    Workingmumma - Good luck for Friday!

    K&P - 14 is great! Yay!! No wonder you're sore! Hope you're feeling better today. I didn't have any bleeding at all after EPU, so I can't help too much there - sorry. Hope it settles for you soon.

    dancingbutterfly - Hope you're feeling better soon too.

    kdsd - Keeping everything crossed you get good fertilisation rates for those eggs.

    Sel - How are you going on the exercise front? I've been doing lots of thinking about it too I've gone from being really into sports/ PT training, to dropping all of it when FS told me to cut down, and now doing nothing except the odd walk. Erghh. But now I'm ready to get going again!

    lackers - My clinic is the same! BT 14 days after 5dt. So annoying. Not sure what you mean about the forms though? I don't have any forms for tests - I just show up at some point on that day and they do them. I guess all clinics are different.

    MrsJ - Yay for 5 weeks! I know time is going to drag until the scan, but we're here to help you waste some!

    Peonies - Very frustrating about the timing. Hope you can get some answers today, and either way hope you have a great break.

    1xbabyplease - Hope you're doing okay. K'iesha can be a cow, in more ways than one! Lots of looking after yourself needed (wine? chocolate?)

    Luckyme1 - I wish I could say something helpful, but this whole process really does suck. The treadmill sounds like a positive move though - I should probably reinvestigate mine at some stage!!

    Wunsi - A modified roll call sounds like a good plan! I have no idea either though...

    Clem - The snow sounds good! Where did you go?

    AFM - Started the Progynova today, and have a scan booked in for Wednesday next week (29th). Will do FET after that scan, depending on where the lining is up to.

    Hoping for a Father's Day baby!

    Had a big meltdown last night. Told DH that maybe the fact I was never clucky/ maternal and don't get pregnant easily means that I'm not meant to be a mum, and that I suck at it. My body can't do anything naturally. Getting pregnant.... then DD ended up being a CS, and then I failed at BF. I know it's not logical, as when I mentioned that to the IVF psych she pointed out that I had described my DD as 'awesome', and she couldn't be that awesome if I was that rubbish. She also said 'so what' to all the other things, and said if I want my next baby to be as awesome then I should really do all the same things again! I was just feeling down.

    DH was lovely, and made me feel better. He did something very sweet, which was to point out that we had known each other nearly 10yrs, and I have about 5000 photos of him on the computer. DD is 2, and I already have 7500 photos of her that I've labelled. He said I couldn't be that rubbish and unnatural about it all if I loved her enough to do that.

    Not explaining it very well, but he made me feel better anyway. And then I had some wine, which made me feel even better.

    GirlX - I understand completely. I've been having some of the same thoughts. I was never very maternal, wasn't sure if I even wanted kids. It wasn't until later in life that I did decide I wanted them - really not until I had met the right person, my DH. And as it turns out he is infertile. Maybe that is the universe's way of saying I'm not meant to have them. But I want them now, with DH - and I think he wanted them even more than me. He would be such a great dad. It's all just depressing, but maybe trying to force it too much is going against what's meant to happen. Crazy talk??

    Hi girls -

    Clem - i hope you had a great snow trip <3

    Girlx - don't worry, i bet you are an amazing mamma <3

    Peonies - i've had the same thoughts - if i can't even grow good eggs, does this mean that it's the universe's way of saying I shouldn't have babies?

    AFM - fert rates are in ladies:

    Of the 14 eggs, 6 were mature, and all 6 have fertilised. I'm really happy as last time, I got 9 eggs, 5 were mature and 3 fertilised - none were particularly good and none were frozen. I'm hoping that the DHEA, Luveris shot and CoQ10 had something to do with this. K'iesha, please please PLEASE work your bogan magic and keep my embies strong!

    Hey girls, thanks for all the advice on Puregon, im currently day 8 of jabbing and im over it! no-one told me about the sickly feeling, the cramping and all the other wonderful side effects! I feel crap! My blood test only showed a level of 279 which they tell me is low and that I have to keep jabbing for another 6 days.... that cant be a good sign? Does anyone know how low that level is? How bad is it? So another blood test friday and with any luck an ultrasound monday and then off to EPU a couple of days later. Should I be nervous??? im kinda freaking out! oh and a new roll call would be a great idea/update.... I think I am "still waiting for AF" lol

    Clem, I have been at the snow too.... where did you go?

    K&P - Yayyyyyy!!! That's great news about the results! When is ET?

    Peonies - Not crazy talk, but probably not accurate talk either (and I apply that to myself too)! I feel exactly like that in the low moments, but in the 'rational' moments I don't believe there is any cosmic plan/ destiny and that all kinds of terrible people have kids - and I like to think I'm not too terrible! I think this all just messes with our heads, and makes us doubt ourselves. It's a sucky sucky thing, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

    Girl X - the ET, if all goes to plan and our embies are ok, will be on Saturday.

    I think we IVF girls all go through the inevitable "I shouldn't be a mum" thought, I've even heard of women who think that us not being able to conceive is a sign that we're not supposed to have babies (WORST THING TO SAY TO SOMEONE), however there are so so so many women out there popping out babies who have no business bringing them into the world. As far as i'm concerned, it's women like us who absolutely deserve to and should be having the babies as we're the ones going through so much to have them, we have so much love to give these little ones

    Peonies - from reading your posts on here, I know that a) you should be a mum and b) you'll be a loving, beautiful mamma

    Will keep everything crossed for Sat for you!

    And you're right. I know that I'm a good mum to DD. I adore her, I treat her well, I never speak badly to her/ shout at her, and I do everything I can to give her a good life.

    It's just in those black moments when the TTC/ IVF gets me down, and I start to feel that I'm no good because I couldn't do all of these 'natural' things. But natural is not always best and, I think, is largely irrelevant. There are plenty of crappy natural things out there too, so I don't know why (and others) let it get to us sometimes.

    A friend said to me that she would never do IVF as it wasn't 'natural'. Well, neither is taking the contraceptive pill, neither is my hair colour, neither was Clomid (without which I wouldn't be alive - as my mother took it to conceive me, and DD wouldn't be alive either), neither is medication that we take when we're sick.

    You are absolutely right that we will all be great mums, because we want it so much and we have already given so much to make it happen.

    KandP - That is fantastic news , will be willing all 6 of your embies to be strong for you. I too had bleeding after EPU, not massive but it was all over the hospital sheets and I spotted for a couple of days after.

    Clem - welcome back from the snow, are you somewhere warmer now?

    Kdsd - keeping everything crossed for you as well

    Lackers - we get forms as well and have our bloods done at a pathology centre, they give us our forms at transfer (from memory)

    Mrs J - it's great you're 5 weeks now, I think it feels longer getting pregnant through iVF because the journey is soooo long and you find out so early. Bubs will be here before you know it.

    Peonies - For our FET I have been on HRT. I started on progynova on day 1 and increased it every 4 days, yesterday I had my scan and, as my lining is ready, I started crinone and FET is booked for friday. Could you do an HRT cycle while you're away? That way you would only need to take Progynova with you and they can scan you when you get home and then prepare for FET?

    1xbabyplease - sending hugs your way

    Luckyme1 - sending hugs your way too . Hope you enjoy your treadmill. I've started back at the gym and we've been doing lots of walking, we live on the side of a mountain so we've been taking the kids and dog up and enjoying a coffee at the top.

    Wunsi - I went straight from freeze all to starting HRT FET cycle 1 week after EPU. Hopefully they'll let you go straight into FET, it's a bit gentler on the body than a fresh cycle but I am more moody on these hormones than I was with injections.

    Sariele - I apologise for my delay in replying, I will try and send some info through today.

    Tigger - wanted to check in on you and see how you are, you've been in my thoughts

    LKeith - I notice your signature says ?FET this month, are there any updates, I will keep my fingers crossed for you

    Sel - well done on starting up the exercise again, I think it's good for the mind as well as the body (I hate exercise but I'm making myself do it). I'm an Adelaide born girl - I used to love walking and horse-riding on the beach regularly, I really miss the beach and make sure I spend lots of time walking it whenever I go back to Adelaide.

    Dancing butterfly - I hope you feel better soon, flu's are awful!

    Nicb - welcome, I am also an RN, thankfully I don't have to do as much physical work as I am not in the hospital setting anymore

    GirlX - don't doubt yourself, mothering is not about how babies are conceived, born or fed. You sound like you are very devoted to your daughter and who could ask for more. I had 4 c-sections and my first baby refused to BF and started losing weight, I had to go back to hospital for another week to sort out feeding and he left bottle-fed and very happy. I had planned a natural birth in a birthing centre and was told 2 weeks before my due date that my pelvic outlet was too small to deliver. I was devastated and felt like I'd failed until a beautiful midwife shared her story with me and made me realise it's not about how they come into the world that matters.

    I really hope I haven't missed anyone and I'm sorry if I have.

    AFM - I'm feeling relatively good at the moment. I'm very nervous about Friday but everyone at the clinic is very relaxed about it so I will try and be as well. According to my clinic and paperwork I will have my blood test on 3/9 which is 2 weeks from yesterday, not far away now.......
