Kellyk77 - my hat goes off to you lady for deciding to take this trip down IVF lane all on your own! Go sister!!
I really do agree with you, we women are on our own solo journey and only other IVFers would/can understand the toll it takes on us. Kellyk77 you are so lucky to have a friend who has travelled this road - all of my friends have had their kids a la natural - so they cannot understand what we go through (even though the darlings try). The tears we cry, the wondering & the waiting...
You certainly have a brave heart with all you have been through and if your decision to go to DE feels right - why not give it a red hot go? How are you tracking otherwise?

ertgirl - so thrilled for your four juicy follicles!! Im sure you had a positive blood test and are growing, growin!!! I know I may be a few days behind as Ive been bit busy but still hope for you that a trip to EPU is emminent
I saw further down the thread you had a teary because you felt a failure with only four follies - and it sounds like DH had just the right medicine for that, what a good man! Im sure another is on his/her way to you.
My sister has 2 girls, she went solo.. Ivf also, she loves her girls so much.
Biscotti I'm good thanks for asking. We are cycling again in about 6 weeks. I need to finish this job and go to my sisters house as next cycle will be pretty intense and I can't do it on my own with a 3 yo. Hubby is FIFO so after I finish up work here I will be going home
I've got some gaps to fill, since it was last week when I saw my FS.
I decided to take a bit of a break from all things IVF because I was becoming consumed by babies, pregnancy and feeling my stress levels rise.
So last Thursday there I was almost resigned to hearing my FS say there was nothing they could to help me due to low response, age etc.....HOLD THOSE HORSES!! Not at all.
We had a brief discussion about my response to the drugs (BTW, AMH IS 3.9)and it was revealed that the first time is really about seeing how I respond (sometimes they miraculously get it right but everyone is different..)
Soooo... back on a more aggressive protocol (Gonalf & sniffers) and that will start in approx 11 days (according to Period Tracker App). I have every confidence my FS knows what he is on about and knows a good recipe for babies!
In the meanwhile, I shall start acupuncture this week and I am chillaxing , enjoying stinging nettle soup and other green baby-making foods.
The swelling from the last cycle has disappeared, the only reminder of it is one little bruise.
ONWARDS LADIES!! Feeling good and sharing the love xx
