    Hi Girls,

    Hope all are well.

    Melbel - Hope you had a great day on Saturday - my Wedding was definately the most memorable day of my life so far, it went so quick though. I hope you had a ball.



    Lou - Fingers crossed for you. Waiting for you to post and hoping for a BFP, you never know. If news is not so great then you have a few choices to make. Its great that you have so many snow bubs! My clinic will not allow a full STim cycle to go ahead if you have frozens on ice...I would love to though, as every time I have an FET theres on ly 1 & I am secretly hoping for twins.

    Shannon - 10 follies is good a good number - if I recall correctly this is your first full stim?? Even better if thats the case...

    As for me AF arrived on Friday, Nearly over now, so I guess I will be preparing for an FET in about 2-3 weeks. Not sure what to do though as I also have an appt with Dr Sacks in Sydney on the immunology issues and he suggested waiting to do the FET until after the appt. I know it makes sense but I am very impatient and want to do the FET ASAP.....also I havent yet told my FS that I have an appt with Dr Sacks.

    Hi Melbel,

    I hope you had a fantastic wedding day. I am sure it was everything you dreamed of.

    Everyone else, I'm so sorry for the lack of personals - I've not logged on for a week and can't catch up!

    Not much news from here, I've started with the chinese herbs (tablet form), and have another acupuncture treatment on Wednesday. Still 4 weeks until we get the results of the genetic testing I am hopefully finishing work next week (yippee!), after resigning 2 months ago, finally they've found a replacement. I'm going to take it easy and try and look after myself to get to optimum health for the next full stim cycle.

    Having a bad day - just had a big row with DH - over something stupid. Now I feel bad and have apologised. I don't know why I get so annoyed and cross - I'm not even on any ivf drugs at the moment (for a change).

    Hope you're all well!

    Juat thought id let you in on the results of my BT. as i knew deep down it was a BFN. not even a raised HCG at all. (which i always check as i have had it raised twice but not enought to confirm a healthy pg)

    so back to the board room for up. my np is going to give me some herbs to improve my circluation, my hands and feet are always cold! I dont know if i can do another stim i havent checked yet and so i dont know if they'll let me. i hope so if im taking all new herbs might get DH on some too.

    hope everyone else is ok

    I'm sorry, Lou. Seems to me that no matter how expected it is, it's still devestating to get that news.

    I've been having a pretty crappy time lately... won't go into it now, had a bit of a vent earlier. And a chat with a friend who has been an egg donor in the past which cheered me up a little. Have a long way to go, though.

    I still have a huge mark where I had the trigger shot last week! I hope I can remember to ask about that when I'm at the clinic tomorrow. Have to be up at some ungodly hour to have another blood test... back to the synarel tomorrow - ugh!

    hey bw - i did read your vent and didnt know what to write other than sorry and i do know how you feel (i hate it when people say that but in here we really do know how each other feels)

    Anyway looks like next time we may be cycle buddies as as soon as af is here i jumping back on i think its the only way i can cope.

    Look after yourself hun

    Thanks, Lou. I don't think there is anything anyone can say. It's just one of those things we all have to deal with. I do feel a bit better having let it all out, though.

    How long before you'd expect AF? From when the trigger shot was given, I think I've got another week to go before she arrives here, and then another 6 days after that before I start injections... does the whole process always drag like this, or is it because I'm on a long protocol at the moment?

    Lou - so sorry sweet - i know you'd said all along that you thought it wasn't going well, but that little spark of hope always lives on til that BT, doesn't it - i so hope your next cycle is more successful

    BW - sorry you're still having a hard time - there are so many hurdles you keep facing. i really hope you've faced the last of them now, and your next cycle is all smooth sailing and smiling faces at the end

    Mel - how'd the wedding go? i hope you had a fabulous day - i will always remember my wedding day as, no matter what else was happening at the time to get me down, that day was perfect

    Alex - i know what you mean about being snippy at little things. I'm so lucky i have a very mild mannered DH - he just lets me let off steam whenever i need to, then waits til i've calmed down again and we can talk things through - i'm glad he's not a typical red-head! with two stubborn red-heads in the house, we could be facing world war 3 every time one of us gets upset!

    to everyone else - hope you're having a good start to your week - and to those who are testing or having EPU's or transfers this week GOOD LUCK!

    IM backkkkkkkkkkkk. LOL We have now upgraded to wireless broadband and had a few teething problems! Thanks to the great service we had with ringing help desks and having people who cant speak english try and help.
    Im off sick from work, have a doctors appointment 2morrow with throat infections/ tonsilitis or something of the like. I think AF is visiting, although very strange its so light. DH revealed tonight that hes really worried about his tests coming up too, but its a very good thing that he felt ok enough to share.
    Going go back and read everything now xoxoxo

    Welcome back, Summer! I've been missing you. Isn't broadband great?

    Shannon, good luck with the EPU. Those trigger shots do bloody well HURT! I hope you have less pain afterwards than I did - I still have a giant mark on my belly where they injected me. How does EPU work when your DH can't make it there? We were told that was when DH needed to deliver the goods... with me, at the hospital. I hope we'll hear good news on how things go afterwards.

    Thank you all for your best wishes. The wedding was just beautiful...everything was just the way I wanted it to be and being at home was so relaxed and the food was great with a gorgeous cake...blah blah blah. Geoff usrpised me and took me to the Sofitel for our weddingnight and to our surprise they had upgraded us to a deluxe corner suite with 270 degree city views and there was a bottle of very expensive french champagne on ice and some belgian chocolates ....yummo. mind you looking down from the 43 rd floor I don't reccomend....freaky!!
    We went to Warrnambool for a quick overnight visit and had a pcinic lunch with some belly belly girls yesterday and shared our wedding cupcakes with them. Is it just me or do you wee alot with the stim part of the cycle. We had tpo stop three times on the way home today and my abdomen is defnitely a bit uncomfortable down there but otherwise no other symptoms.

    We have a scan first thing in the morning to check the eggies are growing well and hopefully will get told to have a trigger shot on Weds with a pick up Friday morning. All of that means we could have an embie on board by monday evening....woohoo what a great wedding pressie!!

    Thanks BW, Missed chatting with you too hun. And yes teh broadband is great. Its not as fast as other connections as we only choose the slowest one and its not anywhere close to running at that but it kicks butt on the dial up thats for sure. Just have to move DH off here now so I can actually get on here.
    Melbel Your wedding sounds divine and the cupcakes...yummo. Your DH sounds like such a great guy with all those surprises for you. GoodLuck with your scan today.

    Yes im home. Had a better nights sleep and because I got to sleep in for an hour and half longer too. Throat is still painful but I have my voice back. And now AF has decided she is going to show up. So add on the cramps from here, and some cramping from Metformin, Im so over it all.

    Mel, Congrats on your wedding! sounds like it was very lovely

    Lou - Sorry about the BFN. Hugs

    shannon - Hope all goes well on Wednesday.

    BW - Ouchies at the mark still left on your belly!

    Summer - Lots of hugs for AF arriving.

    Big hello to everyone else I missed.

    I'm back to CD1 today. I was telling the girls in the TTC 6+ months, that I get AF and my SIL gets a BFP! Have been feeling pretty crappy about it. Had a whinge in the life members forum about it too. Feel awful for complaining, especially since we already have a beautiful DD. Anyway, wednesday night is a bbq and drinks..lots of I think!

    Congratulations Mel on your wedding. Glad you enjoyed the day. I loved my wedding day.

    Scan on Saturday was all fine, as was second Scan today. Uped my dose of Puregon to 175- hoping that won't make me feel too ill. Plan is for Trigger on Saturday, EPU next Monday, and if all goes well and we get some embies, ET on Friday- all very exciting!!

    Well my scan this morning showed at least 20 follies ready to pop and the nurse has just rung and confirmed EPU will be Friday morning at sparrows fart!!!
    After the fertilisation and PGD the Doc is hopeful we may get about 6 good embryos out of that lot. He posed the question one or two? So now I am off to talk to my diabtetes specialist to get his thoughts before we decide.

    If anyone is interested there are some wedding piccies up on my homepage and also if you go to the main gallery page on the site my sister has her snaps from the day in debbies album.

    Hi everyone,

    Congrats to EJE, Mel & Shannon - very exciting - your EPU very soon!!!! Good luck.

    Mel you looked lovely on your wedding day, congratulations!

    Summer & Nic - sorry AF showed up. Hugs to you both...

    I've just been given the go-ahead to start injections tomorrow night. I'm on 150 Gonal F - can anyone tell me what to expect? Are there any side effects from it? Other than a bloated stomach in a few days due to all the eggs growing (hopefully)? I'm due for another blood test next Wednesday.

    Then the exciting part - EPU & ET...then the dreaded 2WW...

    AAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Know that's out of my system...

    Plan A failed with my ovary growing a follicle/cyst.

    Plan B was the trigger shot... It failed today with my progesterone level being a whopping great 9.6.

    So, we move to Plan C... I'm really wondering just how far through the freaking alphabet we will have to get before we find a plan that works... Plan X? Plan Y? Plan Z?

    DH has to go into the clinic tomorrow (I can't, not without missing work, and I've got kids with assessment tasks coming up) and pick up a script for primolut. I start Primolut tomorrow, finish on the 6th. On the 5th I start lucrin (I asked the nurse over the phone about my general snottyness and whether that could effect the synarel, apparently it's a yes), 20 units per day. Hopefully DH can figure out how that injection process works, as I won't be there for the instructions. Next blood test to see if we can start puregon injections will take place on the 16th of March... I'm going to have to send some questions in with DH - such as why did I need a blood test before resuming now, but I won't need another before starting lucrin?

    I'm sure there's more... but I'm just SO hungry right now! breakfast didn't happen and the munchy bar I ate on the way to work (after the clinic) just wasn't quite enough... my stomach was digesting itself by the time I got to recess, and then again when I got to lunch, and by the time I finally had a free period, I got to spend that on the phone to the clinic nurse. Must... Find... FOOD!!!
