    Hi Racheal
    Sorry, they probably will taste horrible if they're like some of the herbal concoctions I've tried :boggle: But...... I don't doubt you'll perservere because it's worth it if it works!!!

    Hi again all!

    Racheal ~ I was herbs from my naturopath for about 4 months. They tasted gross. mine came in liquid form and all I did was add 7ml to a half cup of water and I could hardly get it down and the aftertaste was excruciating. but they helped me a whole lot!!
    I cant imagine having to boil them up.

    Sheree~ I would seriously consider a naturopath. they will work with any medical treatment you have. are you in Vic? I could ask my naturopath for any suggestions on who you could see. She trained under Francesca Naish who wrote The Natural Way to Better Babies. My naturopath is really great and she has a special interest in fertility.
    When I went to see her the first time I was ovulating very late in my cycle and only having a Luteal Phase of 9 days. turns out the late ovulation was the reason for the LP defect. She put me on some stuff(on day 4 of my cycle) and I ovulated on CD14 and had a LP of 14 days.
    Brilliant work I would say as my doctor(first one) said he could not help me with that

    About Vitex do not use this with any treatment like injections(IVF and injectables) or clomid. Vitex will counteract these drugs and will have the opposite effect and stop you from growing follicles or ovulating.

    OHSS I have a friend she went on injectables with IUI the first time she got OHSS but was not pregnant.
    The second time she got OHSS and is now pregnant with quads!
    Shazz I hope you dont have OHSS. but I would be requesting they do check into whats happening with you.

    Today Im feeling tired. I did not even do last nights dishes and as of 5.45pm today they are still sitting in the sink!!! :-s

    Not much else going on with me. Im too scared to try a HPT so I will do one if my Beta on friday comes up posative!!! lol

    Does anyone know how accurate the doctors are when they say AF should arrive in 12 days if you are not pregnant. for me that would be tomorrow???

    What busy boards we have at the moment. now that I am in the swing of posting here!!

    Hi All!
    Phew – been busy in here today. Already page 4!

    Re the bruising after blood tests etc: I got told by my friend (who is on chemo and therefore having lots of tests/injections etc) to drink lots of water before BT so they can find the vein easier. HTH

    Sue – glad to hear that the witch did what she was told and hit the road jack from your place. Hopefully she’s on her way over to see Humph and Tam.

    Trish – how are you? I’m on progynova too. I think it is to build up (before fET) & maintain (after FET) my endometrium. Good on you for your no POAS policy! I have much the same symptoms as you. I thought I was a little bloated but that may be from the tim tams…

    Ness – thanks for the info on chocolate. Will cut down to half a tim tam per day….

    Shaz – I’m with the others – go ask for a BT. Can I ask what clinic you’re with?

    Shez – Sending you lots of *follicle fertiliser dust* so your follies grow big and strong.

    Kelly – yup, waiting is frustrating! Hope it goes quickly for you.

    As for me – I finally rang the nurses today about the pessaries and whether I should be taking them 12hrs apart or not. First rang RWH nurses – they said it doesn’t really matter. but that as I was a pte patient I should be ringing nurses at Moneymasons. As I had another q as well, I rang nurses at Moneymasons and they said yes – 12 hrs apart!! WTF!! Anyway, they said – oh have you made your appt for BT on Friday?? Whaa?? Told them that my paperwork said test was for Monday. She said it was ok to test on Friday, couple of days won’t matter! Well, excited as I am to find out sooner I am worried as I have a 1st birthday party on Saturday. I won’t be much in the mood for partying after a BFN.

    Anyway, :bluestick: for all!!
    Cheers,

    Blue, there's no such thing as eating HALF a Tim Tam. I was so crappy yesterday I ate 6 mint slice bikkies. BAD BAD BAD.

    I take my hat off to you for waiting til Monday if they say you can go Friday. My clinic says I definitely have to wait until Monday groan...
    But, yep, you're right. Kids' birthday parties can be hard enough. On the other hand, you'll probably get a BFP and be over the moon!!!!!

    Gosh lots of potential excitement on here today. Will be refreshing madly for updates the next few days!

    Just wondering what clinics everyone is at (if willing to say) - I am at Melbourne Assisted Coneption Centre, and haven't come across many fellow patients on the net at all. I think this is because they only do GIFT and AIH (I think theyre a catholic hospital based or something) - but my Dr works both there and at Monash IVF.

    Hi Kelly
    Hope you're going ok.
    I'm with IVF Australia (North Shore - Central Coast clinic). I, too, would like to find anyone else out there who is with them?

    Whats your commute like Cazz? I am in Melb west and commute 35-65mins (depending on traffic) each way, to Heidelberg.

    I ahve often wondered if I should have gone with MIVF as they have a clinic closer to home, but went with a Dr recommendation. Hes great too (Dr Talbot), but its so far! I am really not used to such travel, I am still a country girl really!

    Hi everyone
    Can't sleep so thought I'd get up and send happy thoughts and :bdust: dust: out to you all. Drag myself out of bed at 6am when I'm working - bounce out of bed at 5.30 when on hols. ](*,)

    Trish - are you ok? Did you end up starting your PowerPoint pics? I've done a title page...
    Blue - enjoy the other HALF of that tim tam. Hmmmm. Are you going to bring your BT forward to Friday? I've decided 4 x shortbread creams = 1 mint slice, so 2 shortbread creams = no problems.
    Shazz - hope you get through today without too much pain or discomfort. Sleeping 'til tomorrow sounds like a plan to me.
    Racheal - how's your potion going down? You'll be amazed at how well you feel once it kicks in.
    Shez - keep nurturing those follies.
    Kelly - yep, the travelling can be a drag. I hated the travel down to Sydney from the coast before we became civilised and got clinics here.
    Tam & Humphrey - that you're both well and truly bonding with the witch. Keep her to yourself please.

    There are so many of you girls, I've lost track. Good luck to all of you and have a great day.

    Sue
