  1. You and I share a very similar timeline. I conceived naturally in 2011, birthed my son in January 2012, conceived naturally in March 2014 but miscarried at 6/7 weeks. We haven’t started any IVF cycles yet, our first will be starting in a few weeks. I’ve been doing acupuncture, naturopaths, fertility testing, everything in hopes that we would achieve another natural pregnancy. I wish you well in your journey. Sometimes people say I should be thankful I have one, and I do completely agree, but at the same time, it makes it just as hard because we know what we are missing out on. We are completely justified to be devastated by secondary infertility. Infertility in general is so brutal. Good luck!


    1. I will be following your journey and wishing you the very best of luck also.
      People say the same to me but it doesn’t make it hurt any less and I agree that knowing what I’m missing out on is hell. My daughter is so amazing and the reason I’m trying so damn hard for this to work. I’m not ready to accept the idea of not having another yet, not at all so until then I’m going to perservere through this shit storm that is IVF and not take no for an answer.
      Keep the faith! Xx
