee hee, I hid them from DS though, lol these drugs just mess with your head!
:snigger:

Roll on Tuesday or scan day. Has anyone else been on 450 gonal everyday, it seems a bit excessive to me? I used 300 or most of last treatment, they put it up to 450 towards the end of treatment but not all the way through like this time! Scary, my belly is going to get huge, well bigger than it is now! :snigger:

All in the process or getting my beautiul sibling or DS! xfingers

Louis, I was only on 300 but they must know what they are doing and as long as you don't over stim, the more the merrier and xfingers that your belly will continue to grow (for other reasons of course :snigger: )

Good luck for tomorrow.

This months cysle is being a bit wierd, I have had wet CM but no EW and my temp has gone back up but not as high as usual and my cervix still seems to be nice and open ?( Oh well, it just means lots of bedding - shame.

Gem, any news on the swimmers yet?

Just wanting to pop in and say hi! I think this is the right place for me to be in fertilityzone from now.
Wanting to wish you all the best with trying for that second baby and quickly introduce myself. We're trying to get pregnant with another baby. Our little boy was born last August after IVF. Trying naturally at the moment - you just never now - but have an appointment this Thursday afternoon at BCRM to discuss a FET.

The FET is a long shot - we only have 1 frostie! We will be doing it unmedicated so the big chance of our little frostie not surviving the defrost won't mean that I'd be medicated up to the eyeballs for nothing. Also I had two embryoes transferred with our IVF cycle and the one baby, so I'm very realistic about it making it through that stage as well. I've also had 3 miscarriages before as well - so will very much be taking this stage by stage.

I'm going to try and give this ttc and FET a give it a go attitude and re-evaulate in the new year if no luck by then. Me and DP will probably then think about booking an IVF round in January.

Good luck to us all!! Especially with your scan tomorrow Louis
