Emzy that is great news!! Hopefully a new clinic and a fresh pair of eyes on your charts will get you your BFP!! I hope we are stimming together (really don't want to start any earlier than the 17th so EPU doesn't clash with my best friends wedding!!) Looking forward to being cycle buddies and might bump into you in the waiting rooms! Is Gareth based in Clayton or Richmond?
Emzy I am so sorry you had another BFN. Emzy I think that a change of clinic and FS might be what is needed for you as well. I read that JB mentioned she is getting an endometrial biopsy done this time. I am asking to get one done to. I am doing up a list to take to my new FS so that this time I get all bases covered..Big and take care.
I'm sorry Emzy, hope you can find a good clinic & that you get your BFP soon!
Do you guys think I'll be ok to have a go at archery during my stim cycle? I booked in for a short intro session (only an hour or so of shooting max) ages ago before I knew when my IVF cycle would be. It's on the 5th October & my EPU is scheduled for the 11th. I really want to do it & have been looking forward to it for ages. I'll make sure I use a light-weight bow. If I reschedule then the next course will be during my TWW which is probably an even worse time & otherwise I'll have to wait until next year as they don't run them that often. Do you think it will be ok?
Also, how important is it to stay relaxed during your IVF cycle? My job can be stressful sometimes & I'm concerned about it causing a problem. Basically I work in education & it's my role to cancel classes when teachers call in sick - I start work at 8 (but usually arrive a little early) & classes don't start till 9am. So the student's get an hours notice of class cancellations & that's the best I can do. However I regularly get abused by obnoxious students because I didn't text them before they left home (one student even had the hide to tell me that I had to use my personal mobile phone to text every student in class at 5.30am from my home). Every time a class has to be cancelled the students come & abuse me, even though it's not really my fault. This upsets me & stresses me out & makes me anxious about having to cancel classes & I'm concerned of the affect this might have during the IVF cycle. What do you all think?
Emzy,, I'm so sorry about your BFN. It's great however that you are changing FS and clinic. Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes can help. Also the new FS might try different method?
Stc, congrats on being PUPO. Hopefully the two week wait fly for you if that's possible.
Hi Ladies, joining this thread as I go and pick up my drugs tomorrow to start my 2nd stim cycle. I got 4 eggs last time, with only 2 that fertilised. Both FETs failed, so giving it another try.
Baby dust to everyone!

Heartstringz, I reckon archery will be fine, I did spin and abs classes while stimming! I can't remember, is this your first cycle? If so, just be careful if ur developing lots of follicles. I reckon, just gauge it by how ur feeling. The stress is the most important thing to avoid. I reckon try and find an acupuncturist or try yoga, I do yoga and I love it for relaxing.
Welcome klm, I think we've met on a previous cycle. Good luck!
Due to start sniffing tomorrow.
All I can say right now is if you are sick dont come to work! Everyone either has gastro or the flu (or both) right now, so no doubt I'll get sick right in the middle of my Ivf cycle. Great, freaking great. We can only afford to do a couple of cycles anyway, we can't afford to waste money having to delay if I get sick. Over this.
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
