    Has anyone done back to back cycles of ivf at Concept? I am seeing Dr Thompson tomorrow after swapping from Dr mazz and was interested to know if anyone had.

    elkalemi – hi, sorry can’t help with back to back cycles. Hope this one goes well for you.

    Adden – it is a bit weird being at the clinic so constantly and then not having anything to do with them. I got a surprise bill from them last week so had to ring to ask if it was really mine because I asked to pay all my bills on my last visit. Was a bit annoyed to have more to pay!!

    Boomerang – welcome back. May this current IVF journey be short and sweet.

    kdsd – good luck with the cycle. Hope you can start soon.

    Sariele – I hope that this cycle is more successful than the last one and that the separation from your DH is worth it.

    Samarasmum – bring on AF so that you can start your cycle again. I think a puppy will definitely keep you distracted enough during the TWW.

    Tj79 – I was the same, swinging from positive to negative. I like to think about alternate plans for the future so it helped me to think “what will I do if this cycle doesn’t work”. I didn’t want to force myself to think positively as I was worried that would backfire on me. I tried to stick with mindfulness – experiencing and accepting the emotion that I was feeling at that point in time.

    Littlebitbrit – congrats on the transfer, I hope the TWW flies past for you. Seven frozen is an excellent number and that little bit of insurance for the future.

    SJG – hugs for the horrible journey that you have been on. I can’t imagine how awful that must have been for you. Welcome to the thread and good luck for your current cycle.

    Catchick – hugs and thoughts to you.

    Hilton – welcome back. I had a HRT FET. I was on progynova to suppress ovulation and oestrogen to plump up the lining. When the lining was thick enough they transferred the emby and I went on to progesterone to support implantation. Then if there is implantation you have to remain on the hormones for a while as there was no ovulation so no corpus luteum to support a pregnancy. It was pretty easy and I found it a whole lot less stressful than a stim cycle. I imagine that a natural FET would be even easier as there should be less drugs!

    Perths – good luck at the OB, hope bubs moves for you.




    Hi to everyone else. There are so many people on here now, it’s great.


    AFM – trying to get motivated at work after four days in Margaret River. My care factor is not very high at the moment.

    Leah - I think it depends on what kind of meds you're on for the cycles. My FS wouldn't ever do back to back cycles if they were medicated.

    Adden - fingers crossed for your GTT. I was scared about doing mine as I have PCOS (but I'm not overweight) and so it was a risk. Still, it's better to find out sooner, rather than later if things aren't quite right.
    Anyway, it's a small price to pay for having that 8 week scan and seeing (and hearing!) that heart beating. Risk of miscarriage is so small after that. Fingers crossed all goes smoothly for you

    Boomerang - good luck with your appoinment tomorrow!

    SJG - Welcome to the thread. It sounds like you've had a very long journey - I really hope you've passed all your speed humps and that your next cycle ends with a healthy bubba at the end of it.

    TJ79 - I hope you're not too stressed at the moment! Good thing you have your fur babies to keep you company! I'm a sucker for border collies - we had two growing up. Definitely my favourite dogs.

    Littlebitbrit - Great to hear your transfer went well. I hope your 2WW is going okay too.

    Samarasmum - good to hear you're onto the next cycle and are keeping distracted with other things! Fingers crossed you get some nice eggies growing.

    Sarile, kdsd, Zebby, Leafy and everyone else I've missed - I hope you're all going okay!

    Baby dust to everyone

    Thanks for all the kind words of support lovely ladies. Here's hoping we all have success this month. I'd be lost without my fur baby, a stocky little staffy, such great company as my dh works fifo too. Have any of you ever had your embryo transfer procedure on your own? If so were you ok? I'm considering it, but know I could take the progonova n progesterone for longer n line up the dates as needed, but I just want to get this journey going! X

    AmyEl-Congratulations! That is fantastic news, how are your feeling? DR Chu was my specialist, however Dr Barton did EPU and DR Brett did the transfer

    SJD-You are one stong lady, so sorry to hear you had to go through all that. But I am so glad to hear you have lifted yourself up and are going to continue on, i hope this journey ends soon for you.


    TJ79- Were both of your tubes removed for the same reasons? How are you finding your TWW? Hope you are keeping busy, lots of baby dust to you!


    Boomerang1982- How do you find Dr Turner, I remember people calling him the 'fertility king' when I was there a couple years ago. All the best for your FET! I don't know whether to feel excited or nervous!


    Leafy- Thank you for sharing that with me. I didn't realize FET can include more injections with them I still have a fear of needles and am not look forward to them one bit! Wonder if I can be one of the lucky ones with less drugs! Ha! Wishful thinking LOL...


    PerthS- hope everything goes smoothly for your pregnancy!


    Big hello to everyone else and thank you all so much for the warm welcome! It's kinda feels like I never left! I have been very hectic the last couple of days, my DS is turning the big ONE on Friday so have been cooking up a storm for his birthday party on Saturday. I just wish it wasn't raining this weekend, so disappointed its been beautiful weather for weeks and now it's forecasted for rain alllllll weeeeeeeek loooooooong! I made a deal with the weather gods that it can rain as hard as it wants until Saturday morning and then start up again at derby time.....fingers crossed!

    Boomerang, I love puppies, good luck with your app today. My DH has his own business so he can't quit, but he can be home if I really need him.

    Adden, congrats on the great results.

    Elkalemi, sorry, I'm at HFC, I know they do back to back cycles.

    AmyEL, hope your feeling great.

    Samaras mum, good luck with with your next cycle,

    Kdsd, good luck (again)

    Sariele, hope your time in Perth flies by, and your cycle goes to plan.

    Littlebitbrit, hope your tww isn't dragging on too much.

    Catchick, hope you are feeling ok, all the best for your next cycle.

    Hilton, yes both tubes removed, hydrosalpinx and filled with fluid. I'm glad we found that out before trying ivf, As they checked everything else out while they were in there, and that looks like it was my only problem.

    PerthS, hope baby turns and you have a trouble free delivery.

    Leafy, sounds like you should of spent a week at margret river, I love the southwest, so beautiful down that way.

    Zebby, hope you doing ok.

    SJG, I did the transfer by myself, was just like a pap with an audience, a little uncomfortable that's about it.

    AFM, I've been baking cakes and cooking extravagant meals for myself, kinda helping with the tww, 2 of my friends (who happen to breed like rabbits) have been so supportive and understanding, as is my mum and sister, also my SIL is starting her first ivf cycle soon too, although she is in Holland, she is a midwife too, so I have a great support group, even my MIL over in NZ rings and just checks on me every few days without asking any ivf questions so no pressure, it's good, I've told them all that if they don't hear from me for a while, it's cos I'm coping with it in my own ways, and not to get too excited for us if we do get a BFP, as we want to pass the first u/s hurdle if we make it that far before we tell anyone if it's looking good for us.

    Have a great day ladies, sorry if I forgot anyone, To you all

    Yup, had my first on my own and will be having the next one on my own too. Although since Mum will be there this time, I might ask her if she wants to come in for it. TBH if DH was there last time, the little room where they did it would have been way too crowded; I had an FN, FS and Embryologist in attendance. There was a chair DH could have sat on in the corner, but he would have had the FN's butt in his face.

    Does someone have to go with u or pick u up after EPU? Not that I know when it'll be yet but in case, I need someone Then I'll have to get DH to let his work know, he will need that afternoon off.. Well he might as well have the day off seeing as he needs to be there in the morning anyway lol..

    I did, but thats cause i don't do too well with the drug that they knock you out with and I wouldn't have been able to drive!
    My DH dropped me off then went to 'donate' his bit then went to work. he then came to pick me up when they called him, dropped me home and went back to work.
    that worked for us!
