    Good evening to everyone, though it's probably tomorrow for most of you by now (2 hrs ahead of me)
    Thanks for the well wishing thawing vibes, just keep them going for an extra day, my ET has changed to Monday morning. A bit of pain because it doesn't quite fit in, but as long as it's a sticker I won't complain.

    Humphrey thinking of you tomorrow, when do you find out about the thaw? I never thought to ask my clinic.

    Shez, that first week seemed to go fast, hopefully the second does too.

    Cazz big hug for you.

    Blue, glad it's moving on for you. Not sure if I could do acupuncture but hope it works for you



    Kelly best of luck for Monday & Tuesday.

    Ali & Anney, hope AF is here
    Hope everyone is well, & things running smoothly, or at least part smoothly
    Take care

    Good morning girls

    Told myself no BB today unless I get my assignment done... #-o I'm so slack!

    Sue - Yup, I think a tree loaded with feminine hygeine products outside parliament house should draw lots of attention to our plight!! Hmmm not sure how long it takes for tampons to break down? Oh LOL - TMI warning - this story might be a bit yuk... a few months back our drain pipe got blocked - lots of yukky mess in the back yard. Anyhoo - we call a plumber who sticks down this big long arm thing that supposedly cleans out the pipes. Apparently we had tree roots growing in the pipes. When he brings the big mechanical arm thing back out of the pipe, ewww guess what is attached to the end??? A tampon, eww gross.. I was so embarrassed!!
    I really dont know how the accupunture affects things. She said she works on PCO, which is caused by "dampness". So I'm taking the herbal stuff which is supposed to dry me out. The accupuncture was supposedly to work on my spleen and kidney and general circulation I think. I must say I'm really skeptical, but I'l give it a couple of weeks and see how I go. Which reminds me, I should go put the kettle on for my vomit tea.
    Tam - hmm spew about changing your ET. will rub puppy feet for Monday for you.
    I had better get off now and do my assignment. If anyone sees me on here feel free to yell at me and tell me to pull my finger out!!
    cheers

    Waiting, waiting.....
    Surely the clinic would have called by now if it was cancelled wouldn't they? It's almost 11am - don't want to get too eggcited yet, but.........

    Transplant some beautiful seedlings for me Sue at 1.30pm and throw in some sticky fertilizer too! I shall repay you tenfold by rubbing my south american fertility stone when you need it.

    Thanks to everyone else for your [-o<

    Yay, I saw that name and hoped it was you making a change.
    Now, get back to your assignment. A break now and then is good though

    I just upped my dose of puregon the last 2 nights and still taking synarel - I am having some spotting today. Is this normal? Will it affect my lining? My notes say you may or may not have a period at the stage of starting injections, maybe its just that the 75iu did so little and now the 150 is having an affect its just late? Help!!

    Stay calm Kelly. Easier said than done.
    I'm not real good with the technical stuff. Have you been on Synarel for 5 weeks? Groan, my nose almost went on strike after 4 and a half.
    If you're really concerned, call your clinic. That's why they're there.
    for Tuesday. Hopefully, the upped dose is bumping things along for you and the spotting is just a good side-effect?
    Sue :luck:

    Thanks Sue, you're a gem. I am hoping the same. I have been on synarel for 4 weeks, I had to wait an extra week before I could start it! The headaches are pretty unpleasant, I am very over the sniffing!
    I tried to call the clinic, theyre not open on a weekend (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) - not real impressed with that, didn't even know! Just concerned I'll get a fully fledged period and then be left with follicles - but no lining

    BlueSky, if you are reading this it means you aren't doing your assignment so get back to work!!! I'm supposed to be writing one up too but I can't be bothered. Might go and make some chockie muffins instead...

    As for the herbal...it certainly did something to me!! I was seeing a homeopath, an acupuncturist and taking chinese herbs. Before IVF I don't O and hadn't had AF for two years so the idea of herbal was to get everything kick started. The problem was I started this just after I started all the IVF stuff. The results were amazing and noticeable right away but the problem was it was too unpredictable and as my IVF Dr was trying to get the mix right we decided to stop doing it. If I had any chance of conceiving naturally I would do herbs again, but I suppose I'd try anything if it was going to help. Cooking the chinese herbs made me gag! They were revolting - I had to skull while holding my nose then have an oj chaser to get rid of the taste. You wouldn't think herbs would have such an instantaneous and profound effect but when I started taking the second lot of herbs the very first day I started getting uncontollable blood noses which would last 30 mins or more every day. I couldn't work out what was causing them so I rang the herbalist to see if she knew and she said she had "tweaked" the herbs and obviously the mix was too "hot" for me. I found acupuncture as relaxing as having a massage. Anyway, enough garble from me...where are those muffin tins...

    No, no, no, that won't happen.
    Do they have an after hours number in their handbook? If they have, ring it. They may not consider it an emergency but, hey, you're paying them enough.
    Then, go and put your feet up until your scan on Monday.
    Love
    Sue :luck:

    LOL Bee - thanks for the reminder. I'll start it in a minute... promise!
    Mmmm chockie muffins... urgglleee (insert image of homer simpson drooling here...) Thanks for the info on accupuncture etc. I think I'll take the tea for a while, see what happens!! (but if I start growing horns or webbed feet I wont be happy...). LOL - I had to stop myself from saying, "bubble bubble, toil and trouble..." when she was mixing up my herbs. Dont think she would have appreciated the inference to being a witch!!

    Kelly - I agree with Sue, go ring the after hours/emergency number. Take it easy pet and try not to worry! (yup, easier said than done)

    Okay.. I WILL now get off the internet and get into my assignment. Or maybe I can do a little more "research"...

    Oooh Humphrey, nearly time for your transfer - puppies, come here - I need to rub your footsies!!

    love

    Hi Ann
    I'm a newbie but an oldy at TTC. I'm 42, tried for 12 years with ex unsuccessfully. Now 4 years post divorce, I'm flying solo with donor sperm. Just had an unsuccessful ICSI and planning another in October (cycle that is, not the unsuccessful part)...
    Good luck next week.

    Yay! I'm back. Frosty made it with a 85% thaw (needs to be over 75%). Am a little bruised and sore as the Doc had some trouble getting it past my cervix(I don't remember it being so hard last time). So I should be lying down resting but just wanted to pop in to thank everyone for their positive vibes - it worked a treat. I'm grateful just to get this far.

    I shall send all the leftover thawing vibes to Tam (but shall leave some for you Trish).

    Have a muffin for me Bee

    Bluesky - back to work!! (love the new name!)



    My spotting seems to have stopped, theres a very faint tinge but its not like it was earlier. Fingers so crossed theyre almost breaking... I hate not understanding the WHY for things (so you can imagine how I feel about infertility...)
