    Thanks Mrs Hopeful and ELM xx

    That's right Aussiecarla- I have a cupboard full of HPT's but I was that oblivious that at no time did I even think to test! I have a few times since though, you can be rest assured! I was sure they had called the wrong patient and I had to prove it myself! I have been drinking, eating sushi, pre-made salads and feta and painting my toenails! Thankfully I've only had one glass of wine here and there but if I had've even slightly suspected anything, I would definitely not have had even a sip! Good luck for some happy news from yourself very soon

    Thanks Heyside- I really really hope you get your miracle very very soon too and I'll be the first one here congratulating and celebrating with you xxxx

    I'm at a loss as to how in the world my body managed to O on my own let alone how we conceived without any help! I really think my miscarriage had to have done something to my hormones to let it all happen. We started trying on our own Jan 2013 before starting back with my FS in July so that was 7 months of DTD nearly every second or third day as we never knew when I was O'ing as my cycles were so all over the place with my PCOS and those OPK's never worked for me....probably as I was just NOT O'ing at all....and nothing! We were not NOT trying for 3 months and then very much actually trying for 10 months on our own before stating with my FS and treatment when we were trying for my DD and....nothing!!! I was then on Clomid for 6 months without O'ing at all....then we moved onto the FSH injections with IUI.
    As you ladies who've been on this thread for a while know, my body is even too stubborn to O when I'm pumping it full of FSH! Urgh, I just really still can't comprehend how this could possibly happen, neither can my DH. I'm starting to get really anxious about my next results as I've never wanted anything so much in my entire life....I think I might ask for the nurses to phone my DH with the results as I just can't sand the thought of any bad news and I guess he can filter it a bit or something......oh, I don't know. I know I'm just being silly but, I'm just so happy and terrified at the same time. I'm very thankful that I'm even in this situation in the first place though

    Wwwooooooo Laydee!!!!! That's awesome such high numbers!!.

    Heyside- good luck hope fir a sticky one for u.

    Afm- I went the clinic yesterday just told them I dunno how but I got a positive test. My Hcg came back 370. I'm feeling a little disheartened seeing all Ur high number. Hopefully when I go back Tue it's gone up significantly. My Hcg didn't rise last time so here's hoping. Don't know if I could handle a second mc in a row . Maybe I'm just still really early

    Mrs Pump- I feel the same way....that I just couldn't bear to get any bad news this time around, I think I'd go a little nuts. Though I completely understand your fears, please don't loose hope as I think I just O'd and conceived earlier than you. Just incase anyone didn't quite hate me, I'll admit we only DTD once around that time so I know we conceived on the 7th/8th of Jan.....I don't think your hubby was back until a week or more later was he?? I think you'll find that you're a week or even two behind me and hCG is supposed to double every 2nd or 3rd day in early pregnancy......good sticky luck to the both of us! xx

    Congrats Ladydee! How lucky are you!?! As for how you could have gotten pregnant, I read somewhere that a woman is extremely fertile after a chemical pregnancy or early miscarriage; one of the girls I work with fell with her bubba right after a 6-7 week miscarriage. Must be the high levels of hormones in your blood already? Helps it stick? Plus not being worried about it probably helped.

    I just wish I could get pregnant in the first place. Just to know I can. And then worry about keeping it after that. It'd at least feel like a step up...sorry to be a bummer

    Aww Karmajane, I absolutely completely understand how you feel on that point as that was e x a c t l y how I used to feel before I was blessed with my dd. I remember thinking several times over the years that a mc would be better than negative negative negative e v e r y single month after month after bloody month! Now that I've actually experienced the heartbreak of one, I most definitely take it back and more so BUT I can absolutely empathise with the desperate feeling of just wanting to be assured that my body could actually do it in the first place! Huge hugs to you xoxoxo Do you mind me asking why you guys need IVF/ICSI?? Is it male infertility or are you battling with issues of your own also? Has your FS got your husband on meds/supplements to try and help with things? Have you ever considered changing FS's if you've been with this one with no success for a long time? I've met lots of ladies through my work and through Bub Hub who found that a new set of eyes and ideas ended up being exactly what they needed to slightly tweak things to get their elusive miracle BFP.....just a thought as that was what was next on the cards for us if my IVF cycle went badly. Each city seems to have that ONE IVF Specialist who is at the top of their field and we had sussed out the one in our area that I wanted to try. I truly hope you get a very much deserved BFP miracle this cycle xxx

    Ladydee: We have male factor infertility although I don't seem to respond to the fertility drugs as well as a woman my age "should" apparently (still adequate, just not as much as expected). Hubby is on a supplement that I put him on as well as some meds the FS put him on to boost his testosterone. We've actually just started with our current FS as our old one was costing too much and not getting results.

    I'm not saying I want a miscarriage, as I'm sure you know, but I'd just like to know that I'm functional as far as conception goes. Although I get a strange feeling that my FET with old FS took ever so briefly as my entire menstral cycle changed from horridly irregular to almost like clockwork after that. Plus my period after that transfer was a monster.

    I don't know. The most frustrating part is having people who have no idea what this whole thing is like telling you to just relax and it'll happen! That's why these forums are so important. I can take encouragement from you ladies because you know how hard it is and you know from experience that it can happen if we keep trying.

    Karmajane - hmmm, your last FET does sound suspicious when you list the changes you experienced huh With your hubby's up coming op and the new FS and drugs/supplements, it sounds like you guys are making lots of really positive changes......just chuck in a healthy dose of lady-luck and I really think you're super close to some positive news. I'm not sure if you believe it right now but I'll believe it for you I'm not sure how long your DH has been on his new regime but I'm sure your FC have explained to you as mine did to me that the sperm our fellas produce were actually made 3 months ago so maybe that's why you didn't see any positive changes quite yet with the last sample? Urgh, I'm hearing you on the "just relax" comments....useless and shows just how perfectly fertile and clueless the person who said it is!

    Not really anything to do with injections or fertility but I thought I'd share a little breakthrough that I had today.

    I play roller derby. So naturally in a sport full of women there are pregnancies and babies happening at intervals and, since our particular league is VERY close knit, the mummas don't disappear just because they're having a baby. One girl in particular announced her pregnancy right when our FET failed last year. For some reason I had a really hard time being around this girl while she was pregnant and avoided her where possible.

    Today she came to training with her little bub, Emma. And for some reason I felt fine. We chatted. I still felt fine. I played with baby Emma and got the most lovely smiles and coos from her. And I still felt fine.

    I know it doesn't sound like much but the fact that I felt perfectly happy to sit with this girl and play with her baby feels like a massive step to me. My heart didn't break like it usually does. In fact DH was the one who got a little teary watching me!

    Maybe I'm growing up a bit about the whole thing?

    Laydee- your probably right as the earliest I could of conceived was on the 21st Jan. I'm happy to think that it was on the 22nd as that was ny birthday :-)

    Karma Jane- the relax comments suck. My mum still makes them as she doesn't understand or want to understand what a going on. And then she got all upset that I didn't tell her I was preg last time until she asked me what my problem was on boxing day and I just blerted out that I was having a miscarriage. I still Havnt told her about this time but that's prolly coz I'm more scared then anything.
