    MrsMarcs - I understand your need to see the heartbeat I remember being the same with DD. I am sure that wont be too far away for you hun and then you can start to relax a little and enjoy every moment of what you have worked for.

    ELM - wow where has that time gone??? Great that you have suffered much with morning sickness and everything has gone to plan. Keep us updated nice to hear the good news out of this thread

    Hi @Ladydee I read along last night but can't reply very well from my phone so had to wait till today. I am so sorry about all the heartache you've been through recently. I don't know the 'right' answer, I wish it was all that simple but frustratingly life is supposed to try us I guess. For me, I would actually look at IVF because they do have the ability to check the embryos and pick the best of the bunch hopefully lessoning the chance of m/c. For us, despite falling pregnant on our honeymoon with our first couldn't fall again for the second (since found out pituitary issues) so we were told IVF after nearly 2 years of clomid and generally trying. Unfortunately there is no guarantee with IVF but we trusted the doctor and for our first cycle got 19 eggs, 16 viable and 13 fertilised...BFN and no frosties. Second cycle 24 eggs, 19 viable, 17 fertilished...BFN and no frosties. We then fell pregnant with clomid/trigger...so just because you take that massive step to IVF doesn't mean it will be the answer I guess is my two cents...sorry it's probably not what you wanted to hear but I wanted to share. I know you mention cost, have you considered Springwood (I remember it being a lower cost clinic). I mean its not like you don't know that you and your husband don't work....you've got DD and pregnancies to prove it so surely all you need is the best embryo of the bunch which the scientist would be checking before egg transfer? As far as all other embryos...its such a tough personal decision...

    MrsMarcs, I totally understand the need for the heartbeat...its the most amazing experience! Hopefully once you've heard it (and record it so you can continue to listen to it!!) you'll begin to feel better. When is your dating scan?

    RD15, have you started jabbing?

    How's everyone else going?

    AFM - Back on again...starting on 66 puregon (again) despite knowing that I don't react until 75 but they've said just try until Monday and then push for 75.

    Thanks for thinking of me ladies Today is Day 3 of injections and I'm doing just fine! In a sick kind of way I kind of enjoy it haha! I think because I now finally have a bit of control over the situation. Im on a super low dose of 25 so Im kinda just expecting they will tell me to up my dose when I go for bloods next Monday.

    Ladydee I hope a nice weekend away makes your decision a little easier. I obviously don't have an advice regarding IVF but I will say to trust your gut instinct.... its usually right!!

    Not sure if anyone is in Sydney but Primary Health Care have just opened a Bulk Billing IVF clinic and they will soon be looking at other states as well. I think it's fantastic! Will give so many people the opportunity to have a family that simply cannot afford IVF

    @ELM13 and @MrsMarcs - thank you so much for your experiences and input in to my dilemma, it all helped me a lot and I really really do appreciate it I hope you're both doing well and looking after those little miracles baking away...keep us up to date! xx

    @RD15 - so glad you haven't found the injections too bad, keep us up to date! Goodluck for your bloods on Monday and all the best for that elusive BFP this cycle

    Thanks so much @Buttercup80 for your reply!! Wow, I can't believe out of 19 eggs and then 24 eggs you never got a frostie at all?! That must have been so unbelievable and devastating at the time, I can't even imagine Every single time I mention to anyone my qualms about what to do with any possible left over frozen embryo's , I do have a little voice in the back of my head saying "shush, your going to jinx yourself to not get any frosties and then you'll be all upset about stimming again!". So, you did two IVF cycles then went back to using clomid? I didn't even know that was something a FS would do. You're so right about us just needing the right healthy embryo and even though we're not doing PGD testing, I do believe normal IVF could help us choose out the best looking one. Can I ask, have you ever had a Hysteroscopy?

    Hi Heyside x

    AFM - AF arrived today! So begins my "rest cycle" before I begin jabbing on day two of my next AF .
    So....I *think* I've come up with a plan and haven't changed my mind since agreeing this is what we want to do with my DH so hopefully that's a good sign. I want to get a Hysteroscopy just to make sure that there definitely definitely isn't a secondary problem going on in my uterus leading to miscarriages. Then we are going to go ahead with IVF to hopefully increase our chances of getting a healthy embryo. I prefer the clinic I'm with now and I'd love my current FS to be my Ob again if I should be so lucky to need one again in the not to distant future! So....I'm calling my current FS to book in for an appointment to ask him if he will perform a Hysteroscopy on me before commencing IVF. If he has any qualms about doing one, then I think our second- opinion FS is our specialist that we'll move to our next step with and then I'll have to (hopefully!) find a new Ob as he doesn't do obstetrics. Eeek, hopefully I'm making the right choice!

    I've been seeing that counsellor still and have started my weekly acupuncture again as well as doing daily mindful- living meditations which have all really helped me get rid of a tonne of stress and start to feel like my old happier more positive self! Yay for that!!

    Here's what the free meditation App looks like that my counsellor put me onto if anyone's interested, I highly recommend it......

    Buttercup - Hope the injections are going well hun!

    Ladydee - Glad you are happy with your decision, you sound more confident and definite with thing which is good, try to enjoy this rest cycle before you move on. Good luck with the appointment with your fs to ask about more testing hopefully he will support you with that.

    AFM - Going a little stir crazy with the waiting just want to get started, DH has his SA next week and I also have my ultra sound and then we wait until 21st for our next appointment.

    Hi Ladydee, it was heart wrenching but then so much is on this journey isn't it. It wasn't his call to go back to clomid, he was very much against it...said we should do a 3rd cycle but we just said we weren't able to financially afford it for a couple of months and we might as well do a clomid cycle in the meantime. He sooo wasn't happy with it but by then we had serious doubts about him, the main reason he rushed us to IVF was I apparently had low AMH but we couldn't understand why I would produce so many eggs if that was the case. No I've never had a Hysteroscopy done, what is it?

    Hey RD15, hows the jabbing going? Lol about the enjoyment! It's nice to know that 'something' is going to happen isn't it


    Hey Heyside! Argh the wait! Hope it flys by as much as it can for you

    AFM- Quick question, I'm only up to Day 4 of injections but after pulling my pregnyl 150 needle out tonight blood poured out of my belly ...like dripping onto the floor...thoughts? It hasn't happened before

    Buttercup - a Hysteroscopy is a day procedure where you get a camera inserted up into your uterus to look for abnormalities, I was just going to ask you about it if you had. Good on you for sticking to your guns....and so you were successful with clomid?! Awesome
    You would've hit a tiny vein with your needle Hun. That happened to my dd during one of her vaccinations....blood all down her arm, clothes and my clothes You might get a little bruise there if you didn't put pressure on it straight away but it's harmless.

    Heyside - The waiting sucks doesn't it? Hang in there Hun and before you know it, you'll be enjoying your holiday and then you'll blink and it'll be time to start jabbing!

    Buttercup - Sorry can't help with the bleeding hasn't happened to me but hopefully Ladydee is right and its one of those unfortunate things to happen that wont happen again.

    Thanks for support with my wait, looking forward to getting last few tests done and then after our break I am sure my appointment will be here in no time and in some ways glad to be waiting for a change in action.

    Hi all! I am back with you guys again. I miscarried in June, at 9w5d. I was wondering if anyone sees a naturopath and if this has helped. Having a few months off before we commence OI again. So I thought I would go see someone and see if that makes a difference.

    Hi pjk I did see a fertility naturopath (S h a r k e y's) for 7 months while I was trying for my dd but unfortunately they couldn't get me to ovulate naturally I hadn't been diagnosed with PCOS yet at that stage and they seemed to insist my problem was with my thyroid and then kept trying to treat me for that....even though my bloods said my thyroid was ok (they disagreed). I have heard of other ladies getting results from naturopaths though, including one on here who got her BFP with the help of one so I think it really depends on the fertility problem and the actual naturopath. I have had great success with naturopaths for other medical problems. If you're going to have a break anyway, it couldn't hurt to give them a go maybe?? Hope you've been doing ok Hun xxx
