Hey ladies. Things have been a bit hectic here. I've started my driving lessons again, got a part-time job, and have been organising a huge naming ceremony for Z this Saturday. Miss you ladies. I keep leaving it so long. I can't believe Z will be 1 in 2 months :O I have been planning to try for baby no 2 soon. It was going to be this spring but finances and everything else got in the way. Hopefully I will be joining you lovely ladies back on the ttc train soon.

fairytales87 So glad things are starting to look up for you, health wise. Like you said, it's just a case of one day at a time. We're good. The new job is taking a bit of getting used tom especially constantly relying on my mum for babysitting but we're getting there. Hope you can start your next cycle soon x

Caite So cool to have you back! Really hope you can get the ball rolling this year.

Oxygen7880 Ethan is absolutely gorgeous!!! Well done on your amazing birth experience x

K.N I haven't been very vocal on your blog but just know that I am watching and waiting with baited breath. Just praying with every fibre of my being for yo. And yeah sure ill ship stuff over for you. No problem, just let me know. Inbox me. Fingers crossed for transfer!

MombyChoice Welcome welcome welcome!!!! Aww your incredibly sweet comment made me shed a tear. Thank you for taking the time to read through all of our ups and downs. You say you're a newbie but you have definitely covered more basis than I did back when i was doing at home ai. I wish you all the luck in the world. I get a very good vibe from you I hope to be reading your birth story someday soon. Its good that you are positive. You have to be. Sure many of us have struggled (and continue to struggle) to conceive, but it can just need that one try. I hope this is yours. xx

darkriver Thinking of you. I'm so happy to hear that you got help and are being treated. Too many women suffer in silence. I dealt with intense postnatal anxiety and depression and only begun to get better once i opened up about it all. So keep talking

Rosie2017 Welcome to the group. It is full of loads of lovely women who are at all stages of ttc, waiting etc. Hope you find all the help/answers you're looking for x

Rags I'm so sorry to hear about your mum. My thoughts and prays are with you. Can't believe wee man is 7 already! Time really does fly. It sounds like you have a very loving, emotionally mature, kind little boy. So glad you have all of that support and such an amazing son. x

Rags - I was amazed at how much blood they want. I'd guess the vials about 2ml (I've not taken it out the packet but it's about half the size of what we normally take bloods in), so about 30 drops I guess! - I'm going to be there for ever! I'll definitely have to make sure I'm in when they deliver - no way would I want it going to the neighbour's house! I'm trying not to get too bogged down with wading through profiles - I want an anonymous donation, so all there is is the basic details to go from, nothing much to choose from.

KN - capillary sampling is just a slightly less invasive way of taking blood, the sample you normally have taken is venous, this is a pin prick basically to your finger (it's like what diabetics do). It gets sent to some lab and they'll check to see if I've ovulated.

Fairytales - from what I read (somewhere, can't remember where now) when shipping from abroad, they can't ship anonymously to clinics because of the HFEA regulations on anonymity but can ship to private addresses. Because it's coming from abroad though, I think the regulations might be different than sperm from within the UK. I'm sorry about your decision

Just popping in quickly- havent read the previous couple posts since i last logged in. It's mothers day here in NZ and so wanted to come wish you ALL a big happy mothers day and send love and hugs to the whole group .

I got a bit of a mothers day shock this morning - am 5 days past transfer,, and decided what the heck ill take a hpt - not expecting anything!! BUT it was another bfp!! I still have a whole week till my beta, the line was faint - but definitely there. Feel a bit like its all a trick... I did a post on my blog with a pic,, but slowly as the day has gone on - now ive started "waiting" for bleeding or cramps or some sign it wont stick. Feels too good to be true. Damn infertility and miscarriages robbing me from what SHOULD be a crazy exciting test result!
