Hi Sparkle, and bel, and anyone else I've missed - welcome to this lovely caring thread.
francesthecat I'm sorry you've had to go through so much surgery. I'm amazed you're going to heal well enough to cycle in Jan; much strength to you, lady!
Sparkle, I love your focus on the positive. You've encouraged me to try for my goal weight while we wait too.
Wishnhope, did you get the results back yet? I've just realised that you lost your sprog at the same growth as I did mine (9 weeks) and my heart goes out to you.
Its actually funny you mention this, I went to see a psychic this morning and she mentioned two doctors. The first she mentioned was a male, very straight down the line (my FS) and a female who is kind and who will put my mind at ease (my GP) so I have great expectation for Thursday to remove some of my guilt towards the loss of our Sprog.
She also mentioned that Feb would be the beginning of our next journey (coinsides with my FET) and that June is a significant month for us. She sees two boys in my future and they'll be close in age (or possibly twins).
Hoping she was right but sucks June is so far away!!
I hope you don't mind if I join you? I got a BFN on Friday after my third cycle this year. I have one little boy that's nearly 2 which makes us very lucky I know but we would love to give him a little brother or sister. We have lost multiple babies at different stages with the last one being a baby with a chromosome issue at 10 weeks. After this last loss my FS finally did some testing and found out I have a blood clotting gene issue so I'm off to see a hematologist tomorrow.
We will be doing a stim cycle this month but will probably go on to do Chromosone testing so won't transfer until Jan.
You ladies are so inspiring and reading through the posts it makes me realise how lucky I am to have one son. He really is our little miracle.
It does mean that I know it can happen though and I hope that helps some of you. He was the result of an FET after losing twins at 18 weeks a couple of months before.
Sorry for the me post and the novel!
Welcome Cappy, I remember you from a few cycling threads and Im sorry you are here after your loss.
Im so glad you got some more testing and now have some more "ammo" in this battle and will get that sibling for your DS.
wishing you in the months to come and that your second rainbow baby is just around the corner.
Thanks Wish I remember you too. I'm sorry that we are both here. Best if luck to you too. Sounds like you've been on a hell if a journey
Thanks for all the warm welcomes
This weekend has been tough, it just plain sucks that so many people who don't want children or are bad parents get pregnant at the drop of a hat, yet those who really want them and would make amazing parents struggle so much. I swear every 2nd person we passed in the shops was pregnant. I actually feel worse being at work and not with DH, he is my rock and is so supportive
hope you don't mind me joining this thread.
Had my first blood test yesterday for this cycle. But also found out today we won't having the egg pickup until January. So a long few weeks ahead of us, but on the upside DH and I are exercising everyday and eating healthy. Plus I am finally managing to drink at least two litres of water a day. As have been told my chances of developing OHSS is higher now we are on the synarel. So I am looking at it as more time to lose weight and be healthy.
Well just had my phone call from Repromed and I start the nasal spray tomorrow, have another blood test on the 29th of November. Then start injections soon after. So all on track for the moment. Just hope I don't have to many side effects from the nasal spray.
this year has been terrible for us, with three deaths in the family, and all the round around from our first clinic, who didn't realise that I had Adenomyosis, so we used up 5 of our frozen embryos feel like they were wasted. All the time, heart ache and money we have used this year was for no reason. Just glad we are now on the right road. Now we just have to hope that DH has some sperm when we get to the end of our cycle.
i do feel lucky we have a DD, so I know miracles work as she was a result of our fourth ICSI cycle in 2010. We had given up hope, I didn't have the support from a group like this, which I have found to be so helpful with being able to talk to people who understand what I'm going through.
sorry for the long post

Sparkle I hope you are doing better, the universe is incredibly cruel and unfair. Im glad you have the supportive DH they truly do make the world of difference.
Nicole77 Welcome!! sounds like you're another who has had a horrible year. Maybe we should rename this thread "2013 sucked" and Im reminded of the saying "its darkest before the dawn" 2014 will be our year!!
AFM tomrw we get Sprogs results, (got the appt moved for those who were playing along at home and went Huh? It was Thursday?) I know they'll be inconclusive but its better than never knowing
A big hello and welcome to the newbies.
Sorry I've seen you on some previous threads.
Good luck for results Wish xx
I'm still in hospital I am so annoyed. I had appt booked with different FS booked for next week. I'm probably going to have cancel them grrrr.
I got a massive infection and also an infected hematoma which might require more surgery. And what makes it then worse I might miss my trip to Honoloulou at 12 December . 2013 is the worse year ever
