    I just did 2 HPTs which had absolutely no second line. Feeling pretty gutted and going back to bed.
    I feel stupid for feeling so positive and thinking ahead so far.
    Blood test is tomorrow. But I'm pretty sure it will be neg now. I am 16 days post trigger which means 14dpo. Do AF will probably come now...

    Thinking of you, MrsMarcs.

    Well ladies I am out of the game for the next couple of months- will do gonal f plus LH in August when my hubby is home. FS was surprised that I will need LH, as blood work never suggested that, but at least I am a little bit closer to the result I am after.

    Take care everyone and look after yourselves. X

    MrsMarcs - So sorry to hear that you got a bfn from your HPT, how did the BT go? Not over until af shows her self. Thoughts with you whatever the outcome.

    S234 - Nice that you are thinking positively hun and thinking about being nearer to a bfp, if the LH is what you need then good news that you have found out now (would love to share some of mine with you as I have way too much, one of my big issues lol!)

    AFM - Well we are having a bit of thinking time at the moment not sure where to head after we found out I didn't ovulate. I rang up my FS to book an appointment to see him to check up on cyst and discuss options, only to be told we are unable to make an appointment as our referral has run out (can't believe we have been seeing him for a year now). So we booked an appoint to see GP, took DH along with me as I knew he would want to discuss how we were going. I love my GP he is amazing and he started to question me about how I felt about the whole situation and if we thought it was maybe time to seek a second opinion rather than moving onto IVF just yet. When we left we got the feeling that he thought we were really wasting our time with current FS so we left with two referrals one for current FS and another for one he said is really good. Unfortunately we can't get into new FS until August so going this week to see current FS this week to check on cyst and see what he suggests and take it from there. have put myself back on the pill to settle my hormones for a while we take some time out to review things.

    Thanks girls. Bt was definitely negative and AF showed up yesterday. Was feeling really terrible about it but starting to feel better today. Start injecting again tomorrow for next cycle. First blood test will be next Friday.

    HeySide - your GP sounds excellent. Its funny the way that doctors give you clues about other doctors. They obviously cant directly critisize them just point you in the direction of someone they like. Its good you can stay with your current FS for the time being and perhaps switch in August. Let us know how your appointment goes

    AFM - I've been on an emotional roller coaster and today is the first day I havent been crying! I ended up doing POAS to see if my cheap tests would pick up false positives from my Pregnyl injections. It was negative. I did one further along and it was negative so I wasnt expecting to be pregnant. I went and saw FS Friday (BT was due Monday) and my period hadnt arrived. I booked that appointment to discuss moving to IVF because noone had told us when we would move on to IVF or when to see the dr again so I guessed and made it towards the end our our 2nd cycle of SIUI 2WW so we could have a "hypothetical" discussion. He said we could move to IVF but because I had also floated the idea of having a break for 3 months he just assumed we would chose that, and told us to come back later to do IVF plan (being the good little patient and pressed for time it didnt occur to me to say "I'm paying $80 to have the talk now - no I dont want to have to take time off work to come again and pay mor emoney". So we sleep on our options and decide we can't wait 3 months and want to jump into IVF this cycle. I call the clinic on CD1 and they tell me that we cant start IVF this cycle because meds start on day 1, FS hasnt written an IVF plan and we'd also need a meeting with the clinic first. I totally fell apart. Because my FS hadnt kept us fully informed etc he delayed my treatment - impacting on my annual leave plans!!! Like fertility treatment isnt bad enough but to then have someone's action make you even less able to make plans really upset me. I cried all day yesterday. I coped with the arrival of my period. But I couldnt cope with my fertility being in the control of someone else who then delays it. When i started to cry on the phone the clinic asked if I wanted to speak to the counsellor. I wanted to say "no - i just want information from you lot so I can make decisions and not be delayed by you!".

    Then I got online and started looking up weight and IVF treatment. I was horried by some of what I read - e.g. in very obese you may need 2 x the amount of treatment to get a pregnancy. Why did my FS tell me to get into treatment and that my weight would be ok? MY BMI is 37!!!

    After a lot of thinking, crying, talking, stressing etc we have decided not to bother with IUI and to start IVF (that way we might get some spare embys for child #2). And at this stage I am thinking we will skip the next 3 cycles in an attempt to drop as much weight as possible (I doubt I would lose more than 6kgs though - but the article I read said a 5% loss can be enough to increase your chances of success, even if you still remain overweight!). So now I am going to look into having a holiday with my hubby in this 3 cycle break, try and lose weight and then get started on IVF and hope to high heavens it doesnt take too long to get us a baby! Now I'm really scared about the impact of my weight! I am aiming to get to BMI of 35 or below. But I really need to get to 30 or below but that would take a year or more!

    I'm feeling really down and now suddenly finding it really hard to be positive and hopeful. I now just feel terrified that my weight could be a big problem.

    @MrsMacs - hang in there. It's awfull hard isnt it? It doesnt help that it coincides with a massive drop in hormones. I find I feel most hormonal just before the perdiod arrives and makes me least able to cope right at the worst time!!!
    @Heyside - good idea to get a 2nd opinion. Especially if you dont have low egg reserve and have more time up your sleeve

    S234 - ow do you feel about waiting? We were told we had to wait 1 month and I think I've chosen now to wait 3 months to enable me to try and lose 5% of my weight and also have a holiday. But the idea of 3 months wait terrifies me.

    Furbabymum- it is hard waiting. I can imagine it's only harder when you feel like the decision has been taken out of your hands a little bit.

    The way I try to look at it is that my two month wait (which in actual fact I think will also be closer to three) before my next IUI will just prepare me even more. I will be more patient, more resilient, stronger. Surely these are great qualities for a mum to have! By the time I start my next cycle, it would have been just over two years trying for me. I can tell you- I am a different person than I was two years ago!! (For all the right reasons, of course!!)

    whatever happens, just remember, each day that goes past- you are one more day closer to getting your BFP.

    (NB: this process is also making me feel as wise as Morgan Freeman- I hope that this post hasn't come across as patronising. I felt absolutely terrible last week, and I decided that the only thing that I have true control in this situation is the way I feel about things!!)

    xx

    MrsMarcs - Sorry to hear you got a definite bfn, great that you are starting to feel more positive as you move forward though. Hope the injections are going well, hope you get some good news on Friday.

    furbabymum - Big hugs hun, sounds like you have been through it over the last few days. It is really annoying when there is miscommunication with treatment, we hang out for so long waiting for every step ahead of us and then because of someone elses stupid mistake we end up missing an appointment date and have to wait yet again. You would have thought being in the fertility business the specialists would have some sort of idea how much time, emotions and effort we put into these cycles and have an understanding of how we feel going through all this. Sorry that you have to wait hun due to someone else's error, I have felt so annoyed with issues very similar to your own throughout our time ttc no.2.Hope the time goes quickly for you and you manage to loose the weight you plan on shifting.

    S234 - love the Morgan Freeman comment lol! Sounding very wise!!! Hope your keeping sane through your wait.

    AFM - Have my appointment on Thursday to check cyst and will attend my free IVF appointment to see what I have ahead and then I might be joining you girls with the wait if I decide to the other specialist in August. At least we can all wait around together.

    Hi ladies! It seems as though a lot of us are back in waiting mode. And a lot are looking at trying IVF. And, while most of you sound a bit down about it, it really is a positive step. Just a little closer to your babies!

    AFM: We went to see our new specialist (with me feeling like I was cheating on the old one the whole time) and they seem fantastic! They are situated in a lovely old-style house as opposed to an office building and everything is very opulent but cosy. DH kept asking if it was too expensive to do IVF through them! Lol!

    New FS seems very nice and helpful and was very understanding of our need to try a donor rather than wait and see if DH's sperm magically returns. We also had our mandatory session with the councillor (legal requirement if using a donor) who was super nice and funny. Had bloods and urine done (on site! Fancy!). Turns out I have a mild iodine deficiency which means I need to use iodised salt in my food...yay deliciousness!

    Anyway, all looking very positive. We have another appointment on the 15th and hopefully we can start after that

    Hi Ladies,


    MrsMarcs - Sorry to hear no second line & AF showed up. Fingers crossed for next cycle.


    S234 - Nice that you are a little bit closer to the result your after.


    Heyside - Oh I had the samething happen my referral ran out and didnt even realized that was actually when I decided to change FS. I hope you can get your cyst sorted out and can decided what to do weather it be to move onto IVF or check out other FS. I will be starting IVF cycle one after this so probably be right around the sametime as you if you decide to start in August. It's so hard to know what to do and you kinda feel like your cheating when you change FS. Good luck with your IVF appointment tomorrow. Seems like there are few ladies here heading down the IVF path.


    Furbabymum - OMG your story sounds scarily similar to mine. I went to have the IVF information talk and told to come back on CD1 to pick up meds as FS was going to be away so I got a call yesterday well AF had turned up and I told FN that we had decided to not do this cycle and wait for next one well her reply was you have to start meds on CD20 so you wouldn't have been able to anyway and you realize that will make egg pick up in August I was like yes that is fine but im so confused coz FS said to start meds on CD1 so whats with FN say CD20. FS is away on holiday till 14 July so will wait till then to find out what the hell. I hear you on having them take away your plans it is horrible you feel like you have no control over everything and why can't they just get the information straight first up. I have been reading the same about IVF and the weight thing that is one of the reason DH and discussed holding off till next cycle as gives us 6 weeks to get rid of some kgs like you said probably doubt it will be anymore than 6kgs but they that is better than nothing. Also read about doing acupuncture treatment too helps looking at starting that this weekend if I can get an appointment. Oh dear you sound like your right were im at at the moment I too feel like my weight is holding me back and don't really feel positive or hopeful it will happen hence why DH and I decided to hold off coz I would like to go into IVF with a postive state of mind. We can be weight loss buddies & keep each other motivated. I joined a Facebook group that is doing and 8 week weight loss challege at least it has been keeping me motivated. Wishing you heaps of luck with everything.


    KarmaJane - Good luck with your new specialist and donor I know what you mean about feeling like your cheating on old one I just changed FS and that is exactly how I felt. How exciting to start soon wishing you all the best and hope you get your BFP.


    AFM - AF showed up today and yesterday FN called to see if I was going to start IVF cycle and come and pick up Synarel but explained we had decided to wait till next cycle and that AF had turned up well she goes thats okay but you couldn't have started anyway as you need to start the Synarel on CD20 well talk about confused as FS said to start on CD1 and he is away on holiday of course just good thing we are holding off till next cycle coz I tell you how upset I would have been. But now im really confused as what to think I just hope FN has it wrong however this doesn't instill very much confidence in me being told two different things. Have about another month or so before starting IVF cycle so working on loosing some weight in the mean time wish me luck ladies.

    How many rounds of injections did everyone do before moving on or thinking about moving on to IVF? My FN said something about only being allowed to do 3 cycles. I am not sure if this is before you have to see the doctor again or if thats all that you can physically do without causing problems.
