    Hey Amiricle4me,

    I'm so glad I found this thread, I was starting to think that I was the only one going through this (as you do when your mind takes control)

    Your not the only one feeling like that, I rather hibernate at home and not be around large groups, my mood has change dramatically over the last 18months (my poor hubby)
    At the start of us trying for a baby we did the whole diet, vitamins and no alcohol thing but it seemed nothing was working so after a year we started living life back to normal and not let trying for a baby be so life controlling.. (that probably sounds harsh... but that's what we had to do as we were both getting way to depressed and frustrated)
    it's even harder when 90% of our close friends have kids or a new born and most of the babies weren't planned and it happened so easily for them....
    Don't get me wrong I love their kids but sometimes its really hard to be around them and watch them and seeing the love they have for their kids... I just want to be able to feel the bond and love they have for their kids with a baby of our own.... (sorry for the depressing post I'm just having a really bad day...)
    back to your couple of questions- My hubby is 24 and I'm 22 nearly 23.
    I'm not sure how many more cycles we will have before we start IUI but i know that if we don't have a BFP this month then we have to explore our other options.
    But that's also up to the hubby as he is having a hard time with all this as he thought we would fall pregnant first try, so his still in denial that it hasn't/won't happen as easily as he thought..

    thanks for the welcome MissA

    So sorry for your loss Mummzy it must be so hard for you!!

    Hi Kr,

    Thank you for making me feel a bit more normal!
    I know it's affecting my life a lot though as I'm rowing with pretty much everyone.. I have to be very careful how much more I do as if I'm not careful I'm going to cut off everyone! I used to be very social and always out and about so it's a huge change..
    The poor DH copped it yesterday because he was having a mid week wine..we agreed he wouldn't drink in the week to improve his swimmers so I went mad after all the tests and stuff I have to do.. Ah! It's a long and horrible journey..
    I did make the call yesterday tho and book us in for IVF in late Feb..
    Clomid has until then to work it's magic or I'm hitting the hard stuff lol..

    Kr and miracle - its totally changed my life too. I feel like the last year is a big black dark wasted hole. The ups and downs and emotions that no one else gets. I find it hard to socialise with others and just want to live a simple quiet life where I'm not faced with everyone being happy or pregnant.

    As I have DD I felt so guilty that it was impacting on her too.

    Maybe it wears you down but I'm feeling a bit better about it at the moment. Even though I had a big break down during lunch today. The break downs become shorter and I get on with my day. At the beginning of TTC I needed days off work I was such an emotional mess and work myself into a state. On the surface everyone thinks im fine but inside I'm a wreck. A second away from tears at any moment. I'm snappy and irritable. Its horrible.

    I am trying to focus on the good things. Took a holiday a few months ago. Looking forward to christmas. Doing gardening and some renos on the house. I also dropped back to part time at work to have more me and family time.

    Miracle- how do you 'book in' for ivf in advance? an appointment to discuss with your ob or actually booked the start of treatment?

    Either way that is an exciting move and something to work towards.

    Hey Miss A..
    You have described it perfectly as a 'black hole' of a wasted year. It's like I'm permanently in a state if waiting. Waiting for appointments, results, good news, bad news, my period and of course a baby..

    It's like waiting for a bus for a whole year and we all know how frustrating that is! Thanks for making me feel like I'm not alone..I have good days/weeks like today when i feel up beat and strong..and then whole weeks where I can't function at all.. I guess recognising those changes and how to deal with them is in itself is a big thing..

    We have been seeing specialists since April and as a result we signed onto the public system in May.. We waited 5mths for our appt and in October we went to RPA and they have given us the initial paperwork and forms to go ahead with treatment depending on what we decided.. We have also been double dipping with Genea and while we have been waiting for RPA we started Clomid and ovulation tracking with Genea which I'm doing now.. In late Jan we'll get all our bloods and semen samples done again for RPA and when we go to our 2nd appt in Feb we will have everything set to make the IVF decision and start..we have poor chances naturally so RPA are happy to help..

    Hi Hey Miss A,
    Not sure if this is helpful or not but I'm just going through the process of booking in for ivf next year. At WFC this is the steps I did:
    -Appt with FS to discuss options/ivf
    -Both have blood tests including AMH for the female
    -Female to have pelvic ultrasound
    -Male to have SA
    -Appt with FS to confirm exact treatment protocol
    -Register with the clinic/lab and have a nurse interview. Let them know what month you wish to start and you go on the list
    -Call on CD1 of the month you are starting to begin treatment

    Hope that helps !

    Just seen the post by miracle4me, sounds pretty similar to me. Also forgot to mention you need to sign the consent forms in the appt as they need to be witnessed by the FS

    Ok - thanks guys. Well I think in that case I'll have to wait until my follow up FS appointment in March. FS gave me 3-4 mts on clomid and then reassess so if it's a disaster by then still I may ask to start IVF then. I had all my bloods, SA, etc done with my initial referral to the FS so hope I could be just ready to go.

    Anyway, been feeling down in the dumps about things. Not really 'feeling' anything from the clomid. Went in for my first blood test at day 8 and my levels look much better than last month so it's lifted my spirits for the moment.

    E2 = high 800s (usually only in 100s and 200s this early and took up to day 18 to get over 500)
    LH = 3 (got to a max of 4 last month at day 18)

    Have to go back in for US and another BT tomorrow.

    there is a nicely growing follicle (or two)

    I know it sounds silly but count yourself lucky Miss A! I got ALL the nasty symptoms from the Clomid and my cycle was cancelled today due to nothing happening at all..
    Fingers crossed you ovulate
    It sounds like your all set to start IVF if the Clomid doesn't work which is good! If all the preliminary tests are done then its pretty much as soon as you want to go ahead unless your in the public system..
    Are you ovulation tracking with bloods and scans on all cycles or just taking it and hoping for the best on some?
    Sorry, is this your first cycle? I'm getting so confused lol!
    I'm being bumped up to 100mg next cycle but have to wait two weeks till I can induce a period..fun times!

    miracle - yes first month with tracking. Will probably have every month tracked so they can see what is going on and I have more details about what is going on to know where to go from here (or give me evidence for IVF).

    I was with genea and they said i could go straight to IVF but it felt I was being pressured into IVF being my only option and I felt it was too soon (this was in June). Also so expensive! They would not try clomid or injectibles first . I've changed centres since and the new centre has put me on Clomid as since my m/c i'm not even ovulating.
