    Hi Girls!!

    How are we all?

    Angels- Im going really well. Just getting my life back on track - amazing how this ttc can consume our lives! Back in the gym and hitting it hard before xmas then will cycle early January! I cant wait!
    I was the same as you, didnt feel that bloated just fuller IYKWIM.. but doesnt mean its not working. Yay EPU Friday! What time are you going in? how exciting!!
    Id def take Saturday off too! I was really tender the few days after.. So just relax if you can..

    Liesey - You are a busy bee arent you!! and all in 7 weeks you need to move! Are you 10 weeks now? Gosh thats gone fast!! Get that gatorade into you!!

    Stacey - I hope you are still relaxing! that little bubble is doing a super job so far!!

    Kalli - Hope you are going good guns!! You are a super strong person! 3 cycles is still alot mentally when you think about it!

    Hi Aunty, Teags, Kitty!!

    AFM- Well just the usual plodding along, getting back into the gym and training to get back to what I am happy with.. been abit lazy when cycling and then thought I coud still eat what I wanted!! so I have bought myself some cute shorts I plan to wear over the xmas break when we are away and I WILL look good in them!! Looks like our sharkeys herbs will be ready at the end of the week so will be back on them too.. Ive settled down with the dhea I had terrible runs (TMI) but its fine now thank god!! LMAO!

    I emailed Kee last night at 8.30pm asking the proper dose of royal jelly as I cant find a definitive answer of how much I should take and if surgery goes well on the 7th will I be right to cycle at the start of January - and he has no probs.. so now I am praying that I have nothing sinister going on in there! Still amazes me that man! he didnt have to email me back at 8.45pm but he did!

    Anywho, hope you are enjoying these summery days! I love it!!

    Hi JG! I am glad you are enjoying getting back into shape! and the shorts sound like a good incentive! I am regretting letting myself go so much when going through IVF because i am feeling huge and disgusting already and it's only going to get worse!

    I realised today that I have to endure my family over christmas without being able to partake in any cocktails!! OH MY! it's going to be tough! ha.
    I am 11 weeks today! i have my scan next Tuesday which will be nice.

    xx

    Hi Girls

    Angels - I'm so happy that your feeling well with the infections. 8 Follicles, way to go girlfriend! I think the Gonal F also grows the eggs to a mature stage and if you don't take the Gonal F I think the others will die off leaving the 1 egg like a normal cycle without IVF. I think. I woke up last nite thinking about your scan and I forgot to ask how it went. I wake up thinking all sorts of things lately. I agree, you should have Saturday off especially if you're on your feet all day. Are u taking a few days off after ET too? I rested in bed for 3 days, I wanted that little puppy to stick. hehe Good luck for Friday sweety.

    Liesey - U are so busy with packing. U poor thing still feeling unwell too. I agree with you I feel much better when eating all day long. haha If I keep that up Im going to be as big as a house. I am also not sleeping that well, I wake during the nite at anytime and it takes me hours to get back to sleep. 11 weeks, Wooohoo!!! Will that be your last scan with Dr O? I'm 9 weeks & 4 days tomorrow.

    JG - Those shorts sound like a really good incentive. Where are u going on your holidays? Wow! I can't beleive how quickly Dr O got back to you. He is a marvel that man.

    ATM - Went for my scan with Dr O yesterday. All was good, heartbeat was 180. I've got my referral for my 12 weeks scan now too. I go back to Dr O next Thurs for my last scan with him and that's it, I'm off to Dr Hussan then. I can't wait for 12 weeks, bring it On!!! I've been relaxing still except for today I went a little out of control. Dr O would kill me if he saw me but I'll be good again tomorrow.

    xoxo

    Thanks JG for Dr O's email address i tried to reply but am not sure if i did it right, i am a bit technologically challenged Did you receive my message back??? My EPU is waaaaay early on friday, i have to be there at 6am and they will do EPU at 7am they said i should be good to go home by about 9.30am-10am.

    Stacey- thanks for thinking of me and thanks for the info on Gonal F i am feeling a bit better about taking it now. I am not sure if i will take any time off after ET i was thinking just the day of ET then back to work, i am not sure what do you ladies think???? What time were you at Dr O's office i was there at 7am, its weird when i go there cause i look at the other woman sitting there waiting and wonder if any of them are any of the ladies from this thread..So glad to hear your scan went well how exciting, keep resting up though girl and i hope you start sleeping better soon. Have you tried a relaxation tape, mine puts me to sleep every time.

    Last day of injections tomorrow for me

    Morning Lovelies!

    Angels - i felt fine after my ET, i think you would be fine to go back to work the next day. I went out for breakfast for a few hours for a girlfriends birthday straight after mine and then went shopping. EPU is a lot more draining on your body and you want to rest up after that so you are feeling good for ET.

    Stacy - how exciting that you are almost 10 weeks! glad to hear everything is going well. I'm not with Dr O.. I am the rebel in this group who didn't go through monash. I'm seeing Dr Dunn. I will see him right up until I move (it would be up until the birth if we weren't moving!). He's been excellent so i'm glad i get to keep seeing him. I am worried I am going to be the hugest person ever by the end of this with all the eating i'm doing.. but you have to do what works!! ha!

    Angels - I'm so excited for you. Tomorrow is the big day. I really hope Dr O gets a big amount of mature eggs for you. Are u having Saturday off? With the ET, most girls dont rest like I did you don't really have too. But because I've had so many miscarriages over the years I just wanted to give it everything I possibly could. I'm sure you'll be fine to go back to work the next day. Good luck for tomorrow. xox

    JG - How are u? Yes, my Mum told me the other day that a high heartbeat means I'm having a girl. WOW! That would be fantastic.

    Kalliope - You have been thru so much trying to conceive, even your first bubby boy took 6 years. It's such a hard road. I really hope this works for you and u get your bubby # 2.

    Hi to all ladies and hope you're all having a lovely week

    Hi Girls I am back!

    We had a lovely break away at the beach and I did my best to not think about IVF/babies as much as possible....well of course it is impossible but it was nice to try

    Stacy - so glad your bubba is going strong in there, it sounds like you have had a ridiculously stressful time getting to the magical 12 weeks though, bed rest doesn't sound much fun so I hope you are hanging in there! It's all for a good cause though right

    JG - Sounds like you have had a stressful couple of weeks as well. What Op are you having in November? Is this the lap/hysto thing? I could have written a few of your posts - I too am trying to get back to the gym and focus on life outside of IVF since it is not giving me much joy at the moment.

    Leisey - moving??? At least you can stay on the GC virtually by still catching up with us I am glad all is going well with bubs!

    Kalli - thinking of you too, you are one special lady hanging in there is so hard at times and I hope this is the cycle for you. It is so hard to have hope after so long and it makes you wonder if it would be less heartbreaking just to let it all go.......but keeping our eye on the prize is important for you!

    Angels - all the best for your EPU tomorrow, I am sure it will go well. Can't wait to hear your good news tomorrow - prepare yourself, the time your embies are in the petrie dish is THE most stressful time

    As for me.....have had a bunch of bloods done for immune/thyroid issues when I was away and all but one have now come back and they are all clear. So in for the hysto on Monday to see if there is anything inside causing the issue. I honestly don't know what is good or bad news anymore - if they don't find anything then it means our embies are a problem I think....and that doesn't sound good. Anyways, I shall cross that bridge when I come to it. One day at a time

    Take care!
