    Hi Mrs P..........

    Now don't despair just yet love....it's early days as you well know. So, what's the plan of attack?? FS going to increase stimms?? Or maybe you'll just end up stimming for a little longer than normal??? Good to see your lining is heading in the right direction

    Am keeping my for you, but am sure everything is going to be fine. Thanks for keeping us in the loop love, and good luck with your next lot of scans/bloods (is that on Fri??) for you....keep your chin up too!!!

    Well, I discovered the reason why! I screwed up my meds ... It's a little strange the way the orgalutran has to be taken, and I just didn't read my instructions properly even though I look at the sheet multiple times a day, and it's as clear as it can be. I relied on my alarms too much. Anyway I was supposed to take it day 2,3, and 4. Then miss a day, and then every second day after that. Basically I've been taking it every day. Hence the suppression of growth .
    FS said not to take it any more, and when I go in on friday we will see how things are. Worst case scenario is that we cancel and try again next month.

    BTW, E2 - 7164, P4 5.3, LH , <1. Which co-insides with the lack of growth. Gosh, I am so upset, I can't believe I made such a stupid mistake. I've always been so vigilant with meds...

    Talk to you friday, and thanks again for your support.

    Mrs P..............

    Don't be too hard on yourself love!!! These things happen and it sounds like there's still a chance this cycle will still go ahead. As you say, worst case scenario is to cancel and try again next month. Either way, it's going to be ok.

    I've never taken Orgalutran myself, just heard/read about it. I can understand how things could have become confused with those instructions plus the whole stress of doing a cycle and looking after DS, running the house etc and alarms that either go off when they shouldn't or don't when they should.....it's enough to make anyone not know if they're coming or going or have been!!!

    Just see what the go is tomorrow. Things may have rectified themselves. I'd say as long as there is some growth happening with your follies, then the cycle should continue. Am sure your FS will do what's best. I'm for you love and hoping that everything's back on track tomorrow when you go for your appointment.

    Am surprised those E2 levels coincide with a lack of growth....they seem pretty high to me???? Anyhoo love, take it easy, breathe, what will be will be and you're still in with a chance whether that be this month or next month Until next time........

    Thanks Blonde, - The 1st E2 reading was great, but the second went down slightly, meaning that the follies haven't changed. I wanted this last go to be the best effort we could give, but now I feel that I haven't given my best effort, so if our results aren't better than our last stim, then I want to do another stim. I need to be able to say to myself that I tried my best... If I hadn't screwed up then I would have been happy with what ever the outcome, as I'd have known I had done my best.
    Anyway, I'll let you know how tomorrow (D day) goes.

    Hi Mrs P..........

    I totally understand your feelings about wanting to give your best effort for your last go. The last thing any of us want is the "what if's" and "if only's" doing our heads in especially when it comes to getting off the IVF rollercoaster for good!!!

    Good luck at your appointment today. I'm that there's good news for you love!!! If not, think of this as a "practice run" for next month!!!

    Will be keeping an eye out for your post!!!................

    P.S.......Stop beating yourself up too.....do you hear me!!!! S*&t happens love, it was an accident. One way or another, everything will be ok and work itself out......

    BinB, - You sound like my nurse.

    We got 1 follie today. He said it measured 1.3, I'm guessing that means 10.3mm, so for this stage (CD 10) it's not good. We didn't bother to do bloods as the cycle has been cancelled. I'll make an appointment to discuss our next step, but as the nurse and I discussed, we will probably pick up the Lucrin again on CD 21 of my next cycle which should be late september, so it's an october cycle for us. Looks like we will be cycling together.

    Oh please, mighty powers that be, - let this little follie grow to become an unlikely natural miracle.

    Hi Mrs P...........

    On the one hand...Bugger!!! in regards to having your cycle cancelled, on the other.... that the follie grows and you get a BFP anyway this month!!!! Anything's possible!!!

    If I sound like your nurse, that's 'cause we're obviously talking sense!!! This was your practice run love, time to get serious (if needs be) for October!!!

    I'm due to see WDA towards the end of Oct and won't be cycling until around the end of Nov. So........ the final starting order for the "BFP Olympic Relay Stimming Team" is as follows: Our fellow IVF'skateer Dom off the blocks next, followed closely by you love (although am hoping you'll be well and truly off and running with a BFP by the end of the month) and me bringing up the rear!!!


    Ok love, chin up and get BD'ing!!! Am keeping my and sending heaps of your way!!!!

    Hi Mrs P............

    Read over on the other threads that you're going to do a cycle at the end of the month with WDA.....Am pleased to hear it and will be keeping my for you!!!! Will be interested to hear what your opinion is of him.....

    Domiffy girl.....Don't know where you're at these days, but you must be close to starting your next cycle (if you haven't already???) Anyhoo, thinking of you luv and hoping all is well with you.....

    AFM: DP and I have just finished our "mini break". We took the last 5 days off work to celebrate our birthday's (Ours are only a couple of days apart. Not much to celebrate regarding my birthday as far as I'm concerned!!! ) We had a great time pretending to be tourists, going to Underwater World and Alma Pk Zoo etc. Can't pretend to be happy about turning 40 though. It doesn't help that I'm still childless either I definitely didn't envision this for myself, although I never wanted to have children until I was in my early to mid 30's anyway. Thought my family would be well and truly completed by now. Life rarely goes according to plan, that much I've learnt.

    Anyhoo, have booked in to see my GP early next week to organise getting baseline bloods, hormone master, AMH test etc all done again in preparation for my next cycle in November. The last time I did these tests was 18 months ago and I just want to see where things are at now. AF's due at the end of next week sometime, then I'll give FN Kate a call or an e-mail to let her know to expect results to come through and to discuss with her about starting the pill when October's AF arrives. I'm pretty sure it'll arrive before I'm due to see WDA again at the end of October. I want to start the pill early as I need to time this next cycle carefully as I have some family commitments that I need to work around regarding my mum. She's not well at the moment and will be going into hospital to receive treatment etc, so want to be available for her when that happens. Hopefully, it won't be a problem to be on the pill for an extra few weeks more than usual.

    Ok, must go and do some work ladies Until next time, take care........

    Well Hello there Blonde and Mrs P. So sorry for the long silence (again!) I keep meaning to pop in and say hi but time just seems to get away from me…

    Can’t believe it is September already. I feel like I have spent most of this year wishing it away waiting to cycle. Seems like such as waste of a year! I have had a few moments of despair here and there, just feeling like a BFP with a healthy bub at the end of it is never gonna happen. It all just seems so out of reach but I try not to dwell on it too much…

    Have really just been staying busy – I’ve had fun laying our new bamboo flooring over the last couple of weekends… it’s click together – no nailing or gluing and if you weren’t being as anal as me it would be very quick…. DP had to go off and do his own thing as he couldn’t bear to watch me hand select each board to make sure the floor would flow and not have odd coloured planks stick out here and there… so nice to finally get rid of our manky old carpet and tiles…

    uni assignments all in and have just started a new unit for this semester – so that will keep me occupied and out of mischief for the next couple of months….

    Not much to report re IVF other than to say I won’t be cycling this month… grrr… I was really disappointed to learn that my FS is away all of October and as my next AF will arrive around 22 September FS would not be there to do my procedures by the time my eggies are ready to be collected at the beginning of Oct. I briefly contemplated going to WDA but have decided to wait… if my next AF day 21 falls after 14 October (which it will) I can start a cycle with the FS that will be filling in for him – she will monitor me (but I don’t want her to do my procedures) and then my regular FS will be back in time for EPU… all very complicated. I will be seeing FS next Monday in preparation for my next cycle.

    Blonde… Congratulations (commiserations) on turning the big 40… sounds like you and DH had a lovely time doing touristy things… the only thing that bugs me about getting older is the aging eggs – if I had kids already I don’t really think I would have much of an issue with it. I’m trying to enjoy the age I’m at whatever it may be – just think in 10 years time 40 will seem young!… good to hear you are off to the GP to get some bloodwork done - it will be good for you to know how you’re tracking and peace of mind to know that all your levels are where they should be (they will be). Sorry to hear your Mum has some health issues… My own Mum turned 80 in February (I was a mid life baby) – she is in pretty good health but I know she’s not going to be around forever….

    MrsP… so sorry to hear that your last cycle was cancelled. Must have been so disappointing… especially after you got off to such a good start with that lovely E2 number. Good to hear your back on the horse and will be cycling again soon with WDA

    Well ladies that’s it for me for now… promise I won’t leave it so long next time round…. Take care and to you my dears.
