    Hi ladies,

    Hope everyone is well.

    Becks - I am soooooo sorry to hear your sad news. It is just awful when you don't get the result that you wished for. I had a very similar experience first time around - only I didn't get any frosties. I had the benefit though of being told by my one of the nurses that the first round is like a practice round - they then get to know how your body works. I know it doesn't make it any easier but thought it might help. I also had the awful thought that perhaps I had miscarried too at that time but was assured it was all normal.

    Tk - glad you are hanging in there. The rest will probably do you both some good even I know you are probably a little anxious to get started. Unfortunately I can't make coffee on 18th August cause I am at a work conference that day. Perhaps the following weekend or I can do Sunday next weekend instead.

    Kate - I am sure your AF will arrive soon. Your body has been through so much that it is probably just saying that it needs a little more time. Nature has a funny way of ensuring we make the decision that is intended.

    Jen - how are you going? Is your mum still here? How are you feeling?

    Afm - well I had a little scare last night. I woke up at about 2 am to go to the bathroom and when I wiped I found a little blood. It was like a clear pinkish color and it freaked me out . Lest to say I had no sleep for the rest of the night. We are staying at peppers in kingscliff for my nieces wedding so it is not ideal timing. I got up this morning and there was a little brown discharge and a little more pinkish blood. I called the nurse and she said she didnt think it was anything to worry about but told me there is nothing they can do if you are going to miscarry. Eek! I almost fell over. She has also increased my progesterone to 3 presseries a day and an hour lie down time each time. She a
    has also brought my 7 week scan forward to this Friday to see whether everything is ok. She also said to rest up. I haven't been resting as much as I should be cause I have a huge matter on at the moment that doesn't make it easy to rest. At least I have this weekend and Monday off so can rest up for now. It seems to have eased a little cause the last few times i have been to the toilet there has been nothing. Please keep your fingers crossed for me ladies that it is nothing to worry about. A little bit stressed at the moment - hang in there little one

    Hey Calli - I hope you have nothing to worry about and the extra progesterone does the trick.

    I think you're right about my AF not coming being my body's way of telling me something. It's day 38 now and still nothing. Had really bad cramps Thurs night/Friday but been ok today...

    PS: My sister-in-law is down at Salt for a wedding too - it was meant to be on the beach but due to erosion got moved to another beach (coincidence if you're at the same one!!!)

    TK - I admire you for getting your boxing on!!! I did some at PT yesterday morning and can hardly lift my arms! Nothing like exercise to get you out of a funking mood!

    Becks how are you doing???

    Hi all,

    Calli: Its just never easy is it. I would try not to worry, particularly if your nurse doesnt seem worried, plus your blood test levels are amazing. From what I remember Kristen had a few scares and now she has passed her 12 week scan. I will have fingers and everything crossed for you that there is no more bleeding and that your friday scan brings joyful news - am sure it will, try not to worry.

    Jen: How are you? Am guessing you are probably busy with your Mum being here, hope she is your lucky charm again. Did you get to transfer two on last Tuesday. Did you end up with more in the freezer? 6 out of 7 fertilizing seems really good. Whens your blood test? Hope one and even better two are snuggling in there tight. I wouldnt mind two at all. I am thinking about changing to Ong again. Ive even started another thread Monash versus City fertility but might not have done it right but anyway the point I was wondering, do you get to see Ong ever out of work hours like before 8:30 of a morning. People at work dont know I do IVF, my current fs is really flexible and am just wondering how it would work out if I changed, would I have to tell work (I dread this thought). Hoping for a positive bood test for you. Enjoy the time with your mum.

    Kate- I hope AF comes soon - there sure is alot of waiting in this baby business. Good you can do a frozen and avoid the jabs when it does come

    Bec- sorry for your loss - whether its a bfn or misscarriage, when its something you want so badly, I think we all understand how much it hurts.

    TK: Good on you both with the exercise - I could do with your motivation

    AFM: I had embryo transfer last saturday, it was a BB embryo and 40% of it died in the thawing process (which to me doesnt sound great) so I have been telling myself all week not to expect this one to work - it would be insane if it did seeing our perfect AA didnt stick around so have been working on not getting excited about this one but couldnt help myself and did a hpt this morning (i got issues). It was negative and I am just so ****ed off truthfully. Tonight Im missing a hens party because I dont want the "why are you not drinking question" coming up, I feel like my life is forever on hold, I am always missing things cause Im maybe pregnant and then I never ever am. Anyway enough of a *****, blood test is on tuesday so will know for sure then. We do names do too - we call this one halfa, cause he 40% died in the thaw (dont know if thats bad) - would have been sooooooo good if halfa could have just made it. I am thinking about changing to Ong - I just dont know about city fertility - they are all lovely and my fs is extra nice and accessible. I often have 7:30 in the morning appointments before work and 6:00 at night after work and how many specialists would do that plus he seems to genuinely really care about us. My concerns are: what will we do differently next time? seems like we are doing the same and that didnt work last time ? do you think it is just a numbers game with a 25% chance pregnancy each time and eventually you will get there? Or do you think it is best to get a tailored approach for you. Jen I noticed Ong has you on all sorts of stuff previously so maybe he is more patient specific? I also wonder, out of 10 mature eggs (14 eggs total) we ended up with 1 really good and 1 ok that we froze - is that normal for other clinics (realize it could also be me)? I had hoped for higher than 2 out of 10. And with the one we did freeze, it nearly died in the thaw (40% died) if it gets to 50% they dont do the transfer? Is this reflective of other clinics? Agggh - decisions to be made after Tuesday.... Sorry for the long pretty self obsessed post. Hopefully everyone has a good week, will be thinking of you all x

    Hi Girls

    Hope everyone is doing well. Just a quick hello from me and just read the last few posts and I just had to reply.

    Sandy - Dr Ong is fantastic. I highly recommend him. DH and I feel he went over and above to get us pregnant esp when I had all those complications during this pregnancy. I even had the nurses ringing me to see how I was going between appointments. He also does early apts which was good for me as I used to see him before I started work so I didn't have to ask for time off. Regarding having eggies to freeze I think it depends on each individual. We were lucky in the sense that DH has great sperm count and my eggs were fine it was just the fact I had pcos and twisted tubes and slight endo. I had 10 eggs removed and we ended up with 8 day 5 blastocysts. We fell on our third transfer so I have 5 left. Hope that helps you a little. hope this one is a fighter!

    Calli - hang in there. I know that is much easier said then done. I had 3 bleeds from week 5-6 and was on bed rest for nearly a month. I'm now 15 weeks and everything is ok. Just do what your body is telling you. I ended up on 5 x 400mg pessaries a day. Your dr knows what's best and they will do everything they can to help you. Hope that lil baby hangs in there.

    Tk, Jen, Kate thinking of you all xx

    Hi ladies,

    Kristin - you give me hope that it is (hopefully) going to turn out well. It is so nice to hear success stories cause it gives me a small amount of comfort. Thanks so much for logging on cause your comments mean a lot.

    Kate - wow, day 38 and still nothing. Hopefully the cramps are a good thing and it means your AF is on its way. Or maybe you have just completely missed a cycle and come day 56 your AF will arrive. Perhaps ask Jen for some of her tribal moves that she was going to bust out at one stage What is your sister in laws name? The wedding we went to was for Brett and kristy. Kristy is my niece and it was such a beautiful wedding. I ended up having to leave about 8ish cause I was just exhausted and the nurse told me to rest. So thought I would be best to go home and rest up. It was a shame to miss some of the festivities though. My DH was apparently on fire on the dance floor (as per normal) which was a shame to miss. Hope your sister in law enjoyed herself.

    Sandy - don't ever feel guilty about a selfish post - that is why we are all here. To help each other through the good and the bad times. Stay positive about halfa (I love the name by the way) cause even though it is 40% dead, you have 60% that is alive! And 60% is enough for it to turn into a bfp. I will keep everything crossed for you that everything works out as you hope. I sympathize with what you say about missing out on things. But if you finally get your wish then all those missed times and drinks will be worth it. Look at me, I had to miss half of my nieces wedding last night but figure it will be worth it in the end if things all work out. I am keeping everything crossed for Tuesday for you. Please log on to let us know.

    Tk and Jen - Hi ladies. Hope you are well xx

    Afm - I have been feeling really low and thinking that if this doesn't work out then what is the point. You can get so far and finally get the bfp that you have been hoping for for so long, only to have it taken away and you have to start again. Sorry about the rant but think I just needed to get those thoughts off my chest. I should not complain cause I know that I am extremely lucky to be where I am but I am just so concerned and scared at the moment. Thankfully I haven't had any more spotting since my last post so hopefully that is a good sign. I am just holding out for our next scan on Friday in the hope that there is a healthy heartbeat. The nurse said to bring the appointment forward to Friday (was booked for Tuesday the following week) which is the first day that a heart beat can be detected but I am concerned that it might be too early and I would prefer to make it for the Monday instead - just to be sure. Or else if there is no heartbeat on Friday then I may not believe it and think it is just too early. Any thoughts?? hmmm... I just need to stay positive and not let these awful thoughts in. Sorry for my post ladies. But I really appreciate you all listening xx

    Morning Ladies

    Calli – I am so sorry that you have had a scare, especially so far away from home, when I can imagine all you want to do is be in your own home. But hopefully the distraction of the wedding is make the time fly by til you can have your scan. I hope you haven’t had any more spotting. Spotting can be very common in early pregnancy, irritation of the cervix from the pessaries, breakthrough bleeds that occur around when you should be having your period and for other reasons. However, none of that helps your stress I can imagine, it’s just so unfair to have these extra worries. I am feeling very positive about your little one, and think your scan will show all is well. Your very strong to wait til Monday, I’d want to go tomorrow, but understand it is a bit early. I hope you are doing ok honey... try and stay positive, I honestly think all will be perfect. And please know that we are always here to listen to you!! Oh and I really don’t want you to leave this thread, I think we would all love to hear about your journey, you’re one of the gold coast girlies you can’t leave!

    Beck – Oh hun I am so sorry that your cycle didn’t work, it really is completely crushing. Even when you try not to, you put your heart out there on each cycle (well I do), and it hurts. I understand what you mean about wanting your DH, I always want my DH around too. I hope you managed to get some time with your DH, and maybe spoke to your Mum if you were feeling up to it. Good luck at your scan on Wednesday, I hope this is your cycle.

    Kate – Hope your AF comes along soon, my first AF following my miscarriage was very light as I had a lot of on and off bleeding for two weeks following the D & C. Perhaps that 3 day bleed was your AF this month, and then next month AF may be back to normal. Oh that is really hard about the lady that you work with, she sounds like she is a delicate person, I hope you will be ok.

    T & K – Woo watch you ladies with your boxing and running, you really are motivated, I always have good intentions and often start well, but then start slipping into old habits. Great to hear that you are distracted and that the time is flying by, nothing worse than that hanging around waiting for time to go by! When you do cycle next, you will both be in great head spaces!

    Sandy – How are you doing hun. I really hope that your results come in differently tomorrow and you don’t even have to think of changing to Dr O, but I will answer your questions about him for when you need him for your next bubba! I have seen Dr O a few times before 8:30 for scans etc so think he is very flexible, however he does finish early so think after hours isn’t possible, but I may be wrong. Dr O is also contactable out of hours by email and he is very quick to reply. I love Dr O as I really feel he is behind us, he wants this to work as much as we do, and is willing to listen to any crazy ideas we have, as well as coming up with different options. I can’t help you with regard to frozen and if the clinics are different I really don’t know, just with myself I have had such different results. First cycle I had 7 fertilize from 15 and had 1 transferred and 2 frozen, second cycle had 9 fertilize from 10, 1 transferred and 4 frozen, this cycle 6 fertilized from seven, had two transferred and none frozen. I’ve heard about failed cycles with perfect embryos and not so perfect embryo,s as well as BFP’s with perfect embryos and not so perfect embryos, so who knows, for me that is the scary part, no one really knows why it doesn’t work when everything ‘looks’ right (sorry for the complete ramble – I’ll stop here before I start making even less sense), there’s def more to it than just science. Each cycle seems so different, just got to hope on the right egg in the right place at the right time. Fingers crossed for Tuesday!

    Kristen – Lovely to hear from you always. How are you feeling? When do you next have your big scan? Hope you are well

    AFM – 6 days past transfer, and I’m half wishing the days away so I know, and half wishing time would stop so I could stay with the dream of being pregnant forever, if you know what I mean. No idea what is going on in there, and am way to scared to test and end it all, although not sure what waiting til Friday does, lets me have that little bit of hope for longer. Some moments I feel very positive, others I doubt myself, so what I am trying to say is that I don’t really know. But I am hoping with every fibre of my being that this is our cycle. We didn’t get any frozen this cycle (this cycle was a really weird cycle for us, I didn’t respond as well as I normally do, hope it is just one of those things), so don’t know what that means for us if this cycle doesn’t work, but I don’t want to think about it til I am in that situation, which I hope I’m not.
    So apart from the 2WW craziness I am just enjoying having my Mum here, we aren’t doing all that much, my Mum has been over a few times so we have done all the sightseeing type things before, instead we are just ‘being’ in each other’s company, which is nice and relaxing!
    Oh and as for coffee the 18th suits me fine day or morning I am pretty flexible, can’t do the weekend after at all though! XX
    PS. Apologies for the essay!!

    Hi girls. I have been reading your messages and would love to join your group. Like the other new girls I'm still learning all the lingo!
    I'm on my first IVF cycle...off tomorrow for my blood test to see if transfer was successful. I'm pretty nervous as this little one was the only viable one....and I've been experiencing some cramping etc so they have brought the test forward one day.
    I am another great fan of Dr Ong and acupuncture. I see Gus from Inner Gate Well Being in Mudgeeraba. He is fabulous I've been going to him for endo etc for over 3 years.
    Thank you to TK Wishing for suggesting this site to our lovely mutual friend Jen

    Hello Girls

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    Welcome GCNic!! I hope you get great news today from your bloods and those cramps are just your little one settling in for the dureation!

    Calli - I hope you haven't had any more spotting and all is going ok, thinking of you!

    Sorry for the me post....

    7 days past transfer and I have had the usual bit of spotting this morning, so am pretty sure it is all over, the last four cycles were pretty much identical so not holding out much hope if any to be honest. It's hit me pretty hard and I feel quite defeated. I don't know where we go from here, I don't want to think that maybe this is it for us, but I guess we need to think about it at some point. Anyways I'm going to take a bit of time out from here and mend our hearts. Will be thinking of all of you girls and I really hope that your next cycle is the one that brings you your baby, god knows everyone of your girls deserves it.

    Thanks for being there for me.
    Love Jen X

    Thank you Jen for the welcome .

    Sending you all the good vibes I can. When is your blood test? Will they bring it forward even a day or so?

    AFM - no luck :-( Back to Dr Ong next week to review.

    Take care of you. Look forward to chatting to you when you feel up to coming back on.

    Hi Girls,

    Calli - hope you're doing well. I'm sorry to hear about your scare. I hope that you get the result you're wishing for and i'm sure everything will be ok. I have everything crossed for you. xx

    Jen - I'm so sorry to hear that you've had spotting. It must be really difficult after so many attempts and even harder when it all seems the same as the last times. But I'm holding onto hope for you that this will be the exception and your spotting is from one of the many other reasons you can have a little bleed. I have my fingers crossed and thinking about you. xx

    GCnic - Welcome. It feels a little weird to say that as i'm only very new myself but its a great thread and everyone on here is amazing. Its been very helpful to talk to people who understand what you're going through and I hope you can get as much advice and comfort from the girls as I have. I'm sorry to hear that you had no luck with your first cycle. Its an awful feeling to have that negative result. I hope you have lots of support around you and good luck when you see your FS next week.

    AFM - I've been quiet on here since I had my negative result. I've had my AF for over a week and really heavy which is weird for me as i've always had short, light AF. I suppose all the progesterone has done that and i'm glad its finally gone. I'm feeling a lot better and have kept myself busy reading actually. I am not working ATM as I'm selling the business I have been running for the last 3 years. Its been a blessing really, and great timing that I don't need to work atm. I do dog walking and pet sitting which keeps a little money coming in, but otherwise i'm able to rest and relax. Sticking to my daily yoga classes which make me feel awesome and positive and relaxed. I've been reading the Fifty shades of grey series. I stole mum's book off her to take away on our weekend to Salt and got really into it. I've read all 3 books over the last 2 weeks and its kept my mind off things (and taken every spare minute of my time as I just couldn't put it down). I highly recommend the series if you haven't already read them. I loved it!
    My appt is tomorrow with my FS to see if i've grown a follicle naturally this FET cycle. Fingers crossed, tomorrow is day 10 and then hopefully I can get into BT's and ovulate and get our first little frosty safely inside me and here's hoping this is our lucky cycle.
    Mum settled on her house yesterday and she's moved out. I'm currently lying on the lounge next to me DH, just the two of us and it feels really good. Life is temporarily back to normal. It won't be relaxing and comfortable for long but its nice while it lasts.

    Good luck everyone with whatever it is you're doing ATM and I look forward to hearing some positive news soon.

    Beck xo
