    Kate- I love the dream!! Isn't it weird that we dream these bizarre things. My favourite dream is that I finally have my longed for baby in my arms. Sometimes these dreams are so real that when I wake up and realise I don't have a baby, I am devastated. Am I the only crazy one to have this dream??

    Please let this next cycle be the one for me..I am really in a bad place at the moment.



    Night all

    Hi Bel,

    You're definitely not on your own with those dreams. I dreamt I had a little boy and he was about 6 months old - I was changing his diaper in the room we would use for a nursery and I was blowing raspberries on his feet. I remember in the dream telling him 'guess what I loved you even before you were born!'.

    It is so hard to wake up from dreams like this - they seem so real.

    Bel.... it doesnt get easier..... we just get learn to deal with it..... some days we deal with it better than others..... The way I look at it.... for every crappy day, I m closer to a good one... and for every BFN, I m closer to a BFP. Its a journey and its just one foot infront of the other

    been looking for a way to feel better about getting back into ivf cycle (bfn on first transfer in may), so happy yesterday to find an acupuncturist locally who specialises in fertility.. gotta make time for trying it! Sometimes its seems like everyone else is in control of ttc, some positive steps forward will be gr8!. To everyone else who has tried AP, hope i find the same stress release as you too
    hugs to all, keep positive with your cycles and for bfp all round!

    Possums good luck with ET today! Hope it all goes well.

    Miss K, good luck with everything. I hope it all goes well both tonight with the HCG levels and tomorrow with the draining of the fluid. You poor thing. Ill be thinking of you! Get well.

    Hello to everyone else. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

    I started my injections on Saturday and so far so good. I am now watching my carb intake and drinking my 2 ltrs of water a day. I really dont want to get anywhere near the OHSS. I did well last time, hope this time i avoid it again.

    Suffering a bit from Mondayitis today Hope everyone else is avoiding the monday bug!

    Hi Everyone,

    Just a quick note to say that my scan went well this morning, and we are looking to do FET on Wednesday. Had first acupuncture on Saturday and it was great. I feel calm for the first time in months... not to mention I have slept better over past 2 days than I have in recent times!

    Hope everyone is well... I'll post personals later.

    Hi All,

    Miss K- Sorry to hear you are in hospital still and that you are having a bad time. I hope so much that your levels are great tonight. All this will be so worth it in the end. Just stay positive and strong and let us know how things are going. All the best for tomorrow.

    Paula- Good luck with the injections. Physically I hate doing them, but mentally I don't mind it cause I know it means you are well and truly on the way to getting that BFP

    Janie- I can't believe you are about to embark on your next TWW. I'm so happy for you. Just wish I could join you and be BT buddies again this month!! All the best for the TF. Keep going with the acupuncture...I am a strong believer.

    TL- 9 follies is great. Look after yourself. Am looking forward to hearing good news from you soon

    I'm doing a bit better today. Spoke to one of the nurses at my clinic this morning and she said she really wouldn't expect me to be feeling anywhere near normal for at least another week...so I'm not a freak after all- just impatient. This is all about waiting...and mind games!!

    Have a good afternoon all

    Hugs Bel

    Tiggerlinda 9 follies sounds great.

    Bel dont you just hate the crazy mind games and not to mention the dreaded WAITING games... And we then have 9 months to wait also!

    Hi everyone...well after a nervous five days wondering how our three little embryos were going and if at least one would be strong and ready for transfer, we had a successful ET this morning! Very exciting and over before I knew it! DH and I are full of hope and also nervous etc. And now for the horrible wait. Will try and stay calm and also slow myself down to give this embryo a chance to stick.
    I'm usually very active, but will rest more for a while I think.
    I am about to head off for acupuncture...also went last week to help calm me down and get my body ready.
    Our other two embryos are still going...they just weren't quite as developed...they'll check them again tomorrow and decide whether to freeze them or not.

    Janie...hope your transfer goes well! any tips for the TWW? I want to be busy to distract myself, but also want to cut back on exercise (which is my usual stress release).

    Bel- I hope you start to feel better physically and spiritually soon.

    Kate- weird dream! Funny the things are minds create


    Miss K- hope you are doing better soon and hope you get the positive results you are hoping for!!


    TL- hope the follies keep growing...and you have many eggs ready


    Paula- good luck with the injections.

    Sorry if i have missed anyone. Gotta head out soon.

    Possums- So very happy to hear that after all you have been through, your little one is on board. When I do a transfer I try to do as little as possible for the 1st 3 days til the little embie decides where it wants to live and implants. For me it just helps with the mind games. I just find it easier to have nothing to blame myself for...so I am in total agreeance with taking it easy. No need to lie in bed for 3 days, just to slow down as you say. To survive the TWW I make sure I have lots of DVD's and books for when I'm sitting round thinking about being in the TWW. And I have a beautiful TTC buddy who really helps to keep me sane. Make sure you join the TWW thread and the ladies there will offer you support too. Most of us here in this thread have been through the TWW before and we'll all be here to support you. All the very best...keep us posted

    Hugs Bel

    Paula- you know what..I can handle the needles, the drugs, the EPU, the pain, the op I've just had, I can find the money somehow for all this and I can manage to get all the time off work I need but it is definately the mind games I find the hardest. There are a few little things I do to try and lessen the mind games I play with myself but generally they are the killer...I often say I would love to go to sleep and wake up 9 months later with a healthy baby in my arms. Wouldn't that be fantastic!!

    Hi all,

    Bel and Paula, I wish we were in the TWW again all together You girls were such a great support to me last time. However, I know you will both be back in there in no time. Bel, I soooo know what you mean about the mind games. It is enough to drive you crazy!

    TL - 9 follies is fantastic! I think that was about what I had on my first scan last time and I ended up with 20 follies and 12 eggs collected. So looking really good. Are you feeling better on this new protocol?

    Paula - hooray to starting on the jabs Time will fly by now and you will be in the TWW before you know it! By the way, with the acupuncture the most important ones are the one before transfer (on the same day) and the one after transfer (within 24 hours). Those are the ones that have had research done on them and show success with helping with pregnancy rates. You might have to go in for one session prior just to discuss everything, but I don't see why they wouldn't do just the ones around transfer if that is what you want.

    Abbie - I had first acupuncture on Sat and I cannot believe how good I felt afterwards.

    Miss K hope you are feeling better. When do you find out for sure about BFP? I have my fingers and toes crossed for you

    To everyone I have missed

    janie, awesome am looking forward to trying acupunture for ttc, only ever had it for sore joints so anything to get the body and mind in the right state! Will keep in mind the day b4 ET

    tl, so great to hear about the follies, starting to actually look forward to my next round on the injections now!

    bel and paula, for your tww, dunno how anyone keeps their mind sane, thats all i could think about for 2 weeks while still trying to have a 'normal' life!
    MissK, hope you get thru it all soon with a little one as a your reward
    hugs to all

    Have edited my original message which was a bit too emotional and I really don't want to offend anyone. Just saw on the news again another very sad story of anothers baby's life taken. I had a hard night tonight.

    Hugs Bel
