    Anyway I am suppose to be studying, learning to be a theatre nurse!!!! The amount of ops I am having lately I don't think I need to take the exam. Should stop procrastinating and hop to it..

    Take care gals





    love and hugs

    Hello everyone. Hope you are all doing well.

    Leis- Thanks you for sharing your friend Trish's story with us. I am so excitied for her. It is just wonderful. I also think it is great that the herbs are making you feel great.
    I went to a nathurpath for 2 years. I did not find that the herbs made me feel any better. I was also put on a vitamin called tresos B. And only found out after leaving the nathurpath that I am not allowed to take any vitamins with Iron as my body stores it! But listening to you talk about going to the nathurpath made get back onto track with the diet guidelines she gave me, and that does make me feel better!

    Skye- I hope you are enjoying your holidays with your feet up. I have everything crossed for your 2WW!!!!

    Guess I wont be joining you guys after all. I got a faint BFP yesterday which was such a shock. Seems we've become fertile myrtles all of a sudden. So I wish everyone the best and will check in from time to time (unless we have a repeat m/c which I hope not!)
    [-o< Im praying for your BFPs!!!!

    Anna- thats fantastic. How exciting. Wishing you all the best.

    Leis- I have everything crossed for your mircle. Is Hubby home for the weekend? Relax and good luck!

    Sarams- the rollercoaster ride is hard I know. I feel like I am living it daily. Going from excited that this cycle could be the one, to just worring that it wont work like the last 4. You know what my husband did? He read in the sunday paper a few weeks ago that in Australia we have 7000 babies born though IVF a year. So he highlighted that paragraph and put in on my fridge. So when I do feel a bit down I can remember that it does work. We just have to have faith. Please keep you chin up and remember we are all here for you.

    Daisy,

    I absolutely know how you feel my sweet.

    I remember thinking this IVF thing was a bunch of cr*p, that the women falling pg must have been DTD and concieved naturally, but thought it was IVF. Well, I promise you, there had been no DTD in my house, so it was definitely the IVF.

    I had 7 complete failures at IVF, not one teensy bit of HCG ever, before success. Every new cycle brings hope with it. You think you're not keeping strong, I think anyone continuing IVF in the face of unsuccessful cycles is very strong.

    love

    Sushee,

    Thank you so much for your lovely and most needed wise words.

    I feel so grateful for this great forum. I have felt so alone on my TTC journey. So many people really do not know what to say. I can respect that. It is the negitive comments that I get so cranky with. My sister in law said to me the other day " when are you going to give up?"
    All you girl's have given me the strengh to be able to head those comments off. I just replied "why do I need to? I am allowed to do what I want and what I need to fullfill my dreams. It is my life, my body, my money. " I did only get negitive comments back, and even though they did bring me down alittle, I do feel stronger than my last IVF cycle. And all you girls do remind me that I am strong enough to keep going.

    You HAVE made me feel so much better today. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Hi Vicki
    You have the strength to do it. I remember seeing an ivf specialist interviewed when I first started out. His words ring in my ears "You really have to marvel at the resilience of an infertile couple". It's so true.
    Truth is, 'the heart wants what the heart wants' and it's as simple and as hard as that. Maybe you could make that your standard reply!!
    Looks like being a nice weekend here on the CC so you can get out in the fresh air and enjoy it.

    Hello lovely ladies!

    I just have a quick question...
    Do you POAS before your b/t with IVF? I have my b/t this Friday 27th which will be 2 weeks after collection. Am I a lunatic to POAS before?
    I don't know what would be worse

    a. A BFN
    OR
    b. The 'Oh we are really sorry but....' phone call Friday afternoon.

    What do you usually do??

    TIA

    :-k that is a hard Q

    My clinic puts your Beta BT almost 3 weeks after OPU - so I did because I had to know if even tiniest bit pregnant - and I had a POAS about to expire. So i though may as well .I didn't expect a BFP though !

    Twice before I never even got to BT - and once I POAS - ever hopeful and BFN was heartbreaking !

    The thing is some ladies now pregnant got BFN on POAS and hours later got BFP on beta BT - Melbo was one. It can screw your head and another lady I know got a early BFP on POAS and was all excited understandably and devastated when BT was BFN .

    Your need to have inner strength to cope with whatever the peestick tells you and despite the result of POAS - only the BT is for sure .You need a very strong will not to do it mind you.

    Thank you Trish for your reply.
    It is a hard one & I just know the wait from the b/t until the phone rings is going to be agony.
    Goodness a 3 week BETA would be torture! I thought 2 weeks was bad
    :shock:
    Thanks again Trish

    Skye, I say hold out. I must admit though it's never been hard to do because I had Pregnyl support on most of my TWWs so never did POAS. Like Trish said, it depends on how much you ride on the POAS outcome. I think most think that if it's a BFN there is still hope, it may not be right, but can help to gear up for a BFN BT. Hmm, that's a round a bout answer isn't it.

    Daisy, I think the newspaper article on the fridge is a good idea, a point of hope would be helpful.

    My news is that I'm back in the game again! CD1 for me, so the BCP did the trick for me. I start my HRT FET today taking 3mg Progynova 3 times a day. BT on CD10. Wow, feels like ages, well it was October my last cycle, I just need a better outcome.

    Wishing good things for you lovely ladies. Take care

    Tam- Fingers crossed for you for this cycle!!! I have had one FET and forget the time time. How long before ET?
    The newspaper artical on the fridge has helped. Not only as it does remind me that IVF does work, but it also reminds me that DH is trying his best to support me.

    Skye- To do or not to do- is such a hard question. I personally had to do it the first 2 times. Even though I knew that BT was the only true resut I wanted to be prepared! But my third cycle was a FET and a BT is the only way to find out then. So then for time no. 4 I decided that I will wait. I found that easier then getting a result and still waiting until BT to see if it is right. I really think you will have to just go with how you feel at the time.

    Chele- How are you? have you managed to talk to you doctor yet about how many to transfer? How long before ET?

    SuziQ- Thanks. The heart does want what the heart wants. I am going to store that for future use!

    I hope everyone is having a wonderful sunny weekend!!!

    Yay! Tam, what excellent news! So glad you're back on the rollercoaster, it has been ages since you last had a cycle!

    skye, my name is sushee and I am a POASer.

    I have never gone a cycle without POASing, mainly because I felt the need to be prepared for any bad news the BT would bring. If it was -ve, I felt I could steel myself.

    Then my last cycle, I POASed 2 days prior to my BT. I was 11dpo and it was very definitely a -ve. I kept the blasted thing for an hour, and it didn't change.

    But two days later, my BT showed a HCG of 73! So the HPT was wrong.

    I don't care what the manufacturers say. Unless you're carrying twins (and therefore producing heaps of HCG) you're more likely to get a -ve even if pg than a +ve if you test prior to AF.

    Not that I'm saying not to do it, just be realistic that HPTs seem to not be definitive anyway!

    love
