    Hi Kelly
    I'm going ok now. I'm so glad I took the time off work. Apart from being able to blubber when I need to (kinda sneaks up when I least expect it), I've spent so much time in my garden. Digging my fingers around in the dirt and transplanting or planting new things does me the world of good.
    Have tried not to spend too much time in here lately - but I keep lurking. I really like to see how everyone is going. From Thu - Sun last week it was very hectic!!!!
    How are you travelling???

    My goodness #6 already!!!

    Well i am offically 1/2 way through my tww and i must say the first week always goes faster than the 2nd for me!!

    Starting to get niggily pains and pains in my bb's but then again this happens every month the week before af is due to arrive.

    Hope you are all doing well.

    Am i the only loner left on the tww or are there others out there pulling their hair out.

    Went to a party on the week end and once again had to endure jibes from other male friends about not having kids. I have explained it nicely once already this time i pretended to ignore it.

    Oh well such is life!!

    Take Care

    Hi everyone. Well I had (yet another) scan this morning and (finally) I have one follicle on the left that is 15.4mm so back on thursday and probable insem friday so Angel could you please alter rollcall and put me in september instead of august thanks!!

    Cazz I know how you feel with the pg symptoms and impending m/c. I had to wait 4 weeks to miscarry and I had symptoms for about 3 of those weeks. I hope it happens as quickly and painlessly as possible for you so you can board the coaster again soon.

    Congrats to Shazz and Blue.

    Amanda & Shez - all updated!

    Have also added BFP notices to our recent graduates - just love doing that part! Cant wait to add it to everyone elses!

    Shez - so glad to hear that folly of yours is being good and growing nice and strong.

    Had my appt today. Doc has agreed that, assuming successful thaws, we are transferring two back. AF due on 6 September, which would make transfer end of Sept.

    Looking forward to not having to have the injections and the stupid OHSS!

    YeeHaa Keen - IMHO your body and mind is so much more ready for that precious cargo when you haven't been stimming - even more so when your body responds so well to the drugs (like you do!). This is just my opinion but I always thought my body and mind were in a much better space when doing the HRT FET than at the ET after stimming. Best of luck hon for this next FET, will be watching your progress!!

    Keen,

    great news! Lucky for you (and me, who is impatient on your behalf) that AF is not that far away. I agree with Amy that with the OHSS, you'll probably find the FET cycle easier on your body, and therefore more conducive to getting pg. Also blasts thaw better so you should have some nice ones to transfer.

    Trish, just went back to read some posts I missed, and am sorry that you've started spotting. Given your circumstances, I guess you have enough to worry about, but know that I'm thinking of you.

    love
    sushee
