    Wow, so much for me to catch up on in here! will try my best

    Racheal - hoping you'll be announcing a BFP in the next couple of weeks.

    Jane - YAY for 7! Goodluck with your transfer tomorrow, will be thinking of you.

    Megan - Will also be thinking of you tomorrow with your pick up. Great to hear that you feel good about telling your mum. I have been thinking of telling my mum that we will be hopefully seeing a FS soon, just don't want her fussing etc..

    Loula - Great that your DH's meds won't have any affect on this cycle. Lotsa hugs for you.

    BIG hello to everyone else. AF has left...finally, so let the BDing begin!

    Racheal, another trigger? Lucky you!! Let's hope it does the trick. As for if it helps thicken your lining, I'm not really sure? Hopefully someone else will be able to tell you the answer to that one!

    Lou, sounds like you're going well...8-10 eggs would be great. How are you feeling? Glad to hear that DH's meds should be ok.

    Jane, good luck for transfer tomorrow!! Here's hoping for a big fert rate.

    DH has just served me dinner so I better go....thanks for all of the well wishes for tomorrow! I'm a little nervous already. :eek:

    Hi ladies,
    Wow it's all happening in here!!!

    Megan & Jane I am so glad that you guys are doing this together & can talk about it together.
    I'm not up with all the lingo yet but am trying.

    Zap - what is IUI - hope I don't sound silly not knowing that?

    Good luck to all you girls this month, you can't say we're not trying eh?

    I am feeling better from the endo scrap out (laparoscopy) still getting extremely tired though.
    My Dr has said to give it 3-6 months of unaided trying first, if we are not pg we are to go back to him & either go some fertility drugs or do the washing the swimmers & giving them a shortcut to the egg trick or of course ivf.
    I have a feeling I will be back in 3 months not 6 that is of course unless we strike it lucky.

    Praying for all of us.
    Jo

    Yeouchies at all the trigger needles bouncing off bottoms and things :eek:
    Thankfully neither DH or I had to do mine - I just fronted up at the hospital at the nurse-in-charge did it for me. It's way different that the puregon pen, so I'm not sure if I could have done it myself.

    Jo - IUI is intra-uterine insemination. It's what you talked about later in your post, where the swimmers are spun and washed, and then inserted directly into your uterus via a catheter which goes through your cervix (don't need an anaesthetic or anything!). Personally, I'm a big fan of it, since it worked for us when IVF didn't oh ... and it's way cheaper lol.

    Hi everyone

    Well I am officially in the TWW.

    Out of the 7 eggs, 6 fertilised which was a great effort I thought. Dr thinks we should get 3 to 5 that are good enough to freeze, they are going to watch them for the rest of the day but at the moment some of them are still 2 cells. The one that was transferred was 4 cells, actually it had split again by the time they put it on the screen which was fascinating and it was grade 2 so the dr was happy with that.

    He was a bit disappointed that we only got 7 eggs but said our fertilisation rate was fantastic. He said if I need to go to full stim again they will modify the drugs a bit and take me a little longer to try and get more eggs but fingers crossed we might get a good result from this stim cycle. We find out on Friday how many will be frozen. So now we wait.

    So now we wait, I am hoping that the next 2 weeks will fly by, my sister is away at the moment who I constantly chat to on the phone, and yep you guessed it, is away for about 2 weeks, not that she knows what we are going through as I haven't told them the particulars, but she always has something happening to keep me amused.

    Now I better go and do this assignment, which I have left until the last minute and have a presentation on tomorrow night at uni. IVF and uni is not the best combination, especially for a serial procrastinator like me.

    Will do some personals after I get some work done.

    Jane, congrats on the transfer of that embryo and I hope he or she decides to stick and go all the way!

    The first cycle can sometimes be difficult because everything is such an unknown quantity. One of the positive things is that they can find out how your body responds to the drugs and then modify or tweak the dose or treatment schedule a bit next time if necessary. Fingers crossed that this won't be a consideration of course.

    Oh I'm with you on the procrastination. I have a small pile of rubble in every room at the moment and all I want to do is eat and surf the net. Good luck with your assignment!

    Megan I hope that OPU went well. Wishing for great results for you!

    Hi to all the other lovely ladies.

    Jane, 6 out of 7 is fantastic! It's great that you will have a few to freeze, that's the best possible outcome.
    I can't believe how good I am feeling after EPU this morning. They had a bit of difficulty because my left ovary was sitting above my uterus (they knew this after the last scan as she had to scan that ovary abdominally as it was too high up). The dr told me it was hard work but they managed to get 6 eggs. I'm happy with this for my first cycle. i ring tomorrow for fertilisation results and time for ET if everything is going well. That general anaesthetic was great! lol I looked at the clock at 10.10 and then next thing I knew it was 10.45 and it was over!
    Feeling a bit sleepy now and just some mild cramping (AF pains are much worse). DH is looking after me though and I might go and have a bit of a nap!
    Thanks for the well wishes everyone.....I will be back tomorrow with my results.

    Thanks Megan and Kim, you are right about waiting on fertilisation results, this whole process is just a series of little hurdles isn't it.

    Jane & Megan - my fingers are tightly crossed for both of you!

    Zap - how are you feeling?

    Cherie - love your baby bump!

    Jo - glad to hear your feeling better. Hopefully the lap is enough to help you guys get that BFP

    Nic - Goodluck this month

    Hi to everyone i missed, having trouble keeping up with you all! I took your advice and I have made an appointment with my gyno for 28th Nov - it will be here before we know it. What happens from there? Will he refer us to a fertility specialists? (we've already had all the tests done)

    How exciting....spoke to my nurse a little while ago and all 6 eggs fertilised! Couldn't have asked for a better result. Transfer is scheduled for Saturday morning, so lets just hope they all continue to thrive. Would love 5 to freeze.
    Jane, like 7 is your lucky number I am hoping 6 is mine! We were married on 6/6 so I hope it's a sign!!
    Feeling quite sore today, more than yesterday. Nurse said she is not surprised as my hormone levels were very high and it's probably best that I have tomorrow off to rest as well, which I already am....so back to work Monday for me.
    Jane, are you on the Crinone gel during the TWW as well??
