    Zap - It sounds like one of the satalite clinics. I think it is part of MIVF? Or could be part of Monash as well. All I know that there is clinics ie/ Sunshine, Epping, Ringwood and a few other places that might be closer to some peoples homes rather than travelling in to the city. However they only operate on certain days, for instances I think Epping was only open 2 or 3 days a week. Give them a bell and ask them.

    Blue, I was told to do mine 12 hours apart and did but alas wasnt successful, so perhaps being closer like Sush did is a better way to go???

    Sorry I havent been around so much lately ladies but no access to internet at work anymore has made things exceptionally difficult... will hopefully have some good news tomorrow as a good friend of mine is having her beta and I hope so desperately that she is successful - will make my failure feel like was for a reason.....(IYKWIM?)

    I'm here, just hiding upstairs from MIL (she can't climb stairs ). Am busy planning any kind of appointment I can get myself booked into (to get out of the house) - haircut, pap smear (yes I'm that desperate) etc.

    I have my appoint with SIVF nurses next Wed finally. I'm assuming I can start my FET this cycle since AF should show Sunday. My temps have dropped nicely so she can't be far off (it's nice to actually look forward to a visit from witchy-poo). Hope she turns up for you too Tam. I hope she STAYS AWAY from the rest of you lot though. Next week is going to be veeeery interesting indeed - I've been dutifully rubbing my stone every night.

    I wonder how long I can hide up here without appearing rude.......

    Kelly – Good luck on Monday with your test. Those 2am synarel snorts must be a pain!

    Keen – for your friend’s test tomorrow!!

    Thanks Keen and Sushee for your advice on the pessaries. I should call the nurses to confirm but it’s hard at work (very hard to have a private conversation) and by the time I get home it’s too late. Will try tomorrow.

    Zap – sorry, am not aware of a fertility clinic in Sunshine. As Joja said, it might be a satellite clinic. Maybe you could google the clinic?

    Shaz – you sound like you’ve got a real step-monster! That’s a little overboard to scratch the eyes out of photos?

    Cazz – I have those same thoughts. I don’t really “feel” anything, no different to normal. I keep looking for signs - even asked DH if he thought my bb are getting bigger… stupid move – he wanted to measure… Hang in there sweetie. I’m with Trish re the party. Perhaps have a back up plan if it gets too much for you? And maybe stick by those family members who you trust and they might be able to fend off some of the nosy insensitive questions? I’m in a similar sort of dilemma about a friend’s son’s 1st birthday party, though luckily it is before the bt.

    Hi Trish!!! Yes, it is a bit quiet in here… I thought maybe everyone else is out having a life?? Too cold in Melb tonight… brrrr.

    Humphrey – LOL to hiding upstairs!!! Ahh, maybe you could make an appointment for a pedicure and a facial? Hmmm have you had your tax done yet? Hows it going with MIL? I’ll rub my hope-she-doesn’t-get-on-your-nerves-too-much stone for you!!

    Hi to anyone I’ve rudely missed.

    Take care, cheers

    Kelly, someone else who is much more on the ball than me has been in to update you. My lord there sure are efficient moderators on this site - arent there

    Trish & Blue, my friend unfortunately didnt get the good news I was so desperately hoping for for her. Am giving them some time to work through things and will then find out what she is up to next...

    Bet this 2ww is REALLLY dragging out for those of you stuck in its midst!

    Cazz, hang in there!!! Where are you at in your cycle?
    I can't even begin to imagine how you have coped with 5 losses of the worst kind. Unfortunately, previous 2WW experience doesn't make it any easier. Your craziness is definitely understandable.
    2 things are helping me stay sane:
    My garden, seeing those seeds sprout is a great feeling.
    The other is mint slice bikkies!
    Roll on motherhood.....

    Hi all,

    Hope you're having a great weekend.

    Cazz - oh you poor pet!! Can you take yourself shopping? Or go have a pedicure/manicure/hair cut/massage/something nice? Catch up on some Zzzs?? I'm a bit up and down. am considering the dreaded POAS so when it comes up negative I can deal and move on. (not that I'm recommending that to anyone as I know their evil...)

    Hi Sue, I had my transfer on the same day and will be having the BT on the same day too. Wow, 15 years is a long time. Fingers crossed for a good result for you!! (only 9 days to go and counting!)

    Shaz - I can undertand the need to go AWOL. Hope you can find that happy place. Will keep fingers crossed for you, let us know how you get on (yes, bring on the BFP!!)

    How are you travelling today Trish?

    :bluestick: :bluestick:

    thanks ladies.
    Unfortunatley the IVF ate up all my money............ #-o so not shopping trips or the like. DH is out today so I am just about to sit a watch a movie.

    I love mint slice bikkies. I am steering clear of the chocolate though cos chocolate is a miscarriage food!!! not willing to risk it!!

    I am 8 days past transfer. blood test next friday!!!

    It feels like its going so slowly. I wish I could sleep through it!!

    I, for a change am not going to POAS the last 4 times I got BFP's on sticks I miscarried!!! gonna wait till after my Blood BFP!!!

    question.......If this does not work I am supposed to go strait into another cycle. just to clarify....will that include a complete down cycle on the pill? I only ended up with the one emby so there will be no frozen cycle for us.

    meanwhile off to go continue to go stark raving mad!!
