    Hi everyone sorry been absent due to work commitments started a new job & loving it & now about to do trigger shot tonight for round 2 iui. Had a crappy period that just seemed like it was never gonna end. Feeling positively blessed.

    Hey SJ,

    What was the outcome of your meeting today? Will you be going ahead with IUI?
    As for acupuncture I've done two periods of it. When I first came off the pill my cycles were very long due to PCOS and I got really depressed. ( PCOS also causes a lack of oestrogen which makes you down. The pill corrects it ) .. I had Chinese herbs and acu weekly for 2mths.. Made my cycle 33 days and cheered me up but too expensive!

    I then recently found a local acupuncturist as I had started getting long cycles again. The herbs cheered me up again but I didn't want to be dependant on them so stopped after 6 weeks.. Seem to be OK mood wise! It's very good for relaxing you and great when doing IVF.. If you have the money I recommend it

    Glad to hear your enjoying a new job BubbaB.. Always good to focus on something fun.. Good luck with the trigger!

    Hi miracle4me, not so great. I guess in the big scheme of things, it isn't bad and I know so many people have to do it these days...but I honestly thought I would never have to do ivf.
    I was surprised that the FS recommended it over IUI as he had said the opposite previously. he is ready to take me off clomid but said while we prepare for IVF that i should do one last month and try naturally.
    Maybe I am still shocked, but I just cried and cried. It always seems to be one thing after another doesn't it. I'm probably not in a great mind set at the moment so I will turn on my relaxation music
    I just did some yoga and that made me feel better. I'm very much looking forward to acupuncture tomorrow. It always seems to improve my mood and mind set.

    My acupuncturist hasn't prescribed herbs, but I am much the same as you and don't like to be dependent on the medicines we are given. Though it seems I have had to be for some time now. I hope that your acupuncture creates a little miracle before you have to do ivf!

    Bubba, how do you find IUI? FS told me it was the same drugs as IVFbut they just don't extract the eggs. He said I can do either option but more or less said IUI wouldn't be worth it. I'm still shocked about the whole thing. I was thinking IUI for months and he changed his tune....arghhhhh

    Funny how you can get different opinions from natural therapists than MDs!

    Sorry for my not so happy tune today! I will perk up though thanks for letting me vent my frustrations as I know most feel the same or worse! xx

    Ah SJ.. Never apologise! We are all here to support each other..
    If you really don't feel happy diving straight into IVF then don't. Do what you feel is right. Whether it be an IUI just to ease into the drugs or just Clomid for another few cycles. It took me 6mths to get my head around IVF and I have mentally prepared myself with lots of research and time for it to sink in..
    Don't rush it if its a huge shock.. Come June when I pick up the TCC ball I'll be going into it at my own pace and calm..
    Also.. It's your money and body so even if you have a 5% chance with IUI and can afford it do it if you want to!

    I personally thought 2k for a 7% chance wasn't worth it but that was just me..

    Keep up the yoga and meditation!

    Hey everyone howzit?
    SJ sorry to hear you're having a rough time atm. Take your time to work out what you feel comfortable & prepared to do for your body, dreams & wishes & financially too. I was stressing about $$$ too but I've sorted out a budget & a slush fund. Reading Barefoot Investor by Scott Pape helped me get things sorted for my circumstances. I've done it all acupuncture, herbs, mediation & yoga. You'll find what works for you. I can stress enough to do what works for you.
    And my all means get a 2nd opinion if you're not happy with current treatment plan. Life's too short to put up with things that don't feel right in the gut (literally). It took my over 6months to find a specialist willing to hear what I had to say & work together & be comfortable with options & choices.

    As for this round of iui we've had a few dramas administering the trigger shot. We both fck it up & had to call clinic to see if it wasn't too late. I was relying on DH to do it but you know you can't ask for much when there's cricket on! Heaven forbid!

    After mad panic calls & emails & flat phone & fib to get outta work... Flew down during lunch break & got nurse to do it & then flew back to work. I can't believe what a crazy **** 24 hours.

    This time round I've used OPK & that's saved heaps of going in for scans every 2nd day. Nailed it! Off getting trsf tomorrow & the TWW begins... Baby dust times by a million.

    Will keep you posted... I immediately felt a twinge post trigger shot today & currently enjoying a mild headache. On & up for us all.

    Hoping I can joib this thread.
    I have a bit of a ling story...view my profile if interested, bur basically ttc for 3 + years now and whilst at a wedding last weekend I blew up ... after a few wines....making it 10 x worse. My poor dp. It was about everything. ..not being good enough to be ask by my long term partner to be marry him and something that is supposed to be natural isn't happening ie baby! I feel like a failure. I put so much effort in and feel like I get anything back. I dont know how to think positively anymore about this whole ttc when time and time after my stupid af shows up. Why why why? Imbsorry to b put this depressing stuff in here...but god, why is this so hard?

    Hi girls sorry I tried to switch off all the fertility talk to see if a clear mind would help. Still no bfp on my end. We aren't going to do a 3rd iui just going to wait and do ivf second half of this year or start of next.

    Hi girls

    I'm strongly thinking of going down this route in the next few months and have found this thread really helpful.

    Hoping you all get bfp soon

    Hey 2Cute..

    Sorry to hear you haven't had a BFP but welcome back! A break is always good. Getting back to real life and remember who you are works wonders..

    Hi ladies, I'm much the same. I was trying to distance myself from forums and media and see how I felt. I removed myself from Facebook and it feels so good. Amazing the small things we can do. Let's hope you get a BFP without having to do IVF ladies. I'm hoping the same. We have decided not to jump into it. We have our interview for IVF on Monday though which we had pre-booked. Still gonna go.
    I am due to O in the next couple of days, so I'm staying optimistic!

    Baby dust to you all xx ✨
