    Hi everyone

    SUE: OMG!!! I dont have to ask how you feeling lovey.. 3 out of 3 is just fantastic. WTG!! I can feel your excitement and so you should be so bl**dy proud of yourself of all the hard work. I pray so hard you get the one thing you have been waiting a long time for. Love BEE post - I agree your eggs are superstars.

    TRISH: Hi lovey.. How are you? when the time is right and you feel comfortable, you will talk to family, friends etc about it. My MIL came today, and almost told her FET will be 26/11 but dont feel like talking to anyone about it, until I get a BFP and showing.. I seen the RPA special and I had a tear jerker also.. I also had dummy spit and teary this morning, I told DH, I am thinking seriously about giving up on IVF after these 2 eggs.. If this litter (dogs) doesnt sell shortly, we will have to. DH replies.. you will have a baby in your belly soon (as he pats it).. I thought that was cute.. almost enough to say to myself "dont give up"..

    Hi Girls,
    Chris - I think it depends on which clinic you're with? I had a scan with my HRT FET. I think it was to check the thickness of the lining. Which clinic are you with?

    Shazey - (and Chris) I agree with Trish - have a word to your clinic about the payments. I'm sure they will understand!

    Trish - I'm not an overly religious person - only when it suits me... 8-[ Maybe it's his/her way of showing you you're not alone and that there are people around you that are there to support you. Maybe you're meant to find strength through each other? Hmm very deep and meaningful of me for a Friday night!! :-s

    Sushee - Thanks for asking. I have decided to wait until after exams - unless AF decides otherwise. Its only another couple of weeks away now. Plus trying to see if my ticker will have to drop down to the next line?? Has anyone ever clocked a ticker? Think I might have to test it!! LOL

    Magic & Tam - Hope you're both doing okay. Thinking of you.

    Hi Mel, Bee & Humphrey! :smt039

    Take care girls and have a lovely weekend!
    Especially you Ms 3 from 3!!

    Thanks H (blue sky)

    I am with SIVF Newcastle, in my programme sheet they have sent me doesnt say anything about scans (which i had with stim cycle) if i have to have any, only about when to take what meds and when and when to have BTs.

    Blue sky (I love your name makes me happy and want to sing )
    I am starting to think that ...signs all about me - you girls number 1 on list

    tonight a guy (DS former cub scout leader) came up to me (was in car with DH dropping DS off) and said he read my story in paper some really nice comments about it - I was touched - especially coming from a gent (leman) Most people (especially men) wouldn't bother reading or even commenting :-s It reallysurprised me a man commenting about the story on 'loss' and the second man at that. Sensitive mid 40's guys obviously with wives who trained 'em right...

    (BTW This guy's wife in training to be a female 'minister' of some sort -so yes another sign to me)

    Beats me why but my own brother/SIL and mother read the article and said 'nothing' at all ... I love them dearly and they have been supportive but I doubt I will tell them till I get a BFP

    I have to say the support here is out of this world and heaven sent ...

    without you girls I couldn't get by ... the big guy in the sky I know is there for me too but it's different

    Hey Heather - btw you are made of strong stuff I would be crazy by now or broke from HPT - bring it on when your ready and exams are over

    Chris - your DH sounds such a sweety and will [-o< your puppies sell like hot cakes - I guess we all decide how we feel at the time - to tell or not to tell

    They did a scan my first time to check lining on natural FET .

    No joke Trish, I was thinking the same thing about Blue Sky name... I think of the blue sky with sun shining and birds singing..

    I was going to put that in my last post to her..

    Trish - The first lot sold like hotcakes, but for some reason these ones havent.. We maybe considering giving them a start to see how they run, then advertise.

    I will see how I feel re continuing IVF next year.. (knowing me, i prob will-DH may see to that).

    I am hoping they do scan to make sure no problem with lining.

    Blue sky it is a lovely name

    Chris - great minds think alike :-k

    yes - I am singing it now and want to hear the whole sung (will google it)

    Now you make me laugh =D> my head off P my ants

    but I am so sorry I had to meet this way but glad we did IYKWIM

    hey if you are on HRT you should be fine - it will create a comfy little home for your bubbas and they will want to burrow in tight

    When I was little, I used to believe
    in the concept of one best friend,
    and then I started to become a woman.
    And then I found out that if you allow your heart
    to open up, God would show you the best in many friends.

    One friend is needed when you're
    going through things with your man.

    Another friend is needed when you're
    going through things with your mom.

    Another when you want to shop,
    share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.

    One friend will say let's pray together, another
    let's cry together, another let's fight together,
    another let's walk away together.

    One friend will meet your spiritual
    need, another your shoe fetish, another
    your love for movies, another will be with
    you in your season of confusion, another will be
    your clarifier, another the wind beneath your wings.

    But whatever their assignment in your life,
    on whatever the occasion, on whatever the day,
    or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym
    shoes on and hair pulled back, or to hold you back from
    making a complete fool of yourself ... those are your best friends.

    It may all be wrapped up in one woman,
    but for many it's wrapped up in several...
    one from 7th grade, one from high school, several
    from the college years, a couple from old jobs,
    several from church, on some days your mother,
    on some days your neighbor, on others your sisters,
    and on some days your daughters or some days ones you know only on the internet

    So whether they've been there 20 minutes or 20 years,
    Pass this on to the women that have been placed in your life
    to make a difference.
    Someone I met a week ago on the internet sent this to me and I want to share this with my wonderful friends here

    Trish, that is beautiful. And, so, so true.
    I was only telling someone the other day that sometimes, I feel I am closer to my on-line friends I've met in here than a lot of my RL friends.
    I had goosebumps reading this.

    Hi girls just thought I would check in to say hello
    firstly sue 3 from 3 excellent news, how exciting, I agree with you Sue you do feel closer to your online buddies because we are all going through the same thing and its great to have someone understand what is going on.
    Trish I have spoken to my clinic and they are usually fine to some extent they will still send me a account every week to remind me I owe them money, they do like the account to be paid by the time of OPU. I was originally going to wait until the new year but my specialist wanted me to do it this month as I have met the medicare threshold and apparently it goes back to square one every calender year which means I would end up with less rebate and having to pay my excess again.
    Trish you were saying you became teary after one jab, I am teary just on synarel (how sad is that, very sad according to me LOL).
    Confused egg glad to see another Newcastle (Hunter girl) I hope your dogs sell, Im with Hunter IVF and they check your uterine lining during a HRT FET to make sure its suitable for a transfer.
    Well AF still hasnt arrived so I continue on the down reg, last time AF arrived 7 days after starting synarel this time Im already up to day 10 on synarel so Im not sure whats going on is this normal ?
    Well its a beautiful day today and all I am doing is sleeping and watching TV hoping to get another shift tonight am going out for dinner with some of the mums from my daughters school, having THAI never tried it before but looking forward to trying something new.
    Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and I agree with the girls BLUE SKY definately puts a smile on your face

    Hi girls, thanks for being a fantastic cheer squad. I'd definitely be lost without you all.
    The scientist phoned this morning. 2 eggs have fertilized, the 3rd is still making up it's mind... So, they'll call me back tomorrow.
    She said the transfer will be Monday "if need be". Huh? I know she was just being conservative and careful, but aagggghhhhhhhh.
    Have been a bit crook today - faint, weak and a little short of breath so have been in bed all day.
    Hope you're all doing well.
    Sue :luck: :luck: :luck:

    Oh, yes, question. The scientist said I had a triple lined uterus and that's what they look for - the dr hadn't written the mm down. What does that mean? The internet isn't very helpful with that.

    Hey Bluesky, your sense of humour is a godsend. Hope you're not going insane waiting for AF.
    Magic - how are you?
    *Tam* - anyone heard from Tam?
    Trish, chin up, my first few days this time of meds were a nightmare. My colleagues can vouch for that. I'm telling myself it's a good sign - last time I had no effects like that.
    Hi Sushee (if you manage to pop in).
    Hope you're taking it easy Bee.
    How are you Keen, 1 more sleep? Hope I got that right.
    Hope the money situation sorts itself out Shazey. Thai, I love it, hmm sounds good for tonight.
    Hi to everyone else popping in.
    I'm off to the lounge.
    :luck: :luck: :luck:

    Yippee Susie! (hee hee that rhymes!) Cant beleive how good 3 is! Thats fantastic \/ \/ ....not long and they'll be back where they belong. TRiple lined, hey? Sounds promising!! But cant elaborate any more on that - im sorry!

    Trish - I totally understand your hesitation to tell someone about IVF but also your need to sometimes have someone who knows whats going on and who you can be upfront with - sounds as though there might be a possibility for a little group at your church, even... just a thought :-k

    Shazey - yeah that having to meet the threshold business each and every year makes things hard sometimes, I know. Hope it all gets sorted for you soon. I know with my clinic - no money, no OPU.

    And youre right Trish - what would we do without the sanity saver that is our online buds

    I have decided as of this morning in the shower - that Im not going to be sad anymore - simply not going to allow it [-( well thats the plan.... hope it works out. Starting Puregon tomorrow with Lucrin shots starting on Thursday... love when things are happening again (sad isnt it!)
