Thanks! It feels good to let off the steam!
I can totally relate to your blog elephant in the room. I am 28 and have been trying for 2 1/2 yrs now to conceive. Everyone around me knows how much I love children and so they keeping asking when I will have kids. Ofcourse I would have had kids by now if I could have. I have actually stopped playing with children and keep my distance now so that people do not ask me any questions of when I will have kids.

When I take days off for clinic appts people at work just assume that I am pregnant. The worst is when people just say things like how is baby doing? ummm.. What baby? And the starring at the stomach to see if by any chance I am pregnant (please stop you will burn a hole through my belly). I think people need to be a little more considerate of others feeling. It used to upset me in the beginning bu now I think I am just accustomed to it. I listen from one ear and let it out the other.

I will be starting my first round of IVF soon and will be taking 2 weeks off as well. I already know everyone at work is going to be asking questions when I return and I am mentally preparing myself to full well let people know that I am happy to know they are concerned about me but cannot discuss my illness with them. I am really hope I am strong enough to say that. it is really no ones business.

Wish you luck with IVF#2.. Lots of Baby Dust and Hope everything turns out well.
Your blog entry completely touched my heart and says everything about what's going on in my life. I'm 27 and have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years and have been through 2 IVFs with no viable pregnancy. My last cycle, I was told that my egg quality is very poor and I may not be able to conceive with my own eggs. Who would have thought we'd be going through this at our age?
I also had similar dreams of building a family, and also imagined myself with 3 kids. There's not a day that goes by without pain knowing that our journey to parenthood will not be the same as others and it would be full of trials and tribulation. I wish you luck and I wish for all of us the courage and faith to be at peace with what fate will bring us! Best wishes from the bottom of my heart to you!
