    Hi ladies, sorry I've been neglecting the forum lately. My laptop packed it in (but DH bought me a new one a couple of days ago, woot!), plus I'm in the middle of a potential health crisis to the point where I can't even think about babies and IVF right now, as there is a possibility that whatever's wrong with me could be serious. I don't want to go into details as it's TMI, but what has been awful is that because of this stupid time of year I can't even book in for the testing I need done because everywhere is closed or on skeleton staff until after New Year, it's infuriating! I've had two GP appts since the 17th and I want to book another to see if the first GP can do anything more for me while I wait for specialist testing. But even the stupid GP practice have been turning their phones off early or something; I tried calling them yesterday and today and both times got the "we're closed" recorded message. Argh!!

    I don't mean to sound so dramatic when I don't even know what is wrong with me yet, but already I've had a massive change in perspective; right now I care so little about getting pregnant, and so much more about both DH and I being healthy and living a decently long life together.

    It is heartbreaking though that I probably won't be able to start my next IVF cycle in about three weeks like I was supposed to. It looks like instead I'll be undergoing testing to find out what is wrong with me, and all I can do is hope with all my heart that it's nothing serious, easily fixed, and I can start IVF again in Feb... *fingers tightly crossed* So I'll only be lurking in here for now, as I may be leaving the group or even the IVF threads indefinitely, depending on what turns out to be the problem with me. Best of luck to all, I'll update when I know more. xx

    Oh no Sariele, you don't need something new to worry about. I'll have my fingers crossed for you that all is well and that you'll be able to do another IVF soon. Look after yourself!

    Hang in there Sariele! Hope good news comes your way really soon.
    Great to hear some ladies have already started, keep those stories coming. I think it makes waiting to start your own cycle easier when you are part of a network that has already got something happening

    So true, I hope everyone is doing good in anticipation of their cycle. Waiting to start can be maddening because it feels like such a waste of time. I've got one whole cycle to go before my attempt at FET, so I'll be cheering you ladies on in the meantime!

    Oh Sariele, That must be really frustrating with all the drs at this time of the year. Really hoping you get to stick around these threads because it turns out its not as serious as you first thought...

    Beatrix, waiting to start is so maddening, you are right. I feel like i am going a little insane now. ahaha. I was doing so well up until about 2 days ago and now i just want to start! I asked husband last night whether he thought 7 days (give or take a few) was a long time to wait, to which he replied, "no, not at all". Haha.. we are so different at times! I CANNOT stop thinking about it.. Each day we get through I think "yippee, one day closer". But he is just so relaxed about it all, even though he's really looking forward to it as well.

    Totally premature, but we made some fun plans for how we will celebrate when we finally get pregnant. i can't wait for that moment. These kind of things help me to still have hope- kind of like shopping for baby clothes. There have been times during this journey when I could not stand walking into the baby clothes section at shops. But now I find it really therapeutic. Like, in all my negative feelings about getting pregnant, feeling totally hopeless at times, it's kind of my way of staying hopeful. Anyone else found this or something similar??

    Beanie, I know what you mean about those little plans for when we are pregnant. I have long hair, and for ages, I've been telling myself that I'd get a fab new short style when I finished my first trimester haha! I haven't told anyone in case they think I'm out of my tree 😜 I choose to think about these things because they give me hope and something to look forward to.

    As for husbands, mine is much the same. I honestly feel that after going through my cycle, a bigger physical burden is placed on us gals, so it's only natural that we think about all the permutations and combinations endlessly. Aside to this, DH is also dealing with his dad being terminal in hospital, so I've tried to keep the whole ivf thing a bit lighthearted this cycle, but it was difficult when they told us our embies (all but 1) stopped growing after day 3. But that was 2 weeks ago and I've come through it ok and in one piece. This time of year is so surreal to be on ivf isn't it?

    Sariele, I know I've replied on our other thread but I also wanted to say to stick around. There will always be support for you here. I hope you're doing ok today.

    Sariele, I hope your health scare is nothing more than that -- a scare -- and that it only serves to remind you of the good things you do have -- like health and a supportive hubby. Seems we tend to forget these all-important things sometimes! Fingers crossed for you.

    Beanie, that's a good way of thinking about things, much better than my current approach which is to march quickly through the baby aisle with my eyes down!
