    Skyler.....in order to have a signature you actually need a certain number of posts, I think only 5 or 10, so it will allow you to do that soon.

    Leyshoja.... that all sounds so dire. Sorry, I don't have any tips, but considering it's been going on for so long and your clinic is still closed, I think going to the ED is a good idea. I'm surprised your clinic is still closed though - mine only closes on Christmas Day, but there are nurses there the rest of the time, even when the FSs are away.

    Kenta.... you must almost be due about now. How much longer?

    Gnh and Killarneygirl.... how did you both go in your last cycles? Thinking of you and wishing you both the best for 2015 xx

    I just got onto the ivf clinic and it seems my specialist has decided to take an extra couple of days, back tomorrow, so hopefully I'll get an u/s then. They said I can to to ER if worried or its too heavy, but I feel fine, just frustrated, so will wait until tomorrow I think.

    Hi all. .. Just catching up after the holiday period so forgive my epic post.
    @Skyler welcome and good luck with your upcoming cycle.
    @BlondeinBrisvegas I am so sorry to hear of your friend's loss. It is totally heartbreaking and so close to Christmas also. Just be there for her while she works it all out. I have one friend who has listened to me for hours on the phone rambling, crying and changing topics at the drop of a hat like a crazy woman (I even asked her do you think I am going crazy? Lol) it makes all the difference and 5 weeks later I am so greatful to have had her.
    @Petal40 Oh I felt everything you said in your frustrated vent! I have had so many people tell me I will be right, next time I get pregnant it will be different etc. I just want to scream that not all of us get pregnant just because a man waved his $@# at them! Yesterday I had a pregnant woman I know prancing around bragging about her scan and talking baby baby baby. I was probably a bit rude but got sick of it and said "oh yeah is that your morphology scan? That is the one where we found out our baby had died" I mean it has only been a few weeks be sensitive people! Although karma might get me now for being so awful to her!
    @leyshoja I am so sorry for your mc. It sounds like it has been a nightmare for you. You are a real trooper. Perhaps it might be worth investigating a d&c of you are not passing products completely by now?
    @MGC Bertie wow great news on your numbers. I can't help but think because you have done the hard yards getting utd that maybe you deserve to have an easy uneventful pregnancy. So fingers crossed.
    @Faithandhopelove when do you start stimming?

    AFM my first AF after the birth has come. I have never been so keen to see it as I have been anxious to start again. I want my baby so badly I ache for it! I am now on the contraceptive pill until the 16th then start stimming on the 21st of Jan, egg pick up is February 2nd. So bring on the new year!

    As an aside I came back to work today with every intention of quitting. I have been offered a job at half the money but in an all girl, postive environment where 2 of them have done ivf and they will give me all the time off I need. My (previously stresshead) boss has been so wonderful today that I got the guilts and haven't done it yet. Sitting here and my desk contemplating how to resign when he is now being so nice lol

    Oh @Fudge09 I'm hoping and praying for you. You deserve all the happiness after what you went through.
    Afm (boy I feel like I'm saying that a lot lately) I rang my ob at home (he did give me the number for if I got desperate) and he said 'why on earth didn't you ring last week !'. Anyway he got me to go to my gp for a referral for an urgent u/s which I did a couple of hours ago. The u/s tech couldn't work out what was going on 'in there'. Her face !! She wouldn't answer any questions with a direct answer and told me nothing !
    I've looked at the scans and nothing is discernible so I'm assuming it's just one big congealed clot in there which explains the continuous ****** of clots I'm seeing with not that much bleeding. I am so over this and as upset now as I was when I found out Bub was not viable. I'm just so disappointed to STILL have no answer. I've actually had a cry this arvo over it ?!? Worse is that my ob is back tomorrow so I see him in the am but he's already told me if I need a d&c (which I obviously do) he can't do it till next week . Right now, I am just so frustrated and feel so unlucky. I'm over this Ivf 'journey'. I've decided to plan my backup - the holiday/project/next big thing. I have to start focussing on something else to look forward to. Maybe NZ again or one of those Europe river cruises... Any suggestions? I think I'll go to the bottle shop while I contemplate it..

    Hi everyone,
    MGC Bertie, I am impressed you can keep track of everyone! It's great to see so many expectant and proud mums on that roll call. And interesting to see how many have had to go beyond cycle#4. The official website for my clinic says 96% of people who have success, do so within 4 cycles, a stat which has had me very down, as I am embarking on #5. But seeing so many of you have success after more than 4 cycles is a great help and makes me not want to quit just yet. Thanks for the tip re the signature. And hoping this one is your take home baby! How amazing that it happened via iui.

    BlondeinBris and Fudge, thank you for your warm welcomes. Blonde, what is AACEP? Fudge, your OPU will be the week after mine. However I am doing PGD so potential transfer not for a couple of months.

    leyshoja, sounds like an awful miscarriage and all the more difficult being holiday time for your Dr. I know what you mean about being over this 'journey'. We have not had a proper holiday in the last 12 months and the other day I pinned DH down to a week in Byron Bay at the start of March where we will either be celebrating a great PGD result or drowning our sorrows (yet again). But it is so important to have something else planned other than a cycle of ivf.

    I can relate to so many of your stories and look forward to following you all in 2015.

    @leyshoja oh the 'journey' that made me laugh! Oh, I really feel for you, I hope you get the D&C done and over with. I had my BFP after a D&C and I've heard of many others too (although I know too many can be bad for you too) I can't wait for you to start a new cycle and get your bub.
    @Fudge Oh my god, did she know what had happened to you??!! What an insensitive pr!ck of a woman. I am angry for you.
    @Skyler it is actually very inspiring seeing how many women get their babies through perseverance. If I'd known and been on bub hub earlier I wouldn't have been so ready to give up before my first BFP (I was on the verge of getting a donor).

    Speaking of donors I am just trying to convince my partner to go down that route. I am not at all sure that I will manage to persuade him. I've told him I'd like a plan from him by the time I book into see a counselor in three weeks.

    The plan is either:-
    1. Give up/do nothing
    2. Carry on with 1 or 2 more IVF
    3. Donor eggs.

    It's really in his hands. I am just trying to force a decision as early as possible, otherwise he will default to option #1. *sigh*

    Good luck everyone!!

    Leyshoja. Love the bottle shop comment. I've felt like doing that a lot on this ****ty IVF journey.

    Fudge I think you did mighty well not too give that woman a black eye! Insensitive bleep.

    Bongley don't give up until your ready to. I remember Dr Phil (flash back time) saying he had his vasectomy reversed because he realised his wife was 90% passionate about having another child while he was only 50% passionate about not having another one.

    Skyler I have heard the figures for IVF success too. I have also seen an article where they talked about IVF success occuring either within the first few rounds and in those people who refused to give up! My FS admitted that one of his clients who is pregnant at 45 refused to give up even though he told her to. I say humph to the figures!

    Wave to everyone else.

    Happy new year lovely ladies, hope against hope it's a good one for us all x

    @Skyler welcome :-) Best wishes for your journey.
    @Bongley Good luck with D. We're starting to get to a point of interesting negotiations too, this whole thing is a massive test of relationships I think.

    @leyshoja So heartbreaking what you're going through. Really hope you get your DC or some definitive ending soon. I'm totally with you on the bottle shop trip!

    @MGCBertie Thanks for the amazing role call. So lovely to hear things are cruising along nicely for you.
    @Fudge I really hope you get to try again soon. And so glad you spoke up to that woman. No karma coming your way at all, unless good. How can people be so insensitive?

    AFM We tried the old fashioned way this month during clinic closure, but not holding out much hope. AF due in a couple of days. We'll do another fet this month with embies 6 and 7.
    I don't know how I'm feeling any more. I have good days and bad days. Probably a little more fatalistic than before. A younger close friend just told me she is pregnant, her second, both pretty much conceived in the first month. And while not exactly jumping up and down I felt almost none of that awful envy that I've found so debilitating in the past. A little perhaps, but so much better which makes me think I might be moving falteringly forward, and its a good feeling.

    Oh by the way @Skyler On that role call #5 for me means I've had 5 transfers, but only one cycle. Was that what you were thinking? I find it really confusing as to whether people or stats are referring to cycles or embryo transfers.

    @leyshoja good luck with the ob today. I have been thinking about you and hoping it goes well. Yes quite frankly i would like to take this "journey" and shove it up the clacker of whoever decided we "need" it. Don't you get peeved when people tell you it is for a reason blah blah blah. What f $% € ing reason? Can you tell I am going through my angry stage of grief? Lol I hope you get a conclusion to your mc soon as it would be so upsetting to not only be going through it but also knowing it is taking precious time from your cycles. Ps I recommend the European cruise! We did one starting in France (Marseilles) and it took us to france, italy, sicily, Malta and ended up in Spain. Just do it! I have dreams of going back and travelling more through France but we had planned to do it with baby in tow. Bit hard when all your money keeps going to ivf. I have noticed my fs drives a new bmw!
    @faithandhopellove I also saw that dr Phil episode! I thought it was amazing that he cared so much about his wife and her desire to have a child that he just went and did it.
    Yes the crazy woman from the other day knew we had lost our baby when she carried on. She is one of those people that you would swear was the first person in the world to ever get pregnant. She doesn't stop commentating every single detail.
    @Bongley oh I really hope it all goes well with your dh. Maybe you should try giving him some more info on donor eggs. Eg that your chances of conception increase dramatically and that the embryo is as good as the age of the donor. He may be getting disheartened after all of your attempts and see it as just another try without realising it changes the game completely.
    @Skyler awesome we can be stimming partners together. I also wanted to test my embryos but unfortunately don't ever get any that make it to freezing. Good luck with it all I hope you get lots of lovely embies.

    Ps still haven't resigned yet as my boss is out today. Sitting reading bh to get inspiration for my next cycle. I figure if he comes back and sees me surfing the net what is the worst that can happen? Maybe he will fire me? Lol

    @Nereid my heart goes out to you. Don't give up yet. You are still using embies from your first stim cycle so maybe if you have no luck with them you can think of a new cycle as a new start? I see what you mean about the roll call numbers but I think even if it is FET it is still an ivf attempt to have a baby. You don't have to go through all of the injecting for it to mean any more or any less. It still feels the same when you get the dreaded bfn.
