    Blue I do know exactly how you feel, I was the same you need the closure so you can move on - it seems silly that we have to wait for these things but that is the way of IVF

    Thanks Ness :flower:. How are you doing?

    Cazz - Dr said you might not bleed? That's wierd isnt it? My AF is taking it's sweet time - from the cramping I was having I thought it would have come in full force after I went off the meds. :smt102 all round!!

    Hi Bee - sorry about your BFN. Rubbing puppy feet for lots of eggs and embies for you!

    Hi Anney - wow I didn't know that you had to get approval to advertise. The hoops they make us jump through!! Hope it works out for you.

    Amanda - mental health days are a must!! This process can get fairly stressful so having a day to yourself is important. (In fact, I took half a MHD today!!) Well done to you (and DH) on the first jab!

    Hope you're all doing ok.
    love

    Kelly it wasn't as hopeful as I thought, he could only see 3 follies, this is the highest dose I've been on so even the doc was disappointed with the result, have another scan on friday, he also said he's seen this happen before and 2 days later the girl suddenly had heaps more follies so that it happens to me

    Ness - am hoping like Kelly said you have a bunch of late bloomers there that will show soon. I assume you have already said, but what dosage are ou on this time?

    Anney - you're SO right, I do feel like Im forever waiting for AF to arrive. I guess its because I dont ever get to have a 2ww, cause nothing can happen on its own anymore... How are things with you?

    Cazz - Sorry sweetheart. Hang in there and hope you get some answers.

    Blue - hope you get your 'closure' soon so that you can feel better ready to take the next steps.

    Ali - AF arrived for you yet?? Still hasnt arrived here! But Im really expecting her tomorrow - have become so in tune with my body I can usually tell how many days I will have to wait, etc!

    Hi everyone. Hope you're all well. I wasn't going to post in here tonight - a bit of a growly-face today (don't know why). But, I guess I just can't help myself.
    Blue, how are you today?
    Hi Trish, Spring is the perfect time for snowbubs to thaw...
    Cazz - so sorry. It must be terrible to have this time drag out for you. I hope your bod gets back into gear soon.
    Racheal - are you ok?
    Hi Anney. Yep, I meet with my specialist tomorrow to see what he thinks about the future. Do you mind if I ask - have you had any IVF cycles? If not, has your doctor suggested donor eggs as your only option? I'm 10 days from 43 so very, very curious.....
    Leisa, are you feeling any less anxious? You'll be fine - just try to stay positive.
    Sushee - great to see you popping in.
    Keen, hope things get moving for you soon.
    That's it..... my back-at-work brain is starting to fade.
    To everyone else, hope you're all going ok.
    Love
    Sue

    Sending lots of AF vibes to those who need it - Keen, Cazz, Blue etc.

    Trish - I can't believe you're almost at O again! These FET cycles are great aren't they, time just whizzes by. Why can't stim cycles be a month long??????

    Sue - good luck with your appointment tomorrow. I really hope they give your eggs another shot.

    Ness - lots of follie vibes for you honey.

    Start oogy pessaries tonight. Confession - almost looking forward to it - FREAK!! It just means another step closer to transfer.

    LOL Humphrey - you and your pessaries. Sorry I forgot you.
    for you this cycle.
    Enjoy your pessaries... I understand how you feel though, you just want to get to the 2WW bit - then you go mad during it.
    I still have faith in my eggs. Maybe I'm in denial but I just find it too hard to believe that they've past their use-by date!!

    Humphrey - so true about enjoying being just another step closer to success. I always feel the same about each little bit.

    Sue - I got faith in your eggs too. Im betting they are stronger than you think and of fantastic quality. I really hope you get some positive news at the specialist.

    Im doing as much physical activity as i can stand - trying to bring AF on..... oooh just thought, should have a cup of tea too (that sometimes helps...) Come on witch - leave the others alone, take me, take me!!

    Oh . I so glad I jumped in here. A good bellybelly laugh was just what I needed. Keen, you have such a great way of expressing yourself.
    What about putting on a nice bright white dress or pair of pants? Bound to work.
    Or camp out in the bush for the night where there are no loos. That usually works too. I have a story which might offend some - I hope not. We went camping in the middle of woop-woop once, no loos, showers anything. The loo was a shovel way in the middle of the bush. I wasn't real good with the shovel. It happened to be that time of the month for me. Instead of burying a tampon one day (and this is the b-a-d bit) I decided to throw it as far as I could into the middle of the bush. Of course, I threw it too high and it got stuck on a branch up a tree. Then a couple of bushwalkers came along. Groan, I'm embarrassed just thinking about that.
    Oops, too long again.
    Hope she gets there soon.
    Sue
