Gosh we are all in it at the same time nearly - I'm feeling your nerves from here @Precious40. Hugs, you're nearly there.
@Precious40 good luck! I hope you get a nice big BFP!
@Kelly good luck for you too! My actual boss (gentleman also) has been really good, I work in pharmacy, and it's been the head pharmacist who has blabbed. We have to have time off approved through her, and she blabs everyone's business, not just mine. I had only told a couple of close friends, but now nearly everyone knows and it is so hard. This has been going on for all 3 cycles I've had this year. If I have to do another cycle (fingers crossed I don't) I will be talking directly to my boss about it, as we get on very well.
@Bongley I think I will tonight, so I can take tomorrow off. Might take some of the pressure off. No AF yet, but I never have got it while on progesterone, although I was wondering as my new FS has me on under half the progesterone I have been on for previous cycles. How much progesterone actually stops AF from arriving I wonder??

Good luck precious! Everything crossed for you.
Petal I personally poas because if it isn't the news I want to hear them I want it to be a moment between me and Dh not news that is broken to me for the first time in an office.
No matter what you decide to do it well seem life the slowest day ever but I would probably take the day off. If it is bad news you can time out for a good cry etc and if it is good news you can find a way to treat yourself. Good luck thinking of you both today. Xx

@Petal40 I'm in a similar situation to you too my BT is on Thursday I have POAS and still don't know what the outcome is going to be as ive been bleeding since 6DP5DT and today at 13DP5DT the test this morning the line was fainter so I'm thinking it will be a Chemical or hoping its a dodgy test but not feeling confident bleeding has lessened too but not completely stopped its so confusing but the way I look at it is when I go for my BT on Thursday at 15DP5DT that at least I will be prepared if it turns out to be a negative and won't cry at work. Only reason I decided to POAS was because I started to bleed. I would rather be prepared so I can decide either to take the day off work if its going to be bad news or at least know what to expect I also have the situation of a few people at work knowing too so I know they are waiting to hear the outcome and not sure will be able to deal with it. It's so hard. Good luck with your BT & weather you decided to POAS before or not.
Good luck @Precious40 almost there have my fingers crossed for you for a BFP.
Good luck to you too @Kelly70.
Precious hope it's a BFP. Petal in same boat as you. BT test on Thursday and still haven't poas and still undecided whether I should or not, no AF either. Just started a new role so no one is aware and impossible to take the day off. Good luck for tomorrow. Hoping its a BFP as well..
hope you all don't mind me joining in! Thanks for the invite MGC Bertie.
Good luck to all waiting for BFPs! I can't believe how strong you are to not poas, I cave after five days! I feel the nerves for you petal40, precious40 and kelly70.
I'm in a bit of limbo at moment, just last week had our third missed miscarriage (and d and c). I have been lucky enough to get pregnant three of our last five ICSI cycles which at 43 seems amazing but unfortunately each time the embryo hasn't made it, for different reasons which FS says hasn't told us much. Clearly my age does not help but he classes it as bad luck. We have spoken to him before about (overseas) egg donor but he was keen we continued to try with my eggs. He says all my reactions to IVF are good even if I was young. We have now also talked to him about pre implantation genetic testing which would mean changing to another fertility clinic which I don't really want to do. Again he has advised that he doesn't think this would be beneficial at 43 as I would probably only produce 2-3 blastocysts that could be tested and would not increase the number of live births but obviously could reduce miscarriage risk. He also says they aren't yet sure of what effect the testing may have as is still newish. He advises that I should go on to do another fresh cycle. However the miscarriages are so heart breaking I'm just not sure what we will do. My body clearly knows how to get pregnant, what if all my eggs are stuffed? Well we have a few months before I can consider anything but I just am so confused. Not quite ready to give up the baby dream yet, although both hubbie and me getting there, but each pregnancy has just kept that door open a crack.
thanks for reading, it just helps to get it all off my chest to others who have been there. My friends/ family try to say the right thing but I sometimes feel they think we are nuts to continue this!
Sorry this is so long, I've been lurking around for a while!
Cyd... good luck with your next cycle. Which type of steroids have you been on?
Petal.... as I've mentioned before I like to POAS as then I get to cry and snuggle with DH before going to work. I don't take the day off, as I'd only be moping about, and I've have had too many days off for IVF. By going to work I get to keep busy, but at least I'm prepared.
Tuxcat and Malkitek.... welcome to our over 40s thread. You'll find lots of support and advice here. We you have a few hours (or few days) spare, it's really worth reading back on some of the threads. Otherwise feel free to just ask away, as it's sometimes just easier for us to reply again, then try to search through and find things. One thing we all would recommend, especially as you've both had BFPs before, is to get tested for ANAs and NKCs.
Best thoughts to everyone who has their BTs this week - there's a few of you, so if you're going on odds, then at least some of you should be in the lucky portion, so fingers crossed xx Hopefully I've got it right:
- Precious - waiting with baited breath to hear how it went today - sorry to hear of BFN
- Petal - good luck for tomorrow Wed 3/9 - sorry to also hear of BFN
- Twinkley and Soph - Thurs 4/9
- Kelly - Fri 5/9
