    As for the trip, might be right in the middle of things and you don't know when you will be triggering yet... Hopefully will be before the 3 week mark, but might be better to discuss this with the nurses or your specialist, see what they think!

    How exciting though!!! Wishing you a quick bfp!!!! This site is great support, even though it has been a bit quiet of late!!

    How is everyone else going? Sorry to hear about the bfn tls!!!! Try try again!!!! It's devastating for a while though isn't it, and then you start to feel a bit better...

    As for myself, sorry been way off the radar for a while... Taking a break! had the appointment with my fs this morning, did not go exactly as I had hoped... I was expecting her to say yep keep going with the ovulation induction... However, she does not like that I have taken so many cycles, only wants me to do 2 more cycles of ovulation induction, defiantly with IUI this time, and then if those two don't work, it's onto ivf... Not exactly sure how I feel about this... I was hoping for a few more tries. But she said by now I should be preg if the natural way is going to work, so try iui for 2 attempts, and then it's time to get serious...

    So gonna start taking provera to bring on af. Cause of course, nothing has happened... I hate my body!!!! Aarg!!!!!

    How are u other gals going????
    Hi mam ! I know how you feel about not having an appoint go the way you think. I balled my eyes out when I went to one appoint and the fs said to straight to ov induction with iui. I was all psyched ready to just get ov induction but then when she said I should do iui with it I was gutted. Can't imagine what I'll be like if I have to continue onto ivf.

    Afm I am on cd 8 jabbing away. First bloods today with e at 348 alot higher than last month at this time.

    Hi girls sorry I have been MIA for a while, haven't really been focussing on TTC much as life has been throwing us other challenges. Still on my cycle off waiting for AF to arrive but CD34 and not sure if it will, as don't think I have O'd on my own will wait a bit longer to see if any signs of it, then will have to take provera again. I really don't feel good about taking provera, it makes me feel so sick and gross, really doesn't agree with me. Oh well, such is life.

    Sorry I don't have a chance to reply to everyone individually but I am thinking of you all & hope you are doing well, we need a BFP soon!!!

    Hey Mam,

    Hopefully your last two attempts, only turn into last one attempt. How many will that be in total including the remaining two. I feel very similarly about not wanting to try IVF unless absolutely necessary.

    dimsim- welcome. It can be tricky to fit in the blood tests/visits etc, I know when I first started with my FS no one actually told me that the blood test at the pathology lab attached would be bulk billed, I asked if I could get them from QML (across the road from me) and they gave me blood slips, but I was paying around $110 per blood test for several weeks! I guess if its just a one off while you were away that might not be so bad?

    I have just finished my 3rd cycle, this was the first one where I got extra shots of hcg during the 2ww. First two cycles AF arrive exactly 2 weeks after the trigger shot, but this month, I'm day 19 now post trigger with no sign of AF......

    Have others had this experience where AF doesnt arrive after trigger shot?Do others also get top up shots of hcg during their 2ww?

    I'm having blood test tomorrow. Does this mean I will probably need to go on the pill to have AF?

    I had an emotional week last week, I just knew it hadnt worked. I was feeling better, and just wanting to get on with the next cycle. I'll be devastated if I have to put the next round off for another few weeks......

    Hey shouldn't be this hard!

    So u are not preggers?? Have u done a urine test? Chemical pregnancy?? I haven't heard of it not bringing your period, but I have been quite late before... So late I went for a blood test, they said my levels were in my boots so I could start injecting again, THEN I got my period.. haha

    This will be my 5th injections cycle in total. Something that my fs said yesterday that I wish I had known about before, is that between pregnancies they only like to do 6 cycles of injections with ovulation induction... She said that after 6 times it has been suggested that the drugs can start to increase your risk of ovarian cancer and uterine cancer, and that they like to go straight to ivf after this time (pregnancy drastically decreases your cancer risk, so they count that as back to 0- if that makes sense)... IF I had known this I would have done IUI from the start!! Another crap factor, is that my first cycle was not with my current husband, it was with my ex husband... So unfortunately, even though it was 5 years ago, it still counts because it was still in between pregnancies. So I don't even get 6 attempts with my husband... really wish that they had explained this protocol to me beforehand. Feel totally shocked and devastated looking at ivf... I just assumed that we had another 6 months at least with ovulation induction... Really devastated! And now I feel even more pressure going Into these next two cycles...

    On the up side, bloods show that I have ovulated sometime in the past 2 weeks on my own, probably with the four recruited follicles... No wonder I have been so moody!!! So they expect me to get my period in a week or so.

    A lot to think about, I have had to seriously assess my life and have decided to give up uni for the moment, that stress is the last thing I need if we want to get pregnant, with exams coming up and all... Need more me time.

    Thanks for the replies girls! Think it's going to be a rough few months coming up! But u know, if we do need to move onto ivf, our chances are very good!!! This is such a roller coaster, I thought I had been through some hard times in my life, but this is something different!!!

    Xoxoxo

    Sorry forgot to mention, I always get booster shots, the hcg keeps your progesterone up, I usually hae one a week after trigger shot. Keeps the side effects nice and fresh too... The nausea,cramps and horridness!

    Congrats on AF mam, mine arrived yesterday as well, but I was expecting mine. Fingers crossed for a good cycle mam.
    i had my 1st bloods this morning & all beautiful for the start of my cycle. So starting gonal-f in the morning, starting on 37.5, then go back for more bloods next Monday. Starting to feel a little excited now, but still scared ****less.
    read that link mam, & some of it made me laugh & some made me cry. I def don't feel alone in this journey anymore.
    goodluck
