    Hi Everyone & welcome to all the newbies in here!!

    Its been awhile since I posted last but I have been popping in and reading all your posts, I just haven't really had much to say until now!!

    We had an appointment on Tuesday at the IVF clinic and tommorow we have orientation to learn about all the injections - looks like we will start our first antagonist cycle next week, I am a little bit freaked because I thought it would take ages to get everything started and now it's happening! I am also really excited that our chance of having a happy ending is a bit closer than before.

    Anyway I just wanted to pop in and say good luck to you all and send you lots and lots of , I am going to join the assisted conception thread aswell but I will be popping in here too.



    Thanks for all your support and kind words!

    Frustrated, thanks I know it is normal and good to let it out...I am glad I did...I just have a hard time having no control over anything and running uphill...

    I have been trying to sort out my feelings and realize that at the moment I feel an immense pressure to perform physically. To lose weight, stay sexy for my husband, get pregnant, carry a baby to term, breast feed, lose preg weight, go back to being sexy (for myself and my wardrobe!!!) then being strong physically for my babies etc...

    I tend to get carried away with thinking of it all at once and that night I just broke down. I am just very controlling as far as diet and excercise go and it is hard to have nothing budge and be told that I have to wait and see.

    Still no AF...Over 40 days now. I called my doc and he said that is not good. I have an appt next week, so he will do something about it...

    I'll keep you girls posted after my appt the 2nd...

    Just thought I would pop in and send everyone a message. I am feeling positive today.

    " Be strong and love yourself " Everything will hopefully fall into place.

    I knwo this is a hard time in all our lives but you have to keep positive.

    Good luck ,

    Hey Ladies, hope everyone enjoyed there weekend !

    Morning girls - well up to day 13 and have to start my O testing.

    I have just found out today I have rhematoid arthritis at the ripe old age of 31!! - although I pretty much knew already but my other specialist just confirmed - so more medication. The good thing is she tested me for other things as it is linked to mis/c and I don't apparently carry that gene. So it could be worse!

    Having one of those days when I can't understand why my body is not working normally - feels like I am falling to pieces and feeling a bit hypercondriac! because it is all happening at once!

    Anyway, just wanted to vent!

    Thanks for the lovely positive message Cony - brightened up my day

    Hope all is well

    Ok, so Yesterday was day 11 and for about 10 minutes last night its felt like i was ovulating. ( I think its been a few months since i have ), but only for that 10 mins, and like i said it was only day 11.. Is this possible, from what i remember i had pains ( OV pains ) off and on for an entire day.
    Also some advice please...????? What day would you suggest for me and dh to Um make use of this month .. If you no what i mean.. 1st time on chlomid and trying to understand it all and hopefully make it a success the 1st time..

    look forward to reading some good news from you all girls.. Praying for each & everyone of u..

    Frustrated, has your doctor not told you when to start BDing??? If not, go to the supermarket and by an ovulation kit, ASAP - makes like less stressful! I had no idea before when I was. Apparently you can as early as day 11. On the day you get a positive for "O" you BD that night and the next night - so I am advised to do!

    Hi everyone,

    just had a quick read and no worries becc just thought I would share the positives as well as the negatives.

    Frustrated my FS told me to take notes before I went on the the Clomid.

    day 5 take tablets for 5 days then on the 10th day for 10 day to go for our lives if you know what I mean....

    I think we missed maybe 3 days all up but just waiting for day 30 to come now not far.

    Good luck with that

    Default Day one on clomid

    Hello,I have just taken my first clomid tablet on day 2 of my cycle.I have been ttc for 5 years but only in august last year my reason for infertility was found and hopefully corrected. I have son nearly 12 years old so its a huge gap but well worth the wait when it happens. Does anyone have really bad mood swings whilst on clomid? I have had it before but a few years back whilst undergoing ivf so my memory is bad.I want to warn DH if ill be cranky all month or just while on meds.

    Unhappy clomid side effects

    Thanks Bec,I usually become quite moody around ovulation even without Clomid so i dread to think what i will be like.

    Default In pain

    Im on day 16 now & am so certain that i iovulated yesterday ( Day 15 ). I no i have ovulated before just not every month ( Hopefully being on the chlomid will make it every month ). I had pretty bad o pains for a few hours yesterday then my back got extremely achy and is still today, does this happen to anyone else, i dont remember my back aching like this before from it. Would the chlonid make it worse???
    ......want baby 2.... Some good advice from the girls before for me, Take the chlomid at night so you sleep thru the worst of the mood swings workd wonders for me.. HOpe this helps.
