    So sorry Shezz.
    I must admit, I haven't been keeping very good track of where everyone is up to. Is it too soon for the dreaded stick to be right? They're often wrong remember.
    I am thinking of you.
    Love

    Good morning ladies

    Leisa, I'm taking a day off today too. Dh will have to ring in for me in 15 minutes time. Feeling a bit too tired & got things to do & don't want to stress from not getting things done while I'm in TWW.
    Some people's reactions are funny aren't they.

    Shez when is your actual BT day, and what CD are you. I swear I don't trust the HPT after the last few months with them being wrong. chin up & wait for the test.

    Sue are you still doing your research or are you waiting til your cycle comes closer.

    Take care

    Hey girls
    *Tam* and Leisa, I'm having a MHD today too. Too much p*nis measuring going on in my section atm. Yesterday was the last straw. Had I gone in today, blood would have been spilled. Being the 'girl' it would have been mine. I am so fed up with cr*p.
    Hey, Leis, shame you can't take a detour via Green Pt!!! I turn 43 tomorrow, groan.
    *Tam*, I've finished my research, many thanks to all of you. I'm giving my body a rest this and next cycle. I'm still spotting and my ovaries were still sore up until last week. MY EPU was 11/8!. Obviously, my old bod is taking longer to recover from the stim cycle. Looks as though I'll start an ICSI Flare cycle around 19/10.
    Hi Sushee, I know you're lurking.
    Good luck to you all.
    Oh, I'll probably have a name change tomorrow - can't be sue42 any more. It will probably be something floral. Stay tuned....
    Love
    Sue :luck:

    Have a glass of vino for me tomorrow Sue. Hope you have a great day - at least you don't have to work! Lots of mental health days all round it sounds like. I work in retail and nothing like that exists for us :evil: . There should be cause alot of customers send me mental.

    Tam - you enjoy your day too honey. You'll need your energy for some TWW obsessing next week.

    Leis - the funny thing is my DH has said I'm really moody lately and nagging him alot. He's blaming it on the hormones - but haaaaaa I'm not on any that would cause this. It's just me being me

    Humphrey, sometimes that's the good thing about taking the hormones, You can be a big ***** & blame them.
    Yes I probably will start obsessing next week, I feel ok now but I know when it comes within a few days that'll be the hard part. And since I havn't got any Pregnyl support this cycle I will start looking for symptoms, but then again a few graduates never had symptoms either. So I think I'll just tear my hair out.

    Maybe my obsessing is starting now 8-[
    How are you going Humphrey

    Sue, something floral will be very appropriate, can't wait, and hope you do enjoy your birthday, have a drink for me too.

    Today is 14 dpo and i feel like af is coming so it is over. I have rung the dr as this was the last IUI before IVF, so I start the pill when af arrives. A little shell shocked I think.

    Shez - I'm sorry that IUI hasn't worked for you. I know the thought of IVF can be scary - both because it's so invasive and also cause what happens if it doesn't work?. But just think of all the girls who have recently left us for the pregnancy forums. Take it easy honey and we'll be here to help you through.

    Tam - I'm really crampy today! I know I'm obsessing too much already and am glad my weekend is full so I won't have time to think too much.

    Confession coming..... yes I weakened this morning. Of course it was a BFN but I was expecting nothing less at 12DPO. I just did it cause Sushee told me not to . Plus I have about a dozen of those crapparoonie EBay tests which are known to be useless (got them free with my O tests which worked great). So anyway they are just taking up space in my drawer and bugging me and I want to get rid of them. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
