    Well it's day four of stimming for me and I've had funny nausea today and now got lower pelvic pain and bloating.

    Started the cetrotide this morning, did a bit of googling and it seems to be a newer drug (?), which has to be mixed in a vial before injecting, it was quite complicated especially for my sleep addled brain.

    I have been freezing all day and unable to keep warm but conversely I've been waking up in the middle of each night drenched in sweat... Not sure what that's about... Nurse says so far my levels look fine and to just let them know if I feel really bad.

    I'm in Melbourne tonight, the dreaded work travel, and of course the flight had two extremely loud kids squealing and yelling for the entire flight which made me equal parts cranky and desperate to use the words 'INSIDE VOICES' as well as sad about this whole thing, wondering if I'm even cut out to be a mum if I can't deal with a couple of shouty kids on a plane - IVF seems so ridiculous at times, so much effort to go through...sometimes I feel like I'm just going through the motions because it's either that or watch my fertility slip away. I'd never admit that in real life though because everyone says "oh you must really, really want a baby to go through so much doing IVF" and I'm just not sure how to respond.

    I confided in a friend at work about doing IVF who is just about to start mat leave for her first baby, (conceived by IVF) - she mentioned some kind of treatment used in ICSI whereby once they've got the sperm they add this hormone(?) to the Petrie dish and the better sperm are attracted to it which helps them select the best sperm.

    Anyone know what that is? She couldn't remember the name, but said they used it in their successful round.

    Bleh.

    ScubaGal, you're not alone in cringing at other people's screaming kids! Especially on a plane and in the middle of ivf. I'd say you've got a great chance at being a very patient mum if you can manage to keep it together in that situation! Not sure about your icsi question sorry.

    Sorry having trouble keeping up with all the posts so sorry to lack of personals. Hope you're all going well though.

    Had a 5 day blastocyst transferred today. Hopefully 5th time lucky! Imposing a google ban this time!

    Id rather put up with noisy kids than having to sit next to someone snoring, reaking of alcohol/bad BO/garlic or taking up my elbow space :-) just think hopefully one day soon, you will be that mummy on the plane wishing your kids would be quiet, but realising that they are precious little people with hearts and minds of thier own xxx

    Hurry up AF. :-)

    @ScubaGal ---I think it's called PICSI ... It's were they put the sperm in a special medium to see which ones can move through it better.

    I did discuss that with my FS as well... As DH and I both have our seperate issues... But she wasn't convinced of its usefulness or success rate so it wasn't kept on the table... Instead went with the high calcium medium option instead.

    @ScubaGal

    As irony has it I was in Melbourne for work on Monday. Had two kids next to me on the flight home and thought exactly the same thing. I would have paid anything to sit somewhere else!

    I think once you have your own you'll feel differently.
    We are also so caught up in the process that we probably aren't allowing ourselves to think of the nice fluffy bit the end of the rainbow. Right now we are like Dory from finding nemo.. 'Just keep swimming, just keep swimming! '

    Have a look around your area I actually go to fertility yoga which is meditation visualisation with yoga it's amazing I think that and an Accupunturist that specialises in fertility best money I have spent . Took me 4 years to get here but started yoga 3 months ago and it all changed I too had way to much stress in my life with work . The is great free mediation music on iTunes on iPod cast I do it before I go to sleep
    . Hope all goes well for you and your stress comes down they say it's really important
