    Nicklee - how is it going? I think I am going to bite the bullet and book in for acupuncuture today after i have spoken to the clinic and see how my bloods are going whether the FET is going to go ahead this month or not fingers crossed it is.

    Kadre - Hi welcome i wish you all the luck in your IVF journey and hope its a short one. I am going through my first FET, I havent had one before been through 3 fresh IVF cycles but none for freeze, on the plus side my FS said FET can have a better % chance of working than fresh because they use your own bodies hormones, keep positive and just think the next cycle you wont have all the drugs it will be alot less stressful. If this one Dosent work we are thinking of freezing the good ones and maybe opting out of a transfer on the fresh cycle becuase of how our FS explained it to me...but the wait/disappointment is always there because you just want a BFP and you will be so emotional with all the drugs and rational thinking will go out of the window, hope all goes well on Wednesday.

    SleepyBear - so sorry to hear of you MC's you must of been so upset but dont give up you will get there, it is such a tiring/emotional roller coaster we have to go through to get the result we want, you will find the the strengh to get you through, maybe going for the second option or switching FS will get you back on track of thinking positive again.

    Silverdragon - it must be hard for you with your DH not been around, how did your FET go? was you having your bloods done everyday? i am on my second week of bloods now waiting for my LH Levels to get there. I am going to try acupunture this time, she specialisings in women going through fertility treatment reading a few of the comments on here made my mind up. I agree with your comments you have to allow yourself the disapointment to move on to the next cycle.

    I have felt really teary these past few days just thinking my FET is coming closer and all the what ifs are running through my head will it work this time? will it thaw? or am going to see the one red line again . I'm just at the point were all my friends have children and im just watching them grow up and with each passing year their getting older and Im still trying for the longed for BFP. A work collegues wife came in to the office last week with their new born baby girl and i am so so happy for them I was smiling and holding the baby etc but when i got home i just crumbled and I'm crying now writing this I just wished it was our time and it was me holding our new born baby.

    My first ever post...hi lovely ladies. We're only just embarking on the IVF journey, we see nurse at QFG on Friday to go through treatment plan from 'Wazza' (as he is known on this forum) and DH to hand in sperm sample - he works away 5 days on 5 days off so it takes a bit of juggling to get him 'in on the action' I'm truly nervous as I never thought it would be me doing IVF, I have never met anybody who has gone through it and feel terribly lonely at times, especially since most of my friends have had their babies, except for my BFF who is having her third at 40, naturally! We already have a gorgeous 11 year old daughter (another reason why I never thought I'd be having IVF) who is desperate for a sibling

    Hi KJ. My FET was quick and painless. The waiting is the killer! I am not due for a bt until 21st June and I am not a poas addict but have wanted to do a sneaky test before then. I have no signs or symptoms that I am pg which I think I should have felt by now considering I am 4dp 6dt. But I do have alot of side effects from the hrt tabs.
    Welcome Tandi. Yes while this crazy journey is hard I guess we just have to take the ride. I felt emotional last night as I stopped hoping and accepted that I may not be pregnant again but also realised the joy I felt with the hope that I could be after fet. That is the closest I have ever gotten to a bfp as I knew half the work was done. I had a 6day embie on board that looked healthy so chances are good right? If anything I want to savour that feeling. Even if I can never carry any of my embies to term....
    Anyway I will continue to drive myself around the bend with the 2ww. I just have to get through my final exam then I can really drive myself mad even more with symptom spotting. Hehehe.

    Also Tandi wanted to mention it must be hard on you with dh away so often and having many friends with kids. I don't know if any of your close friends or family have had fertility problems but I don't have that. I have kept this process very secretive so BH is really a big source of venting and sharing the happy moments for me. I hope you find it comforting to know we are all in this together. My DH works away too...
    Good luck!

    Yay silverdragon... I am so excited for you in your 2ww. I feel the same way about the process... That whatever happens down the track with whether it sticks or not... For this moment in time you are pregnant!! That is such an awesome idea and I can't wait til it's my turn!

    I had my EPU today and it went well. I forgot about the painful experience of anaethetics and waking up etc, but it wasn't too bad. They got 6 eggs. I was hoping for more but they all tell me that is good for someone who converted from IUI. We decide to do ICSI on all of them to have the best chance.

    Now fingers crossed for a good fertilization rate and 6 healthy embryos!!

    Fingers crossed Silverdragon and Kadre 6 is good I had that on my first IVF Cycle, glad your pick up went well. Welcome Tandi it must be hard for you if you have already had a child naturally and now you have to do IVF hope all goes well on Friday with your treatment plan.
    Well my bloods showed i had my surge in LH level and I am booked in for my FET on Sunday, yes!!!!! so glad its happened this month, i have a scan on friday to make sure my womb lining is thick enough and i have also booked in for acupunture on the sunday morning before transfer so really excited I just pray my little frosty thaws now. The Frozen cycle is so quick and painless and drug free which I am happy about its a break from the fresh cycle I have my fingers crossed for everyone

    All good news there ladies! 6 eggs is good, the big part is how many will make it...you may have all 6 get there which is awesome. Quality over quantity in this instance.
    Good luck for your transfer on Sunday KJ. How exciting!
    I spoke to the fertility nurse today as I have doubts my embie made it really believe it decided not to stick around...strange but that is my gut instinct. She said I could do a hpt on the weekend so I will do that then I can stop having so much anxiety about it all. I have absolutely no pg symptoms and I guess I sound be expecting them by now but everyone is different. I think I am just keeping my feet on the ground and not getting to hopeful as I will have a long way to fall. The nurse said that is a good thing.
    I just feel that if this didn't work, get AF rolling in and get another cycle going but I will not get AF until I stop the hrt....oh boy. Looks like I gotta find something to do with my free time hahaha

    Hi all, hope you'll all doing OK. Tomorrow is my CD11 scan to check follicles, I get a bit anxious worrying about what we'll see.... there will only be 1 or 2 & that they r the right size for the trigger on Friday then IUI. This week my FS has had to go o/s so I'll be seeing the other FS that works in the same rooms and he'll be with me through this cycles IUI, kinda nervous about that..

    Hi Nickilee. Was wondering about your ttc journey as I see you have been trying for 5 years and using iui. May I ask why the fs has suggested this parth instead of ivf or was this your wish?
    Good luck for a successful iui procedure on Friday. Fingers crossed. I guess iui would involve less pain then an ivf epu ;-)

    Yeah umm we have been TTC for 5 yrs on & off, tried for 2 yrs naturally then saw 1st FS who's approach was weightloss & Metformin... gave up on that & found new FS who was also fixated on weightloss which turned me off for a bit so went back to natural TTC with herbs & acupuncture. At end of 2012 with still no BFP & getting older I found new FS who was right for me, did lots of tests inc chromosomes & HSG, he decided to start with Clomid + Ovidrel trigger & IUI for 3 or 4 cycles then we'll discuss options if not successful. This is 2nd cycle
