Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Well yesterday I was talking to my cousin on FB who I never really get to chat to as he lives miles and miles away from me and I decided that I would do the usual wind him up about when is he going to have a baby - Told him that I would do it to him as everyone is always doing it to me lol - Anyway it turns out hes been trying for 3 yrs Currently his wife is on Clomid and if this isnt successful his next option is IVF
Once we had finished talking about that side of things he was telling me about a girl at work who is 5 months pregnant - she knows his situation but has been sorta flaunting it - he said that although shes really excited and understandably excited he just wishes that it wasnt so in his face
I think from that whole conversation its funny how although after 8 months I have always worried about feeling let down if AF arrives I have never really sat down with Sam and wondered how he felt - My cousin is quite upset about it all and quite frustrated (I can see why though) but just wanted to share it with you - I guess it sorta reminded me that in all this ttc malarky the one person we shouldnt forget is out hubbys/Other halfs and how they might be feeling.
Anyway I'm gonna shut up now and stop rambling as that probably just sounds like a load of jargon lol

Oooooops Sarah! Remove foot from mouth!!!
I have an old school friend who is currently in the adoption process as IVF and every thing else has been unsuccessful! I felt really bad telling her about my first pregnancy let alone this one! You know how I was telling you, I felt mega guilty!
Some friends of my grandparents have 2 sons who are both married and were both trying for a baby, after tests they found that in 1 couple it was the male who was infertile and in the other couple the female was infertile!!! Needless to say when my grandma suggested the 2 fertile people should get together it didn't go down well and certainly didn't do their friendship much good!!!!
Fingers crossed for your cousin and you!!!!!
