    Hi Ladies, my DP works FIFO, 4 on/1 off and it is proving very difficult! I am currently looking at options of having his sperm frozen and doing IUI so we can try the months he is away at ov (which is almost every month). I am not sure if we will be eligible as we live in SA and the laws over here say you have to be medically infertile to access fertility treatment. Noone else is allowed where he is working so flying there is not an option

    Congratulations Kelly and Indigo!
    Unfortunately we are having to go down the route of IUI. DP will only be home at ovulation 3 times in a year and even when we have timed it right, it just hasn't happened. We had fertility assessments done and they came back really good. So if this cycle doesnt work for us we will be starting natural IUI next cycle. DP has already signed all the forms and had some sperm frozen so we are all set to go. I just have to have a HSG on monday to make sure my tubes are open. I hope it works for us!

    it sucks doesn't it.
    My hubby's roster changed and he came home a week early which changed us from having 3 chances to try back down to 1 chance , we are very lucky.
    I do hope that the IUi works for you quickly and that you get your BFP soon x

    Thanks Kelly. What roster is your hubby on? Mine is on 26 days on/9 days off on Barrow Island. How are you going with planning appointments and ultrasounds etc? I will really want my partner to be there for them all but know they are unlikely to fall when he is home!

    He is 21 on 6 home. He will be here for our first obstetrician appt at 9 + 2 but misses our dating scan next week and our 12 weeks scan. He will see bub at the ob appt though so that will be good
    I just have to book my appts when I can if he is here then that's great if not I have my mum and sisters which is just as good for me
