Congrats on the award ally!!
Joining this thread after just completing my first cycle of IVF it was a BFN 😢 but I sort of knew so I had prepared myself! Now I am going to do FET but have been advised I need to take a full month off first, confused, can anyone explain why?
I go to see the Dr on 27 May for day "21" appointment and will start everything again in June!
I think it's to give your body/mind a break. I did back to back stim cycles last year and thinking back, it was so stressful even though at the time, I thought I knew best.
Congrats Ally on your award!!!!
I need some advice. For almost four years my life has been on hold while ttc. I wanted to travel and go back to university, I've done neither. I have put off so much in the hope I would have a family by now. I'm the type of person that gives 100% once I commit to something, and I hate letting people down. An opportunity to progress within my workplace has come up and I'm not sure what to do. Financially, I would be better off, which is a huge plus considering the expense that is ivf. Emotionally, it could become stressful but not much more than I already deal with. I know that I'm the perfect candidate for the position but cant help but wonder 'what happens if I get pregnant' but, it's taken four years so far, who's to say it won't take another four (not trying to be a pessimist). I wont get this opportunity again unless I leave and go elsewhere, which I won't. I get salary sacraficing and am entitled to maternity leave plus gov ppl. If I do get pregnant and leave, it would be easy enough to find someone else. I would also be earning enough for both DH and I to work part time once I returned to work to give him the opportunity to be a part time SAHP, which he would love. I may not even get the role if I apply, but would hate looking back with regret. What would you do?
Ngaiz I had a similar situation (except we've only been trying 2.5 years). I thought about the stress increase that would have come with a promotion, and decided against it. I feel that right now my focus is on family.
But you sound like you're in a different situation - and it sounds like you've thought a lot about it so you must be interested! If it is going to gain something for you, and not lose you anything, I can't see why you wouldn't at least apply. You've answered your own question 'what happens if I get pregnant'.
I think maybe applying for this position is a good idea. It sounds like a positive step forward for you personally and also a bonus , that when you do fall pregnant, you can take that time off etc as you described.
I say go for it!!
Thank you ngaiz and sel
Take the job Ngaiz everything else will fall into place
10 more days. AF you had better be on time!

i haven't joined a cycle thread in quite a while but i noticed some familiar names here and thought i would pop in. Dont think we will be cycling till July due to needing funds from the tax man, as our last one broke us.
little background for the girls who dont know me, we have been ttc for 9 yrs, 7yrs with ART. I have PCOS, with borderline NK cells (14) and recently found out my tubes are blocked after changing clinics with exploratory surgery, dh is ok apparently by the latest tests, but he is about to do the SCSA fragmentation test.
We have had done 6 full cycles with 9 transfers, 4 resulted in early m/c, with a POC test being done on last m/c and finding out we had trisonmy 13.
Last cycle was a huge flop, my ovaries were suppressed too long (down regulated cycle) and then not the right amount of fsh was used to stir them up. We had 13 mature egs collected with only 3000 estrogen...hmmm so thinking we have an egg quality issue too.
Past clinic never did bt, so don't know if this estrogen problem is the norm for me.
We have been asked to go meet with pgs clinic to discuss maybe doing that next cycle. This coming cycle we will be an antagonist using menupur, orgalutran, omnitrope, fish oil, cq10, melatonin,vit D, DH antibiotics then after epu and transfer methasolone, clexane, me antibiotics , intrallipid, aspirin and pregynl (instead of pessaries), hmmm don/t think I have missed anything.
hope its an easier ride this time for all, especially a few who need some extra TLC xx
