    KayzB, our clinic offers counselling but we don't have to do it. I've often thought about booking an appt but never have as we both get so busy with work. How do you find it? I imagine it would be good to get out everyone's thoughts & feelings about it all

    Rara, we had the option of doing IUI first. From all the problems I have (pcos & endo) I wanted to go with the option that would give us the greatest chance, even though IVF is still only 40% chance of working...I also added each IUI up & realised over 6 months it would be the same price of an IVF cycle....I just had a gut feeling we would need IVF. Good luck with whatever you choose & I hope it works for you !!

    Good luck OIC, I hope the IUI has worked & you get a nice surprise BFP

    Hi to everyone else! I'm so sorry to anyone I've missed, I can't see to far back on here. How is everyone going? I'm only CD3 & still on the pill so they can control where they need me to be in my cycle.

    It is so nice to be able to chat (even if it is online) to people who are going through similar fertility issues. It has really made me stop thinking that me and DH (thanks for that! - although the darling part I'm not convinced on...!) are the only ones going through this. I've stopped the self pity after I've read what others have already gone through and are gearing up to go through again. I don't start the IVF process until next weekend so I'm heading to a concert this weekend and going to enjoy a few wines and relax before it all gets a bit crazy!

    Thanks so much :-)

    My private health cover is still in the stand down period til mid July so may as well start with the iui and then proceed to ivf. Of course all this may change after our meeting tomorrow which just cannot come fast enough! Haha!

    Totally agree. No more pity party here either. None of my friends have had to go through this and a fair few of them have even been lucky enough to have honeymoon babies but our turn will come :-)

    KayzB - It is so right, they have it so easy! Even when we were going through preliminary testing, DH was whinging because he had to get an ultrasound, and I was pointing out at least it didn't hurt like hell (like the hycosy)!
    I think ill write a little bit at the weekend, the after the nurses orientation, then while i am jabbing! Definitely not going to write in it everyday, unless i want to, i don't want it to feel like a chore! Just thought as well, if we are successful with IVF at some stage, how nice would it be to have a pregnancy journal as well? I can dream
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY for this weekend! sounds like you will be keeping busy anyway! I am just going to do stuff around the house, few day trips locally, nothing too exciting!
    I am in Sydney, no counselling requirement here! Did i read you need a police check in Victoria?

    Rara1982 Totally depends on your issues i think! No experience, we were told to go straight to ICSI. Have a chat with your FS

    Kate124 - Yea i think thats the down reg cycle, the longer one. I haven't heard about ICSI being more risky with regards to birth defects, not sure about that! What other worries did you have about ICSI? Yes i hope May is everyones month
    And yea it is nice to have buddies going through this to talk to! Can you imagine doing this without google? Lol maybe we would be better off

    OIC - I hope you are proved wrong and you get a good result with your BT!

    Rocky27 - How long are you on the pill for? Hope you are traveling ok

    Hi to everyone else xxxx

    @Rara1982 - I definitely found this forum at the right time! I was the most pitiful person around! Good luck for your appointment tomorrow, I hope you get some answers.
    @missalissa1984 - You are very good at responding to everyone! I'm getting there! Down reg cycle - I shall Google this!!! I want the short one - does that mean less jabs?! When do you start the injections? I got them out of the fridge yesterday and eyed them off on the bench. This was me -->I guess my other concerns for ICIS are: 1. How do they choose the most suitable sperm? 2. Will I need to take days off after they put the fertilised egg in to rest - if you guys lie and say yes that will be great! I can finish Breaking Bad! 3. My boobs post-ovulation are a nightmare now without hormone intervention - what are they going to do!!! Anyway, I know you are a newbie to this too. Trying not to Google as much these days!!

    Just forced myself to look at 'the plan' after I did some Google research on 'down reg cycle' and it says I am doing a 'Flare Stim' cycle. I'll start Synarel on Day2, Gonal-f (150 units) on Day3, and then from then on I don't really understand the timeline! More questions for the FN next week!

    Kate124 - Lol i don't think i get less jabs unfortunately! I just don't need that nasal spray stuff. I think down reg is 6 weeks and antagonist is 4? But don't hold me to that! I am on CD2 of this cycle, and i start injections CD2 of the next one i think, which works out about 7th of May. I have to book my nurses orientation to pick up all the drugs and find out exactly what i am doing a week before AF is due. I will know more exact dates when i ovulate, as my luteal phase is always the same! Looking forward to getting started
    Apparently you are able to go to work etc after the embryo transfer, just obvious stuff like no ridiculous exercise or booze benders but i think for this first one, i am going to take a couple of days off to relax. Haha relax, like that will happen!I'd probably be better off at work, ill be going mental!
    I dont know what a flare stim is! Its like a different language this IVF malarkey! And i am not sure how they pick the best sperm, all i know is science is awesome
    I am soooo not looking forward to injecting myself! Ahhhh xxxx

    @OIC thanks hun! oh & don't you worry, I'll have some extra wine on your behalf to make up for the ones you missed
    I hope your spotting/cramps are due to implantation rather than AF hun. Have got my fingers & toes crossed for you today. Hope BT brings wonderful news, let us know how you go xx

    @Rocky27 I had to do counselling at my previous clinic which was a bit meh, the counsellor was one of those airy fairy types all over the place, rambled on but didn't really say much at all.
    But Wednesday's counselling at the new clinic - wow. She was soo lovely & so informative even though we've already been through the process already. She was really supportive, didn't beat around the bush, but wasn't harsh. Really understanding & explained so much. She was so in tune with the whole process too re meds, injections, scans etc - rather than just doing the whole "so how ru feeling" type of counselling.

    And the service is free so anytime we want we can book in to see her or call for a phone chat.
    So I'm already impressed with the new clinic and can't wait for my appointment with new FS! xx

    @Rara1982 good luck with your appointment today hun! Hope it goes well xx

    @missalissa1987 thanks for the wishes hun! And don't worry that dream of having a pregnancy journal will turn into reality soon enough!

    Yep here in Vic you have to do a police check including child protection order check. It's a new law they introduced a few years ago. Are there no legal requirements like that in NSW? xx

    @kate124 the transfer is a bit uncomfortable i.e when they shove the catheter up there! They recommend lying down for half an hour after it. I guess you can go back to work after it, but I never have. That's due more due to an emotional/mental reason as opposed to pain etc - for me after having my lil embie/s put in me, the last thing I'd want to do is go back to work (let alone be able to concentrate!). My transfers have always been in the arvo so I just do half day at work, go to transfer, then chill out on the couch after

    It's the same with EPU - I've heard of so many people going back to work the next day, but I've always been in so much pain/discomfort that I've had to take at least a week off to recover. But everyone's body reacts differently xx

    After hours of insomnia last night, I finally fell asleep and dreamt that we found out we were pregnant this morning and didn't have to attend the appointment. How disappointing to wake up and find that it wasn't true!

    (Almost as disappointing as the time I woke up dreaming I was chewing lollies only to discover it was very own earplug in my mouth - ugh! Hahaha)
