    Hi ladies ,

    Jumping on for some support as I’m planning a natural FET for 2nd week in July.

    I am 36, have graves disease, some funky mutated gene, and am also an anti-cardiolipin antibody carrier, all of which provide a couple of hurdles. My DP has an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) - old school they call it Asperger’s - so she has trouble empathising and providing emotional support sometimes. I’m hoping to close that gap here.

    We have a daughter, Mia, who is about 18 months and is amazing! She was our fresh IVF ICSI transfer back in April 2012. We had a natural FET last September but lost it at about 6 weeks - it was a tough time for me. Don’t know about y’all but (from my experience) some people don’t seem to see it as much of a ‘loss’ when it’s an early loss – but for me, I’d been planning it for months so it had a big impact. And DP couldn’t understand. Thinking back, I wish I had have jumped on here for some understanding and support… hence – here I am this time round.

    Anywho – AF arrived on Saturday just gone so my scan has been booked for 2nd of July and hopefully from there we’ll be able to arrange a trigger and transfer date.

    In the meantime, I’m a psych honours student (3rd year) and in the middle of exams. I'm finding it difficult to concentrate on that, and not be distracted by the excitement of the FET!! I'm planning a massage for after exams to unwind and get rid of some residual stress, and also looking to try acupuncture too – so it was interesting reading of others’ experience of that. I suppose, it just helps to try and gain some control over something that is pretty much out of my control – but whatever works I say .

    All the best to all of you, I’m looking forward to sharing in our journeys!

    Hugs to all x

    Hi Ali welcome aboard, great to have you with us

    I've never had a loss (never had a BFP) but I think most people would agree a loss is a loss no matter when it happens. Utterly devastating. In fact I imagine the loss is still devastating on a cycle where no eggs are retrieved or fertilised, it's having the possibility disappear and everything that goes with it that hurts.

    But anyway good to have you with us, let's go July!!

    Hi everyone,

    Is it ok if I join in here? DH and I just had an appointment with our fertility specialist yesterday and confirmed that we’ll be starting ivf when my next cycle arrives (in 2 weeks or so). We have our appointment with the nurses next week, and then just have to wait until CD1! Yikes.

    I have so many mixed feelings about it that I’m sure you have all been through! Relief to be doing ‘something’, worry that it won’t work, anxiety about the process itself (physical and emotional), concern about how we will afford this! I also don’t know what to do work-wise in terms of time off for appointments etc. Hmm.. still have to give that one some thought. Anyway, hoping for the best and trying to read as much as I can.

    All the very best to you amazing people going through this. Fingers crossed for lots of good results in July/August.

    A bit of background: Me – 33, Lap for severe endo + large endometrioma April 2013, TTC since then with no success, HSG with lipiodol flush in March 2014 and a further 3 months of TTC after that. DH – 36, swimmers ok.

    @MrsChino welcome aboard, you're in good company here - you and I have similar stats I think in terms of endo - I'm just about to start my first IVF ICSI cycle too.

    Thanks @ScubaGal!

    I gather from your name you're a diver - I've only been diving for a few years, but I absolutely love it!

    Good luck getting started with your cycle

    Looks like there has been heaps of chatter and sharing, lovely to have plenty of you/us going through this at the same time and getting it. I find if you've not been in this boat...some don't get it. Anyway...Finally Tuesday arrived and I saw my FS yesterday for FET and started primolut. (AF rarely visits due to PCOS). Feeling really nauseated-I have taken it before and been fine- anyone else have this? Only just started...in a few weeks I'd love it to be morning sickness! Will be glad then!! Fingers crossed for all of us!

    Hi, welcome @Ali77 ! I have an 18 month old too. Sorry to hear of your loss. I was at the hospital today (due to messing up my meds) and heard a woman sobbing behind a curtain near me and caught snippets of what had happened and I started crying myself. She was going through a new round of IVF after a loss. I had to stop thinking about it at work as my eyes kept welling up and going red. The nurse kept saying 'I'm sorry, life just isn't fair' God, isn't that the truth.

    Welcome @MrsChino good luck to you! I found the first few cycles of IVF to be pretty exciting really, it's the repeated failures that wear you down, so I really hope your journey is short!

    AFM I had a shocking morning. Discovered that I had left my puregon out of the fridge yesterday. So I put it back in the fridge, took a shot from my other vial and went to the hospital in the morning to get my bloods done. Then popped along to the fertility ward to tell them what had happened. The nurse told me to chuck it away and that a large vial like that was worth nearly 2K. I was just so embarrassed and shocked, I apologised and felt absolutely horrified.

    So.....I got my results this arvo and was instructed to start taking the orgalutran on saturday....but I had misread the instructions as starting today! Ugh (this is a new protocol for me). So I will be a vial short next week (god knows how much this stuff is!). The nurse was good about it but after the f&ck up this morning, hearing that poor woman in distress and just generally having a ****ty few weeks with my broken arm I am feeling pretty raw and fed up of feeling tired and acting like an airhead. *sigh* Think I am at my wits end with all this and I'm not even at the difficult bit yet! (dreaded TWW)

    Anyway, thanks for listening.

    @Bongley sorry you've had such a shocking morning, sounds really tough. I can imagine it would have been distressing to bear witness to that other woman's pain.

    Hang in there.

    Thanks @ScubaGal yeah it really did affect me and I'm not normally a very teary person. Think my stress tolerance reserves are a bit low.
