    Angel ~ please change important dates to EPU 12th September

    Shazz ~ hope it wasn't too windy at the coast and that you had a good time

    Sue ~ I am joining the no AF picket line

    Racheal ~ you'll get the hang of injections soon enough I know that sounds silly :boggle: ironic even

    Blue ~ you can travel on a plane up until 7 months pg after that it's too risky and you probably wouldn't fit in the seat (cause you've got a big belly not a big arse )

    Also, Keen/Angel, can the graduates be summarised at the bottom of table (like you do with EPU roll calls). It would be nice to see their EDDs, and details of the 'winning' cycle!!!! Just a thought.

    So who is beta testing next?

    Hi guys!
    I am doing okay. Still thinking I am not pregnant!!

    Anyway I did no have enough chocolate(1.25kgs) for the cake. I had to go out this morning and get it. so I made it this afternoon and its now cooling in the kitchen. my house smells wonderful its so sucky I cant have any. I even made a small cake out of leftover cake mix!! and its iced and on the bench and it laughs at me every time I go into the kitchen! #-o

    Anyway that is it for me today! I finished my class with my reborn student today and her baby doll looks beautiful! She si so pleased she is coming back next week to start another and when her sisted comes down from QLD to live she will be coming with her and my student also knows some other women who want to make them too. My mum and I are thinking of opening a reborning and teddy bear shop and doing classes on reborning and teddy bear making as well as selling supplies.

    As for the camberwell Market. DH found some records he wanted and I had to try and stay away from the wool guy!! I have so much wool and not enough time to knit it as it is!!
    I really should be knitting my dad a beanie right now!!

    Does anyone go on BCP or provera to give your ovaries a rest until the next stim cycle?

    Cazz - is chocolate really a no-no? I have been eating the odd tim tam and am a bit paranoid now. I have cut out all caffeine though. Thought I can't do without caffeine AND chocolate.
    Glad the cake baking went well. Maybe you and your mum could go to a market and promote your classes? I remember going to a market and there was a lady there with a heap of scrapbooking stuff and she was handing out flyers for her classes. A cheap(ish) way to see how much interest you can drum up!

    Sheree - I had a look at my cycle spreadsheet (yes, I'm a nerd) and before my last EPUs I was on the BCP for about 30 days. The synarel started just before I stopped the BCP. But I thought that was to regulate my cycles than to give my ovaries a rest. Good idea about adding the graduates too.

    Ness - Thanks for the advice. I do have a big butt tho... he he. I was snooping through other forums (yes, I'm a lurker) and I saw a link to an article about flying when pg.

    Cheers,

    Trish, have updated you.

    Sheree, thanks for the great suggestion however it's been decided that a graduates summary would make the already long details list much too long. Plus there is already a very detailed list of graduates at start of the PG After LTTC thread for those interested in checking out who's graduated (fingers crossed that a lot more of you will be added to that list soon!!).

    Well I had my scan and there are plenty of follies there just very small. So it's 3 more days of puregon then a scan on friday. I need just one or two to spring to life!!

    Mods could you please update my important dates to 26th August scan, and the sticky vibes next to my name in rollcall are welcomed but premature!!

    Shez - take care of those follies. Hope you end up with a good number of healthy eggs! :luck:
    Trish, Blue, Shazz, Cazz and any other 2WWers - hope you're all staying sane and looking after yourselves.

    Good luck Shezz, grow follis grow!

    How are the 2ww'ers? Hang in there!

    I have another weeks reprieve on injecting, my hormones were not flatlines enough so I have to keep taking synarel for another week and have another BT to check if I am ready yet. This is a bad thing because it is another week of waiting to inject without being able to just take the plunge (so to speak) and get over the fear!

    I am getting frustrated too, because I have to go for weekly tests and my clinic is a 90minute+ round trip. With a child in tow, it just is a bit taxing. I only moved to Melbourne from the country 6 months ago, so I am still adjusting to not having everything just 5 minutes down the road! It is such a drawn out process, had to wait 2 weeks and 2 BTs to take synarel, now it will be 2 weeks of that at least.. arghh! I just want to get on with it!

    Does anyone else end up with bruises over both arms from blood tests? I feel like a bit of a junkie!

    PS Please add me to the list of September AIH'ers, and change my important date to 29/8 - possibly starting puregon - thanks!

    Hi Kelly - agggghhhhhhh to the delay. I can understand you wanting to just get on with it. Better to have your levels right though!!

    Bruising - yep, big time. Finding veins - they have a terrible time. When I went in for my EPU, the nurse (who was a really friendly, funny girl - just what you need in theatre) couldn't get the anaesthetic line in. The anaesthetist had to do it. Don't panic - it didn't hurt, I just have tiny veins. I had a BLACK bruise the size of a 50 cent piece on the front of my left hand for a week. I had fun explaining that one!!!

    Good luck to all you girls kicking off now.

    Sue
