Visited Tesco this morning and there was a junior school choir singing Christmas carols. I ventured into the carrots - and burst into tears.

I'm absolutely shocked at my reaction, because we now have our beautiful DC (after nearly 10 long and agonising years of IVF). I thought I was over these feelings of longing, but the sound of the choir brought everything back, remembering how desperate I felt at times.

So I simply wanted to wish everyone that is going through IF issues a very Happy Christmas, and the hope that the new year brings you all the baby you want.

Thank you santa that is very sweet of you! Wishing you a very happy christmas too. I think once you have been through IVF it never leaves you. Just finished my first cycle of IVF and was a negative for me this time, hoping next year will bring us better luck xxx

Hi santasausages and Hope2409,

Just lazing around reading the infertility forum after a year of hell and reflecting upon it all... prepping myself for a better year in 2017. I know how you must've been feeling, and a massive cyber hug to you both.. I don't think the negative memories of fertility treatments ever go away and I think women and their partners who are facing/have faced the ordeal of IVF are incredibly strong, mentally and physically.

Hope you have a lovely Christmas and all the best for 2017! fsmile flowers

Thank you sausage flowers

I also cry at children's choirs sad and I became so convinced/afraid that newly-married SIL was going to announce a pregnancy tomorrow I had to get DH to interrogate BIL for me! They don't even want kids. This shit makes you crazy fhmm
