    Hi Jo & Nic welcome to the thread! I hope that a BFP isn't too far away for the both of you.

    Megan - i'm pretty sure rubella lasts 10 years too. I got mine done when i was about 12 or so, when i got tested in Jan this year (i was 27) i still had imunity but it was only just border line so i had a booster just to be sure - I'm sure you'll be fine, goodluck!

    Sari - how did your scans go?

    Deb - sorry to hear that AF showed her ugly face again. LOL at your DH letting you get a goat. My DH grew up in the country and would love to get some more animals but i don't think our dogs would appreciate it!

    How are all the girls going who are in the TWW wait?

    AF arrived this morning, not sure if its because of the lap but the cramping is no where near as bad it usually is - i haven't even had to take panadol! We went to see the natropath the other night, she's given us some more vitamins to take (i think if you shook me i would rattle lol) and we go back on Monday night for my first lot of acupuncture and she's also going to put me on some chinese herbs. I'm feeling very relaxed and positive about it all - just have to wait AF to leave so we can start BDing!

    Just a quick one to let you all know I'm thinking of you...Nic welcome - I remember you from the TTC posts....my DS is 6 also.....
    Hope you're all having a great weekend. I'm chilling out in our "break" period, and enjoying no more tests, needles and anticipation (for the moment anyway).
    Will do personals on Monday.
    Take care all

    Hi again
    I am FINALLY having a transfer done tomorrow. DH is very excited. We had 10 defrosted and 9 made it. I got a call yesterday morning and all 9 have between 7 - 8 cells and are graded 1, 2 and 3. They grade from 1 - 5, 1 being the best and 5 being the worst. So hopefully we will have at least 1 tomorrow. I will know about about 8am.
    (they are being grown to blast). I am excited but also very scared.
    But today we are taking DH's boat out for its very first journey. So that should keep my mind off tomorrow.
    Take care everyone and I hope you are all going ok.

    Hi everyone,
    Well i've been a bit quiet during the TWW, felt like i was in limboland and i guess i was. I have been cramping and spotting on and off for the past two days and this morning i woke up to proper AF one day early and i also did 2 HPT and they were both BFN so i dont guess i need to go for that blood test on Thursday...so thats it for me...we cant afford to do IVF again for a fair while and obviously my eggs are no good being that only 2 out of 8 fertilised, and we worked so hard just to get 8 eggs out of me, and that they only got to a 4cell and a 5cell on day three and everyone else's seem to be 6-8 cells by day 3, so it's back to the drawing board...saving up again and using Kim's eggs next time. Kim has never had the urge to be pregnant or give birth..but she said that if i couldnt do it she would do it for me. I feel like my body will never get pregnant and so maybe we should just do IUI with Kim. Just made friends with some other girls in Brisbane who got pregnant on their fifth IUI.

    Oh Megan :hugs: I am so sorry that AF arrived for you.
    I hope you don't have to wait too long before you can try again. IUI is a cheaper option, so maybe you might be able to do that sooner? We have just had Cherie here with her successful IUI cycle 1st go, so it's definitely possible!

    Megan, hun, I'm so sorry that AF has shown up for you :hugs: As the other Megan mentioned, I'm a brissy girl, and we got a BFP on our first IUI (and DH has very low sperm count), after a failed IVF cycle, so don't give up hope.

    Nic - I'm glad you've made it over to the LTTTC section (they're all wonderful!) and so glad that your DH is happy for you to start looking into things further. I hope it happens quickly for you.

    Thanks Cherie We had a little chat in bed this morning, and he wants to keep trying until xmas, then if nothing has happened we will make some phone calls. We have friends who were seeing the FS we have been given a referral for and she said he will do all the tests and then send me away to temp for 3 months. So the plan is to temp for 3 months before we even get a new referral and make the call.

    The local GP/hospital Dr has been stood down, and he is the one I got my referral from! So will also have to wait and see what happens there and possibly find myself another Dr.

    Hi everyone,

    I havenít been on much lately, too caught up in my own world.

    Our first IVF cycle has ended unsuccessfully, with AF turning up last Thursday. Even though I knew our chance of success wasnít great, I was pretty devastated. Just canít help but get optimistic I guess. Now getting a bit emotionally stronger.

    I ended up with a LP (from EPU) of only 12 days Ė didnít get to finish my 15 day course of Crinone. Not sure if this has happened to other people???

    I will go in for my BT on Tuesday, even though itís just a formality. But they want me to have it and I have some questions anyway about how to prepare for our FET.

    Special hugs to Deb and Megan TooMumsÖI am thinking of you both and know how hard it is at the moment.

    Hi All,

    Danni - Great Job baby!!!! I am sooooo incredibly happy for you. You definately deserve it!!!! Wishing you a H&H pregnancy.

    Megan - I am so sorry AF showed up. Maybe you can try IUI like the other girls suggested. Don't give up just yet - I know it's hard to deal with the conststant disappointments but there are some girls who are living proof that it does work....eventually. to you and I hope you both hang in there.

    I have been keeping to myself the last week or so. Been feeling kind of sorry for myself, you know the whole "Why Me" thing creeping back in. I just found out that my SIL is pregnant again which really P***** me off as she is a Drug addict, has had 4 kids already, 2 taken away from her and uses during her whole pregnancy...I mean WHAT THE!!!!! Why can a body that has been put through so much crap manage to conceive and sustain pregnancies??? I just don't get it. Here we are trying to do everything right and freak out if we drink too much coffee and no result...jet she just pops them out left right and centre. Not to mention the numerous abortions she has had. Sorry Girls I just needed to get this off my chest, I have been through the crying stage, the feeling sorry for myself stage, and now I have just hit the Anger stage .
    Anyway, looks like my cycle will be cancelled as my body is not playing ball. Eostrogen levels still low (152) so they will probably induce a period then put me on Clomid to regulate my cycle and do FET once I have O'd on the Clomid. So we got another couple of weeks to wait.
    OMG sorry for the long post - and my rantings....hope everyone is having a great day and chat soon
    Love Alex

    Hi there,
    Thanks for the nice welcome.

    Megan - my rubella was fine & I had mine at least 12 years ago (probably longer) so hoping for you it is fine.
    In answer to your question, dh has had swimmers tested & are fine, I have had two b/t to confirm ovulation - fine but that is it.
    I am starting to have this horrible feeling though that something is wrong with me, trying to stay +.

    Nic - glad to see you took the plunge as well & moved over, its nice to know a few people.

    Mel - I'm not up with all the technical words yet but it all sounds good for you.

    Twomums - sorry your having such a hard time atm, wish you all the best saving for your next try.

    Allie - sorry af arrived for you, thinking of you.

    Alex - I know it doesn't seem fair, I am always ranting to dh about all these so called 'mothers' who don't even care about their babies that just seem to get pg at the drop of a hat.
    It makes my blood boil, they don't even realise how precious a gift a child is.

    Does anyone have any advie for my first specialist appointment, am I going to have to insist they start looking into things?
    Jo
