    Hi girls

    So sorry I've been MIA for a few days...back at work now

    Since I'm at work I'm limited for time, but just wanted to pop in and see how everyone was going - wow, so much has happened in just a few days!

    I hope you all are doing well at your various stages - sorry, I'll have to save the personals for tomorrow when I have more time, but for now I just have to say a big CONGRATS babystepswa - you've graduated! I'm so happy for you, you certainly deserve it after all that you've been through. Hopefully you can pass some of that babydust on to the rest of us! Come on little bean, stick and grow big and strong! xx

    AFM, I haven't been coping very well during this 2WW. My lower back pains and cramping became so intensely bad that I had given up hope for this cycle and had resigned myself to the fact that it would never work... how could it possibly work when I've had two cycles with perfect blasts fail before and then have another cycle with two perfect blasts fail?

    I had a big cry on Sunday but decided anyway to POAS on Monday morning (8dp5dt) and it was BFN (although there was a very, very, very faint line - I had to squint to see it - I assumed it to be an evap line). Just to be sure, I POAS again on Monday night and it looked exactly the same. I assumed it was still BFN as the line didn't darken. I did another on Tuesday morning and again in the evening, which looked the same - still no darker. I thought that definitely meant BFN. They are cheap internet tests so I thought that must be what they all look like. Since I have 50 tests, I thought what the hey, I can spare another so I did one today (10dp5dt) and the line was very faint, but darker....could it possibly be???!! I stared at it several times this morning wondering if my luck had finally changed. So I bought a digital on my way to work and snuck away to the toilets...within seconds the words "Pregnant 1-2" came up....OMG!!!!! Is this really happening?

    OTD is tomorrow, so I am cautiously optimistic until I get the blood results. I don't want to get my hopes up. Given that I thought it was BFN, I did a huge run yesterday (10km) in the hot weather, overheated, etc...so now I'm really concerned I may have done harm to it. I feel so stupid for working myself up so much for a fail, that I may have ruined everything...

    I guess I'll just have to cross fingers and wait for the results tomorrow. Will pop in again tomorrow & let you know how things go xx

    Hi LadiesSo blood test came back..My LH has gone down to 1.1??? How can this be? Can anyone explain how the whole LH levels work?She said to me that its working and that they don't specifically test LH once Luveris is started.I'm sooooo confused... I don't know whether them going down is good or not because I thought anything as low as mine was LH Deficient.. NOOOOOOOO... Maybe I am the reason why we aren't getting pregnant as well Meanwhile, my Gonal-F has increased to 150. Possibly to increase size of eggs but I don't know.I hate this Congrats Snow Bunni!!!! Hope this is a sticky bubby for you.. Jen

    Firstly, Congratulations to babysteps first graduate for the thread and a quiet yet uber excited and hopeful congratulations to snowbunnii - looks like this is your month. As for running - don't stress. As a keen runner I asked my FS if I could still run and she said yes. My SIL walked 22km when she was first pregnant with her second child and I knew a girl at the gym that was doing full on aerobic classes well into her pregnancy. I really believe that running 10km will not have hurt your little one.

    Jeb I have no idea about LH. This is a hard and confusing ride. I have learnt to release control to a certain extent and just go with the flow not getting too exciting or too down about any of the numbers. I try to follow each instruction as it comes and hang on tight for the roller coaster ride. Hopefully one of the other ladies will be able to tell you about LH. Hang in there.

    To everyone jabbing good luck and hope you get lots of follies. To all those waiting for AF - tell her to hurry up!

    AFM - I am waiting for AF it's meant to arrive today or tomorrow as I'm meant to go for a baseline scan on Friday. Darn thing, I wish it would just get here I am ready to get this show on the road.

    Hi All hope you are doing well!


    Liilwish, sorry DF is dear fiance but i should just put DP as I never call him that. We have put off doing any more wedding organising for the next couple of months to concentrate on the IVF. It is hard having them away. DP got offered a big promotion, so we figured we should take it (pays for the IVF) and do it now, before we have kids running around and being away would be super hard. Hope your cycle is still all still going well.


    PeeJay, cool another Genea girl I basically ended up there by default because my GP recommended my FS and i've been really happy with them, the nurses are so lovely. They do seem to get very good results. Seem to be the most expensive though! My FS told us (after my parter asked if she could put two in so we could have twins) that if we wanted, she's sit and tell us for an hour why they only do 1 embryo transfer. They hardly ever do a double embryo transfer at Genea. She said its because you get a lot more complications with twins, (like miscarriage and premature birth) so they only rarely do them, only if you are over 41 or have had repeated failed cycles. But every clinic might be different? Personally we'd love twins, but i know its a lot harder to carry them.


    Jeb, that must be hard to have to have the extra drugs. Really hope that the next scan is what you're looking for and that follies are growing well. It sucks not getting the results you want. Its all so hard isn't it. Always waiting for results and phone calls and more tests. It really puts our lives on hold, and its so hard to just "relax" and not think about it. If we are successful doing a transfer, i am too dreading the TWW. I'm not looking forward to the EPU either, but its like all of this, we just have to take a deep breath and do it. It will all be worth it in the end.


    Disney, i'm exactly the same AF is meant to arrive on friday hopefully (took my last pill yesterday) and i too am keen to just get into it and get it over with. I am soooo glad i am off the pill, i hate it! I never get zits and my face looks like a pizza.


    Joozy's, sounds like you're going well! Fingers crossed for a great EPU.


    Snowbunnii, congrats thats very exciting!!! Really, really hope you get the call tomorrow to confirm. You so deserve it, you've done more than your share of cycles.


    Cal1, hope your appointment friday goes well.


    Summershine, hope AF turns up on time for you so you can start.


    AFM- took my last pill yesterday morning so hoping AF should turn up around Friday. Spoke to my clinic today, and they are so lovely so really looking forward to starting in a couple of days. My DP is so excited that we are actually starting, I just hope he doesn't get his hopes up straight away!

    Good luck snowbunni, I'm sending all my positive thoughts to you right now, hoping for a great BT result. The digital test sounds very optimistic though.

    Hi all just updating the roll call as I am now in the TWW group. Had transfer today and unfortunately the 2nd embie hadn't developed any further so wasn't suitable for freezing So really hoping this one sticks as there is no back up plan now!

    Hi girls!

    Wow this thread is pumping now!!

    Well I've found work- pt for the moment, which might work in better with ivf anyways!

    However it does mean that I am officially out for January... 😓😓
    We just can't afford it this month.. I don't want to rack up credit so it means we start our fresh cycle in february...

    I want to say a super, massive congrats again to baby steps! You must be happy- this will be a little sticky for you!

    And I wish all the January cyclers the very best of luck! I feel January is a good month! (maybe its cos my birthday is January) haha!

    I'll still pop in though!

    Xx
