    Octoberbaby what a wonderful story...it is like ours has begun and i hope it turns out as well...it makes me smile..while DH and i have both been wild in our younger years.,and down and out and flat out looking after ourselves, once we found each other in our 30s we blossomed..hubby had been sleeping on some friends lounge for 2 years when we met,.he had one suitcase of belongings...i was not much better,.now 10 years later, 2 cars, a house, a unit, i have my own business and Dh has worked his way from a trainee to one of the top positions where he is now including foreman...not a brain surgeon but a wonderful achievement in 6 yrs ... today while I am feeling fragile as hubby did insinuate that it would ruin everything I think he is freaking out in his own way about many things including the helplessness of me flapping about from the start. I know he hates it when I am upset and wants to fix fix fix. One thing I have learnt now is I think im going to put him on a need to know basis.,.I was hoping he would get all atitter with me and be my girlfriend but now I realise he aint ready for that.

    Finally today after 2+ weeks the scales moved...exactly 10kg lost...another .5 and I am halfway...it has done wonders for my state of mind ...I dont know why it did a big drop either all the sudden

    Hey erin how far along will you be for that scan? From what I can gather the relaxation doesnt come too easily no matter how far along but I am sure once you reach a milestone each time you will feel a bit better. It is a shame as really I think being pregnant is for sure a time to enjoy to the fullest.

    Butterfly I can see that no matter where you are in your journey you can be just as clueless and waiting. I hope you get a go before christmas. Why I am jumping out of my skin...I am fully expecting to be half insane by the time I start and prob a bfn but I just want to have a go.... its like having some kind of supertasty carrot just out of my reach.

    My mother I can see is going to be my girlfriend rather than my husband being with me every step.., she is dying to come to everything she even wants to come to EPU lol...she is a believer in hypnosis and I guess the power of the brain to affect your body. She has had great results with wesley weight loss and their hypnosis and started researching ivf...I was thinking it as being mumbo jumbo but have started doing some reading and it seems like there maybe a higher success rate. Any of you girls done hypnosis? I think really I have watched too many movies.

    What about acupuncture...it seems more common than I realised.

    Im afraid I have a tendency to believe that I could randomly throw money all over the place and it wont make a diff some pple just never get lucky....she is convincing me though that its not like praying to the fairies.

    Hi everyone, I've been quietly reading and really enjoying the conversation. It's very uplifting to hear your story Octoberbaby, and MrsMac your sounding better and more hopeful. MrsMac it's great you've got your mum, take her with you to the various appointments, I'm sure she'll love being involved. It will make you closer too. My mum came to hold my hand at a couple of my embryo transfers and it was nice to share with her. Regarding acupuncture, I've been having it since the beginning of my ivf journey and still go once a month. It's relaxing and there have been studies to show it has a positive effect. It is another cost but you can claim some on health insurance.
    Butterfly-I hope you can get another fet in before Christmas, it would be lovely to get some Christmas surprises on here.
    Kenta- very sorry to hear af came. At least you have a lovely little frosty waiting for you.
    Chiefsgirls - good luck, hope those are some implantation cramps you are getting.
    Mrs Erin- how are you feeling physically? At least you've had a break from all that testing. I hope next Tuesdays scan goes well.
    Threegoes- excellent egg haul. I hope you get some strong embies.
    Hi Emski, Mrs P, Bertie, MyHeart, Springrain, and Anyone else I've left out.

    MrsMac, I will be 7w1d when I have my scan. Given I started out with such a low beta I'm guessing it was a late implanter and may be measuring a bit behind. I'm prepared for that but just desperately hoping there is a good strong heartbeat.

    I'm sorry to hear how stressed you have been but you sound a bit more positive today?

    Team Panda, I'm not feeling too bad. Sore boobs, pretty tired at times and constipated/gassy. (sorry TMI!). No nausea really, maybe some really mild feelings if I haven't eaten. Its probably the stressing that i am finding the worst. Today my symptoms don't seem to bad and so of course that totally stresses me out too.

    Well FSH has deemed I am ok to proceed with a FET around next Thursday if I want to... Lots of commuting involved with work as I'm 4h away at the moment from FS. Wondering if now is the right time, being only the first cycle after a mc... Plus I have had various college things to get in, and have been feeling stressed. Sneezed a few times today so wondering if I am coming down with the flu. Also possible holiday plans for chrissy... Ugh

    was wanting to ask you girls about your opinions on flying during IVF?

    I guess lots of women fly pg, but IVF is a high risk pregnancy. I guess I'm looking for reassurance that flying is ok after embryo tf.

    if we don't go ahead this cycle my fs would be away dec but we could aim for a medicated FET ... I've got 2 6 day blasts. Transferred 2 last time and got a pregnancy and mc, I suppose I should tf 2 again... But another fs said I might want to only do 1 twice. Could be a moot point though as not all may survive the thaw. Ill have to decide by Sunday I guess.

    bleh.

    Hi Erin I think the symptoms you have still sound like good pregnancy symptoms, I really hope its a great scan.

    Butterfly I understand your concerns and I really am dreading having to make these decisions every step of the way. Myself...nothing ...except no money would stop me doing a transfer if its there on offereven if it might not seem right but we all know what my patience is like. I have no idea about flying during any pregnancy.

    I am much calmer things have settled for now

    Butterfly -there is no right time or wrong time to transfer in my opinion, unless your body is not ready because of other reasons. If he saids your ready, meaning all your levels are baseline and your lining is good ( which is the other big factor) go for it. I'm now of the opinion that if it's going to take, it's going to take. I did so many transfers where I did nothing and nothing took, then my last one I had a very non precious attitude to it and it took. Other factor is that after a d and c your body should be really receptive to an embryo attaching. Just do check that your lining is good to go. Don't worry about flying, because once that embryo is in and it's attached its going to be like any other pregnancy. X

    I flew home on transfer day (went straight from the clinic to the airport to fly home). The FS that did the transfer was fine with that - she said basically nothing you do will affect whether it implants or not. Noone has ever mentioned my pregnancy being high risk because of IVF and I've been flying regularly. Next flights will be over Xmas when I'll be 37 weeks. Qantas lets you fly to 40 weeks provided you have medical clearance.
