    Just back home from Ballarat and catching up on posts. Tam, just wanted to say what awful news - but you sound like an amazing person and I wish you the best of luck with your next attempt - hopefully it will be THE ONE! Take good care.

    Sushee, I U, thank you so very very much. Like I said to my friend yesterday, I can get through this because I've got a lovely bunch of 'mates' on here to help me out with their understanding & experiences.

    Janee & Nola, I guess I was just thinking if there was anything else I could do to help my P4 problems. I've never been to a naturopath before so don't really know what it entails/means.

    I went to the clinic today to get my Anti-D injection. Whilst there I broke down because I passed a large clot (sorry TMI). Anyway, that started a good conversation with the nurse about my cycles/problems. It seems I don't absorb P4 very well. Also a worry about my m/c (5 in total).
    It is thought I can cover the P4 problem with a fresh cycle (heaps of follies to produce the P4 after EPU) and also suggested we do PGD to test the embryos.
    So DH & I are meeting with the PGD specialists Tuesday week to get the details about that. We figure that the upfront extra cost $2,000+ compensates for the cost of the unsuccessful cycles later down the track. Also too, it'll save the emotional heartache of unsuccessful cycles.

    Hope everyone has a good weekend, we have a long weekend here, is that the same for everyone else?
    Bee & Heather, hope your cycles are going well.
    Marg, how long is it til your op, sorry I forgot. Did you get an u/s at your visit to check your fibroids.

    Take care

    Tam - I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your forward thinking and willingness to jump back on the rollercoaster is admirable. All the very best with your next cycle. (Just a word about PGD though, it can be very tough to go through a fresh cycle and have nothing to transfer, and the phonecalls advising of the numbers dwindling can be hard. But you are a tuff cookie and will get thru it). Thinking of you possum.

    :flower: Tam, the puddling up with the nurse is probably the best thing. Maybe the absorption issue is something a naturopath can help with. I used to go to a fantastic one - but a bit too far for you to travel :-k No long weekend here. Although, I had one as I had an RDO yesterday!!
    Blue - are you hiding?

    Hi to all

    Hi Tam'

    I hope the PGD testing sorts out your problems and can deliver you a next time without the heartache .... Think of it as a fresh start... Fresh cycle, PGD, :luck: for a succesful outcome next time around. In the meantime, take it easy and relax.. i would recommend getting to the naturapath... my endo pain decreased by 85% from taking herbs....

    All the best sweet heart

    :wave: to everyone else...

    Hi all you lovely ladies!!!

    Jannee- I can just taste the cheescake now. Yummy!!!!

    Shazey- congratulations on your upcoming move. Hervey Bay was surveyed to be the happiest place in Oz to live!!

    Tam- I actully like seeing children in the clinic. As I figue that everyone there is for the same reason, seeing kids actully gives me hope that one day I might be a mother. one day it could just work. IYKWIM. I know reason says that the kids might not be IVF at all, but I like to think the ones I see are. I am sorry you had to have the anti D. But I am so glad you mentioned it. As I had to have it for my first to MC. And I was so tired when I saw the doctor that I totally forgot to ask! Luckily I did not have to have one. Only because I have to go the the local hosptal and last time I sat waiting for 3 hours. when AF is painful and heavy all you want to do is be at home in bed!!

    SuziQ- it is exciting seeing your ticker counting down.

    Leis- I hope you are healing nicely!!!

    And everyone else I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the weeked!!! many hugs to you all

    Hi everyone,

    Sue – Hi! Loving that ticker – what is Turkish for “take me with you”!! heheee.

    Tam – You’re amazing petal. I hope your appointment goes well with the PGD specialists. Whoah, I didn’t realize it was that expensive. But you’re right – its money well spent if you take into account that it might save you cycles later. Plus the peace of mind is well worth it. Take care pet. You’re often in my thoughts.

    Shazey – good luck with your move – sounds like a fantastic fresh start.

    Marg – how did the op go?

    Leis – hope you’re recovering well. Is the catheter out yet?

    Vicki, Sheree, Bec Trish, Chele - Hi – hope you’re doing well.

    Nola – were you given the okay to start jabbing?

    Mel, I’m exactly the same – My brain decides to go for a walk when I’m at the clinic. My Dr thinks I’m a control freak when I take in a list of questions but it’s the only way I remember what I wanted to ask. Plus my Dr has a fairly heavy accent and is hard to understand sometimes. Rest assured Mel, you’re not the only one!!
    It seems to be an unwritten rule to not say anything to anyone while waiting at the clinic. My Dr’s rooms are near to what I think is an ultrasound clinic (never investigated properly) so it can be confronting at times seeing bellies everywhere. I must admit I got upset at seeing a lady breastfeeding in front of DH & I whilst waiting to go see the specialist about why our last attempt failed. I have yet to develop my thick skin (need thin skin for jabbing…).
    Janee – am pretty sure I was “made” by someone at my work while at the clinic once, but nothing was ever said. So there are rumours going around behind my back or she’s more discrete than what I give her credit for.

    Sushee – I have a follie that they’re happy to watch grow for a few more days. And Dr seems happy with the lining so far. Another scan next week. I didn’t make a list of questions for this appointment so forgot all the questions I was going to ask like assisted hatching, P4 support. Will have them ready to roll by next scan!! Hope you’re doing well and resting up!

    Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend
    Love,
    H

    Hi Blue

    Nope that cathetor is still in... I have a cystogram next Tuesday at my work radiology, (no fee \/ ) where they put some dye into the cathetor to see if the bladder wall is looking ok thickness wise, where they cut into it and stitched it up...

    I will let you all in on a little funny that happened with the cathetor.. well maybe i am a bit to weird and warped, but i think it is funny so did DH and my mum....

    We were at Newcatle airport in the carpark dropping mum back for her flight up to the Goldie, when i suddenly realised that my leg bag was getting kinda fat, so i thought 'mmm better empty that' that i just did on DH's wheel of his car, just like a dog!!!! My mum was in hysterics, DH just shook his head and said 'That's why i married you, for your fantastic sense of humour'....I was laughing so loudly people were looking but i had no chance of peeing myself from laughter due to the cathetor...

    Also Blue and Mel, I used to tend to loose my brain a bit when going for appointments, I remember one time (at band camp) DH and I were in a cafe having a cuppa before appointment, and i left my mobile phone behind...then another time i left temp charts behind and got to the appointment without them, then i also misplaced my sunglasses, left them on the Dr's desk... Now though I seem to have it together a bit more, and just roll with the punches... A more relaxed approach, I don't know how I came about that approach but it just appeared within me and has stayed....

    :smt039 to everyone else and i hope you are all travelling well...

    Love and hugs

    Leis xxx

    Leis, you are great. Don't think I could've thought of that one myself. Big lol. I often say we have to laugh, or we'd cry. Good on ya for getting the freebie, work's gotta be good for something!

    Heather, glad the cycle is getting there. I often think I should do lists but don't.

    Hope everyone is enjoying your day, another hottie for us. Sue, what's the weather is Greece, have you starting watching?

    Take care

    You're right about it being a hot one today in Perth Tam......we're all hiding out inside. I can't stand it when it's this hot

    You made me laugh Leis! I think a sense of humour is the only thing that keeps me going some days.

    Blue Sky, I'm sure I'll see someone familiar at the clinic one of these days..unless of couse, I have a reason to stop going! Let's hope and pray.

    Daisy, glad you liked the cheesecake. I have to say, I've been cooking up culinary delights for weeks now. I think the stress comes out by coiking for me. I just hope it doesn't all end up on my hips. The only rounded thing I want is a tummy!

    To everyone else, take care. Yay for a Public holiday for us here tomorrow.....yippee

    Hi Girls, Well the Bt went well Friday and Yes i commenced the Injections last night, mind you i was as nervous as the very first time i commenced them the one two three, then the big hesitation. well I finally managed to get the jab in and all over. Now the joy of having to do it again all over this evening. I suppose looking at the end result It will be well worth all the jabbing. I have been booked in for my BT and U/s next Monday the 13th of march so hopefully all will be going smoothly and I will be able to enjoy the long weekend.

    I so hope that you are all going well and you are all enjoying your weekends. Will chat with you all again tomorrow.

    Hey Keen, lovely to see you back here. Wishing you loads of luck!
    Good to see you rolling along Blue - just keep on rolling right outta here!
    Tam, you don't muck around girl - go for it.
    Hi to everyone and hope you're all doing well.

    I'm not sure Tam what the weather is like in Greece atm, but it should be around 28 degs when I'm there. The average for Dubai while I'm there is 41... Blue, I haven't learned 'can I come with you' in Turkish yet. Still at single words - not up to sentences yet.
    toilet - too-wah-let
    goodbye - ahl-lah-hah ihs-mahr-lah-dihk (best be careful trying to say that one too fast...)
