    All is well with the world apparently only need to pay the $3000-$4000 if after we get the drugs on Tuesday we change our minds and decide not to go forward with the whole process. I felt like saying 'are you freaking kidding me we wouldnt go through this just to cancel at the crucial part'.
    So Tuesday is drug pick up day and the real fun begins. The week we are due for our first EPU is also the week my family is having a big get together. My nan had 9 children & when she died in 2006 she had 100 direct decendants (2 including my mum & an inlaw have since passed away) so needless to say i have a very big family & nearly all are coming & nearly will know what is happening since telling someone something in confidence doesnt really happen, the art of secret keeping died with my nan!
    B is getting really clucky & cute she's on a mission 'to get the house in pristine condition before this baby comes' as she puts it. I think she's forgotten they take a while to cook & we have a bit of time especially since we have to get it in there first!
    I'm doing ok in the weight loss department dropped 3.5kgs so hopefully that'll keep the doc happy the plan is another 5kg in the next month.
    Everyone keeps asking if i'm scared about starting the drugs I'm actually a bit keen as it will be that bit more real. I'm realistic that it's not an easy process & we could be going through this for quite a while but at the same time this feels like the offical start, the last few months have been like pre season training.
    & to everyone else out there I wich you all

    Hi Sareeb
    Man - don't be even the slightest bit worried about the drugs - it is EASY!
    Seriously, the greatest threat to fertility and pregnancy is stress hormones - chillax a bit and try and enjoy the ride - it's exciting/nerve racking enough without extra stress (from a 2nd timer).

    Me: 2010 - OHSS 30 eggs, 1 BFP! DD 2 years old
    2013 - 16 eggs, 1 BFP! (9w 4 d), 2 frozen

    good luck with everything!

    I've been on Synarel for 10 days had a few headaches but nothing too major as far as side affects go. Had a blood test this morning and all going well I should start the Gonal F150 on Wednesday. I've been taking Elevit every morning & eating quite well. Everything is moving along and I keep marking the days off the calendar we can't believe we are 2 weeks(depending on if all the drugs & my body have done what they are supposed to do) from our first go. I think i'm doing alright i'm not normally the kind of person who takes their medication properly I suppose this is a little different.
    I know a lot of couples get stressed and have noggles during this time but B & I are just getting stronger & are so happy at the moment. I just had 3 days away with family & even though I had a job a few years ago where i would be away for a week at a time, I missed her so much & couldnt wait to get home

    I can't believe how fast your time has gone since your first post!
    This is such an exciting time, and really nice that you and your partner are not getting too stressed by the sounds of it.

    I really wish you all the luck in the world with the next step, I hope everything goes just perfectly for you.
    I am now 11w 6 days...on strict bed rest for threatened miss ...looking good though for a successful BFP - so, as I am bored at home, I keep up with your blogs and others as I am going a bit insane .
    Sending you some serious eggy vibes for good quality/numbers!

    Started the Gonal F tonight had a bit of fun with B as she was directing me on how to do it. I was quite proud of her as she didn't think she would even be able to watch. We did the "on the count of 3" thing about 4 times before I finally got the courage to jab it in. Now that I've done it i'm fine it's not to bad & I know i'll be fine to do it without the false starts for the rest of the time.
    We did however have another scare yesterday as M hadn't had his follow up blood tests & our nurse called to say if he didn't get them done this week we may have to postpone. Que mini meltdown, several unanswered phone calls and messages to M who was at work. All sorted M had his tests this afternoon and sent me a photo of the cotton ball and tape on his arm where they took the blood from as proof. He's a funny bugger.
    We had our 6month old god daughter E for a last minute sleep over last night. B was better this time and only checked her 3 times during the night. It was funny with nappy changing time as she has just started crawling & is such a little wriggler. I left B & E in bed having snuggles & watching TV this morning when I went to work it was so cute can't wait for the time when we get to do it with our own bub!

    OMG we are so close I had my blood test today I have an ultrasound @ 9am tomorrow. We are ready to go next week. I'm becoming a pro at giving myself the injections now & to tell you the truth I don't even feel them! I've discovered it's much better if you lie down. So far I've had no side effects which is great.
    Ive also been going crazy on the xtrainer, up to 35 minutes a day at the moment & eating very healthy so hopefully the results will show on the scales, I'm definitely feeling it in my clothes & energy levels.

    Cycle cancelled I had 7 on each side however only 1 was 16mm so doc & nurse decided to up the dose & try another round. I have an appointment with doc on Monday to discuss more! We're a bit gutted but we've been realistic the whole time & knew this was a possibility!

    Oh Sareeb...you must be so disappointed .
    i am sure u have had it all explained to you...but from someone who has been flogged with high doses and getting bad OHSS, it is better to be a bit cautious withdosage ..it was an awful experience and even though 20 eggs collected...only two embryos...both transferred and one BFP.
    they will have a better idea of the correct dosage for next round.
    chin up...and try and stay smiling on your journey....
    meanwhile....I am still on bed rest...but have made it to 13 w, so only another three weeks of this torture and hopefully I can resume my life....ahh the joys of kids.....
    wishing you well for the next round..

    This post may contain TMI you have been warned . It's nearly time to start again I've been on the pill for the past few weeks & in the past few days I've had a period has anyone had this it's not just spotting. See told you TMI! It's funny I suppose a lot those that have already been through it understand but this time it's kind of like going to work or doing the shopping or some other mundane task. Our next apt with fert nurse is Tuesday & I said to B don't worry about coming with I just have to get the drugs be in & out in 5 mins. We have the date for the next clinic week as our specialist only visits bi monthly & this just so happens to be the weekend after we go to a friends gig on the Saturday night, a football game Sunday arvo and a Pink concert we have VIP tickets for on the Sunday night! Yep pretty hectic LOL if the trigger shot is due at the concert. I can see it now "Excuse me Pink just gotta shoot up keep on singing" One of my aunties asked how long we would go for as i'm turning 36 in November my thinking is if we don't have any luck by March then that'll be it. She thinks we should keep going as my cousin had her first at 38 & second at 41 which is more than fine for her & anyone else who wants to & can have babies at those or even more advanced ages, but I think that I need a cut off time.
