NEW PARENT CHAT THREAD

Ah pip, it's sad isn't it, leaving their first wee home behind? My DH thinks I'm nuts because I keep saying I'm not sure if I want to move. We have such happy memories in this house but I am excited about the new place as we will have a lot more space and a better garden. I'm a bit worried that R won't like it and will ask to go home again! Hope he's ok with it all. Hi net, good to hear from you! It sounds like E is doing well with the potty training. It's so hard to know what goes on in their w...

Hey ladies, good to hear from you all! Cheenab, hope the boys are feeling better now. Must be hard when they are all sick. Heather, glad you have got some appointments sorted for H. It sounds like he will do well with the potty training. It's been a nightmare with R. If I even talk about it he just holds on to his pee all day and gets himself in a terrible state. Yesterday he held in for 13 hours and was clearly in pain. I don't know what to do. Can't decide if I should just leave it a while or ...

NHS FET at RFC

I've had a private and NHS fet at the rfc and wasn't weighed for either. Don't worry and best of luck x

Hi ladies, Heather I hope you are having an amazing time in Vegas. I'm so jealous, it's my favourite place ever! Hope you get sorted with the tests for H soon. Great that he's making some progress with the speech. Net are you having any more success with the potty training? We seem to be going backwards. R completely refuses to sit on the potty or wear pants. If I talk about it too much he holds onto his pee literally all day and ends up screaming in pain. I decided to just back off a bit from i...

Private FET in Belfast

Hi little orchid, thanks for replying. I am going to go to the review too although my husband can't get out of work so I'm currently trying to rearrange it. Hoping I don't have to wait too long. I don't really know what I'm expecting from it but it's good to know they are happy to answer questions. We seem to be in exactly the same boat. I too feel strongly that I'm not ready to stop trying for another baby. Unfortunately I just can't see how we can afford to have a full round of IVF just now. T...

Hi little orchid, not sure if you ever pop in here anymore? Was just wondering how your review went? I'm only having mine next week and wondering is there even any point going. Were they able to offer you any further assistance / guidance? I hope everything is well for you and that if you decided to go again it all works out xx

Hi Net, it's so good to hear from you. I'm sorry for the silence, I've been meaning to post for weeks but your update has prompted me to do it! I really hope this chat isn't coming to an end. It would be such a shame after all this time and after we've all been through so much together. I always think it would be lovely if we all lived close enough to meet up some day. I'm sorry you are having trouble with the potty training. I can't offer any advice but I can sympathise! I am having a similar p...

What stage is everyone at now? And how's it going? Miss the chats on here x

So sorry dusky. It's not any easier even when you already have a baby even though you know how lucky you are. Look after yourself xx

Hi everyone, Oh pip, I know how you feel! I get so sad when I think about how I'll never hold another wee baby in my arms. Maybe have a chat with your DH and see how he feels about it? R is very hard work at the minute too. He constantly has tantrums. I've actually been beginning to wonder if there's something wrong with him as I feel like no matter where I go he's the only child not cooperating or making a scene! It's probably just a difficult age though and I think he is spoilt with being an o...

Hi Cheenab, hope F is better soon. Good news that you will still get away on holiday. My DH wants to go to Disneyland Paris. Not sure whether to go for it or not. It's really expensive and could well be a nightmare with a very tantrumy toddler! Has anyone else been? xx

Happy Easter everyone. Hope all the little ones had a lovely day with lots of chocolate! R is obsessed with Easter eggs although he mostly likes unwrapping them rather than eating them! Cheenab, I hope T had a great first birthday. Time really has flown! He is gorgeous and so like F! I love seeing all your photos. Heather, sounds like there's a good plan in place for H. Glad to hear you have all settled in well in England. How is the job going? As for me, I'm doing ok. We are trying to get a hol...

Thanks everyone. I don't know what I'd do without this forum and you ladies to talk to. Fertility issues really do make you feel very isolated as none of my family or friends even know about our struggles. Cheenab, I'm so glad there are people like you on here who have had natural miracles as it does give me a teeny tiny bit of hope. I just don't want to go through the rest of my life hoping that the next month will be the one though. It's so difficult to make the decision to finally draw a line...

Thank you net for your very kind words. I will bounce back, as you say it's all just a bit raw at the minute. My horrible sister in law is due her 3rd child in the next couple of weeks and she is so smug and annoying. Wish I could hibernate for a while lol! I'd thought about speaking to the health visitor about the sleeping but she's never overly helpful so just kinda ploughing on for now. I've ended up bringing him into bed with me at around 3am for the past few nights just so that we can get s...

Private FET in Belfast

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Feeling a bit down about it all tonight. Little orchid, do you know do we get a review appointment as part of the private fet or do we have to pay extra if we want one? The form I have to send back asks if I want a review and I wouldn't mind having a chat with the consultant to see if they think it would be worth our while having any further treatment. If I have to pay for it though I'd probably consider going elsewhere. JMcK, hope you are keeping well xx

Thanks everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day. I was a little bit extra spoilt by my wee man today and had a nice quiet day in with him. You are so right Pip, we are all very blessed and I never forget it. To be honest though I'm feeling a bit down today. I just don't feel ready to give up hope of having another baby yet but I don't know what to do. We really can't afford a fresh cycle and even if we could I feel that the odds would be low as I'm not getting any younger and I just do...

Thanks girls. Will definitely be having a wee glass or 2 of wine tonight! Unfortunately no option for us to try again. This was our last wee frostie and we couldn't afford another fresh cycle. Even if we could I doubt we'd have any success due to my age x

Thanks girls but there wasn't even a hint of a line and I used a FRER so think it's definitely over.

Tested this morning 2 days early and it's definitely a BFN for me. Very disappointed but know I'm already so lucky to have my little boy. I just wanted this to work as much for him as for me.

I tested this morning 2 days early and it's a BFN as expected. Even though I knew in my heart it hadn't worked I'm still really disappointed. I'm so thankful for what I already have but I so wanted R to have a little brother or sister
