    So great to see some of the BFP showing up. congratulations

    There are so many of us in all the different stages, it really shows the ups and downs.

    DH has lost his job and cant work for at least 6 months. I know we are going to struggle and we have talked today about selling our house. The only thing that I can think about is the fact that I cant justiyfy paying out for IVF when things are so tight but I want to so much. I feel so scared, if it didnt work last time we have even less chance now (5 years later) and my FHS is low.
    I know I am blessed to have 2 beautiful children and I know I am being selfish to want more.
    I suppose I need to act my age and put my 2 kids first, i just had to get it off my chest..
    I hope I didnt upset some of you yet to have children, please dont think i dont know how blessed I am already.

    Default Feb/Mar IVF cycle buddies: Lucky 2013!

    Hi everyone

    Nicerin and stc76 - good luck today!! Let me know how many they get and how you are feeling.

    Hopebeilvefaith - how are yours going? Any news over night? What were your updates?

    Just called the lab and out of 9 mature 5 fertilized and 2 look like they may. I need to call them tommoz to find out and n then will tell me the quality and grade of each one. I'm pretty happy with that.

    Hopefaithbelieve.... those cell sizes of your embies sound fine to me. It seems that anything over 4 cells has a good chance of keep dividing.

    AFM.... just had a call from the lab to say that our one precious little embryo is looking "beautiful" and has divided into 4 cells, which is great news for day 2. We're very, very happy with that. We will be having the transfer tomorrow, so another early start for us :-))

    The other two eggs haven't done anything, so the technician thinks that's it. They will still keep them until tomorrow, but she says they will start to degenerate now that it's been two days since EPU.

    So all hope and excitement for our one little precious one :-))

    What are your progesterone levels like when you have your first BFP BT ladies, and what is the ideal level?

    I had my day 9 scan today, there were at least 18 good sized follicles and a few smaller ones, so EPU is scheduled for next Wed with a transfer for Saturday! Really pleased with that result.

    I'm in a bit of a pickle with hopsital forms. Next of kin is DP (and she will be with me the whole time) but I put my mum down as my second next of kin. She doesn't know we're doing IVF, I'd hate for her to find out by the hospital calling her. I figure the chances are very slim especially as DP will be there already, but should I put MIL (who knows) down as my second next of kin, just in case?

    Rainbow Road.... yes, definitely you need to put MIL down (who knows). There's always a possibility that they might ring and your Mum doesn't want to find out from a hospital, rather than you, as to what is happening.

    It's such a tricky situation, as to telling or not telling people, and at what stage to tell. My DH told a few people at his work, as he couldn't come up with any good reasons on why he needed so much time off work. That's fine for him, but I haven't told anyone at my work (I'm better at coming up with excuses!!), so I'm just hoping that no-one from my work ever crosses paths with someone at his work!!

    It's really hard. I chose not to tell my parents because my mum has been very vocal about not wanting to be a grandmother for a while, and I think she'd just stress me out by either wanting to know everything, or trying to talk me out of it.

    MIL and FIL are nothing but supportive, but aren't interfering at all, so are the perfect people to know.

    I've not told very many real life friends, and have done a pretty good job at keeping it quiet (and am lucky the meds have not affected me too much). It's a really tough thing to decide - to tell or not to tell!

    Hi Guys, I just found this thread! Hubby and I are all new to this. We've been trying naturally for around five years, and have finally decided to try ivf. We have started seeing Dr Nicole Hope @ Monash IVF, and have been advised to do IVF isci. We just sent off paperwork and hoping to start in April. Any advice for a newbie?
