    Default October/ November cycle buddies

    Hi Ladies

    Anyone out there cycling in October/ November?

    We are in limbo land waiting for AF to arrive in about 3 weeks then onto the pill for 3 weeks so thinking EPU will be 2nd or 3rd week in November.

    Have decided not to tell anyone this time round as it was so hard dealing with the constant 'are you pregnant' questions and looks so BH is going to be my saviour.

    Hopefully we can keep eachother company and help support eachother through what I believe is one of the hardest things in life to go through.

    Hi, I am starting my cycle now, just waiting for day 17 to rock around to start my provera tablets. This is my 1st reply to a thread & I apologise as I dont know all the abbreviations.

    We have a 2.5 year old son, who was conceived via IUI 1st attempt.

    We are now trying for number 2, we have had 2 failed attempts at IUI & 1 of IVF with only 1 viable embryo out of 15 & this will be attempt number 2 & possibly the last due to money issues so there is alot riding on this cycle.

    Dyso- fingers crossed for you that this time's a charm.

    I have just gotten home from my specialist and we are booked in for a laparoscopy and hystroscopy on 2 November, and then onto chlomide and meta...something. So hopefully first iui will be in late nov, assuming all the cycles work.

    Welcome ladies and good luck. This will be our second full cycle as only one viable egg first round. Sometimes it feels like I keep getting left at the starting line.

    Ok, I need to rant, and I'm sorry, but you guys are the one who are gonna hear allllllllll about it.

    So I have been TTC for 4 years, seeking ART for over 3 1/2. This has been the longest, most painful, most exhausting, most awful process I could have lived through. It has been hard on my lifestyle, my marriage and my mental health.

    So I told my sister yesterday that we were looking to start ivf properly at the end of the year, and her response was great, very excited, and then she comes out with "and I bet you're glad. now that you've had to wait'. I just looked at her and said, 'no I wanted my baby 4 years ago. If I could go back and have a baby 4 years ago, that's what I'd be doing'. And she's like, 'oh but you've grown as a person and gotten to do things with your career that you couldn't have done if you'd had a baby straightaway.'

    I fully felt like slapping her!

    Yes I have grown in patience and compassion. Yes I have gotten a new job and bought a new house. Yes I have worked through all the issues and have a wonderful marriage (not that there isn't still fears for the future with this journey we're on). but if I hadn't had to wait I wouldn't need any of those things! And frankly I'd give them all up tomorrow if it meant I could have my baby now! Personal growth is awesome, but it comes through the price of pain, and I have been pretty miserable of almost 4 years. I'm glad I've grown but I'd rather have just been happy.

    I feel like everything I've done for the past four years has just been marking time. I've been threading water. And the thought that she's happy that I had to wait, upsets me so much, I'm in tears again just thinking about it. It's all part of the 'you're still young' bias. I wanted kids 10 years ago, but knew I needed to grown up a bit. I was READY five years ago. So the fact that I've had to wait is not a blessing. There is no silver lining on it. There is no way to spin this o a positive. And I kind of hate her for trying.

    Elestrial - Rant away honey, that's what we are here for <3

    Unfortunately those who haven't experienced infertility can never ever understand!

    We were TTC for 5 years before we had our son & in that time frame we also got our lives together brought a house etc but I too would have given it all up for a baby of my own.

    In the 2 years since we have been TTC I've had the same friend fall pregnant twice & the whole 12 years I've known her she was never having children & now she is having fricken 2, I cried my eyes out when I found out but I never told her it broke my heart, just that I was happy for them, another friend of mine is going through something similar to me copped my rant.

    Sometimes you just have to get it all off your chest & if we can help you feel better then go for it

    Hi Ladies,

    I've just come fresh off a August/September thread with a very recent BFN, they were a really lovely bunch of ladies but I need to focus on my next cycle now. I found the support of this forum invaluable in a world where only people who have gone through infertility and ivf (etc) really understand how these things effect our lives.

    I've only got one day 3 on ice, so if this thaws ok then its a FET in October, otherwise an ICSI in November.

    Dyso80 - I am also struggling with a few close friends/family who are now pg with their second in the time I have been TTC. The first one hurts bad enough but the second one is just horrible, particularly when they tell you with glee how "my DH only has to look at me and I fall pregnant". Ugh. Spare me.

    Whilst I have days where I feel sorry for myself for having to work so hard at TTC, a friend of mine has similar issues to me and simply can't afford ivf. She has one child through clomid but it didn't work this time and she is now accepting that she will not have another. I consider myself lucky to have the opportunity to use ivf, as awful and frustrating as it is at times.

    Hi Ladies is it ok if I join. I have just come from the August September Thread with a BFN. I also have to face that my FS is changing clinics. I have decided to stay with my clinic with this cycle as I have already booked my Day 21 appointment.

    Good to see you again Samarasmum, wish it was under better circumstances. Hopefully this is our BFP cycle.
