@BubbleandSqueaks, I think that is a wonderful attitude to have, especially when this whole process is fraught with unknowns
Welcome @amiracle4me and @Littleve
We are definitely looking like a group of 'tough nuts', going through so much and still stepping up to the table to do it all again.
@Littleve my way of thinking has changed dramatically over the years and I'm focusing all my energy on the positive
It's not for everyone but no harm in trying.
I'm waiting for AF to start on the 1st of September (nothing like starting the month off with a BANG) than start my injections. I have also taken 2 weeks off over the EPU and transfer days.

Hi can I join in too, I'm hoping to start late sep. Can someone please tell me more about the long reg cycle? Is it good for poor responders?
@bubblesandsqueaks 'tough nuts' ha, I like it.
@MissBell I'm not sure who its good for to be honest. I was put on the pill start long down reg because I produce a good amount of eggs and they want them to grow more evenly so that there are more mature ones to collect. It suppresses your follicles before they are stimulated. Plus I'd been on the shorter antagonist cycle for 3 rounds and had no success so it was also a change. I was successful on my first down reg (4th cycle) so thats what the FS is keeping me on. Hope that helps.
Hi all, just wanted to jump in and tell you my story to give you hope. Im 43 and was sick of waiting forever for Mr Wrong so decided to cycle with donor sperm at a reputable Sydney clinic. I did 4 full cycles and got pregnant on my 4th cycle with only one egg collected at pickup. I'm now 32 weeks and 2 weeks away from starting maternity leave. So yes it can happen if you're over 42 and with your own eggs. Wish you all the best if luck with your upcoming cycles.
I'm subbing here too if that's ok, the July/Aug thread is a bit huge now... I'll be doing a FET probably around 25 Aug having had a miscarriage with my first ever pregnancy in July.
The TWW will put me into September.
Thanks @Helsbaby it's always great to hear the positive stories!
Hi all others, I recognise some of you from other threads....here's hoping September is the lucky month for us all!
