    No idea if this will help but someone gave me a giggle by telling me that daily injections are just like something else done to result in babies...a little prick, a bit of a squirt of fluid, and voila.

    Meanwhile I have found I can make myself an IVF ticker for my signature so it can tell me how little time is left until the pointy end of the cycle is over - very happy with how low it is already!
    Haha too true

I'm on leave at the moment so ideally would have been good to get it started now but most likely will start when b k at work and hoping injections don't make me grumpy. Has anyone found the medication has made them angrier ?! Haha I am pretty worries its going to make me a angry bi$@h! Will have to try control myself at work!
    I found it heightened all my emotions a bit but not too bad, well to tell the truth I can't remember and it was 9/10 months ago but it couldn't have been too bad

Whenever I bring this up with my Drs, they tell me not to worry because AF will arrive like clockwork 14 days after ovulation, no matter when you ovulate, but for me that hasn't been true. Our last FET I ovulated day 15 and got AF on day 26, as I ALWAYS do. I don't know if hormone levels will get high enough fast enough to stop AF, even if the embryo does implant. We have had 2 unsuccessful single transfers and the only time we had success was a double transfer....hormones plenty high enough there!
    Sorry for my rambling, it's just frustrating to feel that I may have an issue holding us back, but they only see me as this perfectly healthy specimen because DHs problem is so serious. I've tried taking vitamin B6 but it hasn't lengthened my cycle much so far. Oh well, FET in a couple weeks, only one left, here goes......
    My old FS said it was all DH & his abnormal sperm morphology & mobility. I was told I was fine... After a miscarriage and 2 BFN & with nothing left I changed FS... My cycles range from 23 to 30 days, she ordered a laparoscopy & diagnosed me with mild endo & mild pcos, so it look like we both have a problem! Go with your gut! Have you had a lap? What tests have they done on you?

    Knittingnancy- My Genea nurse said the same thing to me regarding the timing of the egg collection. I had the christening of my god daughter around that week and that's probably why she said it, after I verbalized it with DH in the appointment. I thought it was absurd as well, but I did manage to make it to the christening the next day....albeit feeling like $2 lol!!

    Good luck to you ladies who have started your cycle or are about to start!

We are doing the antagonist cycle ( not 100% of the difference with the other cycles as yet this is all very new). Hubby (who is 33) & I ( I am 25) have been trying for two years now so I am finally feeling positive that this might actually become a reality. I have a history of PCOS however everything seems to be working just as it should now, after having a laproscopy and multiple scans there is no reason why I can't fall pregnant. Hubby got tested and he has a high sperm count but has poor morphology. He had been tested twice in the past two years but the normal GP tests came back fine, we then got the detailed analysyis through the clinic which came up with poor results. Really can't wait to start this, it feels like it has been a really long road to get here. It's hard not to think about it 24/7 though. We had our counselling session yesterday, as much as they say this can take 6-12 months it's hard not to have so much hope on the first cycle..... Just wanted to share and looking for some extra support
    Welcome!
    This is the place to be for support & questions! Or even rants!!
    I have mild endo & mild pcos but I'm regular every month so I should be able to get pregnant! I'm 29 so is DH & he has abnormal sperm morphology & mobility issues... Now not to get your hopes up, as this can be a long ride with many up's & downs but I became pregnant on our first cycle / transfer after doing icsi antagonist also but sadly miscarried at 6 weeks & the last two embryos we had resulted in a BFN... That was hard to cope with. I'm positive about a good result on my second cycle but I must realise I man not become pregnant in the first cycle like I was so lucky to last time... You never know though, I could be lucky again... You need to stay positive but realistic x

    Marttc- I'm sorry about your mc. We work up so much courage to go through ivf, so to be successful and have it end that way must have been so tough. And you're right about never knowing what a cycle may bring. I had tried to prepare myself for a negative on my first cycle, but not even making it to transfer was such a blow. I had developed ohss and my FS recommended not to continue.

    I have endo and DH has low morph, so we shall see what happens in our next cycle. I got pretty down about it just before Xmas because that was when I was feeling pretty sick, but now I'm feeling a bit more positive, and the post Xmas hobbies have kicked in, providing a welcome distraction!

    Yeah it was tuff, I couldn't believe we were finally there & also to be due 5 days apart from my best friend was just perfect in every way! My due date of Nov 30 was hard, also watching friends have their babies around my date really hit home, especially when I knew I wouldn't just fall pregnant that easily... By the time we start IVF again, it will be about a year since our BFP - sucks!!

    You sound similar to me & my DH with what we have! Why does it have to be so hard sometimes? I've had so many Christmas / new year announcements & it hurts!

    Marttc- I know, Xmas was ultra weird this year. I just couldn't get into it at all, and my Facebook feed was choc full of all my friends who have had bubs this year and their new family photos. So I found myself avoiding it and tweeting more, have also started an ivf blog, which is my outlet at the moment.

    Hopefully this time next year, this process will be a distant memory for everyone here. Until then, let the ranting and raving begin 😜

    I know exactly what you mean about life being on hold - I've felt like that since our MFI diagnosis a year ago! Our egg collection last cycle was rescheduled once because I took longer than expected to recover from lap/hys surgery, and again to work around a work commitment that was originally nowhere near the IVF cycle. And this time it's been scheduled to match DH's surgeon. I originally thought hah, yeah, like I'd want to reschedule it...but it's such a relief every time it has been!

    Hi everyone!

    It is so wonderful to find others to share this difficult journey with. Well we will give iui one more shot in January and if it fails we will be doing Ivf in February 2013. We have been ttc for 18 months now so the thought of Ivf is exciting but daunting. My greatest fear is going under a general for egg pick up. Does everyone do this or can they just do it under light sedation? For those of you that have done Ivf before, how did you find the egg retrieval?

    thanks so much for any guidance you might be able to offer. I really appreciate it.

    Katelyn xx
