    Thanks for the welcome lovlies!!

    I have a scan tomorrow and pick up my stimms. My hubby is going away on Sat for a few days and out of 3 stimm cycles he has always done them for me. Now I will have to do them for myself and I am crapping myself to say the least!! I am going to get him to put a X on my tummy with a permanent marker lol . Any advice would be appriciated!



    Hugs
    Shazz.

    hi Shazld, and welcome back i hope your journey will be a sucess for you this cycle.i read your story and was really sadened to hear of your loses. DH used to do all my injections but when we were out and about one night when he was a little tippsy he put it in and out so fast (thought he might be missing out on some action back in the pub!!) i had medication all over my stomach and it hurt so much that i have now done it myself eack cycle since. Although i do get my mil to do the trigger injection as she is a nurse and im a woose with that one good luck and i know you can do it think of what the outcome will be.xx

    hope that helps you out a little

    I find it less painful when i do injections myself. However I let DH do them because he likes to feel as though he is doing something, I guess. The first time even after having had past cycles is hard to do though.

    Not much news from me. Had a meeting yesterday with MIVF genetisist. They got the stuff they needed back from the Royal Childrens hospital and have started things but said it was very unlikely that we would get our first cycle in this year, (depends how long it takes for them to build our probe, and they also close down over christmas) and it would be more likely to be early next year. So more waiting waiting for us. On the plus side, having been back on the pill now for 3 months and my skin is looking lovely again!!

    There has to be a silver lining in every situation hey??!! What a poop that you may have still a ways to wait. At least they are starting on the probe.

    Nothin happening with me either...on day 4 of my second course of clomid.

    Hi Girls,

    I hope you are all well. Not much happening around here, have started BCP, so I will definately NOT be missing our next FET due to the ***** not turning up on time. Just seems strange TTC but taking the pill!

    Looking forward to our trip to melbourne at the end of the month (to see Antonia Ruhl), just before we start the IVF FET journey yet again.

    Take care all you little lovelies!

    Ann

    Hi guys
    Odette, woohoo for starting the roller coaster (I think!!!) hope all goes well

    Ann, it is always strange when the BCP is mentioned around here, but yeah, it's good for the control factor. So is it about 3 weeks for your cycle to start? Hope the visit goes well

    Hayseed, about ready for the BD fest, have fun & enjoy, lol

    Eje, it's always good to find a positive somewhere in there, good on you.

    Keen, hope things are going ok, I'll check the vent again to get an update since last in.

    Leis, hope you're enjoying your break still & the move went well.

    Vicki, when are your next tests? Crossing my fingers for you.

    My transfer went well on Sunday, my little blast thawed 100% and was starting to hatch. I just hope I've got a good lining for him to cling onto. I'm not sure what it was as I had a scan ages ago (CD 12 I think).
    Had my BT today. P4 was 74. Can anyone help me with numbers as to whether that is any good. Given my P4 problems I'm keeping an eye on this. I'm not sure whether to ask for an extra test at the end of this week to check it again.

    Take care all (including those I know I've missed)

    Hi gals

    Tam that is super news about your little 'un.... i am that its a sticker

    Ann, very bizarre isn't to be on the pill considering your situation, but heres hoping hun, it and the rest of your cycle gets you a good end result.

    Keen - I hope things are going to be looking up for you soon.. i admire your perseverance and courageous spirit...

    Odette - everything crossed for you and congrats on the big start to the huge rollercoaster

    Hayseed - Stay positive hun, your dreams and hopes will come true for you

    Vik - good luck and much baby dust for you

    EJE - how did the results come back? Hoping everything is ok for you!!

    to everyone else that i have missed....

    Me just chilling out.. starting work tomorrow this wil be tough after 6 weeks off.... Our o/s trip has been postponed until end of April. We fly to London on the 30th April.... travel to Southern England, Wales, Ferry over to Ireland full lap of the Emerald Isle, then over to Scotland the Dales back to London and Eurostar to Paris, then off to the Battlefields of The Somme, where my pop was during WW1 (not everyones cup of tea, but a mission i need to accomplish) then home via HKG for 4 nights... It will be great to be back to my grass roots. I love the UK and it is half my homeland....

    Sleepy time for me. Big day tomorrow....

    love and big hugs leis

    Yay Tam!

    P4 at 74 seems okay to me for mid LP, though I'm not 100% sure. I wonder if Sheree or Kar would know?

    Hi Girls,

    I hope you are all well.

    Only 5 weeks to go before the next clinic, $hit time is going so slow.

    Yesterday I was having one of those days, DH kept on asking me what was wrong, I didn't want to talk about it (you all know, the why haven't I gotten Pg yet subject). When I finally started talking about it, he just up and started going on about we are doing everything we can, what more can we try etc.... I know we have and are doing everything we can, it just doesn't solve the problem does it?
    Any way he had to leave early this am for work and he has to stay overnight, so I wont see him until tomorrow evening, I just feel $hitty!

    But then again there is no answer is there? Has anyone got a crystal ball they can look into for me? I am not asking for too much, just 1 little happy, healthy baby!

    Ann

    Hi girls!

    Oh Ann- many hugs to you my friend. Some days I truly wish I had a magic ball too. Mind you I think I would smash it if it gave me the wrong answer! And would not believe it and kept going along the road I am now!!!!

    Tam- Sending you many sticky vibes. Sorry I can help with the p4. I only found out last cycle that it was a problem for me, and my clinic never has told me any of my levels up until the last time. To be honest I really never thought to ask. I think for me I rather have one less thing to worry about. when is the BT? Hope you are not over doing it and work has slowed down a bit. Cant wait to get the BFP news!!!!!!

    Loula- How are you going now? where are you up too? Sorry the start felt a bit mixed up, hope you are fully into the swing of things now! Wishing you much babydust!

    Shazd- how did you go with the injections? I much rather do them myself too as when DH does it it hurts. I have always hated needles, but it is amazing what we do for our dremas isnt it! So were are you up to now? Sending you much babydust too!

    Keen- thinking of you.

    Leis- your trip sounds lovely.

    Eje- the waiting game is a hard one to play isnt it. At least you do have an up side. ( even if it is a small one)

    Odette- hoping this is your lucky cycle.

    Sorry if I have forgotten anyone. Sening you all so much babydust!

    My tests are next week. So I am starting to worry now. I just feel that becuase I am up to CD59 today that my hormones cant be right. So I am expecting a bad result and will have to wait another 3 months. Plus I have put on the 5kilos I have lost due to a knee injury that is still hanting me. grrrr. The plus side is I do feel the break has helped me emotionaly. And I was told the whole insulan/ thyroid hormones are effected depending on my mood. So there is hope.... In the meantime I have been sooo busy. School holidays are always busy for me, and this one is busier as I have had my sisters 2 young ones too.

    Tam, what CD was your P4 at 74? Sorry if you said, I just couldnt find it...let me know and I will check what my levels were like and let you know... and Tam, I am hoping so very much for your success this time... for you... Stick, little one, stick!

    Vic - all the best with the tests sweetheart. Will be thinking of you...

    Ann - :hugs: honey. It is so hard and particularly frustrating, I think, shen you are doing everything you can and still nothing... hang in there darlin, although Im sure those 5 weeks will be a killer! Whilever there is some light at the end of this long dark tunnel...

    Leis - you are going to have a fantastic time! Sounds great - we will all be SO jealous!

    Odette - all the best! Hope this ride is the best one ever

    WELL my period was due on my bday (tues) but decided to do the evil mind trick and arrive late yesterday (thurs). Nice. Although, of course was expected!

    Well we had another appt with specialist and everytime we do we just get further and further away from hope as we receive more and more bad news.. DH is completely despondent and it has really been particularly tough on him. It has been on me also, but as I told him Im hanging onto those final few threads - because next would be a total breakdown, Im sure, and Im just not able to do that right now.... especially when DH really needs my strength at the moment.

    So, I will be leaving on holidays in a few days and will be away. And really I think I should probably stay away from BB for a while, because it is really hard - but at the same time there are those of you in here who are so supportive and thoughtful and i really lean on you guys sometimes!

    Anyway, sorry for the downer. Im so hoping that when I do return from hols an pop back in here to see how you ladies are - that many of you have 'crossed over' into pg land...

    Aw Keen, have a good holiday, my sweet. You take all the time you need. And you're an angel to your DH, but you need to look after yourself too. I think about you everyday and you're always in my prayers. You know we love ya, hunny!

    Ann, sorry you're feeling down. I'm sure there's nothing I can say to make you feel better. I hope Antonia manages to bring you some hope.

    Daisy, it sucks when your body feels like it's all out of whack. I hope your tests come back with great results! hey, in this game, you just never know!

    Tam, hope you're feeling good about this cycle! I know I am!

    awww keen hang in there - destiny still has some beautiful cards to deal you with!!! Your kindered soul aglows in the darkness, but it still is there.
    Tam - definately getting positive vibes for this cycle for you - stick little bubba

    Ann - good luck with antonia - can't wait to see what she has to say.

    as for me D2 of the pill - actually looking forward to being on the pill as hopefully this means no migranes which i get from hormone changes. Feel really positive still although DH freaked when he saw the bill for IVF come in. We are doing ISCS ? apparantlely as as you guys know - it costs extra . On the upside we got a $400 discount as I have a health care card !

    keep positive everyone and catch up soon
    take care
    odette
