    Hi Girls,

    Shez - i'm so sorry. Hope things start looking up for you...

    Rose - Good luck tomorrow...i'll have my toes and fingers crossed for you that you get your BFP.....

    Well our anniversary was lovely. We worked the shop in the morning and then DH's parents came in to give us the arvo off. We went into town, had some cake & coffee for lunch (a bit naughty, but who cares....we never get to go out). Then we took our fur-baby Archie (German Shephard x dachshaund - 4 yrs - i know what a combination...he looks like a shephard but has short little legs and a long body....cute as a button though) for a swim, which didn't last too long coz a red-belly black snake swam in between me and Archie (we were a foot apart in the water) and that freaked me out, so we got out and just sat on the bank for an hour or so. Then DH took me to a lovely restaurant for dinner, the pokies, then up to a local lookout that looks over the town. So pretty up there at night time.

    Tell you what, if i still wasn't bleeding then he would have certainly got something in return (if you know what i mean...LOL)

    Had my BETA yesterday and got the results this morning. It was negative, but i knew all along that it was going to be, so i was quite prepared. So today i started on Primolut to bring on AF, so fingers crossed that it works and we can get going on a fresh new cycle and have this annoying bleeding stopped. It has now been 52 days and i'm totally over it.

    Sending out big hugs to you all.....you all keep me sane....



    Good luck to everyone and lets get some graduates in here.........

    Hi girls, have not posted in couple of days as working late. Getting very anxious to drop my hours ASAP! Day off today but filled with appointments so taking quick moment now to catch up.
    Nola - Can't remember if I have congratulated you on the "secret". I am crossing everything that Ihe IVF road is not too hard on you (and DH) and that you get a BFP very soon
    Rose- Happy birthday for yesterday and I hop tommorrow brings the best belated present ever!
    Ann- have not met you on this thread yet as I am quite new but wishing you all the best for you BT today. a positive on a HPT is a positive if you ask me!
    Shez- So, so sorry that this round did not fulfill your wishes. I hopr your Dr appointment next weeks brings a new plan and renewed hope
    Jane - How are you doing post op. Hopefully feeling fighting fit for the BD fest this weekend!

    Thankyou to those who asked after my little furry Wilbur -he is doing very well. Did some more testing on him yesterday and appears he is in diabetic remission(cats have an odd way of being diabetic for awhile then not!). This means no more insulin shots for him (for now). At least one drug we can remove from the fridge!!
    Took one of my other babies out to an orthopoedic specialist colleague of mine today. "Emmie" is my true first "child" (she was even around before DH!). A gorgeous ****er spaniel who is now 14yrs old but still quite spritely. She had some major pelvic/hip surgery as a youngster and having real problems with this at present. Have left her at their clinic so the other surgical specialist can look at her too! You'd think vets pets should be fully healthly eh?
    As for me, have recovered fine from lap -just rather vibrant,multicoloured bruising around my belly -no bikini for me this weekend!
    Saw my specialist this morning. Biopsy and all remaining test results are fine so defnitely no answers regarding my recurrent m/c's. She still thinks i have just been really "unlucky". Will get HCG results back this afternoon and as long as this is close to 0 then I can start a new OI cycle -yipee!
    Will have to take provera to bring on AF and will then start on puregon injs. Will be new for me as used clomid/pregnyl last time but beginning to actually feel bit excited and hopeful again for the first time since the m/c. Third time lucky -I hope! Will be having prog pessaries and clexane injs starting just after ovulation. [-o< something works this time!!
    Shan -you posted just as I was. Wanted to wish you luck also on the fresh cycle to come. Hopefully there will be a few of us looking at late Nov/Dec bubs!

    Well,just adding to my last post earlier today. Now I am really confused!
    This morning when I saw my Dr, I asked if we could do a progesterone as well as HCG level because I just had this odd feeling I may have ovulated soon after the surgery. I don't class myself as a woman who is really "in tune" with her own own body but geez, since my pregnancies and m/c's, I just keep getting"feelings" and they have been right EVERY time! I wouldn't really have a clue what it 'feels" like to ovulate (I barely ever even cycle naturally)and did not have any "scientific" basis to think i had , other than my temps had been quite high from about 1-2 days post surgery .I had just put it down to the inflammation etc post op but thought just wouldn't hurt to check.
    I think the Dr thought I was bit "odd" requesting this considering one of my major issues is not ovulating even in "normal" health. She considered it highly unlikely to have ocured after all the recent problems, surgery and I still had +ve HCG. She did request the test, however (probably to humour me!)
    Well, called later today for results and my prog level was 24.5! so definitely ovulated but to add to that, my HCG was still 11 -so dropped from 21 last week but still not 'normal". So you see my confusion - wow that I have ovulated on my own but how given HCG levels still up?? And why are HCG STILL up -I have now had THREE D&Cs and plenty of bleeding!
    Only spoke with recepionist who told me I just need to have them both repeated next week. Not sure now if I still should make appt with IVF nurse -if i ovulated last week then would get AF next week which would mean everything brought forward if we are to proceed with OI as planned -wonder if I can still go ahead if still regeristing HCG??
    Might have to call clinic again tomorrow. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Shan, shame about the BFN, glad you had a good anniversary.

    Good luck for the testers, hoping good things.

    Meredith, mmmm, strange one, can't imagine how you're feeling about that one. I guess just go ahead with the appointment & find out what you 'can ' do. Our bodies are strange things aren't they, lol.

    Take care all

    Meredith - my sister is in the same boat as you having had two miscarriages in a row, one in late October and one last week. She went off to the gynea yesterday and got the same "it's bad luck" response. I think the worst thing is that you want to know why, she is really worried she did something wrong etc. I've only had the one miscarriage and put it sown to being a chromosonal thing which apparently most are, but it does nothing for your nerves/stress levels when you start trying again. Glad to hear Wilbur is going along well.

    Shan - so sorry to hear about your results. You are having a rough trot at the moment, especially the bleeding, I only had that for 13 days and that was enough for me to be well and truly over it.I really hope things turn around for you :flower: I am glad your anniversary went well, it sounds like the perfect day to me

    I hope everyone is well, DH and I are off to see my gynea this morning about his second SA results, I am so nervous it isn't funny. If anything it just finalises everything. We talked about it a fair bit last night, which is more than the last time as we always thought he was OK and I had the problems. He was worried I wasn't ready for the news, but after the last couple of months dragging to have this second test, I don't think I could wait another day now. I have been very emotional and stressed all week so I am looking forward to just "getting on with it". We are actually celebrating Valentines Day tonight so hopefully I will have stopped acting like a mad woman and will be able to enjoy the night out.

    ARGHHH, I'm going nuts,

    Just rang the Dr's and yes my Beta reslts are back, but the receptionist said that she can't give me the results, and I'll have to wait another hour to call (when the Dr arrives), this is really giving me the $hits.

    I'm betting the results aren't good, anyway I don't like this new Dr, he looks like Riff Raff out of the Rocky Horror Show and has a personality of a dead fish.

    I'm still looking at the + on the HPT I got last week and its still there, blue as anything, no other symptoms though.

    I really hope you are all having a better day. I'll post later when I have some (good) news (I hope)

    Hi Ladies,

    Well I am a bit sad today. Yesterday after having some strong symptons for a few days I thought I would test. I did the test, put it down and watched it for a minute a BFP came up within 1 minute. OMG, my heart was going fast, I was shaking. Finally after all this time, I had one, a strong BFP. We were finally going to have our baby!!!!! I keep going back to look at the test, the lines still there, I hold it up it's still there!!! Then I go back again and look - line GONE!!! Why is the line gone?? What's going on?? It doesn't come back. I wait until this morning and test with fmu - BFN.

    Shezz,
    Abit of time out of the real world does wonders for the soul. Hope you find the answers to what to do whilst you relax! I was just sitting here thinking lol it is a sad fact. That I'm going to get another Embie frozen bill for $100 do I just bite the bullett and do the FET cycle. Ahh it is all too hard. I'm wondering where we find all this strength to keep going back and be prodded and poked. I was laying in bed this morning and looked at the crook in my arm and saw about 40 divit marks where I have had bt's to tell me that they were BFN!! talk about war wounds. Physically I can deal with it..emotionally not too sure whether I am that strong still
    I now appreciate my DH nagging at me

    I think I will wait a bit longer for a blood test, this got DH all excited and harder for me than getting a BFN is upsetting him iykwim. Still have a few postitive symptoms, so I wait another week and see if AF shows up!!

    My sister made an interesting observation once (she has IVF twins) that infertility is dealt to those who can deal with it, who do have the strength to pick up and keep going and she's right. This forum is full of amazing strong women and when I think about the people in my life who don't have to deal with these issue I realise that maybe I am better equipped than them. Only you and DH can decide whether the time is right but from what little I know of you you are strong enough.

    Thanks Shez
    You know we are all in different boats trying to get to the beautiful island of parenthood, sometimes I felt I was in the cheapest tinniest dingy around..lol lets hope next cycle we are in the luxury jetboat.
    Lil Chookie, I agree!! Hang on to those symptoms again I am going to say I had 2 BFN day before bloodtest with Eliza...worse point of my life and within 36hrs happiest time. Symptoms are great..I hope you have sore bb's and feeling blah.

    hey shez...i really admired what you just wrote...but it kinda upset me in a way as well.

    we werent strong to start with but we had to be strong. we didnt have a choice.

    well sorry i cant speak for everyone else but thats how i feel at the moment. i dont wanna be strong but i have to be.

    does that make sense?
