    Good luck Snuddy xx

    You will be fine!!

    Rainbow babies for everyone I say!!!

    Hi all,

    I'm new here - my name is Elsa, I'm 31, I've been with my partner for 10 years, and we're trying to make a baby at the moment. We've had one failed attempt, and I'm in the middle of tww again now...

    This experience is really doing my head in ... I feel like I could do with some support! I've had a very rough time the last six weeks or so for various reason, and I've also found this process of ttc to be very emotional.

    So, I looking forward to getting to know a few of you, and sharing our ups and downs. I've also just started to write a blog about this journey - partly as an outlet for myself, and partly to support any other people for whom my story may resonate. http://nantosuelta-conception.blogspot.com.au/

    Thanks for letting me be part of your forum,

    Elsa.

    I'm not sure i can give you any tips on improving the TTC journey and TWW... It's just completely nerve wracking and all consuming in my experience!
    But its just part of the stresses of being a parent I guess. Starts before they are even made!
    But just remember to take time to be with your partner away from everything so you don't loose yourselves. Wishing you lots of luck for this cycle! Xx

    Hi everyone! :waves:
    Sorry for jumping in here but thought id introduce myself.

    I'm a 26yr old & my partner is 31 this yr and we have a 13 mnth old ds. Hoping to try for #2 later this year.

    I just wanted to send u all big hugs. Ttc is the most emotional journey and i think only other same sex cpls truely know the heartache of ttc without sperm on tap. it is a hard and emotional time. if anyone wants to chat feel free to pm me. Never give up hope! Sending baby dust to everyone! Hugs

    Hi everyone!!

    I've noticed I tend to go quiet between attempts...
    I'm guessing its because with such long cycles I can't afford, emotionally, to be thinking about everything all the time.

    I *think* the metformin is working, but I've no idea.
    Still have to wait til May 23 to see a FS.

    Has anyone here ever had to deal with pcos on top of not having a sperm factory at home? lol

    Hi all,
    Went to the FS yesterday and it went well.
    Thanks for all the support.
    Purpz he is testing me for Pcos so we could both be in the same boat.
    If the tests come back positive I will have to look into getting IVF.
    We are both really excited about starting our journey and are having the usual worries at the moment.
    We would love to hear from you guys regarding the cost of IUI as we have been given a few different quote's.
    Also if anyone had gone through the City Fertility Group we would love to hear from you.
    Good luck and positive vibes to all who need it.

    DP 32 Me 33
    Our journey is just beginning

    I often wonder how you are going.
    It definitely is hard and TTC can become sooooo consuming. Glad to hear you've noticed some changes for the better with the metformin.

    May is just around the corner so hopefully you'll get some answers and some positive news soon!!

    I know pcos doesn't automatically mean you'll require IVF.
    I hope things don't need to go that far for you x

    We're doing at home insemination... So can't help with iui costs x

    I did find a website for the fertility centre in Danenong.
    They do IVF but the costs are very different to other IVF facilities....
    They did list their costs on the page though x

    thanks for the welcome - and almai, yes, I do find it to be all-consuming! Which is a bit of a problem since I have a job that requires concentration, and also I can't breath a word about any of this at work.

    Firsttimemum - good luck trying for #2! Can I ask, did you go through a clinic, or were you successful at home?

    And Purpz - I don't have PCOS, but I do have low AMH and I also have a history of endometriosis. But I want to keep trying at home for a while because I'm not sure how I'd cope with going through a clinic, emotionally and practically.

    No positive news from me yet, but I think I ovulated on the 1st or 2nd, so i guess there is hope still. A question for those of you who have had a BFP - do you know at what day the sticks went from having nothing to having a faint line?

    Elsa.
