    how do you ladies cope with people asking you 'when are you having kids?' I'm getting it a lot now that DH & I have been married for a year and it's really starting to get to me. I just say 'next year probably' at the moment, but that might not be the case, and if it's not they will just keep on and on asking.

    Also, one of my friends is about five months pregnant, but yesterday was the first time I've seen her since she announced it. I thought I'd be ok, but after hearing that it only took them two months of trying to conceive etc, it just makes me sad how lucky they are that they can just have a baby, keep their savings, go on holidays, pay off their house etc, whilst we will have to pour all our money into something that might not even work. How do you ladies cope with stuff like that?

    Hi heartstringz I know exactly how you feel. We were blessed to conceive dd on our first ivf cycle in 2009. Thankfully we were married exactly one year when we found out I was pregnant so luckily we avoided many of those questions. But now dd is just over 2 people think its appropriate to ask those question and it's just as hurtful. They just assume we can conceive naturally and easily because we already have dd. I suppose for us, we are using the line "we'll see dd is quite a handful at the moment" which is usually accompanied by her trying to talk over me, proving just how spirited she is. Little do they know we have been trying since she was 12 months with 1 failed fet thaw and 2 failed icsi cycles. It's never going to get any easier. We were really careful with who we told when we first began ivf because we worried it may never happen. So only a handful of people know she is our ivf miracle. I think you just need to come up with a line you feel comfortable with. "who knows when the time is right" might be a good one. "there's a few things we need to get sorted first so who knows". This could be anything really, but it also quite true for medical reasons.

    With your friend, well that is hard to answer. Ivf has made me jealous and bitter, I will admit. I want nothing more than another bub and find myself staring longingly at newborns. My dd is fully toilet trained, in her own bed, speaks well, weaned from bottles. The only thing baby related is that she has a dummy still. Those two years gone so fast and I stupidly had such high hopes we could have two close in age. Life certainly throws us curve balls. I try to believe that we all get road blocks and lessons to learn in life. Some people battle cancer, others suffer depression, long term unemployment, losing a child, etc etc. for now, we have been given infertility. Yes, it's easy to look at your friend and think she is eternally blessed getting a bfp easily, savings, holidays. But she doesn't know what road block or lessons might fall upon her. And neither do you. Try to count your blessings rather than your losses. And as I type that, I will try to remind myself as well! xo

    I need to ramble - if i ramble to non ivf people they dont really understand. So sorry ladies you are the brunt of my thoughts this morning.

    This two week wait is driving me crazy. I don't like to wish my life away and find myself doing so until Thursday - bhcg day! I am becoming totally obessed by this one moment in time. How to stop? I have been doing home pregnancy tests each day since last wednesday - thanks for the tip Frostysmum. I am using first response early test and have noticed that each morning that line is indeed getting darker. This mornings line is as dark as the control line -I am (10dp5dt) I don't want to allow myself get too excited here. But a little part of me is doing the happy dance on the inside. I did the first hpt before my second shot of preganyl so I could have some type of baseline. My thoughts are that as the preganyl is excreted by the body, the line on the hpt would begin to fade. Mine has continually become darker each day, today is 6 days since preganyl. I have researched all there is about preganyl and from what I can see it peaks at 72 hours and the begins to fall. This information considered gives me a lot of hope that Thursday is indeed going to be a great day. Thank you for listening. Good luck everyone else out there. Will keep you posted as my insanity grows!

    I reckon it's it bfp because my pregnyl boosters always faded each day. Also with my chemical pregnancy/early miscarriage in may the line didn't get any darker just stayed quite light. Keep thinking positive

    Bala2 I think you have good reason to be doing the happy dance. Testing through 12 cycles, I can tell you that normally by 6 days post injection the line is only squint visible and takes a while to properly show. The cycles I've had a BFP, it comes up almost right away and continues to darken. I think it sounds hugely promising for you I wish I had tips for the insanity part but I don't - there is a reason it's called HPT Hell! If you can go to a movie today or find anything that uses up some time and distracts even a little, it's better than trawling Google. That much I do know!
    Best of luck tomorrow!

    Thanks Nicole and Brisvagusmaum for the tips and support. It is my first time doing this and I pray my last. The whole process is a crazy rollorcoster in so many ways for everyone. This forum has given me hope and strength which is just what you need during these insane days.

    My morning rant -
    Well I have become a little obsessed with the good old hpt, testing twice yesterday! I know I should drop it and wait formthe bhcg, but that little voice tells me to check! So last night the pregnancy line came up immediately as it did this morning. It came up darker than the control line this morning. Only now my husband and I are really getting excited as today at noon is 7 days since 1500 of preganyl. So we pretty sure it is not the preganyl showing and I am pregnant. We have decided that today is the day to have the blood test. I am going to have it at noon and will get results this afternoon. I need to know today - i am terribly impatient. The nurses at the clinic said I could take the bhcg today if I really want to. Off course I really want to know a day early, who wouldn't. So of I go today. Very excited to know my level. I have a good feeling. I feel pregnant. Tired, sore girls, no AF, litte queazy from bin smells and bad odours. All symptoms I had in my last pregnancy. Have a good wednesday one and all.

    Bhcg was 496 today - defiantly a good positive. We are over the moon. First hurdle complete. A few more to go. It will be a healthy pregnancy from here on.
