As of tomorrow we will be in cycle #8 as AF arrived today. I'm so sorry ladies but I just gotta rant and get this out! My husband has 2 children from a previous marriage. His ex has since gone on to re-marry and has had another 2 children. We've had a tough 10 years together regarding the ex. In the years of 2004, 2008 and 2011 we've been involved in serious neglect cases as the ex just cannot manage to look after the children. Last month she split from her current hubby and now has 4 children to look after on her own. We all know that within 6 months we'll be having meetings left, right and centre again because: 1. the kids are not being taken to school on time 2. they're always tired and hungry 3. they're in dirty, smelly clothes etc etc I could go on and on and on. In the words of social services "we can't take the children away from her as things ARE NOT BAD ENOUGH"!!!!!!!! There are all these people out there who are desperate to fall pregnant, me included. All I have to hear about pretty much every day of my life is how shit a mother she is to her FOUR children. Life really sucks at the mo!
