Ok, that's what the embryologist said but maybe they were over simplifying? And I thought someone here said that too but maybe I am mis-remembering, it was a while ago.
Apparently my levels are great today. I'll ring back in the morning so I can ask what they were. Just happy to hear that all is well
marzi - sounds like things are bettera dn travelling along now.
haydos - I have NO idea what my issue is as they cannot find one thing wrong with me or DH. Frustrating I can tell you. I too like to think I am in control but I have finally let go after this IVF rollercoaster as I have come to realise me obsessing and blaming myself was not going to get me any further than if I stayed peaceful and let go of a little of my tendency to have to know everything and organise everything. I am not going to lie. It took me a LONG time to get past the wanting to know why. I have come to be at peace with maybe never knowing why and that is a hard thing for a control freak perfectionist to do. I completely relate to the researching and trying to gain some sense of control. I would not have had half the tests I have had if I did not research and bring them up with my docstors. It is about the only time DH has been grateful that I had to take matters into my own hands. In answer to your question, yes, lots of embryos and no implantation to my knowledge. I am looking at a cycle some time next year and I would guess and say about Feb or March. I am not about to do a cycle on my month off from work in the new year I can tell you. I hear you on the explaining the terms of IVF over and over again. I do not know how many times I have explained how the transferring works etc but she still asks me EVERY time. My Dad, well he is on a whole other level. It's like I have never uttered the words before. In one ear and out the other.
star - thanks my love. I am trying not to decide 100 percent just yet. I have some fun to have over my holidays before I try and be serious about it. I know that sounds like I am being selfish, but I am just not quite there yet mentally. I am still a little raw from the past many attempts and I do not feel entirely comfortable yet. Will I ever though? Any more funnies to share with us??
AFM...I spent the entire day with my nephews who are beyond excited about how many more sleeps until Christmas and acted like little rat bags from sheer excitement. You cannot fault them for that. I remember how excited I used to get and I could not sleep. I still cannot sleep Xmas Eve as I get excited about watching everyone open their prezzies.
Not long to go now.
If I do not get on here again beforehand, I wish you all a very merry Christmas and hope your wishes come true. You all deserve a nice big fat stocking on Xmas morning afterall. XXX
Hi everyone , I'm sorry I've been missing, it was just so crazy last week being the end of the school term and then we had visitors on the weekend. I'm hanging out for a big rest - hopefully starting tomorrow!
I'll pop back tomorrow to catch up with personals but wanted to post that I had my NT scan today and everything was perfect so we are really happy tonight. I wasn't sure if I should mention it here or not so I hope it doesnt upset anyone that I have posted pregnancy related information. My Ob has told me to stop clexane now which freaks me a bit with my clotting issues but he assures me that an aspirin each day will be enough and that they were just being overly cautious with the clexane for the 1st 12 weeks. He's addded in for them to check my uterine artery flow at my 20 week scan though but I think it was just to keep me happy because I asked about 4 times if he was sure I should stop the clexane.
I hope everyone has been well, sending lots of and also to all of the lovely ladies on this thread. I know that Christmas is a tough time of the year. Please take care and I'll be back tomorrow so I can catch up with where people are at.
Lily!!! What wonderful news Congrats to you and DH. I LOVE hearing good news from long termers and really want you hang around and update us during your pregnancy. It is the inspiration I need to keep my eye on the prize!
Marzi, hope that all is still going well. How were your numbers?
Jamison, new year is a good time to get back on the horse. Enjoy Christmas and new year (guilt free) and hopefully by this time next year there will be plenty more babies to celebrate on this thread (including yours!)
Haydos, hope you are staying sane on your 2WW. When is bt?
Frosty, thinking of you mate and hoping all is serene and calm in your world and in your womb How long till 19wk scan now??
Loveabug and Lilbirdy... and Smootch if you're still around.
AFM, I have been having cycle monitoring this month to see what my body will do and unfortunately, I have a thin endo again! I have been having this issue since my 2nd D&C earlier this year so have decided to have a hysteroscopy in late Jan and see what's happening as it could be caused by scarring. More delays which is frustrating but I feel I really need to try and sort this issue out before transferring anymore of my precious embies.
Have a safe and wonderful festival season lovely ladies It's been a really tough year for many here. For that I send many I plan to hold my loved ones close and say a thank you to the universe for the unknown blessings that are coming my way next year. I just KNOW there is going to be plenty more long termers who will achieve their dreams in 2012!!
Hi, will reply properly later but just wanted to drop by with an update. I poas today and got a faint positive. Stunned! Apart from a pregnyl cycle I've never ever seen a positive before...
It's still early days so I'm very cautious but thrilled as well. Neither of us can believe it, this seems like something that happens to other people.
I keep checking the test in case I made it up.
It's only day 12, going in for a BT tomorrow. xx
Haydos - , that is wonderful. Good luck for an awesome result at BT tomorrow
Lilly great news, just keep postings your updates, i love reading success stories especially from this thread it is inspiring. keeps us going with hope
Star its a good idea to get all checked out I know how disappointing it is to add more delays but you have some great frosties awaiting for your miracle to happen
Jamison Guilt free is a must for recovery, you need to enjoy some time off especially when your on time off from work, just relax enjoy yourself and you will now when you are upto going again. I think i will be going back about Feb for a FET
Haydos for tomorrow
AFM well I am looking forward to christmas, just bought myself an amazing little outfit and a shoe voucher that will be doubled in jan but i also got the VIP pass so I can go in on the 28th so cannot wait to go shoe shopping. Also cant wait to see DD's face when she sees her trampoline it is all she wants since her bday was ruined when her bike arrived 3wks late so this will be a great suprise. DH has already started to put the thing together and its huge I am a little unsure where its going to fit its being put together next door and DD and I drove past this morning and she got alittle excited because the old guy next door has one......I can picture the elderly couple sneeking out and having ago while no one is watching (they can hardly walk)....I am pretty sure DD thinks they do coz why else would they have a tramp lol
My friend just had a baby girl so cant wait to have some snuggles and hopefully be able to give a bottle. for some inspiration for the LTIW my friend's DH has poor/low sperm she has one DS4 and has had to other pregnancies before she had to do IVF and on 1st go with semi ok embies and with no frosties left just delivered a small but healthy girl alittle christmas miracle.
I just wanted to wish evey one a merry christmas and hope santa brings a sack full of happiness. Wish you all a year full of miracles in 2012

Hey girls, If I don't get on before and, have a great Chrissy and bring on the new year miricals!
Lovebug, the trampoline story is funny! I'm trying to imagine my (older but not elderly) neighbours having a go...not in a million years!
Your DD will love the surprise!
Star, getting everything sorted sooner rather than later will avoid using your precious embies before they have the absolute best chance. Delays suck, but I wish I had that MIR scan years ago to correctly diagnose the septum!
Jamison, enjoy your time off work Hun. Make loads of YOU time.
It's good that you have managed to get your stress levels down. I wasnt handling it well over the years of TTC and ended up having a breakdown in jan of this year. I had the stress, anxiety and accute deppression. Ive managed to kick the deppression and manage the stress, but the anxiety still pops up now and then. If you need to, see someone about your stress if you feel it building up.
It's hard enough knowing what the problem is let alone having unexplained. Before my MRI that found the septum I was put in the kallmanns plus unexplained category. That didn't sit well with me I had to know why!
Lily, I'm so stocked about your scan xx
Arm, I've been getting discolouration and a bit of spotting that has me on edge a bit. But my scan is on fri so I'm trying to chill out
to everyone else xx
