I've had chemicals before IVF but never tested early enough to get a clear line and make it to bt. Just feels like too much to bare right now, but the sun is shining and xmas is in the air and all that - so have to put on a brave face somehow.
    Thanks so much for your love and concern. I hope you're all doing well xxx

    ps @BlondeinBrisvegas I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. What an overwhelming time that must have been for you. Hugs xx
    I'm so sorry love - that's just awful. Drink some plonk and be kind to yourself. Thinking of you x

    Thanks lovelies. I am doing ok, I was totally devastated for the first few days but that was also down to a hormone crash, as AF has arrived now. In hindsight I think last transfer was probably a very early chemical too. I used the clinics poas to test early, thinking it was sensitive, but it's actually a lot less so than the FRERs. Without tmi, af had the tell tale signs.
    I'm just finding it so hard to muster any hope right now, and worried about how this monthly hell, on top of grief for my father, is impacting my little girl. DH says it is a step closer to the goal, but I just don't feel it right now.
    @Penny75 Hope your tww is going well x

    Nereid, so sorry to hear about your chem I also worry about how this is affecting my child too.

    Penny, thinking of you for the TWW
    @Kelly70 how are you going? I'm on holidays at the moment, just kicking back and relaxing, I'll think about doing FETs when we get back.

    BiB, hope the move went well and you, DP and Lilly are settling in well.

    Vix & Ralph/ette, Missy, Jem, Biscotti and anyone else reading along

    Default Starting IVF Mar/Apr 2014 - aged 43, single #3

    Hey @SpringRain and everyone else reading along,

    AFM: I've been coasting along nicely and waiting for my subconscious brain to work out what the frack to do next. I've been on one date and it reminded me of why I like being and doing things on my own! I may dip my toe in the water again though, whilst I'm working through next steps.

    I had a nice little win @Jem70, with our FS who contacted the donor nurse at melb ivf and asked if I could be extended til end of Jan (rather than trying to squeeze one in over Chrissy and New Year). Donor nurse said FS also said she was going to be away over the new year - but I think she pulled a string to be helpful - and I appreciate that so much. There lies the difference bw old FS and new... I'm really not sure new FS is my best option at this point - I've decided that if I do another cycle next year it will def be at Melb. With my more accessible FS, that I feel comfortable with. Funny how things cycle round!

    Slight problem in that I'm in NZ for a week at the end of Jan, and I just got AF today so I'll be cutting it super fine if my next cycle starts mid Jan.. So I may have to suggest to FS that I go on the OCP until Feb, argh.

    Otherwise doing well, staying healthy, following everyone else's stories and looking fwd to starting 2.5 weeks leave at the end of this week (yaaaay).
    @Penny75 how you travelling through your 2ww?
    @Nereid, more big hugs to you.

    Everyone else, massive hugs xx

    I'm 6dp5dt and this morning I've woken up to what I think is AF starting I've had bad AF like cramping every day since transfer but I haven't read too much into it as I know cramping can be a side effect from crinone. This morning the cramps aren't nearly as bad as they have been but are still there. Hoping and praying this is implantation bleeding but feeling pretty bloody defeated at the moment I had been planning on testing around day 9 (Friday). Blood test is on Monday. Would it be too early to do a home test this morning??? Or maybe I should just wait it out and see if AF ramps up fully? This freaking sucks.

    @Penny75 It's so hard, eh? Cramps can mean good or bad. I had a lot of cramps with this chemical, but I can't know if I wouldn't have had them had it been a successful pregnancy. I had no cramps with my daughter, but there are many women who have constant cramping, or cramping around AF and have a positive outcome.
    The decision about testing is a hard one. So many women do test early. You also need to take into account the pregnyl and how long that takes to leave your system. I think standard is 5-7 days but have heard as long as 9. I'm going to try my hardest not to test early in future, but so so hard to resist. Hugs xx

    @Penny75 and @Nereid - I agree on testing being a tough one - I had pregnyl in my system right up until a couple of days before my BT, my body seemed to hang onto it for ages. Sure messed with my head seeing a faint line. Having said that, I would find it super hard not to POAS because I love to POAS, but know that it may mess with your head.

    @Penny75 that's what happened to me - I tested. Unless you have had boosters it is very likely the trigger is out of your system. I wanted to know. Sending you big hugs - we all know what you are feeling right now xo
