My step brothers wife is now pregnant with their third baby. Of course his mum is (dads partner) putting the hard word on us now... It will only be a matter of time before I burst into tears and scream at her that we've been trying since before her second grandchild was conceived!!
Just back from FS. No change on the follies, but it has only been 3 doses. Another 5 doses and back next week. If still no change she'll give me metformin tablets, apparently they increase your sensitivity to the FSH
Grrr I hate that feeling of people hassling you over TTC I hope the meds work and you get some nice size follies mac
9 DPO and really angry at myself bc I tested with an IC... BFN of course. Why do I do this to myself? I was doing so well! ahhh well another month over and 3 clomid cycles left. I know there is still a chance, especially since I used a F2F IC which I've found aren't sensitive. But I'm telling myself I'm out.
Oh that sucks Del Like you said there is still a chance it's early days.
I'm not feeling it this cycle at all so am fully expecting more disappointment. I'm going to Melbourne on Sat for my sisters birthday which will be a nice distraction...think I'm 7dpo today.
The moment when your best friend of 18 years Who has two kids under 4 tells you she is trying to get pregnant with number 3 and keeps texting you pictures of baby furniture....priceless is t the word I would use.
Ps- hi ladies! Still no bfp for me. Looks like Ivf is my only option. After loosing 30kgs. Babies don't seem to be on the cards for me
Hi Bubbles! Sorry to hear. If you mean you need to lose 30kg, Weight loss is do-able! I have nearly finished a round of the Michelle Bridges 12wbt and I have so far shifted 11 per cent of my body weight. I am now in the healthy BMI range and ready to start my first round of IVF round in August.
I find it therapeutic almost in a weird way to finally have my weight under control, when I have had no control over our TTC journey and months of disappointments.
Big hugs to you xx

Hi girls! Yeah she knows all about my ttc issues. That's what makes it worse. She's been helping me through it and now I am being excited for her and supporting her but really just dying inside. Now I feel i cant talk to her about it at all. Just having a whinge really
I have to loose 30kgs before I can even be considered for Ivf. I'm actually looking Into gastric sleeve surgery. I've been overweight all my life and this Ivf stuff is my final nail in the coffin so to speak.
I've found it depends on the clinic with regard to being in a healthy weight range. The clinic I am using will not do IVF if you are not in the healthy BMI. Others ask you to lose 5 percent of your body weight if you are deemed overweight.
I found this extract from RPA a really useful explanation as to why
Sorry to hear about your friend Bubbles. It sounds as though she is excited for her journey and just not thinking of your feelings. It must be really hard.
I have to get up and off to the gym, urgh. Have a great Friday!
