    Congratulations Plimpy and Jennilee. It's so inspiring for us all to hear of the safe arrival of these precious little ones. Enjoy this miraculous time.

    Angelmama congratulations. I look forward to hearing of strong HCG levels when you have your blood test.

    To the girls heading over this week I hope you have a wonderful trip and bring back some positive results.

    i also went through Pathways to Parenthood so feel free to PM me if you have questions. I believe they only use EDSA. I had a great experience with them and EDSA.

    I don't post very often these days but I do read along and contribute when I can. I am now almost 17 weeks and both babies are doing well. Getting quite big now but looking forward to our scan in 2 weeks for some reassurance.

    Wow Rainbow! Lucky you have so many watching and taking care if you at the moment..

    Abundance : happy to hear your update and that everything is progressing well

    Em & January : hoping everything is tracking along nicely for you girls and that any meds are treating you kind

    Angel: when do you do BT to confirm?

    :Wave: hi to everyone else lurking or otherwise.

    AFM : meds have well and truly kicked in with the usual headaches, nausea etc but trying to balance that with the excitement of travelling next week , organising all the last minute things like currency, packing etc.
    I'm certain the next week won't be a very productive one from works perspective but I figure I'm due some leeway.... if not I'll blame it on the meds

    Thank you all for your messages of support. I'm back home now and feeling really great. I don't have Pancreatitus turns out that my stomach just had a very hard time processing foods again following my severe bouts of vomiting and dehydration. They ran every test under the sun on me and bub, and very pleased to report that we are both doing well. My energy levels have returned and I feel "normal" again.

    Lily - I'm so sorry to read your news. The IVF journey is a really hard one, not only physically, but also emotionally on both parties. I have to say that when we started IVF treatment over a year ago, I thought the hard bit was going to be having to give myself a needle every day.... well, I could stick a needle wherever I need to now and not give a damn, but boy oh boy that emotional roller coaster was very tough. I'm a very big believer in things happening to us for a reason. I sincerely hope that you and your hubby can find a way through this and that both of you are stronger for it at the end of the day? Infertility is so very cruel on so many different levels. I hope that you have a good support network of family and friends who will be there for you during this difficult time.

    Angel... how are things going with you? When do you do that blood test to confirm your pregnancy levels, you might have two on board in there?!

    Emski, Blinky & January - how are you tracking with those meds? How very exciting that you have officially embarked on your journeys. I have all my fingers and toes crossed for you ladies. Drink heaps of water to help with those hideous headaches. I had THE WORST headache I have ever had on my Lucrin injections, not sure if you remember but I had to go to my GP for an injection of morphine to knock me out it was so very bad. Just keep getting that H2O into you and you should be right.

    Take care everybody... my apologies if I have missed anybody, this thread is very hard to keep up with at the moment with so much going on.

    Rb xx

    Hi Rainbow,

    glad to hear you're feeling better and things are back on track and that everything is ok with bub.

    Yes I've had one of those hideous Synarel migraines overnight (the first thankfully for this cycle) I'm prone to migraines anyway so have medication for them which seems to have just kicked in now. Nothing worse than waking up feeling like that and knowing you have to take more Synarel, inject some clexane and down some estrogen. I topped it off with a coffee in the hopes the caffeine would help the migraine which seems to have worked. I'm going to work from home today and see how I go.

    Angel - have you gone for a beta yet? Let us know how you get on
    Counting down the days now... and getting work organised for when I'm gone... although I find if you tell people you're going somewhere they send you stuff they normally wouldn't even think about...so I might just skulk off and let my out of office handle it all

    Em x

    Thanks for the congrats guys. I got for my beta tomorrow. I actually think it should be today but CFC told me 10 days after a 5 day transfer when I queried it. If I hadn't had the positives in the POAS (I have now done 4 very sad of me) I would have gone today and thought stuff them. But it actually works in better tomorrow because I am not working. I always hate the rush to be at the blood collection before 8 and then to get home and take my daughter to school and work.

    I am feeling anxious about the follow up blood tests that you need to have. I am not sure after tomorrows I want to keep having them and the stress of worry if the levels are doubling. After 2 miscarriages I think the anxiety I felt with the levels was just too much.

    Not long for you Em, excited, I never had the migraines in synarel but really sore boobs? and glad to hear your feeling better Rainbow. Lily I was sorry to hear your news as well, it is a very stressful time, you must be disappointed xx

    Emski - aw those headaches are terrible. Lots of water and also definitely not the time to forget your morning coffee if you are as addicted as I am. It was/is my one coffee of the day, but if I miss it that headache will also crop up.

    Angel - good luck for tomorrow. All your feelings are perfectly natural. I felt exactly the same way. You almost don't want to believe it can/has happened... but as my IVF Clinic in Australia told me after my positive tests... now is the time to just believe, as you have a lovely young egg on board so let youth and the man upstairs work their magic on you. I hate to break it to you but even when you get past the follow up blood test, there will always be other milestones you have to jump to... unfortunately most of us can never just kick back and "enjoy" a pregnancy we worked so unbelievably hard to achieve. I'm 31 weeks now and living proof of that after my scare over the past week. Have you got the support of a good clinic here in Australia and then an Obstetrician for them to hand you over to? Good care is probably the very best thing you can do for yourself at this point to safeguard against any complications should they arise.

    Rainbow - so glad to hear you are back at home and feeling "normal" again. I bet you're very relieved.

    Good luck tomorrow Angel

    Gosh I don't know what to say about those awful headaches.. it was one of the reasons I was hesitant about using the spray. They say headaches are 90%+ lack of water, so I agree with Rainbow, drink up

    Ooooh not long now for you girls about to leave - how exciting. Its a great place to visit - enjoy and Good luck xo

    I have an awesome specialist who is always there when I need him. I feel a connection to him as he knows the pain of losing a child, so he understands the emotions.

    Unfortunately he no longer delivers so I will go to one of his colleagues as she did a transfer once when he was away and I liked her and she is quite reasonably priced compared to some obstetricians. I have made a tentative booking with her but they want me to have the scan first to confirm dates.

    I do feel a bit more relaxed than with my own cycles and a little reassured because I am having evening sickness (think this baby is still on Cape Town time) and I am exhausted. But I won't complain because I am lucky to get this far.
