    Ellymoe - great news and fingers crossed.

    Violethope - we are on the same path right now. I had a stopped cycle 3 days in to my first injection process, after getting shingles. Now all good and this week I start my injections again. Fingers crossed again.

    I have to travel for work this week and hope there's no hassle with getting the injections etc on the plane......

    Very inspiring to read some good results happening.

    My mum asked me again today when I was planning on starting a family so I decided to come clean and tell her about the pcos. I think I put a dampener on what had been a very fun weekend for her. She felt terrible about all the times she had asked me about my baby plans and asked me why I hadn't told her about it. It's not the easiest thing to bring into conversation "I reproductively challenged. How have you been?" lol.

    Anyway she said that she wanted to tell my Dad and he isn't very good at keeping a secret so I hope I haven't made a mistake by telling her. She told me she would swear him to secrecy but I'm still concerned. She did say that my Aunty on dad's side had troubles with her ovaries and wasn't having periods (which to me sounds like pcos) and I was wondering where the pcos came from because it can be hereditary can't it?

    I just don't want my whole family to feel sorry for me so I hope it doesn't get out but it did feel good to finally get it out in the open to some extent. I told her all I can do at the moment is wait for that pesky AF to arrive so the show can go on.

    How many of you ladies have told family about your pcos?

    I've only told my sister but did not mention it was also about me TTC. just related it to my difficulty losing weight and super long/irregular cycles. Other than that have only told one close friend, but she didn't even know what PCOS was, but she's very supportive and also knows we're TTC. Of course DH knows and saw it for himself onthe monitor when FS did the scan and diagnosed. Have not told any family about TTC.

    Hi Mrs JD, it is good to be on the injectables journey with you! I hope you have better luck this time. I am on my 4th day today and feeling pretty good. I'm also going away this week and having to fly so a bit worried about the whole needles on a plane thing! I rang the airport and they said the little needles are fine but the big ones (for the trigger shot) are not usually allowed without a note from the doctor stating that you will need them during the flight. I think I'll just pack those ones in my suitcase and carry the puregon stuff through with me. Would be slightly embarassing to get to security and be called out on it!

    Familyplanner, I have told all of my family now, they have been great. My MIL was a little frustrating to talk to about it as she wanted to fix everything via her skills at using Google, which bugged me, but she is better about it now. I have also told a couple of close friends at work as I often need support on days I go to the clinic before work. I find it easier woth people knowing about it as they provide support and understanding through the whole thing. It's a personal choice though and I totally get why some people like to keep it private. Good luck with it, I hope your Dad keeps it under his hat!

    Does anyone know how important it is that you inject at the same time each night? I plan on asking my FN this week anyway but just wondered. I'm going to a wedding on Saturday and I will most likely still be injecting, I have been doing it at 9:30pm and was told to do it at the same time each night. Not too keen on carrying my kit with me in my clutch bag! Also worried about the temperature that it might get to. Tricky situation!

    Ellymoe, so glad to hear you O'd! I am super hopeful that this will be your month!!! GOOD LUCK!

    I hope all those in the TWW are doing well and keeping occupied. Looking forward to hearing some good news soon!

    Familyplanner - my mum has it, and we suspect her grandmother had it as well. My mum knows about my PCOS but not about my endo, I always decided that I wouldn't tell family about TTC until I was 12 weeks pregnant, so they might suspect but don't know.

    Thanks for all the wishes peoples . We need some more BFPs in this thread and I hope to be one of them! Good luck everyone

    Familyplanner, my mum and close friends I have PCOS and that we are TTC. Only a few really close friends and my mum (as she lives with us) know about hubby's swimmer problems. We're not close to his family at all, so they have no clue. As we've been married for 8 years, it's nice *not* to have people ask, 'When are you having a baby?' I guess it's different for everyone. My close girlfriends at work know, and so does one of my male coworkers. He knows as the first few months of clomid made me quite *****y/emotional/bucket of tears. I had to tell him as we literally sit 3 meters from each other. I do regard him as a good friend, so that made it easier. Whatever works for you will be right.

    I've told both of my parents, my brother and sister in law, and my fiance has told his family, although I don't know how much detail he's gone into with them - I don't think he's gone into much detail. I've told my best mate (who's a bloke) and he's actually been the best about it - he wants all the details - what medication I'm on, how it works - he even asked me specific details about how many immature follicles each ovary had on it at my last scan! He's obviously looked into it when I told him it was PCOS!

    Familyplanner - my family have known my entire life. I got diagnosed with it when I was 17 (I'm now 35). I guess having lived with it all my life it was easy for me to tell people. Toughest thing is now that I'm married and we're working on our little bundle of joy - people keep asking that dreaded question of 'when you having children'.......bit awkward telling them, but it's a good way to stop the questions.

    Violethope - let me know what the response is for the injection being at the same time each day. I wasn't told anything like that, but was sure I read it somewhere (in amongst the thousands of things I've read on IUI).

    I got my letter from the specialist today to let me take the kit on board - I'm going to pack it in my checked in luggage. The nurse told me that as long as the drugs are kept cold there is no problem, if they aren't then they need to be used within a month. That might help some people.

    this is the one.....

    Question - how do you put the history of where you're at, etc at the bottom of the posts i.e. DH 33; Me 35......on IUI July etc etc.

    Hi Ladies

    Just popping in quickly to say hi to everyone. I won't do personals as I have only had a brief read as just about to eat dinner. I'll be keeping my for quite a few of you this week. I'll definitely be back to check how everyone is going.

    hi family planner - i have told 2 of my gf 1 who i started the ttc journey with and she looked at her hubby and got preg which was a bit upsetting for me but at the same time i was over the moon. and another gf who already has a baby - so both have no clue what im going thru but they are very happy to sit and listen and offer cuddles when im a miserable wreck about being impatient haha. my mum knows i had an appt at the fertility specialist but she doesnt know about the clomid or that we are very actively ttc. just easier to keep it quiet with her as she doesnt really understand and i get impatient with trying to explain it so its better if i just keep quiet.
    all work knows is that im having blood tests.

    ellymoe -

    kedgie - how did you go with ur BT have you O'd? any good news?

    AFM - i hav an appt with hollywood fertility on thursday yay so hopefully i get somewhere in aug. and DH is going to the gp tomorrow night to get a referral for a SA that he can do at a normal pathology instead of paying 385 at the specialist for one.
