GL for EPU Monday @Amiracleforme - here's hoping you get lots of embies to freeze and you can enjoy your mini break in Byron
cautiously optimistic today... just heard 8 fertilized! makes the crinone a little more bearable
Hello to all the newbies! I'll b back later for more personals
@amiracle4me I haven't heard anything about the payment yet, i will have a appointment with the clinic in Saturday morning I guess they will discuss with me about this.
We are in very similar situation, I do have PCOS TTC since June 2012, started my 1st IVF journey with PIVET in March 2013, 7 eggs retrieved, made 2 embryos no OHSS developed, day 3 embryo transferred, BT positive but heart beat stopped at week 8 FET cycle Sep 2013 no luck! Not happy with the clinic moved to Fertility North with Dr. Jay Natawala, April 2014 laparoscopy, left fallopian tube removed. July ICSI cycle, on Gonal-F 100 n cetrotide 250, 15 eggs collected 5 fertilized but OHSS developed. So this is my journey so far, don't know what to say, just hope one day our dream will come true!

Thank you @ScubaGal and @GeorgieNE
After reading your comments I googled ‘crinone cramping’ and 1000s of hits came up, so I’m feeling reassured. Apparently it is really common?! Anyway, the pain has settled a lot this afternoon so I’ll just see how I go. Golly this process is put us through the ringer, doesn’t it? So many things that could be something bad – or totally normal, or anything in between. It’s enough to drive you spare!
@loulabubble and @mamaharriet Yay - great numbers for both of you!
@Amiracleforme and @bruyu Sorry to hear about the OHSS, it sounds like an awful thing to go through. Crossing fingers for super lucky frosties for you both.
Welcome to all the new ladies and wishing you quick and easy journeys. The wonderful people here have been such a great comfort to me – it’s a very supportive place
Welcome newbies! Wishing you all the best!
Who's having BT's next? I think we've got a couple coming up in the next couple of days don't we?

One of ladies I supervise at work came to me today to tell me she's pregnant. I handled it well at the time (I'd been suspicious for a while), but driving home I nearly had a car accident (my fault) and once I got home I completely fell to pieces. There is now officially no one I know who is in a relationship and doesn't at least have a bub on the way.
I caught up with my best girlfriends on the weekend, I felt completely 'left behind by life' as they all chatted about their toddlers the whole breakfast. They didn't mean it, that is their life now so I guess I need to find a way to not let it get me down. DH did his best to pick me up after my 'meltdôwn' this afternoon, but I'm thinking seriously of going to a counsellor. I'm wondering if anyone has been to one a did it help?

GeorgieNE sorry to hear you've had a rough day. It is really hard when everyone is having babies around you especially if its so easy for them to conceive.
I'm a big believer in counselling to help you download some of the things you are feeling and just work through them - I've seen counsellors in the past for generalised anxiety and since starting IVF I've had two sessions with a counsellor my clinic provides who specialises in working with people dealing with fertility issues (and I'm booked in again tomorrow).
I think it really does help and I'd recommend it. A point to remember is it can sometimes take a few goes to find someone you click with - like all services some counsellors are better than others so ask around for someone in your area who specialises in this stuff (your FS might know) and test run them - remembering you can always switch.
Good luck with it. I think it makes a big difference.
