    Okay lovely ladies last thread is here

    Morning all of you lovely ladies!!!

    SuziQ-I honestly dont quiet understand. I went straight into shock mode then trying to keep my self from being upset. What I do remember Frank saying was quiet condradictory. He did say High fasting blood sugar can cause misscarriges. It was the first time he has run that test, but I did have it 6 months ago by my Gp and everything was good. Just another Hurdle!!

    Keen- It was the first I heard of a Tunnel test too. It cost us $240 with no rebate at all. The sperm has to be frozen and they are looking for chromizone deformencies. And the only thing they can do to make things even a little better is to have Dh produce a sample daily for at least 2 weeks until egg collection as fresher is best.

    Chele- Happy Birthday! Fantastic news. Sending you many sticky vibes!

    Janee- Good luck with IVF appointment today.

    Leis- Hope you are doing well. I love your Hot chick!

    Marg- Waiting is such a hard game to play isnt it! Though your holiday sounds like a great idea. Now as we are forced to have a break we are thinking of going away around easter too!

    Shez- I always worry when I am on the synarel that it wont give me the dose required and it wont stop me from Ovulating and therefore not being able to go to egg collection. Crazy Heh! I just think our Worry wort inside gets a free rein when doing a cycle.

    Tam- Glad all went well yesterday and everything is on track.

    Heather, Nola, Bee- hope everything is going smoothly for you all.

    And to anyone I have forgotten hope you are enjoying your day!!!

    Hi ladies

    I had checked out of BB for a few days, had a friend come up from Sydney on his new motorbike and we hit the road at a very fast pace, I must say, it was fantastic therapy!!!!! I had never been on a road bike before but having grown up riding horses all my life and the board, my balance was pretty bloo*y good!

    Chele I hope you get the big :BFP:, honey you deserve it.. good luck Keen too...

    :wave: to everyone else...

    love and hugs leis

    PS yeah my av is pretty cool hey!!! Only just noticed it!!!

    Hi everyone,
    I've been watching this thread for a couple of days and thought I'd better put in an appearance and introduce myself.

    I'm Kar, 39 and am in the ACT. Have been seriously TTC since Oct 2003 with assistance since April 2005. Have no kids and had no pregnancies.

    Blue Sky thanks for your suggestion to join this group by PM. Sorry I couldn't reply to you directly.

    I had a good chuckle when I read the IVF barbie post somewhere around here and felt right at home.

    I'm on my 2nd ICSI cycle and am D9 of downregulating (Synarel). Have my first BT tomorrow to see when I start stims. I had a horror run last time with 39 follies (ovaries felt like bags of sharp gravel and I looked 5 months pregnant which was sort of a nice fantasy but that was about all). But after just avoiding OHSS we only got three embies and none stuck. We're having assisted hatching this time.

    I look forward to getting to know you all better. Is anyone else downregulating or stimming at mo?

    Kar firstly welcome!!
    I am downreging too. Synarel day 6 AF arrived today so off to Dr monday for BT & U/S then stimming.
    I had my first IVF cycle in nov 05 got 24 eggs ending up with OHSS and no transfer 5 snowbubs, all 5 thawed to get one for FET in feb BFN .
    So on to full stim again. I have been doing AC since Oct 04. I managed to get a BFP off a AIH cycle last june ( would have been due tomorrow 16th ) not to be, m/c 8 wks though never meant to be sac very small.
    Wish you all the luck for this cycle we are basically cycle buddies!!

    Good morning, quick message before taking DD to school.

    Welcome to Kar, hope your cycles goes well & brings success. And I hope you enjoy hanging out with us lot in the mean time. I'm about to start my second IVF (with PGD) in a few weeks so you'll have your BFP by then!

    Marg, sounds like a good weekend, I missed the opening ceremony last night, turned on the tv just as the final fireworks were on, but heard it was great. Love sport.

    Chele, hope all goes well today & the TWW, we're here to help.

    Leis, DH has always had a bike. when it was the 2 of us I'd love jumping on the back. very free feeling.

    Shez, hope starting the stim goes well.

    Hope the other 'cyclers' are going well. And all the rest are having a good day.

    Take care

    Well guess what Ladies my last embie is a ...... wait for it ....... ta dahhhh OMG 9 cell it started life as a 5 cell. I have never had that before most have been 8 cells and 1 was only a 4 cell. Maybe with Clomid and 2 HCG support injections this big un will give me a HCG BT result well over 40 on the 30th. The embryologist said that is what she is expecting over 40 so they know I am definately pregnant. Ha I just laughed at her but she is the Senior person so who knows maybe my ~Angel~ will look over this one and make it work .

    Good luck, angel Baby's Mum!!!! Sending lots of sticking vibes to you!
    Welcome Kar!
    Leis, the bike ride sounds fun!
    Marg, hope you have a great time at the games.
    Tam, good luck for your second round.
    Daisy, hope you get the blood sugar thing sorted out soon!
    And and big hello to everyone else!
    Me, well the review appt yesterday was a bit of a mixed bag. In theory, we should have been pregnant with twins 1st injects cycle in December, second injects cycle in Jan, and a singleton in Feb...levels fab, follicles fab etc etc..... Unexplained infertility really sucks!
    We have decided (I think) to do a medicated cycle next month and then straight into IVF for May. I say, "think" because a small part of me still keeps thinking "Be careful what you wish for". Things I've read about IVF stats and children with disabilities scares me. I know the reality is, the child would be as likely to have a disability as any naturally conceived child, but I just can't get it out of my know, the whole notion of messing with nature etc.... Please, oh wise women, I need advice right now, or reassurance, or both!

    Yes the stats are scary but in your heart you will do what you think is right anything can and does happens just as much with a NAtural Prgnancy as with an IVF Pregnancy so do what ever you feel comfortable with as it is your boby and your desicion. Stop looking for trouble with all the stats.

    Sometimes Nature and Dreams need a little Help is the motto of REROMED here in SA perhaps you could speak to Dr about your concerns and try different methods before going full on ICSI.

    Good Luck

    Thanks Angel Baby's Mum....I think I'm just nervous about the next step, which is a big one. IUI is not really an option as DH and I decided that rather than potentially waste abother few months, we really wanted to give it our best shot, through IVF...and if nothing else, it will provide us with some answers as to why our dream hasn't yet come true. It's difficult having no answers, and yet I can see, it's just as hard having explanations.... thank you again for your comments.

    OMG Chele this is the best news.. keep thinking positive sticky vibes and i am sure you will get the big fat positive...

    love leis

    Leis - love the av! Im a big fan of motorbike rides too - sometimes just what you need to take your mind off things for a bit.

    Kar - hey there! Welcome to our gang (hee hee). Totally know what you mean about the ovary pain - all three of my flare cycles have resulted in over 45 follies - and it does sometimes feel as though you will pop, doesnt it?! Fingers crossed for this go - and hope you are into the pregnancy threads very very soon!

    Chele - goodluck with it all - sounds as though all is going very well so far this cycle... and a 9 cell is fantastic! I really hope this is the one for you guys

    Marg - hope you have a ball at the comm games!

    Janee - I think it is fair for you to be thinking the way you are about not wanting to mess with nature and all that. I know I definitely would prefer to do it the 'old fashioned' way . But the important thing is that you are comfortable and happy with the decision you make - regardless what any of us say. Trust in yourself and you will make the right decision for you (like Chele said).
    By the way - Stats, Shmats! If they were accurate I would have at least 3 children by now.... but alas I do not. And many others have one go and bam! So there pretty useless really #-o

    Im now just waiting for AF to arrive - interesting when these months come about when you actually want her to hurry up and show so you can start the next cycle - no doubt she will be late this time!
