    Hi ladies

    Sharlein - glad your appointment went well. Bugger that you have to wait until Jan Hang in there though, treat yourself and relax while you aren't cycling and but Jan will be here in no time at all!!

    JemJems - I still can't believe they didn't let you cycle this time. So unfair! But well done you on losing some weight. That is an awesome effort and you should be stoked with yourself. I think you just need to ring on day 1, they should already have the sheet from your FS and you should be good to go then.

    MrsJag - how is everything going?

    Lynlee - I was told the same thing. And to be honest the only time one of my embies did take was a a frozen natural cycle. So there could be some truth to what they are saying. You never know though hey? Such a hard process and waiting for transfer sucks!! Do you have to wait a month before you can go again?

    Hi to everyone else

    AFM - well I am PUPO with one lovely looking grade A blast on board. And would you believe we had 4 other good 5 day ones left that they have frozen. So we only lost one.....can't believe it!! Dr Fong also thinks I might do better on a frozen transfer but we were able to transfer one this time as well as we had some options. I have been here before though (first cycle, 5 frozen) and still no BFP so whilst excited, still cautious and nervous. Shall just have to wait and see x

    Some scary news for us. Ultrasound was picture perfect and all looked good - nuchal measurement was 1.4mm & low risk with age (1:3800). Unfortunately my bloods were concerning and our overall risk went up to 1:169. I'm a mess, but we aren't doing further testing. We will love this baby no matter what.

    On the bright side, baby was perfect on the ultrasound. Fast asleep, measuring exactly at 12 weeks, then flipped into a headstand and started flailing. Very cute.

    Hi everyone,

    Thank lynlee- I might call this week and see what they say.

    Hi lily - congrats on being PUPO, I hope this is the one for you. - I know it killed me- but the extra month has given me some time to get healthier and get settled into my new job I guess. And now when I do cycle I should get to relax as I have three weeks off over Xmas. So hopefully it works and I can kick back and let the little embie get comfortable.

    Mrsjag- I'm sorry it's not the news you hoped. Stay strong- I am sending big hugs your way. And keeping everything crossed for you. Bubba looks beautiful, so precious. Xxxx

    Hi to all - hope your all having great days. I have a stomach bug so am at home today trying to rest.. Bleh.

    Xoxoxox

    Hello lovely ladies ,

    Glad to see many of you are still around as I was worried that if you all started chatting on FB I’d be left all alone here as I don’t have FB and don’t plan to join anytime soon.

    Lilly – I’m so happy to hear you’re PUPO and also having 5 frosties, such wonderful news , I’m so pleased for you. I hope the next 2 weeks just flies by for you, I’m so excited for you.

    Mrsjag – congratulations on making 12 weeks . I’m so sorry to hear of your scary news, you brought tears to my eyes when you wrote that you’ll love the baby no matter what, you are so amazing and strong . Are you able to find out if there is anything to be concerned about or will you wait until the birth? The ultrasound would have been great though, love the photo, the baby doing a headstand – possible Eels player or cheerleader in the making perhaps?

    Jems – so great to hear you have lost some weight and also have settled in to your new job. Sorry to hear you were unwell today, I hope you feel better tomorrow. Can’t wait for your AF to arrive so you can cycle again

    Sharlein – great to hear your appointment with Dr Fong went well . I will probably cycle in January as well, also taking DHEA and seeing an extra FS so squeezing in another cycle before the end of the year is probably unlikely

    Lynlee – sorry to hear you had a chemical pregnancy , as you said it’s probably a good sign that your body is doing something right. I hope your antagonist cycle is better for you in November. Fingerscrossed this will do the trick

    Andrea – how have you been going? When can you do a FET? Hope you’re well

    Rosewhite – I’m sure you enjoyed your mum visiting on the long weekend last week, how long did she stay for? How did your US go, have you had EPU yet? I hope you’re doing well

    AFM – still nothing to report. Had my FS follow up appointment last week post surgery and as expected everything is normal, which is a good thing I suppose. It just confirms to me that I have immune issues. I can’t wait for them to be confirmed with my extra FS that I’m seeing this Thursday. It’s my first appointment and I’m so stressed out as I’m worried I’ll get lost – I have to travel from Castle Hill to Hurstville, which is apparently just over an hours drive. I’ve allowed myself 3 hours to get there because I’m freaking out . I don’t have a GPS but I have my trusty street directory, plus I printed off directions from Google. Anyway, I’ve heard this Dr is a miracle worker and reading the book “Is your body baby-friendly” has been encouraging as there is still hope for us

    hi everyone,

    aceofbase - when you say extra FS do you mean new FS or an additional one to the one you have?

    lily - congrats on being PUPO. So happy for you xx

    mrsjag - sorry to hear the bloods didnt keep your stats down but i am sure everything will be fine. 1:169 is like 0.6% of a chance. That is very little. That is so sweet what you said about loving the baby no matter what and everyone else is right that little baby is lucky to have you both as parents already xx

    sharlein - what a bummer you have to wait until january. I am so impatient to get my FET started since i never got to have a transfer last cycle. I have even reduced the amount of time on the pill so i can start my new cycle ASAP. Cause my af came on tuesday i was supposed to take the non-active tablets until saturday and then satrt the 21 days of active tabs but i just started taking the active tablets straight away cause i wasnt wasting 4 days taking a tablet that i knew was doing nothing and adding that time to my cycle unnecssarily. And thats 4 days. I cant even imagine having to wait until january.

    hello to everyone else

    afm - well my big decision now is to how many embryos to thaw cause i am thinking i want to ask them to thaw more then 4 which is the most liberal thaw plan. The reason being is that I have found some research that says that women with PCOS that do the antagonist cycle have a lower clevage rate with embryos then normal so statistically if 1 in 4 make it to blast normally and i only thaw 4 i could very well end up with none if my success rate is lower then normal. I am just wondering how much influence i actually have over this decision? After all they are OUR embryos. They do belong to us so i would think we would have plenty of say but i dont want to be a total pain in the *** to the nurses if their policy on only thawing a maximum of 4 is really strict?
    Also, I had a bit of a scare last week. One of my blood tests came back elevated with a hormone called 17-ohp and another doctor (not Dr Smith) called me and told me I had to go have this test done at a pathologist located at a hospital as they suspected I might have late onset congential adrenal hyperplasia (a recessive genetic condition) instead of PCOS. So of course google was my best friend and the more i researched the more worried i became. It didnt look good if I had it it meant that hubby would have to be tested as well and if he was a carrier we would have most likely had to go with PGD so we could only use embryos without the condition. Anyway, then the nurse called me and said Dr Smith would not allow me to proceed with my FET cycle until mine and my husbands test results came back which freaked me out even more. So, I told them hubby wouldnt be getting tested unless my results came back negative and went up last wednesday and had the test. Dr Smith called and told me the results came back all clear and that he couldnt understand why my first blood test result was so elevated as my baseline result last week was very low (normal). All he could put it down to was that i had ovulated 2 eggs that cycle (which would mean higher production of this hormone). I think it could also have been to do with the lab doing the first test as it is quite an unusual thing to test for but where my results were sent last week was a speciality lab that does that kind of testing all the time.
    So to say i was relieved at the result was an understatement.

    Yes, I’m seeing 2 FS’s – my WFC one a my new one who specialises in reproductive immunology. Apparently the new FS isn’t involved in my IVF cycle but he works with it, according to my situation. My WFC FS is interested to hear what he suggests so hopefully we can all work together to get us pregnant. If it doesn’t work I have no other available options and my TTC journey will be over

    So sorry to hear of your scare over your blood test results last week, what an ordeal for you. Thank goodness everything was OK in the end though.

    Thanks loves for the kind words. I'm feeling much calmer today. Whatever will be, will be. Not much I can do, except hopefully keep bub growing strong.

    JemsJems - are you feeling any better yet lovely?

    Aceofbase - good luck with your FS appointment today!! Hope all goes well and you find the place ok Hopefully they can give you some answers. Make sure you let us know how you go.

    Andrea - that must have been scary with the boods. Glad everything came back alright though! Have you decided on your thaw plan? Did you speak to the nurses or your FS anymore about it and what you can do? When do you think your transfer will be?

    How is everyone else going?

    AFM - I'm 3dp5dt and already feeling sad. I feel the same this time as I have for the other three blasts I have had transfered that all eneded in BFNs. No cramping to show implanting, no sore BBs, no feeling at all like anything is different. I have been reading up (silly I know!) and most people always feel cramping etc when the embie implants, or sore BBs or feel sick or feel something. I feel nothing and like I have every other time. Oh well.......guess we still have our four frosties but after having 4 beautiful looking blasts transfered I'm begining to wonder why the little guys just won't stick? Anyhoo sorry for the me post and being a sook.
