Please do not post baby/child/pg tickers or pg related signatures (eg blinking BFP icons) etc in this forum out of respect for them.

    It will be odd, Kell. But get those embies in the freezer, get well, and then bring them home! It will work out ok. Good luck!

    Thank you so much everyone. Feeling a bit nervous (and admittedly, pretty scared!) - your positive thoughts and wishes are really appreciated. We'll be right! Is sort of exciting too.

    Hi everyone

    I hope the weekend has been relaxing and restful for all. We've been getting ready for my IL's-to-be arrival next week leading up to the wedding - back to wedding preparations today (hopefully).

    dusty 3 strong embies!!! WOW!!This great feeling that we all have for you is proving itself at the moment, isn't it!? That's your mother-instinct kicking, hun, wanting to get those embies back inside you! Thinking of you lots

    Kell I figure you're probably off for EPU already this morning (hoping!), but just sending you lots and lots of good wishes that you're well and EPU goes well. 'Been thinking of you lots on the weekend. We're all thinking of you. BG's post last night was awesome and expresses it all wonderfully xo

    Missy How are you doing? Weekend go ok for you, hun?

    BW I understand your predicament for finding the best time and best options for a cycle and the stresses that are going on in your life - I chose to start mine the same day we got our fertility results, instead of waiting for next year as we are only here for a few more months into the new year before moving to the UK. As a result of that choice, it looks like my cycle is potentially going to (the way it looks atm) run not just towards my wedding, but interfere with my ILs arrival from the UK and our planned holiday to Tassie with them before the wedding. Although I wasn't informed correctly to begin with, I did make a choice where I knew it would be close to big events in my life. But it's all about balancing life's commitments, isn't it? And we don't regret the decisions we make, as we think about them long and hard and weigh things up. And it's all about balance. The further I get into this cycle, the more I realise what a big balancing act IVF is. Everything hinges on one thing or another in the cycle, and then that affects and alters everything else in your life. It's a big balancing act. Eeeek. I'm venting/blahing again - sorry. I just wanted to say I, (and I reckon everyone else!)understands the stress of balancing a cycle in your life. I hope that you have the support you need to help you through the stress of that. I know that you have it here

    Melsta Thanks for sticking up for me late last week about the clinic staff and feeling like an idiot with them. Each time you ring them you speak to different nurse and it's a bit like pot luck... you never know the personality/mood of the nurse you are going to speak to beforehand. I will say that when I called about AF, the nurse I got was helpful and polite. They generally are. It's just when you're feeling hypersensitive about things, you don't need another person who's meant to offer you support to have a go/make you feel stupid. Thanks heaps, hun. I hope you're doing well at the moment.

    Mon, BW, Mel1977, blackduckies, slyder and everyone else whom I might of missed, thank you all for your advice about AF after the pill and your experiences with it. It really, *really* put my mind at rest over the weekend.

    But.... no AF yet. Today is day 7 since the pill and day 16 on synarel. I'm at home in pj's today, back to bed soon. A lot of difficulty sleeping last night - terrible AF cramps overnight and this morning and I feel like I'm in the middle of a bad AF right now physically, but not even a sign of it. Every night since last Thursday when cramping starting (progressively stronger each day), I've been thinking "maybe it will start overnight" - maybe it actually won't! Down-reg scan tomorrow morning - just trying to wait and see what FS says tomorrow - will ask lots of questions. The advice that everyone gave me here has helped a great deal (especially about AF) Also trying (lots of trying atm) not to get too stressed that it looks like this cycle is going to push into plans leading to the wedding (as mentioned above) if injections are delayed. Excuse the venting and the length of this post. Trying not to make a big deal out of this delayed AF and it's a bit of struggle, with the PMS symptoms Think positive, Miss C!

    Hugs to all, hoping for and looking forward to more good news in the thread!

    Miss C

    How everyone, hope you are all doing ok.

    Dusty - Congrats on such strong little embies

    Babybliss - Good luck for your EPU today, fingers crossed that you make a speedy recovery

    Having ET today at 2.50pm, feeling nervous this time... last time felt kind of excited/nervous but this time really just nervous. We are having 2 transferred today so hopefully at least one wants to hang around for a while. Bring on the 2WW!

    Good morning, ladies,

    I wanted to introduce your newest moderator of this forum - slyder!

    He is a well known and regular contributor to this thread, and our very first ever active male member of the LT forums. You all know him already, so I'm sure his new role here will be very welcomed. I am incredibly pleased that he's agreed to join the team and help out around here.

    So be gentle everyone (or not! Lol!), but do feel free to contact him with feedback, comments or suggestions, as you would me.

    Welcome Slyder!

    Hi everyone,

    Been really busy and lying low. Life gets so busy sometimes.

    Quick update on our journey TTC.

    Next week we'll be three months on Antonia's Amazon Fertility Program. Spent the first two months just preparing our body as recommended. Have been more focussed on TTC the last few weeks. Our energy levels are still very good even though DH and I have both been really busy with work.

    Seeing Antonia again later this week. Will keep you all posted.

    Big hug to everyone and all the best with your individual journeys TTC.

    Love,
    Kerri

    Mel and Kell, all the very best for today and I hope things go well for both of you.

    Miss C, I think (based on what you've written lately) you are doing a tremendous job in keeping your head with the uncertainty of your cycle and with your upcoming wedding and holiday. Just remember that no matter how things pan out, there is a solution and things will tie in together one way or the other (I say this, but I know it's easier said than done).

    TL, your next transfer will be here before you know it. Christmas and the new year will fly by.

    Kerri, I hope Antonia's programs help you. I know she gets rave reviews.

    Hi to everyone else. This thread is moving so fast it's hard to keep up!

    Thanks to Sushee for my intro, and to everyone else for your kind words. If I can help in any way just PM me. I haven't sorted out a BB address yet, but will in due course.
