Very sorry to hear your news Kittybee, I hope your luck is about to change. This journey really sucks at times...I had to take a breather after my 1st IVF cycle, focus on something other than pregnancy & babies. I guess there is a chance (although I don't want to give into it) that I may never be pregnant, or it may take another few years (I hope not) so I feel that its important to try & be a whole person & not lose sight of everything else. I spend WAY to much time googling & obsessing & have noticed that I'm not 'there' for my friends mentally, physically I'm present but I was becoming so absorbed in my own desire for a baby that I was never really listening to anyone else. I was becoming withdrawn & depressed, arguing all the time with my hubby, it's not healthy. I may have only done 1 cycle, but it's been over 2years of trying naturally, the dr's would do well to acknowledge that!! So that's why I haven't been around much, and I apologise to all the newcomers & returnees to this thread, for I have been gone a couple of weeks & I can't keep up with all that's been going on. I have moved house, been sick, had wonderful nights out...had a life that doesn't revolve around desperately trying to be pregnant, but it's time to get back on the wagon, start cycling again at the end of the month! Good luck to all that are cycling & expecting.x
Well I had pick up this morning and got 6 eggs. I'm happy with that although there were more but my right ovary was in a crap position and they had to go a painful way to get it so Karen oh got a couple out of it. Disappointing that we didn't get them all but I'm happy with the 6 :-) again I felt everything even with endone but feeling better now
I've been thinking about you Papillion! It's all consuming - even for me and already have children. I have found that this journey has taught me to be in the moment as much as I can, especially when it comes to the children I already have. Whilst I try so hard to focus on the now there are times where it's just so difficult, like today - I've spent half the day on Google. It's ridiculous!!. Yay for you cycling again! I'm looking really forward to seeing your journey this time around. Second time is definitely different...even a bit harder in some aspects but easier in some other. I'm so sure you'll do great. I have everything crossed for you! Did you have your Doctors appoint? How did it go??? I'm ok, but as you know the TWW is a killer! I only ended up with 2 eggs but we made it to EPU with a pretty good little 5 cell so I'm hoping it keeps on growing. The other embie wasn't suitable for freezing - too slow. Only a 5 cell on day 3 with fragmentation.
Yay Bethy - 6 eggs is a fantastic number of eggs! I hope you're able to get some frosties
Mrs Simmo, I hope little Maddie is treating you well and you're enjoying mothering.

Did anyone else find EPU really painful??
I didn't find it painful at all but I only had 3 follies (2 eggs) and only from one ovary. The other ovary didn't respond well.
Hi everyone, sorry i have been absent the past few weeks, i have been updating on the fertility centre facebook group as it is a closed private group and easier to update on
I am currently 21 weeks and chugging along nicely.
Had my morphology scan last week at 20 weeks, bub is doing well, heart and all in perfect condition so that was a big relief. Ill add a pic for you all as i also found out the gender last week hehe
So glad you girls are doing well, good luck to those with upcoming epu and fingers crossed for you in the tww.
Went to the hospital monday as i had some spotting and of course thought something was wrong but after being checked out all is ok, bleeding was not coming from inside my cervix or uterus, just a small cyst i had on the outside of cervix which can be very normal. I am however getting lots of braxen hick already. midwife said thats fine too, hopefully it means bub wont come too early! still 19 weeks to go.
Been thinking of you all. Best of luck girls.ss.jpg.jpg
Congrats Sarah! That's wonderful news. Little girls are awesome.
I'm not on the facebook group so don't get to see updates on there. Perhaps I'll join???
