Enjoy your break biscotti!
Thanks beautiful ladies - although I am a bit scared to be a testing buddy - I don't want to jinx things or something, is that weird? I think it stems back to when I was preg in 2012 at the same time as one of my BFs. We literally both started bleeding on the same day, both nearly 12 weeks and as we went in for our scans I thought, odds are one of us will miscarry. And it was me, argh! So there's my silly superstition.
But YAY for the emby on board Scuba, such a nice feeling isn't it!
And Biscotti lovely - fabulous that you have a new plan ready to go upon return from paradise!! What's the new protocol, can you share?
Evidently the clomid makes your ovaries stimulate differently to all the others types I've tried so far.
Feeling a bit flat today - weepy too. Not sure exactly why, I can't pinpoint a reason, just woke up this way. Possibly because of AF arriving. Possibly a come down from constantly cycling over the past 4 months. Possibly because the FS gave us the DE talk yesterday (again). Possibly if this newest protocol doesn't work then we may have reached the end. My E2 levels weren't very good either FS said. He'd expect higher.
It's really a struggle being a low responder with lazy ovaries and out of date eggs.
It's a ****ty ride Biscotti, no doubt about it. But feel happy that you are doing the very best you can to realize your dream. I got the donor egg talk before this last cycle too, I just let it bounce off me because I'm not there yet. It's hard work, I'm going through it too and the sadness is something that cannot be minimized on any level - but back on the Sonia Kruger topic - she said something that resonated with me - she said something like, "far worse things happen to people than not being able to have a child. I absolutely refuse to feel sorry for myself. I just won't do it".
I really can't handle it when people/friends who have kids already, give me the "poor you" vibe.. It's often not actually said, it's just something that hangs in the air. I have an amazing, blessed life and that will still be there for me when I come out on the other side of this. We really are one of the lucky ones kids or no kids. Sending you a massive hug Biscotti xx
Couple of BFPs this week on the other over 40 thread, amazing!!
Okay I'm trying not to obsess but I feel way too good today. Much less tired, boobs are much less sore, my head's clear (so clear I am powering through work after being in a fog for a few days). Argh.
Don't give up just yet Biscotti and Kelly, but yes there was life before ivf and there will be life after ivf too. I felt the same way before my last cycle (and that was going to be my last) and I was mentally prepared to move on if unsuccessful. It's amazing the way things turn out.
