    Well done, 8 is a solid haul. Hope you are enjoying your down time. The embryo banking is a strange process isn't it. I found it was nicer sometimes as you didn't have the pressure of a bfn every cycle. Have some yummy stuff tonight xafm feeling quite crap actually. I'm on a higher dose of fsh so I guess that will explain the thumpy, won't ever quite go away, headache I've had since I started jabbing. Just went shopping and felt like I was about to faint, blurred vision and everything ... But yet I try and do too much all the time, am cooking for my dad and sister tonight, at least I haven't got work until later on this week. Decided on some acupuncture/massage tomorrow to help me chill out then I've got to have an echo/see cardiologist tomorrow for my stupid blood pressure at my endocrinologists behest. *sigh* and I've got a terrible feeling we are going to have a cyclone for my egg pickup travel dates! it's already flooding here. Boo!

    Next to the tea room is wrong on soooo many levels!!!!
    I told DP about my friend wanting to be an egg donor for us this afternoon. I told him first not to freak out and not to say no straight away but just to keep it in the back of his mind.
    He said.....um actually I don't think he's said anything yet, in shock I guess!

    Well done Chiefsgirl, good luck for fertilisation. Hope you're not in too much discomfort.

    Well at least you've broken the ice about that topic MissDa!

    Butterfly watch those cyclones! OMG it must be scarey. Take it you live in the tropics. We don't have cyclones in this neck of the woods, just a bit of a recent issue with beaches being closed due to great white sharks (hottest days of the Summer mind you).

    omg I just saw u had a shark eat someone down there for 2 days in a row! The movie JAWS comes to mind! Not a good time to start surfing

    Speaking of bleeding to death im bummed because I got home today and my abdomen needle marks were bleeding everywhere. I was wearing a black dress and the blood was all down to my thighs, gross. Has anyone had this happen? It must be the clexane. I've sticky taped a pad to my stomach to catch the blood. I checked my blood pressure and it was normal. God, what a horror show.

    Wow Butterfly, no, I've had the occasional bruise when I've needled myself in the tummy but never bleeding. Absolutely must be the clexane. But worth checking with your doctor because that sounds unusual. Yeah don't go swimming around here with that sort of bleeding!

    Haha totally I would be shark poo in no time! Bleeding has stopped today after I slept with a tight dressing on it. Kind of wondering if I should skip acupuncture today and just get a massage instead - those needles are pretty fine though. DH votes to skip it but I was so looking forward to it.

    OMFG! I just did my first injection!! I couldn't sleep last night because I was SO worried about it, I was totally freaking myself out - but I just got really firm with myself and said, just do the first one, and if it is really bad, you don't have to do it again.

    So I put on the numbing Emla cream, waited an hour, then didn't muck around, just went and did the job without hesitating. And with the Emla, I did not feel one thing with the needle at all - nothing! But there was some stinging after the fluid went in, so I grabbed some ice and it was gone within thirty seconds.

    I cannot believe I can do this! I have totally shocked myself, I really thought that was it, I would have to give up my dream of having baby because I couldn't face daily injections - but here I am, I've done one and I survived! So freaking proud of myself :-) I can do this!

    Thanks everyone for your support, such great ladies on this thread! I have a scan on Monday to see if I have any decent follicles and then we trigger and either go naturally, or do an IUI, haven't decided yet. I fall pregnant naturally fairly easily, so there doesn't seem to be a problem with that, so I'm inclined to not do IUI - but I might take hubby for the scan and talk to Wazza and see what he thinks too.

    One of the reasons I don't want to do IUI is mainly because of hubby and what some of you have shared here - there is NO way in hell he could perform in a clinic 'porn' room. It took us four goes (not all at once, lol) before we could get a sample at home to take in for sperm analysis. So with the clinic being over an hour away, I don't know if we'd have time to get a sample at home (and even that is iffy), and get it to the clinic in time.

    But at least this month I've got Letrozole and FSH to get those eggys happening - woohoo!

    @Leisylou Yippee!! Well done Luv!! See?? You can do anything you put your mind too!! Am proud of you Girl!! Yep, see what Wazza reckons and go with that if you agree. I would think it would be ok getting the sample from home to the clinic?? An hour should be ok..see what Wazza reckons about that too!! Will be watching you and the other Ladies progress from the sidelinesxoxox

    @Butterfly39 Yep, sounds like the Clexane Luv!! Being a blood thinner any kind of bleed is exaggerated whether it be from the needle or cutting yourself shaving etc. I remember bleeding like a stuck pig when I cut my finger cooking @ it was only a minor one too!! Check with Wazza or Kate if you're not sure

    How did your scan go @Petal40 ? @Leisylou you must be SO relieved !! I remember that first needle and how stressed I was. Its so much easier from then on. Good on you girl !! @Butterfly39 - wow, thats a lot of blood. I've never been on clexane, but I presume its a blood thinner of some type.. ? @MissDa, I'm glad you were able to broach the subject and sounds like your other half has some thinking to do lol.
    Any update Chiefs and @LetsMakeItHappen ? Hanging out here for some good news updates !!
    AFM, blood test is ok. HCG is under 2 now so this cycle is a goer. My CD10 ultrasound is next Wednesday, and looks like FET will be on the 25th by my calcs - DP's birthday. Lets hope that's a good omen.
    I've gotta say, all the follies, EPU's, MGC Bertie being UTD, and general positive results going on with the over 40's is making me more and more regretful that I can't try naturally for a bit longer or try again with another EPU. I feel I need to be more grateful that I ended up with an egg donor so quickly. I also feel guilty that perhaps I wasnt quite ready for it and some other poor woman probably a lot more desperate than me could have been reaping the benefit of my donor. Somebody needs to give me a good slap upside the head. I really expected to wait at least 12 months so would still have had a slight chance on my own. Just keep telling myself - I will have the baby I was meant to have. Whose quote was that anyway ? Its a good one.

    @leyshoja, yeah it was amazingly short donor wait time, and might have to go down on record as the shortest donor wait ever, but yes there are still a lot of emotional issues to work through regarding the whole can of worms... Be patient with yourself as you probably weren't expecting it to all happen so quickly, and sometimes the heart needs time to catch up with what the head is doing. Sounds like everything is on track though... I kinda wish I had the problem of being too efficient x
    @BlondeinBrisvegas thanks for the kind words of encouragement, your posts always cheer me up! X
    @Leisylou - damn straight you can do this, Missy! So happy you overcame your fears. It's all downhill from here . Good for you. X

    afm oozing away happily. My Aunty recommended those little circular bandaids which seem to be doing the trick. My tight dressing from last night stopped the bleeding. My tummy is puffed out like a rice bubble, must be something happening in there. Scan tomorrow morning should reveal something. At this rate not going to be looking very sexy for valentines day which is a shame because DH keeps asking me my lingerie sizes, how does a girl look chic/alluring with the 'bruised/bloated pincushion look' I'm currently sporting . Keep reminding myself these are 'first world problems'!
