    Hi guys sorry to whinge again but wow I'm losing it!!
    I got home from work today to find that I had inadvertently left the fridge door open all day!! No biggy right a bit of food that can be replaced?? WRONG..41 progesterone pessaries @ $3 each melted and leaking + 2 full boxes of crinone that I didn't use after the fresh cycle was cancelled!! So a blubbering mess I had to get my Mum to drive me to the Dr office so I could buy $123 worth of pessaries!!! UuuuuuuuuuRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    Ohhhhh, Shez, that is amazing in it's own little way. At least we know things can only get better for you. Think of it as a story to tell your little-un. Good luck for the rest of the cycle.

    Jane, wishing the best for you tomorrow.

    Take care

    Shez - Oh noooooooo, that sucks..... ](*,)

    Jane - Good luck tomorrow, I hope everything goes well. :luck:

    I am a little bummed, I got AF today, for some reason I really thought this month was going to be the one, but I guess I was wrong.

    Melbo - I forgot in my earlier message to say thanks for your message from Sunday, it is great to hear a positive story and I wish you lots of luck with your pregnancy. Your timing was perfect - I needed cheering up, sometimes things seem a little hopeless!

    Hi everyone

    Not alot to report. Jane the doc said the only way to be sure it is blocked is if they did a lap and he doesn't want to do one as it bears no impact on the IVF. He also said it may not even be blocked, the dye could have gone down just the one tube!! I personally am not too worried because I had a HYCOSY which is designed for tubes and that was all clear.

    I'm just concentrating on getting ready to start again. I'm trying to be positive and eating well, taking my Royal Jelly and supplements. I'm going to tell myself this is going to work. It just has to!!!!

    Enough about me, Jane how did your lap go?? Not too bad I hope.

    Sorry about the drugs Shez. Sometimes the smallest things just set you off, and that is not so small. Chin up!!

    Hi Girls.

    Shez - what a bummer. Theres enough cost involved as it is, but to have to re-stock is a real pain. Surely things can only get better from now on....


    Well the clinic rang me back about metformin, but they want me to go next week and do a 'Fasting Glucose Tollerance Test' before prescribing the metformin, because if there is an all clear from the test then the metformin won't do anything.

    I'm still lightly bleeding, so thats a pain. I've been using the OPK's now for 4 days. Still no positive (i'm on CD17), but last night i got some really really good ferns on the maybe baby. They were so strong and clear. Never had one that good on it before, so you never know. Have been DTD though just in case. It's funny.... when DH and i get busy, the bleeding seems to stop, much to his relief, and then starts up again after. Sorry if TMI, but i just think it's really weird.....

    Hope you all have a great day....

    Mrs Mac - I have never had a OPK work for me even months when I have been doing them and then had tests done that have shown I have o'd.

    Thanks for all the well wishes for my shop, I am just so happy it is opened after all my planning!!!

    Hi everyone

    The lap went extrememely well. I stayed in overnight so they could pump me up with the anti nausea which worked this time quite well. I had a difference anethetists as well and he gave me full intravenious? (I cant spelly by the way) instead of the gas, I never knew they gave you gas to keep you asleep with GA.

    I had endo which had formed into adhesions around my right ovary, endo on my bowel near my left ovary and behind the cervix, which I imagine is why I have been having problems with pain DTD. A few days off work and I will be a new woman I hope.

    The other good news is that my tubes were clear and there was evidence that I had ovulated this cycle, so I have come out very positive and ready to tackle what lies ahead with the reproductive specialist in a couple of weeks.

    Thanks for all your kind wishes, I was thinking of you all last night having all gone through these as well and so much more, it really gives me stength to draw on.

    Oh ~Jane~...... =D> I'm soooo glad that everything went well. Especially the bit about the clear tubes. Pity about the endo, but if you're a new woman at the end of it, then that's the main thing. You never know, now that you've had a good clean out, this next cycle could be the one.
    Fingers crossed that it is.

    Jane Good for you with the lap. I've never suffered with it but I know troublesome endo is you poor thing. Once they remove it for you, how long are you clear for? Are you definitely having assisted conception or are you going to carry on naturally now you have a bit of relief from the endo?

    As for me I'm working hard on getting in really good shape for the big event. I've been having reflexology and I have to say ladies it is amazing!! I haven't felt this good in months and I mean that. I asked her to work on my stress levels initially and to help fertility. I mean the second she puts her hands on me, I relax totally. I fell asleep this time!!! Anyway I think you all should try it. During stimulation they can help with the ovaries and syptoms you may experience. After embryo transfer they can help with the blood flow to the uterus. I've got a good feeling about this next attempt. It WILL work this time.

    Also I have been taking Royal Jelly and it really id good for the skin so I'm going to assume that it's working for the other reason I'm taking it which is improving egg quality.

    Sorry for the ranting but WOW I feel great!!

    Sararms - with DH having such bad results with his seman analysis it looks as though we will be still getting assistance. He has low count, high abnormalities and low motility and they don't like our chances by ourselves. I was at the end of my rope with the endo lately missing heaps of work and feeling sick all the time.

    Sounds as though you are feeling much better which is really good to hear.

    I hope everyone else is well, I'll get onto some personals when I feel a bit better, I am rather out of sorts tonight.

    Hi Everyone,

    Jane - I am so glad to hear everything went well with the lap, I have been feeling a thousand percent better since mine and can function like a normal human being! Hopefully the same will happen for you, I have my fingers crossed and I hope you are feeling better soon.

    Jane my husband also has a low sperm count. It really gets him down sometimes. He tends to take everything on himself. I remember last year being really quite difficult and he felt really inadequate. I didn't matter what I did to try and improve his mood. It's so easy to forget what the men have to go through isn't it. Although we have all the physical side to contend with, the men, especially if they are the contributing problem. Unfortunately for my man, his problem is due to the fact he was born premature. His testicles did not descend as they should which is common for prem babies, but nobody did anthing about it until e was about 7 and they didn't finish with him till he was 11. Ideally they like to operate before the age of 1, so you can imagine... That caused some preblems between us and his folks, you know blaming them for the fact he didn't have the op soon enough to have a normal count. Now we just focu on what we do to help the situation by getting him to take his follic acid, zinc, vit C and Royal Jelly. My doctor has always said though it doesn't matter what a man has in term of count once you go for IVF, all the onus is on the quality of eggs and the uterus. SO you can imagine how I thanked him for putting all the burden on me ha ha

    I really hope you feel better soon, and that you experience of AC is a positive one

    Wow, I relate to you girls very well.
    My DH also has a low sperm count and the Dr said 2 1/2 years that he had low count, high abnormalities and low motility. And that it is going to be hard for us, but not to go back.
    Arghhh, So have moved elsewhere and getting a nicer Dr soon.
    DH is on Multi-Vitamins and Zinc Tablets, So hopefully that helps.
    I am finally Ovulating... Yey!!!
    So wish me luck for trying to catch this eggie. BD'ing like crazy... hehehe

    I hope we get some more BFP's in here soon. Good Luck Girls.

    Hi Bambi, did your doc tell you that your dh had low count and just leave it at that? Did they do the second round of tests on him as well? sometimes it is worth looking further into these things.
