    Hi Lovely Ladies!

    How are you today?

    Stacey - Hi and welcome Stacey Lee!! Wish you all the best with your TWW! Im only on day 2 of waiting to see how my little embies are going and thats driving me nuts! so can only imagine what you are going thru!
    this is my first cycle with Dr O - he is such an attentive man!

    Liesey - How are you going miss mumma to be! So excited for you!!

    Kitty - dying to hear what you have to tell me!! hurry to a computer! How are you going in your TWW? gone mad yet??

    Kalli - Congrats on being PUPO! I hope this is the one for you!! I really do! I agree with you about Monash not being in it for the money! Its true, you def dont feel like a number do you! How long have you been with Monash now?
    Im sending you tonnes of your way! Let this be your month hun! A friend of mine sent me a pic of her pos preg test (which I got on Monday after EPU) and I ignored it.. she text me again and asked if I got it, I couldnt deal with it so didnt text back, so she text me again saying that she knows I got it.. I lost it! told her the world doesnt revolve around her and that when she already has 3 kids and Im struggling to even concieve one its hurtful - she replied 'dont get bitter, I was only telling you cos you get so excited' WTF! I havent replied cos I know I will say something I will regret! so I know how you are feeling about the bitterness feeling!

    Frangi - Im sorry to hear about your chem preg... that really really does suck!! what happens from here? do you have any frosties?

    AFM - Well I am feeling alot better about it all today! Got the call and our little embies are going strong! I only spoke to her 15 mins ago and I cant for the life of me remember what cells they were at! but remember asking if they were normal! which she replied yes! ohhhh man! not even preg and Im forgetful!
    Had yesterday off and needed it, geez I was sore! bloating is going down now too, felt like a little piggy yest so wore long dresses!! haha

    So with all things considered transfer will be Sat morning... when do they tell you what time? I want to have acupunture before and after...

    Do you think I should call Monash and discuss what happened with the picsi or wait to see how the embies go>??

    Hey does anyone know if Brads wife had the baby? When I was in there last thurs he said she was 4cm! surely would have had him by now!

    And thanks for all your kind thoughts, really made me feel better!

    Enjoy the sunshine today!

    Jessesgirl - I know how u feel the waiting for that phone call each day is crap. I just tried to take it day by day. Im so happy to hear that all three of your little embryos are going along perfectly so far. My most nervous day was getting the ET. But it went quickly and Dr Ong and the nurses are all so lovely. I had a few tears after it. I had 8 follicles before UPU, 6 at UPU, 4 fertiles and they were going great until ET. Only 2 went to blastocyst, so I only have 1 frozen but it's better than none. How many follicles did see at u/s? I wish you lots of luck for Sat at your ET. Fingers crossed all 3 little darlings go to blastocyst. Fingers & toes crossed 4 u. Lots of baby dust for u

    Hey Stacey,

    At least you have a frosty to go back to! I hope we do too!!
    the reason I was so shocked was because at the very start he found in his words 'at least 12 follies' so he kept my dosage down as he didnt want to over stim me.. then at the first u/s he said to me that there is 10 good size and at least 7 smaller ones.. i was over the moon then another u/s he said 11 good ones..

    So from then to epu there were 9 and 6 were immature... hence being so frustrated!

    How are you feeling in the tww? relaxing at home I hope!

    But as my friend said I just jump the hurdle when I need to!
    But gosh the call everyday is killing me! its worse cos the scientist I have cant get me off the ph quick enough! makes me feel like im asking too much!~

    Ahhh

    Hey Jessesgirl, I can so understand your frustration. 11 to only getting 3, u poor thing it must have been a shock. My number wasnt high but only 2 weren't mature, so I felt rather lucky with that. The entire process is rather frustrating, just so much waiting. When u see their number come up on the phone each day i'd take a big deep breath before answering. I know what you mean, when they call they just tell you how they are and how many cells and you kind of feel you cant ask too many questions. I haven't really asked many questions along the way, sometimes I feel better not knowing too much, if you know what I mean. Im feet up and resting until Thursday, I just want to give it my best shot. I work from home so Im able to do nothing for a few days. Well, hopefully in a few weeks we will both be celebrating cause we are pregnant, wouldn't that be awesome! Let us know how you go tomorrow after your phone call. xx

    Hi Lovelies!

    JG - That is great news that your Embies are doing well! Only three more sleeps and you will be PUPO!! woohoo!

    Frangipani - I am so sorry to hear about your chemical pregnancy. That totally sux! xx

    Kalli - Yay for the 2WW! hope you are feeling relaxed (ha!) I hope you are staying sane in your 2WW!

    Welcome Stacy! It's great to have you here! You have had a tough journey and i'm hoping IVF is short and sweet for you! bring on the BFP!

    Hi Kitty, EH, Angels, Aunty, Teags!

    I am good. Feeling a bit gross but who would have thought that it would be exciting to feel sick! Last night I ate dinner and then threw it all back up! I was quite happy about that really as I hadn't eaten a very healthy dinner but it was yum... so when i threw it up the guilt was gone! ...don't worry, i'm not about to develop an eating disorder!

    Hello Ladies,

    Welcome Stacey i hope your stay here is a short one and you get your BFP very soon.

    JG- I cant believe your friend could be so insensative,you would have thought that she got the hint after you didnt respond to the first couple of messages good on you for having a go at her, i would have done exactly the same thing. I hope your little embies continue to thrive and am looking forward to hearing how you go on Saturday. I was also at Brads last thursday i was the last appt for the day tho, how funny if we had crossed paths and not known, its weird cause every time i see another woman there i wonder if its someone from this thread.

    Frangi- How devastating for you to have a chemical pregnancy, i am so sorry big hugs to you..Whats next for you??

    Kalli-How are you going in the TWW, hope you are starting to feel better about things.

    Kitty-Whats happening with you, any news yet???

    Liesey-So glad things are going well for you, what a great excuse to throw up any bad stuff that you have eaten


    Hello to all you other lovely ladies

    AFM- I had my nurses appt on mon which was good but very overwhelming with all the info. I then went to my appt with the psychic/energy healer which was just awful and i sooooo regret going. He was spot on with alot of things but was not very positive at all with anything. First he told me the DP and i wouldnt last then proceeded to tell me DP will have problems around his heart area which will hospitalise him then he asked who the other woman was WTF!!! i said well i hope there isnt one to which he replied oh im not saying that he is doing anything wrong and im like well sounds like you are implying that. Then at the end i explained to him that a woman once did a palm reading on me and told me my life line wasnt very long so he takes my hand has a look at it and say " well if you were to go by your life line you would be dead at 42" WTF!!!!!! i think all the colour drained from my face cause he started to back peddle and try and make up for the stupid thing he said by taking my hand again and saying oh i see you living to your early 90s and i just looked at him at said well its obvious that you are just saying that to make me feel better and i then just left and then he said to not go by a line on my hand, well why the hell comment on it in the first place. As i am a person that suffers badly from anxiety and panic attacks especially about my health and i have always had a fear of dying his flippant comment just sent me into overdrive and i have had a very stressful couple of days. So i DEFINATELY will not be recommending him to anyone.

    My other dilema is when to start my cycle, the nurse said i can go on my next period which is due next tues but i am wondering if its to soon after my tonsilectomy as that was only 3 weeks and according to my specialist it is quite traumatic for your body and takes about 8 weeks for it to properly recover even tho i feel fine. Also DP kids are due here this weekend for a weeks holiday so i would be jabbing and going through hormone craziness while they are here and that worries me cause im not sure how i will react anxiety and panic wise to all the hormones im injecting into myself and lastly i have only been taking elevit for 6 weeks (will be nearly 8 weeks by EPU) and my multivitamins for about 4 weeks (will be nearly 6 weeks by EPU) so am wondering if because of my low AMH (4.5) if i should be taking them for at least another 4 weeks so as to give myself the best chance to improve my egg quality, i cant afford to do this more than a couple of times so am worried that if i go ahead this month and get crappy eggs that i will have wasted all that money...arggg so much to think of..What do you think ladies, would you wait another month so that the vitamins can have a chance to have more affect ??

    I am so tired now im not sure if i am making any sense so am off to bed, am going to see Brad tomorrow am slowly starting to enjoy my sessions with him he is such a nice man.

    to you all

    Liesey -Thank u so much, lets hope this is the one for me.
    Fabulous news for u!!!! How far along are u now? Was this your first ivf cycle? Being sick has probably never been so exciting.

    Angels4me - Hi, thanks for your welcome. OMG, Im so sorry u had to go thru that from the psychic. That is just bloody terrible what he said to you. I went to one last year and she told me all this bollocks. When she found out I was wanting a baby (from asking me a million questions), strange I didn't think they had to do that. She informed me my tubes were blocked and my septum would grow back. Which I had removed last year. She was full of bloody gabbage but put these silly doubts in my head. $150.00 later I walked out of there thinking she knew nothing and made everything up. Don't waste your time thinking about what he said and don't go to anymore psychics I think most of them know nothing and will only upset you, especially when you're looking for such important answers in your life.

    With choosing when to start your cycle, you just need to decide when the time is right for you. Its a very daunting time actually starting but onces you have I think it's easier. Maybe cause you do have so much stuff on, the following month may be more suitable. You want your mind to be as clear and calm as possible, I believe that's really important. I know what u mean money wise, I think most of us are in the same boat. We only have so many cycles we can afford to do and we want our bodies in A1 condition. Good luck with it all and remember don't give that psychic another thought. Sending baby dust your way

    Hi to everyone else and hope you're all feeling in good spirits today

    Good Morning ladies!

    How are you?

    Firstly OMG Angels - What a m%^thf&%$ker for telling you that, I would have walked out and not paid! that is down right wrong and nasty! I hope you are feeling better today and try not to think about it.. I know you will though! Have you got the book I told you about yet? Pls do, it really does put things into perspective! I was given the book for my birthday last year and I swear its my life saver when I feel down and out.. Go get it woman!!
    With your cycle, I think you already know what you want to do.. if you are questioning to wait I think you know... otherwise you would be full swing into to it.. personally if the specialist has said its traumatic on your body I would wait.. But its entirely your decison and you need to feel 100% happy with it..

    Stacey - Glad you have your feet up! what kind of work do you do? I see your in the Mudgee area! so am I!

    Frangi - Hope you are feeling better today hun

    Kittty - Where are you?? haha Thinking of you and your two embies!!

    Hi to Aunty, Teags and liesey!!

    AFM- Was worrying myself this morning before the call! got a diff scientist this time and she was so lovely! GOOD NEWS!! All three embies are fighting fit!! She said they are text book perfect and have NO fragmentation!!! I told her that if I was standing in front of her I would be hugging her! she thought that was funny! I just cant beleive it! Fingers crossed for tomrrow and Saturday goes well! I thought by this stage one would have arrested for sure... I told my mum and she replied 'you little babies want to be here!' made my day!

    So now my status on fb is 'you couldnt wipe the smile off my face if you tried' and didnt think too much of it now everyone thinks im UTD! haha to rub it in my best friend wrote 'thats great, but dont say anything yet'

    Have a good day ladies, and enjoy this sunshine if you can!!

    Hi Girls!

    It has become crazy busy in here! We really need some more BFPs though!!

    Stacy – Welcome! So glad you have found us (or your mum!). We can be TWW buddies together! I have one week to go….. It sounds like you have had an exceptionally hard time in getting to this point, I am so sorry about your twins. It is great that Dr O has found the missing piece of the puzzle so hopefully you will get your BFP very soon!

    Angels – So glad your nurses apt went well – it is a bit overwhelming with all the information but all pretty straight forward when you actually start. Tough call on the waiting vs starting thing, this is one of the main challenges for me in the IVF world! Did you ask Dr about waiting because of the tonsillectomy? I would see what he thought. I agree with Stacy that where your mind is at plays a big part in how you feel about a cycle, I wouldn’t start until you feel completely ready. As for the reading that is absolutely outrageous! I cant believe someone could lack so much tact and discretion! They are basically a form of councelling so they should be really really careful about how they word stuff! Is there any sort of governing body that you could report it to? Not sure if there is for psychics….

    Liesey – very glad you are feeling so green – all for a good cause right? I am actually a little jealous!

    Jesse – ha ha! I don’t have anything that exciting to say, I am just hopeless on the phone because I can’t edit properly!! That is wonderful news that your 3 embies are doing well, it is the most stressful time in IVF waiting for the phonecall each morning to see how they are going! I hope you get more good news tomorrow! I was just going to say that it sounds like your cycle is almost identical to my first cycle! I only got 7 eggs and 4 were mature. We ended up with 2 to transfer. I got MUCH better results from the 2nd round, just because they knew my eggs needed longer to mature (even though they were the right size) and upped my Gonal F dose slightly. So second round I got 17 eggs, 16 mature which went to 5 excellent blasties. Much better! So hopefully you won’t need a second cycle, but just wanted to give you hope that if you do need to go again it should be much better. But 3 is excellent…. go embies go !!! And as for the PICSI – did you pay for it?? If you paid for it I would definitely be asking about what happened and why it wasn’t used! And for a refund!

    Kalli – I totally hear you on everything in your post. Could have written it myself. I am in the TWW myself so am trying to be really optimistic, but if this doesn’t work I will be a very sad, sooky mess. It feels like everyone else is moving forward with their families, at least 4 new babies in the past month, and I just feel like it is never my turn. Baahh!! But my DD keeps me smiling and trouping on, but some days I feel like I am failing her as well…….hang in there for your TWW...sending some dust your way

    Frangipani – I am so sorry about your chemical….that totally totally sucks . I actually don’t think I realised you were cycling at the moment, so feel awful that I couldn’t support you better. So are there any clues as to the reason behind the chemicals? Obviously not if they are not fixing it. So sorry, it totally sucks.

    I am going well at the moment, halfway through the TWW. There are a few of us at the moment which is kind of exciting! No major symptoms just a few cramps which is normal for me, but I have everything crossed. I so don't know how I will pick myself up if this one doesn't work. POSITIVE PENNIES !!!
