    Morning all
    Glad everyone seems to be waiting to start either the pill or HRT feels like an ivf thread atm so I guess I have no input ! as I can't go down that road, anyone doing the natural just counting the days until Ovulation and old fashioned Bdancing ?

    Hope you all go well and get your BFPs I think I may be the last one on this thread at this rate so guess I best get used to it,

    AFM well AF left the building which is a blessing in one way but very worrying in another as she was only here 2 days this time so I wonder if this is the start of the slippery slope towards the big Menapause and my body has simply given up producing eggs !

    Sorry for the downer but feel really fed up want to just get on with my life but feel I can't just give up on trying for my BFP !!!! what to do give me strength to get throug the next mnth !

    Hi Ladies

    Mildez - When I got to CD35 FS put me on BC. Purely because Af was no where to be seen. I had to take it for 16 days. Not the surgar pills though. On the 8th day of BC I started sniffing. The on the 16th day of BC I stopped and waited for AF. Mine took 7 days to come. All the while sniffing. So once AF came i had to see FS on CD6 and he did a scan and started me injecting purgeon and I'm still sniffing but I only do that once a day rather than twice a day..

    Matthew's Mum - I really hope that this is the one for you!

    craftymummy-i'm giving the old-fashioned why another go due to fet being cancelled(not that i'm thinking it will do any good unless we get some super sperm that can break through my tubal blockage,i find though i can't just miss a month),i've been doing a detox diet,maybe that will work wonders...mildez-hope you found your book,i had to go re-read parts of mine lots of times,sorry i probably confused you more...afm-have an oppurtunity to write matthew's story to sumit for possible publication in a book about loss,not sure if i should or not(don't know if i would be able to honour his memory well enough)

    Sorry Mildez you're right - you wait for your next AF, go on the pill on day one, get a BCP AF then start the injections etc - MatthewsMum is right though every clinic does it differently so you'll confirm it all when you speak to them.

    Crafty - hang in there - this TTC business is a waiting game at our age and patience will win out in the long run it's just hard to keep your chin up each month I know. I don't think you'll be the last one in here 'cause sadly we're not the only ones going through this awful thing and others will come. Try to give yourself some treats - either something yummy to eat or an hour to yourself in the bath or a curled up with a book. I know that's easy to say when you don't have kids but hoping you can find a window there for you to do something nice for yourself. x

    MatthewsMum - I'm sure you could do Matthew's memory justice - you're his Mum after all and who could love him more than you? Maybe writing it down will help with your loss - I've heard that can help though I've never tried it. You've given a lot of yourself here in posting and it has helped and inspired others so imagine how much you could give through sharing your story in a book that can reach others? It's a beautiful opportunity if you feel up to it but in the end you know whether you can or not x

    Ferrals - that's great you're off the progesterone support - with your healthy high levels I'm sure this bub is snuggling in good and tight.

    Hi guys! haven't had much time lately to log on but have been reading, once my tax return goes through I will get my computer fixed and not have to use DH's which will be better.

    Mildez just thought I would let you know they way they do it at my clinic, as it only operates on certain times as well and everyone has their EPU in the same week each month. I was like you when I started the pill and had no idea when I was starting sniffing, how long to take the pill etc but when I had my appt with the nurse it all became clear. I just have to keep taking the pill ( hormone tabs only) until its time to get in sync with everyone else and start the rest of the stuff, so I will basically skip my next AF by taking the next pills straight away. I don't start the nose spray for another 3 wks so will have been on the BCP for nearly 2 months, it has been ok though, my mood is so stable and I am really happy at the moment.

    Hi everyone else, I haven't got time ot write anymore but hopefully will do more persies tomorrow when I am lounging around after night shift. I have to tell you all about this hideous prank call we got yesterday. p.s. alice I like your chicken ticker xx

    Hi girls,
    I am just sneaking in to say hi and i am keeping an eye on you all.
    I am fine just really bloated still and retaining fluid maybe a slight case of OHSS my ovaries are still tender but otherwise good i have lots of appointments comming up with professors, geneticists and the fetal medicine unit over the next 7 weeks so it will be pretty nerve racking but i am just praying that mother nature has chosen a healthy one for us this time and we get through all this and can actually relax and look forward to bringing a baby home.

    T-Hopes- love the avy you sexy thing and good to see your FS is making suggestions are you going to do an IUI?.

    Hi lovelies!

    Crafty - Im sorry to hear that your feeling so blue, I wish there was something i could say to ease the frustration that your feeling, clutch on to the hand of your gorgeous DH and walk together... I hope it leads you to a BFP sooner than you think xx

    Alice - Loving the chicky ticky!! CUTE! So happy to see things are coming together for you!!! YOur plan is coming in to play! Great feeling!!! All the very best! Thank you for asking after my MIL - she is doing very well considering she has had her tongue removed! Surprisingly, she is in good spirits! Its a big adjustment for all of us cause she can no longer talk so communicating is her writing on a mini-whiteboard! She is so swollen that she is unrecognisable, i almost fainted wen i saw her, devastating!! Anway, good luck fr the coming weeks and mths!!

    Saffy & Porsche - happy pill poppin!! Who would have thought we would be excited about BCP!!!

    matthewsmum - what a fabulous opportunity to write of your journey! I think its a wonderful way to honour him and help others that may be experiencing a loss. If the book had half the inspirational words you write in here, it will be a blessing for all!

    Mildez - how are things going with you? What stage are you at now??

    Sunbeam & Ferrals (and MurrayCod if your lurking!)- hope you and bubs are well and your feeling good!

    Ferrals - hope your still walking after all that shaggin, you little horn bag you!!! Grrr tiger!

    AFM - Well we saw our FS last night for my 8wk post op visit! He has recommended IUI or IVF. He feels IUI would be a good place to start with our circumstances. We agree. So I made the 1st call today and registered us! I feel fab that we have a PLAN!!! We obviously have lots of administrative stuff to do, police checks, and nurse/ counciling appts etc but the PLAN is to start in 2 cycles time! AF is due next week so in theory we will start in 5-6 weeks time! Feeling good about it! Have anyone of you had any experience with IUI?? He said I will be on puregon injections??!

    Anyway, thats it for me! I hope I didnt miss anyone!!

    Love to you all xx

    HI Ladies

    T-Hopes I'm so glad you have a plan now. It's like a weight has been lifted isn't it? Such a relief. I'm now up to my 4th day of jabbing lol Having a scan on Friday to see how we are responding.

    T-Hopes your avatar is super sexy lol I love it. And yee-haa to having a plan of action. Sounds like a number of us will be around the same stage. I am waiting on a phone call today to arrange a call with the FS (doing it all over the hpone because of where we live) then next monday I have another phone call with the nurse to go over the cycle in detail and for her to answer my 101 questions. And then its waiting for AF to start the pill. Maybe that will change we will have to see. DH is been a pain in the butt. He freaked out about having to go to Sydney twice (for EU and then transfer) he said he didn't know that was involved. Honestly I don't know what planet he has been living on with all these discussions. I don't know what to do. He just has no idea and doesn't seemt o retain anything he is told. Then he said we will go there and back in the day. Like thats possible. Its over 1000kms there and back well and truely and then the time for surgery etc. He is now making something already stressful even worse. Going to tell him to snap out of it or else I'll cancel as already I can't handle him complaining the amount he is. It sucks that its so far away as thats the issue. I suggested going on my own or with a friend for transfer but he wont have a bar of that either. Sorry vent done.

    Hi all

    T-hopes love the avatar super sexy ! glad you are getting some action in the pipeline seems you will be the next BFP on here with Mildez and saffy and porsche and matthews mum and of course Alice, wow still a few of us to get to that stage but you are all getting help now so looks good for everyone,
    I had IUI 19yrs ago now we had 3 attempts with DHs sperm but by the time it was washed the little he had to start with was almost all gone after cleaning so we went on to have donor sperm and got a BFP 2nd try ! BUT since then DH has managed to have 7 kids of his own all natural conception and also 4 misscarriages so I guess you could say in the long run it was well worth it, Our son from donor is so much like his dad its amazing to think he is not genetically his, anyway I had to take clomid and have scans and then inseminated on the day before ovulation just a qucik straw with the sperm in put high inside the uterus and thats it. I don't know how they do it now a days but back then was painless and quick so FX you get a good result 1st try. When they used my DHs sperm he had to produce some in a pot and it was washed to take out any abnormal sperms and then the insemination was the same. ( But I do feel him having to produce it in a pot in a poxy little room well lets say it was not easy for him to relax and get a good amount ) anyway its not too bad when you get the end result thats the miracle bit !!!!
    Mildez sorry your DH is being a pain MEN sometimes I wonder why we bother telling them anything in one ear and out the other ! hope you can agree to somthing soon but it seems a long trip to do in one day there and back ! don't let it get you too stressed you need to relax !!!!

    AFM well will get my keys to my new house in the next 10 days so super excited to be having our own home again been 5 yrs since we had that feeling of our own home ! so busy packing and packing and well just getting on with moving this crowd of mine all the kids a bit mixed up about moving again but we will manage ( due to ovulate around the time of moving so maybe this will be my month )

    Keep smiling I found a smile again after the disapointment of the weekend with AF turning up but as they say onwards and upwards !!!!! NOT GIVING UP THAT EASY !

    Morning everyone,

    Hope you are all well today.

    Crafty, good on you, that's the spirit - you know perseverance pays off so keep at it and your BFP can't be far away now. How exciting to get the keys to your new house!! I hope the move goes well and the kids settle in quickly.

    Sunbeam, hope you're resting up at your Mum & Dad's still and all is going well with you.

    Mildez, these men can be a pain in the backside, can't they? I hope you don't have to come down and go back the same day - that's just too tiring and you need to take it easy and be as restful as you can. I hope you can get that sorted out. Once you get started things will probably fall into place for him a bit more - its all very abstract until you get things going then it makes more sense.

    Porsche - good luck for tomorrow's scan - I hope you are responding super well and you can look forward to your egg pick up soon. Sounds like you have a really good chance with this cycle - fingers crossed it all goes your way.

    T-hopes - oo look at your sexy avatar!! It's fun getting them, isn't it? That's great that you have a plan - so it's IUI in 2 cycles time? Is that right?? Well we can still hope for BFPs in the meantime, can't we? Your poor MIL - we had a friend who had tongue cancer but luckily they didn't have to remove it and I just remember how sick he was. Must be awful for her and very distressing for everyone in the family to see her go through that.

    Ferrals, I hope this little embie is a good strong one - what an army of specialists you're going to have to deal with, that'd make anyone nervous. Sorry you are feeling bloated and sore - drink lots and lots of water - it'll help, as you probably already know and are doing! Are you feeling tired?

    Saffy, glad the OCP isn't bothering you especially if you have to be on it for a few months. That's interesting that they do you all in a group - would make things much easier resource-wise I guess. Hope all stays well with you for the next stage.

    Sorry to miss anyone - I know I have but I have to go to Sydney for my tax return so gotta run. All fine here - just waiting to start now. Feeling apprehensive about it all - what if it doesn't work? I so don't want to have to deal with the pain and grief of that all over again. I keep debating whether this will be our last go or not but maybe now isn't a time to make that sort of decision. In August it'll be 10 years since we started TTC and it's our Dec bub's EDD so big anniversaries coming up. Trying not to dwell on them but finding myself having moments when I feel really down and sad. Anyway, taking each day at a time and trying to stay hopeful.

    Sorry for the lack of personals just thought I would update that we are now doing an antagonist cycle so will be starting as soon as AF arrives. Its a bit of a shock. Because we are under 30 the FS thought it was best to aim for fewer eggs as he feels I will be at high risk of over stimulation. OMG I start next week.

    Hi Ladies

    Alice - GBH to you. As you said just take one day at a time. I'm not looking forward to my EDD anniversary either and mines in November.

    Thaks so much for the luck i'm really going to need it as I realised this morning I've F'd up my injections for the last 3 days! I've been injecting well nothing. I noticed the other day that it was really easy to give them to myself I didn't have to dislocate my thumb to push the top down and inject. I though oh wow it's getting easier as the vial gets used. It's been like that for 3 days.

    Any way after doing my injection this morning by some chance i looked at the pen and saw that it had become unscrewed! So now I'm screwed! I'm guessing it's been like that for the past 3 freaking days! I can't believe how stupid I've been to not notice.

    So out of the 5 days of jabbing I've only had 2 actual doses. 1 on day 1 and I know that worked because the nurse was instructing me and day 2 because I could feel the resistance in the dial when I injected.

    I guess the FS will just up the dose tomorrow after my scan but now I'm concerned that if he does then I will definately over stim and have to cancel my cycle. So I'm guessing there will be no follicles there grrrrrr stupid stupid stupid!

    Porsche-did you check how much was in the vial to make sure of the amount left and the amount that was suposed to be used and when i took mine i always make sure there is a tiny drop at the top before i jnject myself.

    Mildez-good luck i found the antagonist cycle to be easy yes you get less eggs but when you have heaps of follicles like i did you can overstimm so they aim for around 8-12 then it is unlikely you will develope OHSS.

    AFM- i am sssssssooooooooooooooooooooo tired am try to pop in and keep an eye on you all but not up to typing to much my eyelids are struggling.

    OMG where have all my cycle buddies gone?!! Saffy, I need you!!

    Mildez, that's very exciting that you can start so soon!! Fingers crossed all goes well for you!

    Porsche you poor thing I've done something similar once before and was so scared I'd f'ed up the cycle but it still went ahead and we got a good (for us) result so don't worry just yet! They might just leave you on the same dose for a bit longer and scan you again Monday. Fingers crossed it all be OK. Let us know how you go tomorrow xx

    Ferrals, tired is good but only if you can rest. Don't worry about persies - just nice to have you pop in and to get an update on how you're going. Hope you can put your feet up.

    Hi Ladies

    Ferrals & Alice thanks for the advise. We had an FS appointment this morning and I confessed my sins lol. He's upped my dose and we see him again on Tuseday. He said there was something happening in there. EPU still could be friday but he said Monday could be an option as well.

    Ferrals - I can see the liquid in the vial but it didn't move so I def know that yesterdays injection didn't work. I'm going to be super careful when injecting now lol. Tired is a good sign make sure you get plenty of sleep.

    Porsche glad to hear the thing didn't really have a negative effect on the cycle. I have everything crossed for you for a fab rseult at EPU and the days/weeks following.

    Me me post. Now the antagonist cycle has been thrown at me lol I am worried I should be doing the original plan the long cycle. Yesterday I found out I get hit with another $1500 which isn't claimable on medicare taking the cost up to almost $10000 so thats depressing. It means even with our tax return we can't afford another cycle for at least 6months except possible FET cycles. One would hope it will work so it will never be a concern but I did want to be able to afford a 2nd cycle in a few months if needed. I think I'll be jumping clinics in that case. It ****s me of the original quote was $6500 and now its $3000 more.
