    Megan and Kim, I'm sorry to hear how many things seemed to go wrong for you this time. You definitely deserve some answers, I think you should certainly keep asking questions until you get them!

    yay Last day of the pill for me today, just when i thought this cycle was getting alittle stagnant and thought i was never going to move onto the next step (although its only been a mth!)

    I hope everyone else is doing well and hoping the Oct is the month for us all and November, December, Jan, Feb, March........................................ got to cover all our bases.

    Have a great day

    Megan,

    I'm glad you're being proactive about this. A lot of the time, we are treated like we don't have a brain in our heads, and decisions are made for us where a more natural approach may have been the better solution. You go get em, girl!

    Hey all

    Thought I'd update where I'm at.

    Went to Gyn. last week...disappointed with his manner but at least he seems to be doing some tests with me (rather than the last couple who have said "I'm fine!")...it's been about 33 months of TTC so I'm not feeling like everything is so fine...

    Anyway...just waiting for AF to arrive...thought I might be pregnant a few days ago...had lots of early signs including spotting, cramping. metallic taste, high temps, headaches...but now my temperature is dropping pretty rapidly so it's not looking good...it's a cruel game, hey?

    Once AF arrives, I have about 10 tests to do over the next month...8 blood tests and a few ultrasounds...fun, fun, fun!!! But hopefully it will give us some more information...

    The Dr. said the next thing after the testing will be medication (probably Clomid) and then we'll see what happens...

    hi girls,

    Monnie i hope af doesn't show but hopefully you will get some answers if she does.

    Cazzoom I remember you from when I first joined BB welcome back luv

    Keen you are the best at making someone feel good about jabbing themselves!

    Well went to the nurse today and I chickened out and she had to do the first injection for me. DH will have to do the rest as I just cannot do it!

    I am seeing Dr Gronow and while he is a little vague with all the details the nurses are great!! And I must say I do not know where I would be without this web site to keep me up to date with it all. Yayyyy for belly belly!

    Oh well off to the gym for a 45min torture spin class!

    Take care

    zap, good idea getting DH to do the jabbing! I don't think I will be able to do it either! I should start mine next week sometime. I imagine the 45 minute spin class is much worse than the injection though! lol

    Welcome back Caz! Good luck with this cycle and this dreaded TWW!

    Lou, IKWYM about feeliing like this cycle wasn't getting anywhere! Things seem to be on the move now though! How is synarel treating you?

    Well, I've been on synarel for a week now and feeling pretty good. I had heard a few horror stories about it and thankfully I've been ok. DH is relieved I think after my mood swings when I started the pill! I've got my BT this morning and then I guess I find out the next step when I get my results this afternon. I think I would be starting my injections early next week sometime.

    Jane how are you going?

    Af showed her less than welcome face this morning...

    Ahhhhh! So didn't want her around...especially this month.

    My SIL is due in 1 week. It's been hard for the family as everyone has felt pretty torn between being excited for them and also being very aware of what our situation is...We've been trying for nearly three years whilst they started only a year ago and whammo!!!

    I was hoping that a pregnancy would have helped everyone totally enjoy the new arrival...(not that I would have announced it to my SIL just yet, that would have been bad form)!!!

    Oh well!

    Like you say Zap, hopefully the tests will give us some answers...

    I just want to say thankyou to everyone for sharing your stories...as much as I don't want anyone to experience fertility problems, it's nice to know that you're not on your own.

    All the best for upcoming procedures...

    Welcome back monnie, i hope your stay is short and i know what you mean about sil!!mines lovely but there are some days!!

    Megan are you off the pill yet? i stoped on Monday and have been bleeding ever since and its quite heavy (tmi?) I am still sniffing though.

    Jane how are you going with things?havent heard from you i hope you are not feeling like a pin cushon!!

    Keen thank you for putting me onto the vent forum, now that im there ive not got much to say but im sure i will when i start jabbing! How are things with you? been back for results, tell me if im being nosie but just wanting to know your feeling ok

    Megan and kim, whats the update. i am sending you all my strength to take these people on and get answers i wish you all the best

    Zap i admire you i dont know how you have the energy to do all this treatment then top that off with a power spin. you go girlfriend.

    cazzoom, good luck with your cycle i dont really know what injections you are having after you tf would like to know if you want to share? Im always interested in what is involved with other peoples cycles. just tell me to keep my nose out if you want.

    Leis - i am so excited for your trip its been ages since ive been home and visited every one am planning to go next year as mum came three times this year and its my turn, wanting dh to come to but getting time off work and having the house empty is a little hard.

    Well me ....
    Had a job interview today i always get so nervous which is crasy as i love my job and know i can do it really well (childcare) but have gone for a 2nd in charge position at the same centre. will find out next week if yes. and if it is yes then i have to have another interview with HS coordinator . she is also lovely but really knows her stuff and that makes me feel even more nervous!

    anyway ... bleeding alittle since stoping the pill but have a scan on monday to know whether to start jabbing on Tuesday or not. I hope i can as Gyn is going away and if my dates are all on time she can squeese in a tf b4 she goe. Sounds really odd!!

    Hi everyone

    Sorry I have had a headache for the last few days so I haven't felt like sitting at the pc at night. I had my down reg scan this morning and all is looking good so I start jabbing tomorrow. Other than that not much news here, my headaches have been shocking, I am still a bit dodgy tonight but I went to see the chiropractor tonight for an adjustment so hopefully will feel better soon.


    Rachael - I am getting DH to do my jabs as well, we have been having much discussion on where exactly in the rear to do it, even though they have explained it twice LOL I am sure we will sort it out.

    Lou and Megan - sounds like you guys are still not far behind me, glad to hear things are going well

    Big Hi to everyone else, sorry I still have a bit of a headache and need to do uni work so I will do some more personals later.

    Cheers

    Jane

    Oh jane i must check with clinic i have always done my jabbing on my tummy!

    Sorry i know its TMI

    thanks

    Lou - yep I did have bleeding for a few days. When we discussed the jabs they suggested the stomach if I do my own or the bottom if DH does it for me. I think that would be easier for him too without me watching him, out of sight out of mind I think.

    Ps nah not TMI, I don't mind talking about stuff like that in here, we are all in the same boat I figure

    Lou, I finished the pill on Saturday and have had no bleeding at all. I keep feeling like AF will arrive at any minute and it hasn't happened yet.
    I had my Bt test today after a week on synarel and everything is going well so they have told me to start injections on Friday. It's moving really quickly now so I'm getting nervous.
    Then I have another BT and scan next Friday to decide when EPU will be.
    Jane I know the feeling re the headache. I have had one all week and today was awful. I ended up leaving work a couple of hours early because I just couldn't cope. The computer and stuffiness of the office (they can't get the a/c sorted out!) wasn't agreeing with me. I've had a bit of a sleep and it has eased. My nurse said the headaches should calm down once I start injections. I hope so.

    Oh and Lou, good luck with the job, hope you get good news next week!!

    More bad news from the specialist today - its just slowly slipping further and further... not much I can do.. is one of those things that is taking its time to really sink in I think...

    WELL, there better be a serious number of more graduates this month - I complained last month and we ended up with 4 leaving, Ali, Ally & Allie and also Jade... so I think if we can manage that each month for a while we should empty the rest of you ladies outta here in no time...

    Oh Keen, I'm so sorry you're having to go through all of this right now. I really hope that all is not lost and there is a way you can have your much wanted bub in the near future.
    I agree, a good number of graduates this month is what the Dr ordered. I think last month, it certainly helped if your name was Ally though!! lol
    There are so many of us on the go right now that there ought to be some good news in this thread over the next month!
