    HI ladies well it happened again i wrote a long post and then ...................gone ..............so here goes again

    firstly sorry for being a bit of a yo yo and popping in and out of here but some days its hard to keep up and im TRYING to rest.lol

    Boo - Fantastic news that you are feeling like you are getting somewhere. and its nice to hear that your Doc will fo0llow through with you to be your FS(if thats what you want?) I would also be looking into IUI if that was a choice for us. if it means less drugs or less intervention then id give it a go. let me know how you get on as i know nothing about it, sorry

    DB - im so sorry to hear that AF arrived. I must say i felt like my ovaries had taken a beating after my last PU too, so glad ot was canciled. Taking herbs is great and this will help you with all your worries. I wish i could come and give you a hug. Im here if you want to talk

    Sushee - wow can i come i wont take up too much room and ive be very quiet. are the family going with you? DH and i said we must stay longer in Singapore next time we fly to see family in UK, although im hoping to take twins with us.lol Have a fab time

    2Mums - another WOW i cant believe how youve gone from next year to having IUI NOW. Im so excited for you and praying that your Christmas bub will be anounced for you xx

    Jane - thank you so much for your words now get back to keeping my seat warm in the pg thread. i hope you are feeling well and that MS is mot treating you too badly although its a reasuring sign

    DJTTC - do what makes you feel better go with your gut feeling - my FS told me it is better to do IVF straight after surgery but i guess it depends what your having done mine was my tubes tied. good luck hun.

    Nic - what are you up too?

    Macca - are you in the TWW? How are you doing ?

    Well ladies that brings it to me as im off to work as soon as im done

    As you know we had Tf on Monday - one 5 cell and one 3 cell. *TMI* yesterday at work i noticed a little pink tinge on my pad and im haveing a few bits of crinone leak out. so last night i started to use the pessaries, although i still have 6 crinone left but i think the pessaries are a stronger dose.

    Dont really know how to feel at the mo ive usually got sore bb by now but nothing and im feeling preety good - some moments i even forget that ive had a TF.lol

    Also what do people tink about testing b4 BT?dont know wether to or not did last time got BFP but BT said it wasnt viable so very confused this time

    Have a great day everyone and i hope to see you all outa here by Christmas.

    Hi Girls - I too just lost my post half way thru

    Anyway...

    Loula - Good luck in the 2ww, and thanks for the hugs.

    Nic & Boo - My accupuncturist/harbalist guy is David McLeod of Healthwise in Wickham Tce. Didnt use him last time (I was too busy) and only got 14 eggs, time b4 that when I did use him I got 20 eggs at EPU. I am hoping for more eggs but more importnatly better quality, as I never have any to freeze.
    :mad: If I did I couldhave had a FET b4 Christmas. have you guys had any quality issues and do you think natural remedies has helped?

    Hi to everyone else - hope you are all well.

    Hi ladies,

    Sushee - Have a great holiday.

    Boo - I'm so happy that you are going to be taking the next step, I actually phoned my specialist & have appointment on 4th January so not really that long to go (not with the way the months have been flying by).
    He suggested last time that we could either try fertility drugs, washing the sperm & then putting it back in (is this IUI?) or IVF.
    So I think I should start doing some research before we go.

    I went to my hairdresser today & she told me she was pg, & she started going on & on about how they didn't think it would happen straight away but the first month it did.
    Here I was really happy for her but at the same time I wanted to ball my eyes out, but it's not her fault she doesn't know I have been ttc for ages.

    But I am cheering up though because tomorrow night we are off to the Robbie Williams concert, I am extremely excited about it.

    hope all are well! Thank u for your support and kind words, it made the last few days a lot easier to deal with, thank you.

    Just a short update on me; yesterday was EPU and I think I was more concern about the eggs that would be collected, I didn't really think about how I would feel . Well on a good note 16 mature eggs where harvested, and should find out today how many of those have been fertilised , however my tummy is so tender and I have been told to keep an eye out for OHSS, as I am at risk. How long does this feeling last for? I was thinking before hand that I would be back at work today, but really I can't get off the couch, but because I am drinking so much water (they said to drink 2-4lts a day for 3 weeks) I am up and down to the loo .

    Anyway I am sure this feeling will pass, as I start Gel on Sunday and Transfer will be Tuesday, so then I will be able to join others in the 2ww period.

    Enough complaining from me, I knew I would never make a good patient.

    Anyway n for you all

    Loula - thats why i was leaning towards IUI but as the Dr has told us we have a better chance of success with IVF DH has kind of already got he's mind set on that. I don't really know too much about it either, havent had much time to do any research. How are you feeling? Sorry i can't help with your question but i do have my fingers crossed that it's a good sign!

    Dream bub - I'm only on my second month of trying acupuncture, but i've already noticed a big improvement in the way my cycle works. Fingers crossed you'll be able to get in another FET before xmas comes.

    Jo - Enjoy the Robbie Williams concert, it should be fantastic! What you said about washing the sperm is pretty much how my Dr explained the IUI to me. Your right - with xmas etc in between the 4th Jan will be here before you know it.

    Macca - Hope your tummy starts to feel better soon. Probably a stupid question but what does OHSS stand for? Hope everything goes well for you on Tuesday.

    Well the lady from the FS clinic just called me and they've had a cancellation, they can now fit us in on 11th December - that's only a week and a bit away!

    Hi all,

    Macca - hope you're feeling better soon.

    Loula - from what I have read the pimples you are seeing on your bb are a good sign for pg, apparently we always have a few but when pg you develop a lot more & bigger.
    Fingers crossed for you.

    Boo - yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeee for the cancellation, not long to wait now.

    Have a good weekend, Jo

    Hi again and it is great to here others have felt as I am right now! I feel if you put a pin in me I would pop.

    Boo - I don't beleive in any silly questions, and I had no idea what OHSS was before all this OHSS is Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) they say it is because one develops many eggs and/or blood test before the EPU measures your hormones as high one may develop OHSS.

    The clinic called this moring to let me know that we have 10 fertilised eggs. 4 didn't fertilise and 3 not muture enough. Now waiting to see how many make it to day 5, as the clinic has said that we will still loose a few in the next few days , but at the moment numbers are on our side, whcih we are really happy about.

    Thanks again and I must admit that my DH is waiting on me hand and foot, which I am enjoying. The next 5 days will be trying and it is harder when all you are doing is laying on the couch and resting, my mind just never turns off. Thanks again

    DJTTC - I am off to Robbie Wiliams on the 13th & cant wait - somthing (Someone to take my mind of TTC. HOpe you had a great night. Also I did IUI for a year with no luck and was so keen to start IVF it wasnt funny. If you can afford the IVF treatment I would go for it, as it seems like fasttracking - but thats just me! Reserach weel and do what makes you most happy.:P

    Loula - Hopefully you are experiencing good signs. Fingers crossed for you. Dont test b4 day 10 as my doc informs me any sooner would be too soon and may show a false negative.

    Macca -good luck with fertilisation and ur TF next week. I love blasties! Hoping you get some healthy ones. rest up and relax. Water, water water!

    Boo - Love to hear a progress report on the benefits of your accupuncture and herbal remedies......

    Have a good weekend girls.

    Hi all,

    Macca - Enjoy dh looking after you & well done on the 10 fertilised eggs!

    Loula - I have my fingers crossed for you.

    Dream bub - thanks for the advice on IVF & IUI, I think dr will probably say IUI as it's less invasive.

    OH MY GOD Robbie Williams was unbelievable!!!!!!!!
    It was one of the best nights of my life, he is just awesome.
    I honestly wish I could go again, we had standing so we were only a couple of metres from him, just thinking about it again gives me goosebumps.

    I am not normally a starstruck kind of person who screams but when he came out it was unreal & yes I think I did scream.
    You will have an absolute ball.

    Hello Everyone

    Well it has been a while since I have been in and checked on everyones progress, needed to rest my very poor attitude and get my headspace right !

    What a lot of changes since September and so many BFP's, really has cleared this out alot, in a very good way.

    Welcome to all the new people, and good luck with your journies.

    Loula - I can so relate with you at the moment, I dont think the TWW every gets any easier.

    I hope everyone is doing well and gets some nice presents from Santa !!!!

    What a coincidence, I logged on today to see if I can find out some info on crinone and Megans first post had this in it.... how lucky.

    I have just undergone my second round of IVF, a flare cycle with the hope of getting better eggs, We got 17 eggs with 12 fertilising, which I thought was wondrful but unfortunately we only had three to freeze, I know I should be happy with this but I was just disappointed with the outcome. Especially considering that we dont appear to have a very good success rate when they thaw out.

    I am currently in the TWW with having a transfer Thursday week ago. Just a question though, Af was due last Saturday and I had some bleeding on Sat and sunday but it appears to have stopped would this be because of the crinone ? Normally when AF is due she turns up with a vengenance, irrelevant of crinone or not.

    I am due to have my BT on Thursday and am too scared to do a HPT or get my hopes up. But not sure what to think.

    Thanks for your help and it is good to be back and share this ride

    Take care and best wishes to everyone.

    Hi All,

    Hope everyone is well and that those of you in the 2ww are staying as sane as possible.

    Loula - Hope you are coping, hang in there. I know how it feels & I am sending you many positive thoughts.

    DJTTC - Cant wait for Robbie Williams, something to think about other than TTC for a week anyway. Helps the wait till January pass more quickly.

    Sari - A little beleding just after your TF could be the implantation - I am not an expert but have read that implantation can cause slight bleed & the timing is spot on. So it may be a good sign.

    Just a quick hi from me.

    Sari - Goodluck with your BT on Thursday. Will you get results the same day?

    Loula - Fingers crossed for a BFP!

    Boo - YAY for the cancellation! Less than a week to go, hope all goes well.

    BIG Hello to everyone else, sorry for my lack of personals.
    My temp is still high, hoping that it doesn't drop. Shopping day tomorrow and am thinking if I should buy a HPT or not? I want too, but I don't want to buy one, get all excited and then have AF show. Suppose I will just see if one ends up in the trolley tomorrow or not LOL.

    Hi all hope you are well. Baby dust and sticky vibes to you all

    Thank you for you kind words and support after my EPU, doing much better now and I am off the couch. A little cramping at times but I guess that can be expected.

    Well finally in the 2ww as of today. Had my ET this morning and seems a lot of ladies are trying to get in for christmas as well so the clinic is very busy. We only put 1 embrio back, I asked for two but was told due to some law and my age they are not allowed to transfer two, so one went back in this morning and we got our first pic, so cute. We got 17 eggs from EPU and 10 of those made it to stage 1, then on day 3, 6 made it to stage 2 with the other 4 a day or two behind. Today we are not sure how many made it through but it looks like the best of the bunch was returned and maybe we might have 3 to freeze, but they are giving them an extra day for further growth,so they will confirmed on on there staus on Thursday. I hope they can freeze some as I am not in a hurry to go through another EPU but I guess if I had to I would just do it. Now I ma in the scared mode, the Dr told me if all goes well we are 2 weeks, 5 days PG today and PG test will be on the 16th, maybe santa will bring an early christmas gift? I am taking it easy and trying not to lift a finger, need to occupy my mind with something else otherwise I will be counting each day. I am happy to say to my family and friends that I really do have my babies first pic
