Oh Pauline hun - also sending you huge hugs x
I know how frustrating it can be ttc but all I can honestly say is the month I didnt do ovu kits, didnt use preseed, didnt take folic acid and didnt think about it as was so busy was the month I fell I just couldnt believe it - I wont tell you to relax as I know thats not easy when ttc but maybe taking up a hobby or doing something like swimming will help you relax a little and get things moving
If you need to talk you know where I am hun xxx

Pauline and Jen i have my fingers firmly crossed that the new year brings you some good news. I know it is hard when ttc as you can think if nothing else, but like Sarah says try and relax as much as possible and just enjoy spending time with your partner.
I dont know what it is like to be trying for so long to conceive a baby but i can only begin to imagine hwo frustrating it is seeing others getting pregnant and not being able to do so yourself. Sending big hugs and hope you both succeed soon. xx

Hello I have only been on here a couple of times but want to send you lots of love. I was ttc for six years with my first little boy .Were on IVF list, told very unlikely I would ever conceive naturally (polycystic ovaries, dodgy tubes), we decided to forget about babies for a little while and get married - hey presto got pregnant Fin was born 9 months and 11 days after we got married. Starting trying again, just as we thought Fin was a one off,(after 3.5 years) caught again and now have Zak 18 months. Just found out I am 7 weeks pregnant after not trying at all . So guess what I am trying to say is never give up. All those years of heartache were worth it when I look at my boys and realise how lucky I am. xxx Clair

Hi Pauline, I know how you feel, after my mc I wanted to get pregnant as soon as possible, I suppose "giving the life another chance" if you understand what I mean.
It did take nearly a year, mainly I think because my body did need to recover from the mc trauma, and also I can see now that I still had all those hormones sloshing around making me a lot more emotional about it than I was later on.
I know the ovu tests are a pain. My friend who had problems both times conceiving really recommended going to "Dr & Herbs" - you know the Chinese medicine place? I can't speak for myself but she certainly credits them with her second child (OK I think her husband had something to do with it too!).
And don't think you did anything wrong. It does just happen, and you can't blame yourself for the vagaries of nature.

Thanks Cat and all ladies!
I can never tell if it hormones or not that make me feel weepy, always been a bit softy about everything!

I can't say much more than what the girls have said but of course wantedto offer you my support
Please don't feel that it was your fault what happened, you know these things just happen and i believe for a reason, however painful it seems now.
Sending masses of baby dust your way xx xx
