Tessagirl - congratulations on your successful defrosting, you must be so relieved
I'm on 450 gonal f now and EPU is expected Wed or Fri. Here I was thinking i was coping really well emotionally with this cycle and then I went to a baby shower! Big mistake! I was sitting at a table with all these girls who were either pregnant or had children and all they were talking about was their kids and pregnancies and then whoosh the water works started. I was holding my 3 month old nephew at the time so practically threw him at my sister and escaped to thee back yard to seek comfort from a cavoodle Perhaps not coping so well after all.
Yippee just got the fab news that my 2 embys are still perfect for day 4 and ready for transfer to my surrogate tomorrow so happy!!

Yep knittingnancy I was totally buggered on gonal f, lotsa nanna naps too
thanks girls, good to know I'm symptomatic! Almost bedtime now lol
Best of luck tomorrow Tessagirl and Makiely... Will be thinking of you both!
i know what you mean Maggieme, I think I'm handling it all very well, but tear up in the most inconvenient of places.... I remember my sis telling she was pregnant with her second, about a month after we found out we needed icsi, ugh... No fun!
Good luck Tessa - will be thinking of you tomorrow! Makiely - hope you and your surrogate have a brilliant day tomorrow.
VMuch - I didn't expect acupuncture to hurt either!!! I do find it relaxing once they are in but it is such a weird sensation - like a shooting / nerve / electric-y feeling that I get when they first go in. Then I get super chilled and usually fall asleep! It wasn't me with the sister but I really 100% believe that traditional Chinese medicine makes a difference with fertility.
AFM - tww not too bad so far. Got a call confirming blood test will be on 13th Feb. I will prob POAS the day before as I am not sure I want to be hanging out for the call to know. If it is BFN I will at least have had a chance to get my head around it before taking "that call". I don't have any here so at least I won't be tempted to go early!!!

Makiely, I feel for you, I had no idea surrogacy costs so much! Hope it works for you!

Thanks for all the good luck messages everyone :-) We haven't told anyone about our cycle this time...have had heaps of our friends and family ask (as we had told half of Australia for our previous cycles!) but we have decided to keep to it to ourselves to hopefully help me to remain a little more "emotionally stable" than usual! It seems to be working too! Anyway so it's nice to be able too share the news with you guys :-)
Makiely hope everything goes well for you and your surrogate tomorrow too. The expenses of ivf are such a pressure, but even more so for you. I really hope you end up with some amazing news, two little bubbas :-)
Maggie I totally hear you with the emotionally craziness :-( It's so hard sometimes when you want it so badly and as much as we are all happy for everyone that is able to have the blessing that we want for ourselves so much, sometimes it can be really hard to keep it together. I've had many similar experiences that you've had at the baby shower but my outbursts have always been at work. I certainly find the emotional side of the ivf process the most difficult part to handle. I just keep telling myself that my body is just waiting to find that perfect little bub and that our turn will come soon.
Take care everyone, baby dust to you all :-)
