    i think it swings form one moment to the next - but overall she respects him and the way he works, and i think that's more important than likes or dislikes - those emotions change depending on the moment! respect is much more important...

    TL - go the drycleaning .. smart move that one !!

    Dusty - yep I agree with TL, everything new is happening for you in the new year so this is a fresh start ... I havent heard anything about Next Gen, but I do know that my FS also works out of Liverpool (SIVF) and I would recommend him in an absolute heartbeat ... this is my first attempt and I cannot fault him .... let me know if you want details ... but either way good luck ... when will you get your referral ?

    yep we had the same thing re a referal but a tip for you, a GP referral lasts for 12 months whereas a specialist referral last for 3 months, so when we initially had our appt and took our referral from my GYN, they said go back to your normal GP and get their referall as it lasts for longer, especially in the eyes of Medicare - it had something to do with rebates etc ...

    My FS has not called me back and I have just left another message like a mad stalker. The hospital just called to confirm my EPU on Friday and I said yep - dear God what have I done. I iron pillow slips and doona covers, but not sheets - and face washers - well that's just going too too far.

    Dusty - I am with TL - these could be all wonderful, positive changes for 2008...

    TL - Does the dragon have to be facing any direction on DH's side of the bed?

    Why won't the phone ring????? Is she trying to make me crazy - oh this woman is cruel!

    TL -

    On the BW front...

    Carla, BW has developed OHSS following her stim cycle. for some reason, her body produces massive amounts of estrogen during the stim cycle, and after the trigger shot, she has become rather ill. as you read, her ovaries are very large, and painful. she has gained about 2kg in weight in a couple of days from the fluid retention, and yesterday afternoon this was starting to impact her breathing a little. after her husband got home last night, they contacted the clinic (she had no choice, i was going to do it for her if he didn't!!) who referred her to the after hours GP for pain relief. after that visit, she was admitted to hospital - i got a message at about 3.45 this morning letting me know she'd been admitted and was on the ward.

    it's a couple of hours since i've heard from her, so i'm not sure how she's doing this afternoon, but last update was that she was still in pain, having things pumped into her - and apologising for the way her embies are behaving - even in pain, she's still concerned about how i'm feeling and making sure she doesn't hurt my feelings - she's definitely a gem!

    when i get more info, i'll post in here to let you know how she's travelling. at this stage, it looks to be several days before she comes home - and i think we'd all agree it's better she's in hospital getting treatment than struggling at home through this!

    ETA - melsta - having her embies continuing as they are is very good news!

    I have just spoken to my FS and my situation sounds something like BW's - my Estrogen count is through the roof - 21000 and we discussed cancelling the EPU and high risk of enlarged overies and OHSS. I said we should go for it and hopefully all will be well. She said regardless I will have to freeze everything and wait for a natural cycle for ET.
    Feel like a soldier going into battle!

    TL - I don't know - maybe because it is my first time but I feel OK about it. Petrified, but OK. My FS is so encouraging and if it doesn't work, there is always next year. I have just phoned DP with the news and advised him to get a dragon immediately! He is concerned and confused - just the way I like him!
