    Hi Girls,
    I don't want to moan and I feel silly posting this, but I just feel really down and depressed
    I have suffered from depression and anxiety in the past and been on medication, at the moment I'm not on meds, and I have felt the depression creeping up on me, for the past few months its been getting worse, every morning I wake up with the same feeling, and I don't know how to snap myself out of it
    I'm on a healthy eating plan and I am trying to stay positive about TTC but it just seems its getting harder to stay positive

    sorry for the moan, just had to get it out! lol

    Hi Clover

    I feel the same. I started bleeding yesterday on cd22 - I mean, really?! Why does pcos do this to us, can't they find a cure?!

    We do everything possible and still it doesn't happen and nothing changes. I had to have a few weeks off work earlier this year because it got to me that much. You are definitely not alone. Xxx

    What else can we do though? I can only think of trying soy (more supplements, much to my husband's disgust lol). It seems to work for a lot of people.

    That said, right now surrogacy and adoption are very appealing for me. Xx

    Sorry to hear you're feeling down. This TTC lark can be so frustrating and I can see how it would be frankly upsetting after months and months of trying. I really hope you get some good news soon. Xx

    Awwww hun sorry your feeling this way.

    Can't really give any advice as I'm feeling down as well.
    I hope you start feeling better soon though. It sounds like your looking after yourself which can only help.

    Big hugs :hugs: xxx

    Thanks lovely
    I think I will have some Clover time, I rarely get time to myself as I work full time and the kids keep my busy (which I love of course) but I don't get time to chill out and relax so perhaps when they are in bed I will put a good film on cracking open a bottle of wine and chocolates and have some time out

    Xxxxxxx

    Awww, what a lovely thing to say! Thank you :)

    We have our FET info session on Feb 22nd so should be able to do it the cycle after. I found out we get 2 FETs on the NHS before November which is great! Really hoping something comes of them.

    I know I ovulated in October as I felt it and my scan in November was clear. I'm hoping this is just my cycles being messed up still from the IVF. Xx

    Depression sucks. I'm suffering with depression at the moment too and when you are depressed you can't ever imagine it ending. We have to keep reminding ourselves that it does, easier said than done I know xxx

    Hi Clover. Sorry to hear you are feeling so down. Your post really put things into perspective for me. A month feels like a year when you are TTC :( I get more mental and obsessed every month that goes by. But I do have a friend who took three years TTC, they tried all sorts and eventually it happened naturally. So weird how our bodies work hey. It's normal to feel down in these circumstances, but hopefully talking about it with DH and all these lovely ladies on here will bring a little comfort. Hope you get your bfp soon x

    Hey Hun sending some hugs :hugs: I suffer with anxiety - tried meds they didn't work. Read an amazing book which basically trained me to live alongside it rather than get rid of it. I know those days well when you wake up and you just can't shift that feeling. You feel guilty because you love everything that is in your life! Just know your not alone, going for a walk on my own makes me feel better, if I can get myself to go! Ha xx
