    Deb I really hope you don't end up needing that trigger shot and you just missed the LH surge. I hope my specialist turns out to be as wonderful as this one that you've found! I'm getting so excited about the appointment coming up so quickly!

    I've already been told that he's great with being available for questions via email after the first appointment... so I'm feeling pretty confident. I was chatting with the friend who hated him over dinner tonight, and she said that even though his bad side manner kinda sucked, that he is at least very thorough... I'm prepared to sacrifice a bit of bed-side manner to get my questions answered and everything checked thoroughly!

    What's your doctors name Butterfly?

    I'm going with David Knight for now. I'm keeping Dr S up my sleeve for later, if Dr Knight can't answer my questions.

    It may sound awful, but it's for the simple reason that next generation fertility has a fee structure that we can afford if we get to IVF, while there's no way we could afford IVF Australia's fees.

    BW, are the fee structures that different between Next Gen and IVF Australia??

    Oh crud!

    I've just checked the websites again, and it seems that IVFA and NGF are actually very similar... I've been getting IVFA and SIVF confused - SIVF is the one with scary charges! They seem to charge double what the other two clinics do...

    Now I'm starting to wonder if I should just cancel and go with Dr S... but there's the whole convenience of location factor... Crud!

    Sorry if I've confused you, Willow... I've confused myself as well!

    LOL, that's OK, I thought that you might be getting confused with Sydney IVF - there's no way we'd go with them either!! I was told there wasn't much difference at all between most of the clinics after Sydney IVF. Westmead Fertility Centre is the cheapest by far apparently as they are a not for profit organisation. We will consider them if we have a few unsuccessful cycles with IVFA.

    But still, you are right about convenience. You can't be trekking into the city every time you want to see your Dr because it would mean days off work etc. That will become a major inconvenience when you are actually doing a cycle and have to have blood tests, u/sounds etc etc. I wouldn't be doing it either if I didn't work there.

    So don't panic, I still think you've got the best plan in place. See Dr Knight first, and then perhaps do a one off consult with Dr S if you are still concerned about the immunology issues.

    Hi everyone!

    Flowerchild -- did you go to your u/s yet? When I was on clomid this last cycle (no trigger shot), I ovulated on CD 17. I heard clomid makes you ovulate later?

    How is everyone else doing? Willow, did AF show yet? I hope not!

    I took another test this morning (13 dpo). Don't know why I keep testing, but this a.m., my temp was still up, so I though, hey, maybe. But, no another BFN. I think my temp is up this morning, probably cuz I slept badly last night. sigh....

    On a positive note, I hung out with my newly preggo friend yesterday, and I am proud of myself -- I wasn't jealous at all, and was happy for her (took a lot of mental preparation beforehand tho). I still haven't brought myself to return my other newly preggo friend's phone calls tho -- mainly because she wasn't even trying to get preggo, and I am worried she will be insensitive re my TTC issues.

    Willow, I tried to read your vent thread, but couldn't find it. I was wondering what happend with your best friend. Thanks for sharing though. It makes me feel so much better that I'm not the only person who feels these things.

    Hi butterfly -- how things going with you? hope you had a good weekend.

    Good Morrning

    Flowerchild I'm wishing you all the best for your scan today.

    BW Isn't it amazing how these fertility companies price vary so much between one and other. I've got some prices here from SIVF and Hunter IVF.
    I hope your appointment goes well this week for you.

    Willow Has AF arrived yet? If so I hope she's being as nice as possible to you.

    Hello to everyone else. I'll pop in again later and do more personals. Hope you all had a good weekend.

    Not much is happening with me atm. Took last clomid tablet yesterday. Had a great time at Robbie Williams last night.

    Emmydee, I posted in the LT TTC & AC Vent forum. You have to ask the mods for access to this thread. Basically, my best friend is prg with her second set of twins in 3 years (both IVF prgs) and is just really painful to deal with most of the time. Seems she has forgotten very quickly how hard this can be.

    Thanks for asking girls, but no, af is still playing mind games!! Grrrrr. I don't know what is going on. Either the clomid has lengthened my LP for the first time (bit late now!!) or this is going to be a weird period because of my surgery.

    I've had spotting on and off for 3 days though so I am definately not prg, before any of you go getting excited!! LOL.

    I am expecting her to turn up in force today at some stage. I have had cycles this long before but it is unusual for me these days. Still I'm only on cd29 so not that unusual.

    Morning ladies.

    Flowerchild- Good luck today with your scan. Let us know how you get on.

    Willow- I guess it is a good thing that AF still hasn't shown up that way you timing might work out perfectly to start with IVF in the new year.

    Mako- Glad to hear that you have finished another round of Clomid. Now we start imagining nice big follies for you

    Emmydee- Very proud of you. It is really hard sometimes to come to terms with these things and move on but it is a credit to yourself that you have. I have recently been faced with this myself when a friend of mine who had been trying for like 5 minutes got PG but I guess everything happens for a reason and perhaps someone is trying to make us stronger woman and my Mum always says to me that when I get my baby it will be so special because we tried so hard to get there in the first place and I am sure you would feel the same.

    BW- I bet you are getting excited about your first appointment. Maybe like Willow has said go to this FS and see what he is like you might find that you have a completly different opinion than what your friend does. Good luck.

    Well I am on my third day of injections now and feeling great. No side effects which is a bonus. Have three days left and then have a blood test on Saturday to see where we are at. Hope everyone had a great weekend. Hi to everyone that I have missed.

    Deb - how are you going? Excuse me for saying this and please feel free to tell me to shut up and go away but I think you are stressing out a bit a t the moment. You may not "O" on CD14 but you are going to "O" (hopefully you probably already have). Your posts recently have seemed as if you are stressing a lot and I can't help but feel that the follie chasing is adding to it. I know how you feel and the need you have but hun, please don't add to the pressure. I wish I could give you a hug and hold your hand.
    As I said, if I have spoken out of turn just tell me to butt out.
    I am thinking of you,
    Debbie

    Thanks, Willow. I still feel a bit of a goose, though! I'm thinking pretty much the same thing about Westmead Fertility Centre, too. It drives my DH crazy, but I've got to always form a rough plan in my head - they are subject to change with very little notice! DH prefers to not plan at all, but if there is a plan he will stick to it without variation. Currently I'm thinking that I at least know Dr Knight is thorough. I'll be using him to make sure everything has been tested that I should be tested for, grabbing myself an appointment with Dr S if the immunology stuff appears that it could be a problem, and then probably switch to WFC if my first cycle is unsuccessful.

    So... Dr Knight and Dr S to figure out all that can be figured out, then switch to WFC if I end up having to do IVF long term.

    I can hardly believe the appointment is so close now!

    A quick hello to everyone... I'm in a bit of an excited and jumpy mood and don't have the patience to sit down and type out personals... I read everyone's posts from work, though!

    BW, I hear you, without a game plan in my head these last 6 months I would have lost my mind I think!!

    Well, af has finally arrived. So back to square one for me. I think I will count today as cd1. Bit iffy though which worries me cause i need to have hormone levels checked by bt on cd2 or cd3 this cycle and it's important that they are done at the right time. I think I'll leave it for wednesday which could be a drama cause from tomorrow I have both my DD and my 8 month old niece on my days off work and I haven't yet organised a way to get us mobile (ie a pram that accomodates both of them)! Should be interesting!!

    Hi Ktgirl, I'm praying so hard that this is the month for you. I hope those injections don't hurt too much. Ohh the things we must do hey. I think your mum is right in what she says too. Thats how I think sometimes just to help get us through this journey. Anyway take care ok.

    Monnie How are you sweet? I hope you're travelling ok.

    Pollyanna How are you doing? Not long now til the b'ding fest begins and not long til your birthday. Ooohhh how exciting for all this happening on the same day for you

    Willow Good luck with the b/t. I hope af will be kind to you this cycle sweet.

    Flowerchild Any news yet hun. Sorry I'm stalking you a bit today.

    Hi to all. I hope you've had a good Monday.
