    HI all - Sorry I will struggle with personals as weve sterted a new therad and I am pretty flat out.

    Well I feel sick, sick, sick. I am eating dry toast and crackers to try to feel better. Not sue if its a sign of implantation or just from the Prednisone I am taking??? I am not sleeping either - lietrally getting baout 2 hours a nights & am starting to feel seriously run down. I get mild cramps for most of the night (not AF type), so must be good I guess.

    Sushee - Just wondering - I did the HPT test to check the Prgnyl had left my system, but it came up -tive?? Would it normally leave your system within 24 hours - it was the low dose - 1500 iu?? By the way - so pleased for your help - as others have said you are a wealth of knwoledge.

    Lou - HOw you tracking in the 2ww?? I am week down today - 1 week to go. Why is 14 days so long, if I was on holidays it would already be over!!!!

    WIllow - Megan - STill grinning for both of you.....

    DB,

    I gather with some people pregnyl never shows up on a hpt. I know of one lady who tested after each pregnyl shot and never got a +ve. If your dose was 1500iu, it could be that it's out of your system already, maybe.

    Not much help I know, but if you keep getting -ves over the next few days and then get a +ve on Sat, you'll know it'll be the real deal!

    Hello hello, hello!!!!

    OMG The energy in here at the moment is just soooo fantastic!!!!
    HUGEST congratulations to both Megan & Willow.... What an amazing feeling you guys must be experiencing right now!!!!
    I am just so happy for you both xxx
    Dreambub, Jo, and all of you other ladies in the 2ww, my most wonderful wishes to all of you.... may you all be drowned in babydust!!!

    As for me, sorry I haven't been around much - things have just been so busy and I always have the time to read the posts.. just not the time to post all the time!!!
    We are still waiting to see new clinics in regards to our next IVF - Just so in two minds (well 3 actually!) as to what to do - do we try SIVF, Westmead, or stay where we are???!!!!!
    FS wants us to see SIVF, but the fees are just holding us back, and I met a lady last week who has just given birth to her first baby girl through our current clinic, and our 2 doctors!
    She had all of the same problems as me, and many attempts like me - tried SIVF but had a terrible experience, and went back to our clinic to get her long awaited BFP.
    I know everyone is different, but who knows just what to do???!!
    I also don't know how I feel about the fact that SIVF will only let you put one embryo back.... I like the thought of 2.. God, I would have 4 put back if I was allowed!!!!!

    At the moment, though, we are TTC naturally for the first time in 8 yrs... lets just hope that 1 little unblocked tube in Jan might be enough!!!!
    I am day 21 of our first cycle since my lap, and am feeling incredibly average... nauseas, sore heavy bb's, and generally yuk!!
    Had a little bit of spotting about 5 days ago, which is when I started to feel horrible, its all fantastically coincidental!!!
    Last night I made mashed potato and couldn't eat it because the smell of the milk made me feel extremely ill.... I had this problem of smelling dairy & not being able to cope with it when I was pg with Luke....... ah, time will tell, but a little hoping & wishing can only be a positive thing!!!!!!!
    Otherwise I am just going to log on here as much as possible and hope that your babydust becomes EXTREMELY contagious!!!!

    Best of wishes to you all xxxx

    Holly xxx

    BG - I am so sorry to hear about your Nan. My Gran died in 2003, 6 months after our wedding, so I never got to tell her about our TTC problems. I actually inherited my health issues from her, but didn't find out until after she'd gone.

    I am sure your Nan is up there watching over you.

    There is a great vibe in here, it's a shame that everyone seems to be scattered across the country as it would have been great to meet up!

    Hugs to everyone, there's a mix of emotions floating around, but both Megan's and Willow's news seems to have uplifted us all! Megan, we're all hanging out for your test on Friday

    i agree Alex - would have been great to be able to catch up with this group - there just seems to be a decent connection between us!

    like you, my nan didn't know about our struggle TTC - she asked me at the weekend whether we were planning on having a family - and with everything that's been going on, i thought it would be too much of a burden for her - so told a little porkie pie and said we were waiting for a while... and i'm glad i did it - that's not something she needed to be worrying about.

    Im in two minds about posting, everything seems to be so positive in here and Im going to be a downer on things.
    I picked up my referal for specialist as they required the actual doctors name on it rather that just the place. My DH organised to have his 2 semen anyalsis results posted out. We received them last night and well it just rocked the boat completely. I had been reading up all about PCOS and medications and was actualyl starting to feel positive about loosing some weight before going at it like rabbits to get our BFP and saving some money etc. Im also in a new job and enjoying it, have wanted that for such a long time too.
    I was reading some other mail and then caught sight of his face adn knew it wasnt good. The first test when he rang was told that his normal sperm was low and would retest again later. Thats why on the test it says PLEASE REFER TO FERILITY CLINIC. Im so angry at not being told, yet combined with the fact that the 2nd test doesnt show moropology, but states decreased number of normal forms. When my DH rang he was told "everything was normal and ok". Im so angry at not being told the correct. This second test was done in November. We seriously could have got the ball rolling quicker than what we have. I hate being told everything was fine when it wasnt. DH is just saying I just want things fixed adn seems quite calm.
    After reading through some books about assisted conception, i got worried and terrified of all the processes and thought oh well its only me, some metmorfin and i'll be fine. But according to these results we will need more for sure. I know the FS will give us more direction anyway.
    I started to think this is all too hard.

    Summer, I would be furious as well at being told things were fine when they weren't.
    I hope you get some direction at your FS appointment.

    Looks like Friday is a big day in this thread for a few people!

    Sorry summer - i dont tend to look at tickers all the time!!

    some advice i should have taken myself is please write down all your questions and cross then off as your FS answers them. and remember your paying for this appointment so dont walk out of there feeling confused also take some notes of what s/he is saying

    I hope that helps and im wishing you all the best

    Sporty. Nice of you to drop by.

    Summer, you have no idea just how much of those posts could have been written by me at some point in time! I so wanted the problem to just be me - to take all of the burden on myself and not let DH have to feel bad about it. But in some ways, I think it's bringing us closer together that it's a shared problem and not just one of us. The decreased number of normal forms is morphology, just under a different name. DH actually kept the results of his second analysis from me. This was the one done by a specialist semenologist, and the assessment on that one was "unsuitable for natural conception". He didn't tell me that until the second FS appointment when we were told that he had absolutely no sperm capable of making it to the right place even with IUI. I know it's utterly depressing, but have faith! There are things that can be done to overcome every single one of those problems. Metformin will fix the insulin resistance, there are drugs to make you ovulate if needed, the technology is around for IVF, and ICSI can be done if sperm numbers aren't up to scratch. I know it's expensive! We have to produce $3600 for Monday morning... but most of that will come back to us from medicare fairly soon afterwards. Try to think positively - the delay has actually allowed you to become eligible for maternity leave before you'll actually need it. The advantages of having a guaranteed job to go back to after bubs is born are enormous! You may eventually decide not to, but the knowledge that the job will be there for you should be comforting. Don't ever feel bad about posting, we're here to support each other through the bad times as well as rejoice with each other for the good times. :hugs: It will be ok! Trust me. Friday isn't far away now, and you'll very soon get things underway... and then it will all happen so fast your head will be spinning!

    BG, I lost my Grandmother late last year to cancer. I knew that the one thing she loved most of all was her family, and that nothing would have made her happier than to have another great-grandchild... I am still quite sad that I never was able to produce one for her while she was alive, nor even tell her that we were trying hard but were having a few problems. It's tough, and very hard to deal with, but I'm taking comfort in the fact that where she is now there is no more pain and she knows everything now... and hopefully is helping God pick out the right little soul to be our child. Once again, I'm so very sorry that your Nan is gone, and very sorry that it happened on such a special day for you.

    Alex, I know exactly what you mean! Everyone here is wonderful, and we seem to have bonded so very quickly. Hopefully one day we'll be able to gather small groups of us together and show off our gorgeous babies. It's certainly giving me some inspiration into talking DH into taking me around the country a bit to meet up with people where possible.

    Hollybolly, my clinic will also only put one embryo back, which is a little depressing as I quite like the idea of twins. Although I have heard stories about one embryo being put back and resulting in twins - identical ones! Also a freakish FET cycle that resulted in boy-girl twins, with both the frozen embryo sticking, and natural conception with the egg that was released at ovulation. Lets just hope all those signs are positive and the decision will be completely unnecessary.

    Loula, Dreambub, I'm sure sushee gathered up all the left over baby dust in the other thread and brought it over here. Plus Sporty's dose. I think we've got enough to take care of you two and guarantee Megan some good news for Friday as well.


    After waking up with synarel headaches, arthritis pain and period pain this morning I am finally starting to feel a bit more human! I have acupuncture tomorrow and that should have me feeling a heap better. Does anyone else sound like they have a permanent head cold while on synarel? People are starting to comment on how stuffy and nasal I sound!

    Many of you ladies might not know my full story ...... but I had my appt with my ever so competent RE this afternoon and...

    DH's results came in and they are absolutely astoundingly fantastic!! It is just incredible and we are looking at doing a cycle next cycle so probably starting lucrin injections around 19 March (assuming a normal cycle for me this time around).... very excited

    Plus RE has decided for me to go on the Clexane Injections as well as the pessaries and also wants to put 2 emby's back straight away - so its all very exciting and my hope is back at a level it hasnt been in years! YAYE! Go Team!

    Hope I get to join the mass exodus (with the rest of you lovely ladies) that will continue over the next few months....
