Thank you

To all you ladies who've sent me virtual hugs, cake and sympathy - thank you. I really appreciate having you all there.

After a teary Wednesday, i'm actually ok today. I've been madly busy with work this week and had quite a few interesting new jobs come in. I'm feeling really excited about that side of my life. Weird that as one door closes (well, revolves once more really as it's not shut just yet) another opens. Perhaps we're just not allowed to have all parts of our life go well...

I had lunch with the editor of the newspaper I write for and he's pleased with my reviews, a new client has booked three lessons next week, i've been asked to manage another caterer's job next week too and i've also been asked to host a food book launch in October. All of this in a week!

I spoke to Big Hair (our Doc) yesterday. I'd texted him our news and he hadn't replied which was odd. I e mailed and he immediately responded and told me he'd fallen on his phone and had broken it so missed my message. He was disappointed as he'd felt I had a good cycle this time. He said that when you've a low ov.arian reserve (as I do) it can take a few goes to find the embryo that will stick. He made me feel like we can do this. Mr G and I are STILL IN THE GAME.

I've started the DHEA - no effects as yet - and am off to a wedding this weekend where I will mostly be drinking, dancing and having fun with my gorgeous husband. We've done too little of that lately. On Monday i'm going to go back to my healthy regime so next cycle's eggs have had a good run up and not a last minute desperate health kick as i did last time.

Please visit Meredith at Someone Please Knock Me Up - her negative beta is a real blow. Give her a hug.

See you after the weekend - good luck to those still in waiting xx

Glad you are back. You have to find that place that makes you go forward...and just do it. I am glad your doc was positive and gave you the good feeling to keep going! Remember your dream. Here's to good next cycles for both of us.

I'm so, so sorry about AF's visit. I hate hearing anyone else get the "low ovarian reserve" talk too. I'm glad you aren't giving up and I hope you have an amazing weekend with DH!

I love your attitude! And even after a disappointment, you still manage to offer hugs to others and stay positive. Hang in there. It will happen.

Glad to hear you are doing better and there are other things in your life that are cheering you up. That always helps. Have fun at the wedding with your lovely DH!!! I know its a huge blow when an IVF fails but its great you're picking yourself up and going back in the game. Its not easy to do. Good luck to you the next time and I'll be thinking of you.
