I've put on 4 kilos just reading that.
I've put on 4 kilos just reading that.
fert results are in ... 8/9 which is fine with me. Thumbs down for the progesterone shots... Wondering how I'm going to jab myself in the @ss when DH goes away next week.... This just gets funner and funner
@Bongley when will you test
@mgcbertie how are you feeling ?
O noes! Get DH to take possession of the frer stash!!
Oh my God you girls make me laugh! Gold! The fellas really do get it easy hey
Would love to join you here as I'm about to start my IVF journey and would love any tips advice and support I can get right now.
My first appointment is set for next Tuesday so will know more once Ive been to that but right now im just an emotional mixture of all kinds of feelings. I'm excited, nervous, scared, hopeful but not really at the sametime coz I just can't handle much more disappointment.
Have done 6 rounds of clomid with one IUI and a few months with a nathuropath all BFN's so onto IVF it is.
Im a big chicken when it comes to needles I really can't give myself them thank goodness DH has no problem with it have had to do a few when I did clomid rounds as i had two rounds with trigger shot.
I'm not even sure how the whole IVF process works from what ive read its a serious of injections to ovulate and then EPU and after that transferring the eggs?
Any tips, advice, support most welcomed. What can I expect with the first round? I know with some of the trigger shots I did the side effects were pretty yuk. What kind of side effects have people had doing IVF?
Butterfly....that's excellent on fertilisation - funny, exactly the same as my results (OK same as my sister!!). AFM.... I've been keeping nice and busy - flat out all day at work, followed by fire brigade meeting, so just got home now. Anyhow, I've decided to POAS tomorrow morning, as I really can't wait anymore - if it's BFP then I'll be more than happy (to say the least), if it's a BFN then I've convinced myself that since it's only the first real day to register Hcg, then I'll try not to fret (well, not too much). That's the plan, and as you all know me, I like to have a plan. Twinkley.... hopefully IVF will bring you the success you need. For me I never had too many side effects from all the IVF - tender boobs, various cramps, but my side effects always seemed more mild than many others. Lol, I'm guessing the age in your signature needs updating :-)

Hi girls! You've all had me giggling at your porn stories. DH would be so jealous if I told him that your guys get to have such a fun time (70s bush & all) lol. I swear that not a day goes by that he doesn't mention that he 'got his ball cut open for us'...
MCG, I got my BFP at 12dpo, so that must be 7dp5dt. I tested at 10dpo & got a BFN. Good luck hun, will be keeping everything crossed for you.
Butterfly, those fert results are awesome! Congrats hun.
Bongley, good luck with the testing on sat, will also be crossing everything for you. Try not to go nuts today while you wait for sat to roll around ;-)
Hi Twinkley. Welcome to The IVF roller coaster. It's been three years since I did a stim cycle, but then at least, my body seemed to love the IVF meds, apart from the bloating & a bit of a tender tummy it wasn't too bad.
AFM, I was waiting for Aunt Flo to arrive (she was only 2 days late) & I've officially started jabbing! Eek! This time I'm on 450 of puregon (last time I was on 225). Has anyone else been on this dose? I'm guessing it's been upped because of my age.... Anyway, I'm feeling that mix of trepidation & excitement that comes with IVF. For us, because of DH's zero sperm count, it will (if all goes according to plan) be our 4th chance to get pregnant since we've been together. DH had a lovely dream & we were walking along the beach with DS toddling beside us, pushing a baby in a pram. So hope it's true.
Sending out love to everyone, IVF sucks, but at least we're in it together.
@ertgirl I've only ever been on 125 of puregon, my FS kept my dose the same from two years ago. I see you have PCOS too... well, lets hoping you get some nice big follies (but not too big)
So, yes, I caved and tested! Nothing yet!
Now I have to wait until tomorrow to test again aaarrgh! My partner was laughing at me this morning. I bet if it was men that could get preggers they would have a whole chemistry set of tests and potions and charts!
