    Oh Zakmick, you are not alone. The rollercoaster does not end with a BFP for some of us....it was in fact harder after my BFP...I was constantly anxious and even depressed that it was too good to be true. And that made it really hard for me to enjoy my first trimester let alone telling people I was pregnant. I know everyone would be happy for us cos they knew we had a long journey but it is just too scary to tell people. Then came the horrid NT scan when I cried so much. I never anticipated going through more sh#t like that. My tummy was showing and I just didnt want people to see that I was pregnant cos my baby could have down syndrome! Did the amnio at 15weeks and thereafter fearing I might miscarry after the procedure. Finally everything seems on track now at 17weeks but still I havent told many people...Only the forums know...I am just cautiously moving along. I think our journey really made us like that and I wish I wish I can put down all the stupid fears and believe everything will be fine from now on.

    Mom: I read everything you went through with your scan and that was horrible. I don't want to go through that. I am happy to not have the scan or tests at all but DH is not telling me what's going on in his head, we still have a few weeks to go.
    It's such a stressful time... But I keep saying we have jumped 3 hurdles so far, we got the BFP, we made it to scan date, we saw the heartbeat..( never achieved any of that before). I think the whole pregnancy is going to be like this.
    I would be struggling so much not telling many people Mom ( i struggle with secrets like this) when do you think you will start to be comfortable in telling others?

    Zakmick honey I feel for you it's all stressful and I blame Ivf and dr stupid google because we know too much I'm not sure if I'm wrong but I thought there was a bt you could do to see if you are high risk for downs to confirm if you the other test or is that the nt test?? Sorry I have never made it that far but I have heard that ?? I wish I could come over and make u smile at this crappy time but you have just gotta believe (and mum2oneds you) that these bubs are hear to stay because you are wonderful woman and you deserve it thinking of you heaps

    Mom2One I will going to Monash for another stim cycle if the FET's don't work. I will have to look into the HA-ICSI, sounds like something which could be very useful for us. We did manage to get a 100% fertilisation rate on my 7 eggs.

    My DH had Testicular Cancer, he managed to Sperm Bank before Chemo but it's not the best quality but apparently better quality than what he has now after Chemo. I have asked the FS to tell us about his quality of sperm, we were only told not great.

    Leanne I'm not sure what you got wrong?

    But I would love to know all about your FS Thank you

    Zakmick, I really hope you can begin to enjoy your pregnancy soon. We all understand feeling like we cannot be certain of anything, but we just have to stay positive.

    When my DH was very sick, I was so frightened he would die, negativity took over and I didn't cope very well but I learnt to hope. Now I try to stay positive, even though sometimes it's so hard to see. Miracles do happen, I still have my DH even after some doctors told us it wasn't looking very good...

    Hi All.

    Im from melbourne too.

    Here is my post from another thread to fill you in.

    Well our IVF journey has been very fast so far.

    We decided about 3 months ago to do IVF. Saw the FS about 2.5 months ago. We had already applied for relevant docs, so headed to Monash IVF. Saw them about 2 months ago.

    CD 1 - 3/5/12
    CD 2 - 4/5/12 - STARTED NIGHT INJECTION
    CD 5 - 7/5/12 - US & BT
    CD 6 - 8/5/12 - STARTED MORNING INJECTION AS WELL
    CD 9 - 10/5/12 THURSDAY - US & BT - TOLD TO STOP ALL MEDS AND TO TAKE MY TRIGGER SHOT THAT NIGHT AT 6.30PM.
    BOOKED IN FOR EGG PICK UP AND TESTICULAR BIOPSY SPERM RETRIEVAL FOR CD11.

    So today is CD11 - We arrived at admission at 7.15. My husband went in for his procedure. Then I went in. We were through recovery and out in the car by 10am.

    We were told they picked up 11 eggs and there was lots of swimmers.
    So now we wait. We will get the embryo #'s on Monday. Then we will go back for the transfer on Thursday.

    Sorry i dont know the technical names or med names, I try not to get caught up in it. I just do everything Im told and trust my body and specialists.

    Im told that the amount of eggs we got today was great. Also that my body repsonded to the drugs perfectly. Everythngn so far has gone well.

    I had my moments on the drugs, up and down emotions and hormones. Not too much bloating and not much pain.

    Ive had minimal spotting today and pain not as severe and O pain or period pain. Went out for lunch!
    Hubby is doing ok, as long as he doesnt bump himself. LOL!

    So we are obviously doing ICSI. Why? Well we have 4 children. 2 from my previous partner and my husband has 2 from his ex wife. He had a vasectomy 6 years ago. As we all know life changes and now we have decided to try for a child together.

    Fingers crossed. Im not sure really what happens next. Ill just be doing a pregnancy test everyday next week! lol!


    They say we have a 75% chance first cycle because of my age, good health, great fertility and the fact we have had children previously.

    Looking forward to reading more of your stories.
    XXXX

    Hi girls,
    im back on this thread now since I am out of the 2WW now, got our second BFN on Thursday I am having a bit of delayed reaction I guess. I really tried not to cry too much and put it out of my mind when I found out, now I feel so exhausted and down. Getting bad mood swings, wondering if it has anything to do with coming off hormones suddenly??

    I am having a 2 month maybe longer break, want to focus on health and lose more weight. Can't believe I've been TTC for almost 3 yrs! This yr is flying by, I've only just completed my 2nd ivf attempt, I feel like its a race against time! I know I'm still young (that's what everyone says but I don't feel like that) my little niece is almost 5, I desperately wanted to give her a Little cousin before she grows up! My sisters are both much older than me, all my other nephews and nieces are all grown up, I really dreamed of my kids growing up with a little cousin...wonder when it will happen for me?

    Zakmick, I hope you can begin to enjoy the pregnancy soon. Although I've never been pregnant I can imagine I would be feeling the same, unable to relax that everything was ok. You are right though you have made it this far without any problems, hope it all continues this way.

    Four2five - 11 eggs is awesome, hope you get good news on the amount of embryos. Do you go to melb ivf or monash? Sounds like you recovered really well from egg pick up - me not so much when I had mine last yr! All the best for your transfer on Thursday. Great they gave u 75% chance, sounds very promising, looking forward to hearing how you go.

    Well a quick update before I head to bed. Chloe Ella decided to make a very surprising entrance to the world on Saturday. She was 3.07kg (6.12oz) and born at 11.20 on 12/5. Waters broke about 1am on Sat morning with contractions starting about 6am but not too bad....drip started at 7am because I was step b pos (holy crap now that hurt) Epi at 8am, pushed 5 times with one contraction and out she came. No tears or grazes.

    She is doing really well and we came home today.
