    Hi & hope you're all enjoying your weekends

    Got my call from Concept today while I was out bushwalking.. I was literally walking in circles at home waiting for the call and had to get out the house.. Typical I would receive the call while I was out in unreliable phone reception area.. I ran so fast back home to return their call..

    So, my baseline is all normal and the nurse wanted to start me tonight on Gonal F injections which would have meant we would have had to be in Perth this Thursday for day 6 US but due to AF arriving early it was just not going to happen (due to travel and work) so we decided to start my injections tomorrow and be in Perth on Friday for day 6 US. I didn't want this decision to affect the outcome but I didn't really have any choice and the nurse didn't seem it would be a big deal starting on day 3 , instead of day 2.

    I feel strangely calm but it alternates with feeling anxious , scared.. there's a little excitement there. I am now trying to sort out accomodation in Perth. I am allowing 14 days from the first day 6 ultrasound, hopefully that's enough time.. I had so many questions for the nurse I forgot to ask her if she thought that was enough time to allow. So tricky being from the country!

    So tomorrow will be the beginning of my first ivf cycle! Can't believe the day is here, I hope I sleep tonight and to think this is just the beginning ! Thanks for reading my thoughts and hope everyone is going ok

    ps.

    In preparation of spending two weeks, away from the comfort of my home, in Perth and being a total ivf newbie could you girls suggest things I might need to bring from home, so that I won't have to buy once I'm in Perth.

    I'm already thinking..
    Heat pack , essential oils and diffuser, stack of books to read.. Anything else you think I would need and should bring with me? (I'm thinking things that will make the time a little more tolerable, ofcourse I will be bringing meds and other essentials, just incase you thought I was a total idiot!)

    Your input would be hugely appreciated.

    That's awesome news @babygirl7 stuff the negative nurse! It's going in the right direction... Good luck for the next BT, will be thinking of you x

    @LunaRose its so exciting starting sometimes I think it's easier doing all the injections and scans etc as at least you feel like you are doing something! Good luck for your first cycle.
    @PinkPopsicle are you talking about a fresh or frozen? They cost totally different
    @TeamCarts and @loulabubble BTs are this week aren't they?!? Fingers crossed for you!!
    @MrsTugs how are you going?

    @LunaRose we start on cd3 at our clinic so I'm sure that will be fine for you.

    Afm, had my cd7bt today and numbers were rising nicely so I started centrotide. Monday is bt&scan... Hopefully will get a good idea of when epu will be then so I can work my uni exam around that!!

    There are some strong ladies in Perth. To go through something so invasive and be able to remain positive shows a real strength of character. I am hoping this little group will turn into a mothers group in about nine months for everyone!

    I have to say I haven't minded giving myself the injections so far. I started Orgalutran on friday- so far so good although I am a bit moody.

    Goodluck to you ladies, where ever you are in your cycles. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    @babygirl7 thanks heaps for asking I am going ok, having more ups than downs now. Took a while to hit me that not only am I no longer preg but that I was also very sick and had an operation! Saw the FS on wed and he said we could start straight away (if we wanted but not what he advised emotionally) so we think it's better to wait til jan. We finally dtd and it was quite painful internally so can't imagine getting back into IVF even though that's all I want really.


    Having an ok weekend thanks, finally went back to work yest for a few hours but didn't see many people as not many people rostered. Monday is what I'm dreading- walking past people wondering how much they know (plus whether they've seen my bits!).


    Hoping you have a good weekend taking it easy and keeping that emby snuggled in. X
