    Jo I'm so pleased that everything went well for you with the IUI. I have everything crossed that you have a bfp to announce in 2 weeks.



    BG How cute do those little furbabies sound. I bet ther are keeping you very busy. All the best with the injections sweet.I hope they don't hurt too much.

    BW Not long to go now until your next appointment. I hope all is giong well with you.

    As for me I think af is on her way. I've been having a few symptoms which I usually get before she arrives . Oh well if that happens I'll be going to register for IUI next week.

    Appointment is scarily close now! It felt like it just dragged to get to only one week left, and now this week is flying by! I've now lost 3kg since the last appointment - I'm going to need a whole new wardrobe at this rate! It's actually a little scary - I stayed constant at 65kg for ages, and then when I got sick I slowly crept up. I'm now back to 66kg, but I feel like continuing to eat this way will make my weight continue to drop... at what point does being underweight start to become a problem? For some strange reason, I just don't want to go lower than that 65kg limit. At the moment, I'm managing to dig out some of my smaller size 12 clothes and fit into them again, the idea of maybe being able to fit into a 10 again (which I don't think I have been able to since I was 20!) is a little confronting.

    BW - i guess you probably need to look at your BMI - it's hard to decided based on weight what underweight will be for you.

    Mako - injections are a breeze. no pain, no side effects, no issues at all - yay! as for fur babies- maybe not so easy!!! when we got hem on friday, they whad very distinct personalities - she was quiet, he was mischievious. had our nieces out on saturday, and each girl took a liking to a different kitten - now she is obnoxious (she's been in trouble for biting my toes so many times...) and he is little more than a sook. he sleeps all the time, cries if we leave the room without him.... but they're both so very cute... SCRAP THAT - tennessee just decided he wanted to type something on the forum for you all - time to sign off for a while and give my purring little kitty cats some attention!

    Hi there,
    Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    BW - all the best for your appointment, & I know what you mean about losing weight being scary.
    I have also been quite thin but over the last 6 months I have lost even more weight & I'm not doing anything different.
    I am actually trying to eat lots to put on weight & I keep getting the 'have you lost more weight' comment & little do people know I'm trying to put it on so that my body is healthy when I do become pg.
    I myself feel a little scared that this could be a reason for me not falling pg although f/s has not said this is the case.

    BG - well done with doing the injections on your own, I didn't need to do that which I am quite glad of mind you.
    How long do your injections last for?

    Mako - I hope your wrong & af is not on it's way, on the other hand I can tell you IUI is nothing to be scared of so if it has to be you will be fine.

    Well I am only 2dpo & already it's driving me nuts, I guess it will go quicker once I go back to work tomorrow.
    I have this horrible feeling though that I'm going to be pretty upset this cycle if it doesn't result in pg (which I know it probably wont) because this time everything was right, the egg was there with millions of sperm so if it doesn't work will anything?
    I guess I'm just being a little paroniod atm when you ttc naturaly & it doesn't work you can sometimes justify it by saying well maybe we got O time wrong.etc.

    Thanks for listening.

    HI Jo - i know exactly what you mean about paranoia - i'm thinking the same kinds of thoughts - we will KNOW when the egg is released, the sperm WILL be put right where it needs to be - so if it doesn't take, is it something i've done wrong? i'm living my life to the letter of what the FS has told me - and yet i am so scared it won't take! i guess it's the sort of thing we're all gonna go through at different times. i guess i just want the next few weeks over and done with so that i know whether everything has worked or not (i'm so not a patient person)!

    as for me - injections started last friday, have b.t this friday, and then probably u/s this weekend. everything should be said and done by the middle of next week (i hope so - por DH is dealing with the idea of abstinence for "the cause" - but with valentines day also being the anniversary of when we got together, it will feel wrong to say no!). we've been guaranteed that it will all be over and done with by the end of next week (woo hoo - wedding anniversary is safe!!)

    have a week of leave this week - my employer has (finally) been nice to me and agreed to push up my leave to give me time to recover properly from my issues the past couple of weeks, which is really really good - only downside for me is that i now have a week of waiting to find out if my body is responding to the injections - and no work to distract me!

    Hi ladies I thought I would just pop in and see how everyone is doing?

    BW- Good luck with your FS appointment.

    Mako- Honey I hope you are wrong about thinking that AF is on her way. Lets hope she doesn't show her face but if she does hang in there and good luck if you decide to start IUI.

    Well as you can see by my ticker I am already up to 62 days (BW I know you can feel my pain). I keep praying that I may get AF to give me a sign that maybe something is happening in there but I know the chances of that happening are very slim. I am enjoying the break to some degree sometimes I feel really strong again but then there are times where my heart still breaks that I can't fall PG naturally. Even with a break there is no way that feeling will ever dissapear. Sorry ladies I didn't mean to be negative but I just needed to come back and speak to my BB girs after the way I have been feeling over the last two days.

    I hope everyone else is doing really well and there are some BFP waiting in the wings.

    Love to you all.

    Kate, I do know so how you feel - in every single aspect of that, not just the stupidly long cycles.

    Sometimes I could sit and just cry knowing that there's no chance of us ever having a surprise pregnancy, knowing that we are going to have to go through hell to get each and every one of our children... it's so completely heartbreaking. Especially when I'm confronted by how unbelievably fertile the rest of my family is. Many, many coming your way, Kate.

    My specialist appointment is scarily close right now. One more day at work - and then it's here!

    Hey all,

    Ktgirl - sorry your feeling so down, life really does suck sometimes & it just is so easy for many.
    Fingers crossed you will get af soon.

    BW - not long to go now for your appointment, I know what you mean about family being so fertile, makes everything seem even more unfair especially when they have no idea what you are going through.

    BG - have a nice week off, I have a feeling your going to drive yourself nuts! lol

    KT - i completely understand how you feel with your long cycles - for me, before intervention, i could go nine or 10 months - at first it wasn't an issue cos i wasn't TTC, but once we started that, i realised how much my body was working against us. knowing you're body isn't cooperating is just damn frustrating. i'm so glad to hear that you're feeling stronger during your break

    Jo/BW - i completely agree with how difficult it is when everyone around you seems to be extremely fertile - i'm waiting to find out about a couple of friends that are due this month - once they've popped, i'll have 11 friends that have given birth since the start of december - and none of them know about ofur issues TTC, so they keep asking when i'm going to join them as a new mum - very hard indeed. have become a bit of a bermit lately cos it's so hard to know how to react to constant baby conversations.

    Jo - don't see myself getting going crazy this week - started decluttering my wardrobe this afternoon - tomorrow i'm off to the dental surgeon to find out if i need surgery (i so hope not) - the rest of the week i'm not so sure - probably keep decluttering - i want everything sorted out in our room with the new furniture by the end of this week if at all possible!

    Ktgirl Its good to see you pop in again sweet. I'm sorry that you've been feeling down lately. I hope that your cycle decides to come to a close very soon. Take care hun and know that we are here for you when you need us

    BG Good luck with the decluttering. I have also been thinking about doing that lately too but haven't got any further that thinking about it lol. I hope all goes well for you at the dentist and you don't need surgery.

    BW How are you going sweet? I hope you're a bit more relaxed about this upcoming appointment. How's everything going at work so far? I hope the children are behaving themselves so far.

    Jo and Emmydee how are you both?

    Still no af yet. I really don't think she's far away though GRRRRR.

    HI there

    just a quick update from me. went to the dentist today hoping against hope that i'd get good news and everything could be finalised. not to be - have to have surgery to remove the abcess and infection - am being referred to surgeon for appointment next week. have been having a massive anxiety attack about the whole thing all day - appointment is tuesday - at this stage IUI is going to take place either monday or tuesday - i keep being told to relax and keep stress levels down - and then something like this happens! i just feel like something is gonna happen that's going to mess with the IUI cycle - anaesthetics can't be great for things - and it's been made worse by the fact that i've been told i'll probably need multiple surgaries - so if the IUI does take (which i so hope it does) - what impact will it have on a growing bubba??

    sorry for the vent, probably shoud have posted this in BooHoo room, but once i started typing, i couldn't stop.

    Hi everyone!

    Sorry I haven't been around much. Trying to limit thinking about this whole TTC business, so I don't stress out about it too much!

    BG -- So sorry to hear about the dentist! That sounds really stressful! The next few days will go by fast. I don't think there's any reason why the dental procedure should interfere at all with the effectiveness of the IUI, so I wouldn't worry about that at all.

    Mako -- I have my fingers crossed for you! I'm hoping you have a BFP soon!

    Jo -- I hope the 2ww goes by fast for you! It drives me crazy. I found that the best thing to do is just keep yourself occupied with other things as much as possible...

    Hi KTgirl -- I hear you about the long cycles. I had such high hopes that I'd ovulate on my own, after doing the clomid rounds. But nope. I think I'm on cycle date 60+ now. I stopped counting, awhile back.

    Hi BW -- hope everything is going well with you!

    As for me, I'm starting clomid tomorrow. I'm only on 50 mg, so I have a feeling it won't even work. In which case we have to up the dosage. Which means more side effects. I am really not too excited about it all, as you can tell...

    BG Sorry to hear that you have to have surgery. I hope everything goes extremely well for you with the IUI next week.I can't help with the question about anasthetics etc, sorry. I'm sure it will all work out the way you want it to hun.

    Emmydee Good luck with the clomid sweet. I hope a bfp is just around the corner for you.

    BW How did the appointment go?

    As for me I'm feeling very down and disappointed atm. AF has decided to visit me AGAIN. I was really hoping that this wouldn't happen this month . DH has told me that he wants us to try this cycle without any medication and no IUI as he somehow thinks we may become pregnant this way. I don't know why he thinks like this but I think this is what we'll do.
    Does anyone know of anyone who has fallen pregnant while having a little break from meds and intervention????

    Mako, so sorry to hear that AF arrived.

    My appointment went really well. I'm exhausted after a very long day, but the short story is that I started synarel tonight (not so bad!) and go back on the 19th to have blood tests and start injections. I'm feeling good and happy and amazingly calm about it all. Funnily enough, I felt slightly less freaked out by my first synarel huff than I was by my first clomid tablet.

    Now this tired little butterfly is off to bed...

    Mako - i'm so sorry to hear AF showed up. i'm sure it's possible for a natural pg to occur if you take a break from your meds for a cycle - and maybe your DH is like mine and it's hurting him to see how much this is getting to you and wants a break for you and your emotional sanity...

    Mako, I'm so sorry hon that AF showed up. I'm sure it's totally possible to get preggo on a break. It might be helpful to take a cycle off, just to get some perspective on everything. I took a cycle off, and, though I didn't get pregnant, it was great mentally just to take a break...

    Hey Mako

    So sorry to hear about AF.

    Just wanted to let you know that I've seen quite a few announcements of pregnancies over the last few months of LT TTC who had had breaks from meds...unfortunately I can't remember their names...but I wonder if you post a separate thread about it, you might get some encouraging responses...

    WIshing you all the best...for something you dearly deserve.

    Take care chickie!
