    Hey Girls

    Just had to get online and vent...ARRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

    I am so very p!ssed off. Just went off at DH for washing dog bowls in the kitchen sink!!!! I got extremely stressed out and cracked an absolute wobbly. Then I decontaminated the area with domestos.

    To think, all the trouble to get a positive and then this.

    I tried to explain to him that it was not a good thing granted the immunosuppressants and risk of cross contamination. If only they would stop for 30 seconds and think.

    Then I cracked at him telling him I was then exposing myself to harsh chemicals (domestos) and the stress of this woulkdn't help either.

    Bloody hell, can't things in life just be simple.

    oops..I wash my dogs bowl in the kitchen sink all the time..am I not supposed to.

    Try not to stress Laned..it will just do your head in. Honestly I eat ham, have eaten soft cheeses, have had the occasional glass of wine or champagne and I am still pregnant. The only product I wont use is stuff like mould killer in the shower..just use the good ole Jif.

    Hang in there.

    I wash both the cat bowl and dog bowl in the kitchen sink too. And I had ham one day due to bad craving for a ham sandwich!

    Laned, Big hugs ... I remember this second two week wait - for the scan - as being almost worst than the first. In IVF we have lost our innocence and optimism, and we almost know too much about the risks to pregnancy, we lose sight of the fact that most of the time, implantation leads to pregnancy leads to a healthy baby - our 'bad luck' in the past, of miscarriage is incredibly hard to get past, even when we know that most women who miscarry go on to have healthy pregnancies leading to live births. On the other hand, our DHs, if they are anything like mine, just decide to go into complete denial, block out the risks and engage in behaviour which feels like it is designed to drive us up the wall - if not actually imperil things! My DH decided to be helpful and make lunch for us early in this pregnancy - and you will not believe this, seriously - made me a salad sandwich with brie AND ham on it. BH will censor all the words I actually used so you will have to just imagine my response! After I calmed down I decided to have a discussion with him about how anxious I was, and while I knew the risks of listeria etc were very, very small, it felt like these were the only things I COULD actually control, and that I needed HIS help to get through the wait and to do these things. I actually gave him some ideas on things he could do to help (uh, apart from walking on eggshells, obviously! ) like letting me sleep in, and cleaning the bathroom so I wouldn't have to deal with the fumes. He DID try and most of all I think he started to understand how much anxiety I was actually carrying around. I am really confident this is a healthy pregnancy for you - all signs point to it - but I completely understand your need to do what you can to control the environment and eliminate as many risks as possible. Just hang in there, and know that everyone here is hoping that you see a lovely strong heartbeat at your scan (and know also that the bite of brie and ham did no harm to our little one, kicking away and flashing his bum at us on last week's scan, measuring perfect for 22 weeks!)

    TRH, just really angry to ready your post - just so angry at how unfair the world is, that a lovely person like you has to go through this - every woman should be able to have a baby, its just so bloody unfair. I sensed a lot of peace in your posting, that you are comfortable with moving on - I hope I have that right.

    Frosty, re your posting on CGH, can that only be used on a fresh cycle or can it be used on a frosty? I have a blastocyst that we are planning on putting back at some point, just wanted to see if CGH might be an option there?

    laned---TFT is really good with her words and wisdom. I can relate to the extreme anxiety with the added hormones you're on. I think I also had a few tanties during that time and had words with DH, in the end we had a talk about how we felt and I realise now that a lot of my over-reactions were making me the psycho IVF b!tch from hell. I actually feel less emotional labile now that I'm off the drugs.

    TFT---It is an expensive exercise to do just one embryo, I'm pretty sure they can thaw the frosty and biopsy it for analysis. I think it adds another $6-7000 non Medicare claimable. Not sure what stage they take the sample either. Some people actually do a few fresh cycles and have all the embryos analyzed and freeze only the good ones for FETs later. By the time you're ready for another FET, there will be new technologies out.

    Thanks Girls, I think it must just be the Perioperative Nurse coming out in me, as IVF or not I would have had an issue with dog bowls in the 'clean' sink. We have a perfectly functional laundry sink for that. I do agree that my response would have undoubtedly been exacerbated by the hormones and anxiety.

    It has taken so long and with so many failures to even get those 2 lines on the POAS. I seriously don't want anything to jeopardise any opportunity of motherhood. I am far too aware that my time on this roller-coaster is limited and I really just want it to work this time.

    The waiting for the scan is doing my head in. I had sore boobs until 2 days ago and now nothing. Furthermore, I have absolutely no other pregnancy signs, so who knows!!! Come on Monday!!!

    TFT - Thank you. You always know the right things to say and gave me a laugh. I am so pleased your little exhibitionist is doing well.

    Zult - Maybe we should send our DH's on a fishing trip together (LOL).

    Laned - so know how you feel - men really don't get it @ times! I didn't know you shouldn't wash your dog bowls in the sink? I always do, but will start using the laundry now

    I started Gonal F injections today my first cycle - I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. I'm doing a GnRH antagonist cycle...has anyone else done this one? Positive from today is that ultrasound showed no new cysts since my op and everything is looking good to go. FS said that because I'm 30 he will only transfer 1 embryo - he looked at me and said 'is that ok?', I am happy to go with what he recommends (he is the specialist after all) but now I'm wondering should I have requested 2?

    Katrina - it is your choice re the number of embryos to transfer. Trasnferring two really only increases the change of a BFP by about 2%, whereas it increases the chance of mulitples by as much as 25% I believe. Our clinic has a policy of only transferring 1 unless you have had 3 or more failed cycles or are over 35. Good luck with the cycle. We did an antagonist cycle for our last one but we used puregon rather than gonal-f as the fsh. Yay for no new cysts, that is great news. Any idea when your first scan to check follies will be?

    Laned - men just don't seem to understand sometimes . I have been reading lots of stuff in the past couple of weeks and many ladies have mentioned that they don't seem to get many symptoms until after 6 weeks. Hang in there hun, I am keeping everything crossed that you scan on monday brings only good news.

    TRH - I was gutted to read your post. It seems so damn unfair this road we travel sometimes. I dearly wish that there was something that I could do for you.

    AFM: Well we decided that if the last cycle failed that I would do a detox, which I started on Sunday, this takes 6 weeks. After this I will start the synarel (and continue with that for 10 weeks), then have a normal cycle off synarel before we start another IVF cycle. Across the time after the detox I plan to ensure that we stick to really healthy eating ensuring no chocolate or sugar during that time (will be sooooo hard). I want to loose at least 10kgs and get down to 65kgs. If I have not done so before June then I won't cycle. This is my incentive to stick to the healthy eating and make sure that I exercise at least 4 times a week. I have also ordered some Maca capsules and Royal Jelly capsules to add to the list of other things that I already take.
    We are planning on using 50% dh/donor sperm on our next cycle to see if that makes any difference to our results. I am also going to push for the luveris again.

    I am as yet undecided if we should seek a second opinion. I don't believe that I will change FS (as our current one is prepared to try pretty much what I want at this stage), but think that it might be worthwhile seeing Wazza to see what he thinks would be a way forward. Thoughts??
