    OMG Pap! Huge congrats! How exciting So happy for you. Whats the plan now lol

    MrsMac123 - I think they are pretty strict with the BMI - as in they wont take you at all if you are over. There is a woman on the facebook page who had to go away and lose 21kgs before being allowed to cycle. Might be worth a check to see how hard you need to push it before your appt. They definitely weigh everyone at that first appt too. My BMI was 29 and they even kind of had a chat to me about it and said to be careful. I am very active and play netball twice a week but had let a bit creep on. I promptly lost 8kgs before my next appt (4 weeks later) and they were shocked! lol

    Great! Tic toc... feel like I have already left it too late I will be childless forever...yeh its for my own good and the baby's ...for me to have none at all it seems...my mother had her last 2 kids at age 39 and 41 and weighed over 100kg had not one issue. Not even swollen ankles.

    Well feeling emotional, helpless and irritable, not to mention slept 2 hours only last night with the wierdest stomach I have ever had, gurgling and bloating, for like5 days now, at 7dpo so I can only hope..my luck I now have something like IBS. Money, age, weight, distance. :banghead

    Yes I am losing weight but yeh, I reckon I will be nearly 42...

    My impression was 43, some clinics go longer if donor eggs... but I dont know havent started yet, just concerned at the time it can take esp if complications like something else wrong. Never mind I am known for thinking the worst about everything..dont get as disappointed that way if you half expect it. Just people in the know keep saying how old I am. Meanwhile I just sit here dieting and twiddling my thumbs....hoping to fluke a natural reading and reading till..what another lady said....my eyes bleed

    Mistakenly and prob cause of my mother having kids into her 40s I did not realise the reality of aging eggs + issues on top

    mrsmac123, have you underwent IF investigations? Is there a medical reason for why you haven't/ can't conceive? My understanding was that tfc will treat anyone, provided they don't have 'complex' infertility issues, ie, conditions requiring closer monitoring and complex medication regimens. They don't prescribe anything other than the stimulant, antagonist, trigger + progesterone support. After your first nurse apt you have to wait around 1 month or so for drs consult, then at least 3 weeks on the OCP (if clinic is busy...the wait is longer). If your weight is going to be a problem, and I don't know wether it will be or not...attend the appointments, request a cycle from - say January, and focus on losing some weight between now and then?? Working towards a deadline usually works.

    i don't know. I really don't know what happens now. They gave me an apt for next week (bloods) and one for 7 weeks (scan). Beyond that I don't know?? I have to make a gp apt, but don't really need to do that right away do I?? Want to be sure I remain pregnant...maybe wait til after the scan. I keep getting little twinges, & cramp...hope to goodness it's implanted in the right place. My ovaries hurt like towards the end of an ivf cycle. I'm paranoid it may be ectopic. There's just no end to the worry!!lol

    Thanks for replying to my negativity. I have not had anything done in the last 6 years, had a konniption when I turned 40 realised the loneliness in me wont go away even after 7 psyche appointments, so asked my hubby if we could try ivf about 3w ago only..41 in early Dec. He had moved on...I cannot. Have had 2 ectopics, one in each tube, one tube removed from last ectopic 1999. Assume the remaining tube is not great. MC 6 years ago and was too sad to continue as that was also my second MC, actually I would say it was chemical, didnt know that term until recently. Getting pregnant has not been a problem. Getting past 4 to 6 weeks yes. I just dont have time to try naturally for the next 2 years. All I have had since 6 years ago is AMH 5.3 about 2 weeks ago, goin for a transvaginal scan probly around mid oct to see what its like in there, as I have been harrassing my gp for things to do. Re the weight thing...I have enough motivation to lose it for the first time for so long..and the time frame you mention is doable just hoping they dont turn me away at first appt to say nope we wont even do testing until its gone...crossing the bridge before I come to it as usual

    I will stop moaning now...doesnt help that I am a pretty impatient person....dont care if its not my bday yet I must open the present now.

    I was a bit over the bmi at the first appt and the nurse said to lose it before dr appt but at the dr appt he didnt weigh me but they weighed me when I picked up the drugs and said if I was over then I wouldn't be able to start but I was under by then
