Hello everyone ,
Sorry haven't been on for a while, so much to catch up on.
Luckyme1 - how have you been? Sorry to hear AF came, biatch! I hope your thyroid is behaving herself. Glad you got a referral for a specialist, how did your appointment go? Hope you've been continuing with acupuncture, sounds like it's really helping you out with stress. I've tried it and it did nothing for me, so I'm glad it's working for you. Sorry to hear about your redundancy, any positive news with getting another role? Good luck with your ultrasound on Monday and hope you receive your progesterone and AMH results soon.
Shelby - love your avatar pic, absolutely gorgeous.
Ginny83 - best wishes with TTC #2.
Woowoo - hope you're well. I'm so glad you're taking the next step in TTC 2 and starting IVF around Easter, hopefully you'll get a BFP before then though, enjoy eating and drinking what you like before you start, like Luckyme said it will help you feel relaxed and ready to go for it. If you need any IVF info, feel free to let me know. I'm in no way an expert but have a bit of an idea after just going through my 4th cycle. It's great to hear you've started yoga and loving it, keep it up!!
Joey3 - hello to you, best wishes for your TTC journey, hope it's short and sweet. Love your avatar pic too. I've had to resort to IVF for no. 2 as we tried for 2 years naturally and nothing happened and I wasn't getting any younger. With IVF, it is recommended that you live your life as normal as possible, but yes, with TTC (IVF or natural) vigorous exercise is not recommended, nor is drinking or smoking.
AFM - had egg collection yesterday and had 3 eggs. I wasn't feeling positive at all as my last IVF cycle I had 2 eggs and both didn't fertilise. I said to DH that I'm going to buy myself a Pandora bracelet to make me feel better, he just laughed at me but looked a bit sad as he is more clucky than me and would dearly love another child. Anyway, I was walking DS to school this morning when I received an SMS, it was from the fertility clinic. I was reading and walking (which is a bit silly I know, not to mention dangerous as I could have walked onto the road!) but I was too shocked to stand still. I couldn't believe what I was reading - all 3 eggs fertilised and I'm going for embryo transfer tomorrow.
Whether it was DHEA or the other supplements I was on that helped the fertilisation, I don't know, but a definite improvement from my last disastrous cycle. I forwarded the SMS to DH who rung me all excited, but I just couldn't get excited because the hard part now is for the emby to stick. I'll let you know in 2 weeks how I go. I just wish I can make it through the 2 weeks, not so much to see if it's a BFP (which of course would be the ultimate) but because I've never actually made it through the TWW before AF appears. Also, feeling a bit down as my cousin who is a year older than me is expecting bub no. 2 and we've been trying longer than her, damn it!
