    Hi Mooz and welcome to the thread, the ladies on here are just wonderful and the support and advice is fantastic. I am guessing from what you have said about your cycles, that you are infact ovulating, so that is why your clomid dosage hasn't gone up. I'm not sure about what your FS will say, but I know for me the next step was IUI, but I myself didn't ovulate on clomid by itself even at 150mg. GL with your journey and hope you get the answers that you want.

    WBM IKWYM about trying to think you are "normal", but with what we are going through, what is normal, not every cycle is the same. Oh I just realised that we are in the same part of our TWW, GL with the waiting game.

    Hi epayne thank u for your kind words and yes what is normal when each cycle can be so different. Yes i did ovulate on my first cycle with clomid i had a bt on day 23 and my fs said i had ovualted and there was no need to put my dosage up as the levels from the bt where high, he also didnt think he would see me again {nor did i} but he sure will be next week lol. GL with your tww aswell i hope your af stays away with mine

    Hey girls,

    hope everyone is doing well whatever stage of your cycle your on, hoping to see alot of BFP really soon from you all

    as for me i have had a horrible last couple of weeks, as you may know i have been on metformin since 02/06/10 and got AF a few days after starting, i have had AF constantly the whole of this time apart from 6 days when it stopped at around cycle day 30,and i got high hopes that maybe it was working and that i was going to start to be somewhat normal but sure enough 6 days later it started again and has been going ever since, and this past week has been super super heavy, and to top it off i had to get a referral from the doctor for my appointment next wed with sydney ivf and he was just a rude arrogant man, for starters we kept telling me i seem stressed why would i be stressed i have nothing to stress about, and man i dont think he knew that i was going to yell back at him, i replied with " i wonder why i am stressed this has been going on for over 5.5yrs with everyone telling me im young it will happen and no one really wanting to help me even though every doctor knew i had pcos and was going to need help to achieve being pregnant, and every year that they keep telling me im young i keep getting older, so yeh i am stressed and i have a valid reason to be" he then went on to tell me even fertile couples only have a 30% chance each month and even if i only get my period 2 times a year then i have 2 chances and not to worry, that sent me even more angry and i just thought to myself where on earth did you get your doctors licence because you sure lack on the caring and helping side of it, he didnt even care when i told him i have had AF for going on to 5mths, and then he tried to tell me that the endocrinologist i am seeing is wrong to have put me on metformin as it is going to do nothing for me, i told him that i think i will take the advice from a highly regarded specialist over a local gp, i finally got the referral after walking out of there crying and also fuming in anger, and i see dr hilary joyce next wed so hopefully she will get the ball rolling and actually care and take and interest in us and actually want to help us achieve getting pregnant.

    I am so sorry for the long rant i just needed to vent to someone as i am still angry today about the doctors visit yesterday. Also i dont know if i should post in here or somewhere else but does anyone know what our first appointment with sydney ivf will include and how long after your first appointment do you really start to tackle the problem, i really want to take it by the horns and get it going straight away.

    Thankyou all so much for listening to me complain

    Kristie you need to get your self a new GP. It may take a month or so to start any treatments but they will take a whole heap of blood from you and they will require a semen analyisis done on your DH before they will start any treatments.

    Do you need to do police checks in Sydney? I'm in Brisbane and we don't. Maybe get the ball rolling on that as well for both of you. Maybe call the clinic and ask what paper work needs to be done before treatments can start and that way you can get the ball rolling and not sit and wait to be told. Unfortunatly you yourself have to be a little pro active in this stuff.

    Bec: YAY on the good test results. All the best with the jabbing regime. Hope all goes well for you this time around. Um, does this mean you do not have POCS?

    Epayne: hehe, if you have any luck with coming up with ways to convince DH to find out the sex of baby when it happens, can you give me some tips. I think I do want to find out but he is currently adamant that we are not finding out and I really can't keep it as a secret from him, I am bound to slip up for sure. I hope this cycle is a great cycle for you. FX hun.

    mooz: Welcome and all the best on this journey. You will find loads of support from this group, they are all so wonderful.

    Miss Kris: YAY on AF arriving (IYKWIM). FX for round three.

    A big hello to everyone elso here. Sorry for not doing persies to you all, I'm still not too sure where you are all up to.

    The only advice i can give you kristy is to make sure you tell the ivf dr everything that you have tried so they dont put you on the same path. My first appointment was to assess me on ways to get preg before ivf but when the metformin, clomid, IUI and ovarian drilling didnt work it all happened pretty fast. I think i went and seen him in late november early december and we got the ball going from there - filling out paper work, councelling and in Victoria we had to do police checks and i think its like a working with children type check. Once all this was done we had to wait for a period which came new years day and i had egg transfer Feb 15 so i think it was pretty fast, but 12 months leading up to it trying other options - but sounds like you have already tried the other options. Good luck with it

    Hope everyone else is doing good and look forward to another spurt of BFP's

    Everything is going good with me still, getting very big now and extremely excited only just over 5 weeks to go now!

    Take care ladies xxoo

    hey everyone,

    Tammara: yeh we have tried a few options so hopefully that will make the process a bit quicker... Also i researched it a bit online and it seems like you dont need a police check in NSW... Thanks for the advice

    Porshe: Thanks for the reply if i have had a full set of blood tests done only in june will they want me to do them again or will brining in the results of those ones be enough, also dh has already had a SA and has the results at home again if we bring them a copy of that will that be enough? no police checks have to be done in NSW so thats one thing to cross off the list, I try to be proactive as we have never wanted something so bad in our lives but i have just had no luck finding a doctor that really wants to get in there and help us achieve our goal, so hopefully my appointment on wed will be the start of a new chapter and we will actually make some progress...

    Also does anyone think that accupunture actually helps ttc?

    As for everyone else i hope your all doing great and lots of babydust to each and everyone of you...

    Hi Everyone,

    Welcome to the thread mooz, I am sure that you will find the support from all the ladies here priceless.

    Liz - I hope you are doing better than me on your TWW. I was doing okay, but starting to get anxious now! These last days are the worst!

    Kristie - I hope that things work out for you and hubby soon. I have wanted a baby since as long as I can remember, so I know your pain.

    AFM - Need some advice!! On Thursday afternoon I started bleeding. I had, had a pink tinge to my CM for a couple of days, and then when I went to the bathroom on Thursday afternoon there was spotting and I have had it since. It has stopped and started a bit, and is very light, not like a normal period, much lighter. I have a feeling that maybe I didn't ovulate and this is my cycle being crazy? Has anyone else had anything like this?

    Hi girls,
    just wanted to say good luck to those TWWers. Hope you guys get BFP's!
    I haven't been checking in enough, and I'm no sure where you all are at, so good luck, welcome, commiserations on AF arriving, yahoo for ovulating, baby dust, sticky vibes and general how are you to everyone!

    AFM: Finished primulot and waiting for AF which should be in the next few days. Jabbing starts CD2 and then scans etc untill ready to induce ovulation with pregnyl. then 2 pregnyl boosters throughout TWW (has anyone else had this??). I'm not sure exactly what the process is called, it's the same as IUI but just DTD at home as per usual. OI still I suppose.
    I'm so sorry I haven't been in more, I'm having a bit of trouble getting everything together at the moment. I promise I'll be more with it and supportive once this new cycle starts.
    Hugs to you all,
    Bec

    Bec, GL with all the jabbing. You are doing what we are, the IUI process but going home to DTD instead of insemination. You have been through alot, so I think you deserve to have some time out now and then, we all do I reckon. Best of luck hun and hope AF doesn't take too long to arrive and you can start the new cycle.

    WBM not sure I can give you any advice, but I must say that I have had a little pink CM today when going to the bathroom. So I'm in the need for a little advice as well. When are you due to do a test again ? can't remember when you are due to do one. Sorry I can't help, but best of luck hun.

    Kristie OMG, I would be getting a new GP. What an a***h**e to not understand that you would be stressed about what is going on. Hoping when you go to your appointment you will be able to start the next part of your journey and move forward.

    Tammara, how exciting only 5 weeks, hope you have a nice and easy birth.

    Hello to everyone else out there hoping you are all travelling well.

    AFM well half way through my TWW and am starting to wonder about a few things, I haven't had any real signs yet and can't wait for next weekend to come around. Can I ask a little advice and sorry for TMI, but I have noticed a pink CM when I go to the bathroom and just wondering what it might mean??

    Wishing everyone babydust and stickyvibes...

    Liz xx

    Liz,
    Not too sure how many dpo I am as I only did OPKs on and off and never saw a OPK+ (so maybe I didn't even ovulate), but I am CD 23 (and last month was a 27 day cycle). I am the same as you this month, hardly anything in the way of signs or symptoms. Other than the light bleeding, I haven't really felt any different, not like last month! Maybe your pink CM is implantation related? You are about the right point to see that?? Maybe? My fingers are crossed ever so tightly for you!! xx

    HI Ladies

    Kristie - You can take you results with you but the IVF clinics like to do their own tests. Especially semen as they are the experts in the feild not just some QML or S&N generic place. They know what to look for and grade it acordingly.

    Just a quick one from me, before I go to work. Well I feel like crawling up into a ball and crying, I woke up with AF this morning and just am a little disappointed Now I just don't know what to think cause today I was only 9dpo, does anyone know why I am getting AF that soon after Oing?? I will be asking FS next week when I start the injections again and see what he says. Hope everyone else is having a better day than me.

    Hey Liz,
    Just wanted so say I'm very sorry to hear that AF showed her ugly head this morning! Not sure as to why she showed up so early, does seem a little odd. Hopefully your FS will be able to shed some more light on it for you next week. GL and my fingers are crossed that cycle 3 is your third time lucky charm!

    Hey ladies,
    So i finished my third round of clomid and it didn't work. So Dr O has given me a referral to either Monash IVF or Repromed (i think) in Adelaide.
    He said i will start doing injections with them.

    Has anyone had to deal with either of these guys or could explain to me what will happen??

    Thanks!

    Hi Liz,

    Sorry to hear about AF! Are you positive that is AF? It could be implantation bleeding? Some women mistaken implantation for a period I have heard? I hope you are okay. xx

    Hey all,

    Just popping in quickly to say Hi and hope you are all well. Nothing to report here - on our last clomid cycle before going onto IUI. Am feeling mixed emotions & am secretly hoping not to have to do IUI. Sorry for lack of persies, been really busy at work & home. Hope to have some downtime on the weekend.
