    Hello Girls x I wish you all success in your TTC journeys and I hope your forever babies are not waiting too long to meet you x x

    I need a bit of advice and maybe some ideas?

    My very good friend has started getting tests as to why she's not getting pregnant and so far they identified that she is ovulating and her husband is fine. She's had an internal investigation and that's OK. But she's having an internal scan soon and then some other tests not sure what. I think they are testing for endo and pcos.

    So we have been through this journey together and she's been my rock. In over a year though she hadn't had a bfp but she has one child already who is about 6 years old. Now when I reach 13 weeks and have my scan (look at my positivity there its not easy! Lol) I know she will be happy for me she's been there for all my miscarriages and was the first person i told when i found out i was pregnant. However if I were her I'd also be a little bit sad as I'm sure you all understand!

    I really wanted to get her a present a sort of ttc hamper if you will. I saved my leftover frer and cb digi's which I wanted to give her as a good luck thing a bit like the yellow bootie exchange. I was wondering if there was anything else I could get her? We all know ttc is an expensive and hard journey. I have got lots of left over folic acid (3× sealed bottles) as I now get mine on a free prescription.. but she hasn't been on a place like this and I wondered what you think is most useful? I don't mind going out and buying things I just want a nice thoughtful gift that I can get her and if it could lead to bfp for her I'd love to be able to help.

    If you want to add something a bit less useful but kind of funny I remember seeing stuffed plush uterus and ovary toys. It could add a lighter note but it depends if it's something that would amuse her or not.

    Maybe a pretty box of tissues and a bar of chocolate 'for the BFN months'.

    I got a pretty toiletry bag from premark that I used to keep my test stash in. It opened out and had clear pockets. Better than my cardboard box and ziplock bags that I used before and quite handy for sneaking in and out of the bathroom with when not wanting to admit you are doing your 5th test of the day :).

    Maybe you could put a little tag on each thing with a message/ explanation why you chose it for her.

    I think a lovely little candle and maybe some nice bubble bath? TYC is stressful and she needs to relax as much as possible

    Im sure she will love it. It is a nice way of showing you haven't forgotten about whats going on in her life even though you are pregnant.

    Aw this is the sweetest gift! She will really appreciate it I bet. Funny as I said to OH the other day if any of my friends struggle with ttc or losses I'm going to do something like that as when you're pregnant everyone fusses buying baby lovely things but when you're struggling it seems like no one else notices. Bet this will be her fave gift xxx

    Aww thank you. I just want her to join me on this journey too. Our sons similar ages it would be nice to have a bump buddy lol. One of my friends said something very offhand about how her past decision's had left her in this position and that's why I was pregnant but she wasn't and I wanted to slap her. But it wasn't my battle but I felt so bad afterwards x it's true everyone fusses over the baby/pregnant person whilst the one ttc is sometimes most in need of a hug and a pick me up. As people in here and me and you know well!
