Aw darn hormones, this thread has me wellin up ladies!
There is lots I could say but in short, and main -
Bad - Finding out we were very unlikely to conceive naturally
Good - Doing IVF and becoming pregnant
So am ending this year feeling very blessed to be where we are in life, each year will always have ups and downs, but we have got to a point I didn't think we'd reach and I'm so grateful (and fluffy emotional apparently )

We got married
Had an amazing honeymoon in Scotland
Watched team GB at the Olympics! It was the luck of the draw and that I bought the wrong tickets
BIL finally came up and visited.
MrB's settled into his CISCO course. So proud of him for doing this.
Still in the same job with even less chance of promotion.
MrBs health could be better.

H came back safely from Afghan, after a long, rubbish 7 months apart
I quickly fell pregnant with our first baby
We celebrated our first wedding anniversary
We'll spend our first Xmas together in our own home
We may even have our new arrival this year, if we are very lucky
After a horrible battle with many fertility issues, my SIL and Brother are expecting number 2!
I settled into a new job (don't necesarily like it, but a job is a job right now)
I lost my beloved grandad in the last few weeks
Nan is struggling too, and will spend Xmas in hospital by the looks of things
Overall, 2012 has been pretty special, as the latter 2 happened only in the last weeks.

I married the most amazing man i know
I had the most amazing honeymoon in Mexico
Welcomed a brand new nephew into the world
Me and OH became godparents to my best friends little girl
We lost our baby
We had to say goodbye to our Australian Family
Had lots of family issues which seemed to have got worse since our misscarriage which has helped make the last 6 months the worse of our lives.
Even tho i married my OH and we had the most amazing month in the run up to it and after it, i wish that i could start the whole year again for various reasons. So i'm hoping that 2013 will be alot happier for us.

An amazing first wedding anniversary in NYC
Spent my birthday in Paris
Saw my best friend and goddaughters for a whole week, which I absolutely love doing rather than an hour here and an hour there
Got a new kitchen fitted
Met up with some lovely ex MTTC ladies and had a great weekend with them
Saw Starlight Express twice, after wanting to ever since I was tiny!
Still no sign of a baby
Old kitchen gave up completely so we had to live on microwave food for a few weeks
Had to cancel a holiday we'd been looking forward to, with my best friend and our goddaughters
MIL broke her ankle and couldn't walk/drive/do anything for over 3 months
SIL just being SIL (won't even start to go into that!)
Knowing that I'm in my last week of a job I like with people I like (for the most part) and that soon I'll be back to a place I don't like, and my nice lunches with my mum will have to stop.

Watching my gorgeous little boy grow up
Fab holiday in Florida (although very tiring and really need another holiday)
A lovely bonus from work that I still need to decide what to spend it on before they change their mind!
My H's new business venture has gone live and will hopefully do well - he deserves it with the amount of work he's put into it.
Reducing my ADs and feeling better for it
My brother's ex gf passing away from cancer
Another friend being diagnosed with breast cancer, currently going through treatment
Crappy singing company I'm in being crap to me which has taken away most of my social life and ruined my confidence
