MrsJaguar - re BT, that sucks, but I guess these are the compromises to keep the costs down for you. I guess if you want to have one, you can go to your gp.
Thanks Della77 (grats on your frosties!!! wow 7!!! *jealous*)and MARTTC (glad to see you are moving forward!! go you!!)
Mrs Jo - I am sorry to hear you have depression... I too have been in that dark place (hence the black dog as an avatar - to constantly remind myself never to fall back down to that place. I put the TTC thing on hold until I got better...that was nearly 3 years ago. You are very brave taking on IVF while dealing with depression at the same time. This is a terribly emotional ride when you don't have depression. Just keep trying to find the positives, even in the face of disappointment...easier said than done. Keep strong and look after yourself.
franniesplace - can your DH do his bit at home before you go to the clinic? so long as you get the sample there within the hour. This most recent cycle, for us was on Anzac day, so now one there for him to do the sample at the clinic and had to do it at home. we live 45mins from the clinic...so no recovery time for the poor boy.. it was straight into the car. I kept the jar with the precious cargo in my cleavage to keep them at body temp lol.
Good luck BellaVista
AFM: The call from the clinic this afternoon started with "congratulations you're pregnant" yay!! but HCG is only 53 (11dp5dt), so at the lower end of the range. I am not claiming a BFP until I know it's going in the right direction... another blood test set for Monday and also I have no other symptoms.... still on progesterone and progynova until then.... and more POAS over the weekend because I can't wait for Monday...lol.
