    Well we went to the FS and next step is laparoscopy (and all the associated tests).

    Hubbys tests came back reasonably fine and my Day 21 tests confirmed ovulation so we are currently organizing for the op next month.

    Anyone done it, any tips on how to prepare, what to do on the day and/or how do you recover?

    I had a laparoscopy for fibroids many years ago so it might be the same as that? I was just in hospital for the day and had a stitch in my belly button and one at the side. I think I had the week off work as a precaution but I was really OK after 1-2 days. It really wasn't too bad at all. Unfortunately for me they couldn't clean up my fibroids while they were in there but I think they do aim to fix any issues at the time if they possibly can!?

    Not sure if that helps, but let me know if you have any other questions.

    Best wishes for the laparoscopy next month, Vivre. I hope it goes well and your recovery is quick.

    So......

    It seems that a few days can make a big difference. I peed on lots of sticks and got lots of BFNs last week, and was convinced from Thursday onwards that I had PMS and AF was about to arrive early. On Friday night I told DH our chances this cycle were 0.0001% and settled back to wait for AF's arrival.

    By Sat afternoon when I still hadn't started spotting I tried another HPT... and there was a faint second line. On Sunday I peed on four different HPTs, and more faint second lines. Finally, a blood test this morning has confirmed it - we're 4 weeks UTD.

    It seems somewhat surreal and I don't think it's really sunk in yet - at the moment I'm largely excited about getting a BFP and don't think I've even started to comprehend that it (hopefully) means a baby in 8 months time. Now I'm just trying to think positive thoughts and send out positive vibes for a trouble-free next 8 weeks (being aware that this is just the first hurdle).

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts while you're TTC (and thanks NAT256 for seeting up this forum) - it's been very cathartic to find that other people have the same fears and worries. I'm sorry that it hasn't been an easy road for all of you thus far, and genuinely hope that you'll all soon be able to report your own + results, by whatever means necessary. I hope to be able to celebrate more (very deserved) BFPs with you soon.

    That is absolutely brilliant news Gentoo!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! It makes me so happy to read that there is success. I'm sure we'll all get our turn eventually and it keeps me really positive. How exciting!!!
    So how long were you trying in the end?

    AFM... we just came back from a lovely long weekend away to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. All set for our second year of marriage being the baby one

    Hey congrats Gentoo - that is awesome!! It really does give us all hope and warm fuzzies when someone has success - yay!! I haven't been receiving emails of recent posts so I thought things were very quiet on our forum! Then I went onto to the app and had to read two weeks worth!!

    Well my AF is due now so you never know. I would be very surprised though as DTD was very half arsed of late as I had come through my stressful previous employment and was still a bit cranky. . .

    Anyway back on the temps topic - I tried so hard to do it but I lost interest some days and other days I forgot and peed - oops! I haven't done it for ages but maybe I should?

    Also, I went to a gyno/obstr last year just to get things looked at. He said I was good to go, gave me some tips and said if I haven't had success in 6 months then to go back. I haven't exactly followed his tips so will be a bit more focussed and leave it a bit longer before I go back. The good thing is that he was a great bloke so at least I don't have to shop around when the time comes! (always the optimist!)

    Has anyone heard of Beth Kiley? She has a 96 page ebook on tips for getting pregas which I have (I found it for free so don't anyone pay for it!) if I knew how to upload the PDF for you all I would . . Instructions welcome

    Sending you all positive baby vibes

    Yay Gentoo! Yep, great news like that keeps us positive too how long had you been trying, in the end?

    AF arrived on Sunday so I start my third cycle of Clomid today. The FS says if this doesn't work we will try something else next month. Maybe iui. Fx.

    Thanks guys. It's nice to show that over 35 doesn't mean "over it"!

    Umm, I feel kind of sheepish - this was our first month of actually trying (ie. being in the same place at O time). And yes, I've bought a lotto ticket for this weekend. (Very much aware of how fortunate we've been!)

    Sorry to thread crash (feeling a little naughty-I'm only 32 Lol)!
    I'm a theatre nurse Vivre and I haven't personally had any laparoscopic surgery myself but I have seen many of these procedures.
    It is really important to follow any pre-op instructions from your specialist and anaesthetist. Make sure you fast for the times you are told. Sometimes following laparoscopic surgery you can experience shoulder tip pain. This is caused by the gas used intra-operatively (that inflates your abdomen) irritating your diaphragm.
    The surgery is minimally invasive and you will most likely have local anaesthetic injected at the port sights to help with any pain. Any discomfort post operatively will depend on how much your specialist needs to do. If they just have a quick look around your pelvis and abdomen you might feel surprisingly pain free when you wake up. My advice would to keep on top of any pain post op with analgesia prescribed...don't let it get out of hand! I think you will be fine though
    All the best with your op and TTC!
