    Nessie so lovely to hear from you!! I'm so happy that you're enjoying watching your little boy grow up and focussing on your beautiful family. It's amazing how life-consuming IVF can be, isn't it? It's wonderful to be able to step back from it all and live in the now again, not live in the 'what ifs', what if this happens, what will I do if that happens... Thank you for posting and your good vibes
    Starfish how wonderful is it not to have to deal with real estate agents and conveyancers anymore Glad to hear there wasn't too much sadness. You've got so much to look forward to and plan for and a wonderful adventure ahead of you Had to laugh about waiting until 26 weeks to order nursery furniture I'd be the same!!
    Crofty it's all happening for you, yay Fantastic news about the follicles and I'll be thinking of you on Monday for the EPU. I used to have those 38 hour triggers too. It was always a relief to get to that stage and have a day off from jabbing/medication before EPU Good luck hon.
    Swedie it is so brilliant to hear from you! I'm with Starfish and was getting a little worried for you. Awful, awful news about your MIL. No wonder you've been preoccupied. My heart goes out to you and your DH.

    afm the appointment with new FS went well and we're looking at a natural cycle FET in June, with additional luteal support. She's getting all the information from my previous clinic and the fibroid treatment sent to her so she's up to speed, but I really liked her. I said my main frustration with the previous clinic was lack of communication and not being given any options/choices, so she said she'd certainly make sure that didn't happen with her. I'm really hoping Crofty kicks off a new batch of BFPs

    Crofty - soon epu - let us know I you went.... Very exciting times ahead for you...

    Starfish - how exciting to finish work soon.....totally magic time....soon to meet little one. Awesome to get the furniture so you can finish the nursery...then it aint long to wait....
    I have almost done the new nursery - I have actually swapped Archie to another room so we can use Archie old room for the new nursery. At the moment it will be used as MIL room when she is here - we are sharing her with hubby's sister meanwhile she is getting treatment.
    SO I cant really finish it off - Need to buy a big boy bed so we can swap with archie;s cot, as he still uses it (as a normal bed)

    Rubee - Sounds excellent with the new FS - positive vibes already from the start.... I agree with you - hopefully Crofty kicks off and then a row of nie bfp's!!!

    Thank you Nessie

    All good here - hoping to go on light duties very soon. HR was horrified that I wasnt already....I just need my boss to get back to me so we can discuss it....My work is getting very demanding and superbusy and it is starting to take a toll on me....planning to work to 38 weeks....but I can take 2 weeks sick leave before that if it goes pear-shape....Anyway...we'll see...

    All the best girls

    Rubeedoo, As you will know from my previous posts (probably ad nauseum) I am a big fan of the natural cycle with additional luteal phase support, I count it as a huge reason I achieved my pregnancy with Tom. I think luteal phase support has 'gone out of fashion' in IVF (its like anything in life, there are fads and fashions) but I think it can make the difference (and I think it did for me). If the theories are correct that it is excess oestrogen that contributes to fibroid formation then it made sense to me that other hormones would be out of whack, especially progesterone. (You may remember that I have adenomyosis and grapefruit sized fibroid). Anyway, long story short, I think natural cycle (to maximise natural progesterone production) plus luteal phase support makes a heck of a lot of sense for us fibroid-growers, and I want you to know that I am hoping like crazy that it also makes the difference for you, and gives you a wonderful, healthy BFP.

    Thanks for the well wishes ladies!! So epu went perfect to schedule - 6 follies on Friday, 6 eggs picked up and all mature- well that's where the good luck ends unfortunately - now we wait as DH had zero sperm in his sample, then we had to hang around for TESA and first sample from left testicle - zilch!!! We're now waiting patiently to see how the right sample (which the doc said looked pretty good) turns out - we did see at least one little swimmer in the very quick sample up on the screen but it does take a while to get through apparently - so we are hoping and wishing with everything we have that we get something fertilised for transfer otherwise what a waste of my egg collection!!!!! So frustrating and so close to Mother's Day - I just feel so down at the moment as i feel as though i have done everything possible to make this cycle the best yet, been in the best shape of my life physically and emotionally (but can't let go of that last little bit of hope) anyway sorry for the me post xo

    Oh Crofty, I want to do a big cheer for your 6 beautiful mature eggs but can understand the HUGE frustration you and DH must be feeling. Has this ever happened before?

    Crossing my fingers so tightly for you that some viable sperm will be found to turn those great eggs into lovely embryos.

    Sending big hugs your way while you play this awful waiting game xx

    Starfish xoxo - Just got a call to say they found enough to inject all 6 with ICSI - so fingers crossed now we get some fertilisation - step 1 down This was DH's first aspiration - he's recovering well (so far) but we did always know this was a possibility as he's always had low motility and low mobility plus low volume and today it all came to a head (unexpectantly) - guess we just hope and pray a as we always do with the fertility game

    Crofty, so thrilled for you with 6 mature eggs and enough swimmers to ICSI (finally!). It must have been such a stressful day for you. Hope you are resting now. Am sending healthy, growing vibes to those embies (one vibe for each eggie!)

    Crofty what a day you've had!!! Brilliant news about the six eggies, that's fantastic! And phew for enough sperm to ICSI each, you must have been holding your breath all day. Now for the final step...fertilisation!! Come on little embies, grow, grow, grow.
    Trying thank you thank you for the information about natural cycles and progesterone levels etc. I didn't link it all and now it's starting to make sense. I always felt like they shouldn't have transferred the good embie last August because I was in really bad shape post EPU, with some OHSS. I had to take a full week off work, it was so bad, yet they didn't check my bloods, estrodial levels, nothing. Monash IVF feels as if they treat the individual and don't have a one-size-fits-all approach that my previous clinic did. Can I ask, how do you cope with your fibroid??? I know my orange size one was debilitating enough, but a grapefruit
    Swedie good luck getting Archie to give up his cot I hope the transition is a smooth one for you. Does your job involve hard physical work? Put yourself first! I'm so glad they're finally putting you on lighter duties!! Only a few weeks left to go
    Starfish even less time left for you Am thinking of you and Swedie and I'll be pacing when the times come for you both
