    I'm currently 26 weeks thanks to MYivf and couldn't really fault them! Dr C is amazing and all the nurses are lovely. But ivf is never really easy, it's always a waiting game and I think you need to know that going into it, then hopefully you get lucky and it works first go! I am the least patient person in the world so it was hard and I also expected success straight away! After 18 months of TTC naturally after a vasectomy reversal, we started with Myivf. It took 2 egg pick ups, 1 m/c and 4 transfers to finally get our sticky little boy on board. The numbers drop dramatically, we had 6 collected the first time with only 2 making it - first transfer bfn second transfer early miscarriage. Then 18 collected and only 3 making it to freeze - no fresh transfer due to OHSS risk. 1st bfn and second is this sticky little boy on board

    I didn't find there was too much waiting to cycle, you just have to take the pill to fit in with their dates - unless there is medical reasons for waiting like - normally you have to wait a cycle after a Epu for a frozen transfer or a few other things depending on your individual circumstances.

    Sunshine I have a few friends finding success with the famous Wazza but his waiting lists are long, like his vitamins and medication lists lol! And I heard he was semi retiring this year. But it can't hurt to go on his waiting list? I'd definitely give MYIVF a go first, the earlier in the year the better due to the safety net and the way ivf goes you can only squeeze so many cycles in before the safety net starts again.

    Petal great to hear from you! I have had heartburn daily for the past couple weeks also! But MS is all but a distant memory for the most part so can't complain! The time is flying! X
    Hello lovely! Good to hear everything is going well for you. Me too! I'm just over 28 weeks, and apart from bubba being breech (and the heartburn) everything is good. Not too long now!

    Default Thinking I should have waited :(

    So I have my blood test on Wednesday! These past two weeks have been really easy I haven't really thought about it, I've just been working and trying not to focus on it too much. "Out of sight out of mind" approach I think. It seemed to be working until Friday when I was at woolies and I brought a pregnancy test... It was 7 days post transfer, I was going to wait until 14/02 but of course I took it as soon as I got home, it came up a very quick negative I wasn't going to tell my husband as I knew he'd be so upset/angry.. But I did and of course he was so upset. I felt so guilty one for taking it, two for buying it and three for not waiting. Now these past few days have been a killer. I am due for my periods 16/02 and for some reason my mind is telling me I'll be having them and that I won't be pregant. I'm trying to stay positive so if it doesn't work we have two more to try but the other part is telling me it's my fault.. Sorry for the blurt of drama I just need to vent to people who understand, my friends don't, my husband is just a male and doesn't like to talk about it..

    Good luck for your BT tomorrow.
    If it hasn't worked, it's from nothing you've done or haven't done. It took us 7 transfers (and 3 EPUs) to get pregnant. I hope it has worked for you, but if it hasn't, you have 2 more good shots at it. And both my BFPs have been from a frozen transfer - I think personally I respond better when I haven't been on the stimm drugs.
    Vent here all you need. IVF is hard, and even though hubby goes through it with you, it's different for them. Please don't blame yourself for anything though. Remember IVF is still a numbers game, a few lucky ones get pregnant first time, but most don't. Chin up. If it doesn't work, have a cry (I sure did), and do something nice for yourself. Even if it's a nice dinner & some wine. Or a bath & some ice cream. Don't be too hard on yourself x

    Henzell so sorry to hear you're having a tough time. The TWW is torture and we all go a little crazy. Very wise words from petal. Wish you all the best for your BT today but if it's not to be this time you still have those beautiful possibilities in the freezer. Be kind to yourself xoxo

    Thank you so much! Reading that has made me so much happier, both of you ladies STILLHOPEFUL and PETAL40 your kind words are exactly what I needed to hear the day before and day of blood test. I am 20mins out from the test and feeling optimistic. And yes thankfully I have two more beautiful embryos awaiting ☺️ I don't think I really could thank you ladies enough, I remember reading this forum when we were told IVF was for us, back in November I went straight to google. But at that point I was too afraid to write, ask question, say how I was feeling. But now I couldn't of had it any other way! I can't wait to let you all know my results this afternoon. Xxx

    Awesome news!! So happy for you. Levels can be different for each woman. They really just want to see your number double every 48-72 hours. Hopefully you get a good increase on Friday
    So happy for you!!
    Here's a link that will help you Friday when you get your levels. It also shows you the big difference in levels that are ok for how far along you are.
    Well done

    Default That's awesome henzell

    That's fantastic news Henzell! So exciting! Good luck with your next test. ..

    I am in the 2ww and 8dpo from ttc naturally and have noticed daily white milky cervical mucous (sorry if tmi) since I ovulated, which is really unusual for me. ..did anyone get this as an early pregnancy sign? Apparently it's really common and can be a sign of increased progesterone...

    Thank you! Means a lot, second blood test is tomorrow morning. Are you on crinone? I am and I find that comes out when I wipe or in the shower it looks quiet clumpy and tissue like consistency. Apparently that's left over crinone gel ☺️ My symptoms have been unbelievably sore and swollen breast, going to the toilet alllll the time and major heart burn 😣
