    Sorry to hear the news abh! I know that feeling. I did another hpt this morning and the test didn't change. It really made me mad this cycle to hear
    people saying there is still hope that the hpt is wrong and not reliable!! It must have been all the hormones I wad on Hahahaha. I stopped taking the progesterone also ate yesterday morning so I am now hormone free....I feel so good this morning. Not lethargic or teary. So bizarre what those drugs do to you. I have just made an appointment with the fs for Friday morning before my bt to talk about a plan. I am going in there very confident in my plans forward.
    Yes KJ the expense is alot for all of this treatment. I am even questioning if spending the money on embryo glue and acupuncture is worthwhile if my body cannot even hold a pregnancy. I have yet to think more about which one we will continue to use. At first thought the embryo glue will go as I feel that other benefits can be had by acupuncture. It is certainly very relaxing!
    I used to have alot of hope with life and imagine everything will work out with ttc but I just don't know anymore. Weird but when I ask myself what gives me the most satisfaction right now the answer is my studies. I could see that would change if we were successful with ttc but it is hard sometimes to get so attached to something that has created alot of heartache. It doesn't help that dh doesn't want kids so sometimes it feels like I am going against the grain of what is 'natural'. Geez this business messes with your head hey?
    Good luck for all those that are in the tww or about to be. I for one admire you all for keeping at it. Let's hope the reward is just around the corner!!!

    Sorry to hear Silverdragon, it is hard when people are saying there is still hope I get mad sometimes with it also, I think its because mainly they are from people who haven't had to experience infertility and they don't know what we are going through. I know myself my boss said to me on tuesday it will happen for you don't worry or get upset I felt like shouting at him you don't understand all the hope you build up and still in the back of my head im thinking I may never get pregnant, I have to rely on IVF because my tubes are no good. It must be really hard for you if your DH does not want children because you will be the only one going through the disappointment and emotions I do feel for you, please don't give up do you still have 4 blastie frozen left? Go until you have none left and then go into another IVF if you need to and decide after that one, it looks like you get pretty good results from your eggs 19 is good. We had Embryo glue with the first cycle but when we changed FS the new one said don't waste your money so the last two we haven't used glue, I would go with acupuncture instead, it not only relaxes you but gets your blood flowing through your body which is what you need for implantation but this is my personal thoughts. It definitely messes with your head I agree.

    Thanks Silverdragon and KJ. I will give acupuncture a go and Chermside West suits me as it is close to home.

    At work and just feel like crying. I rang FS today and he is going away in July, so we can't do an IVF cycle till August, which I have no problem with FS having leave, just he didn't tell me this when I saw him two weeks ago. I had all my hopes pinned on doing a cycle in July. Ever thought about changing FS, but then have to get new referalls for my husband and I and he works away, so that isn't easy.

    I have an appointment to see FS next Friday, so I am going to let him know my disappointment, he was well aware that we would only do 3 x IUI and then be moving onto IVF.

    On the off chance that it could happen naturally, my husband will be home at the right time now that AF arrived two days early. I have clomid, so I reckon I will start taking that tomorrow for days 2 to 5 and see what this month brings. Do you think that is ok? I just hate to waste a month without doing anything.


    Thanks for reading.

    ABH - Waveny Hollands number is 3359 4885 for Chermside West. Oh no I do feel for you, that's not good news I would feel exactly the same but im sure there is a way around it so don't give up yet please. Can your FS pass you onto one of his/her colleagues for this cycle? and then once you have a name I'm sure you can ring your doctors surgery up and they will do the referall without you having to go in and just pick it up. When I changed FS with the same fertility clinic this all I had to do, I was working and my husband went into to reception and picked the referral up without seeing the doctor....please ring your doctors and find out. I have never done IUI/Clomid so really sorry but I cannot advice you on this. Sending you hugs

    Oh abh what a nasty blow when you are feeling like that. I will make sure I check with my fs if he plans on taking leave soon. I really hope the clomid and acupuncture works so you can blow the fs off. Be nice to not have to worry about needing them so much!!
    KJ thanks for the advice. I am glad you agree with the embryo glue cancellation. It was my gut instinct so will follow through with that! I think I have a very sensitive hormone balance system and getting pregnant will be a miracle! I won't know myself when and if it happens. I am thinking it may change dh's mind about having kids. His first wife fell pregnant to him on purpose so he married her and was miserable for 16 years, I guess that is hard on him and it deeply affected his view of parenthood (she continually told him he was a bad father). I just hope I get the opportunity to show him it can be different with someone else...if only we get the chance. I told him today it wasn't successful and he sounded genuinely disappointed. Maybe he is turning a corner?
    Good luck with everything ladies. Hope you enjoy the acupuncture! It is really a nice chill out time.

    ABH, my FS has had to go on emergency leave for 5 weeks just before my CD11 scan so I have been moved to the other FS in the rooms & he did this IUI, so I would call your rooms & find out if someone else is taking over his patients during his leave . I was upset & a bit scared at first as u build a relationship with your FS but everything went fine, well . I'm 37 on Saturday & feel very old..... I should have started the IUI / IVF journey years earlier & stopped fluffing around with trying naturally...

    ABH good luck with the fs and hope you can keep trying naturally if he doesn't come up with a solution. I really hope you don't have to take a break. That time will go very slow!
    Nickilee it is hard when you realise your age isn't it. Where does the time go. I find myself now having the conversations like "when I was younger" hahaha. Anyone around the age of 20 looks at me strange when I tell them I learnt to touch type on an electric typewriter. Mind you I did go to a country high school. Funny how people in society can say oh you are not old you are still a pup but when you look at your age in fertility terms the clock is just ticking away there!
    AF came for me this morning with no warning. Am a bit surprised as I only just stopped the pessaries on Tuesday night but I did then continue with my own natural progesterone i took to treat my pco. I see my fs tomorrow to discuss the way forward as my cycles had changed earlier this year but I would like this think it was a good thing but have lots of questions for him as to why he put me on hrt as a result.
    So I am very happy the next cycle begins and the journey continues and yes filled with much heartache but thank god I am not alone in this! Nickilee yout haven't yet done ivf correct?
    Have a nice Thursday ladies.

    Thanks so much KJ, Silverdragon and Nickilee for your kind words and support. It really does help, especially since the bad news always seem to arrive when DH is away for his week at work. I will certainly be asking my FS next Friday if another FS can take me on whilst he is on leave. It so hard FS has you in such a vunerable position knowing how much you want to have a baby and that you will pretty much do anything. I am certainly learning alot from these forums.

    to you Silverdragon and for your next cycle.

    I totally hear you Nickilee I would of been upset and scared too for the same reasons feel for you and ABH, we expect our FS's to be there all the time for us which is selfish really but I know how much I want it and 5 weeks is a full cycle and just getting ready for another if that one fails. I hope you sort it ABH because I really wouldn't want you to miss a cycle it would be a very slow 5 weeks. Well I am at day 4 after my transfer now and I had showed some bleeding last night only slightly and couldn't stop crying because I feel like its my AF coming and stupid me did a HPT I couldn't help myself and it was BFN and I know its way too early but just feel so down this time I don't know why, just that hopeless feeling

    My FS will be away for 5+ weeks so that works out to be 2 IUIs for me. Silverdragon, I'm doing 3 or 4 IUI cycles, currently on 2nd, then move on to IVF if unsuccessful. Its been a week since IUI & I feel nothing... last time I had preg like symptoms from the progesterone booster but not this time. I have a feeling it didn't work. Well, its my bday on Saturday, having dinner with friends looking over the river at Watt, so I'll focus on that for now. This next week is going to drag....
