    Hi Ladies

    Well Tammara you got me all blurry eyed and the I read everyone elses replys and that was it.

    Thank you ladies it means so much to me.

    I have some more good news. Out of those 15 follies we got 9 that fertilised. So we have (as DH would say) 9 little ME's lol!

    I'm stocked to say the least. We will have some to freeze. Great result. ET is def Friday. I'll ring tomorrow for a time as it's EKKA holiday for some up here lol.

    Bec - I'm a little tender in the tummy and I had pains all night. But it was nothing I couldn't handle with a heat pack and some painkillers.



    I must say though I am a pharmacists dream atm with all the pessaries, injections (yes still jabbing just different jabbing now lol) and pill popping I'm doing. I really should be off with the fairies!

    oh really? i used to sleep walk as a kid, and haven't done it in years, but i did a few weeks back, i woke up infront of the fridge with all the lights on in the house...dh asleep in bed none the wiser! lol! Kind of scared me a little bit!

    They say dreams are a manifestation of feelings you can't come to terms with/are really feeling but can't put your finger on it?

    Are you worried about your scan coming up? Im sure everything will be fine!!

    wow 9 chances thats fantastic!!!! we only got 7 embrios all up so odds look good i dont know about you or anyone else doing or has done ivf but it made me relax a little and not get my hopes set on working straight up cos i had the mindset of we have 7 chances. Good luck with ET it is so easy compared to the pick up. Cant wait for your result

    As for the dreams, i usually have strange dreams but lately they have been totally mental! but fun all the same lol

    Porsche - that's unreal hun!! You must be so relieved, good to have a backup stash (even if it's for the next one). Good luck for Friday!!!!!! I have everything crossed you get a BFP.

    Kris - Not sure what my problem is, I think I feel like I should be doing something, but actually maybe it is the scan as I keep talking about tests and stuff. The PG is definitely there as I am pretty sick and really tired, but I guess you just never know and I will be so happy to see the HB next week... FX that everything goes as it should. On a positive we have booked a little holiday to Noosa in October - Can't wait. It's been such a miserable winter in Sydney - rain rain rain.

    Once again, huge congrats Porsche xx

    Could be!! Everyone is different, I didn't have any symptoms whatsoever - in fact you probably remember I kept saying this month is over this month is over... When is your CD21 Prog test?

    Tomorrow, and i was very much like that last night, kept telling DH the drugs didn't work cos it doesn't feel like it did 1st round, however i think the general consesus is the 2nd round is very different to the 1st round!

    Plus this time last round i didn't have this lower back pain! Definetly obsessing when i promised myself i wouldn't!!
    Time to log out of fertility friend! Lmao!

    Try not to stress or obsess, you have been so good this month... It will be, even if your not thinking about it so no point in worrying and stressing... I agree, second cycle is so different from the first, that's why I thought it was going to be a BFN as I didn't have as many SE. I know it is easier said than done, but try and relax and put it to the back of your mind (focus on your positive wall and something else if you can).

    Good luck tomorrow, I hope you get a good result!!

    And yes get your b.utt out of FF xx

    Wow porsche, that is so exciting, 9 little you's that is sooo cool. best of luck for friday and posting your BFP in a few weeks. IKWYM about the public hol, I had went to ring my FS on my lunchbreak and they had closed at 12pm.

    Pumpgirl how exciting you are going to here the HB next week. You are going to love it up in Noosa, it is a nice place, I must say QLD is a great place hehehe (I might be a little bias though).

    Tammara, I was hoping that when I do get my BFP that the wierd dreams would stop or at least calm down a little.

    Miss Kris, I think it is so true about the dreams, mine tend to get far to crazy when I am stressing over stuff. FX'd that they are good signs for you (having the cramps, etc) and you catch that little egg.

    AFM, I have been coming in daily to read everyone's posts, but haven't posted anything myself as nothing new was happening with me. Except for now. YYYYYAAAAAYYYYYY AF finally started today, and I must say I have never been so happy to have her arrive, the girls at work thought I was a little crazy but understand why I was soo happy. So tomorrow is when I will be starting this cycle's meds and ringing my FS to book it my appointment to start the injections next week. So this time next week will be getting DH to jab me, which I am sure he is going to get joy out of, lol. As I was anoying him last night quite badly and he turned to me and said "you do realise next week I will be jabbing you with a needle", to which I then decided that I should stop anoying him hehehe. Anyway, that is all for me today, can't wait to see some more BFP's on here, babydust to everyone. Oh and Bec for your chart I am CD1. YYYIIIPPPEEEEE

    Default Starting Clomid

    Hi All,

    My name is Mel, and I am about to start my first round of Clomid. I have PCOS and I have been on Metformin for years, but as I don't ovulate very often or at all, our past efforts in TTC naturally have been futile.

    Feeling excited, nevous and everything inbetween! Would really appreciate any tips/hints/advice that anyone has for the coming weeks and months.

    Hi WBM!!

    Welcome to our thread!!

    Tip #1 - Take clomid at night, then you sleep through most of the SE!

    Be prepared for the rollercoaster of emotions, but remember to keep your eye on the prize ... a bubba at the end of it all!!
    It will keep you going through those hot flushes and mood swings! :P

    But its really not all that bad at all! Some of these ladies have had no side effects at all!!! (Lucky cows! Lol)

    Im only joking! I hope your stay here and short and sweet and you get your BFP soon!!

    POrsche- 9 is awesome!!! That's so great. I'm glad you're not feeling too bad, and am looking forward to seeing a BFP soon!
    Liz- so glad Af finally arrived! I'll change the chart.
    Mel- Welcome and heres' to a short and sweet journey for you. Hopefully the first round is your BFP round. I second everything Miss Kris said. Also, I would suggest making sure your FS is following up with at least Progesterone test at CD21 or follie scans to check your progress. Ovulation Predictor kits DO work on clomid (usually!) and they are helpful too. FX for you!
    Pumpgirl- looks like your business is really getting going. What an exciting 2010/2011 you will have! GL with your scan, I'm sure it will be amazing!
    Kris- I hope that your cramping is a good sign! GL with you BT, hope all is looking good!

    Hi everyone else! How are you all?
    AFM: Nothing new to report really. I'm CD 21, and no sign of o yet, so it looks like another LONG cycle for me this round. Oh well! It's my b'day on Monday and maybe DH will get lucky this year! Just a quick question for you IVF girls; if I see the FS at say 5DPO, and I'm not UTD this round, is that enough time to begin an IVF cycle on the next round, or would I likely have to wait for the following round? Stupid question maybe, but I'm a very impatient person, and I've already waited over 2 years!!
    I'll update the chart too,
    Have a good night!
    Bec

    Damn, just wrote a long post then pressed reply to thread and lost it all.... D'oh!

    Anyhoo, sounds like everyone is busy and getting some good results. Congrats to those of you with good news to report.

    As for me, I had my scan today. I think it went ok.... Endo 9mm, no follicles on my left ovary, two on my right ovary - 16mm and 12mm. My FS seemed pretty happy. I am not having a trigger injection, etc this month because she wants "to see" what happens without it. Hopefully this is a good sign.
    What do you guys think? Is two follicles okay/normal/good/bad?????

    I really value the advice of you guys who have been going through this for a while. I feel like a babe in the woods (much prefer it if I was just a babe! ; ) lol ). Maybe in my next life....

    Take care all....And keep smiling

    Default Questions

    Thanks everyone for your welcomes. I have a couple of questions...

    I am seeing a OB/Gyno at this stage (Dr Bevan Brown) for the first 3 to 4 cycles and if we have no luck, then he is refering me to a fertility specialist. I asked about ultra sounds etc while on Clomid, and he said that unless I felt a lot of pain at ovulation he wasn't concerned about hyperstimulation and that I wouldn't need any scans. So unless something good happens soon, then I guess they will kick things up a notch and start doing scans etc with the FS? Has anyone else been on Clomid without having follicle scans?

    I know there is no normal, but what are the results like for Clomid? Brown gave me the feeling he expected this to work, but then there would be no point in him being pesimistic would there! I just want to be realistic in my expectations.
