    Ladies I have been laughing all morning... the anal comment from frances DH and the cobwebs comment from omgshoes were hilarious and I was laughing out loud! Rainbowbabe... immaculate conception maybe?! haha Chiefsgirl I also get DH to sort himself out so he is replenishing the source! Usually we BD 2-3 days before EPU (although I have only make it there once...!)

    Thank you all for the reassurance that I am not alone and for making me laugh

    Rozzie enjoy your shopping trip... very much deserved! Nothing like a little bit of retail therapy!

    Chiefsgirl I think calling in sick tomorrow is a wise idea... you need to listen to your body and look after yourself. Rest up xx

    Frances congrats on being PUPO

    Rainbowbabe that count and measurements sounds great I am also in for a scan and BT on Friday - will be my first one on day 8. I am starting to feel a bit of pressure down there. Let us know what they say when you get the BT results.

    Hi ladies hoping I can join in here. I am CD10 today this is my 5th stim 7th transfer if all goes well. I am in FNQ but cycling with Wazza in brissy as my old FS wouldn't try anything else and I couldn't do another cycle the same as the past 2 with an egg haul of 3 each time.

    I have had 3 miscarriages before IVF and 2 since and a 2nd trimester loss due to my sons kidneys not working and a total bladder blockage we lost Noah 22nd November last year.

    I am on a bucketload of meds this time dhea and melatonin for 5 months with vitamin e fish oil low dose aspirin megafol zinc coq10 and all previous stims have been 150-220iui final this time 350iui per day half in the am the other in the evening. Also added in prednisone and clexane and human growth hormone injections daily.

    Next scan and bloods Friday. I have them remotely wait til they receive the reports and phone in will find out of we are good to go for a Monday EPU. We had 9 follies on the left and 13 on the right which is great for us because I normally have 9-12 by now then they drop to 6 by cd12 and at egg pick up only 3 so of we got 6 this time I would be thrilled.

    I had a scratch and lipiodol flush a few months ago but my cycle was cancelled so had to wait 8 weeks so not sure if that will benefit us now.

    This is our kitchen sink attempt anything suggested offered or hinted at we took the option of

    Good luck and I will settle in this afternoon and read from the beginning to catch up on you lovelies. Thanks x Bella

    Hi all

    So much to catch up on will try and remember as on my phone!

    Frances - please thank your DH I really needed a laugh today and Congrats on PUPO

    Welcome Bella, so sorry to hear about your loss - I hope all goes well for you this time fingers crossed, I'm on DHEA too and some other vitamins (feel like I'll rattle if you shake me sometimes...)

    Rozzie - enjoy your break (think it was you apologies if not)

    And to everyone else in the TWW, stimming or other - good luck!

    AFM - I start menopur tonight - not sure I'm going to like this mixing malarkey... Had to wait an extra day for base line to be perfect but luckily it means my next appointment is not til Monday so don't have to cut my trip to Hunter Valley short - perfect time mid cycle no wine for me ;-(

    Thanks for all the support ladies

    Bella - Welcome, sorry you are here but this is the lucky thread and I will have my fingers crossed for you

    JB - I spoke to the clinic and they confirmed that I wrote all of them down. I was kind of expecting there to be more of them but I guess with approx 10-12 follies I should be happy. They have said DF will be stimming until Monday at least so she will have bloods and ultrasound on Friday and Monday.

    I am curious as to whether more follies will grow between now and then - so within the next 5 days. If not it will just be those that are there. It seems quite low for someone who has PCO and normally produces 25+ follies each month. I just don't get it. I just hope that each has an egg as we really want some frosties and usually they say only half contain an egg and then only half will fertilize. I'm quietly freaking out that we will only end up with 1 or 2 embies.

    I can't wait to see your results JB. Does anyone else ever get numbers like this? It's the first cycle so we didn't know what to expect really.

    welcome Bella, so sorry to hear about your loss. I hope this cycle brings you some luck.

    lizzyg I actually missed the call about the frozen 2 so all the message was that yes they are frozen. I didn't bother calling today - I figure the grades won't mean much and if they are frozen they must be in pretty good shape so I will just wait until we see Lyn again. How are you feeling?

    rainbowbabe your numbers sound ok. I was also reading high for PCOS though my FS didn't think I actually had it. I was kept on a really low dose. In the end I had 23 follicles, 7 that were mature size (over 13mm) but I only got 3 eggs. But, one got transferred and the other 2 made it all the way to day 6 for freezing so I think it is definitely quality over quantity that you want to seek. It is hard though when you hear the big numbers. I hope it all works out for you both. I am curious on how your donor choice works here in Australia though - do you get much info?

    good luck to everyone else - there are so many of us on here now !

    Gold ladies - just GOLD! You all make my day
    Francesthecat - your DH has me in tears And congrats on being PUPO!
    OMG - cobwebs hey? And I thought it was just me
    Bella - big hug for you luv, you've really been through the ringer ... for a dream cycle and pregnancy this time x
    Rozzie - go nuts! Aim for excess baggage on the return trip And enjoy Benders - such a lovely spot.
    Rarah - good luck tonight with the menapur, I'm sure you'll be fine, just don't drop it! Or you have to get a whole new pack, not just the dropped one
    Chiefsgirl - call in sick!!! Rest up take care of you x
    Rainbowbabe - love those numbers! From my perspective, they're awesome! With my donor they are only aiming to stim her for 10-12, so it sounds like your FS is playing it beautifully.
    Sharlee - oh dear - hubby is a drama queen - bless him, tell him it could be worse ... me and OMG are fighting back the cobwebs. I've practically regenerated and become a 40 year old virgin.
    To everyone I've missed good luck with where you're at and lots of to all x

    Hi everyone, so much to catch up on! So glad to hear all the positive news on how everyone's embies and scans are going. I have my first scan tomorrow morning at 9:30. It can't come quick enough! I'm feeling very full in my abdomen so hoping everything is just right in there.

    Im hoping I'm very close to EPU tomorrow as I'm not sure how much more of the oragultran injections I can handle. That injection is my worst enemy! Im a little interested to see when my next scan would be as the weekend is approaching. Last time I had a second scan 3 days later but that would be Sunday and I'm pretty sure they would be closed. I was going to call the clinic today to find out but didn't want to get ahead of myself and I'm always annoying the nurses with questions. Does anyone else feel like they are always calling the clinic lol

    Will let you all know follicle numbers tomorrow night
