    Hi Cheifs,

    Some days are just plain rough I would enjoy a few wines myself and fav takeaway.

    Hide it from your news feed so you don't have to see it. L

    The other week, I got caught saying loudly and rudely at the IVF clinic some people who were having a pregnancy scan. Who were gushing over there 4 IVF child (good for some) "gee I wonder how many kids she would have had if they f@cked up her EPU !!!!! And nearly killed her !!! My DH was beside me and hissed at me to be quite. How sad am I to be angry and have the green eyes monster of the IVF pregnancy people.

    This is road is dam hard and it brings out our most painful of emotions

    I think it is highly insensitive for people sitting in an Ivf waiting room to be gushing over babies etc don't they remember what it was like!!!! It infuriates me. I was sitting there once waiting for my pregnancy bloods when another woman was talking to her friend about how she had a positive test that morning etc etc but really loud.. I nearly cried..

    Thats horrible. I wouldve said something too. Its the same when I hear mums complaining loudly in the same situation. I would do anything to be a mum.

    Whats worse is the ivf people though..... when they have gone through most of the sh! T we have and still have the nerve to either complain or gush in your face. They were there...they should understand!

    Hugs. Id love to slap them all.

    Hi, ladies, i read through the thread but can't write long as I am on the road for work again. You ladies are tough and good to vent it out. I hate those insensitive comments and I have withdrawn from socializing every now and then. My heart ache just to think about it. There are also other things aren't going well in my life at the moment so i am feeling like the end of the world (really).
    Good luck to those who are cycling. I am waiting for another month to book in with Dr. M for the NK cell biopsy. Darn priv insurance waiting period. You ladies are spoilt by the medicare.

    I've been thinking...that more needs to be done in the area of immunology and pre-pregnancy blood screening to try and avoid unnecessary miscarriages. Would love to carry out some research or at least get some off the ground (I am not qualified in medicine though and have only done 1.5 research subjects which are in educational research, not medical). There would have to be ethical clearance, etc. Anyone have any ideas as to how this sort of thing could get off the ground? I can't work on it atm as I am mid-semester, but once my second assignment is in I'd love to start working towards it - perhaps I could do a proposal and submit it to my ob who lectures at uni or give it to the medical research unit in town/at uni.

    Not sure, just thinking.

    Thanks ladies, yesterday was rough but I got through it, no wine or takeaway though as I start jabbing with lucrin today. I did make myself a chicken Caesar salad though (minus croutons) it felt so decadent to have a creamy mayo dressing!

    Have picked up all my ivf drugs, saizen is at home and the pred, doxy, clexane and progesterone arrived in the mail today. A little nervous, a little anxious. Part of me is just worried it's not really immune related and I'm just old!

    Little ted, I'm not really sure how to go about it but what a great idea. If you do speak to your ob (dr b?) about it, he does know about dr m and seemed quite interested when I briefly mentioned the immune treatments I was taking. Would be wonderful if there was someone in newy who knew about immune issues as well as getting it more widely accepted. The only problem I see with research is that proper trials would need to be done with the drugs and testing to check immune system along the way and a lot of the more advanced testing is only done in the us...

    Sorry its taken me a while to respond, Ive been trying to figure out the PM issue - I cant PM you either...upon further reading I think it might be that I have to have a certain number of posts before I can PM? No idea how many, so sorry about that.

    I would love to tell you that all those times there was *one* thing that I kept feeling or having happen that was the same each time and thus I could tell if it was going to fail or not. I couldn't.

    There was no twinge, or pain, or cramping or blood that was consistent with the time of failure. I will say (this may sound crazy) but each time within a day or two I had a major stressor happen. For instance one of the times my Brother in law sued us (unbeknownst to me) and I got 'served' papers - it was that very day they measured later on ultrasound the heart stopped beating. If I had one piece of advise, (at least for myself) its to make sure NOTHING stresses me. No crappy relatives phoning up to cause trouble etc. I wont answer the phone!)

    For mine, it was always the same - a 'missed' miscarriage, which is where the heartbeat stops but everything else stays the same. Until you go in for an ultrasound, you just don't know anything.

    That said, every. single. time. (barring the first when I was blissfully unaware this could happen) I 'felt' like I wasn't going to see a heartbeat at the appointment, I was absolutely sure there was no baby and my thoughts were realised. In retrospect, I think when we are in a situation like this we might subconsciously prepare ourselves, or prepare for the worst? I don't know, I just wonder if my history created that feeling that it would never work out IYKWIM?

    Regardless, I don't think I will ever experience another pregnancy where I wont feel that way until I see the 15-16 week mark. Then Ill be anxiety ridden about premature birth and SGA (Small for gestational age) as my son was born at 28 weeks 715 grams!) Are any of us really ever free from the anxiety? I envy those that can see a positive pregnancy test and just feel excitement, I feel instant panic!

    I did feel pulling and tugging and a little back cramping early in most of my pregnancies but I believe that was due to implantation and really digging in there because all signs pointed to healthy pregnancies each time - great growth and heart rates, nausea and excellent HCG increases... you know the drill. With APA and any other immune issue it is all so silent!

    I will say with your protocol under Dr M you should feel hopeful, I have met with 'experts' and specialists in Colorado, Texas, LA and Sydney and I have never felt as much hope as I feel with this protocol. He specialises in those that are highly specialised patients and that's why Im giving this another go.

    I do hope all goes well for you - Im guessing you're about 11 weeks now? In my experience, 12 weeks is the first 'safe' milestone. I had one miscarriage at 13weeks but I was unmedicated for that - not even aspirin or progesterone. I feel like if you get to 12 with this protocol you have a really great shot at this - I will be crossing everything for you - a win for you is also a win for my potential future!

    I hope this message was *some* help in easing your anxiety. I truly know what it feels like to feel that anxious and Im sending great big hugs!

    Thanks Seaside - big big help so really thanks. Yes I am 11wks today (Downs scan on Thu...) and still wake up every day praying baby is ok and will be ok. My home fetal doppler has been a godsend except for the last 3 weeks i realised we have been listening to my HB and not bubs! Doh! Finally found baby's HB on Saturday i've had some serious cramping but no bleeding so trying to put that down to uterus stretching out etc.

    We are negotiating for a new apt to move to across the border in HK and stress levels are high. I just want it over and done with so i can "relax" as far as that's possible. I've held off doing any baby planning or shopping till we get further along as part of preparing myself for the worse. I really envy the women who can take their pregnancies for granted too and enjoy it.

    To all the other ladies - I hear you. It astounds me how quickly women forget the struggle and heartache. I certainly haven't. Most women i know outside of this board and my sister got a baby on their first IVF cycle so with them I got a lot of...oh well you haven't been trying very long (after 4 failed cycles!). Or at least you haven't had a miscarriage. Then other women who struggled for a bit then got pregnant naturally and then complained about getting fat. I used to think when they said that that it is an absolute privilege and treat getting fat and I still do. Sending everyone big hugs and baby dust xo

    Hi Ladies,

    I am new to this thread. I have been reading posts and am interested in your experiences with immune issues. I did three cycles resulting in two chemicals before the fs tested me for NK cells.

    I was told I had high NK cells and started on prednisolne. That cycle I got pregnant but miscarried. Further cycles were mostly chemicals. I moved to another fs but she does not believe in NK cells affecting results.

    I would like to know more...so many of you have had success after using immune protocol...


    Some of you have mentioned Dr Matthias - do you know if he takes phone conferences?
